Frequently Asked Questions:
Question: How would I know if the kind of acid reflux I get is caused by a ruptured or deformed esophagus?
Answer: If you have acid reflux with regularity, with considerable pain then you should see your doctor and get a determination. Most deformities are early in life and you would have been suffering for many years prior to adulthood. Acid in the esophagus over a period of time can eat through the tissue lining and become a serious medical problem and if you suspect this then see a medical doctor for a means of treatment.
Question: Does the product do anything other than its intended purpose?
Answer: Yes, it will stop hiccups fast. Just a tablespoonful in a quarter glass of water and that's it they're gone. Makes it a very handy thing to have around.
Question: Does the kind of apples used in the organic vinegar make a difference in how it works?
Answer: Oh, absolutely. It's one of the keys to its success.
Question: Is your reflux remedy acidy?
Answer: Yes, about the same acidity or pH as your favorite soft drink.
Question: Since the Apple Cider Vinegar, ginger and garlic juice is acidy and the taste I get with the reflux is acid then isn't that too much acid, adding acid to acid?
Answer: No. The acid taste and acid feeling (burning) in your esophagus is caused buy partially digested food backing out of your stomach through the esophagus tube - caused by stomach gas pushing this food with some digestive acids in it, but not enough for complete digestion. If the stomach has produced enough acid to digest the food completely, as it should have, you would not have the partially digested food coming up the esophagus. So, we need to add some more acid to the stomach to help out and solve the digestion problem immediately and that's what swallowing our reflux remedy does - and fast.
Question: What percentage of people get acid reflux?
Answer: Estimates are that up to 40% of the adult population suffer from acid reflux either intermittently or regularly.
Question: You state that in actuality most people with acid reflux need more stomach acid and not less. Why is that?
Answer: In actual stomach acid testing on individuals (something that almost all MDs do not do) the following happened: 85% of those tested for stomach acid needed more stomach acid - not less. But, the doctors prescribed medication for the opposite condition. Amazing, but true. Ask yourself when you got your prescription did the doctor do a stomach acid test first?
Most of the time, as you get older, your body produces less acid for digestion than it did when you were younger. That's the major reason why acid reflux tends to occur much more frequently in older people.

Question: How long has this remedy been used?
Answer: Many Amish and Mennonite families have used this successfully and regularly for well over 100 years. We're just making it available for the first time on the internet to the general public who may have the problem.
Question: Does the garlic have a bad smell or does it leave a "garlic breath"?
Answer: No, the garlic used is odorless and tasteless in the mixture.
Question: You mention that it also is beneficial in stopping embarrassing gas is that also true?
Answer: Yes. Virtually all gassing, either burping or expelling it otherwise, is caused by bacteria in stomach and smaller intestines. This can be stopped by digesting the sugars with acid - again adding more acid to the stomach and smaller intestines by taking our apple cider vinegar, ginger and garlic formula. Many who have had no luck at all with gas pills have had splendid success with this Amish remedy.
Question: Can I take your reflux remedy before I experience acid reflux as a way to prevent acid reflux?
Answer: Maybe. A huge percentage of our reflux customers have prevented acid reflux by taking one (sometimes two) tablespoonsful in a half a glass of water with meals. To test if this is effective for you, (without taking an antacid) just take 2 tablespoonsful in a half a glass (4 ounces) of water with your evening meal. You might also wish to also try it with your lunch.
Question: Can I sell this for you?
Answer: We do not permit the product to be sold from those selling out of their homes.
Question: What is the shelf life of the remedy?
Answer: If refrigerated, it is good for 4 years. If it is kept in a cupboard or drawer, the average is 36-42 months. We recommend storing in a cool, dry place.
Question: Is it necessary to keep the product in the refrigerator?
Answer: Not at all. You actually never have to keep it in the refrigerator. We recommend that it be in the refrigerator because it seems to taste better when cold. No other reason. Some people keep it in a drawer in the nightstand all the time.
Question: What about giving the remedy to children?
Answer: We do not recommend giving it to children under 12 and even then we recommend asking your physician about dosage.
Question: I am being treated for diabetes, is it safe to also take this remedy?
Answer: Yes. However, if you are at all uncomfortable with this answer, please ask your physician.
Question: How long will a bottle normally last a person?
Answer: Because you only use our remedy when you experience acid reflux, one bottle can last the average person two to three months.
Question: Is the certified organic apple cider vinegar in the remedy filtered or unfiltered and does it have "mother"?
Answer: It's unfiltered and does indeed have "mother".
Question: People differ in size. When you state that one or two tablespoonsful are enough, is that always true?
Answer: No. On rare occasion, when a person starts taking the remedy they have to "double dose" themselves and take 4 tablespoonsful. Usually after the first time, they can revert to just 1 or 2 tablespoonsful.
