Bile reflux occurs when bile — a digestive liquid produced in your liver — backs up (refluxes) into your stomach and the tube that connects your mouth and stomach (esophagus). Bile is often a suspected cause of reflux when people respond incompletely or not at all to powerful acid-suppressant medications.
Likewise, how do you reduce bile?
But because many people experience both acid reflux and bile reflux, your symptoms may be eased by lifestyle changes:
- Stop smoking.
- Eat smaller meals.
- Stay upright after eating.
- Limit fatty foods.
- Avoid problem foods and beverages.
- Limit or avoid alcohol.
- Lose excess weight.
- Raise your bed.

Green or yellow vomit, also known as bile, is produced by the liver and stored in the gallbladder. The release of bile occurs when an individual is vomiting on an empty stomach or is suffering from bile reflux.
