Today was the first day that I was totally symptom free after wandering about for 8 months looking for symptom relief since March.

I have started taking Apple Cider Vinegar about 3 to 4 times a day since past 4 days.

Have stopped Gaviscon for 2 days now, and also stopped all other "GERD" OTC meds for a few weeks now, after realizing that none of them help.

I am hoping the relief lasts as long as I continue the ACV.
I read about it online.

Basically it says if low acid is your issue, then ACV will help.

I take about 1 teaspoon with 1 cup of water first thing in the morning, then with lunch, then dinner, then just before I sleep.

I hope this will continue, and symptoms don't return.

I did have a Manometry and PH tests recently.
My manometry was normal, and Ph reflux episoles were at the high side of normal. ( 73 actual vs 73 upper limit)
I also did the home test for low acid, but that was inconclusive, as it some times was good ( good acid) and most time was negative (low acid).

In fact I can now have a couple beers (or more) before dinner, and don't have symptoms as I take the ACV just after dinner, and before bed in about 3 to 4 hrs.
