'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

Not really. I just read that a doctor suggests to not use it. That it’s not a good idea. But a lot of people say it does help. For me it eventually felt worse.

Geneveve Balondo
For me yes, 1 tsp apple cider vinegar & 1 tsp honey in 1 glass of water.

Gina Thery
I know it may sound gross and may not work for everyone but when my stomach gets upset to where GERD is mimicking a heart attack and chest pain.... I will drink pickle juice.

Dave Wakefield
ACV gets mentioned a lot in this group and as a mixed response. Some it helps, some it doesn't, some it makes ill. It depends if you are suffering from low or high acid. If I take ACV it makes me ill. Tightens my estophegas. Brings on cold like symptoms and takes several days to feel normal again.

Rick Lazell
I had some in my omelette this morning, made it a weird fluffy wet like texture lol only put a splash in it.

JoJo Miller
Yes being it is acidic. I am not sure how it will affect me.

Jayne Taylor
I think it's meant to be when you have acid reflux your acidity levels aren't level so having the Apple cider vinegar it's meant to balance it out..

JoJo Miller
Ty I am going to try for a week.

Jayne Taylor
I've got the tablets try them before the liquid there not as harsh..I have 1 or 2 with dinner and tea.

Gigi Robertson
It’s not good for me as I’m following a low acid diet which seems to be helping a lot.

Karen Andrews
It may sound strange but reflux is actually caused from too little acid. Like anything though it'll work for some, not for others. Personally I think if it doesn't work people aren't doing it consistently. 1 tbsp in water with honey is the only way I can do it. Tastes like apple juice to me that way. I know people that just take it straight but I couldn't do it that way!

Dave Wakefield
Reflux is caused by too little acid in some people, not all. For them ACV should help. If you suffer from high acid it will make you worse. It's nothing down to consistency. It's down to what actually causes your reflux issues. You take ACV with high acid and you will have problems.

Karen Andrews
I've been given incorrect information. Thanks for clearing that up!

Jayne Taylor
Everyone's different are they we try these things and if they don't work we just don't try them again. .

Charles Gomez
I pour a shot into a glass of room temp water. Helps. I also take one of these each morning and noticed a GREAT improvement!
herbal for gerd

Jayne Taylor
I keep seeing this advertised on telly..so it works. .what does the cinnamon do

Charles Gomez
Ginger helps stomach, acid reflux and bad breath. Unfortunately it causes me to burp ginger which i am not fond of. Cinnamon helps by providing a pleasent burp. I am also told it helps with sugar control and arthritis.

Jayne Taylor
Ah right so what do you take one of each..I have the Apple cider vinegar tablets and they do sort of work but my burps don't come out it's always stuck

Charles Gomez
One ginger one cinnamon. Shot of vinegar with water before bed.

Jayne Taylor
It'll be health shop or Holland and Barrett here..I'll have a look thank you.

Julie Pursel
Ginger root is great. I thought cinnamon would make reflux worse.

Jayne Taylor
That's the liquid Anna tablets you can't taste as much and i just swallow then..capsules taste better than the solid tablets.

Kristin
Jenkins Its helped greatly. You get used to the taste after awhile if you do it regularly.

Tom Owen
If you have had an endo and your valve is gone like mine or leaks bad dont do it you will taste vinegar all day long.

Maria Mercieri
Apple Cider Vinegar may introduce more acid into your digestive tract but if you have low stomach acid it can be beneficial. I tried it and it was awful so I clearly don’t need it.

Gary Kinsley
It's an Acid. Why add more acid to the acid you already have?

Ibrar Hussain
JoJo Miller it helped me,I took it empty stomach every morning two table spoons with glass of hot water ,u can add honey if u don’t like the taste ,I took it with a straw as it’s very acidic for my teeth and overall it helped a lot 🙏

Dottie
I actually have used it a few drops to a cup of water and i felt better, just sip it slow

Elizabeth Rudd Greene
Use braggs organic, and take for a few days and see if it helps you.

Debbie Adams
Try. Putting honey in it.. I drink charga tea. Work's good. I take no meds.

Julie Pursel
What’s charga tea?

Debbie Adams
Julie Pursel charga tea is a growth on a yellow birch tree. You can buy it at health. Food store. The allkalline in the tea heals esophagus . It took a few. weeks before I didnt need meds. I drink a cup after I eat anything.

Julie Pursel
Debbie Adams ok thanks for the info!!!! I’ll look next time I go.

Denise Cooley
Bought mine on Amazon. Gaviscon Advance has more sodium alginate then the Gasviscon Extra Strength that is sold in US stores. Waiting for it to be delivered to try with the probiotics. Tried Protonix with absolutly no relief.

Debbie Adams
I use organic apple cider vinegar, by Bragg. It works for me but others say not for them. I use 2ysp vinegar in 4 oz water. You can also add honey. Let me know how it works.

Bobby McNally
Thank you, I will try it.

Debbie Adams
Bobby McNally if you Google Bragg organic apple cider vinegar it can tell you more. Good luck feel better. Happy Easter.

Aaron Hooton
It really depends on the kind of acid reflux you have. Apple cider vinegar stimulates acid production so be careful using it as a way to come off nexium. There are so many variables where acid reflux is concerned which is why something that helps one person will hinder another.

Aaron Hooton
The one thing I’ve found that seems to help everyone is natural alkaline water. I’m not normally very active in Facebook groups but I’ve been shouting about this stuff for a week now after I went through the worst time I’ve ever had with acid reflux and was really saved by alkaline water.

Bobby McNally
Aaron Hooton how do I get that? Lol might be a dumb question.

Aaron Hooton
Bobby McNally No, not dumb at all. I walked past it in the supermarket for years without even knowing it existed. I’m in Australia and our major supermarkets stock it.

Bobby McNally
Aaron Hooton thank you, I will check my local stores.

My Acid Reflux Coach
You should note that there are different types of apple cider vinegar out there. People usually suggest Raw unfiltered with the 'Mother' as this cloudy substance can contain enzymes and probiotics that may help with GERD.

Elaine Thompson
I use acv with mother but also take aloe vera juice a few times a day.

Debbie Adams
How much aloe Vera juice do you take. And what does it do for you.

Elaine Thompson
A capful 3 times a day it soothes my stomach if Ive eaten something that's upset it it's good for your digestion.
