Safe with an Esophageal Condition?

Posted by Bilal (Venezeula) on 04/01/2007

I have been doing some research about the (ACV) and i have found in many web sites that most of the people with (ERGE) simptoms have tried the vinegar and it has helped them a lot, in my case i have been felling these simptoms more often lately, im on a diet as the doctor told me to be but i see no results i can´t sleep, i can´t eat and i´m taking medication Pantop(pantoprazole) and Tilium(domperidone) i have not tried the (ACV) yet because i have sophagitis and i could not find any indication that i can drink the vinegar in my condition, now my questions are Can i drink (ACV) having sophagitis? if yes, how often and for which period of time can i drink the(ACV)?

Bilal: No Apple cider vinegar cannot be taken because it irritates the esophagus. You should take neutral solution, which is 2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water. Allow 5 minutes of reaction and fizzing to stop. The pH is about 7 and it should not irritate the esophagus. The dose is taken two times a day.
