    Default Cabbage and GERD

    I suffer from GERD, and take a generic Prilosec 2x a day to keep it in
    check.

    However, I noticed a couple of weeks ago that every time I ate boiled
    cabbage (from my corned beef dinner) I didn't experience the heartburn
    like usual. This was the same story when I made a big pot of Bigos
    this weekend. It seems that the absurd amount of cabbage in that stew
    kills GERD for several hours after I eat it.

    Anyone else notice this with cabbage or other foods?

    If this is the case, I think I'm going to try to eat cabbage daily. I
    like it, it's pretty inexpensive, and I don't get any side effects
    from it. I know that a lot of people say it gives them gas, but it
    doesn't do that to me. (And neither do beans. Such a
    disappointment).

    It seems better to eat a vegetable than to take a pill for things, no?

    Cabbage contains a lot of sulphur which aids the stomach and digestive
    tract. If you suffer from GERD you
    probably don't have enough HCL in your stomach and the cabbage
    probably helps.

    Have you thought about juicing cabbage? It's used a lot to help with
    digestive problems.

    Hot Buffalo wings relieve my GERD. The cayenne pepper (Durkee Red Hot)
    acts as an anesthetic. Spaghetti and mild wings are a killer for me.

    Why go to all that trouble when Frank's Quality Kraut juice is still

    Well, for one thing, fresh raw cabbage juice is nothing like kraut
    juice.

    GERD has to be caused by something. It's not the natural state. Most
    likely it is caused by something you eat almost all of the time and
    never considered it might be hamring you. I went wheat free never
    considering it anything other than fattening and suddenly my cough
    caused by constant GERD went away.

    I did notice that certain foods turned it off unitl the next meal.

    Absolutely. Have you tried other cabbage family foods? Brocolli and so
    on.

    Cabbage juice seems to be a traditional treatment for acid reflux. Try
    the other cruciferous vegs and see if they work as well. Cabbage every
    day could get a little dull maybe.

    Alternatively, it could be caused by a hiatal hernia, as it is for my
    husband and two children.

    And it's not the greatest for some people's thyroids if it's raw.

    cruciferous appears to also include broccoli and collard greens, two
    more vegetables I enjoy greatly.

    Cabbage is a wonderful food for the stomach. It calms the spasms, digests
    easily and soothes the colon. Plus it is a wonderful source of fiber. You
    should try cabbage juice with pear as a digestive tonic. I love cabbage as
    it really helps my weak digestion. It's amazing what it can do.

    DING DING DING!!!! Doctors *assume* GERD is caused by too much acid when in
    many cases it is caused by too little. So what do they prescibe? Acid
    lowering drugs!

    I love cabbage and pear juice. I juice one whole cabbage and one small
    pear. It tastes GREAT! And my tummy loves it.

    That's what we called it on my last expedition to the Congo where after a
    grueling 90 day canoe trip all but 2 of my Namibian guides were killed by
    giant tarantulas, I wrestled a 50 foot python to the death with just my wits
    and bare hands. Afterwards we feasted on its flesh then smoked cigars and
    drank whiskey under the vast African sky with happy tummies all around.

    > Does it make you fart a lot?


    Now that's gay.
