Okay. I am your typical hate-going-to-the-doctor, hate-taking-medicine (even if it tastes good), hate-eating-my-vegetables kind of person. Which is probably why I developed bronchitis. I did give in and went the doctor to get antibiotics (jury's still out on their effectiveness). But I have this horrible, non-ending cough that is driving everyone in the house crazy and keeping me from getting any sleep. Like other women out there, after 4 children each 18 months apart, my bladder is no longer any friend of mine. So coughing is extremely irritating. I am allergic to dextromethorphan and cannot take most of the OTC medicines out there. I was referred to this site by a friend and have been reading about everyone swearing Apple Cider Vinegar is a cure all. I happen to have ______ organic, raw un-filtered, with the 'mother' ACV on the shelf, and tried mixing 2 Tbsp of ACV with 4 Tbsp apple juice. OMG. It was the most godawful taste. It tasted like I accidentally drank the kids' Easter egg dye. But I got it down and I am awaiting the results. I will try another glass before bedtime, adding honey in to hopefully make it more palatable. I just need some sleep! I will try to keep everyone informed of this little journey I've put myself on. This is the first time I haven't relied on a Rx to make me feel better.
