Stomach acids sometimes escape the stomach and rise up the esophagus. These acids escape when the lower esophageal sphincter (the valve that allows food to pass into the stomach) doesn’t close all the way or opens too often.
This can be caused by a hiatal hernia, or it can be caused by improper levels of stomach acid.
Big Pharma is making billions of dollars on the “little purple pill” and other antacids. They have duped the public into believe the big lie that acid reflux and heartburn are caused by too much stomach acid. But most acid reflux and heartburn — if no hiatal hernia is present — is caused by too little stomach acid, not too much. The lack of stomach acid prohibits proper digestion and allows food to ferment in the stomach. The fermented food causes the gas symptoms.
One natural cure is to use apple cider vinegar to increase your stomach acid. Take 1 to 2 teaspoons mixed with 8 ounces of water three times a day. If your problem is chronic, take it five times a day until the symptoms are relieved.
This won’t happen overnight, so stay with the program for several days until you feel relief.
