About GE reflux...: Gastroesophageal reflux disease is when the stomach contents comes back up into the esophagus too often, or in too large of an amount, with or without feeling symptoms such as heartburn. A person with GERD should avoid vinegar and other acidic foods or liquids like juice or soda. Her doctor can examine and treat with lifestyle improvements, plus acid blockers and antacids to decrease acidity.
