I have had GERD for many years and used to rely heavily on meds. After reading the patient insert on Prevacid recently, I was scared into seeking alternative treatment. I'm glad I did! I tried Apple Cider Vinegar (I drank it straight and it burned terribly) and then went about my day. After five hours I realized that my symptoms were gone and that I had not taken my usual calcium anti-acids! I understand the new concept that it is an under-production problem and not over-production so this makes perfect sense that an acid would be the cure. I started out taking ACV twice a day for two weeks then switched to one Golden Delicious apple a day. I have now been off the medications for two months.
