Have beverages in between your meals instead of in the midst of them. It's more likely that you are thirsty rather than hungry, and this will settle your hunger pangs. When you drink throughout the day, your stomach won't get as upset when you do eat and acid won't come back into the esophagus.
Stress serves to exacerbate acid reflux. Stress causes the production of excess acid in the stomach, which can lead to acid reflux. Relax after you eat. Effective relaxation techniques include reading, watching television, listening to soothing music or meditating quietly.
While vinegar tastes great on salads or french fries, anyone with acid reflux should avoid eating it. Vinegar, along with citrus fruit and tomatoes, is high in acid, and the more acid you eat, the more acid will return up your esophagus and cause you pain and discomfort after meals.
