There are three common remedies that is helpful, I can try any but it depends on which ones people prefer:

1. 2 Tablespoon of lemon juice plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day.
2. 2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water, taken twice a day.
3. 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon of potassium citrate in 1/2 glass of water taken two times a day. This remedy was for those who worry about sodium retention. In actuality sodium retention is caused by excess chlorine, and the body attempts to alkalized by storing more alkaline sodium. The remedy for reduction is to add more baking soda, to remove the sodium chloride from the system, by displacement.
4. 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of after taken twice a day.

Some people can take three times a day in any of the above. There are other remedies for acid reflux, but those are the simplest ones.
