I have been suffering from partial bowel obstruction from adhesions due to a liposuction that went bad back in the 90's. I have suffered from severe pain, nausea and hemerroids due to the inability to fully cleanse myself out because of the blockage. This has been on going for the past 5 years. I would have an "episode" at least once a week, sometimes 2 and 3 times a week. The pain was unbearable and would literally take my breath away. Since I started taking one shot of ACV daily I have yet to have an "episode". I now have the best movements in years! I am completely amazed! Also, I suffer or should I say used to suffer from arthritis in my hips. I have absolutely no pain at all now and I know it is from the ACV because I haven't done anything else to remedy. I wish someone would have told me about this a long time ago. It is the simpliest thing in the world to do and it is all natural! God Bless Apple Cider Vinegar! If you haven't tried it, YOU SHOULD! Also, my complexion is glowing!

I used to drink acv & honey 2 x a day and for some reason stopped. Started noticing a lot of pain in both elbows. Dr. said it was arthritis. Told me to stop lifting weights. I didn't completely stop, but did slow down. Started drinking the acv & honey 2 x a day again, for allergies. While looking at your website, it occured to me that I have not been having pain while lifting weights, even though I had increased the weight amount. I used to not be able to touch the bones on the sides of either elbow without it hurting...I just touched them and there is NO PAIN!! I really hadn't thought about the difference until I was reading your website. ACV & honey will be taken EVERY DAY...TWICE A DAY. Two capfuls of acv & 9 squirts of honey/2 tablespoons full. This stuff REALLY, REALLY, WORKS!!!

I just wanted to say I am truly amazed how ACV works for arthritis. I have little to no joint pain, since I have started taken the ACV cocktail, for two months now. I took pain medicine for years, with not half the benefit of ACV. Thanks so much for your site. It is a blessing. 1/4 cup acv 2oz of cranberry juice 8oz water. Two times a day.If it is to tart add some honey or apple juice it really is refreshing to drink. It really works...Good luck..

Well, this is my 4th day using vinegar in hopes of helping my arthritis. Wrote in last week saying I'd let you know how its going. I stand truly amazed. I don't even recognize my body. The aches thus far, are 99% gone. I literally can jump up out of a chair. What an absolute miracle. I am speechless. As for weight? Yes! I've noticed a bit of a change already. Will let you know more.

I read the articles on this site and started using acv with water. Right away the pain of arthritis went away! I had not been able to work, play or much of anything in over a year. I was getting worse by the day. I had not had a pain free day in over a year! After only one day, it eased up. After 3 days my pain was gone completely!!! I'm not joking here. Those of us with RA know how bad the pain is. I had to stop taking Celebrex because of stomach problems caused by the meds. Now my skin is smoother, I have TONS of energy (not hyper), and just feel better over all. I'm trying to get hubby to give it a try since he has acid reflux and a fuzzy-headed feeling for 6 months now. I'll get him to try it eventually! He's amazed at my lack of pain now. Thank you all so much for posting your findings, it's given me my old self back and I've missed it!

I have RA and have kept it at bay very successfully for 20 years primarily with an ACV and honey drink (water, 1 tbls acv, 1 tbls honey). I also avoid my trigger foods (for me are Citric acid and red meat) but if I feel any achiness at all coming on its back to my ACV and honey drink for a few days and I am good.

1 Tablespoon ACV with 2 Tablespoons water a day cured my arthritis and hot flashes. My friend told my husband and I to take ACV for our sore wrists and hands and we started 2 mos. ago. After one mo. I noticed I had absolutly NO hot flashes. This amazed me. I really had them bad night and day. I also noticed no acid reflux (quit taking my prilosec a month ago) and no restless legs to speak of. I also feel I have lost a couple of lbs. Of Course the hand and wrist pain is gone. This is probably crazy but my eyelashes are longer. Pretty funny huh?

I mixed 1 tablespoon of acv with 1 teaspoon of raw honey in 6 oz of water and drank it three times a day. It instantly cured my arthritis, I was suprised. And my appetite is suppressed. I recommend this to anyone , oh and i do not have to take an allergy pill' I highly recommend this to anyone who has any kind of problem. my grandpa used to use this and he is 76 years old healthy.

I originally tried ACV for weight loss; I have a stubborn 20 pounds to lose. I was pleasantly surprised as to how pain-free I became in a matter of a few days. My knees no longer 'click' when I go up stairs. I can bend and squat to play with my children and no longer suffer ankle pain from the effort. My acid reflux is gone as well. When I run out of ACV, in a matter of days, the pain returns and I'm like an old lady once more. It works for me!

In 1991 I had a cortisone injection in my I would need another every 6 months and would eventually need an operation. Having read Dr Jarvis's cider vinegar book, I drank daily about 500ml of mixture (1 tsp honey, 2 tspns cider vinegar to a glass or cup of water). Although it had no immediate effect, I continued to take it for general health reasons, but after 2-3 months, suddenly realised that I had no pain in hand/wrist. Despite having lazily ceased this practice, I still have no trouble in the hand. Perhaps my recent right hip replacement would not have been necessary had I continued treatment. I have now resumed the habit, making up a litre jug of mixture and drinking it frequently, in hopes of preventing the need for a left hip replacement as some signs of wear are apparent. I am convinced of the benefits, but warn people that it is not a short term fix. On the other hand, 15 years of no pain suggests that it is has a long-term effect. Go for it!

In the mid to late 1980's I was working in an Extended Care Unit in a hospital, working as a Care Aide. All through out this time I had been seeing my doctor because of constant pain due to arthritis. My back and knees hurt so bad sometimes it was near unbearable. My knees were so bad I could not touch a knee cap with a finger it hurt so bad. X-rays were taken of my knees, showing spurs under the knee cap itself. X-Rays also take of the small of my back, the doctor said he'd never seen arthritis so bad in someone so young, that everything was becoming one, even my fingers were beginning to twist. He tried me on different arthritis pills to see which would work the best, one finally JUST eased the pain slightly. Now working in the hospital that your doctor works is not to good at times. I was attempting to kneel down and had a extremely hard time of it trying to stay more on my side and very hard time trying to stand; my doctor happened to be on the floor at that time and saw this, told me to make an appointment to see him, he then told me I would have to find other work because I couldn't live like this. The pills the doctor had me on cost $60 a month. He said I would have to take them the rest of my life. At home I thought of this, then remembered something my chiropractor told me, take 2 teaspoons acv, 2 teaspoons of honey in water, adjust to taste. One day (no longer working at the hospital) I ran out of pills, out of money, then remembered what my chiropractor said. I thought there would be a transition period for the acv to work, I was preparing myself for a whole lot of unbearable pain. I started the drink that night and every night for 1 week. Besides flushing my kidneys out, there was NO transition at all. There was no pain, absolutely nothing...and still there is no pain. So I followed my chiropractors instructions because obviously he knew what he was talking about. I then stopped taking it. I found I would get cravings for it, so I took this as my body telling me it needed it. To this day I had not taken any pills from the doctor for arthritis. It has now been 16 years. If you read the instructions how to clean a drip coffee machine, it says to use vinegar. Vinegar dissolved calcium build in the machine and I've found it dissolved the build up in my body. I am back taking acv, this time daily...do not plan on stopping this time. This really is a miracle for me and do advise people to try it, it really does work, besides what have you got to lose other than pain, and you can't beat the cost. It won't hurt and anything as far as I'm concerned is better than taking pills from doctors who treat symptoms...not cure.

I have arthritis of the spine and a friend of mine gave me a recipe with apple juice, grape juice and Apple Cider Vinegar. I have been taking a 1/2 cup daily for about a month and I know that it is helping me tremendously. I can get out of bed in the mornings without having to stand still for a few seconds. It has also helped me curb my appetite.

I am a huge proponent of RAW apple cider vinegar. My husband and I have been using it three times daily for about five weeks. He no longer has the joint stiffness and pain associated with arthritis. We did quit using all sugar and white processed flour as well.

I suffer from chronic arthritis of the ankle due to a serious injury several years ago. There is no cartilage left between my joint according to my X-rays. After being prescribed Celebrex I was concerned about finding out later that it caused adverse side affects like Vioxx. After hearing from a friend about the healing affects of ACV, I went cold turkey off Celebrex and began using ACV. I had been taking Celebrex for about two months and I thought that once I stopped the drug I would be in extreme pain. After two weeks of using ACV only, there is very little pain or swelling any more. I will continue to use ACV for other ailments as well.
