    Apple Cider Vinegar
    Sloss11 posted:
    I was diagnosed with IBS just over two years ago. I was perscribed a perscription that i just refused to take since all the side effects seemed to be equivalent to my symptons. It was not long after the diagnosis that my mom discovered Apple cider Vinegar for her heartburn issues. Prior to taking Apple Cider Vinegar she was on a perscribed ant-acid which ultimately caused bladder infection after bladder infection which lead to back to back doses of anti-biotics. She did some research and discovered Apple Cider Vinegar for heartburn and acid reflux issues. Since she began taking the vinegar she has occassionally popped a TUMS and maybe has had two bladder infections. I read up about the apple cider vinegar and saw it could help IBS. IT'S amazing!!! Unless I'm under a lot of stress i have no flair ups! 1 to 3 tsps a day in 8 oz of water does the trick!!!

    Are U saying that the apple cider vinegar helped with the acid reflux problems?
    chocsweethrt replied to OTRBO's response:
    I'm assuming so, because I used to take it as well and it helped me. Don't expect it to taste like apple juice though lol.
