Using Acid To Cure Acid Reflux
Q: Using Acid to Cure Acid Reflux?
You would think that Apple Cider Vinegar would be the last thing anyone would want to take for Acid Reflux. But As it turns out; many say it really works!
A:If it works for you, then great. However, I wouldn't (in general) trust other people's account of an herbal remedy's success, since you don't know their motives. More importantly, acid reflux is not caused by a lack of acid in the stomach. It is caused by the movement of the highly acidic stomach acid into your esophagus. While something like apple cider vinegar may make you feel better, it may not eliminate the acid - so I would be concerned that you're treating the symptom, and not the underlying problem. People who have acid reflux can be at risk for something called Barrett's esophagus - which is a pre-cancerous condition. If you're having frequent bouts of reflux, I'd encourage you to head to your doctor, and think seriously about medical treatment.
