  1. OUCH, “mints to tame acid reflux”! NOT! One of the well-recognized triggers for acid reflux symptoms is……mints. I would suggest a pack of non-mint, sugar-free gum instead. I love the water for those suffering from GERD, and alkaline water (pH of 9+) is even better since a higher pH will reduce acid reflux symptoms even faster. Also, love the snacks since eating five or six small meals will reduce the urge later in the day to consume a large meal. I hope this helps, and the following link provides an expanded list of items GERD sufferers should avoid – http://www.refluxmd.com/what-triggers-acid-reflux-symptoms/.
