Lemon is alkalising
Lemons are acidic going in but once past the stomach are actually very alkalizing. If it is bothering you, it is too soon.
Be sure that is the problem though, don’t hesitate to get looked at if it continues.
Aloe juice is soothing.
Citrus is one of the biggest triggers of gerd.
Lemon would definitely send me over the top. Citrus is one of the biggest triggers of GERD. Definitely no citrus at all. No coffee, caffeine, alcohol.
I hope you know what foods you can and can’t have.
apple cider vinegar is ok but lemon can damage you inside!!
It funny that I can not touch any citrus but apple cider vinegar makes me feel better when it is also acidic.
After some reading, I realise that lemon is very high in histamines and apple cider vinegar is only moderate. So I’m pretty sure that my GERD is caused by histamine intolerance. Can’t do any high histamine foods.
Some other people on this site might find this true for themselves as well.
its ok for me but it may not be for someone else
Try to drink it more slowly. Also to all the people saying don’t have lemons and those other foods, it doesn’t bother everyone’s acid reflux. Everyone is different.
stay away from lemon if you have acid reflux
Lemons are a big no, no. They are super acidic. Lemons are made of acid… just say no.
