    For me, when I had GERD, the biggest change was from weight loss. I didn't need to hit my target weight, but I had to get below a certain number, and like magic, the GERD just stopped. Regain it, and guess what's back.

    So if I were you, that's where I'd concentrate my efforts. Forget home remedies like vinegar and aloe vera. Get your weight down and start keeping a food journal showing what and how much you ate at about what time on the left side, and on the right any GERD or other digestive/swallowing/acid issues. Sometimes that shows a clear link between a particular food and an episode.

    I have had GERD for years and take Nexium every day. I avoid spicy food and citrus fruits. ACV is rotten apples, NEVER take it with this condition.

    Keep a food diary so you can avoid the triggers.
