Have you been suffering from heartburn symptoms? If you have, then you should know about some home remedies that will work.
Apple cider vinegar is a remedy that has been around for years to cure all kinds of ailments. It has been proven to cure sore throats, acne, flu, chronic fatigue and acid reflux.
Acid reflux or GERD symptoms (gastro-esophageal reflux disease) are suffered by many. The heartburn sensation is felt when the LES (lower esophageal sphincter) is not functioning properly. The liquid in the stomach, which contains stomach acid and pepsin, goes back in to the esophagus and create the burn.
If you do experience heartburn more then twice a week, you should think about consulting a doctor. Having heartburn only once is a while shouldn’t be cause for alarm.
If you use antacids to treat your symptoms, they will work for a while but are no solution. This causes your stomach to produce more acid to compensate so that by the end of the day your heartburn has returned.
Acid reflux symptoms can be cured a more natural way by using apple cider vinegar. This method will take a bit longer to see results so patience will be needed but the effects are more long lasting.
By taking two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar diluted with water, three times a day, you should be able to calm your symptoms. More may be necessary if your symptoms have been around for a while.
Side effects such as a metallic/acid taste or burning tongue are felt by some. But, the apple cider vinegar really works wonders and a little discomfort for the cure is worth it. You will be able to find many testimonials.
