Ulcers Caused by ACV?

Posted by Mary (Humble, TX) on 11/16/2006

Apple cider vinegar cured my high cholesterol, better and lowered liver enzymes. My husband is taking it too and it has lowered his cholesterol, however the doctor just told him it can cause ulcers? any comments on this?

Dear Mary: Ulcers are caused by helicobacter pylori, a bacterium. The other cause of ulcers that I am aware of is doctor's antibiotics. The antibiotics tend to prevent the body from ridding itself of heavy metals and a fungus or yeast develops.

If it develops in the esophagus or the stomach, then you can get ulcers, or you can get acid reflux. If you fear for ulcers, just take baking soda 1/4 teaspoon to 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day and stay away from antibiotics.
