Elevation of the bed: With LPR you will benefit by raising head of bed so acid doesn't come up to throat. Check diet diary to see if a food sensitivity / allergy is present. Are you snoring? Snoring adds to reflux significantly. Check out exercises for snoring at www.grossaninstitute.com Take probiotic. My patients add papain / bromelain to digestion (no scientific proof of this but in theory it reduces inflammation
