During my span of time trying to deal with GERD I have used several home remedies. I would recomend that if you suffer from GERD that you give them a try. Home remedies are in no way a cure for the disease, but they do help to alleviate some of the symptoms associated with GERD.
Here are the one's that I know of from research and use:
Red Delicious Apples
Pure raw honey
Aloe vera juice
Apple cider vinegar (organic - not processed)
Green Tea with Ginseng (non-caffeinated)
Fresh pineapple, mango or papaya
Chicory Root Tea
Please add to the list if you know of others, and share your experience with them.

Reason: adding to
I've had decent success eating beets (maybe 5-6 slices), I think that's because (sometimes) my reflux is bile related. As such, avoiding the gallbladder trigger foods has been helpful for me as well (bad fats, caffeine, eggs, etc).
DGL I have to use it (as directed) before eating. For me, it doesn't do much to make the heartburn / pain go away but works well as a preventative.
