How do I stop feedback from distortion on acoustic guitar?

Alright, before I get started the reason I am even attempting to use a distortion pedal with an acoustic guitar is because I have a primarily acoustic song that ends in distortion. I am aware of options such as an acoustic emulator for an electric guitar but i am not interested.

So when using a distortion pedal with the acoustic obviously feedback occurs. Basically my question is if anybody has attempted what I am doing and what noise reduction/ gate pedal they have used to stop the problem. I read about I.S.P decimators but i'm not sure.

ANSWER

There is a excellent discussion of this problem at:

There are tons of different ideas for you to try. I am sure you will find a solution.
