GRANNY SMITh:Ok, So as I am prone to reflux on a regular daily basis you can imagine how much worse it is being pregnant... the problem is EVERYthing I eat seems to give me reflux acidic or not.
I don't usually eat red meat (its called being a chickenatarian) but the other day I had some lamb and I couldn't breathe sitting up it was that bad.
So obviously some foods make it worse than others... (Bread .. goodbye toast & vegemite for breakfast) I know, I know I shouldn't be eating things with wheat or dairy in them anyway blah blah blah.. what am I to eat lentils for the rest of my life?
I decided at around 4am the other night after a ZILLION drinks of water and a ZILLION trips to the toilet and having only eaten FRUIT all day that something needed to be done.
I keep looking for natural remedies on the internet and there are all these sites saying almond this and water that and apple this and diet that .. well I tell you I tried apples and they didn't seem to do anything much UNTIL --
One day I REALLY REALLY absolutely wanted an apple like REALLy badly and there were only cooking apples in the fruit bowl .. eyuck, but I was so desperate I just ate one anyway.
Good Old Granny Smith, cleared up my throat !! MIRACLE not only that it only took one slice for me to feel better & I had some lamb for tea and then just ate the Granny before I went to bed and ... NOTHING but sweet sweet slumber.
Now I've found a website that says putting a teaspoon of natural apple cider vinegar in your water may help too ( because honestly who wants to eat a WHOLE apple every time they get a little niggle in their throat ) So I may try that too, although I'm not sure about the taste.
YAY for Granny. Lets hope it lasts.
