I tend to eat late and sometimes the wrong types of foods. I have been plagued by acid reflux for most of this year but have denied medical treatment even though it is free for me because of the superior Canadian Health system (doctor and pills).. Anyways,,, I have found (via youtube) that Apple Cider Vinegar mixed in a shot glass with equal amount of water taken before bed prevents being awakened by the choking reflux. Apple Cider vinegar in such a small dose. Who knew? I have since read apple juice instead of water, but have not tried. I sometimes add a small bit of Baking Soda (1/4 teaspoon). This remedy is awesome. gl NOTE: rinse or brush after to avoid acid melting your teeth into rotting goo.
