ACV compared to Omeprazole (Losec) for Reflux

by Dana Rose

French translation

I was put on Omeprazole - a very common drug to combat Acid Reflux.

After a week or two, I noticed I was having heart arrhythmia episodes...which gradually became more frequent and more intense.
I was very scared.

Eventually I realized they might be caused by the medication and when I mentioned it to the practice nurse she quietly said,"It has been known to have that effect"!!

When I mentioned it to my sister she said" Yes, Omeprazole gave me panic attacks".

That put me off taking any approved-of, scientifically-tested remedies and made me investigate alternative ones.

I have been taking 1 teaspoon of ACV with 1/2 teaspoon Active Manuka Honey in a mug of warm water 3 x a day for a week and yesterday and last night I had no acid Reflux whatsoever.

I am also careful about avoiding most acid-producing foods.

I am also sleeping better and have more energy.

My daughter began the same regime with me and her acne is gradually clearing up.

ACV cured my reflux and it's remove my mole.
by: Dhee Duke (London, UK)

I read about it. Then I bought a bottle to treat my mole.

I mixed a small amount of apple cide with the same amount of water, used it with the cotton wool and dampened the mole with it. I did this for four nights.

It went black but I continued using it.

Then within 5 days it came off by itself, now its gone...I was very pleased.
Apple cider vinegar does works wonders.

It's also helped my reflux...been taking ACV one teaspoon with water reflux was cured by ACV.

I can highly recommend this, because it has helped me and I want to share this with others.

I have acid reflux,G.E.R.D,and I.B.S.

My doctors have tried me on all sorts of pills,and I too started with anxiety/panic attacks from the pills.
(The doctors put me on pills for the anxiety/panic and it made it worse so I stopped taking ALL pills)

A few months ago I started getting chest pains and I thought for sure that I was having a heart attack. The doctor said that I was fine and sent me home without further testing...

I talked to a lady on a health forum and she said that chest pain was a symptom of G.E.R.D (something that the doctors never told me).
She suggested ACV...
Am I EVER glad that she did!!

I can now sleep at night and no longer wake up in the morning facing anxiety/panic attacks!

I'm hoping that ACV will also work for my extremely high cholesterol as well.

I'm going to try ALL of the other ideas on this wonderful site...especially the hair and acne. lol
