[YEA] Raw organic apple cider vinegar has helped me so much, I feel like a vinegar evangelist!! I tell everyone about it. I heard about it in 2003 after having been in the hospital for chronic broncitis three times that year and had develped asthma, was on a nebulizer and inhalers. I have always had allergies.
After I started the raw vinegar mixed with raw honey - I have been drinking 1/4 cup mixed with a glass of water at night.- I have lost 55 pounds, which I learned was due to the vinegar daily - have not had bronchitis or asthma and have quit taking acid reflex meds, lung meds, singular for asthma, don't need the nebulizer or inhalers. I also quit taking nexium and just learned it is also good for leg cramps. I am a much healther person. I take mine at night, but think I will try taking smaller doses three times a day. Even my lung doctor agreed ACV was good for your lungs. He said his Mother raised them on it for sore throats and colds. Too bad the drug companies don't agree. Thanks for your site

[YEA] I have had problems with excess mucus which prevented me from getting a good nights sleep. I found your site and tried your apple cider vinegar remedy. I use one to two tablespoons of ACV to a glass of warm water. It worked like a miracle. Not only is my mucus problem gone it also has helped my asthma.I sleep through the night like a baby. Thanks again for this excellent website. Les

[YEA] I started taking 2 tblspoons of ACV in a cup of water 3 months ago.. In less than a week I was hardly coughing.. I have bronchial asthma. Now it's 99 % gone. I don't have to use the inhalers either. It's unbelievable. I've had this for years.. and now it's gone as long as I keep up the ACV.. and you can bet I will.Posted by Ropsonna (Everett, Wa) on 03/16/2007
[YEA] We use ACV for several different health benefits. ACV has become a part of our daily routine. I have a severe asthma, sinus & back pain. What it does the rest, is an extra benefit for us. We believe that it helps us tremendously.
We take 1 shot 1/2 hr before every meal. This takes care every health issues that we have. Sometimes we put some in our salad. It adds lots of flavor. For those who is overweight or maintaining your weight and want to each funk food. Taking 1 shot before each meal, is away to go. ACV breaks down fattening food.Posted by Huw (London, UK) on 03/03/2007
[YEA] I have found organic apple cider vinegar to be very helpful with a compost allergy and dry bronchiastis. Two bottle caps twice a day either in sweet apple juice or just cut with water and honey. It's so effective that I have discontinued Flixotide steroid treatment.Posted by DeeDee (Laguna) on 11/03/2006
[YEA] I had tried getting off advair and albuterol w/minimal success. Tried a lot "natural" remedies w/o prolonged sucess. I tried acv last week, and haven't had to use advair (a steriod) since. I have had to use my inhaler about once a day so far but not yet today....hopefully I can wean off that too.Posted by Faye (Roseburg, OR) on 10/10/2006
[YEA] One tablespoon diluted in water after each meal and at bedtime. Started sleeping thru the night without awakening - from the very first night. However, it made my bowels "overactive", so I cut down the dose. Had recurrent reflux, so gradually increased the dose to the initial level, this time with the bowels cooperating. I have been taking it for 3 1/2 months now and it's nearly perfect. I have only had breakthru reflux if I eat way too much starchy food at dinnertime. An extra 1 T dose fixes that if it occurs I can even eat out at Mexican restaurants and have big helpings, and still do ok. And it's really cheap (especially compared to Prilosec)!!!!! It seems to reduce the pressure in the gut so there is less pressure at the esophageal gastric junction. I don't suppose this will work for everyone. There may be more than one mechanism for reflux. Of course the sphincter is looser as we get older, but increased gut pressure from less efficient digestion may be part of the cause, too. By the way, my asthma is completely gone, too!Posted by Robert (Clarkston, MI) on 08/03/2006
[YEA] I have been using the apple cider vineger and honey treatment for 3 days now and last night was the first time, during my martial arts class, that i was able to make it all the way through the class without using tan inhaler. the inhaler didn't always work. my lungs didn't become restricted while breathing heavy and i was able to take normal breaths while running. i am amazed at the effectiveness of this natural cure and have already passed it on to family and friends. it is working great, for me, so far and i will continue to take it and i will not be using my inhaler anymore.Posted by Jean (Upper Marlboro, MD) on 06/02/2006
[YEA] I am taking ACV for asthma & sinus problems. Also using it for weight lost, just found that out today. I was glad to try an over-the -counter remedy for my ailments. I hate using prescribed medicine because they don't resolve the problem, instead it just makes it worse. I have being health conscious since I was 16, and surprised when my doctor told me I had developed asthma; which he stated was triggered by my allergies. Before I found your site I had been using a vitamin NAC, Quercetin, fish oil, etc., to keep my asthma at bay; but I had two asthma attacks in April, when everything started blooming. I didn't want to take steroids, so I went on the internet and found your site, since I wanted to do it naturally and not by a prescription. I am very happy to say that ACV has worked for me. I take two TBSP a day straight up, it has also helped with my sinus problem, and allergies. I love it, and just to think I had the cure for my asthma in my cupboard all that time and didn't know it. I'm also going to try the other remedies for losing weight. Will let you know how it turns out.Posted by Katherine (Las Vegas) on 05/23/2006
[YEA] 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar in a glass of water cured tightness in my chest and throat due to asthma. When visiting my boyfriend in Connecticut, I had an asthma attack and didn't have my inhaler. After I regained my breath I drank this mixture and almost instantaneously the tightness in my chest and throat relaxed and the wheezing, uncomfortable breathing stopped.Posted by Beverly (McKinney Texas) on 03/13/2006
[YEA] It greatly improved my husband and my sinus problems. Plus it has also improved my asthma. I think it also dissolve my husbands kidney stones to a size he could pass without experienceing great pain.Posted by Donna (Cherokee, NC) on 02/03/2006
[YEA] Hi; I have just talked with Delena my daughter who has asthma, and she told me that she always wake up stuffy and wheezy and she said she started Sunday and her first dose gave her heartburn but she was ok after that but she stated to me that she doesn't wake up stuffy and wheezy anymore. She is convinced on this and is talking to her husband's parents about the AVC.Posted by Frank (Summerfield FL) on 11/17/2005
[YEA] I have had asthma for 28 years adult onset at 42 yrs old I have been on aerobid and singular plus albuterol I have had to use albuterol from 2 to 4 times a day depending on weather, exercise, etc. I have tried all types of remedies and nothing seemed to help. I do cardio work and other exercise to maintain good overall health and I believe that keeps my asthma from becoming worse. My brother then recommended 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and honey which I take every morning before breakfast, after a week I noticed I was not closing up during exercise and using my albuterol less after several weeks I was not using my albuterol at all and I stopped taking the singular. I have been taking the vinegar for 3 months, and I am now down to 2 puffs of aerobid (inhaled steroid) once a day, I have no breathing problems at night or when I do cardio or exercise workouts. I will cutting out the aerobid this week as a trial peroid and give a comment in about a month on how it is going, I highly recommend it for people with asthma it may be the ticket to getting off medication.Posted by Jane (OH) on 08/16/2005
[YEA] I started using acv. It has helped me with my asthma, started using tabs will see if it works as good, haven't used my advair or inhaler in week and half.
