Over the years my children have not always loved the medicines that I have given. They have generally been pretty tolerant and patient, though slippery elm will always be a hard sell for them. :)

Vinegar Tea has been staple in my home for a long time. And now my oldest son gives it to his kids. My 5 year old grandchild loves vinegar tea. My daughter in law makes a large batch of it to give the kids during the day when they are fighting sickness.

It would be better if I had called it, "Honey Tea" from the start. Here is how we make it:

  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2-3 teaspoons honey
  • 6 ounces hot water
  • a dash of cinnamon if desired
  • Mix.

Thats it! Good for cough, colds, flu, sinus infections, stomachache etc.

Pass it on!

Apple cider is good too, just a tablespoon with water twice a day will cut the flu symptoms.

Here is tried and true, southern flu-kicking remedy. Drinking this when I first start to feel sick, kicks the virus out. If taken during cold or flu recovery, helps ease congestion and prevents cough.

8 oz of hot water, 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar, 1 jigger whiskey, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice, 2 shakes of cayenne pepper. Stir and drink slowly. Enjoy.

I've also been seeing a lot of improvement in my flu symptoms using one teaspoon of ACV in 6oz of warm water with a few lemon, honey, and menthol lozenges dissolved in.

I am amazed at how good it works. I have been on this site for 2 illnesses and both were cured with ACV. Old school cures do work! There are healing properties in both ACV and raw honey. Why suffer huh? Spread the news to your friends is my new motto.

I have not had the flu in years and my first day on vacation I started getting the flu symtoms. I immediately pulled up EC website to find a natural remedy, I started taking 2 tablespoons of ACV 3x a day for 3 days. I started feeling better after the first day. ACV & Virgin Coconut oil are my go to natural remedies . This site is amazing!!!! Thank you so much!!

Wow, I was really sick last week and wish I had found this site sooner. I started feeling ill again this afternoon with nausea, headache and fever/chills. I came home and put on a hot pack and was ready to give up for the day when I found this site. I put 2 TBSP of ACV into some hot apple cider. It helped to put it into the apple cider because it almost disguised the bitter taste (almost). Anyways, less than an hour later I can't even tell you how much better I am feeling. So much that I am starting to question whether I really felt that bad or not. Thanks so much, love this remedy. :-)

Around lunch time I started getting the first signs of a flu... Just in nostril. Post nasal drip, beginning to feel that flu like symptoms coming on. Later in the afternoon some sneezing began.

I took an?cotton ear bud, dipped it in ACV then inserted it into my nostril. Made my sneeze straight away. So blew my nose and tried again, this time holding off sneezing while I did both nostrils, and sniffed in, held it and the gave the biggest sneeze.

I repeated the process immediately. its a little un comfortable/irritating. but I felt better almost immediately. Later that night I repeated again twice. Swabbed the inside of each nostril deep with ACV soaked cotton tip. Sniffed in hard, held as long as I could, then sneezed a few times.

The amazing thing is the next morning I work up feeling fine.

Dear Earthclinic:

I became ill with upper respiratory symptoms on Wednesday, and by Friday morning I was unable to go to work. On Saturday, I was so congested I could not breathe out of my nose. The over the counter medication had stopped working and by nightfall, I knew I was in trouble and would not be able to sleep. Suffering from an unbearable headache, overall aches and pains with fever, in desperation I searched the internet hoping to find a natural cure, which would provide me with some relief until I could call my doctor on Monday morning. I came across your website and sent my husband to the store to buy the ACV. I took 2 Tablespoons?in 8 oz of warm water for my first dose at midnight and woke up at 4am and realized I could breathe, - my nose had cleared! I took another dose before going to sleep, and another around noon. I felt reasonably well to cook dinner on Monday night and went back to work on Tuesday. This remedy is nothing short of a miracle for me and I cannot wait to share it friends and family. Now that I feel better, I am anxious to investigate the rest of your site. ACV will definitely be a regular part of my diet, as I am a chronic sinus sufferer. Antibiotics offer some relief, but do not cure the problem. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for posting this natural remedy. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

ACV strikes again

At the first sign of flu or cold, I drank 2 tablespoons of organic ACV with about 8oz of warm water, squeeze of lemon & honey for taste, every morning for about 3 days. Almost everyone in the household is sick, however, the ones that tried this concoction never did get sick. Thank you to earth clinic for this wonderful recipe!!

p.s. Because of it's many benefits, I have been drinking a cup of ACV "tea" (w/ 2 teaspoons rather than tablespoons) every morning instead of my usual cup of joe. I like to do this before brushing my teeth so I can properly rinse off any acid left over from the ACV - just in case!
