Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

Two things will provide complete relief from these symptoms - medications like PPI for 4-8 weeks and certain lifestyle/dietary modifications.

The lifestyle/dietary modifications include -
1. Weight reduction if obese
2. Avoiding coffee, citrus, tomatoes, onion, fatty food, smoking, alcohol, carbonated beverages
3. Avoiding large meals and eating small frequent meals
4. Going to bed 2-3 hours after food.

I hope that answers your question.
