Take the Nexium and the Greasy Food!!!
Which is better?
Taking Nexium and eat a low-fat GERD diet?
Taking Nexium and eating a regular diet (Spaghetti, BBQ Ribs, ice cream, etc.)
I am realtively new to the GERD world, and for the last 3 months have been med-free and eating very bland and low-fat. The commercials show people eating BBQ ribs and they're alright because of their magical little purple pill. I am curious, if Nexium is meant to combat all of the acid brought on by eating those fat, spicy, greasy foods; then wouldn't avoiding those foods cause the Nexium to have a different effect on your body? Many people complain, "I take Nexium and I'm on a GERD diet, but I still have horrible reflux." I mean, if the pill is designed to beat up the GERD monster, but the monster is no longer there, won't it just beat up your digestive system instead and cause more harm than good? What are your experiences with this? I would really appreciate it.
I myself would like to get on the Nexium and slowly over a period of months work my way back towards my regular eating habits.
