Thank you for the query.

Tisane de burbon might be helpful however I suggest you to focus on medicines advised by your doctor.
Your symptoms can be caused by acid reflux disease indeed. Gurgling can be also caused by increased air swallowing due to loose dentures, chewing gum, eating too fast, drinking carbonated drinks. Chronic intestines infection can also cause increased gas production.
As your symptoms might be also caused by other stomach diseases like peptic ulcer, Helicobacter Pylori infection or even stomach cancer. That is why, before any treatment, gastroscopy should be done to rule this conditions out.

In a meanwhile you should avoid fatty foods, spicy foods, alcohol, soft drinks, coffee. Do not eat before sleeping (last meal should be 2 hours before sleeping).

Hope this will help.
