It's very portant if you have reflux for that long that you have a scope put down to see if there is anything in your oesophagus that might need immediate attention once that is ruled out there are lots of different PPI medications to reduce acid production

I have suffered from acid reflux for ten years after having been diagnosed with Achaalasia and having an operation. I have been on various medications to protect my stomach and help with the acid reflux but nothing really helped. For the last 4 months I have been making ginger tea sweetened with honey (I found this information when looking up foods to help and avoid if you suffer from reflux ) I cannot tell you the difference it has made and I would recommend it to anyone suffering from reflux or any indigestion problems also helps I B S .

Fresh root ginger , if you look on Y tube just put in how to make ginger tea you will find recipes. I do not peel the ginger before boiling just give it a good wash before slicing and boiling. I drink a small cup 2 to 3 times a day. Also helps with nausea good luck, let me know how you get on.
