Hello everyone! This may not be news to all of you, but I am so excited about my new finding I just had to blurt it out…
I have always suffered from acid reflux, on and off, however it is particularly acidic and painful during pregnancy. After 3 nights lost sleep recently and a particularly painful bumpy car ride I decided to google acid reflux, natural remedy. Apple cider vinegar came up so in desparation I gave it a try.
It bloody works, like a treat! 2 teaspoons in a glass of water and you can almost immediately feel the relief. I have been pain free for 2 days now, even got a decent sleep last night. And truth is I like the flavour. I believe it will be with me forever.
If you have reflux, I urge you to give it a go!!December 30, 2011 at 11:34 pm #517320
Thanks for the tip :tup: HUbby suffers from it as does both boys and grandchildren.
I had read about eating an apple does the job but at 2 in the morning its the last thing any one them wants to eat.
Anything is worth a try as you hear so many bad things about the commercial stuff :shrug:December 31, 2011 at 12:11 pm #517321
DH used to suffer it heaps = cut out the wheat and it’s gone.December 31, 2011 at 12:15 pm #517322
20ml straight when suffering from diahorrea works a treat also,burns the throat but does the job..
I’d rather a sore throat than a sore butt.December 31, 2011 at 12:37 pm #517323

Kefir is very good for reflux also. I have had reflux and knowing how bad and painful it is, pity anyone who suffers it. Does the apple cider vinagar have to be cloudy to be effective or can I use the clear one? Will have to give it a go.
Cheers for that

Thank you! 😀December 31, 2011 at 3:45 pm #517327
I don’t know anything about reflux, but apple cider vinegar is considered a health product for many reasons. The ‘cloud’ is called ‘mother’ and is considered an indication of it being a good choice between the products on the shelves, just give it a shake before using so you get the good mother! :tup:
I’ll try to pass this on to Mr FRs son who is busy chewing reflux tablets and downing antacid.December 31, 2011 at 10:57 pm #517328
Yes, I am going to get some next pay to use as a general tonic. I have heard and read so many good things about it.
Definitely get the cloudy one with the ‘mother’….it costs more but is better medicinally apparently.December 31, 2011 at 11:01 pm #517329
I hear the unpasteurised cloudy one is the best but I could no longer find it in the supermarket, so I got melrose. Its clear, but I trust melrose products. I used 2 teaspoons in a glass of water. It was easy for me as I have been having vinegar cravings (have been drinking the left over salad dressing). Mum uses it for her arthritis and she has tried just about everything, but is convinced this is the only thing that works for her.
I remember using boxes of rennies during my last pregnancy but apparently they throw your calcium/magnesium balance out of whack. And they taste discusting.
Funny you say to give up wheat because I definitely get it worse after sandwhiches and the like. I know wheat is acid forming, maybe I should listen to my body more. I ijust love how the natural remedies are the best and easiest.
I recently discovered black tea was great for getting rid of conjunctivitis. Just brew a strong black tea (then cool) and wipe away the gunk from your eye using a cotton ball soaked in the tea. Repeat until the eye has cleared. Saves hours in the medical centre waiting room for a script! Love it.January 1, 2012 at 12:19 am #517330
When I was preggers with DS2 a friend of mine bullied me (nicely) into having some cayenne in a shot of veggie juice.
Nausea and reflux stopped instantly. It was quite remarkable. I stuck to the Rennies though as it was more convenient in the night.January 2, 2012 at 11:13 am #517331
apple cider is also good in helping to remove plantar warts
