  • Just make sure that you aren't laying down right after eating. Also you can eat raw potato. I know gross but it helps.

  • whole milk helps but the best is sodium bicarbonate or tums. here is a simple nasty tasting recipe but it works just pinch your nose.
    1 8 oz glass of cold h2o
    2 tablespoons baking soda
    mix well and chug you can add it to juice like apple juice in stead of water or add a lil sugar
