Avoid vinegar. A person with heartburn should avoid vinegar and other acidic foods or liquids. The person is likely already taking acid blockers and antacids to decrease acidity in the stomach. It would be bad to eat or drink more acid, because the whole point of treatment is to decrease acid in the stomach and esophagus.
I have been drinking apple cider vinegar to help with my GERD. It seems to help but what can I mix it with for taste and how much do I need to take?
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. They coat the lining of esophagus. Peace and good health. Apple cider vinegar is fine bt please make sure you use the "with the mother" on the label (peelings). Dilute w/water. Peace and good health..

Can I take apple cider vinegar pills when pregnant. I heard it helps with heart burn but I hate drinking it.
Then don't take it. Ask your doctor about treating heart burn while pregnant. You can still use OTC ranitidine meanwhile, unless contraindicated, best wishes.
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.
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.
Shouldn't B pbm. This shouldn't be a problem for baby. Your body will sort out what you ingest & this will not end up in the breast milk.
