I have problems sleeping through the night because GERD wakes me up every 1-3 hours. I'm trying to stay away from prescriptions because I am so sensitive to many of them. I have found that baking soda in water helps (1/2 teaspoon baking soda to 2 cups of water) but still I wake up 2-3 times each night with Gerd issues. Any Suggestions?
During the day hours, I'm find that drinking a Lemonade Mixture (Lemonade with sugar, not other sweeteners plus water (1/3 Lemonade to 2/3 water) seems to keep my stomach under control.
Thank you so much!

Have you tried raising the head of your bed? Extra pillows don't work ... You actually have to put the head of the bed up on bricks or 2x4's.

Most folks with GERD or LPR can't tolerate lemon in any form...perhaps some night time problems are caused by your drink.
