[YEA] 02/12/2007: Anthony from Cary, NC: "Hey guys. First off, I've been following this site for some time now. It's great -- I recommend it to everyone. My grandmother used to take ACV years ago and I'd try it and it was horrible to the taste. So since i have been really getting in to natural medicine. I started taking acv in a pill form. and it gave me a yeast infection. YES, I'm a man with a yeast infection. It's horrible and my pH is always acidic. I'm also a vegan. no meat whatsoever.. I have been like this for 10 yrs, so I read about Ted's baking soda trick. I tried and threw up. I'm a wimp. so what i did was open up the acv pill, empty half of the powder out, and put baking soda in its place. I take two a day every other day.. OMG I tell I woke up this morning and shot outta bed and ran around the house. my wife thought I was nuts.. I told her I have so much energy. I always wake up tired. and aches. TED I LOVE U!!!!!! Wish there were more people in the world like you. Thanks for helping us. Anthony"
06/28/2013: Johnc from Cleveland, Ohio, United States Of America: "I just have a general question about the effectiveness of my routines. I'm not treating anything specific. I teach/train Internal Martial Arts [Tai Chi etc] and work out. I've got some bad joints and familial health issues all over the place. I'm also hypoglycemic. [some background]
I take a teaspoon of Baking soda in 8oz of water upon waking up and right before bed. Throughout my work day I drink a solution of 2-4oz of ACV [w/ the mother] in about 8oz of juice cut with about 20 oz of water. I rinse my mouth with clean water after every swig in case it starts affecting enamel. I don't drink coffee or soda [I do drink a lot of tea]. I don't eat red meat and I stick with dark chocolat [which I do eat about daily]. In general I try and stick with fish and fowl, fruits and veggies and I've cut way back on high salt and fat foods and am trying to stay away from processing. I also take a probiotic in the morning.
Is that regime a decent one? Am I counteracting anything important? Too much or too little of something? I mentioned the other diet stuff to speak to my body chemistry.
Any adjustments needed are appreciated. Thanks."
12/07/2011: Spikey58 from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada: "I have just discovered the benefits of ACV and Baking soda and all of this is new to me. I take it twice a day (2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda with 8ounce glass of water) So when is a good time to take this throughout the day? And also I take my first dose as soon as I get up and then I have my coffee. Is it wise to wait awhile to have my coffee or does this matter? Thank you"
12/07/2011: Spikey58 from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada: "Newcomer needs Advice
I have just discovered the mainy benefits of taking ACV and Baking soda. I have started taking Apple Cider Vinegar and baking soda twice a day now (2tsp Apple Cider Vinegar and 1/4 tsp baking soda) and I was wondering is it best to take first in the morning and at night (before meals or after)? I take my first dose as soon as I get up in the morning followed by my coffee so should I wait for awhile before to have my coffee or is this ok?. Also how long should I take this for as I have read 5 days on and two off. Thank you"
12/03/2011: Ash from London, United Kingdom: "Can I use ENO instead of Soda Bicarbonate in my ACV and Lemon drink? Eno is a readily available product from Grocers and Pharmacy and contains Soda Bicarbonate and Citric Acid and is used as a relief from upset stomach etc.
Thank you for a great site and God Bless"
11/27/2011: Khurram from Islamabad, Pakistan: "Hi I am a regular reader but I have some questions for you, I have hypothyroid. Can I use Apple Cider Vinegar because I am using it for the last 4 days and can I use it with baking powder because I could not find baking soda here. Is it ok? Please answer my question as soon as possible as I have stones in my gallbladder also. Waiting for your answer- thank you."Replies
11/29/2011: Lily from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia replies: "Hi Khurram, no, baking powder is not a substitute for baking soda. Look for Bicarb soda or Sodium Bicarbonate. These are the other names baking soda goes under. Cheers Lily."
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 10/12/2011: Maria from Frankfurt, Germany: "I have been taking 2 tbs ACV and 1/4 ts baking soda in a glass of water twice a day on empty stomach for three weeks, 5 days on 2 days off according to Ted's instruction. I have been taking it for over all health. I am reducing my weight much faster, more energy, clear thinking, better sleep, no more constipation. I am feeling great. But this remedy makes me urinate frequently. I don't have any kidney problem. Is this normal while on this remedy? or Is this side effect of baking soda? Has any body experienced frequent urination with this remedy? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

07/27/2011: Emma from Portland, Oregon: "I have been reading all the comments and what I don't understand is how BOTH ACV and Baking Soda can help - are they opposites? ACV is acid and Baking soda is alkaline, right?"Replies
08/24/2011: Tcf333 from Boston, USA replies: "I'd prefer to take this formula 2x a day using 1 tablespoon of ACV each dose. Is there a formula for 1 tablespoon of ACV to baking soda? How much baking soda per tablespoon of ACV would be ideal? Thank You."
[YEA] 10/17/2011: Briana from Roseburg, Or replies: "1tbs acv, and 1/4 tsp of bs. This one works best for my family without side effects:-)"

05/13/2011: Julia from Sydney, Australia: "Dear Ted, Ive got myself VERY worried reading all the ACV posts and yours to add bicarb soda. Whenever I did that I was severely ill. I have low stomach acid, addisons and too much ca & mg in tissues and ca blocking arteries. I thought any one of those could explain the EXTRA pain to what I normally have & the nausea by adding bicarb. BUT if I dont Im making myself more acidic. And my saliva & urine show up as being very acidic. Now Im thinking I shouldnt take it at all & I'll miss out on all the benefits everyone talks of. Also the vit c I take - the only one I could find without ca just ascorbate. Is that making me too acidic also?"Replies
07/22/2011: Isak from Vancouver, B.c. Canada replies: "Hi Julia, If your still too acidic try drinking some Kangen water. I have a enagic Leveluk SD501 machine and I did the Kangen clense which is 1 fluid oz per pound of body weight a day for 21 days of the 9.5ph water. It's not the ph so much but the other properties including the microclustre capabilities and the upwards of -500 ORP (antioxidant) levels. Wow is all I have to say. Made my body completly Alkaline, eliminated a really bad acid reflux condition I had, boosted my energy through the roof etc.
Kind Regards, Isak"
03/25/2011: Diamond from Salisbury, Ma.usa: "First time I ever tried Apple Cider Vinegar and bs I loved it, it cleaned my whole system completely out also for many years and because of this fungal virus I have had the hardest time moving my bowels, but after using Apple Cider Vinegar and bs I won't be needing other remedies. I will be taking a rest after this long bout of cleaning house, soon I will be back on the journey of Apple Cider Vinegar and bs again for more complete cleaning of my system. I also use it with my kitten I found in the street almost dead, I found one thing she had was internal parasites and very high acidic invironment and Apple Cider Vinegar did the trick, she is well strong and thriving."
03/19/2011: Joyce from Kerikeri, New Zealand: "Can I mix up ACV & B.S. In say 1 litre of water for a whole day or does it have to be done just before I use it? joyce"Replies
03/22/2011: Lily from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia replies: "Yes Joyce, mix your Apple Cider Vinegar and baking soda in the 1 litre of water ahead of time, that is ok. Enjoy Lily."
02/03/2011: Pelvis from Las Vegas, Nevada, Usa: "Can I continue my 1oz of Apple Cider Vinegar a day and begin taking a tsp of Baking Soda mixed in 8oz of water? I realize these two substances when combined create a volcano but I was going to ingest them 12 hours apart. Will they still have their individual positive effects or will they essentially cancel each other out?"Replies
02/05/2011: Lily from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia replies: "Hi Pelvis, you can take the apple cider vinegar and the baking soda apart, it won't be a problem. Lily."
01/30/2011: Maria from V N De Milfontes, Portugal: "Hello & may I say that this site is a g-dsend!
If I read one of the posts correctly, do I understand that adding Bicarb of Soda to ACV can rob the body of potassium? If that's the case, could Potassium Bicarb be added instead of Sodium Bicarb?
Keep up the good work.
