[SIDE EFFECTS] 06/10/2008: Hope from Inverness, FL: "Hi. I absolutely LOVE the benefits of apple cider vinegar. However, I must warn people about drinking it straight. You must use a straw. I have been drinking it for about a year and my teeth are starting to wear down. I even have a hole in my front bottom tooth. Really weird. The dentist told me it was from Apple Cider Vinegar. So please use a straw if you drink it!"
[YEA] 03/07/2008: Chris from Seattle, Washington: "I have employed gel tabs to avoid unpleasant flavors with liquid or oil treatments. In the context of ACV, this could avoid dental enamel erosion. When you fill them with liquids, you want to consume them quickly because they will begin dissolving immediately. I have found vegetarian gel tabs readily available."
[YEA] 12/12/2007: Cindy from Sterling, CO: "I have a small glass of about 1/4 tsp baking soda mixed with water ready, then I take 2 Tblsp ACV straight. After taking ACV, I swish with water, then swish with baking soda & water mixture & spit it out to clean all ACV out of my mouth to protect teeth. ACV has really helped digestion and constipation."
[YEA] 11/20/2007: Natalie from Decatur, GA, USA: "... all of the acidic foods (Lemons, Tomato, Vinegar, ANY Citrus) are very bad for your teeth IF you brush within 30 minutes of eating or drinking them!! Doing so literally eats the natural enamel off of your teeth. My Dentist scolded me about this!!! So, Brush before you ingest.:) Then, Drink lots of water and make sure to swish around your teeth."
[YEA] 10/09/2007: Merry from Coon Rapids, Minnesota: "I have a suggestion that should remedy the problem with ACV possibly damaging tooth enamel over time. Use a straw when sipping your ACV remedies. This wil drastically cut down on the amount of acid contact with teeth."
[YEA] MB from Belgium: "[Note: the following reader used white vinegar, not apple cider vinegar, to heal an ear infection. ACV might work just as well.]
My husband was suffering from an ear infection. He was confined in the hospital for almost 2 weeks still nothing happened, so we decided to check out of the hospital. And then I remembered when we were still small, whenever we had throat problems or ear infections, my mom always told us to apply vinegar on it & gargle for the throat. So I told my husband why don't we try it, true enough just after 1 day of applying white vinegar in a water on it, his ear was dry and we continue to apply it twice a day until it was completely healed, but sad enough he lost part of his ear bone because of the that infection before we found this "VINEGAR WONDER", but we are thankful to GOD, now his ear is totally healed."

[YEA] 08/23/2011: Teigan from Sydney, Nsw: "I'm so happy I found this site and read but this stuff - my energy and overall health have greatly improved since I started taking it. Advise anyone who is struggling to give it a try, its amazing!"
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 05/16/2011: Kathie from Houston, United States: "Why does ACV give me so much "nervous" energy? Am I detoxing or is it just its nature? I do not consume much caffine, only a few cups of green tea in the morning, so I really feel the effect."
[YEA] 11/12/2010: Spiceitup from Maryville, Tn.: "Apple Cider Vinegar..... My husband grew up farming and by farming I mean hundreds of acres. He and his brother were responsible for it all. Growing up he always had good teaching and a lot of love and respect for his family and friends and neighbors. So, when I first met him he told me about the long time ACV. He informed me that he just drank it straight from the jar it came in. Of course I giggled and said, okay that's nice dear.
Well, here we are today... MY little farming sweetheart is... Well over 50 and I can't keep up with him. And to boot he eats all the time, mostly at night... Drinks way too many coca colas and has energy coming out his ears. He has been to the doctor umteen times only to get the same outstanding results. HIs heart is perfect, no blockages, his blood presssure is on the dot. His lungs are as clear as a whistle on a quiet day and his libido even after 50 would put a teenage boy to shame.... ACV... Have you had yours today?"Replies
11/13/2010: Merryanne from Orange City, Florida, Usa replies: "Well, Mrs Spiceitup in TN, Well I want to say something cute but just keep up with hubby and pray for your lonely, single sisters in Christ here in FL, and I must agree that ACV is good for you, and a lot can be said for that clean, farm living, and Gods Blessings."
10/18/2013: Hotlava from Seattle replies: "Most of the US centenarians in this day and age grew up "poor on a farm"... There is nothing like organic farming and living a traditional agrarian lifestyle to boost people's health for a long and healthy life! Weston Price was right in his book Nutrition and Physical Degeneration- "Life in all it's fullness is Mother Nature Obeyed".
In Love and Health"
[YEA] 11/03/2009: Goji from London, England: "I've just reached the ripe old age of 72 years, but inwardly still feel 20. However, over the last few months I have been having problems finding enough energy to get through household and other tasks and, and life had lost its magic. I felt like an old person. In the past I'd tried a well known brand of organic ACV, but it did nothing to help how I felt. Then about a fortnight ago I came across an iconic brand (I'm not allowed to mention names) of raw, unfiltered ACV containing the mother, and I began taking one tablespoon in water sweetened with stevia three times a time just before meals. I now wake up with a song in my heart, the world has suddenly become beautiful again, and my energy has been restored. And I feel the way I walk has become more free, looser somehow, as though I am walking more like a younger person.
I just hope that the ACV continues to work its magic."
[YEA] 04/23/2009: Jann from Tulsa, Oklahoma: "I PUT ACV IN MY TEA WITH STEVIA TO SWEETEN, APPROXIMATELY TWO TABLESPOONS OF ACV IN A 44 OZ GLASS, AND I FEEL SO ENERGIZED THAT I ALMOST GET ADDICTED, I HAVE TO MONITOR MYSELF OR I CAN DRINK 4 TO 6 OZ A DAY OF ACV, WHEN I JUST PUT THE ACV IN WATER I FEEL SO GOOD THAT I HAVE HAD PEOPLE ASK ME IF I AM DRINKING BURBON AND WATER ...I KNOW THIS MUST SOUND QUITE HUMOROUS, HOWEVER IT HAS HAD THE SAME EFFECT ON MY VERY HEALTHY 84 YEAR OLD MOTHER AND OTHERS THAT HAVE TRIED IT........CAN YOU EXPLAIN THIS??? DOES ANYONE OUT THERE UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT????????? I AM AN USUALLY HEALTHY 54YO FEMALE"Replies
[NAY] 07/23/2009: Sarah from Arlington, TX replies: "I have been drinking 2 tablespoons with 16 oz of water 2x a day, using ___ organic ACV. I have not noticed any results so far, what so ever. Not with energy, skin, sleep, nothing. What could be going on, and why is it not working for me? Thanks!"
[YEA] 03/18/2011: Audra from Zephyrhills, Florida replies: "Hi All! I'm soooo glad I found this site. Sarah, I'm sorry to hear Apple Cider Vinegar isn't working for you. Keep trying and maybe it will. Just a thought.:)
I bought and tried Apple Cider Vinegar for the first time 2 years ago. Well, I'm now starting my menopause and I have every symptom that goes with it including high blood pressure and heart palpitations and believe me, they are scary. Anywhoo, I just remembered today that I still have some Apple Cider Vinegar left and had a glass. Man and I'm glad I did!
I haven't had this much energy in months and it lowered my blood pressure! Whew! I'll just be 40 this year and I'll be drinking Apple Cider Vinegar for the rest of my life. Oh, I also had a bad cough I couldn't get rid of and now that's gone too along with the headaches. Hmmm, no wonder doctor's won't tell us about this because they would go out of business! LOL
Thanks so much Earth Clinic for a wonderful, informative and very much appreciated website! "
07/29/2010: Keyser Soze from Amsterdam, Holland : "Hello everyone, I know in the States you use tablespoons as an amount for the ACV. In Europe we do not, mostly we talk in "ml" Milliliter
or 1 tablespoon of sugar. I searched the internet and found out that 1 tbs is 15ml of liquid! A normal size tbs in Europe is 6ml maybe 8ml! So, I think most European people take more than the half of ACV in their home made cocktail. As I read often "it doesn't work". I know there is a lot of misunderstanding between the European and US and English sizes or amounts. Just have a look on this site http://www.curezone.com/conversions.asp
I hope that Earthclinic can make this clear on the site. So that it's clear for everyone on this planet. Regards KS, Holland Amsterdam"
EC: Thank you so much, Keyser. Your advice has been posted to our Remedy Guidelines page here: http://www.earthclinic.com/guides.html
07/29/2010: Tina from Utrecht, Netherlands replies: "To Keyser Soze from Amsterdam, You can buy the american measuring cups and sets with teaspoon, tablespoon, 1/4, 1/2, 1/8 tablespoon at any Blokker here for only 2-3 euro per set. Might be easier than converting everything. Groet, Tina"
07/30/2010: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "If you live in Europe indeed most tbspoons are smaller but you can buy measuring spoons and those are exactly the same. They usually come in sets of all sizes and bread makers and so often come with a measuring spoon. I don't agree with you that we don't use spoons as measure, we do, for smaller quantities. I cook a lot and I never come across ml for such small quantities, always tbspoons or tspoons. I use French, English, Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese recipes."
[YEA] Ratazayah from Newark, NJ: "When I was an infant the Dr's told my mom I was going to die, due to a particularly high fever. She was told by an elderly friend to soak a wash cloth in acv and place one on my forehead and one on my stomach, while it smells like all get out, my mom was able to check me out of the hospital and from that day onward, it's literally been a life saver to all the children in our family with high fevers. It takes about an hour to break the fever."

[WARNING!] 05/24/2008: Siberianwolf from Omsk, Russia replies: "Whoa!Whoa! Whoa! FEVER is your FRIEND !!!! It is the indication that your body is FIGHTING the infection. Mess with it at your peril. Let your body do the work it was designed to do...heal itself. NO outside interference can do that."
05/26/2008: Joyce from Joelton, Tn replies: "To the Siberian Wolf on his "Whoa" on fever Hi Siberian Wolf, I agree with you onleaving the fever alone to let it do its job of fighting off infection. However, I noted that only one of those who wrote in said it failed to reduce the fever and that none of those who said it worked mentioned having to repeat the egg whites later. So I have come to the conclusion that the next time me or my loved ones have a fever, we'll give it a try and see if it works. Just think of the wear & tear on the body and the misery you could avoid if using egg whites one time removed the fever and it didn't return. I would have to say that obviously those egg whites delivered nuclear bomb to my soldiers fighting the infection and they wiped the enemy out!! Of course some of those who succeeded with egg whites could write in and let us know if the fever return and they had to repeat the egg whites. It would be helpful to all of us to know."
10/18/2013: Hotlava from Seattle replies: "I agree with Mr. Whoa that Fevers are our Friends....
However, high fever (over 102) can be very damaging to our body tissues/probiotic bacteria/enzymes, especially in infants and children. Bringing down a high fever using ACV on a washcloth is a great remedy that people should tuck into their memory banks esp. when caring for children!"
[YEA] David from Chicago IL: "I saw somewhere that apple cider vinegar cures Fibromyalgia. I don't definitely have it, but was diagnosed with it based on symptoms years ago. I've had muscle spasms varying in severity for 24 years. I just started to come out a 1 1/2 year bout with it. Drank vinegar and have been completely pain free for a week. It's asinine this isn't common knowledge. It feels kind of like an metabolism enhancer too. I'm down to 1 tablespoon twice a day. And I repeat I'm completely pain free. I don't know what was wrong with me, thought it was just something I had to live with. Somebody tell a doctor!"
