HI U OLE PATOOTS, , , , , , , , , got a wild and strange story to pass on via the lady who cuts our hair.

She is 74 and took in her 98 year old aunt 3 years ago. The aunt has an attitude problem, but is healthy as a horse now at 101. The Aunt worked in a school cafeteria until she was 92 and quit to care for her ailing husband. She takes no medicines or supplements. She started drinking ACV and honey at age 17 and does not miss her morning dose regardless.

Our hair lady says her aunt has no arthritis and will probably out live her.

I thought the EC bunch would appreciate this tale.

I had painful knee Arthritis with swelling and stiffness everyday. I tried a Cortisone shot helped for a month only and knee surgery was out of the question. I was desperate for relief! All I did was search on the internet for help. I found an article on benefits of drinking Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. Since last Summer I drink 1 tablespoon with 6 oz. warm water everyday faithfully! I no longer suffer with pain or swelling my stiffness is very minimal to none. I am also not a big fan of taking OTC pain relievers and definitely no prescribed drugs!! Today I am a healthy pain free camper and feel healthier

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.

I've taken Apple Cider Vinegar for 30 years. Took a break for 2 or three years, I just always felt amazing. Lately, I've been super stiff. Joints, body, etc. Groaning when getting up, all that stuff. I started using Apple Cider Vinegar on my fish sticks and fries (I like salt and vinegar on fish and chips). I use like 6 or 7 cap fulls at a time on it. A couple capfuls per stick. Of course, after like 3 days of doing that, I'm magically, completely NOT stiff anymore.

I don't like drinking it in water, but I will. I prefer to just put it in a shot glass and shoot it if it's not on fish or french fries. ACV doesn't care if it's mixed with food. It's not picky. But wow, does it work.

I have horrible arthritis and within 2 1/2 weeks of starting the ACV, I have had no pain or symptoms since. It is a miracle.

I began getting arthritis in my fingers and feet about six months ago. I now take two teaspoons of ACV morning and night diluted in a glass of water. Gone, within a couple of days. If I slack off a day or two my limbs begin to seize up again. Brilliant.

I use 4 to 4.5 oz. of raw organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar to a gallon of filtered water with trace minerals added with a shot glass of stevia. I start with one gallon of apple cider vinegar that I add 2 table spoons of cinnamon and 3 or more table spoons of ginger. The ginger dissolves after a few days and what does not dissolves of the cinnamon settles to the bottom. From this I get the 4 oz. to add to the water. I consume about 3 or more gallons of this a week. Great PH balance beverage. The trace minerals added to the 6 gallons of water I consume per week three of which is apple cider vinager allows me to take 1100 to 1200 plus mg of magnesium per day with no side affects.

I suffer from water on the knee since I was 18 years old (now 34). My knees swell from time to time for a few days then I am back to normal again for a week or so. It subsided for many months in a row but has been back in recent years. The condition wasn't severe, just slightly uncomfortable. I started taking ACV with water for another issue but realized that my knees didn't swell anymore. I was completely fine as long as I drank ACV. However once I stop ACV the attacks come back and are much more severe to the point that I can't leave the house for 2-3 days. This never happened before. I never had to change my plans or rearrange my schedule because of this condition before. I am puzzled. I know if I take ACV I will be fine, but once I stop it's very scary. I don't know if I should continue. Does anyone here experience worsening of symptoms when they stop drinking vinegar? Thanks!

Been completely free of arthritis and rheumatism for over 38 years by taking ACV daily in my drinking water. I like the tart taste and do not use honey.

John GOD Bless

I've been taking Apple Cider Vinegar mixture with water and honey for a week now twice a day for arthritis in my hand and it seems the discomfort has intensified. Is that possible or have I not wait long enough for the ACV to actually work? Thanks for any comments.

I has Heberden's nodes at my finger joints and I've been on ACV for a year and they have all gone but one, and that has definitely reduced.

I pour a capful of Apple Cider Vinegar into a glass and put about three times that amount of water with it.. Then take a spoonfull of honey and keep it in the side of my mouth whilst sipping the Apple Cider Vinegar I let the honey go down with each sip.. I think the Apple Cider Vinegar and honey must go down together to get the full benifit, as the vinegar cracks the honey in the stomach.. I'm taking it morning and evening for the last eighteen months. I have one last nodule left on my right hand second finger but that might have been joint damage due to an accident and not a nodule. They were on most of my finger joints to some degree.

I must say that after trying the stuff out at earthclinic my health has never been better.. Just about all the agues of age have cleared up. After not seeing my daughter for about four months when I started on the Apple Cider Vinegar she said "My god you look like you have lost twenty years".. I must admit I feel it as well.. Im on other stuff as well.. I smoke and drink moderately.

I have concluded that the ACV tonic is working well for me. I quit drinking coffee and started drinking one cup of this tonic per day about 6 weeks ago and began to notice that the nodules on my finger joints appeared less inflamed and they also appeared to be smaller and that other joints were no longer hurting. Also, I have just felt so energetic. I had started oil pulling just a week prior, so I wasn't sure which remedy was helping with the arthritis. Then I stopped drinking the tonic for just the past 2 days and today the pain came back in some of my joints. I guess I have my answer! I am mixing 1 TBSP ACV with 1/8 tsp baking soda. Somewhere on this site, I read that men can use 1/4 tsp of baking soda. After all the fizzing is finished, I stir in hot water and a teaspoon of honey. Now that I'm sure it is working for me, I will start to experiment with some of the other ACV teas that posters have suggested. I would like to send my sincere thanks to Ted and to all who have recorded their stories for the benefit of all of us.

I am currently using cinnamon and raw apple cider vinegar for hip and knee arthritis. It has helped greatly though I have been using it about 10 days.

One thing many people don't know about over the counter pain relievers; when used for arthritis, they wind up, over time, destroying cartilage. So, you wind up needing joint replacements because the pain reliever you used to banish the pain, banished the pain and destroyed your cartilage.

A friend of mine was very succussful using raw apple cider vinegar to alleivate gout, also.

Hi to all those in the UK who are thinking of using ACV, it is absolutely amazeing! I am a 60 yr old RN and have had severe pain in my hips and lower back for 3 years, medics said it is because Im on my feet all day on the wards and gave me NSAIDs which were not effective and I would wake up in pain every morning and it was becoming so restrictive I'd even contemplated a double hip replacement. I then read about ACV on this site and gave it a go,WOW!! within 48 hours all the burning in my hips had gone! I could not believe it,even my wife noticed how fluently I was moving again, I use 2 tablespoons with honey twice a day, its even more effective with 72.5mgs Aspirin with my night time dose, Aspirin is a known anti inflammatory, I really cannot thank this site enough.As a person who has worked in the health profession for thirty years and put my complete trust in its remedy,s it is a real eye opener and has definately changed my opinions, Good luck everyone.
