The usual answer I have seen is that GERD is not curable. However, there are a multitude of treatment plans that can manage your GERD and allow you to eat and sleep without pain. There are several lifestyle changes you can make that may have a positive impact on your GERD, but this stage of heartburn is usually too advanced for lifestyle changes alone. However, losing weight and eating a healthy diet will go far toward improving overall health. You should discuss a diet and exercise plan with your health practitioner.
A last option for GERD patients is surgery if the esophagus is severely damaged. This surgery reportedly repairs the valve between the stomach and esophagus, preventing acid reflux, and allowing the esophagus to heal.
We have some great resources in our thread at the top of the page and I will post the link to the resources here:
I hope you find some good info in the resources.
