There was a time when my blood pressure was up, all I had to do was take a small amount of apple cider vinegar and my pressure would be OK in a short period of time. Now when I take the so called apple cider vinegar all I get is what else do you have! What have they done to the real Apple Cider Vinegar? I am not the only one asking this question.
Apple cidar vinegar is a miracle worker for me...since I have been using it for about 3-4 months now alot of things have drastically changed.
Let me remind you all that I have had severe high blood pressure since the age of 18 and today at 49 my pressure is normal and for 4 months I am meds free! Although my doc cant figure out how my pressure is normal and I havent filled my prescription in months.
Secondly, I deal with fibroids which makes my stomach bulge but the apple cider v has decreased the blood flow tremendously during periods. Although I am finding ways to shrink fibroids the ACV is shrinking my body weight like crazy! I took birthday pics and when I looked at myself I was greakin shocked! I looked damn goood and like 10 pounds lighter w no photo editing. Every morning I use 1 tablespoon a squeeze of lemon in 8oz of water. Then before dinner same routine. This works for me...
But I warn you DO NOT self medicate with just ACV if you have serious health issues.
For me I wanted another alternative to wean me off bp medication and for me it worked. 4 months later and bp is still normal as I take it every morn. ACV is my miracle worker and I will use it til im old & gray.

2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (ACV) mixed in a 12 oz glass of water reduces my blood pressure (BP) in about 30-40 minutes. I have a home BP monitor, ACV consistently reduces my systolic by 10-20 points and diastolic 10-15 points.
I have High Blood Pressure and was taking Atenolol/Chlorthalidone (100-25mg Tab) for some time now. What got me started on ACV was that my doctor told me that my cholesterol numbers were high and that medication would be the key. I refused because I did not need another drug in my system. I got down to the last of the HBP pills and had to wait for more funds at that time to get more. I panicked but prayed about my situation. I had pounding headaches from no longer being on the meds. ACV (with the 'Mother') was put in my path because of the cholesterol issue so I began taking 2 tbsps with a full glass of water twice a day (began 12-09-16 day one). I then noticed that the headaches subsided over night. I was led to go on the web to research about HBP and found Earth Clinic. I found it positive and uplifting and there were people like myself who wanted to 'heal thyself'. I am now on day two of the regimen taking ACV 2tbsp with a full glass of water (I use a straw and it tastes ok) 3x per day (upon rising after prayer, midday and before I go to sleep). I meditate and walk around 1 hour per day; then I do light yoga daily. Everything positive and healing I focus on and do. My doctor's appointment is in January and I will see what happens. In the meantime, I will continue the regimen, find a reliable BP machine to keep up my readings and pray as well. I am also keeping a tally of my regimen to share in the future with all here.
I read one of the reader's posts (thank the reader) and it talked about beta blockers. The meds I was taking has a beta blocker in it and it blocks calcium from being absorbed in the body ( we need calcium! ). The Chlorthalidone makes you potty and you flush out Potassium (we need that too! ). These drugs are like 2 edge swords sort to speak; they are supposed to help you but hinder you down the road. I am so glad I have the gumption to do research and not buy into the pharmaceutical companies hype. One billion dollars is earned in that industry and people are getting sicker than ever. Enough of the soapbox for now. I will keep the community updated and thank you all. Be Blessed!
Shortly after starting my days off with 1tbs of ACV mixed with 4 oz water, I started to get light headed and nagging little headaches. I am currently taking meds for high bp (lisinopril-hctz 20-12.5 m), stopped taking ACV and everything cleared up. Once I am sure that was the cause of the issue I may start up again but starting out with lower amount of ACV and building up.
Well I have to say ACV is the way to go to lower your HBP...It's the best thing ever! I got diagnose with Bp it was up setting for me. I had went for my annual check up tho my blood results were excellent my Dr. didn't understand how I got Hbp my reading was 165/100 now its 110/73 by just drinking Acv it's AMAZING it really works.. I'm not on any medication I go natural it's the best way to go tho you have to get use to the taste. You have to be consistent with it this is my secret. I drink it every morning b4 anything with 2Tablespoon of Acv, half a lemon w/ a 8oz warm water. I don't eat or drink anything after drinking it, So it can hit the bloodstream after an half an hour I do... Listen this really works and it's the best thing...You have to be consistent with it in order to see results..Trust me it works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My father is 59 yrs old and he has high BP and cholesterol since many years and he is a doctor so he takes allopathic medicines daily for high BP, cholesterol, anxiety and sleeplessness etc(no use of any natural remedy till now). Although he maintains very good weight constantly since many years. (He has undergone a major surgery for haemorroids one year ago. )
I always tell him about lots of benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar and now he is ready to take it. Can he take Apple Cider Vinegar with his regular medicines? (Coz giving up medicines is difficult for him. )
As we know, hard taste of Apple Cider Vinegar becomes soft by adding baking soda also it is good combination for maintaining alkalinity of body. Can he take Apple Cider Vinegar + soda ?
Waiting for your generous support. May Lord bless you and your family. Thank you very much.
Hi Everyone, glad to be part of the community and the wonderful remedies I am now aware of. I am thankful to the creators of this site and all contributors.
Now to my enquiry, I have read of the benefits of ACV for HBP sufferers and decided to give it a try. I was unable to get the one with the mother in it but simply went ahead with the store option. Problem is that my bp went up to 170/120 from 150/100 which was already high. I had to check my BP when I noticed migranelike heacache of which I still have a little left. I am simply wondering if there was anything I did wrong.
I tried as well to add Sodium Bicarbonate and Cayene pepper most times when I take the ACV also. At other times, I will simply take the extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice combo for the pain I had on my right lower flank abdomen. None of the scans prior to the Lemon Juice/ EVCO did not show any kidney stones. However, pain was gone after I took the lemon juice and EVCO. I stopped when the pain stopped. When pain tried to surface again, I did same thing again and pain was gone. I simply keep lemon fruits and EVCO handy in case pain tries to surface again. And of course, I take a lot of water everyday. This is in addition to my family's weekly routine of frshly squeezed juice (orange, watermelon, pineapple, lemon etc) drink. I also add Moringa to my meals also as much whenever I eat those food that it is easy to combine with. Is there something I did not do right?
I saw my physician today and immediately went back to the medication (Novasc 10mg) that I use whenever my blood pressure goes up. Had to do that in the interim while I await feedback from members of the community. I generally do not take the medication all the time but as is required and this is usually when my pressure goes up. I indeed will love to control my blood pressure naturally.
Secondly, I recommended the lemon juice / EVOO cumbo for my father in-law. 3 tablespoon Lemon juice and 3 tablespoon EVOO. He has HBP, diabetes and was diagnosed in August with prostrate cancer. He complians about painful urination sort of. I recommended the cayenne pepper / warm water combination. 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper / 8 oz glass of water 3x daily. I recommended they add Sodium Bicarbonate to the family's drinking water in other to help with the general alkalizing of their bodies. I also recommended that he takes the lemon juice / EVCO the way I combine in my own case above. I would equally love to know if my recommendations are ok and what else we could do. Would have loved to try the Sodium Bicarbonate / Mollases or maple syrup combination but worried about the sugar part as a result of his diabetes. Let me know if there is another way we could handle the High BP, diabetes and prostrate cancer all at the same time. I will very must appreciate all responses that will help us overcome this trying time in our lives. I am a firm believer in natural therapy and will love a situation where we go off these medications and their side effects. Thanks all and cheers!

I have had great success also---in only 3 days -- using apple cider vinegar for high blood pressure.
I had been feeling very tired , weak and had a headache for several days. Actually, months! I usually take my blood pressure often because my mother and sister had high blood pressure controlled very poorly by medicine. I've been borderline for years. I finally got up the nerve to take it and was shocked to see it was 196/115. I never go to the doctor, but could see this was serious. It was on Thursday. I decided to try acv.
I drank 1 tbls with the juice of a lime in about a half cup of water. I did this 2 times on Thursday, but pressure still stayed above 190/105. I took the vinegar once yeasterday morning , did not take my pressure but still felt bad. This morning I took a dose, and an hour later took my pressure. I noticed I felt better. Pressure is 145/90. I am so happy. I will take my pressure daily now and continue drinking the Apple Cider Vinegar daily. I hope to see these numbers continue to drop to normal.
Thanks Earth Clinic!
I would say "ACV" is amazing. I was always in this thought that I ve "White Coat Syndrum" but it was not the reality so I was dignose with HBP(reading 160/100) in May. I want to try some natural remedies instead going on medication as I am taking medication for high cholesterol. I found this wonderful site of natrual remedies. I started taking ACV on Aug. 14 (this day I had Cardiac stress test and my BP was 165/110) within 4 days my BP is down to 133/88. Really I am surprised to see the results THanks to "Earthclinic"
How I take ACV? After reading almost every page on this topic, I choose take it like this:
3 tbls(0. 8 oz) of ACV and 1 tbls of Honey mix in
8-10 oz of warm water. I take it in the morning and bed time.
That s IT
I'm responding to the acv. I had the same success with my blood pressure. Someone said that their pressure went down within 45 mins. of taking the acv. I figured it was worth a shot, it's only acv. It went down in that time frame. I feel wonderful joint pain and knee pain even went away. It's been three years now. Thanks for sharing your hb pressure info. Thanks everyone. Thank you Earth Clinic.
I have heard of using apple cider vinegar (ACV) before but never tried it. Unfortunately I ran out of medicine and couldn't get a refill until I saw Dr. My Bp has been rising over last few weeks. On yesterday it was 160/100. I couldn't sleep I thought I might die. I prayed about natural remedies went online and saw this immediately went to get ACV.
This morning it was 157/96. At 5 144/90 I have taken apple cider vinegar twice today and now 137/78. This is lowest in 2 weeks. I am still going to Dr. But I thank GOD. I will continue my ACV.
Last Thursday I had my BP taken and it was 164/104 that was at 6AM I waited 10 minutes for a retake and it had went to 160/107. I donate plasma and have on and off for years and that's how I know this. There have been other times the last few months where it's 159/99 or 165/103 and so on. I do have neuropathy in my feet which can be very painful and I had taken 2 ibuprofen and 2 acetominophin at about 4AM as my feet were in a lot of pain. I like to donate plasma so I can have extra money for the week and I also know a couple people who rely on it and even if it's not mine my friends have nurses out to their homes and hook up to the pick line to do the medicine delivery. I couldn't donate that day and it was a bummer so I went to my car got on the Internet on my phone and found this site and that morning before work I went and got ACV at the store thank goodness Byerly's opens at 6AM. I went home told my wife and started ASAP.
I personally after reading several pages and posts decided to take 3 tablespoons 2 times a day. I mix it with Apple Juice and I small spoonful of this thick and gooey honey my wife has. It's only been 4 days and I went to donate again at 6AM, (I like to be first then I'm done by 7:15) and get this my BP went to 149/89. Fluke? Who knows but even the lady I like to have screen me even said how low it is today and my iron was excellent she said, best she's seen. Now it hasn't helped my feet at all but I do feel my appetite has changed for the better as well. So thank all you kind people who helped me and I'm an ACV drinker now!

I have only been taking ACV for a short time and my BP has already lowered. I dreaded having my BP taken in the Dr.s Office, because it was so high. Usually ran 150/98 or somewhere in that neighborhood.
I am on HBP meds and have been for years. Since taking two TBS in four OZ. of grape juice it is now 122/78. I found it taste really good in apple juice too. You can barely taste the ACV. I am using organic ACV. Thanks for this wonderful website.

My husband tried the apple cider vinegar 2x daily to lower his blood pressure. After 12 days, his pressure was the same. It didn't work for him.
