No; managed.: I don't know about "curing" reflux. You already know you have the tendency to make it - now, it is a matter of managing that tendency. Avoid chocolate, peppermint, caffeine, tobacco, alcohol, carbonated beverages, and other trigger foods you have identified. Take pepcid, zantac, (ranitidine) prilosec, or prevacid.

Medications are best: There is a surgery, but it is only for those who have failed medical therapy. Need to use mechanical and preventive precautions seriously. Then add h2 blockers or proton pump inhibitors.
