I have acid reflux, but only citrus fruits cause it to act up. I don't avoid them though (I love tangerines and I drink lemon water when I'm retaining water). I use generic Cimetidine (Tagamet) and it works perfectly. I buy mine in the 'dollar' section at my grocery store, but I wouldn't know if they are available in Canada. Do you have dollar stores up there?
Also, when you begin to lose weight, the reflux improves. I went from having it constantly to maybe a couple times a week.
I wouldn't recommend cutting out fruits and veggies, because I can't see any dieter being successful without them. I think berries are lower acid and so are the melons. Apples and of course citrus have high acid contents. I don't know about the vegetables. They never gave me a problem.
I can't offer any advice about the hiatal hernia. I don't have that problem.

My before and current pictures! I have an impersonal trainer. We meet at the gym, we don't talk, he works out alone, and I go home
