Proper lifestyle is needed to control the symptoms:
- Take meals at same time every day
- Avoid spicy foods
- Take more of acid neutralising foods like milk after every meal
- drink cleaner water
- take more of fruits and salad
- sit upright or take a walk for atleast 2 hrs after meal. Avoid lying down
- Can add syrup gelusil after meals
- If the above does not help then adding a medicine is needed e.g omeprazole
