One way is: to not eat late in the evening before going to bed at least 3-4 hours. Never overeat. Cigarette smoking can also cause acid reflux. Avoid stressors in your environment. Other methods are with medications- antiacids such as tums, (calcium carbonate) H2 blockers such as ranitidine, proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole. Lastly avoid overingestionof NSAIDS such as Ibuprofen which I see you are taking.
