We all know that apple cider vinegar (ACV) has a lot of benefits for health and beauty. So I stopped taking the PPIs a week ago and today decided to try some Organic apple cider vinegar, unpasteurized, following the advice found on the internet. I mix it in warm water and some honey. I read about ACV and how it acts as natural HCL. it’s been a week now since I started it, taking a cup of warm water with half teaspoon of ACV with each meal and after a very long time am happy to see that I do not get heart burn or acidity issues. If you ask me, we’ve suffered long enough. Acid reflux is painful, and if left untreated it can have serious detrimental effects on your day-to-day activities, not to mention your social life. That’s why it’s important to fight it as soon as possible. And as you can see, it’s quite easy and cheap to do so.
It’s generally accepted as safe to consume a small amount of apple cider vinegar. It should be diluted with water. This should relieve any burning sensation caused by the acid in the vinegar. I feel good sometimes but acid reflux always triggers at night and when I wake up in the morning I’m having shortness of breath. Drinking apple cider vinegar a fantastic read can help cure acid reflux and indigestion, according to natural health expert and author of “Alkalinize or Die,” Thomas Baroody. Most reflux is caused by having too little acid in the stomach, not too much. Baroody’s recommendation is to drink 1 cup of water with 1 tbsp. vinegar mixed in before meals to keep your indigestion symptoms at bay.
The results showed that taking organic apple cider vinegar 15 minutes after a meal helped reduce heartburn symptoms for some of the test participants but not for all of them. White distilled vinegar that is made from grain and diluted with water contains 5% acidity, which helps to break down the food and aids in better digestion, offering relief from acid reflux. Started taking ACV every morning first thing and the reflux went away. I decided to take a PPI over the counter Prilosec for 2 weeks, avoided eating at least 2 hours before bedtime, and began a regimen of 2 teaspoons of Bragg apple cider vinegar in a glass of water once a day in the morning before breakfast.
Second, drinking straight apple cider vinegar can burn your esophagus. Hey, remember that burning sensation you were experiencing? The one you’re trying to fix? Well, if that burn is caused by the acid coming into direct contact with the lining of your esophagus, I think it makes sense that adding to that problem by introducing another highly acidic solution into the mix is not going to win you any Nobel Prizes for science any time soon. Drinking apple cider vinegar supplies the LES valve with the acidity it needs to function properly.
I ordered four copies of the Bragg “Apple Cider Vinegar” book so I could share them with friends. Over the years, I have had at least six other copies, but lost track of them as I passed them to others. The information is invaluable, inexpensive, totally natural, and most importantly, helpful in maintaining good health. I am now 72, very healthy and very active. My mother was a proponent of apple cider vinegar and honey and took it daily. I have pain and a heavy feeling in my stomach all the time and a sour taste in my mouth.
