Hi,I also suffer from IBS and Gerd! I was on a drug (Nexium) for a year and a half for the GERD but my doc told me to get off it as it depletes calcium and other vitamins/minerals.I stopped taking it and I have to watch my diet very closely, both for IBS and Gerd.Here are the acidic foods that I must avoid. citrus fruit, tomato, lemon, fatty foods, constipating foods, red meat, olives and olive oil to name a few. I have a dietician who is very helpful with identifying foods that trigger IBS.Also, I started to eat more alkaline foods (green vegetables, root vegetables) I have found this site to be very helpful. It lists alkaline vs. acidic foods.http://www.energiseforlife.com/list_of_alkaline_foods.php It may help you with your GERD. I also bought a couple books on the topic.... Very helpful!!!Good luck!P.S. If I take tylenol too long, that also upsets my GERD.
Where there's a will there's a way!
