[YEA] I think I've inherited Acid Reflux as both my parents took a certain milky-liquid non-prescription treatment for heartburn. I have just recently started getting acid reflux/heartburn on odd occasions when I've eaten late. The last time I had it my first thoughts were to stock up on those fizzy tablets made of citric acid/bicarbonate soda or something similar (don't like the idea of that milky liquid stuff). I looked in my kitchen cupboard and had Apple Cider Vinegar which I took diluted in water (a couple of teaspoons in less than half a glass. It didn't help much so I rooted around some more and found a jar of pickle juice, My mum had sent me a jar of pickled peppers; I'd finished the peppers but the pickle juice was still there. I took a couple of swigs of the juice just by instinct and the sour-fermented taste was an immense relief, not to mention quite tasty!
I came here to look for a less weird remedy but it seems I've already got the top two remedies after all!
