That first evening I read about Apple Cider Vinegar for flu/colds/congestion, and both my husband and I immediately started using it (1 Tablespoon in a glass of water, 3 times per day). It didn't taste wonderful, but wasn't TOO bad, and, after all, we were using it as "medicine"...and it did cure both my husband's and my sore throats (Mine within minutes, my husbands within 3 doses).
The next day, while continuing the ACV 3/day,I also tried Jean's Tomato Tea because we were both still so congested. My husband usually likes slightly spice-hot foods, and I usually don't, but with the Tomato Tea he didn't like the "hot" sensation of the spiciness, and refused to drink any more after that first try---while I was instantly aware of it clearing my sinuses and soothing my throat, so I continued to use it over the next 3 days. It worked well for me as a decongestant, but my cold was still very much "there", and I began gaining weight (controlling my weight has been a life-long problem for me), so I stopped using the Tomato Tea, but continued the ACV 3/day. It has now been about a week, and my husband is completely healthy, and this morning I am feeling much better and much less congested.
On the second morning after my husband and I began using ACV, we both lost weight. He has continued with a loss each day, and has now lost 7 pounds in 7 days. I had lost 3 pounds, then gained part of it back while I was using Tomato Tea, but now I am slowly losing again, so long as I don't eat anything with sugar and/or processed wheat flour.

My son had an awful flu that laid him off work for a week. I started to get the same symptons that he started with. I have used the H2O2 in my ears before and fortunately was able to stop it with that and bed rest for a day and also staying away from sugary foods. However, I am doing a pretty stressful job at the moment and finishing a Project at my volunteer organisation. This morning I woke up with my ears very sore and a sore throat. I used the H2O2 in my ears again a couple of times until the fizzing stopped which eased the soreness alot except for one spot in my right ear. I came to work and grabbed some immune boosters from the Health Shop but my throat was still sore. I found your site when I was looking up the info about H2O2 and colds and flu as I hadn't read it for a couple of years and I had been telling the owner of the Health Shop about it. I saw ACV mentioned in the testimonials about using H2O2 orally so had a look at the ACV testimonials as well.
I've just come Back from the supermarket with ACV and measured a couple of tablespoons [by eye] with a teaspoon of honey into a mug of warm water. The relief to my throat was almost instant and I'm really enjoying sipping on it. I'm even starting to pick up a bit of energy too. Thanks for reminding me about something so effective that I had used in the past and had forgot.
Best wishes and keep up the good work.

I heated about 8 oz of orange juice, then 2 tsp of acv. As an addition, and because I'd read about its benefits here, aw well, I added a couple of shakes of ground cinnamon (probably 1/2 tsp or so). I can't taste the vinegar, and I feel better already! Aches are easing, my stomach and intestines are settled, and I don't feel nearly as "bleh" as just half an hour ago. I'll keep it up for a couple of days, here's hoping it continues working! I'm thinking of trying oil pulling next if this keeps up, I'm definitely a believer now.

So, not being able to sleep here, I started surfing the net, and ended up here on your site, because I have been taking antibiotics and whatever else I could get my hands on to try to get the headache to stop and to try to get some form of relief. Well, I kept reading through all the postings and then I decided to give this a shot, nothing else worked, do why not!
I poured about 1/4 cup [ACV] in a glass, then added about 7 or 8 ounces of water. Began drinking it... Keep in mind, I can't smell or taste a thing here, so wasn't that hard to do actually. I did this at 0615 and its about 45 minutes later now, and I am starting to feel the nasal airway open slowly, my ears, well, they sound like popcorn going off, and the headache is getting a little better. Now don't go trying to give your loved one a kiss after drinking this tonic, they will have to no part of it or you for a little bit there.
Give this a try,you just might be as surprized!
