  • Acid & Spices

    I've been on the IC diet for over two years now and it's helped me a GREAT deal. Lately, though, I've found that even the slightest bit of acid will set me into a flare.
    Today I'm in a black pepper flare! I've never had a problem with it before.

    Is there any way to keep our acid at the same tolerence as before, or will it continue to go down?

    23, symptoms for 9 years, severe for 7.5. Diagnosed for 6.

    Very interesting question. I don't have a problem with spices right now...have you tried the prelief (or tums or something similar) before every meal? That might help a bit..
