Respected Sir, hi I evaluated your query thoroughly.
Causes of acid reflux include - incompetency of gastroesophageal junction - inadequate sleep - excess stress - much consumption of oily / spicy / nonveg stuffs - excess alcohol beverages intake - prolonged fasting states - excess smoking - certain disorders of stomach , liver & oesophagus - certain neurological conditions : any factor leading to imbalance of acid neutralising capacity of stomach as well as affecting GE sphincter.
You can follow certain steps as :
* Apply vaseline or lip balm over lip with avoiding exposure of lips to excess
heat and excess cold.
* Avoid excess oily / spicy / nonveg stuffs.
* Avoid smoking / tobacco / alcohol / any other abuse substances if taking.
* Avoid stress / anger.
* Avoid prolonged fasting states / overeating.
* Manage your meals and dinner times properly.
* Have adequate sleep of 8 hours.
* Regular Deep breathing exercises, some belly exercises at home with
YOGA helps a lot on long term basis.
