Acid reflux too much or not enough acId

Posted , 3 users are following.

iv seen a few people question why vinegar is recommended for reflux . Iv just been reading an interesting post which might explain why ; 

Only about 1 in 10 people with acid problems actually do have too much stomach acid – the rest actually has insufficient stomach acids (hypochlorydia) or a different problem altogether such as a food intolerance.

    So we should all try to determine our food intolerance?

    I've watched a video where a doctor suggested this as well. He said if drinking a bit of apple cider vinegar with water helps with your symptoms then you have too little acid and if drinking aloe vera helps then you have too much acid.
