Brief Answer: Answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you. Your wife is probably having a reflux disease. She needs to take medications like omeprazole half an our before breakfast for about 4 -8 weeks. As far the diet is concerned, she needs to avoid coffee, citrus, tomatoes, lentils, mint, spicy food and fatty food. She should not eat full stomach. She has to eat smaller but frequent meals. She should go to bed at least 2-3 hours after food. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
