Heartburn, also called acid reflux, is an irritation of the esophagus caused from acid rising from the stomach.
Acid Self Test
Take a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, white vinegar or pure lemon juice on an empty stomach.
- If there is an immediate strong burning pain, the stomach acid is too high
- If there is a mild warming sensation, the stomach acid is good
- If it takes more than one teaspoon to feel a warming sensation, the stomach acid is too low.
The more teaspoons of vinegar or lemon juice you need to take to feel a mild warming sensation, the lower your HCL level.
