Apple Cider Vinegar Causes Frequent Urination During the Night

Posted by Bill (Orlando, FL) on 10/20/2006

I've been taking 2 tbs of ACV with a tsp of honey and 8oz of water 3 times a day for 10 days now. One side effect is that I wake up 2 times a night to go to the bathroom, I'm guessing since the potassium acts a natural diuretic, does that sound normal? My acid reflux hasn't abated yet, and I don't expect it to go away overnight. Any guidelines on how long it might take to see some results? FWIW, I made sure to get a natural ACV (Bragg's)."

Dear Bill: To further abate the acid reflux, for me it should take about one week to notice maximum. But to treat the acid reflux, you try to add baking soda to it. For every two tablespoon of ACV add 1/4 baking soda. It will provide sufficient buffers to reduce the acid reflux. Frequent trips maybe due to lessening of water retention and reduced blood pressure.

The second thing I would do differently is to take some licorice extract, certain acid refluxes may be due to the bug problem, e.g. such as helicobacter pylori. Also adding 1/8 teaspoon of borax per liter of water, will also kill these bugs better. Taking some zinc supplements, but zinc acetate being the preferred ones, will also help further reducing the acid reflux caused by a bug.

Certain other cases is due to yeast issue. So zinc, manganese and molybdenum should help.
