Restoring the gut bacteria to a healthy mix can help improve GERD.
You will get even better results if you identify the underlying cause of the GERD. For example, it could be related to a hiatal hernia. Spicy food could be contributing to your reflux.
As you make the diet and lifestyle changes that will reduce the GERD, you also want to focus on restoring and improving the bacteria in your gut.
The goal should be to get rid of harmful bacteria, remove or reduce the amount of yeast in your gut, and address SIBO. Revamping your gut flora can occur at the same time as you’re working on eliminating GERD.

I suggest looking into probiotics, antifungals, antibacterials, antimicrobials, and other natural treatments rather than pharmaceutical drugs.
I’ve worked with many patients over the years who got rid of their reflux disease entirely by identifying some key triggers. These clients made changes to their diet, reduced the size of their meals, became more active, and made sure not to eat too close to bedtime. They also focused on getting more prebiotic foods into their diet.
Working on eating good foods that help to build good bacterial health is key. Likewise, eating foods that help curb bacterial dysbiosis is also important.
I recommend tackling GERD and your gut flora at the same time. You’ll get much more improvement in your reflux if you also work on the health of your bowels.
The proton pump inhibitors that many people take for GERD can interfere with healthy gut flora. That’s why so many people with reflux, also need to address their bacteria in their GI tract.
