While some items on the list may cause more heartburn in some than others, it is best to keep a food journal to keep a record of what causes your acid reflux to spike.

Heartburn triggers:

-Hot and spicy foods.
-Fatty, fried and greasy foods.
-Tomato based foods, garlic and onions.
-Chocolate and caffeine
-Citrus based fruits such as oranges, grapefruit, lemon, etc..
