Gall Bladder Issues
[YEA] 01/20/2013: B from Richmond, Va: "I had the worse pain in my life from what they think is gallstones. After listening to an infomercial on you tube it recommended ACV one teaspoon in a glass of Apple juice. After drinking it the pain immediately decreased and in fifteen minutes was completely gone. Best thing ever."
[YEA] Karen from Salt Lake City, NV: "Have had years of trouble with irritable bowel syndrome and, more recently, gallbladder problems. Since drinking ACV (even during an attack) I find relief from these conditions and I now have only 1-2 gallbladder attacks per year after only 1 year of ACV. I previously had 1-2 attacks per month and was considering surgery."

07/30/2009: Lindae from Ventura, CA replies: "If you are having gallbladder attacks, flush out the stones with a liver cleanse. olive oil, epson salt and grapefruit juice. You can use the apple juice to soften
the stones before you do the cleanse. The attacks could also mean that your liver is compromised by toxic materials like heavy metals besides the stones."
[YEA] Denise from Brooklyn NY: "I have been taking ACV (2 teaspoons ACV and maple syrup) for almost a week. I have been having problems with gas--terrible gas. Everything that I ate gave me gas. I noticed in the very same day that I took the ACV my gas pains have disappeared. However, one of my tooth that has multiple fillings is hurting me. Now I understand why. I will just use a straw. I love my ACV. I am trying to lose weight also."
[YEA] "I was having terrible gas, my stomach hurt every time I ate something, then, the gas, both ends, it was terrible!"
[YEA] Ron from Long Beach, CA: "I was having terrible gas, my stomach hurt every time I ate something, then, the gas, both ends, it was terrible! My doctor wanted me to have a colonoscopy, as she thought it might be cancer. I had an old apple cider vinegar book, I have had for years. It told me to take two tablespoons after every meal, the same day I took it, my symptoms went completely away, plus, I just feel so much better, everything"

10/20/2012: Maggie from Powder Springs, Ga: "I just started taking ACV for heart burn that I've had for many years and My 11 and 7 years old sons tried and like it very much. Is it ok for me to give them a tsp a day? thanks."
10/03/2012: Dee from Melbourne, Australia: "Hi everyone I must say this website is amazing. Since taking extra virgin coconut oil and ACV my energy levels have improved so much within one week of taking it plus I have been feeling calm and not angry anymore. I want to ask earth clinic and everyone out there what if I rub VCO on my teeth first and then drink ACV. Will it be helpful protecting my tooth enamel in anyways from eroding? Will it be work like a protection layer. By the way I use straw to drink Apple Cider Vinegar mix it with water, but still I feel my teeth are becoming sensitve to vinegar. Please help me with that I want to continue taking ACV without worrying about my teeth being rotten. Please waiting anxiously for any suggestions. Blessings!!!!"Replies
10/04/2012: Marie2mil from Adelaide, South Australia replies: "Dee, I drink ACV through a straw too, make sure the straw is way back in your mouth - that way it will surely bypass your teeth no problems. Good Luck. Marie"
10/05/2012: Timh from Louisville, Ky, Usa replies: "ACV is manufactured in tablet form, availability around the globe I dunno; much more convenient than liquid."
09/08/2012: Tracy from Boulder City, Nv, Usa: "Hi all! I started taking ACV with the mother about a week ago. 2 tablespoons mixed with water once a day.. I noticed low grade earache, sniffles, & sneeze here and there etc... Then after about 5 days I doubled my dosage to 2 tablespoons TWICE a day in water... And BAM! I had major allergies pop up. I'm wondering if my body is going through a detox affect? or what? Isn't it supposed to HELP allergies? I absolutely LOVE the energy it gives me within 10 minutes of taking it, but what is going on with these allergies? I havent changed my diet or exposed myself to anything new that I know of.. Except for ALOT of white lines in the sky the past few days. Any ideas are greatly appreciated :) Thank GOD and all of you for Earth Clinic!"
[NAY] 07/29/2012: Ray61637 from Birmingham, Al. USA: "I have taken Apple Cider Vinegar for 6 mos. Daily. I have fungus problems, sinus problems and others. I do not see any change by taking acv."Replies
07/31/2012: Robyn from Melbourne, Australia replies: "I'll join in on this one. Severe fibro pain if you want to call it that. Severe allergies, impossible to live on this planet. ACV may have helped my asthma but 3 yrs on & the pain and allergies are no less. I do just about everything else on here to the point of almost being sick of it. These things generally dont taste nice."
10/07/2012: Caitlin from Austin, Tx replies: "Have you looked into eliminating grains, and milk from your diet for 2 weeks then slowly introducing each one back, monitoring your symptoms? Doing this, I found that these 2 foods were the bane of my existence; the ones giving me stomach aches, acid reflux, fungus, should er/joint pain, rashes, and a host of other problems that left when I stopped eating them. I'm talking about wheat, corn, oats, yogurt, cream cheese, and milk, period! And it did not take long for my symptoms to leave. For example: When I had extremely excessive bleeding from fibromalgia with a period every 15 days, I thought I was doomed to a hysterectomy. Relief came when I went on an extremely grain free diet. Within 5 days, the basketball sized, bloated stomach was GONE, the bleeding stopped and my next period was normal, with no cramping (I didn't even know I had started), no excessive bleeding, and, 10-15 days morphed into my normal SHORT days of 4.5. A fungus patch on my arm, went away within a week. Grain-free has helped every women with my symptoms and more that I have recommended this to. It's simple, and it works. As for milk, when I don't drink it for 2 days in a row, I wake up the 3rd day with a smooth complexion compared to rashed-up and dry. So, I have a choice, beautiful skin and no stomach pain, acid reflux.... or blueberry cheesecake ice-cream and pizza! I compromise by eating these "I gotta haves" one day, once a month - if at all because, I'm gettin better at this thing called "only taking in what's going to keep me running healthy and sane. " CAT"
07/12/2012: Roy from Lagrange, Ga: "Love all the articles about ACV, as I use it myself. Look up Willard Water for quite an awakening."
07/09/2012: Beccalec from Melbourne, Fl, Usa: "I have read many postings about the benefits of ACV, ways to take it, and discussions about its acidic nature. I am a nurse trying to get my head around naturalistic cures as wonderful alternatives to prescription medications, but I'm having a lot of confusion regarding how ACV actually works in the body. I still have a few questions that maybe someone can answer for me.
1. Perhaps I just haven't read enough, but wouldn't natural (unprocessed) apple cider give the same benefits as the vinegar?
2. If the benefits from ACV come from ingesting the "acid", wouldn't it all be neutralized by taking it with baking soda?
3. If the benefits of ACV are related to the acidic nature, wouldn't one get the same benefits by taking other highly acidic foods; lemon juice, tomatoes, etc?
Thanks for your time."
06/11/2012: Aphlixion from Tampa, Fl: "Apple Cider's main component is acetic acid. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acetic_acid
Acetic acid is only made up of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen.
For something to be considered alkaline it must be in the Alkali family found on the periodic table of elements.
So please correct what your contributor from Bangkok said about apple cider being alkaline. It is not and it casts doubts on the validity of everything else you are writing."
[YEA] 05/27/2012: John from Melbourne, Victoria Australia: "In the past 2 weeks I have commenced using a cap full of organic ACV with a glass full of water every morning after breakfast. I am 54 years of age in good health and with the exception of a cholesterol lowering tablet, take no other medication. Over the past couple of months have felt lower energy levels and find it difficult to get going in the mornings. Since using the ACV have clearly noticed that my energy levels have returned and in fact better than what they were. I no longer have trouble getting out of bed and have found that there is no sign of constipation as was sometimes being experienced. I wasn't sure whether this was my imagination but now having read with great interest the feedback that have been posted, I do believe it is as a result of using the ACV. I intend to continue using it and am eager to see what my cholesterol levels will be at on my next blood test. If improved, I will suggest to my doctor that I trial a period of time ceasing the statins and maintaining the ACV. When I have some results from this experiment, I will post the update."
05/19/2012: Erin from Clayton, Il: "I bought some of the _____s apple cider vinegar and it says that it is not necessary to refrigerate it, but I prefer it cold for the taste... Will it harm the vinegar if I keep it in the fridge? Also, I was wondering if it would be safe to mix it into my daily Emergen C drinks? Thank you!"
