Gastric reflux 8 month old baby

I have a two month old baby girl and I'm pretty sure that she has gastric reflux. She's fed breast milk fortified with formula. She wasn't gaining weight...this most likely due to VSD that will require surgery in the next month or two. I want to stay away from prescription drugs for the reflux. I want to try the Nat Phos 6x, but will like the treatment protocol (dose, frequency and duration of treatment) Thanks in advance for your time!

Most of the questions are answered in my original post. In addition: she becomes mainly restless, spits up sometimes, her stool is yellow, but sometimes is green. She gags when I'm trying to get the nipple in her mouth and burps excessively sometimes. She's refusing to take the nipple, but once she does she eats with moderate intensity.
