Minimize risk factor: Avoid smoking, alcohol, caffeine. Decrease your stress. Also, foods that can increase acidity of your stomach can increase reflux and pain, these include spicy or acidic foods like salsa and orange juice among other foods. For more specific information for you discuss with your doctor.
