I am 58, have had a lifetime of stomach problems - now diagnosed with hiatal hernia/acid reflux, taking omeprazol, 40mg a day, main problem is always have loose stools and worst very sore eosophagus/throat, had biopsy on what looked like Barrets but negative. However, dont like taking pills, tried 2 tbls acv with 1/4 tsp bicarb soda in 1/2 glass water for 5 days lst thing and last thing at night on empty stomach - also did oil pulling - immediately on drinking the remedy my eosophagus/throat hurt even with bicarb added, my mouth which has burned, esp my tongue, for 10 yrs, became even more sore and the "runs" worsened. first I thought it would improve but I couldnt sleep at all, felt agitated and as I have very high BP which medication isnt helping, I decided to go back on the stomach pills. Having read peoples positive results I felt sure acv would help me with my stomach/BP and high cholestorol - I eat a very healthy diet, dont smoke, exercise, am slim, I really dont know what to do next or why this acv works for so many and makes me worse - if anyone has any ideas Id be grateful? Thank you. Jaques
I want to point something about the Baking Soda remedy for increasing the alkalinity of body. Unfortunately, this remedy worked for me in the beginning, as I noticed improved digestion, but then I noticed I came down with a chronic case of Bacterial Vaginosis. A fishy odor coming from the vagina. I have heard, women who are on Birth Control Pill get BV. But I have never used BCPs. Further reading, I found out that Baking Soda, and for that matter most antacids can lead to the depletion of B-vitamins in the body. (including Folic Acid & B12). And no wonder Folic Acid is recommended as a cure for BV. I am taking Folic Acid ( 1 mg) and B-complex now, but the fishy odor is not gone completely! I am really stuck with this odor which I NEVER had before. So could it be, my folic acid levels are depleted and I am unable to get them to a healthy level. As of now, I am suspecting Baking Soda has done this to me. And I am abstaining from using it anymore. I would be interested to hear what other female users have to say about this.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge on earthclinic.com. It has helped me in many ways. I have been doing the 2tbs acv 1/4 baking soda in water for almost three weeks. It has helped my migraines and joint aches as well as helped with my overall mental well being. However a side effect I have is that since taking this I have become increasingly tired. So much that I can not get out of bed or feel safe to drive or work. I began taking this remedy to try to help in regulating my menstrations and hormones. I've begun taking B-complex hoping this would give me added energy but it has not. I am wondering if I should lower dosages of acv or stop this remedy entirely. Thank You
I have a few questions in regards to the remedies suggested on the earth clinic website: 1. have been taking ACV alone without any problem until adding baking soda which causes abdominal pain throughout the night...
This is the 2nd time I'm posting this question. As well, I sent a message to Ted, and I haven't gotten any responses yet. I started taking ACV & baking soda about 2 weeks ago, and it IMMEDIATELY stopped my acid reflux (for which my symptom is a burning sore throat)!! Wonderful! However, I have Ulcerative Colitis (which is in remission) and have been experiencing diarrhea. I took the ACV * baking soda first thing in the AM , then had my low-acid coffee, and about an hour later, had severe "D". My question is, could the ACV be causing my diarrhea.?? I don't know what else it could be? I'm concerned that my UC might be flaring up, yet, it's helping my acid reflux...
Hi i recently discovered your website and found it very informative. My aunt always used to talk about the goodness in Apple Cider Vinegar. When I read about using it with baking soda I tried it and found I really liked it in fizzy form. However, in about two weeks I began to suffer from the driest skin I have ever had! A friend who is into natural remedies told me it was the baking soda that was causing this. I immediately quit adding it to the ACV and using it to clean my face daily and began to re-hydrate myself. Now a few days later I still have some itching of the skin but it is improving. Was I using too much? I was taking about 1/4-1/2 a teaspoon in my ACV 3x a day. I would like to say that I noticed an immediate sensation of well being and boost in my energy as soon as I started with the ACV. I'm going to keep on taking it, even though I won't be using the baking soda any more! Gail
Baking soda and ACV Tonic
Well, I am not one for writing reviews on products. Normally just try it and either I enjoy or dislike and move on. But I can honestly say I felt the difference immediately. I am not sure if it's mental or true, but either way I am loving it!! As I was drinking the baking soda/ACV tonic I felt some sort of clarity that was taking place. Once finished my nose was a little runny, basically it was becoming un-stuffy. I blew my nose and boom....I was all clear!! I am currently feeling a tingly sensation, a sense of calm and again Clarity. I will continue to take daily and begin my journey towards an alkaline body. Thank you.
I started using Ted's recipe (ACV and baking soda) yesterday afternoon in hopes to get rid of a bad sinus infection I've had for the past couple of weeks. I mixed 1 Tbsp of ACV with 8 oz of water and 1 tsp of baking soda. The heaviness in my head and the sinus congestion went away in minutes! I will continue to take ACV with the baking soda. I will keep everyone updated on my progress.
I have been taking 2 tablesoons of ACV (with mother) and 1/4 tsp of Baking soda with about 1/2 cup of warm water for about two weeks twice a day for general health reasons. This morning I woke up and was struck by how soft my skin felt. I also think I may be experiencing less water retention. I had what I think was AWFUL candida die off symptoms for about a week though, chills, mucus you name it it was AWFUL but it seems to be dying down.
I tried the baking soda and apple cider vinegar treatment and it is working great! I finally feel good about my skin, and can wear all my sun dresses again. I am so glad I found this site. THANK YOU!
Skin Care - Dry Scaly Patches: I had some dry scaly skin on my nose and about for an inch or so on either side of my nose. I have been using a mixture of ACV, Baking Soda, and Water for a about a week and a half. I use about 1/4 tablespoon of BS and ACV till the bubbling stops. then I add just enough water to complete filling a small cup About 3 inches high, 1/2 full. I wash my face with this and leave it on for about a minute and then rinse it off. My skin on my nose and by my nose is now very soft and is no longer dry. I also found that when shaving with a razor that this mixture lubricated my skin and I did not get any cuts. I pieced this mixture together from reading about several items from this site. I love www.earthclinic.com
Re: ACV and baking soda: I've lost track of exactly how long but it should be about 3weeks that I have been trying ACV...I first tried it w/water and Cayenne Pepper..thinking of reduction in weight loss and HBP, i can say that i feel better not as tired as usual (not running any marathons yet) and I do see a diffence in my skin. And to add to it i've begun to wash with backing soda and water, and i must say that my face does feel smoother and not as oily. My question is how do i figure the right recipe for me?...i see so many variations of it. I would like to work on my blood pressure, weight and blood suger levels.
ACV cures my bloating and hunger pain. Baking soda did wonders for me cure my acid reflux, bad breath, and sinus. I also use ACV and baking soda for my face as others mentioned on this site. My face looks great without foundation. No dark circles and puffy eyes. The information on this website save me from many health problems. Thank you so much to all the people who contribute to this awesome site and a Big thanks goes to Ted in Bangkok who seems to have such wealth of knowledge.
Hi. Just felt compelled to write into the site and report on my ACV experience. I'm 42 and have suffered from a variety of ailments from the not too serious (acne) to the more serious (neurological). I started taking ACV "Ted's Way" with a bit of baking soda, 2TBS/serving, 2X a day (sorry, just can't do 3x a day due to my schedule). My skin is looking really wonderful, so much so that people have commented on how healthy and radiant I look! Since I was 9 I've had very oily skin, and now it seems to have normalized, neither oily nor dry. I'm pretty thin to start with, so weight loss was not really an issue for me. But I've noticed that I've definitely thinned out a bit more around the middle, and I feel more "lithe" than I've felt in awhile. My boyfriend thinks I"m nuts, but I think he's nuts with his stinky lecithin and yeast. : ) I enjoy making my fizzy "science experiment", and I make sure to brush my teeth afterwards, just to be on the safe side. I take it after meals so it's wise to brush my teeth then, anyway.
I have noticed so many apple cider vinegar posts and many having trouble and bad reactions.
Our method has never caused a bad reaction or problems. Ted says if you are ill ACV would create a more acidic environment in a body. Using ACV with baking soda is a way to prevent problems and build a healthy alkaline environment..
2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar 1/2 tsp baking soda in a glass let fizz add 1/2 glass of water and drink 1/2 hour after food 2x a day. 5 days out of 7.
Purchase a pocket alkalinity meter about $50 online. Keep shooting for 7 to 7.2 on meter from morning urine. Safest way to ingest ACV plus the strong taste of vinegar is diminished greatly. I also use the ACV and baking soda for headaches and it can correct the runs and constipation both.
Here is where I learned. Teds remedies here on earth clinic. We have done this and other alkalinity drinks for more than 5 years. All to our benefit and health.
