This site is a lifesaver. I have struggled with acid reflux since I was 14 and have never really found a way to help it. Tums and anti-acids really didnt work for me..almost made the pain worse. A few months ago I saw a few people on here post about pickle juice. That worked wonders for me for a few times...then it stopped giving me relief. So here I am tonight. It's now 6:30am, and I've been up since 2. Saw on here a mustard and honey post and just gave it a try a few minutes ago. I have a little relief, but still in quite a bit of pain. I'll give it awhile longer before I try something new. But for anyone looking for quick relief, do pickle juice! I don't know why it stopped working for me after a few months, but it was amazing while it lasted!

I tried everything from acid reducers to digestive enzymes, etc. and got very little relief; always temporary. Then I tried apple cider vinegar (2 T ACV, 2 T honey, water) and it worked wonders. I took it twice per day. Then I discovered kefir (cultured milk product) and realized when I drank it every day, I didn't need the ACV. It also worked better. Kefir is lactose free. You can buy kefir at the grocery store, or you can order the kefir grains (culture) and make it yourself for pennies vs. store bought. I found out later that the reason ACV worked was because it was made from fermented apples, therefore, it is probiotic in nature. Great site to learn from:
