Diet is key: Be sure to avoid alcohol and caffeine as well as tobacco. Avoid all irritating foods like spicy or greasy items, and raw onion or garlic. Temporarily avoid acidic foods containing tomatoes and citrus foods. Also, I would avoid raw veggies and cold drinks/foods for the time being. Make sure you chew your food well. Small regular meals help, too.
