Coffee, tea, and carbonated beverages

Coffee, tea, and carbonated beverages not only over-relax the esophageal sphincter, which keeps stomach acid confined to the stomach, but they also can act as diuretics, which can lead to diarrhea and cramping. Caffeinated beverages can be a particular problem, especially for people with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). If you have GERD or heartburn, you should avoid mint tea; it can, however, also calm the stomach.
