Acv cured my upset stomach and diarrhea within 10-15 minutes. I had a couple bouts of borderline explosive diarrhea and felt queasy/weird afterwards. I took about 2 tablespoons of ACV in a cup of cool water and ice. I put a bit of honey in it too to help sweeten (though the water is so cold, it didnt really soak in...). I had a bit of a drinking night last night (whiskey and vodka primarily) and had coffee this morning from freshly roasted beans. Needless to say, that kind of ended badly. Thank god ACV was there to save me.. ! This stuff is great. Be sure to use a straw and make sure you get the straw deep into your mouth so you dont hit your teeth with the vinegar. It's not great for your chompers. The kind of ACV I used was not organic with mother (if you dont know what that means, look it up because it's good to know) and was just taken from the grocery store. I havent tried organic mother ACV yet, but its supposed to have a lot more raw nutrients in it than regular brands. Good luck!

I had food poisoning 14 days ago and although the bad diarrhea subsided, i have had loose bowels a couple of times each day and cramping and gas all day. I wasn't getting any better. I began using pepogest and digestive enzymes and that helped a little. Then i read about acv on earthclinic so i bought some immediately (all i could find was unfiltered/pasteurized). I took a tablespoon in 8oz of water 3 times a day with each meal. After 1 day I am already feeling relief. I have much less cramping and gas and have only gone once today. I hope that this remedy continues to help me improve.

Thank you for your tip on using apple cider vinegar for diarrhea. I had diarrhea for three days straight and found your website while I was searching for a home remedy. I went to a health food store and found ACV in pill form. After the first dose, I felt better but still had some loose stools. After one full day of taking the ACV, no more diarrhea! I feel so much better. I've never had a home remedy work so well before. What a relief!

My 2 year old son and I had a bad case of stomach cramps which turned into 3 days of watery diarrhea every 30 min or so or everytime we ate or drank anything. I checked this site for remedies and tried Apple Cider Vinegar(ACV) (I already had in my cabinet) mixed with water.
I mixed 2 tsp ACV in about 20 oz. of water. I smelled it in the glass and knew it would be hard to get my 2 year old to drink this!! I poured half into a glass for me to drink. I poured the other half into a sippy cup, opened up one of those take-along flavored pouches you shake into bottled water (hard to describe & not use a brand name)and used about half the pouch to flavor his ACVwater in the sippy cup. I did this a few times, maybe every 2 hours, each time using less flavor to make sure he was getting the ACV. It's been about 4 hours and neither of us has gone to the bathroom. It may be early but I'm gona call it and say this remedy actually worked.

Apple Cider Vinegar, stomach issues: I was feeling horrible, my sinuses were so bad i could not breath, and to top it off i had horrible stomach problems, not diarrhea, but very close to it. anything i would eat would cause me to go to the restroom. I have tried ACV before, and i am a believer in it, but i was amazed that despite taking pepto bismol and immodiam ad, ACV finally gave me relief. after being stuck at home for 2 days i was able to go out to watch a basketball game, go out to a nice dinner (couldnt eat much but at least i was not running to the restroom). I am going back onto a ACV regimen, trying it out again has made me a believer again.

Just to let you know this is a GREAT site. I have recommended it to lots of people who are having ailments which I believe can be helped by natural remedies.

I work in a long term care facility and am exposed to a lot of germs. I drink a Tablespoon of ACV & Honey in water daily and believe this keeps my immune system up. While a horrid stomach & diarrea bug had the place quarantined, (Knock on wood) I escaped this bug which I give credit to the ACV/Honey.

My co-workers tease me about my attention to "natural" eating, etc, but I try to avoid processed foods, drink lots lots of water. Thanks so much for this site.

OK, so call me skeptical. I have been having diarrhea for over 6 days and a sharp pain behind my belly button for a while. I was becoming raw and felt sick every time I needed to go (which was often). I sipped a hot cup of black chai tea mixed with 2 tablespoons of regular ACV (not organic, just generic) and to my surprise everything went away. No joke! The sharp pain behind my belly button and the diarrhea stopped. It has been two days and its never returned! I was seriously considering going to the ER and Pepto was doing nothing for me. I never even took another dose of the ACV, just the one. Worked great!

I had sinus surgery and had to take a new mega antibiotic that gave me AAD. Associated Antibiotic Diarrhea. After 3 days of sitting on the toilet I was desperate and found your website at 10:15 at night. Within 36 hours of dosing, 2 TBL ACV in water (5 times total) I was completely done with that problem. I am AMAZED and a total convert. I will now be adding it to my daily regimen for my tummy problems. THANK YOU.

There has been a bad virus going around laying people up with diarrhea for two, three day straight. I got hit hard and fast last night. Couldn't sleep, of course, and found this site. Tried the ACV (two tablespoons in a coffee mug of warm water). Tossed and turned for twenty more minutes and then fell fast asleep and sleep good all night. Haven't had any since and today was Thanksgiving and I really over did it. So that is a testament to how well this works! Note: is very nasty going down the hatch, however. Great site, saved my holiday.

I tried the Apple Cider Vinegar in a last ditch effort after not having relief from several doses of Pepto. After researching the internet, I found this site and decided to try the ACV. My stomach stopped turning within about 15 minutes.

I took several doses of 2 tablespoons in 8 ounces of water. I did this for several days until I didn't have a weak stomach. I'm not sure if I should have taken it that often, but I did what I needed to. I've reccomended this to my co-workers who all think I'm crazy, but it works!

Thank you for posting, I'm so glad that I tried the ACV. (I've also read on this site that ACV will help to lose weight, if you use it sparinglty. I've not tried this, but thought I would share my new insight.) Thank you!

I've been a fan of earth clinic for almost 2 years now, and finally I can contribute to the feedback! About 3 hours ago I had horrible cramping in my belly. So I went to the bathroom, and lo and behold I had a bad case of diarrhea. I had to go a couple of times. However, I still didn't feel 100% after. So I started thinking about what I ate or if my dog being sick vomiting earlier had anything to do with it. Naturally, I went right here to look up remedies for diarrhea, and good old apple cider vinegar came up! I already had a bottle of organic ACV with the mother (I know.. don't mention labels.. lol), which I have been taking on and off for the last year and half. I took 2 tbls with a glass of water about an hour ago, and now I feel great! Where there was an uneasy feeling and gnawing pain in my lower abdomen, now is replaced by a relieving and soothing, almost cooling, sensation. And NO MORE DIARRHEA... WHAT A RELIEF!!! =D

Same problem as everyone else. I took 4 ACV tablets and the problem disappered in 4 hours. I realize the tablets probably won't give all of the benefits as the liquid does, but in this case, they work also.

After a holiday to Dominican Republic my daughter and I came down with diarrhea, for three days I was stationed in the loo. Lo and behold after searching for a natural cure I run across your website and decided to give ACV a try, instantly my stomach felt better and feel I am on the road to recovery...THX

I have had Diarrhea almost EVERY DAY for 6 weeks! The past week it had gotten so bad that I went to the ER twice for dehydration. I couldn't stop the diarrhea. The last bout was 12 times in one day...that landed me in the ER. They were of no help on how to stop it so I did some research. (What the heck took me so long???) I tried the ACV remedy yesterday and NO MORE DIARRHEA!!! It works beautifully!!!

Tried the 4 tablespoons of vinegar to half cup of purified water; my stool has solidified since taking two cups of this ACV and took one again this morning. It burns a little going down but it's worth the results it offers. I was excited to see my stool texture improve and I'm going to keep doing it for a week to ensure remedy effectiveness. Thank you Earth Clinic:)!! I'm going to do this three times a day for a week.
