Better But With Side Effects
I've been taking ACV (just a supermarket brand but it's organic) since August. I take two teaspoonfulls in a glass of water and sip it throughout the day.
It was brilliant at first. I had so much energy I could take on the world! However, I'm finding now that even if I just have a small mouthful, I'm getting dizzy. What could be the cause of this do you think? Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I've had to stop taking the ACV and I do miss the energy so...

I am considering re-starting ACV just 2 days a week to begin with (after stopping if over a month ago) for my food allergies. I just read that ACV helps in reducing blood pressure. I normally have a low blood pressure. Is it ok to take ACV in that case or would it reduce my blood pressure even further? I have just had a stunt with brain fog and don't want to get into any other trouble again.

For low blood pressure, use 1 teaspoon of fresh squeezed lemon in a bottle of water, about 500ml once daily for 1 week.
Note: you will urinate a lot, so you need to replace fluids lost too. I use this remedy all the time, be cautious!!!!
Raisins helped improve my low blood pressure:
I didn't realise that I had low blood pressure until my partner bought a blood pressure monitor so that he could keep an eye on his high blood pressure.
I was told that low blood pressure shouldn't be too much of a problem but it didn't take long to see a correlation between the times when I felt most tired and low energy, with the times when my pressure was lowest. I found a couple of sites on the internet which suggested soaking 30 raisins in about 1/2 cup of water overnight and then eating the raisins (chewing well) and drinking the water on an empty stomach first thing the morning. I did this three times during the course of one week and three months later my pressure has improved and I feel way more energetic.
I would like to know what anyone recommends for LOW blood pressure.

I too have low blood pressure. My doctor told me that adding salt to a food will raise blood pressure. Anytime I feel dizzy, I eat something salty. It works, almost immediately. I use iodized salt. Though sea salt is much better for you, I am not sure it raises blood pressure.
