Does Vinegar Treat Acid Reflux?

Mar 4, 2008
Are you looking for a natural way to treat the problem of acid reflux. If so then why not consider giving the acid reflux and vinegar treatment method a try. Although there are plenty of over the counter and prescribed medications one can use for treating this problem, they do come with their downsides as well. The main one of these is that they can cause unwanted side effects, which may lead to other health issues for a person suffering from acid reflux. Plus sometimes these medications may well cause the problem to become worse rather than better.

This is probably one of the main reasons why so many people are now preferring to rely on natural remedies over conventional medications. Plus they are also far cheaper to buy than conventional types of medication that you can buy. In this article we look at why some people are now considering trying to use vinegar as a way of treating their acid reflux problems.

As you will soon discover when you look more closely at this method of treating acid reflux there are plenty of stories from people who have found it successful. But there are still plenty of people who feel that it may be a complete waste of time. The reason for this being that vinegar is acidic and therefore it will actually make the condition much worse rather than helping to improve it.

One of the reasons why it may be that this kind of treatment works is because rather than the person's body producing too much acid in their stomach it is not producing enough. When this occurs there stomach finds it difficult to digest properly the food that they have consumed. The food that is then left in their stomach begins to ferment and this can then result in the symptoms of acid reflux occurring.

Yet a person who chooses to increase their vinegar consumption (ideally it should be apple cider vinegar) they find that their stomach is able to digest food better. If the stomach is then able to digest the food a person has eaten this will reduce the likelihood of the symptoms of acid reflux happening. Even though there are plenty of success stories around as yet there is no firm evidence through tests being carried out to show this.

What apple cider vinegar actually does is that it mimics the levels of acid that would normally be found in your stomach. This then results in the food that you have eaten being correctly digested and absorbed by your body.

Before you actually start using vinegar to treat your acid reflux the first thing you should do is discuss the matter with your doctor. If they agree to you using this method then you need to take 1 tablespoon before each meal that you eat. You may find that within 3 days of starting this course of treatment you start to feel some relief from your acid reflux symptoms. Also if you continue to use it then you may find that within 3 to 9 months of starting the treatment your symptoms will disappear completely.

But although there are many people who have found that by increasing their intake of vinegar has proved to be effective for them. Unfortunately, there are plenty of others who have found that the acid reflux and vinegar treatment completely ineffective and has made their problem far worse.
