Sommelier and Acid reflux / GERD

Hello. 6 years ago i was diagnosed with acid reflux disease or GERD. No need to say that for sommelier this sounds like death penalty, especially when the official medicine says that alcohol is absolutely forbidden till the end of life. Thoigh there are some sources and researches that say that the situation is not so dramatic. Did you face that kind of helath problem or may be other digestive diseases, how do you live and work with that? Thanks
