    GERD = Cured Primally

    Shop Now
    I have been battling GERD for quite a while now. It even did not go away fully when I went Primal. However, with some research and experimentation I have found something that works beautifully for myself. Take 1 mug of hot water and add 1tsp of organic honey, 2tsp of apple cider vinegar, and .5tsp of cinnamon. When I drink this twice a day I have absolutely no problems with my GERD, and it actually tastes pretty good!

    Working hard to make a healthier and more active me.

    ACV is great for heartburn/GERD, glad to hear it's working for you. What really helped me was reading Chris Kresser's series on GERD, he goes in-depth on the mechanisms behind it and ways to combat it with diet and digestive enzymes. I only needed papaya enzyme myself. I've been off of PPI medication for a year now and I had been on it for nearly a decade. Next step is to see if my Barrett's esophagus has improved, I'm due for a recheck endoscopy this year.

    Here's a link to the series: Heartburn / GERD

    Not at all, and the benefits of organic honey and cinnamon are immense.
