After my last blog, I felt it was only appropriate to help those who are hooked on Ant-Acids.
As I mentioned previously, Ant-acids are the number one over the counter drug sold. But, have no fear, there is a quick fix for those who get severe Acid- Reflux.
What I am about to share with you is my most favorite thing in the whole world, I swear by it for many different things and I make everyone I know eat in as much as they can. It’s a simple thing but I think it changes the life of many: Apple Cider Vinegar.
I stumbled upon this potion maybe 5 years ago when my brother was having severe acid reflux, and he was told to stay away from coffee, tea, spicy foods, etc and also to take an ant-acid. I agree with staying away from acid forming foods, but I couldn’t bare the idea that he would have to pop a pill to solve his problem EVERYTIME.
So as I delved into this more, I came to learn a few interesting things.
When you take an ant-acid – it depeletes ALL the acid from the body.
Wow, problem solved! You feel like million dollars within minutes.
What you may not be aware of, is that the body has to have a certain amount of acid to be in its natural normal state.
The Body all of a sudden doesn’t have ANY acid and it needs some. So to combat this it produces double the amount!!
So lets go through this again,
– You have acid reflux
– You take a ant-acid (i.e. Alka Selzter)
– You feel great for 2 hours
– Your body produces double the amount ( bc you need certain amount of acid)
– So you probably pop another ant-acid or even 2 in the same day
And there we go… we have a cycle of useless dependency.
So how does Apple Cider Vinegar help?
Well, firstly I should warn you it tastes horrific.
What it does is, it neutralizes the PH balance in the body instantly. So your body gets to a neutral state and doens’t need to produce more acid or less acid, you will feel immediate comfort. You should use this as a sign that to start alkalizing the body.
Here are some of the benefits of ACV:
Helps you with heartburn and improves bowel irregularity and toxins. Because of that it also helps as a weight loss agent as it breaks down fats.
Many use it to clear the skin and help with acne, They either apply it topically on the face or drink it.
It also helps with joint pain and some say arthritis also.
It also helps to keep teeth white if you rinse your mouth with (there is my obsession with teeth again).
Please make sure you use the Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. You should only drink it with “The Mother” in it. This is the film of the Apple Cider Vinegar that has the most antibacterial and antifungal qualities. I drink it with warm water in the mornings. Some people add some honey to make the taste a little more bearable!
I use either of the following:
Do not use this or any processed ones:
Apple Cider Vinegar also helps with pets in 2 different ways – it controls fleas and helps to keep their coats shiny.
And If they are teething on anything in the house, just put a dab of ACV on it and it will keep them away.
Enjoy the Day!
