acidic reflux causing throat and cough problem

I have been suffering from acidic reflux in my stomach.
I am taking capule with the combination of rabeprezol and levosulfide.
But these days what is troubling me most is that i am getting soar throat and dry cough and
Tonsilitis. Doctor says that unless i treat acidic problem i cannot get rid of throat
Problem. And once i get the dry cough it remains for a long period inspite of taking medication.
Plz provide me some solition to my problem.

Here are few tips:

  • If you are overweight, lose weight.
  • Wear comfortable clothes. Clothes that fit tightly around your waist put pressure on your abdomen and the lower esophageal sphincter.
  • Avoid foods that you know will trigger your heartburn. Common triggers such as fatty or fried foods, tomato sauce, alcohol, chocolate, mint, garlic, onion, and caffeine may make heartburn worse.
  • Wait at least 3 hours after eating before lying down or going to bed.
  • If you smoke, quit. Smoking decreases the lower esophageal sphincter’s ability to function properly.
  • Drink at least 8 glasses of glasses of water each day to allow your body to expel acid naturally.
  • Take aloe vera juice three times a day between meals. It helps soothe an irritated esophagus.
