It is not necessarily the acid, but the pepsin that comes up, due to a weak LES.
The pepsin digests your throat and other tissues that get exposed.
Pepsin is irreversibly deactivated at Ph around 8.

Melatonin can strengthen the LES, also stomach breathing as opposed to chest breathing.
Pepto and gaviscon can also deactivate pepsin.
