yeah  My doctor told me that my yogurt cure worked, because the beneficial bacteria in the yogurt counteracted the harmful Helio-bacter bacteria in my stomach causing GERD. An article I found in a medical journal:
 
There are several reasons for eradicating Helicobacter pylori in patients with chronic gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Perhaps the most compelling is the evidence that chronic acid suppression therapy can lead to the development of atrophic gastritis, a premalignant condition, in patients with H pylori infection. Epidemiological data that suggest that H pylori is less prevalent in GERD patients than in control subjects may be susceptible to publication bias, and confounding social and environmental factors may also be involved. Although it has been thought that eradication of the organism might lead to increased esophageal acid exposure, this has not been demonstrated in practice. Studies that appeared to show that GERD could be provoked by antimicrobial therapy of duodenal ulcers also have methodological weaknesses. Underlying GERD symptoms might be unmasked after withdrawal of acid-suppression therapy, for reasons that are unrelated to H pylori. In fact, eradication of the organism has been shown to decrease heartburn in patients with peptic ulcer disease. When H pylori is successfully eradicated in patients with GERD, relapse rates are not increased, and the disease-free interval seems to be prolonged. Eradication of the organism is a wise policy in patients who face long term acid-suppression therapy for GERD.
It is well known that yogurt (or other probiotics) are a cure for harmful bacteria such as candida (yeast infections) and helio-bacter (the main culprit in GERD and ulcers) yeah

Any kind of yogurt will do. Just get it at a natural foods store, not grocery store. It must have live bacteria.

A couple points about yogurt. First of all, they all have live bacteria. The real culprit is the sugar in most yogurts. You need unsweetened yogurt. Add Splenda or other non sugar sweetener if you like and most of all limit your overall carb levels. You can also add a couple of strawberries or blue berries as they are low carb fruits.

Good luck,
Dr. Norm

The natural foods store yogurts are sweetened this way (fruit) or with maple syrup.
