I am 28 years old, and this summer I had my first experience w/ a swollen lymph node. I was told to drink hot tea w/ ginger root and a little pepper, and to gargle w/ warm salt water. While the tea was very soothing, there was no decrease in the swelling. After a few days of little improvement, I did some research and decided to try old faithful, Apple Cider Vinegar. They swelling in my throat decreased by half w/in minutes. Since then I have been reading about ACV and its helpful effects. The taste of it does not bother me at all, I love the tanginess, so I've never diluted it in water. I just take a shot out of the bottle. My question then, your website says to sip and not chug. Why? What difference does it make if I sip on it, or take it all at once? especially if I enjoy the taste. I am very curious. Thanks! Ariana
EC: We suggested sipping acv to keep the pH consistently alkaline. Only suggestions, nothing written in stone. Try chugging it and let us know!
