GERD, Kidney Stones, Ovarian Cysts, Pellet Stools

I'm a woman in my early twenties with GERD, ovarian cysts, annual kidney stones, lactose intolerance, and pellet stools.

I began having lactose intolerance when I was a kid. I have had pellet stool since I can remember. Everything else appeared when I wasin my senior year of college. I've been on Nexium for 2 years. I do not take it everyday bc I know it's bad for you. I feel fine if I just take them 2 times a week. Tums and Prilosec does not work. When I do try to stop taking the Nexium I feel awful. There's nausea and acid in my chest. The longest I've been without it was about a month. Coffee and coke are triggers and I do not drink those drinks anymore. Birthcontol is helping with my ovarian cysts. Lemonade and chamomile tea seem to help my stones. This may sound weird, but I noticed that when I take Nexium...I don't have kidney stone pain, but when I stop taking it...I have kidney stone pain.

Are these symptoms related in some strange and mysterious way?

How can I cure my reflux for good without meds? I'm starting nursing school this fall and what to take care of myself!
