The most gentlest way possible is 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in at least 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day. For about a week or two before going to the apple cider vinegar and baking soda remedy.

A stronger one will work better and most people seem to prefer the 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day, once in the morning and the evening.

A small amount of milk of magnesia WITHOUT aluminum added (1/8 teaspoon added to 1 glass of water) might kill certain organism that is causing the hiatal hernia. A magnesium citrate 250 mg taken as supplements is helpful as it will stabilize the blood serum reducing the excess calcium reducing the body's microbial buildup, and hence raises the body's immune system, indirectly this way too.

The key to everything is to get the urinary pH and the saliva pH to 7, as this will discourage microbial buildup.

A baking soda added can be used as a mouthwash to reduce (can be done with 5 cc sips 10 minutes apart only a couple of time) to reduce some throat pain too. The moutwashing/small sipping remedy for throat pain is about 1 tablespoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water. Some potassium citrate (or potassium bicarbonate), such as 1/8 tablespoon added to help preserve some natural sodium/potassium ratio also.

Just a quick reply that I try the cayenne pepper, Apple Cider Vinegar and raw honey for a few days... And it worked. I find that it has helped tremendously but best to do it when you start feeling something. The salt water thing did not really do much but Apple Cider Vinegar seem to attack the germ. My advice is to make a hot drink and sip it slowly. Gargling it only reaches the top part of the throat and not the bottom. I am so happy as I know "antibiotics" do more harm than good and should not be an option until it is absolutely necessary. Btw does anyone know what would help belching? thanks
