Your doc can give: You something for it after he/she diagnoses it. You can also use dgl, available in the health food store. These capsules are licorice w/out an enzyme that raises blood pressure.

How do you feel about taking apple cider vinegar in water 3x per day instead of rinitidine, omeprazole, or Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) for gerd?

Worth a try: While the drugs you mention are proven to help reflux, they can have serious side effects, some even life-threatening. While I am not aware of research on apple cider vinegar for reflux, it is a widely-used folk remedy that has helped many. If it doesn't help, you can always try the drugs, or try other home remedies and herbal medicines. See http://www.Earthclinic.Com/cures/acid_reflux2.Html#acv. ...Read more

I sometimes hypoglycemic episodes.Is Apple cider vinegar  safe for me to use for heartburn can it lower my sugar too much?I only take 3tsp twice a day

Low blood sugar is: something you need to speak w/your doc about. He/she will teach you how to eat, usually small meals but frequent, perhaps six throughout the day. Lots of protein. Doing this can reduce the probability of apple cider vinegar being an issue. If you use apple cider vinegar for reflux, make sure you get the type "with the mother" on the label. that means the skins are part of the vinegar. Peace. ...Read more
