    There is a cure for heartburn!!

    To all fellow heartburn, acid reflux sufferers.
    There has been abit of talk about the benefits of drinking apple cider vinegar. Warenpoint and I are currently drinking the vinegar, with amazing results!
    About 2 years ago I had to have the "scope" up my nose and down my throat, my tongue had a burn like ulcer, my throat , and the lining down to my stomach had been severly burnt by acid,& heartburn.I was then sent to a specialist who informed me that due to the severity I would have to take tablets forever and I also had a 99% chance of it causing stomach cancer.! As my friend, age 40 had just passed away with stomach cancer , and he had been having acid reflux for about 5 years previously to his cancer being diagnosed.... I was even more concerned.
    Also the bad acid gets into your joints so not helping arthritis in hip and knee.
    I started on the tablets, they didnt do anything,I was also eating like lollies, those horrible chalk -like quickies.It didnt matter what I ate , water even gave me heart burn,
    I had pain even if I didnt eat !!!
    So I posted on the alternative boards, to get some back up on drinking apple cider vinegar.My Nana drank it for as long as I can remember,There was a very positive post there, that explained why it is good for you, I bought a bottle at the local shop, I keep it in the fridge and take a large gulp first thing in the morning and I have never had heartburn again.I can eat and drink anything.
    I guess I would just like to urge people to give it a go.
    The taste is not that unpleasant, but if you find you cant drink it straight, you can mix it with warm water and honey.There are no exact measurements as I say I just take one good large swallow.
    I'm not saying this will work for all, but it cant hurt to try it for a couple of weeks or so. Its also good for arthritis sufferers.
    Warrenpoint is kindly going to be our guinea pig and give us updates on his progress.
    Hope that you at least try it
    Best wishes
    Sue

    Funny because I was about to use Apple Cider Vinegar for my skin acne problem. I got the idea from another board. It appears that ACV is a good remedy for alot of things. I will buy some today.

    Re: There is a cure for heartburn!!

    Yes, I just posted on another Gerd site. Yes, I believe RAW apple cider vinegar is curing my heartburn. I bought it approximately two and half weeks ago and I am doing great. I am eating just about everything and I have been taking 1 tsp. in 4oz water just before eating and when I forget, just after eating. It has worked great and I am so relieved. I tried the regular ACV and it did nothing but burn me. Only one time can I say I had a little heartburn and that was two nights ago when I ate a few french fries from my daughters take out at a large fast food place. I won't mention the name but I am sure you all know it! I had not taken the vinegar before or after and I had some acid reflux. I realised I hadn't so took it and was fine.
    I am a female 58 yrs young and I recommend this to anyone who has GERD.

    Hi guys

    I was just wondering, are you still taking PPIs or did you stop taking them after you took ACV? Please let me know. Thanks.

    Re: There is a cure for heartburn!!

    You can take both, but I didnt need any antacids, it worked within the week, I have been off Losec for about 2 years, I do think the best way to take it is first thing in the morning as it needs to get into the lining, before the food.
    I am ordering a book,as there are a multitude of uses for it.

    What is the difference between RAW apple cider vinegar and apple cider vinegar? Are you buying organic?

    Thanks!

    Re: There is a cure for heartburn!!

    I have given up all medicines regarding gerd. I was taking Nexium, Pirolsec and Pepcid at different times with no success. So I decided to try this RAW apple cider vinegar and it works! (at least for me it does) Have not taken any in two days and I seem to be fine, but if it does flare up I will take it immediately. Also I don't think it is a bad thing to take on a daily basis anyway. Good luck if you try it but I can't stress enough you must find the Raw Apple cider vinegar not the ACV you find in grocery stores.

    The RAW apple cider vinegar is organic and it looks cloudy in the bottle and contains no preservatives. I keep in the fridge. I purchased the BRAGG brand and found it at GNC.

    The regular ACV is diluted with water.

    Re: There is a cure for heartburn!!

    So glad you can use the grocery store kind. I tried it and it burnt going down. I have taken ACV only a couple of times this past few days and I can't believe the relief I have had. I have constantly complained about GERD since May 05 and now I hope I have found the answer. Thanks to these posts. Today I went to have my eyes checked as I had lasik surgery Friday last. Doing fine so far, but my husband, which is unusal for him had heartburn today on the way back, so when we got home I immediately gave me 4oz. water and a teaspoon of ACV. Will see how he does with it. Talk to you all later.

    Re: There is a cure for heartburn!!

    Today, 15th Nov. My husband has not complained about his heartburn so I need to ask him how it worked. Forgot to!!!! I think it does the job. Haven't had any today but will take some ACV tonight before going to bed. Had some chocolate so that might start it up so will take some as a precaution. Talk to you later.

    Re: There is a cure for heartburn!!

    Hi warrenpoint
    You will soon notice that it will go away all together , the acid etc, I forgot to buy a bottle over the weekend and I had the old feelings back after 2-3 days, so I just know it definetly works for me.
    I brought another brand as well, this has added applejuice and honey, brewed naturally, taste abit um smoother. I thought I may as well have an array of flavours!!
    I have ordered a book on cider vinegar...it has hundreds of uses, apparently very good for cleaning the chrome on your car! I'm not going to analyze that at all .! haha.
    Do keep taking it daily ! Dont wait for the heartburn,it has other wonderful healing attributes.
    Keep up the healing..
    Sue

    Re: There is a cure for heartburn!!

    I started on the ACV yesterday and had no problems at all. Had another dose this morning. Then today I started having some gerd flare ups and so I took another dose of the ACV. Seemed to help for an hour or so then it was back. I broke down and took some prilosec a few minutes ago. The thought of a full blown attack of gerd at night is scary. I've gone through that before and one night seriously thought I was going to die.

    Re: There is a cure for heartburn!!

    Hi Sissypop, welcome to the vinegar club!
    Just keep at it daily, and take what ever else is needed, You have got to remember that its not a miracle drug/cure ( are there any ?)
    Its just the best that I have found.
    yah know what you mean about gerd being scary, I used to think this was it,heart attack on its way....worse I would light a cigarette, thought it maybe my last ! I can be very bad at times.!!

    Re: There is a cure for heartburn!!

    You know it was the gerd that got me to quit cigs. When I was having those awful attacks the cigarettes just made it worse. I cut down to 3 or 4 a day then about 2 months ago smoked my last one.

    The worst gerd attack I ever had was one night I woke up gasping for breath. I was choking on the horrible burning junk in my throat. I couldn't breathe. I jumped out of bed and suddenly was able to catch my breath. But I nearly choked/smothered. It was very scary.
