Dear Gale: Try 1/2 teaspoon of sodium ascorbate and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. Taken twice a day. Acid reflux can be both bicarbonate issue and a bug issue (bacteria, fungus). So for your condition, take the zinc acetate 25 mg/day and licorice extract, both taken on for one week and off for another week. Most bugs tend to exist with the high heavy metals, so consider adding some fresh chinese parsley (coriander) into your diet.

Removing heavy metals removes the food source of the bugs too. Certain parts of the U.S. water is fluoridated, so this tends to worsen the acid reflux (my observations), and taking 1/8 teaspoon in one glass of water of food grade borax temporarily not exceeding 2-3 days per week alternate weeks, can reduce this problem too. At least it removes the body's immune suppression and once restore, the acid reflux might go away since the cause of acid reflux as mentioned before can be a body's pH buffer or a bacterial/fungus problem.
