Natural remedies, etc. (My adventure with apple cider vinegar)

I have acid reflux. I have been taking various acid reflux medicines from the pharmacy for the past few years, and they've all seemed to work well...I just got sick of spending $15-20 a month to keep my acid reflux at bay (so sue me, I'm stingy).

I started to take a tablespoon sized shot of unfiltered, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar each morning (or divide it up throughout the day), and I'm pretty impressed. So far it has cut down the symptoms and works almost immediately.

So, I was wondering if there are any other people who use a type of natural remedy, and what it helps with?

Ginger for motion sickness / nausea.

Coffee for fatigue.

+1 on ginger. Even a natural ginger ale or ginger snaps are somewhat effective.

Aloe juice also works pretty well for mild reflux. But mine is so severe that I couldn't treat it this way.

Baking soda as an antacid. Baking soda as a poultice for bug bites. Baking soda as a soak for tired feet. Baking soda gargle for a sore throat. Baking soda when you run out of toothpaste.

yes on the ginger

(tepid) black tea to rinse the eye of anything icky-pus, pink eye, goop, etc

natural (sour and/or greek) with garlic OR with honey to treat sore throat and/or infections. i kicked strep with yogurt and garlic, and copious amounts of salt water gargles and mouthwash.

salt water for gum health, mouth sores, etc

borscht for colds--head or chest

white vinegar for sunburns

coconut oil for sunburns, coconut oil for natural deep conditioning

supposedly baking soda to wash your hair. (mine hated it)

vinegar (white or acv) to strip hair product/oil build up and promote shine

rock candy (like old-fashioned on a stick rock candy) dissolved in hot water or tea for stomach aches, cramps, or muscle pain

i'll have to remember more later..

My sister suggested this for me and it's been working. I hate acid reflux with everything I have, it ruins me haha.

I get it a lot too. I've been taking Chlorophyll tablets, which have been helping, but are expensive.

For cold/flu I usually blend oranges and lemons with grapefruit juice, fresh garlic, fresh ginger and honey.
