  • Take antacids to help neutralize stomach acids.
  • Avoid spicy, acidic, tomato-based foods and high-fat foods such as chocolate and cream.
  • Avoid alcohol, colas, and coffee.
  • Stop smoking.
  • Lose excess weight.
  • Eat smaller amounts of food to avoid overfilling the stomach and do not eat late at night.
