Works well for many: Like many natural therapies, there is no formal research i know of on apple cider vinegar for reflux, but many find it effective. On this website 21 of 23 who tried it report it effective: http://earthclinic.Com/cures/heartburn.Html & people find it useful for many other things.But this is symptomatic & it is more important to address the cause- see http://www.Healthy-eating-politics.Com/gerd.Html.

Bad remedy: Vinegar is a weak acid and will only add to the problems associated with acid reflux. Try over the counter medication.
