Hey all :)
I was diagnosed with GERD, Inactive Chronic Gastritis and Esophagitis (esophagus is inflamed). I took Prilosec for 4 days then stopped because of all the crazy side effects. I was taking Slippery Elm among some other natural things but still had reflux. So with some more research I figured maybe I have low stomach acid, since the doctor never checked, just told me to take some pills (suprise, suprise :P).
I started taking HCL for the last few days but haven't realized if it's been helping much. I hear all these great stories about ACV but I don't want to further burn my esophagus. I have some Braggs already and was wondering if it would do damage if it was in water. I hear it works wonders for digestion. I figure if it keeps me from refluxing it has to be better than the damage the reflux does. What are your experiences with it for heartburn and digestion?
