Curing Acid Reflux, Got Mouth Acid

Posted by Nancy (Augusta, GA)

Dear Ted. I know you have many emails but I don't know what to do next. Have acid reflux- was able to control it somewhat before with licorice) and probiotics. Had a bad flare up last fall -stress - started enzymes with HCL since my food just seems to ferment in stomach. Also started ACV for the terrible heartburn =wish I had know about baking soda - had no clue it was the vinegar since it helped the heartburn so much. I started getting burning in mouth and tongue -- I have had it for 4 month. finally found you site after many doctors, scope, etc. I started baking soda 2X a day 1/4 tsp. for about 3 weeks. Finally got potassium citrate to add to it on 2nd week. Helped some but I still have burning tongue and mouth. Four days ago I added back the ACV with baking soda l tbsp. ACV and 1/8 tsp. soda 2x day - take morning and night. Use the enzymes at noon and with evening meal (and DGL) Take ACV plus baking soda before bed.Really helps the nightime hearburn but still have the buring in mouth and tongue. I am so tired of doctors but need some relief. Should I try the lemon, go back to baking soda and water (doctor told me to stop because ph was 7.5. When I started checking ph it was very acidic. Should my ph be consistent between 6-7? I have been using ACV pluS BAKING SODA with the enzymes for about a week Have lost weight and I am really watching what I eat. Have high blood pressure but control it with medication. please helpe me get the burning mouth and tongue under conttrol. Do I stop the enzymes, increase the ACV, use lemon, other supplements? I just am so worn down from the burning mouth and tongue Had blood work done - B12 and folic acid ok as was the complete blood count.Still use the baking soda as mouthwash. Have white coating on tongue - had to take antibotics a couple of times last year. They really bother me. Please help. Thank you so much.
