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?
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. Liv
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?

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. Slidefoot

I just wanted to say that if you take probiotics with the mothers apple cider vinegar it helps a great deal with acid in your stomach to settle down and your tummy will be able to handle the mothers apple cider vinegar. Its also great for your intestines and helps put good bacteria back into your body, which if we have too much bad bacteria it can make us extremely ill. I'm now trying the vinegar and pray that it does work. I to have been dizzy and have high blood pressure often and need to keep it under control. So will get back to let you know if it worked for me.
Can ACV and probiotics be taken together or would the ACV override the probiotics? Or can I take both as long as there is a space of time between the two? Currently I'm doing both with no ill effects I'm just wondering if one is canceling out the other or if they both are "doing their own thing" in harmony??? Thanx in advance for any input.

Is it okay to make up a 4L bottle of 1:3 ACV and water and store it in the fridge? Does keeping it in water have any negative effects? Quicker than measuring out a tbsp each time.

Okay, I'm reading various posts and I've come across the info that it is NOT supposed to be refrigerated. When I purchased the product, I was advised to refrigerate it. Now I won't, but since it's been in the cooler for this time, is it okay to do so? I won't have to throw it away will I? I love this stuff!! Also, I still haven't heard if it will destroy my enamal on my teeth. I'm trying not to drink too much of it, but I still worry.

I am a big fan of the site and consult it regularly for a variety of issues and have had success! For that, Thank you.
I am concerned about the recommendation of Apple Cider Vinegar for almost ever ailment in question. I did have success in treating myself with ACV but the frequency with which is appears as a remedy makes me wonder if the site is sponsored by _____ or something! haha. Just curious because I am considering using ACV in my hair and a daily routine but I am uncertain as to the objectivity of the site.
EC: Hi Zachary,
During Earth Clinic's first few years, we allowed brand names to be published on the site, not realizing the extent of fake product posts on the internet. Most of the feedback back then was about apple cider vinegar. Then we received an email much like yours in 2004 (or thereabouts), asking us if we were a front for the Bragg's company! It was a most excellent wake-up call and I am forever grateful for it. Shortly thereafter, all but a few product names were banned from the site. Bragg was the first brand name to be deleted from the site. Tis true, there are now thousands upon thousands of Apple Cider Vinegar posts on the site. However, most ACV posts arrive from different ip addresses from around the world, which is why we think most (hopefully all) are legitimate posts.

Just curious how long after drinking ACV is it safe to take other medications to get the full effect? Thanks!
im a patient of DVT and PE (twice) and im on blood thinners to maintain an adequate INR value. as most patients will know that green vegetable can lower the INR value due to the Vitamin K content in them but ACV does the same.
im an ardent fan of ACV since 1994 and have been using it regularly but have had to stop using it after getting DVT. i have monitored my blood INR before and after having acv many a times and every time just after having it for 4 days my blood INR dropped to 1.2 when the i should be between 2 - 3.
in other words avc tends to clot the blood so dvt, pe and all other patients PLEASE DO NOT HAVE ACV while on blood thinning medication.
im bitterly missing acv since i know how wonderful it is for so many problems.
hope this helps
DVT = Deep Vein Thrombosis
PE = Pulmonary Edema
INR = International Normalized Ratio (for blood clotting time)
Sir / Madam,
i dont have feedbacks yet because i have not taken yet the ACV, i have a bottle at home, and i wanted to take for my illness that i have had now. Would it be OK to take if i am ANEMIC and w/ BLOOD SUGAR problem.
Please help me, i urgently and badly need your heartfelt advise. I thank you
Is there any danger in taking the acv if you are on blood thinners? I've told my sister about acv, and she wants to give it to her husband, but we aren't sure if he's on blood thinners, but until we find out we don't want to take a chance until we know for sure.

[YEA] I started soaking both feet and toes in about 1 inch of straight apple cider vinegar in a pyrex casserole dish (the same one I use for the magnesium oil soak) a few days ago to treat nail fungus and severe cracks in my heels, which I suspect to also be fungus related. Well, it seems soaking is a great way to get the benefits of acv without drinking it! You know the rosy, healthy glow you get after drinking apple cider vinegar in water? Well, it's happening after soaking. Also a great increase in energy. Too soon to say if I am losing weight with the soak.
I was finding that drinking apple cider vinegar lowered my blood sugar levels drastically at times, making me feel faint, but have not had any side effects from soaking thus far. The blood sugar reaction from ACV is a new thing. I had been drinking it regularly for many years before that without any problems.
I am using the organic brand of acv right now, even though you can buy a gallon of regular grocery store acv for the same price. I am thinking about ordering organic acv in bulk, since it takes up almost half a bottle of organic acv to fill the small dish with enough liquid to cover my toes. I must admit, right now I am re-using the acv a few times, otherwise it just isn't cost effective. But yes, I wash my feet before soaking them!
Sorry to say that I have had cracked heels for 11 years now (coincides with when I started training at the dojo). Only recently did it move into toenail fungus. Getting rid of it once and for all is long-overdue. Bad idea to have a fungal infection lingering on for years and years. I am determined to keep this up for months if necessary.

Do you know if I can get the Organic ACV in tablet form? If so, would it be just as beneficial?
