Told earlier that cinnamon doesn't help acid reflux. Does apple cider vinegar help?

In brief: You need medicines

Acid reflux can be easily treated but not with any of the home remedies.
You will need an antacid, preferably by seeing your doctor. If you want an alternative, take over the counter antacids like zantac (ranitidine) or Pepcid which are old but inexpensive medicines. More modern medicines include prilosec(over the counter) or any of the ppis which are prescription drugs. Acid reflux requires ongoing treatment.
