Over the many years of dealing with this, I have clearly read...probably way too much about these dang problems. There are 3 things that come up more often than others and I am wondering what kind if results people have gotten from them.
Apple Cider Vinegar - I can say with personal experience that this has decreased my palps. Not nearly a cure, but they have decreased. My EP said to continue with it.
Magnesium - I never really gave this a good try because I used to take it with calcium and I had gotten a kidney stone so I stopped taking them both (tho I had no real reason to think it was caused by the calcium...just being cautious). If this has helped people...how much do you take? And what kind of magnesium is best?
Black Strap Molasses - This is a more recent thing I have heard about. So I did buy a bottle. But not so sure how to use it. Any thoughts on this?
Apple cider vinegar is an old home remedy to improve stomach acid and digestion. Blackstrap molasses is another aid to digestion as it contains betaine hydrochloride. You can also take betaine hydrochloride with pepsin supplements which actually encourages the stomach to produce more acid on its own. Without enough stomach acid, say hello to nutrient deficiencies and there are several nutrients essential to heart rhythm. One is magnesium. Organic types of magnesium absorb better. They include aspartate, malate, glycinate, citrate and succinate.
High and low stomach acid have basically the same symptoms however stomach acid lowers as we age. This is besides conditions that lower stomach acid such as hypothyroidism and H Pylori bacteria. High stomach acid is very uncommon despite the billion dollar antacid industry trying to convince us otherwise.
