[YEA] Acid reflex and pickle juice.
It was the oddest thing - I have had acid reflex from hypothyroidism for years. As most of the readers here I tried everything OTC and Rx to help and most of the time it did nothing - or at times created more symptoms I chose not do have.
Oddly - in the last few months - I stummbled across in my reading that sea salt and ACV help adrenal fatigue. Knowing I had this I realized I was craving salt to no end and pickle juice seemed to be what I wanted more than anything. I recall way back my father drinking straight out of the pickle jar and as a kid I was horrified of the thought of him doing that.
Not only are my adrenals being repaired - but the horrible acid reflex will dissappear almost immediately when I get a bout of it. I love Valasic garlic pickles and that is what I mostly have in the house.
This morning - and it sounds gross - but I had acid so bad that I convinced myself to slam a couple of gulps down and again at 5am - GONE again.
Thanks earth clinic for helping me overcome this horrible acid and reminding that Daddy knows best!
