Thank u earth clinic.com and the reviews.. I recommend it if ur muscles hurt or u pulled it. I can't get over how much it helped me out.

I can't thank you enough for the ACV cure for my sore muscle! I spent a miserable night with a pulled muscle in my shoulder, and like you, tried everything to fix it. After reading your post, I went immediately to my organic ACV and soaked a paper towel with it, stuck it on my skin, and the pain disappeared within 2 minutes! God Bless you for posting this!

Hey, I have to say the ACV worked for muscle ache. I had a complete body massage earlier today. I was sore when I woke up to get a glass of water and then I stopped to check this site for sore muscles. I drank 1 tablespoon of Acv and 1/2 c water- in 2 minutes my soreness was gone. Thank you EC

I somehow managed to pull a muscle very near the point of my shoulder blade. I have muscle relaxants that would have helped with the pain, but hesitate to use them because of the side effects. I found your site hoping for a simpler cure for this small, yet painful, problem. I applied straight organic ACV to a washcloth - not completely soaking it, but soaking the center 3 inches. Then I put the washcloth over the sore muscle, and helped it stay there by using an ace bandage over that shoulder and under my opposite arm. I'm sure you can use just about anything you can wrap around your body, like gauze, or a long scarf or something. Or you could just lay on your stomach with it on your back if you've managed to hurt a muscle in an area there and you know the washcloth isn't going to want to stay put. Anyway - an hour later and I'm barely feeling pain! I'm not really into holistic/folk medicine, but this has convinced me that it has it's place. I'm going to look up a few things for my pets and see if they like alternative medicine as well! Thank you to the others that posted this cure.

If you've got a cut I think the straight ACV would burn, but you could dilute it 50/50. Straight worked fine for me and I took it off after an hour. The only drawback is the smell - I will need a shower later on, with LOTS of soap. LOL!

RECENTLY I PULLED A MUSCLE IN MY UPPER ARM. THE PAIN WAS REALLY TERRIBLE. I TRIED ICE PACKS, IBUPROFEN, PAIN OINTMENT. NOTHING WORKED. I SOAKED A PAPER TOWEL WITH APPLE CIDER VINEGAR AND APPLIED IT TO THE AREA. THE PAIN WAS GONE ALMOST INSTANTLY. I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT. IT WAS LIKE A MIRACLE.

When we were house hunting in Iran, over 30 years ago, a host offered us a refreshing cold drink on a hot summer day. It was delicious. We found out it was diluted vinegar. Now that I'm trying to get rid of muscle pain, I'm drinking apple cider vinegar but I prepare it the way the Persians do: 2 teaspoons acv, 1 teaspoon honey, and a spring of fresh mint. Add 8 - 10 ounces cold water and give it a stir. Wonderful!

What's surprising me is that the muscles are responding rapidly. I've only drunk it for 4 or 5 days and there's already a noticeable difference. Thought it would take 6 months!
