Apple cider vinegar: apple cider vinegar is a digestive aid, and liver tonic. Symptomatic reflux should be evaluated and medicated until controlled and then remedies can be addes. Other digestive remedies include digestive enzymes, probiotics, and aloe vera juice

Probably not, but...: When you say reflux do U mean expansion of your abdominal circumference to feelings of distension, fluid retention, constipation, overeating, or do you feel pregnant? Hard to answer your question without further information and clarity. Over what period of time have you noted the distress--minutes or months, and what are your underlying medical problems (alcohol, liver ;/or gut diseases)?

Reflux: I have heard several of my patients say their reflux has been helped by apple cider vinegar. Not sure if they were taking tablets or not. You should see a doctor though since reflux can be signs of something more serious.
