I am having problems with heartburn, how can I make it stop?

My name is (…) 43 years old. Male. Living in (…) I am slightly obese and had a H. pylori Infection 4 years back with a new Streptococcus infection 30 days ago. Treated by antibiotics. My blood work is pretty good except for the blood work I have had done recently which shows that my cholesterol is at 5.6 and bilirubin levels up. My specialist doctor says I may be susceptible to Gilbert’s syndrome. I am a very very big eater and usually have minor constipation and slight problems digesting with heartburn and bloating issues. What can I do to make this stop? Are these problems interrelated?
