Prevention of Acid Reflux

The best acid reflux remedies and prevention techniques mirror the management of symptoms. Lifestyle changes can stop heartburn and prevent a chronic condition.

Make these lifestyle changes to prevent acid reflux:

  • Change your diet for acid reflux prevention. Eat a low-fat, high-fiber diet with plenty of whole grains and low-calorie snacks. Avoid caffeine, chocolate, alcohol and tobacco.
  • Avoid taking aspirin and other medication, but speak with your doctor before stopping your current regiment. When taking medication of any type, drink plenty of water.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Exercise lightly five times per week to maintain a reasonable weight.
  • Don’t eat less than three hours before going to sleep.
  • Sometimes, changing the position you sleep in can also help.
