ACV compared to Omeprazole (Losec) for Reflux
by Dana Rose
(Nelson, new Zealand)
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.
