Ohhh..Stomach Pains!

It is still fresh in my memory how I suffered from a series of stomach pains two years ago because of gallstones and bile acid reflux. In fact, the pain was so overwhelming that I even underwent an operation (removed my gallbladder).

So, how do you diagnose yourself every time you feel your stomach hurting? A simple test will do whether you are suffering from excessive stomach acid or not. This can be done by swallowing a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.

If the said vinegar or lemon juice takes the pain away, then it means your stomach has too little acid in it. If it makes the pain worse, then you have a very acidic stomach. Mind you, the pain is very excruciating...(well, I even preferred to undergo birth labor than acid reflux pain).

Stomach acidity performs at its best when a person is stressed. Another thing, taking aspirin and steroids could contribute to the formation of acid in the stomach. Alcohol consumption as well as heavy smoking could also be a great factor.
