Many: 1- lifestyle changes - dietary habits, elevating head of bed, etc. 2- anti-acid medications lower acid content and improve some symptoms 3- endoscopic treatment of the valve between the esophagus and stomach 4- surgical treatment i the valve. Start at 1, then progress through the options as needed.
