Since the ACV works for you, is it okay to ask how old you are?[/QUOTE]

I'm 63

Never had any digestive problems until my late forties

Yesterday I did buy some Betaine HCL, 1000mg in 2 tablets

took 2 last night before dinner

seemed to work well and didn't use the ACV or the papaya enzymes

I will continue this. One problem I was having was difficulty swallowing, to the point I was choking on food that went down "wrong way" several times in each meal. That's why my allergist prescribed the Omeprazole

seems like overkill

This concerns me because my mother and a friend both take Omeprazole and it seems they still have stomach pain and trouble

from my experience it seems it causes gas and bloating

So then what? I wasn't even told about that

if simple remedy or supplement can help, why can't the word get out

not digesting your food can cause health problems.. so just treating a symptom, and not treating it very well

is a stupid idea

Is Nexium any different? I heard it was just changed a little so they could get a new patent
[QUOTE=bride527;4039610]I have been reading that Apple Cider Vinegar is great for reflux.
Has anyone tried it and does it work? You are supposed to take 2 to 3 tsp. with water and drink it once or twice a day......I am tempted to try it.....I am off my prilisec and have noticed that my symptoms are slight.....Don't want them to return. I felt great while on the Prilisec but don't want to take that forever.....comments? bride527[/QUOTE]

It didn't work for me. But I only did it a few times. How long are you supposed to do it before it starts working? I read that you are supposed to mix in 1 teasp. of raw honey with it. I've also tried apples, Aloe Vera juice, Zegerid, Prilosec, and Nexium. Nothing works for me.
