In brief: Dietary habits

For occasional heartburn, remember to avoid caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco.
Avoid large, rich, acidic, or spicy meals, and do not lie down after eating for several hours. For heartburn more than a couple times a week, try over the counter Prilosec at a dose of 20mg 1/2 hour before breakfast each morning. 3 inch blocks to raise the head of the bed can stop night time symptoms.
