Poor a cap full in a glass with about 2/3 cup of water. Some people say it works, others don't. My experience is that if you think it works, it works. Personally I think DGL Licorice works best for me thus far.

Apple Cider Vinegar does work for some people.  I tried it myself and it was a total disaster.  I tried it when Gerd was at my worst.  I could literally feel the acid rise and felt as if I was going to choke.  The only thing that helped was to take another Nexium.  You have to make sure to buy "Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother."  Also you mix it with 8 oz of water and can also include a teaspoon of natural organic raw honey.  When you mix it with the honey and water it isn't too bad.  I think the aloe vera liquid and DGL taste worse, at least to me.  Good luck....

I agree with Duchess..

Apple Cider Vinegar didn't work for me. It won't work if your stomach is sensitive to getting ulcer. I usually can't drink coffee since it hurts my stomach. same thing with vinegar, it's just too acidic when it goes down your throat. I made my condition much worse, so I stopped.

I tried tons of different stuff now, but only thing that actually improves my symptoms are nexium.

nono  If you have reflux, I sure wouldn't advise it. My husband was told NO acidic foods. I think of a worse acidic food than vinegar!
If you live through it, let me know!

I take a teaspoon of ACV and a half cup of warm water during desperate times, and it has helped with reflux symptoms, mainly stomach symptoms. One of my colleagues lives by ACV & Honey, so for some individuals this remedy works.

I use Aloe Vera Juice when I can remember to drink it and Papain Chewable Enzyme, but these supplements only help an addition to taking my daily meds. They don't work for me during flares. I'm going to purchase some of the DGL Licorice to have on hand too.

Oh please, stop complaining about DGL licorice not tasting good!!!!!!!!!!!!

I cured myself with DGL and I didn't give a darn what anything tasted like.  I tried just about everything ever mentioned on this site and elsewhere.  DGL does work but you have to take more than one at a time (dissolve slowly in mouth with saliva 20 min. before eating anything and at night - don't drink after taking it at night and don't drink alot during meals either).  I took 3-4 at the beginning and then tapered down to 2.  It took me one month to heal my esophagus.

Think about it, it's common sense, you are using something that coats the esophagus so that the food going down doesn't cause more damage.  Very important at night also since it helps to heal the esophagus.

As far as apple cider vinegar, it's a good vinegar to use after you heal.  It actually reduces acid in the stomach just like lemon juice does (these are two very alkaline liquids BUT alkaline in the stomach NOT going down thru the esophagus).  Check out all my postings on alkaline way of eating while you are healing.  Basically it's going totally vegetarian - no dairy - no caffeine - no alcohol - no acid anything (tomatoes, orange juice etc.) not much of anything other than extremley nutritious foods such as ----- tofu (for protein), quinoa grain (fed south americans for 5,000 yrs), millet (you can buy puffed one in supermarkets, sustained middle east for 4,000 yrs), poached/steamed white chicken meat, steamed fish fillet.  Eat alot of watermelon - the most alkaline of fruits. 

I would have done ANYTHING to get rid of the horrible GERD symptoms I had......and I only had them for a little over a month.  I don't know what you people are doing living the way you do with this horrible disorder.

Try the DGL......nothing to lose other than GERD!

Everything I did I posted on this site, you have to check back on my postings.  I read this whole site when I got GERD to get information.

Good luck, and I will check back every few months since I see many of you do not go back and check earlier postings.
