Re: Dr.

In general, the strategies used to help with the acid reflux symptoms are pretty much the same regardless of the symptoms. You need to try to avoid things which relax your lower esophageal sphincter. You need to avoid foods that trigger your acid to come up. Weight loss is recommended for many people since that helps with the 'pressure' put on the stomach. Avoiding things that also put pressure on the stomach such as bending exercises and tight waistbands are also recommended. Sleeping on an incline is recommended to allow gravity to help you some. (Don't prop on pillows as that can 'bend' your esophagus. The last thing is to find things to help you 'heal' from damage that the acid reflux does.

It really is all about finding strategies to help control your symptoms. I really don't think there are complete 'remedies' out there. I do think in many cases, it is possible to do things to keep those symptoms under control though.
