Interesting site, widespread use of medicines (including aspirin, advil etc.) and SODA could be the big problem with all the GERD we hear about!
 
If you want to try Apple Cider Vinegar, DO NOT DRINK IT STRAIGHT (it will burn and maybe damage your esophagus even more).  Start with a tsp. in a BIG glass of room temperature water.

Just for the record, I have taken almost no painkiller medications and I have never been a soda drinker.

However, for a 10-yr period, I took antibiotics every winter for sinus infections.

Danie, I have always liked licorice so I enjoy taking the DGL. However, the combination of DGL with the apple cider vinegar in the morning is CHALLENGING. BTW, is apple cider vinegar good for people with too much or too little acid? (still don't know what I have). And the DGL - I guess that's just to heal the esophagus so it doesn't matter if you have too much or too little acid?

Lonibel,

I never used the apple cider vinegar.  I just posted how to use it since people have been posting that they are having pain from drinking it as it goes down the esophagus.  What is the point of that, you are trying to heal it not damage it further. 

One can definitely try it though, a little bit in alot of water. 

If I were you I would use it in the afternoon and not when you are using the DGL.  It can't hurt you I guess with alot of water.   I tried so many things when I had my horrible symptoms, it's a miracle I didn't overdose on everything!  The DGL was the one supplement that healed me though along with sleeping on the left side and the alkaline (vegetarian) way of eating.

Hope you are helped soon.

Danie :-)

Danie,

Did the DGL have any effect on your bowels? Do you still take it?

Sometimes I think I get indigestion from eating the same boring foods, over and over - like tonight. Had chicken breast (again!), yam, and escarole sauteed in a little olive oil. A fresh pear for dessert. Like you say - nutritious, but certainly not tasty or anything to look forward to. So maybe the saliva doesn't kick in...

Lonibel,
I had no problems taking the DGL and no I did not need it after one month on a regular basis. I only needed to take it a couple of times right after that but never again.
I still try to eat alot of alkaline foods but eat pretty regular food now and definitely nothing that is high fat or fried food.
Make sure you wait 20 minutes before you eat anything. I would also eliminate the olive oil for now since it's an acid food.
I can tell you that it took a while before my symtoms decreased (nausea mostly) while on the DGL and alkaline way of eating. You really have to eat very small meals and maybe eat more times a day. It has to be difficult if you work outside the home to do so but small meals are very important too.
Good luck.
