Changes in diet may help to relieve symptoms, especially for mild heartburn or GERD. While a GERD diet may help with less serious conditions, diet alone is usually not enough for more serious problems (see GERD Diet). For more serious conditions, dietary changes should be used in conjunction with other treatments.

If your condition is very serious or if medications are not helping, surgery may be another option.
