7. Yes, it helps.
I use Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar because it is not pasteurized (look for apple cider vinegar that says it has 'the Mother' in it - or looks cloudy with floaty things in it).

Most grocery stores carry some kind of apple cider vinegar - most 'natural' foods stores carry brands like Bragg's. Spectrum makes a version and Trader Joe's has an own brand version, also.

Try a teaspoonful either straight up (like a shot is easiest) if you can handle it - or in a glass of water. It's kind of icky at first but you get used to it. If you have severe gas, you can make homemade alka-selzer by mixing about a teaspoonful of baking soda. Now THAT is kind of nasty - but boy does it work fast!

Take the vinegar at least once a day. If you start having an attack, take some more. Brush your teeth or rinse your mouth thoroughly afterward, because it's vinegar. Corrosive on the tooth enamel.

I started doing this when nothing else - proton pump inhibitors, nothing - was working anymore. It was astonishing how quickly it would counteract the agony. I stopped doing it when I actually stopped (for the first time in decades) having pain . . . it stayed gone for more than a year. I'm working on getting it to go away again now.

Good luck!
