I don't have the answer. I am wanting the answer also. Expecially yogurt! It really does a number on me. Everything I am reading says it's good for acid reflux. It couldn't be further from the truth for me.

Yogurt has cultures. This causes more acid and great digestion for people without acid reflux. It has something to do with the enzymes. Try foods with lots of fiber.
