I have been using apple cider vinegar for weight loss and high blood pressure, along with watching what i eat and exercise. It seems to be helping with the weight loss -- lost 15lbs in 6 months. I also have type two diabetes and my sugar seems to be under control. The doctor said it's borderline and no cholesterol problems. I will continue using the ACV.
I had been taking apple cider vinegar and then stopped for a while and have just started back. I put a little honey in with my water to make it taste better. I have so much energy when I take it on a regular basis. I can really tell the difference when I don't take it all the time, and people say my skin looks more healthy.
I've been taking 2 tbs. of ACV in a glass of water 3 times a day-(first drink of the morning/ mid-day/ then last drink of the day before bed)for a year now. I FEEL BETTER/I HAVE MORE ENERGY/I SLEEP BETTER. AFTER BURNING MY THUMB BADLY ON THE OVEN ONCE I SOAKED IT IN ACV FOR AFEW MINUTES AND THE SEVERE PAIN STOPPED IMMEDIATELY!- WITHIN AN HOUR I COMPLETELY FORGOT I EVEN BURNED MYSELF-I COULDNT FEEL A THING!- AND NO SCAR!// IT HAS CURED POISON IVY EVERY TIME! I JUST APPLIED LIBERAL AMOUNTS OF 100% ACV TO THE AFFECTED AREA WHENEVER IT STARTED TO ITCH AND IT STOPPED THE ITCHING AND CLEARED IT UP IN NO TIME! SAME THING FOR ATHLETES FEET! A TBS. OF 100% ACV INTO THE EARS AFTER LETTING IT IN FOR 5-10 MINUTES AND THEN TILTING HEAD TO EMPTY DISSOLVES BUILTUP. CUTS, SCRAPES, BRUISES, INSECT BITES HEAL TWICE AS FAST AND LESSON OR COMPLETELY STOP THE PAIN BY SIMPLY APPLYING 100% ACV LIBERALLY TOTHE DAMAGED AREA AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND AFEW TIMES A DAY THEREAFTER UNTIL ITS HEALED. ALSO 100% ACV USED ON YOUR HANDS WILL WORK BETTER THAN ANY MOISTURIZER. I ACTUALLY FIND MY TEETH ARE GETTING WHITER.
I have been taking a combination of apple cider vinegar and honey for the past 20 years or so. I am now 66 years old. I believe that this combination has helped me cure many different I have had over the years. I had athletes foot at one time. Even though the doctor said I would always have the problem, once I took ACV the problem went completely away. Twice I have had the problem of tenis elbow and after taking ACV the problem went away. This combination cured me from hangovers. I very seldom have a cold and have never had the flu since taking ACV. I feel healthy when taking ACV.
Hi, Sifted, sterile wood ashes would help cut the acid some in drinking vinegar or lemon water. Wood ashes from trees, not lumber from the store, is full of minerals and is highly alkaline. Would this render the vinegar less potent? I don't know, but I think not. But for sure it would make it non damaging for the teeth. Lemon juice, the fresh squeezed kind of course is tough on tooth enamel as well. Wood ashes were used a hundred years back on farms as a mineral supplement and anthemelic (kills parasites) for livestock. It was mixed with sulfur and salt. I have used the wood ashes for the last month and never have acidity. Something I am prone to. A teaspoon per gallon of water is what I use.
I happened upon this site by "accident." Actually, I think it was more of a "Divine intervention" because I have found SO much on this site that has been extremely helpful. Apple Cider Vinegar - I will ALWAYS make sure to have some on hand and will probably have a little each day from now on. Just a small amount-about a tbsp. in a glass of water has relieved PMS, sinusitis and a headache in less than minutes! THANK YOU!
I have been searching on the web for a site that promotes cleaning you meat with apple cider vinegar. This was a tradition in my family for at least 4-5 generations. I believe that a couple of capsulefuls won't hurt and gets all of that sticky, greasy, and nasty film of off meats like: steaks, poultry, porkchops, ribs etc. except for ground or chop meat. Ground beef or chopmeat is probably the only meat that I wouldn't suggest cleaning with vinegar just because of the type of meat that it is. I believe that apple cider vinegar minimizes alot of the bacteria found in our meat. Katie.
I have been using 2 tablespoons of organic ACV in water every morning for the past 2 years. It has been life changing and people very often asked me what I'm doing. I am 43 years old and I feel like this health tonic is as good for your insides as it is your outsides.
It has helped me with all of my minor health ailments.
I have suffered with bleeding ulcers as a result of a hiated hernia. It has cured my acid reflux. It has also lowered my blood pressure. It has helped with my anxiety. It has kept my weight the same. (I'm a healthy weight for me, 130pounds). It helps keep my skin youthful and I haven't gotten sick. No colds, no flu.
Acv is the fountain of youth. And a very potent health tonic. I highly recommend it.

had fungal toe for years, could not take the huge green pill, so tried ACV and have been free of the fungus for 10 years. I stopped taking ACV and within a week the fungus was back, so now I take a shot in the morning and at night.

apple cider vinegar cures nausea, seasickness and hangovers!

I take two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to 8oz of water every other day and I have noticed a STRONG difference in my body. I developed "nummular eczema" on my legs over three years ago which prevents me from shaving from the knees down. My legs were constantly breaking out and the bumps would flare if i went to a dry city keeping me awake all night in itchy pain. Lotion, baby oils, topical medicated creams, you name it, I used it. But since I've been using raw ACV I no longer suffer from blotchy red bumps on my legs and am free to shave every day!! It's absolutely amazing and something that three different doctors couldn't cure or even treat. The mild detoxification that the ACV did was truly remarkable and will continue using it for the rest of my life!

Try drinking apple cider vinegar twice daily after your meal. I drink 4 to 6 teaspoons diluted with water and a bit of ice. It has made a huge difference in my life.

I have spinal stenosis and scoliosis and my back got so bad that I started limping. I had severe pain especially if I bent over. My back literally was killing me with pain. I was taking prescription naprosen (1000 mg/per day). That had little effect on the pain. I had arthritis in both index fingers, both shoulders and my back was full of it. I remembered that I had heard or read somewhere about ACV. I found this web site and read everything I could on ACV. I was so encouraged! I went out that day and bought a qt of organic ACV. The first time I took it I wondered how could I continue taking it. However the taste was not as bad as the pain I was going through. I quit taking the pain medication and just used ACV. I take about 3 ozs. to 4ozs a day in some water. After about 3 or 4 days, I noticed the pain throughout my body starting to subsiding. By the end of 2 weeks the pain was literally gone. I can bend over with no pain, hop around with no pain and play with my cat. No more NSAIDS, only ACV. I have been telling everyone I see about this MIRACLE CURE FOR PAIN. I hope I have encouraged someone sitting on the fence to try this. By the way, there are other benefits to taking ACV.
