Acid Reflux: How do you get relief?

I don't know that I'd say I suffer from Acid Reflux, but do have occasional symptoms. Sometimes it's in response to what I eat (or not eating), other times it's a response to "general" health. The importance of the digestive tract flora is becoming more well know. My GI tract is compromised because of an appendicitis.

I also have experience with my father's many years of anti-acids not helping and several alternatives (under doctors guidance). There may be some family history, inheritance or predisposition. My personal attitude tend toward Hippocrates: "Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.” even though modern medicine is sooo much better then 5th century B.C medicine.

One aspect of health that is often overlooked is the emotional or "soft side" of a person's health. How's are you dealing with pressure? What's your attitude or disposition to life. As Zig Ziglar says: "You don't get ulcers from what you eat, you get them from what's eating you."

Short answer is in recognizing the cause and not just treating the symptom.
