@ Bruce - thanks for the response. It's tough to self-diagnose. I was getting (and actually still do but less) acid refluxed into my throat. I do think I must have/had a lot more wrong than just reflux.
@ TheSixness & Sweet Potatoe - I would dilute the ACV in a small cup of water to help with the taste. But was always worried about
the effect it could have on my teeth or my throat.
I have to say the most powerful remedy I have come across is vigorous exercise. That seems to help the most and even if I eat some "bad" food that day it doesn't seem to effect me as much.
If only I had the motivation/discipline to do that every day
