Thought I would share this great blog post from Balanced Bites on Heartburn & Antacids.
Heartburn Much? Taking antacids does more harm than you think. Your stomach needs acid to digest your food. If you don't have good stomach acid you'll have a plethora of chronic digestion issues. Carbohydrate(& Sugar) intake plays a huge part in this.
I recently in the past few months figured out I have low stomach acid, and one of the things I do before every meal is a tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar 10-20 min before I eat. It helps get the digestive juices flowing and tells your stomach to get ready food is coming down the pipe!
This is also another great read on GERD & Heartburn and how to treat it naturally from Chris Kesser - Licensed Acupuncturist located here in Berkeley.
