Watch what you eat. Some foods relax the esophageal valve making heartburn more likely – these foods include: alcohol; beverages containing caffeine, carbonated beverages; citrus fruits and juices; tomatoes and tomato sauces; chocolate; spicy and fatty foods.

Avoid eating late at night or before going to bed. Lying down with a full stomach can cause stomach contents to press harder against the valve, increasing the chances of refluxed food. Make sure you don’t eat anything 3 hours before lying down or going to bed.
