For acid reflux you generally want to prevent it from happening. It's usually caused by an imbalance in stomach acid where it travels up the esophagus. You should avoid these things 30 minutes before a meal and 1 hour after a meal.
alcohol
coffee – even decaf
chocolate
spicy foods
fatty foods; deep-fried – margarine
You can also take a little bit a mint to help ease the esophageal pain.

Nicely put up Patrick. But as far as I know, using mint is a bit dicey because spearmint irritates the lining of the esophagus and leads to heartburn. Isn’t that true?

Acid reflux or commonly referred as heart burn is a very close symptom of GERD. I am not sure about what can actually trigger heart burn and throat irritation in you but I can say for sure that you shouldn’t consume caffeinated drinks, alcohol, and everything spicy. See a doctor if the irritation is taking a turn to the worse stage.
