I have struggled with GERD, Overweight, and fatigue for several years. After the medical discovery that Prilosec, Nexium and other medications as these can stop calcium from being absorbed in your bones, I was a little scared. So I decided to do some web surfing for natural cures.. And YOU WERE HERE! Over a week ago I started the ACV and HOT water with baking soda mixture. The first three days I lost 5 pounds and my reflux problem was gone. It tried to come back later that first week, so I increased my intake of AVC to a more powerful solution.
1/2 cup of ACV
1/2 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda ( 1 x day)

Today I weighed again ad I have lost 9 lbs! I am so happy! Plus my blood pressure is becoming more stable. The GERD is gone. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for this website! God bless you guys!!

ACV is amazing! I've been reading this website and decided to try 'The Cleanse' recipe for losing weight. On 2/5/07 I began taking 1/2 cup of _______s Unfiltered ACV, 1/4 cup fresh squeezed lemons, cayenne pepper, and 2 tablespoons of honey in a quart of spring water and only 4 days later, I've lost 5 lbs.! I'm so excited about ACV; I didn't think it would work so fast. My goal is to lose 20-25 lbs. I will continue this regimen until I reach my goal. Thank you for this wonderful website!

Hi, I found this site and am amazed by what I am reading. My mother always told a story of how in the thirties, my uncle was a little boy and desperately ill. The doctors could not figure out what was wrong or how to help him and finally told my grandparents to prepare for the worst. Apparently all he kept asking for was vinegar (my mom never specified if it was ACV) and when things looked really bleak, they decided to let him have it since he never stopped asking for it and since there was no real reason to deny him, however bizarre it seemed to give it to him. He apparently struggled to drink it, but got through a whole bottle in a few hours despite his weakness. The fever suddenly broke and he fully recovered, and to this day no one in my family really understood how. Now I'm getting a clue as to why! So, I thought I would try the honey/water/AVC drink three times a day- today is day 5 and while I didn't see any real weight loss until today, today my jeans are suddenly loose! Also been using it as a toner and guess what! No trip to the dermo like I planned because my pores are getting smaller on their own! Depression doing a lot better too - though the jury is still out on that since today I was a bit down after a few up days - will check back in and let everyone know- but WOW! I'm amazed! My little uncle was really on to something, clearly!

My boyfriend recently told me about Apple Cider Vinegar mixed with apple juice as a cure for sore throat, colds etc... I remember hearing about ACV in the 70's for weight loss but never knew how to take it. I did some research and found this site and decided to try it. I AM CONVINCED THAT ACV IS A MIRACLE CURE!! Remember the old adage "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"? Well I thought it can't hurt so I started drinking 2 t. of ACV with 6 oz. apple juice twice a day, 5 days ago. I have increased energy, decreased appetite and for the first time in 10 years I did not get a menstrual migraine with my period this morning. I've been taking Maxalt at least twice a month for years for hormonal migraines and did not need it today. That in and of itself has made me a believer. My boyfriend has also reported increased energy and general overall well being. We will continue to drink ACV daily. Thank you for this great site!

I tried ACV for the first time early last year; lost 45 pounds in about 3 months...Lowered the dosage when I reached my goal....Now whenever I gain a few pounds again I increase the dosage and quickly lose the weight...Is also great to knock out a sore throat, congestion, or colds...If I feel a sore throat or cold coming on at night I gargle the ACV twice (and swallow)...Nine times out of ten it is gone the next morning. Just be sure to swish out your mouth with water, it is acidic and will eat away at the enamel on your teeth.....So many people look for the "silver bullet" regarding weight loss; for most (not all) this is it...This has been around for years, but for whatever reason it is too simple for most folks to even consider...

After reading the many posts about ACV and weight loss I noticed that many who had lost weight also changed diet and added exercise to the mix. In my mind, those are the elements that induced weight loss, not ACV. However, I am a believer in natural health care, so I tried the ACV without changing a thing about my lifestyle-- no change in diet, no added exercise. My normal eating habits are better than the average American, but I do eat a lot of home-baked goods because I live with a fabulous baker. I do light exercise for an hour 2-3 times per week teaching a self-defense class, but it is not a workout! Once or twice a month, I manage to fit in a real workout. Otherwise, I sit at a desk all day and teach a couple of nights. I take 2 tablespoons ACV with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 8 ounces of water once per day. Time of day varies for me as I am not a routine-oriented person. I drink it straight up (the flavor doesn't bother me) and in two weeks I have lost 3 pounds. Interestingly, this has motivated me to recommit to my own workouts more often. I sense the ACV is helping me to clear and cleanse and balance, which generally keeps me healthier and curbs cravings. It's cheap too!

I've been drinking 1.5 l of water with 3 tbsp of acv everyday and noticed that it wasn't really doing anything. My acne (really, really mild) stayed the same and so did my weight; actually it increased but that's just due to how me and my sorority eat. 4 days ago I was reading the more drastic cures for weight problems and sort of made my own concoction:

1/2 cup acv,
1/2 water,
2tsp honey.

I like to get unpleasant stuff over and done with and this cure is made to do just that. It has the same weight loss benefits as the classic 1/2 cup acv, 1l water and 2tbsp honey only you take it in one shot and you don't have to worry about it for the rest of the day. I use a straw; it makes it easier to gulp down and seems to be slightly less harmful for my teeth. I then slowly eat a couple of cubes of cream cheese (to neutralize the remaining acid in my mouth) and brush my teeth. The results? I have lost 4lbs in 4 days and 4 cms off my waist. I am not a heavy person, so this just shows that even people who want to lose a little weight just before swimsuit season can quickly (and relatively safely) do so. There is one con to it: after you drink it you feel a little queasy for about 15 minutes and I personally can't bring myself to eat breakfast for half an hour afterwards. As a side note: to give a better idea of the other things that contribute to my weight gain/loss, here is what I do every day: I speedwalk/ jog for at least one hour almost every day (minimum 6 days a week) but on the other hand I also LOVE pasta and milk products and haven't yet started moderating my caloric intake. I hope this helps; I just wanted to contribute seeing as I'm eternally grateful to those who have posted their recipes because I have never been able to lose weight this fast and still eat the stuff I love in the quantities I want. Good luck to everyone!

I take ACV 2TBS in 8oz water taking sips all through the day. I was bloated all month and had water retention 10 days before my period. I was miserable i tried everything, diet change, pills homeopathic, and my husband is a physician and he gave all kind of medicines but still everything just could not solve my problem. i was annoyed all the time because i do not know what my exact size was and i was restless all the time , never comfortable, in sitting or lying down. Then looking for cure on internet in homeopathy somebody mentioned earth clinic, and i went to the site, and from that day my life changed. After reading about ACV I got up and mix one TS in one glass of water and without thinking i drank it. After 10 minutes my head suddenly clear and then my migraine was gone which I have been having for the last 10 years every week and i do not know how many pandols i have taken for that.----Well for the last 2 months, I am bloat free, water retention free, migraine free, and i am feeling comfortable for the first time in last 10 years. I have lost 10 pounds and I know my exact size now. Plus I had very bad dandruff and hair acne and twice a week I have been washing my hair with ACV and after two months I am free of dandruff and acne. There was no change initially except my migraine was gone but suddenly after one month before my periods i started noticing changes. No bloatedness and water retention and i had lost weight. I am thankful to all of u, whoever started this site. This has truly helped me. My doctor husband cannot believe it.

Just try it. Even if u don't see results initially it will show some benefits, later. I am hooked for life and i am giving it to my teenager son and daughter.

I have been experiencing recurrent chest pain for almost the last year, all tests (ECG's, Halter Monitor and lots of blood work) indicated that there was nothing wrong with my heart so the doctors put me on one of those fancy (and expensive) proton pump inhibitors as they assumed everything was related to GERD (acid reflux). I am not sure if it was GERD that I had but the chest pain has gone away. As a bonus I have been shedding pounds like never before. However I do think that the weight loss is mostly water due to the fact that ACV acts as a mild diuretic. Interestingly enough unlike other natural diuretics ACV doesn't affect your salts/electrolytes because it contains potassium. Really happy to have found this website!

Since turning 41 four years ago I've had a lot of trouble losing the 15 pounds that I put on quickly when I entered my forties. Nothing has worked. I've tried many "diet" pills and a low carb diet, spending a lot of money on the pills, but nothing worked over a long period of time. Even power walking, which I used to swear by, hasn't been working. My husband's cousin tried the Isagenix diet with great success, but I didn't want to invest hundreds of dollars and have it fail, too. So I got on the internet one day and started to think about what natural solution I could find. I tried the "lemon/maple syrup/cayenne pepper diet/cleanse before, but it is difficult to stick with. Then I thought about Apple Cider Vinegar and began to read about it. I started taking _______'s natural ACV a few weeks ago, mixed with water and cayenne pepper, and I can really see the results as far as weight loss/water retention loss goes. And I haven't even started to watch what I eat or exercise yet. I can see the pounds dropping off and my clothes are looser. It's a simple, healthy, remedy that has other health benefits (vitamins, minerals, reduces stomach problems) and doesn't cost a lot! I feel like I've finally found that certain something that has brought my metabolism back to where it should be.

Apple Cider Vinegar cured my sore throat, sinus infection, loose stools, gas, lack of energy, depression, decreased my appetite, cleared up a dermatologic problem. My sister got me started taking _______'s organic ACV 1 tsp in 8 oz spring water 3 times a day. At first I tried it because I had a sore throat that was immediately gone, my sinus infection went away within 24 hours or so. I have IBS and have been battling foul-smelling loose stools for years. Within a couple of days my stools were formed with almost no odor. I feel 100% better. My appetite just dropped and I'm not getting fatty food cravings like I used to and I've lost 22 pounds so far. Also, I have had big painful butt boils off and on for years and my hindquarters cleared up within a couple of days.

I have been using ACV pills and Cayenne Pepper capsules to lose weight. I have been taking them now for three weeks. I have noticed a difference already. With a little exercise at least 5 times a day, nothing strenuous and cutting down on fatty foods and snacks have helped me loose weight so far. I have not weighed myself yet, but will do so after I see more results. Everyone is complimenting me telling me that I have been loosing weight. It feels good to hear that. My clothes are fitting looser and that makes me feel good. I don't particularly like the taste of ACV itself so I opted for the pills and the pepper not such a fan of the really hot stuff either but they work just as good. If you don't like the cayenne pepper use the capsules. You should take them with food so that you don't feel the heartburn or the uncomfortable feeling in your stomach in the beginning. After a few you will not have any symptoms. So far it has worked for me. I'll keep taking them until I finish the bottles and by then I should have shed more weight.
