Has anyone ever tried raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar as part of their treatment plan for fibromyalgia?

@A MyFibroTeam Member I have not heard of that but after i seen you question i searched it up and i am to the point to where why not try it you know that its not going to hurt you the only thing is will it or won't it help me so really you have nothing to lose im going to give it a shot. This is some info for you

Be very careful it can ruin your teeth enamel, cause esophagus problems and has been linked to gastroparesis.

@A MyFibroTeam Member This was the post: Apple cider Vinegar (has to be the mother) really does help with digestion, female issues, immune, and many other things. You have to take it for a long time to really notice the effects. It will make you pucker, but it is worth it if you can drink it. You can put in your food or find a drink it mixes with (for good taste). I've heard it even helps with weight loss, but not sure how valid that one is. I also take omeprezole, but less often when I remember to consistently take the 🍎 cider!

@A MyFibroTeam Member, we are all different and what works for some May not work for others as you can See by the posts here. I have tried it and it works for me, but as I stated somewhere above, I also take omeprzole Rx, so I don't get the acid reflux as long as i take my omeprezle. It will clean out your system at first, so some side effects may appear at first, but will disappear after your system is flushed. Some people don't take it long enough to realize the benefits, some may have flares due to other things coincidently at the same time. For others it may very well not work and or affect them adversely. Diluting it is probably key as far as the acid reflux and teeth enamel. Esophagus could be many factors including already damaged due to not medicating for acid reflux. BTW, I had my follow up with my gastroenterologist (every five years) and everything looked good (including my esophagus). So, You have to just decide for yourself and see what works for you.
