Thanks guys.

Mike, if she does try and see if taking 1tsp of ACV before every meal helps, would the initial phase be with or without the medication she has been prescribed? Did you find with your client, that it took a few days/weeks before she noticed any changes, if so, how long until someone should start to expect feeling changes in this area after adding ACV?

She noticed a difference only when she was trying the acv and off the meds....cause that's when you know if it works. It was pretty immediate with her...and she noticed the return of GERD when she slacked off on taking the acv. Of course like Robb said diet is key. They need to get off grains (highly acidic) and eat more alkaline. Especially if you consider the average meal is meat, cheese, and 2 slices of bread....acidic..acidic..and whoola...acidic....no wonder people have heartburn.

Awesome Mike, thanks!
If you don't mind me asking.. what was the cycle your client took AVC for and then back onto meds? Was it a progression from a couple of days ACV, couple days meds, up to one week AVC one week meds, etc?

The cycle was....I told her to take it...she did for a while...got off the meds....the figured problem solved and stop taking acv....then got back on the meds again because of bad gerd....then I kicked her in the ass again and told her "duh"....so pretty much that kind of cycle...not too mention my struggle to get her eating more vegetables and less grains.....
