That depends upon the cause. If you have a hiatal hernia causing reflux, then anything that decreases intra-abdominal pressure can improve the reflux.

"Brash" is sometimes used to describe this phenomenon as well. If this fluid exits forefully through the mouth, it's referred to as emesis (commonly known as vomiting).
