While I am a firm believer in the healing abilities of ACV, I must admit this time that it couldn't overcome my flu. The flu already had a 3+ day head start, I was taking 2 tablespoons of the highly known brand of ACV, along with a tablespoon of locally produced honey in 6 ozs of distilled water.
While this combo would knock out the side effects for approx. 2 hours, the flu fought back each time to the level of intensity that had been there previously. I did this 3 times a day, same results each time. Finally had no choice but to go to the doctor getting Tamiflu and a Z pack.
While I haven't read thru all the posts, from this experience maybe because I didn't start early enough this was too little too late. I for one will continue with the ACV in the future.
I've used apple cider vinegar for a cold successfully but for a flu, it did very little if anything. No change really whatsoever. I've had one of the worst strain of flu for about 4 days now and I have taken more ACV than you could shake a stick at and nothing. I've also been taking colloidal silver, black strap molasses, liquid chlorophil and tea with ginger, honey and lemon. The tea has worked the best in stopping the cough.
Not sure if I read this on here somewhere or another site but apparently its really bad to brush your teeth immediatly after taking the acv. Brushing the Apple Cider Vinegar in takes the enamel right off your teeth. Its better to take the Apple Cider Vinegar through a straw to avoid contact with the teeth and also to rinse a couple times with water. Just what I read :)
