My system stopped working in its usually very regular manner, tried probiotics, it did not help me. After visiting this site, read a lot of the reviews and seems that different things work in different situations. The thing that helped me was 12 ounces of water with about a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and magnesium supplement tablet; this got things moving in a good way on the first day. Today just used a little cider vinegar with water, no magnesium, when I first woke up. Within 15 minutes, had to go and once again without the runs. This was after a week of almost nothing coming out.

I have found a great solution for constipation; in my case I was born with a mold virus. I use Apple Cider Vinegar in a cup or container with fresh chopped garlic and chopped onion, let it set for an hour or two, then take an enema and for me it works right away. Also once in awhile I add aloe vera to my mixture as it's a great healer. Good Luck

I have been drinking 1 cap of apple cider vinegar (ACV) and water everyday for 6 years. It has changed my life forever. My entire life I had constipation problems, colds, bloating.... Now all healed. I carry my bottle with me when I travel. I have even purchased when in Greece and Turkey. I will never miss a day in my life without this miricle product! Don't wait start drinking now.

HI I just wanted to let people knw my story, I have been on a low carb diet wihich also known as protein sparing modified fast its very stricted in food u intake, awesome diet however the only problem is u don`t have bowel movements for days, a friend of mine told me she been taking apple cider vinegar ever since she had her last kid, and ask me to give it a try, so i did 2 tablespoon daily pure just like that no water no sweetener its just easier this way comparing in adding whole lot of water and honey...which tend to make it harder to drink. And belived or not i have bowel movements every single day, and its just 2 tablespoon a day and drink lots of water itself the whole day, i feel great more than ever, i highly recommend that to any body that suffer bowel movements, plz go buy yourself a good ACV unfiltered u will see diference in you.

I have suffered from ulcerative colitis and constipation for years. My medications (for other health problems) seemed to be making the constipation worse. I eat lots of fiber, drink plenty of water & exercise regularly, but the constipation did not go away. I found this site & decided to try ACV. I took 2 teaspoons last night with water and then 2 tsp. this morning followed by water & it worked perfectly! I was amazed that I achieved these results so quickly. I actually had a normal bowel movement. I feel great! I will definitely keep taking ACV. Thanks!

I tried apple cidar vinegar (1 tbs) straight chased by water. Wow! It immediately had me running to the bathroom. I know it says to take it in water and sip it all day long, but if you feel brave and feel the need to purge, this is the way to go. Warning! It burns a bit, but I think that is because it is working and cleansing the insides.

I'm not even sure where to start. Today is my 6th day taking ACV (_____s organic). I'm taking 2 tsp along with 1 tsp pure natural honey mixed in apx 2 ounces of water, 3x a day ( before each meal.) Apx 2 years ago I developed a white mole directly under my eye, hated it and always planned on finding out about getting it removed. On day 4 of taking the ACV, I had gotten out of the pool and was rubbing my eye and noticed I couldn't feel the mole. I went to the mirror to look and could barely see it. Today is day 6 and it's almost gone! I have another dark mole on my arm that is also changing!

Another HUGE change this week are my bowel movements. I am hypothyroid, and normally when I'm eating healthy items such as alot of fruits and veggies, I tend to have a hard time producing a movement, but this week I have been producing at least once, sometimes twice a day, and they are very large healthy movements. I have also lost 4+ lbs which of course I also attribute to eatting better and drinking alot of water. I tend to go on these health kicks alot, for long periods of time, but this is my first time trying the ACV and I have been telling everyone about my dissapearing mole and my movements for 2 days now. I cant wait to wake up each day and see what else is going to change! Loving it, and I will keep yous updated! Thanks, Mom in Phila

I have been suffering from constipation and dyspepsia for years and am "used to it". I tried all sort of "fiber" products including all kinds of oatmeal, yogurt etc. some works only when u take it and when u stop ..back to heavy feeling again. When i started taking ACV (i took it for a mistaken lymph node but its actually a boil) i feel lighter, constipation is gone every after meal....and i lost 2lbs for a week..it's really a MIRACLE...lots of benefits...I can't stop thanking this website..more power..

I have been suffering from cystic breakouts and chronic constipation most of my adult life. These issues seem to only have intensified with age. Mind you, I eat an organic, almost-vegetarian diet and am always sure to get my minimum fiber intake. Before ACV, I was lucky if I had a bowel movement every other day and always felt "backed up" and suffered from terrible gas! My face would suddenly erupt in cystic acne lesions that took weeks to heal. After spending literally thousands of dollars on products in an attempt to rid myself of both conditions, I am now able to throw out more than half of the things in my medicine cabinet. I take 2 tbs. ACV morning and night, straight-- I don't even mind the taste. I also apply it topically to my face every morn-- seems to brighten my complexion and tone my pores. If you have sensitive skin, you might want to consider dilluting it, as it is pretty strong. My skin has never been better and I am completely "regular" now-I only wish I had tried this sooner and imagine the years of suffering I could have saved myself. If something ails you, try it-- it certainly can't hurt!

I don't usually write anything back but after taking the apple cider vinegar I felt I had to. I have had very very very bad acid reflux that has gotten worse over the yrs. to the point that it seems any food as soon as it is in my mouth I start with the burning burning burning. Belching....my husband says I do this all night long. I could not sleep flat any longer for I would just throw up in the middle of the night. Not to mention I have not had much sleep for I could NOT eat 4-5 hrs before going to bed! I had trouble swallowing, and have a constant cough, that I have been told could be cancer of the esophagus? When I heard that... I started taking the acv, that very night I slept "normal" and the next morning I had a good bm (which is another problem) Within a few days all my symptoms were gone and it has cured several other ailments as well not to mention loosing weight! I hate the stuff (taste) but you can't ignore the miracle it is. I just think more people should be talking about this simple remedy for sooo many things, what else could it do? I think the list goes on and on. ps. My ph level used to say "consult a physician" to now being normal. I have more energy too!

Apple Cider Vinegar cured my sore throat, sinus infection, loose stools, gas, lack of energy, depression, decreased my appetite, cleared up a dermatologic problem. My sister got me started taking organic ACV 1 tsp in 8 oz spring water 3 times a day. At first I tried it because I had a sore throat that was immediately gone, my sinus infection went away within 24 hours or so. I have IBS and have been battling foul-smelling loose stools for years. Within a couple of days my stools were formed with almost no odor. I feel 100% better. My appetite just dropped and I'm not getting fatty food cravings like I used to and I've lost 22 pounds so far. Also, I have had big painful butt boils off and on for years and my hindquarters cleared up within a couple of days.

For the past year, I have been suffering from severe headaches, my heart would beat extremely fast just from standing up, and dizziness. I knew that it was serious when my head was hurting so bad one day that I went to lie down and woke up almost 15 hours later. I found this website while looking for a cure for gout for someone else. I sent them the information and then began to read the other parts of this site. After my reading, I wrote out a list and I went to the health food store immediately after work. I have been taking the mixture of the water with ACV, liquid garlic, cayenne pepper and blackstrap molasses for a week now. For the first time in a year, I am feeling so much better. My heart rate has slowed. My headaches are gone. I am using the bathroom on a regular basis now and I am not sleepy all of the time. I am also taking multi-vitamins. Thank you for this wonderful website!

Apple cider vinegar helps me with my constipation and urination problems. I also feel like I have more energy. This stuff works for almost anything. I know people that have been taking it for years, so I got online and made sure it was true, I found your web site, and tried the drink for myself at home. It worked wonders.

I was recommended ACV to lose weight.. Not real keen on the idea but to my surprise I found I had regular bowel movements. I take 1 tblspn ACV daily in 300 mls water. This has left me not only feeling relieved, but after two weeks I was waking more alert.. I recommend it definitely for anyone who has bowel problems.. And I don't recommend remedies easily.. As for weight loss, is more than likely to come from emptying the colon.

I started using the vinegar after seeing your web site I noticed I felt better after a few days and am a lot more regular. I dealt with constipation because of meds I take for a kidney transplant and it cured that in 2 days.Great stuff and I use the mixture you recommend and it is plenty.
