Worked Temporarily

After being diagnosed with acid reflux I used digestive enzymes for several months with limited success. I added acv (2T in a glass of water 3 times a day) which seemed to totally relieve the symptoms of coughing and excess acid for several months. I never get heartburn, rather I get a raspy cough and a croaky voice and acid in the back of my throat. From one day to the next, the acv stopped working and I increased the dosage (while still taking digestive enzymes) to no avail. I was recently diagnosed with bronchitis and was given anti biotics and am currently taking 150mg of ranitidine twice daily and 40 mg of omeprazole once a day which is slowly reversing the cough and excess acid and calming my system. in all of the acv cures I've encountered no one seems to differentiate between a person who produces too much acid and a person who produces too little and isn't that an important distinction? Also, can't too much acv produce its opposite effect? Most sufferers seem to produce too little acid and I believe I ended up created an internal environment that produced way too much acid and led to bronchitis. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, particularly because I would like to wean myself off the drugs I'm taking. Thanks
