Tums. Rolaids. Pepto. Pepsid. Prilosec. If you know these products then you know they are used to treat heart burn and acid reflux. Way back, when I had health insurance, I was diagnosed with Acid Reflux. I got a prescription, a little tiny magic pill, that worked like a charm. Fast forward to the days of no health insurance, and anyone who knows me knows I was chewing tums again. A lot, all the time, when I wasn’t doubled up in pain.
One day my best friend said he’d heard somewhere that drinking a shot of apple cider vinegar would ease the pain. No Fn way! I’m sure I said something like that. I hate Vinegar, always have. But, I was hurting, and out of tums.
So, I took a shot and guess what? It was horrible! I remember gagging and coughing and my eyes watered. But you know what? That shit worked! I know, unbelievable! True story. So I’m a believer. I’ll tell anyone who will listen. And, as a bonus, I only have to take it once every couple of months.
One quick shot glass of Apple Cider Vinegar chased shortly after with a glass of water cured my symptoms. It’s been over 5 years now with out a tums, or a pepsid or anything made buy a drug company for heartburn. I found a site that suggested mixing 3 tablespoons into a glass of water, but I like to have it over with as quickly as possible so I’ve never tried it that way. What do you have to lose? Give it a shot.
