I have no idea why this works for me, but when I feel the reflux beginning I take a mucinex. I keep generic, no colors added guafenesin from the dollar store(30 pills for $1) on hand, and it has always helped. I don't even know how I figured out this was helping, but it does. I'm think maybe a food allergy triggers excess mucus and stops the flow of the intestines downward, therefore causing the backup of acid from my stomach into the esophagus. Takes about 15 minutes for relief to be felt, but lasts a long time.
