I tried Apple Cider Vinegar for my allergies but it did not work at all. I had the recommended amount but I had no results, in fact my allergies are worse now :(. Maybe it's just one of those things that doesn't work for me.

I'm allergic to everything under the sun pretty much and have had to take medications all my life for it. Nothing has ever worked and so I have to function in a constant zombie like state because I'm really sensative to the medication and still on the bad days I don't sleep and can't do anything because of the nonstop sneezing. I remembered this site from a while ago and tried the ACV and the honey.

What I did:
Twice a day -
1) I mix 2 tablespoons of all natural ACV into about 6-8 ounces of all natural apple juice (I use the apple juice as a remedy for my asthma already), the apple juice makes the taste easier to drink and makes for less burning of the throat. If you're having an allergy attack, your throat is raw from all the sneezing and the ACV can sting a bit, using the apple juice really helps.
2) I spread a tiny bit of peanut butter on a slice of wheat bread and then spread 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of honey (not local) and eat that. I do this to a) help kill the taste of the ACV and b) to avoid the upset stomach feeling that can happen when you swallow that much honey by itself. If you're allergic to peanuts, use a jam or the bread alone.

My results:
I started it the night (late at night) of a very bad allergy attack that had been going on for 2 days, within one hour I wasn't "cured" but I could breathe and wasn't sneezing as much. That night I slept with no problems and did not take any further allergy medicines. It has been a week and a day since then and I've been following the above routine the entire time without taking a single pill. I can now go out and not get sick for 3 days afterwards, which used to happen everytime I left the house. I have severe allergies and the ACV and honey have worked wonders for me even when the air quality is really bad.

Added benefits:
Since starting with the ACV - I have lost 2 pounds and a few inches from my waistline. And my Psoriasis is flaring up less severely (I also treat with ACV on the skin for this). Acne is no longer! And scares I have had for a while as well as new ones are lighter. Plus my skin over all is more even toned.

Asthma Benefit: I drink about 2 glasses of apple juice a day to help prevent asthma attacks and general asthma issues for my severe asthma. Since adding the ACV I find that the benefit works even better and I can breathe clearer and use my inhalor less.

Ive always had a dry nose, but it never really bothered me. Then at the beginning of the spring I developed awful allergies. In New Mexico we have some of the highest pollen rates in the US. I was sleeping about 12 hours a day and was constantly nauseous for 2 weeks. I thought I was just really sick and since I don't have insurance I went to my college health clinic and was told it was allergies. They told me to get some over the counter drugs to fix this. And since I'm cheap I decided to do some research. I found earth clinic and tried ACV. Two days later no allergies. I was amazed of how well it worked and suggested it to a few of my co- workers who also loved it. At first I tried the heinz which worked and later on decided to opt for Brag. Now I only take it about every 2 weeks. Thanks Earth clinc for keeping me off drugs.

For the past few years I have had both indoor and outdoor allergies that have seemed to become progressively worse. Over-the-counter drugs did little if anything to alleviate my symptoms. I eventually went to an allergist who prescribed various medications; none of these had any positive effects lasting more than a day. I have been drinking 2 tbspns of ACV mixed with about 1 cup water once roughly every day. I would estimate that this has reduced my symptoms by about half. Today I am beginning to up my intake to two drinks a day and monitor the effects. THANKS!!

Allergies: I have been on Claritin then Arieus for a 5 of years now. I found that Arieus to be weakening so I wanted to try alternative remedies as I don't like the "steroid" nasal sprays. ACV seems to to work so far as I have not used any drugs yet since mid March. I have only tried 1/2 to 1 table spoon with 1/2 tbl spoon of honey in warm water. (Used 1/2 cup of cold to mix with ACV then 1/2 cup of boiling to melt honey, then mix to get "warm" drink) I have not used baking soda yet as I am still not adventurous about a chemical reaction happening in my stomach that is not normal. I found a side benefit of ACV usage is it suppresses the onset of a cold and I have not been sick due to cold or flu yet. I know the cold is there but it is not going into full swing. I also use a straw to prevent the ACV corrupting teeth so thanks to a poster for that. (always good to read all comments) I will try this remedy for a year and report back in 10 months.

I suffer from severe seasonal allergies/rhinitis. I've been to the doctor and have taken numerous meds and tried different nose sprays. I gave up on them and tried the ACV and water tonic, drinking it 3 times a day. I have never felt better. Very little sneezing, no achy sinuses, no more sore throat and more energy! I was so skeptical of this stuff and the taste is definitely not my favorite. However, I feel better than I did when taking what the doctor prescribed. It sounded too good to be true, but in this case, it's wonderful and IT WORKS! Thank you Earth Clinic for your wealth of knowledge on a simple household product.

I have been using 1 Tblspn ACV in 4 oz water (no honey) for over 2 years now, and I haven't had to take any allergy medications,my hot flashes eased within days, and my skin does not look like that of a 50 year old woman who literally baked in the sun her entire life (smooth and no wrinkles) :)

Well, I must say this remedy fell far short of what I was expecting from other users reviews. I had tried using it at 2tbs, 3x a day for a week. When that failed to alleviate my allergies, I increased it to double that, 2tbs 6x a day. I took that dose for yet another week, and it still failed to alleviate my allergies in the least bit in any way whatsoever. Though it may depend on what your allergies are specifically, I can tell you that for mine, this remedy was ineffective.

I tried ACV, 2 Tbl in juice, plus 1 Tbl honey. I did this 3X a day. I did it for a whole month. It didn't help allergies, overall energy or weight loss. It also did nothing for my kids' health. It may have improved my complexion. I do use it externally on my face as well, and that does seem to help some. It may help keep me somewhat healthier as far as communicable diseases go. I haven't caught the kids' myriad colds, flu, etc. But that may be due to echinacea, oil pulling, cold showers, or healthier eating!

Every late summer, I suffer from Ragweed allergies. doctors could not give me any relief. Moving to Alaska helped alot, however, when visiting Florida in October, I had difficulty breathing from all the sneezing and wheezing. I then read your article and tried the ACV. The next day I was 100% fine. I went off it just to test and sure enough I began to get stuffed up again. I then took the ACV and later that evening I was again 100%. Thanks. Got anything that can grow hair on my head?

I am amazed at how acv cleared up my allergies. I have suffered with bad sinus problems for years and have taken every over the counter and prescription drugs made. ACV worked it just a few days and I only had 1 headache.

I have tried Remedy #1. I would have to say that I really wasn't expecting much, but to my amazement, the ACV helped much more than I would have ever anticipated. ACV hasn't taken my allergies away, but it has helped alleviate a lot of the symptoms. Thank you for having this site.

I am a 29 year old male, who has had nasal allergies since the age of 5. My mother told me a long time ago to give Apple Cider Vinegar a try, but I never believed that it would work. I have been on nasal allergy medications for years, and about two weeks ago, I just got fed up with pumping all of these chemicals into my body. I decided to seek a natural solution, that's when I ran across your website, and read about the Apple Cider Vinegar solution that my mother told me about. I cannot believe the results. Apple Cider completely eliminates my allergies, and it costs much less than what I used to pay for my nasal allergy medications. Doctors are trained nowadays to prescribe their patients non-natural medications, although there are many natural solutions to a lot of illnesses. Just think of it, how did people cope with illnesses prior to giant drug companies? They used natural remedies.

After finding this site, I decided to try it for my allergies. My Doctor had suggested allergy shots and recommended I carry around an Epipen because my allergies are all so severe and I am allergic to just about everything. I had nothing to loose and everything to gain. WOW! is all I can say. I am pleased to say that since I have been taking it - I am now allergy free as long as I remain taking 4oz of water and 2 tblsp of ACV twice a day. My allergist even asked me not to tell too many people about my new discovery as it would put her out of business - as I was completely symptom free when I went for a check up
