I have GERD (gastro reflux) and also having hot flashes ( I am a male) are there any herbs I could take to make me feel better. thanks

Both gastro reflux and hot flashes are stress symptoms. The gastro reflux is often caused by the stress response affecting the digestive system and causing irritation, while the hot flashes are from blood sugar swings caused by the stress hormones affecting the blood sugar regulation. To treat these symptoms you must address the affects of stress on your body.
