[YEA] Five years ago I started taking ibeprophen for a serious back problem. About 800mg a day. Three months later I started having pains that started below my breast bone and radiated up my throat, to my back, and up the right hand side of my neck and face. The only thing that stopped the pain was a spoon full of baking soda in an8oz. glass of water. I've tried the purple pill but still am suffering from time to time. I am now going to try the ACV with the Baking soda, before I eat to see if this will be an additional help? I have heard great things about this and at this point willing to try anything to keep from, the burning sensations, not being able to swallow, and throwing up in my sleep. Today I mixed the 1 teaspoon/ACV with 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 8oz. of water and was able to keep my food down. This is a Miracle!!

[YEA] I Was so happy to find your website-I was looking for a natural approach to upping my DHEA level as my test results showed very low-As I am 46 and entering into the change of life I was frustrated with my weight gain and came upon the stories of ACV-Well I started to take the 2tbl. ACV to 1/4 tsp of baking soda, with a dash of cayenne and a skirt of lemon in 1/2 cup warm water....what I didn't expect to experience immediately was that the pain associated by my 12 year bout with slipped ribs and vertebrae problems disappeared within 20 minutes-hopefully now my body can heal itself rather than trying to quiet the agonizing heat of inflammation-Alleluia, the journey has just begun, healing is indeed something we can all do for ourselves. I have spread the word and for those of you with daily pain...it is the easiest thing you can do- Thank you so much...pPosted by Joy (Cadillac, MI) on 07/09/2007
[YEA] For several days I was suffering from neck and head pain on the left side. I had pain in my left ear and eye. I tried the heating pad, self massage, and pain pills. Nothing helped. Woke up every morning to headache and pain. I couldn't turn my head without cringing. Finally this morning I took acv with baking soda and grape juice. I felt better almost immediately. My head pain is gone and my neck doesn't hurt. I can turn my head and there isn't any pain! Thank you for this website!Posted by Loranda (Long Pine, NE) on 01/16/2007
[YEA] I have been drinking three 20 oz. bottles of water with 1/8 tsp. baking soda and 2 T. ACV a day for a week. No more aches and pains. Haven't had a headache in a week. My hip, knees and shoulders ached daily before the ACV. My energy level is up also. And this isn't organic ACV, just the store brand. Looking for the organic, but having trouble finding any locally. But determined to find. Thanks for this website.Posted by Pain free (Oregon) on 11/10/2006
[YEA] Hello, here I am, and, still PAINFREE. The acv is wonderful, I love the baking soda in it, along with the honey, now using mineral water, no tap water, and it makes my mouth taste so sweet, and I noticed I do not feel that sourness in my tummy after the I drank it, 4 times. My tongue is also nice and naturally red, my lips too. I do not think it is all in my mind at all. Hear this: I wear glasses, bi focals, and I am able to read words now without them. Before I found this site, I could hardly see with the glasses on, and also, my walking balance was so bad, and I was so dizzy. When the pain came on so strong, and all that dizziness and falling, I knew it was time to go do research and get off of that drug for reflux. I had no clue it was going to help my breathing, but it did, so none of that problem either. No, not at all have I had to take any drugs for acid reflux (GERD), because it is not present. I drink it in the morning upon arising, before breakfast, lunch, dinner and before bedtime. My appetite is wonderful. The foods taste so great, I do not have to add spices at all. My stomach is digesting so well, I am eating my meals on time, and getting to bed on time. And, I do not have to baby sit the house anymore in the wee hours of the morning. The swelling is gone in my neck and my tummy. I do not have to take any allergy or cough medicines at all. So, since I feel so great, and am learning now all about natural foods to eat, and also to use as body cleansers and even cleanse around my home, and also, I found out that ants and weevils do not like baking soda, or boric acid, (Borax?) so that is nice to know. I am reading quite a bit on this site and doing my own research now, because now that my body feels great and clean, I do not want to dirty it up with any chemicals that are not natural.Replied by Donna

I've used ACV for about 2 months, and feel good. No weight loss, like I hoped, but aches and pains have gone away, and high energy throughout the day. I usually mix about a week's worth in water bottles and store in my fridge. I have never used baking soda, but want to start. Can I pre-mix the ACV and baking soda in water and store in my fridge, or will this cause one or the other to not be as effective? Thanks for your advice!
BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS (1) 100% Posted by Bill (Covina, Clifornia) on 04/25/2009
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] I've been on your ACV/Baking Soda for some time, and it has worked great for my psittacosis infection...better than any antibiotic I've been on, and I've been on 17! I'm having a problem though, the amount of salt seems to be building up and I'm having a hard time getting rid of it! The mucous I'm coughing up is actually burning and I'm not feeling too good. I'm getting intense muscle cramps, spasms and soreness which I believe is from electrolyte imbalance. I've been drinking a lot of water, about a gallon and it doesn't seem to be helping much. Is there something I'm doing wrong, like not enough vinegar, or something?

[SIDE EFFECTS] Hi, I tried 2tsp bicarb + 3TBsp ACV with water tonight. After about 15 mins I began to feel a little unwell. 45/1hr later I had aweful diarrhea. Once it had passed (literally) I felt OK again. This is the first time I have tried this remedy. Has anyone had a similar experience?
