Oatmeal, ginger, peppermint and aloe vera are foods known to help calm the stomach and ease acid reflux. Foods such as melon, vinegar-based salad dressing and fennel, which have slightly acidic pH levels, may reduce reflux by speeding up digestion, so that food and acid sits in the stomach for less time. To help reduce acid reflux, avoid spicy and fatty foods.
