Hi all,
   My GERD has definitely flaired up recently.  And it seems like after I eat, the food just sits there in my stomach forever.  Does this happen to you?

ALL THE TIME!!  I know it must pass through or else I would have blown up by now, but I feel like it just sits there and then I do lots and lots of burping!!  Dr says its dyspepsia.  Well great, but their only solution to that is.........drum roll please........take more acid blockers!!! nono    I mean hello??  We need acid right?  Are you taking any digestive enzymes or anything??

Hi Nal,
No, no enzymes, but I just found my old bottle of peppermint oil capsules. I remember taking those a few years ago when this happened, so I think I might start those up again. I think they helped.......but they sure burned on their way out!! lol!

I'm on Apple Cider Vinegar for 2 days now.
Can't really feel any difference in terms of feeling better or worse.
Will continue and see how it goes. Felt the slight burn sensation when i swallow the stuff.

You can buy Apple Cider Vinegar capsules or tablets, instead of drinking the liquid.  They work VERY well for me.  I personally could not function with out them AND my Nexium.

so you take vinegar and nexium...that seems like two ends of the problem...adding acid and taking it away. pllease explain....this is very interesting to me

last summer i drank vinegar waater for a montha nd felt pretty good but then one day it kicked the heartburn into high gear and i got off the vinegar and back on the nexium

would much rather take teh natural vinegar than the chemical nexium

[please respond

I cannot explain it-- but I DO know that I feel BEST when I take Nexium in the morning when I first wake up- and then the apple cider vinegar capsules before meals.  I have been told that apple cider vinegar tablets provide the acid you need- in a natural form- and that because your body senses the acid, it does not produce a lot.  I do not know.  But I have experimented- and this is what works (FOR ME). Strange, I know.  I WISH I did not have to take Nexium- but I have tried coming off it- only to have to go back on.

Why wouldn't your body recognize coke as an acid?.....or maybe tomatoes?
I remembered taking some cider vinegar and water once, trying to figure out if maybe I had TOO little acid........and boy did that hurt!
I wonder if our GERD has anything to do with the theory about how our bodies should be alkaline, but if we eat the wrong things, it makes it too acidic??
   I just realized that you take capsules.  I wonder if that lets the vinegar get beyond your stomach, before it gets out of the capsules?

I wish I knew! Just the thought of drinking a Coke makes my stomach hurt! BUT- I will tell you this- I got back on my Nexium recently- and the past 2 days I actually have not used the ACV capsules- and I have had no heartburn or chestpain. Was thinking that I should maybe try just ACV capsules- without the Nexium- but now I am afraid - since I am feeling good! Guess I will keep up the Nexium for awhile-

My food can seem to sit in my stomach forever too! It depends on what I eat (pasta and pizza will definitely do it). I've recently started taking papaya enzymes and I have to say I feel a lot better. I don't feel bloated at all. I don't know if it's just that or the fact that I'm watching my carbs, but I'm going to continue to take them.
