The reason ACV works is because it is antifungal. I would also say that if you checked your PH it is probably way too low. It should be about 7.4 alkaline. Disease grows in an acid environment.
EC: Sorry, no idea what post you are referring to!

I have read that apple cider vinegar by nature of fermentation, creates acetic acid which can potentially damage the kidneys when consumed. Is this true? We drink ACV daily at our house and so do our young children for many ACV health benefits. But I am concerned about the health of their kidneys in the long term from drinking ACV. Is there a maximum dose to take if this is the case? Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks.Posted by Kim (Winter Garden, Florida) on 09/26/2009
Every morning I start my day with 2 Tbsp of ACV in a small glass with 1/2 tsp local honey and a splash of Apple juice. I feel great and I drink it all at once, it is fine to me. My question is... I have a 9 year old daughter and am wondering if it is ok for me to start her on ACV I am thinking maybe 1 Tbsp for her and more apple juice... any thoughts?Posted by Lyvia (Dumaguete, Philippines) on 07/21/2011
Thank you so much for this amazing information about ACV and I started using it. But this one thing I observed: When dilute ACV with water and no honey, the taste is quite bad but because it's good for the body, I take it... I also tried of putting it with honey or sometimes a bought an already mixed with honey, but it made my stomach acidic... Is it true that any acetic will become acidic when mixed with sugar or any form of sugar?Posted by Liv (Redondo Beach, California) on 03/06/2011
For Catherine - If you feel a burning in your body after drink this beverage, make sure you've eaten first. Some of us are very sensitive, also what I do is take an herb called Slippery elm to coat my stomach first it also helps ulcers. Or I use flaxseed oil in my food, just a teaspoon, it really helps my digestion and coats my stomach before I attempt to drink any strong beverage. I warm a cup of water, put 2 teaspoons of honey , then one tablespoon of vinegar and stir. It's very pleasant this way, and my family has been drinking it this way for years. Good luck to you and everyone else, its really a great potassium drink. LivPosted by Rsvp2244 (Cuyahoga Falls, Oh) on 12/17/2010
I take 1 tsp ACV and 1 tsp honey daily. I do not add water, just mix the two and down it goes. Could this be hurting me in some way?Replied by Ree

I have a hard time drinking apple cider vinegar. Is it OK if I add honey to take the tartness out of it? If not I'll do my best to drink it. I have been on blood pressure meds for 20 some years. Same meds and I am having trouble keeping it down. I am under a lot of stress right now and it doesn't help. Please let me know. I am a female and 71. Thank you. SlidefootReplied by Lily
