    That fact is that we need a highly adciic condition in our stomach to properly digest protein. Using drugs to suppress this stomach acid may not be the correct way to deal with acid reflux or heartburn. If you do go down this route, you may be facing more problems as you get older.When too little acid is causing heartburn or acid reflux it makes no sense to use antacids or acid blocking drugs which decrease your stomach acid even more. Low levels of stomach acid may lead to serious illnesses.Some people have had great success in reducing or indeed totally relieving the effects of acid reflux by drinking small amounts of Apple Cider Vinegar. Many people are claiming that by taking 3 tablespoons 3 times a day there symptoms have been relieved.In some cases the heartburn you are suffering may get worse for around 20 minutes before reducing dramatically. In many cases this can be put down to the type of Apple Cider Vinegar taken. Try and only use a well-filtered organic vinegar purchased from a reputable outlet.There are many reasons you might have acid reflux. One reason is a weakness in the Lower Oesophageal Sphincter valve, LES. The LES is a valve between your stomach and your esophagus. When your LES valve is weak or relaxes at the wrong time, it can allow acidified, partially digested food to flow back up into your oesophagus. The acid in the food will burn the lining of your esophagus causing the so-called heartburn but can also feel like pressure in the chest, which is why it is sometimes confused with feelings associated with heart attacks. In some cases Heartburn is caused by to little or too much stomach acid.These foods can weaken the LES valve coffee, peppermint, spearmint, sugar, chocolate, onions, and alcohol. Once you have strengthened your LES, you can return to eating these foods in moderate amounts.
