If any of you are suffering from heartburn, please consider a little RAW, unprocessed, unfiltered, apple cidar vinegar instead of proton pump inhibitors like prilosec and zantec, etc.
I had AWFUL heartburn for the past 20 years and especially after chemo/radiation. I had considered HCL Betaine (hydrocloric acid) supplements but was a little scared of such a radical move in case I had too much stomach acid rather than too little - which is the usual case by the way, too LITTLE acid.
Lo and behold, after only one week, my heartburn is GONE!! I am so glad to take the only medication I have been taking off the list... it is worth a try because your digestion is increased.
To start, just take 2-3 teaspoons in a little bit of room temperature water before a main meal, OR take 2-3 teaspoons full then chase with a swallow of water. Do that for a couple of days before each meal, gradually decreasing to 1 time per day either morning or night as you progressively get better. From what I have read, the pros to this type of apple cider vinegar are tremendous... I like Braggs.
