  • A diet high in refined sugar and processed foods
  • Bacterial dysbiosis
  • Hormonal imbalances (particularly during pregnancy) (8)
  • Smoking
  • Frequent alcohol consumption
  • Food sensitivities
  • High acid foods: coffee, spicy foods, citrus, mint tea and tomatoes can also increase the severity of acid reflux symptoms
