    Acid reflux is the backward flow of stomach acid into the esophagus — the tube that connects the throat and stomach. Acid reflux is more specifically known as gastroesophageal reflux. During an episode of acid reflux, you may taste regurgitated food or sour liquid at the back of your mouth or feel a burning sensation in your chest (heartburn).

    Sometimes acid reflux progresses to GERD, a more severe form of reflux. The most common symptom of GERD is frequent heartburn. Other signs and symptoms may include regurgitation of food or sour liquid, difficulty swallowing, coughing, wheezing, and chest pain — especially while lying down at night.

      DGL may be an effective acid reflux treatment. The suggested dose of DGL is two tablets, chewed about 20 minutes before meals, three times a day, or it can be taken shortly before bedtime if you suffer mostly from nighttime acid reflux.

      I have read however, there isn’t enough scientific evidence to prove that it will definitely cure it, but it is worth a try.

      I have heard that both mastic gum and DGL can help acid reflux, but I can’t find anything about taking these remedies together.

      I would give all of these things a try and if they don’t work try a an over the counter antacid or milk.  Antacids and milk help me but I have to take them regularly to control my reflux because it is chronic.  In the end, you should see a doctor to see if there is an underlying cause for your reflux.
