I have tried many of the recipies posted here and by far the best is to mix the Apple Cider Vinegar with apple juice. Having said that I still can't stand the taste. I had to stop because it was just too hard for me to drink. It has been almost a week and I can still taste it in my mouth. All my food tastes funny and I have a rotton taste in my mouth all the time. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone have any suggestions to get my taste buds back to normal?

I read on this website also, that applying the Apple Cider Vinegar to the underarms helps control body odor. I also read that you rinse but do NOT use soap. Can anyone tell me why that is? This stuff is so stinky to me....

Thank you friends for any information you may have to help. :-)

Could you tell me, if the ph of a good apple cider is 2.5 or so, then how can this be good for trying to keep you PH level alkaline, what happens internally for this to be able to happen.

Thank you, Gary

I recently got a physical and showed I had raised triglycerides everything else was fine. So I started first to change my diet then I wanted to begin Apple cider vinegar cure Ted speaks of. 2 tablespoons of Acv(Organic) 1/4 teaspoon of Baking soda in a glass of water. I've only been doing this in the morings for now along with good eating habits. I'm on my 2nd week of this treatment and feel like my stomach stays very warm all day. Its starting to bother me somewhat. Feels like acid reflux or heartburn setting in... any advice will help.

thank you in advance!!!

Im new at this. Just started using the ACV yesterday. I am confused about the baking soda. I would think that would aggravate the stomach if taken every day. I'd like to see what answers you get to your question and what the need for the baking soda is?? I started taking a ACV pill everyday and also drinking the 2 tsp of ACV in water and sipping on that throughout the day.

Adding baking soda to the ACV will for the most part neutralise the acid. The warm feeling in your stomach may be the fact that the food is not digesting properly and is sitting in your stomach. I know a lot of people take these together but I don't agree with it. Acid reflux is caused by too little acid not too much acid in your stomach.

Try the ACV without baking soda.

Hi Chegui69

Even when I tried the ACV with soda remedy I also experienced ths acid reflux. So I stopped taking it. Any advice from other members will be a great help.

Hello Peggy, Debbie and Angel,

Well its been a couple days from the post and I've tried Zantac, Mylanta and herb teas... It seems to return later in the day. I should also add when added this post I was going through some tough anxiety and panic attacks ive havent had in years and I'm sure that added acid into my stomach that was not needed. When I would hit my panics attacks I could feel the butterflies in my stomach and perhaps acid building up. At this point I'm getting kinda worried.

Chegul69 maybe try digestive enzymes to see if it is undigested food causing problems. You may have food fermenting in your stomach not digesting.

Also anxiety, panic attacks may be caused by B3/Niacin deficiency.

In reply to Angel from Dubai regarding acid reflux. I was going through the worst of my life and tried drinking green tea with ACV. It made it a hundred times worse. So a friend of mine told me to drink plain hot water with nothing in it cause it washes the acid down. Sip on the hottest water you can. I tried this remedy and within 1/2 hour the acid reflux was totally gone. Don't eat anything right away and if it doesn't work have a second cup.

[YEA]  It keeps Amazing me, how many people do not know the Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar.. A tenant of mine gave me a Jarvis book in 1994.. I read that book to become healthier.. It opened my eyes.. To Better Health for pennies per day.. I have been promoting ACV ever since.

The ACV book that Deirdre published has been a big help.. I work close with a Temple in Thailand were I now am semi retired. , . Yes, promoting ACV.. But I think that everyone should read up on ACV.. I ordered 9 ACV Deirdre's book to be sent to the Temple for their Library.. I also Had Amazon send 9 of Jarvis book.. Then I contacted the BEST Organic Apple cider people in USA (I think better then _____s) They will be sending 55 gal. Drum to this Thai Temple.. Who will be distributing it in Thailand.. Just bring in your container. We will fill it up with Health for you and your loved ones.

I hope that this letter gets printed.. So many I have sent, never gets to your eyes..

Much Love and caring, Alfred

This may seem like an odd question but I suffer from seasonal allergy. I always smell this foul smell in my nose. Other people can smell it too, its not bad breath but due to allergies. I read about mixing apple cider vinegar with water and dipping cotton ball and putting it in your nose, by inhaling that, the smell would go away. But my question is, is it safe to inhale vinegar directly? Please help.

I think its important to note that when I'm reading articles or opinions on ACV that it is not clear that individuals are aware that ACV stands for Raw unfiltered unpasteurised Apple Cider Vinegar, (containing Mother) which is quite different to Apple Cider vinegar in the supermarkets.

Please ensure that readers are aware of this difference. Regards

Hello there, I am a big fan of natural medicine vs. conventinal and have just started to drink the ACV in water mixture for what I believe is a stomach ulcer along with poor digestion in general. I just had a small amount of it to try it out, and I felt a little bit of discomfort/burning, but nothing unbearable. Once it calmed down a little though, I did notice I felt more energized and had a more uplifting mood and I just felt a lot better in general, it was amazing! I'm not sure if this was unrelated or a placebo effect, but I did feel a whole lot better in a matter of minutes after drinking it.

I was just curious, the instructions state to drink it 3 times a day before meals, but is there a problem with drinking it during or after meals? Or before bed time?

And also, does ACV help regulate blood pressure or does it just lower it? I do experience low blood pressure/arrythmias at times and I wouldn't want to cause any harm in that sense.
Thank you!

Hi I was just wondering does it matter if it's distilled apple cider vinegar or does it have to be regular? Or is organic better? and the _____'s brand is that at whole foods or at a local store you can buy from?

Would someone please explain why apple cider vinegar should be better for the health than apples?

Replied by Debbie

Beth, one reason why ACV is good for you (I wouldn't say apples are bad) is that it is a fermented product which means it adds back good bacteria into the intestines. Many people nowdays have bad digestion because of antibiotics killing off the good bacteria in the stomach.

[YEA]  On our apple ranch, we decided to make apple cider vinegar. A neaerby wine company also made brandy; and they had a warehouse of barrels filled with fermenting wine. I bought an old brandy barrel from them and poured in the apple juice. We were told it would take about a year to ferment, but the mother formed in about two months on the top, about 3 inches thick. The vinegar was ready in about 5 months. This was the best cider vinegar I have ever tasted, almost like a flavored drink with a little bite to it. I think the old brandy barrel flavor made the process faster. No alcohol, just raw apple cider vinegar.

In 8 oz glass of water put 2 tbs ACV and 1 tbs of honey. Tastes pretty good!

Hello everyone, I want to combine ACV, BSM, honey, coconut oil, for a tonic, to be used during the day. Is there any problem with that? Thanks.

Hi, I have just started to take Apple Cider Vinegar and i'am a bit confussed on what brand to buy, how much to take daily, should I drink it thru out the day instead of 3 times a day before meals, when should I brush my teeth after I take Apple Cider Vinegar, by avoiding the teeth as I take it would that help? I really want to find the best plan daily to take this to help with weight loss, hair loss, aches and joint and muscle pain but mostly to keep my ph balanced. I have been using Heinz acv, about 6 tablespoons a day. Thx John
