    I have a Hiatus Hernia & am suffering a lot of pain. I am taking Omeprazole 2 a day to help. I'm now waiting to have an Endoscopy. I am reading anything I can find on this subject but one thing I'm finding frustration is no-where can I find what exactly I CAN drink. Water, is fine but I've been told to not have too much because it will wash the acid back up. I'm really thirsty & daren't drink anything other than sips of water, but it isn't enough? Can I drink the flavoured milk drinks? Please can you help? Many Thanks...Julie

      Hi Julie, You can drink heaps of water, it's ok! It's just a matter of timing. Drink your water up to half an hour before meals, then stop, and wait 1-2 hours after the meal before starting to drink again. If you drink mainly water (warm is fine if it's easier that way - this is soothing for your digestion) then you'll get your hydration back up. Best Wishes, Ali

    Is it possible to have a meeting with you to discuss my diet. I had two ulcers which burst and wish to avoid a recurrence,

    I have suffered from acid reflux for several years, I’m not too bad in the day, but night times are a real dread. I get pain in my upper stomach and acid in my mouth. Dr medication is no real help. Your food advice looks hopeful, so I will try it. I am a 73 year old female.

      It is also helpful to really focus on chewing every mouthful thoroughly, relaxing whilst eating and ensuring that you are sitting up well, with your shoulders back. Don't drink within half an hour either side of food. These practical steps can be amazingly effective. Best Wishes, Ali
