Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. GERD that sever not responding to medicine may be not adequately treated with diet lifestyle and supportive remedies as meds only play 20 % of role,r est 80 % is diet lifestyle adjustments. If the issue is still there despite all measures, consider surgery like fundoplication. Visit our GERD health center for further guidance.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
