Does Apple Cider Vinegar Help?
Apple Cider Vinegar is a natural remedy you can use for acid reflux instead of antacids. One of my clients was taking prescribed ant acids for his acid reflux for years. At one of his regular doctor’s check-ups it was found that he was no longer absorbing vitamin B12. This was due to the medication he was taking over many years. Luckily he takes B12 shots monthly and uses Apple Cider Vinegar along with a healthy diet.
Stress and Anxiety a factor also for acid reflux. As mentioned in previous posts stress and anxiety are causes of most of our physical symptoms. Acid Reflux being one of the.
Apple Cider Vinegar is one of the remedies I have been taking every day. One of the reasons is it is a Natural anti biotic it has many benefits for your body.
I first came across Apple Cider Vinegar about 10 years ago when I was doing a detox. For 24 hours I drank Apple Cider Vinegar which is full of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and potassium in raw form. I mixed it with Cayenne and Lemon and it was very good for the purpose I was trying to achieve at the time.
I then found out and realized it is also great as a natural anti biotic and 1 teaspoon per day in warm water is beneficial. What I also discovered as I got older – I started to get indigestion which was pretty painful in my chest. I read that Apple Cider Vinegar was a remedy that would help. So I took 2 teaspoons in warm water and within 15 minutes the pain was gone. It is one of the products I recommend for my clients with acid reflux.
