Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, the ANSWER

Hello,

The answer is organic apple cider vinegar...


Also do you take any good probiotics in the form of organic kefir and organic yogurt and ferments like kombucha and others that you can make at home. They will help move out the bad bacteria, replacing it with good...

Organic apple cider vinegar, two tablespoons in half glass water prior to each meal to help with LOW STOMACH ACID, honestly I think the culprit of most disease. Some made need three tablespoons, not only does it CLEANSE THE BLOOD, it also alkalizes the body and helps with low stomach acid which most of us have. Low stomach acid will cause digestive problems and infection and disease...

Yes, I know they told you something else, but that just isn't the case...you keep coming back though!

Re: Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, the ANSWER

What if someone has been taking ppi's for years? Should they jump right into the apple cider or slowly take themselves off the ppi's before giving it a shot?

Re: Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, the ANSWER

It's OK to take the PPI and the vinegar at the same time. Stomach acid is a strong, caustic acid and vinegar is a weak acid. It doesn't replace stomach acid or treat low acid in the stomach, it seems to do something else.

You might as well give it a try. If the vinegar makes you hurt, try something else!

Re: Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, the ANSWER

The bottom line is that acid reflux/gerd is a result of LOW STOMACH ACID and the ORGANIC apple cider vinegar, two tablespoons in 1/2 glass of water WITH MEALS will help with digestion and will help to ALKALIZE the blood...increasing blood PH. Yes, over time this will stablize your stomach acid but will take about six months or so... I personally would take it with the drugs and slowly DECREASE the drugs...


Good luck!

Well, you can add raw honey, one tablespoon and more water if you want. That said, it's cheap and effective, provides lots of vitamins/minerals, and doesn't DAMAGE YOUR LIVER or cost you LOTS OF MONEY or keep you running back and forth to the doctor!!!

Some of these home remedies strike me as silly. For example, you emphasize "organic." How in the world does the body differentiate between apple cider vinegar made with organically grown applies versus apple cider vinegar made with non-organically grown apples? Anyway, I know some people swear by it. I've tried it a couple of times with no luck. But if it helps you, go for it!

Re: Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, the ANSWER

Look, skeeweeaka, I understand that you are trying to help. Apple cider vinegar is a safe, natural option that can be helpful for some people with reflux symptoms.

The thing is, it doesn't work for everyone. For example, people with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome over-produce acid. Others may have a weak LES, and will reflux regardless of the stomach pH.

When you have a chronic condition, you've tried everything, natural and otherwise, and come to the conclusion that you really do need a prescription medication to keep you alive or to provide any decent quality of life, it can be hurtful to have someone come along trying to convince you of the opposite. By all means, tell us what worked for you. Just keep in mind, some of us have already tried it and failed.
