Hello...Over the last week, the joints of my fingers have become quite swollen, hard and sore. I would like to try the ACV cure, but am a bit confused as to when to take it..can some one advise me...should I take it before, after or with meals, and is it best to start with 1 tsp or 1 tbsp. Also what is the best amount of water to use. If anyone has had this same issue, did you include the Baking Soda or just stick with the ACV?

I started ACV to try to take care of heartburn... It has worked WONDERS on my aching hands, feet, joints... After just one week I can feel an amazing difference in how I feel when I first get out of bed in the morning. My Mother has had severe RA for over 20 years and I was starting to worry that I was in route to RA. Hope this helps someone who has MAJOR pain in joints... Especially in the mornings...
This is my first ever post/question.
Please would someone answer this question ASAP.
I have been using organic ACV with the mother, dosage at 1 tbsp to about 10 ozs alkaline water with 1 tbsp of unsulphered organic molasses in the morning on an empty stomach and then the same again, 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar 10 ozs alkaline water only 1 tsp of raw honey late at night just before bed. Been doing this for a few weeks, nearly finished my second 32 oz bottle. Taken a couple of 2 day breaks from the ACV, but not done that for about 2 weeks now.
I am now every day waking up with achy joints, usually the hips and maybe the feet, the odd twinge in ths shoulders, but never the knees, plus just feeling achy, at times all over during the day.
I drink a lot of commercially "made" alkaline water during the day plus some herbal tea made with alkaline water. I started doing the ACV because after I had tennis/computer elbow for a few months, which has now complete healed, my left elbow began getting stiff and achy. The elbow aching has largely gone, but some stiffness/pain is still there, but it's slightly reduced after the ACV and other natural remedies. Like magnesium oil. I have just obtained some quality Oil of Wild Oregano for inflammation.
I have had a very ocasional touch of gout, just really one bad attack several years ago when I started on an rx BP medicine, but now it seems to only come on once a year in mid December, when it first gets really cold here. Copious amounts of water seem to get rid of it, and mercifully I have found ACV seems to instantly stop any attack. Cherries don't work for me.
I fully realise that the uric acid and calcified deposits etc have built up over the years. I check my urine during the day with PH strips. The achy joints in the morning seems to coincide with more acidic urine @ 6.0/6.2. And this slowly gets more alkaline - usually back up to 6.8/7.0 during the day as I drink the alkaline water ... And after the ACV drink. But the achiness comes and goes all day.
MY QUESTION IS THIS ... Should I endure the achiness for a while longer, as the ACV leaches out the years of deposits, or should I take a break for a day or more every week? Or should I dilute the ACV a bit more? I'd rather not take the baking soda because of the high salt content. My BP is completely normal with the BP pills with not even a hint of any side effects.
My elbow, the reason I started with ACV, is still stiff. BUT obviously I don't want to damage my joints using ACV. I have read many "testimonials" and other posts on EC and other sites, but very few seem to explicitly cover this area. I obviously understand that everyone's biochemistry is different, and that the leaching out takes a while. I also take krill oil capsules late at night too, which is the best time to maximise the effects.
I understand there is NO "set period" to be free of this, but normally after the ACV leaches out the deposits one is supposed to feel much better - right?
Does one usually need to persevere over a few weeks, or can it take months for some people? No one ever seems to be specific about this on the web sites. You usually just read, it worked for me - or not.
I have also sent this directly to Ted, in the hope he will have a few minutes to respond.
Thank you, Andy

I just wanted to mention that I have wanted to try the ACV treatment for joint pain, but could not drink it for the taste. Then I realized that I LOVE warm apple cider. So, I have decided to start drinking 2 tsps of ACV in a cup of warm Apple Cider (morning and night). You can hardly taste the ACV. I believe I will be able to do this. I can't wait to see the results of using it regularly.... Though I am a little worried about my teeth and my esophagus (because it burns my throat). Should I really be concerned about these things?
I also want to mention that I love EARTHCLINIC. It has helped my family so much! Thank You!
ACV for joint pain
Ok, I've finally gotten up the nerve to make a post on EC. I stumbled across EC in my desparation to relieve a really bad flare up of joint pain & inflammation a couple of months ago and I haven't had my nose out of this site much since! I started with adding a splash of ACV to my drinking water (I try to get my 8 glasses a day). Thought it can't hurt to try it. Was really surprised at how much relief it provided. Don't think I'll ever be without it now. Wish I had some idea what causes these flare ups. I suspect food allergies and have eliminated things like wheat and corn. I don't have what I call 'stressers' in my diet because I don't have processed food, don't eat out unless we're on vacation. Been pretty much a health nut my whole life. I enjoy cooking. Have one meal a day that is raw food, the rest consist of grains, nuts, fruits & vegies, organic chicken, fresh eggs and raw milk cheeses and well I think you get the picture. Really don't understand why I have the health problems that I do and I have a host of problems. I'll spare you the details on these till another time. For now though, I think every 'body' needs a little ACV daily! Good health to YOU!

I took glucosamine sulphate for my joints for many years because it helped. Then when I had frozen shoulder, I took a supplement in the hopes that it would help. It made me feel young again, except for my shoulder. However, I found it to be too expensive for me, so when I read about ACV on this website, I decided to try it. I only take 1 tablespoon a day with a glass of water, but that is enough for my joints to feel ok. Sometimes I add 1/4 t. baking soda, esp. if I feel like I'm "coming down" with something. Then I might make a tonic of a couple of tablespoons ACV, lemon joice, and honey, mixed in a mug of hot water. Every week I skip a day or two, as that was recommended somewhere on here.

Wow was I skeptical after reading some of the outrageous claims for apple cider vinegar. I thought I would try it for weight loss. Since December I have been taking a teaspoon in the morning and another in the afternoon. I sort of cup my tongue and place a teaspoonful there and then take a swig of water or coke or anything else I have and swallow both together. My objective here is to try to keep the straight ACV off my teeth and off my throat. ACV has been a total failure for weight loss but a miracle in curing my joint pain. It used to be so painful for me to stand up after sitting in front of a computer screen for 20 minutes. Now I can sit for a couple hours with no pain upon rising from a chair. (It works much better than MSM without the side effects and doesn't cost $30 a month.) I use Trader Joe's brand.
I also have iron-like toenails that require all my strength to cut them. It is hereditary I think as my mother has the same problem. I soak my feet in a solution of 2 or 3 parts water to one part white vinegar. This vinegar is about $2 for a gallon and lasts a long time. It doesn't matter what kind you use, buy the cheapest. Soak your feet in this solution for 10-20 minutes, then trim. We were amazed, you will be too.
Please post your results if either of these solutions work for you. Thanks.
I use Apple cider vinegar daily in the morning before meals, the quantity is of about 2 table spoon. I had a problem of hairloss and joint pain.I am of only 35 years old.
where to find BS molasses in sharjah? apple cider vineger for water retention and now i am free from bloating and also joint pain.
I was having tremendous pain on all over my joints for the last 3 months and I felt that it was increasing every day. Had lot of medicines and none gave me any relief? Then I searched on the net and came across your site, tried ACV and you won't believe that all these 3 months pain vanished in few hours. I thank all the people who submitted feedback in this forum.
I have been drinking apple cider vinegar for about six years. What I noticed right away was I don't have any of joint stiffness and pain. When I stop using it for more than 4 days, the pain returns to my back and neck. I also noticed that my weight is always perfect for my height 5'6", 127 pounds, 54 years old. The vinegar removes the excess salt from your body when you sleep,so no bags under the eyes when you wake up in the morning. I drink two tablespoons of acv with 16 ounces of water, two hours before bed, it removes toxins in your body while sleeping, so no swelling in the joints, no bags under the eyes from excess salt. It is a natural weight loss, as well as rotor-rooters the arteries, so good for your heart. also keeps your body from getting sick. I love it!
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 took one dose of ACV ( apple cider vinegar for muscle and joint pain. Within fifteen minutes I started to perspire and the next day I was able to walk 18 holes of golf. Prior to the remedy I was not able to bend and pick up the golf ball on the ground.
Apple Cider Vinegar has cured: varicose veins, weight lose, tendinitis, wrinkles. In April of 2005, I came across a booklet for ACV, at the time I was 50 years old I played sports in high school, a construction worker for 20 years and a mover for the last 15, so I have done a number on my body over the years. My daughter convinced me to start taking ACV... I have taken it everyday since! The health benefits have been many. The first thing I noticed was my hair and nail growth, doesn't seem like much but my hair was white and had no color, but was growing back in blonde! I thought that was amazing! Over all the years of abuse on my feet and ankles I had purple feet from the varicose veins, it really was a severe case, after two months of use my feet started to look clearer to me, but I wasn't sure so I started taking pictures....I now have NO varicose veins on my feet, legs or anything. In April of 2005 I was a size 38 pants, today I am a 32 pants. I have not done any extra exercise to achieve this, It simply melted the pounds away (I also have a six pack again). The ACV has given me a facelift, I do NOT look like I am 51! My wrinkles around my eyes have literally disappeared. My skin is tighter, firmer every where. I feel like a new man. Over the years while abusing my body in my everyday life (working) I developed new and painful body movements, aches where I never had before and eventually the Doc diagnosed me with tendinitis (really painful) in both of my shoulders, being a mover this isn't good for business, it really started hurting my paycheck (then I started the ACV). I really had not realized I stopped taking the naproxen the Dr. had prescribed until I went to see him for my physical. He asked me if I needed a new script, that's when I realized I used to live on those pills everyday and hadn't needed them once since I started taking the ACV, so I told the Dr. about the ACV he was awed, seeing the results for himself he decided to start taking it, in fact my Barber, Boss, Coworkers, Kids, Brothers and sister all now take it with health benefits of there own. I tell you I LOVE ACV it has changed my life and made me a new healthier man. I actually believe I have a long healthy life ahead. The recipe I use everyday is: 2 table spoons of ACV and 1 Tablespoon of honey. Add water to taste. I do this two times a day, everyday. Good luck to all in your journey to a healthier you!
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!
