We all know that apple cider vinegar (ACV) has a lot of benefits for health and beauty. You are supposed to take the Apple Cider Vinegar with 8 oz glass of water. That should work better for you. For over ten months now, I have been taking 2 teaspoons of Bragg apple cider vinegar in a glass of water before meals and my gastric reflux has disappeared. sites I know that over time our bodies become more acidic. So it seems counter-intuitive to ingest vinegar. But it worked! I no longer suffered an episode of the burning pain and lump in the throat sensation. True, I have only just started this, but I honestly cannot recall the last time I went a whole week without getting acid reflux.
So I made a lot of research and luckily found this encouraging site. Now this is my first time to drink heinz ACV and honey with hot water. It worked after a few days and it is still working now. I enjoy drinking beer, coffee and red wine which at times can cause some minor discomfort if I over indulge. However, overall the ACV has been wonderful and as a side effect it appears to have lowered my blood pressure by 10 points. So definitely the ACV has helped me like a lot of people here, but other aspects of one’s lifestyle need to be looked into as well, as a reduction in symptoms (however welcome) is not the same as a complete cure, and there are lots of different factors that can affect conditions like these.
Very recently I had a Massive acid reflux attack that had me up throughout the night and continued on the next day. It took me a couple days (where I was in constant reflux and lost weight because of it) but I grabbed tums from the pharmacy and while they worked, they only lasted for about an hour and a half at a time and my acid came back with a vengence afterward. I started taking two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar with warm water and honey in the morning and evening which helped tremendously, however it seems to have become less effective, and I’m finding that I have to take more and more to get any relief.
I had surgery to remove my gall bladder in March. I had horrible issues with it and they found a very diseased bladder during surgery which never was evident through all the months of tests. The surgeon told be to continue to take something over the counter for several months like Omeprazole to heal my stomach and it really helped. He told me to take it twice a day and then slowly wean to one a day then none. One underlying theory here is that the acetic acid in vinegar lowers stomach acidity (increases its pH) since acetic acid is a weaker acid than hydrochloric acid. It is also believed that vinegar (acetic acid along with its acetate salt) may help buffer and maintain stomach acid at a pH level of about 3.0. In this milder acidic environment, the stomach can still efficiently digest food but it causes less problems with the esophagus and thus less heartburn.
