For those who have tried this or who know, is there a difference b/t one or the other? From how it seems some people hate how acidic it feels, I'd think the pills would be better? But no one really mentions taking them.

I have bought the apple cider vinegar with Mother. You can get it in a health food store. It worked great for me for a good while. Replaces acid you don't have. I just follow it down with a glass of water. Never had the pills. But at one time I had restarted it again and it totally messed me up and caused me real problems the second time around. But I think I was messed up anyway. So I had success with it for a good while.

How did you use the apple cider? Before meals, once a day, or everyonce in a while?

If I recall, I took it once a day. Probably first thing in the morning. But I also recall on a few occasions I took it if I was having a problem with burning. Regular vinegar worked just as well also though. It did actually seem to help for a good while. But you need to make sure if you do try it that you do down a glass of water behind it. Kevin Trudeau that wrote that book Natural Cures They Don't Want You to Know about. He stated people had problem with their stomachs and digestive tract burning because of lack of acid. That you need more acid. Acid helps digest the food properly. And when you are on protonix or nexium it takes away the acid needed to help you digest your food. Can't really hurt you unless you take it without water behind it, then it might.

So you're saying not to get the tablets? I'd think ppl trying ACV would take the tablets in a heartbeat b/c of the non-acid going down. But if no one is taking them, maybe there's something wrong w/them? I dont want to waste $14 if they're not going to work.

phixgrrrl, if you would be more comfortable taking the tablets I would do the tablets. I bought the vinegar as I knew of no tablets, and had read of the vinegar. Try shopping around. Look on vitamin world's site and see if they have the tablets. I buy many vitamins and other things from them. They are cheaper and usually have buy one get one half off sales.

I was thinking...if you have reflux due to the opening of the valve on the espophogus, therefore you have more acid than usual, why would you take this vinegar? If it adds more acid? Is it to reverse the effects of the meds (eg, prevacid)?
B/c right now I have acid even ON the meds. I don't need more.

According to that Kevin Trudeau he said people are having that problem because of not enough acid. I haven't taken that in a long time. A long time. I quit taking it after the second round when it did irritate me. phixgrrrl, do you have tightness or pressure behind your breastbone area and burning up to your throat and tightness? I am worried this is my heart even though I had the entire series of tests back in February. Had the same symptoms then. I read in heart disease symptoms in women you can have the squeezing, pressure, tightness and burning up to your throat along with the tightness in your throat.

Wit:
I don't really have tightness, but I do have a sort of dull burning in the middle of my chest up to the bottom of my throat, and a burning in my stomach. I have those throw-up burp things. I didnt have this much heartburn like feeling (in fact none) before I went on Prevacid. I went ON the med b/c of a gagging feeling. When I went off it for 2 days due to lack of meds, the burning got worse and I had diarrhea...like the acid went through my intestines...
Now i have the acidy feeling while ON the meds. I'm scared and frustrated.
So you're saying people have the problem of reflux b/c of not enough acid?
And what's the difference b/t acid and bile?

My doctor told me that the theory behind all this sphincter muscle not working is because we don't have enough acid in the stomach.
According to her the acid triggers the valve to close. And at times when you don't have it or not have enough acid) that's when you get the reflux.
I'm sure there's other things to this but it could be.

Kevin Trudeau said it wasn't a cure for reflux but to take it one time and see what happened as to how you felt with the acid problem after trying the tablespoon of vinegar.

Wow, really? When I asked my ENT why that muscle weakens, he said 'with some people it just does. It's nothing you did wrong.' And I explained that I also had been diagnosed w/IBS a long time ago and he said something like I just was more prone to abdominal issues. So he basically doesn't know why people get this.
And this is assuming I have the muscle problem. I didn't get any tests to confirm that. He did recommend ACV, but ONLY b/c he said other patients have had luck w/it.

Hello,

I have GERD and out of curiosity tried Apple Cider Vinegar last night. I felt terrible and nauseous for hours so for me, it didn't work.

I try drinking it w/orange juice...is that bad? I don't think I could stand it otherwise. I don't really feel any different.

I have tried liquid ACV in some worse case scenerios with reflux, and it actually provided some relief. I have taken a tesp followed by a quarter or half glass of warm water. I never heard of the tablets/pills until now. Some people actually live by this regimen with much relief. Other individuals proclaim that taking ACV and Honey daily keeps them free of reflux, but I've personally never tried it regularly.

Many of these natural remedies will obviously work for some but not all.

I take a shot glass and fill it half way (about a tablespoon) and fill the rest up with apple juice and just shoot it down. Kinda has a apple cider taste no problem this way. I do it at least twice but usually three times a day at meal time either before or after works great. I also do the black strap molasses mixed in milk and aloe vera juice mixed with blueberry or pomegrante juice twice a day. I have been able to get off of Nexium doing this the side effects of the meds were making me crazy. The only problem I am having now is the stiff sore neck and poping neck muscles occasionally, I think this is a result of changing my sleeping position to prevent the GERD. I have always slept on my right side and that is a Gerd no no, so I think my neck muscle are readjusting to sleeping on my back and left side. Anbody else experience this or similar problems?
