2 tsp ACV & 1/4 tsp BS -2 times a day - with a little excercise (very slow jogging) has dropped my weight (12 lbs. so far) & dropped blood preasure down to 137/75 (was 156/95). I've been on this regiment for about 3 weeks and feel absolutely great. My doctor wanted to put me on blood preasure pills and cholesterol pills, it just scared the H--- out of me - I had to do something other than DRUGS. In my searching, I discovered a website that offered a FREE discount drug card because I can not afford medical coverage, if I had to do the drugs, this would have been an alternative. (you can Email me if you want the site). I also have gotten my wife started on this for her alergies (she likes the Claritin D, I gotta get her off that stuff! My son 21yo, who has this deep hacking cough (I believe is fungal), can not be diagnosed by the 4 doctors I've sent him to, guess what he's going to start doing - you got it, ACV & BS. I can't wait to see the look on my doctor's face when he sees the results - Thank you everyone for your comments and personal caring about other people, it's very refreshing to know others do care.

I would be VERY interested in getting the website you mentioned on Earth Clinic back on 4/10/2009 that offered a FREE discount drug card. I know that has been some time ago. However, if you could provide me with this information, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks! From one folk remedy healer to another...

You were asking for a free prescription card... this site: has a card you can print out, no restrictions as to age, income, anything. This is sponsored by United Way. There are hundreds of perticipitating pharmacies... Most of the major one and can print out them at the site. The card expires 12/31/12. We had a rep from United Way come to my husbands work and hand out cards. I often have the pharmacy compare to see where I will save the most money on my meds... often this card was better than my own insurance card.

Save an average of up to 30% or more off of prescription drugs, with the highest savings on generic drugs.

Please pass this info on as I was in line at a right aid and a man was nearly crying at the cost of meds and I walked to the window and handed him the card I had and they gave him over 20% off. I even asked Rite Aid why they don't tell people about it, they even had some cards on hand, I never got a good answer, maybe they can't unless someone ask's first.

Remedy: Apple cider venigar and baking soda. Ailment: weight loss and blood ph. I am senior who has been using ACV off and on for years, but did not attribute it to anything particular, even though people commented on my skin, I thought that I was just blessed;' however, six months ago, I saw an article on the wonders of ACV and baking soda, and thought that I would try the mixture (which I drank through a straw three times a day, to protect my teeth from the acid), in combination with a daily exercise program, (bally total fitness twister), for weight loss, also to alkalize my blood ph. Well in no time at all, (1 month), I lost those stubborn five pounds that I had been struggling with, and my ph went from 8.0 to 6.8. Hope this helps those who are concerned about their weight and teeth. Blanche.

You don't need that straw if you totally neutralise the ACV as it is not acid any more ie: after the mixture stops fizzing and most or all of the BS has disappeared.

If you used a 5% acid mixture then it might be a wise thing, but throw that straw away as it is unnecessary.

I just want to tell you that the applecider vinegar and baking soda really works great! I have lost 20 pounds in a little over two months! My mother runs an herbal store and constantly has to order B___'s Apple Cider Vinegar! My father-in-law, could hardly get out of bed, and when he did he was in a wheel chair most of the time, but he started the ACV and baking soda and has lost 2 shirt sizes, out mowing grass, and his diabetes is getting under contro! Had a lady today tell me that she is feeling so much better as far as energy and that she is loosing weight in abdominal area. Will keep you posted. Dee

The malic acid and the acetate is what gives the apple cider vinegar people the energy. The baking soda is what restores the bicarbonate deficiency where a more alkalized body will increase the oxygen in the body giving the body more energy and hence weight loss is synergistic with both of these. What most people won't know is the baking soda and the apple cider vinegar has a strongly negative Oxidation Reduction Potential, which means it is also an antioxidant.
