Try baking soda : This is an inexpensive remedy to neutralize acid. Also, avoid foods an drinks that make it worse, and avoid eating too close to bedtime. If i persists, an you can't afford lifelong medication, consider a stretta procedure or even a nissen fundoplication (surgery). These cost more up front, but less in the long run.
