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

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 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 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.

Hi. I also drank a vinegar tea when osteoarthritis nodules first started to show on the joints of some of my finger tips. The nodules shrank and haven't returned to the same size. I switched to drinking distilled water with a little lemon juice and no sweetener throughout the day and upped my intake of minerals because I found it to be a more pleasant substitute. I still was puzzled as to why I would wake up some mornings with red and achy finger joints unrelated to work.

On the advice of a Doctor of Functional Medicine, I started an elimination diet and found that when I ate sugar or gluten, the inflammation would kick in again. This is not to say I'm cured. Sometimes I get carried away in the garden and suffer the consequences. I've read that arthritis can be a bit of a blessing in that even though it is caused by overuse, it can reveal an autoimmune problem. I do wish you success in finding out the source of your inflamation.

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 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.

I recommended ACV (American Garden), which was easily available in Mantri Mall, Sampige Road, Bangalore-560003, to be taken with Honey, in 3:1 ratio (15ml of ACV and 1ml of Honey plus 100ml water). This has given some good improvement in Knee Joint condition, after 3 weeks' treatment.

I feel however that Organic Unfiltered Unpasturated ACV ( so-called 'Mother'grade) will work much better and faster to give good results.

I want to know where this particular ACV (any brand) is available in Bangalore.

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'd like to post a photo, taken of my hand about 9 days ago and a current one for you to see the major difference that has taken place already.

I was out of apple cider vinegar, but I had a really vinegary bottle of kombucha in the fridge (which I keep to seed new batches of kombucha) so I started with that. 2 tablespoons kombucha, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon ginger, 1 teaspoon borax (after reading about the apples and borax on your site) but it was very sweet so I changed to 6 tablespoons kombucha. (now this is really yummy! ) I make it in the morning and drink it before mealtimes together with 3 capsules of odourless garlic. The last 3 days I am using 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar 1 tablespoon honey, 1 teaspoon ginger, 1 teaspoon borax, it is much more sour than the kombucha mixture so I dilute it with some kombucha and still take it 3 times a day with the 3 garlic capsules before mealtimes.

I also take biochemic tissue salt no 10 - Nat Phos - 2 tablets under the tongue - about 6 times a day.

An acid alkaline food table is pasted in the kitchen and I try to eat as many foods from the alkaline side as possible.

I have RA. After briefly trying out some of the BigPharma offerings, I started taking ACV with honey. I take 2 tablespoons of ACV with 2 teaspoons of good local honey and a bit of hot water every morning on an empty stomach. Sometimes I do an additional dose in the evening. While I still have some swelling in the joints hardest hit by the RA, I have no pain. None at all. As a wonderful side effect, I also stay remarkably healthy while those around me suffer from colds, flu, etc.

Another good remedy for inflammation in the body is Turmeric. Since I do not care for the taste, I buy empty gelatin capsules from my local healthfood store and fill them myself. Be sure to wear gloves if you try this because the Turmeric will stain anything it touches yellow. I take about 2 teaspoons of Turmeric a day this way.

As far as weight loss - I'm perimenopausal at this time in my life and am fighting that belly bulge myself. Acai berry and Pilates seem to work the best for me. I take 1 teaspoon of Acai (powder that I put in capsules) each day and make myself hit the floor for Pilates several times a week.
