Better But With Side Effects

hello all!

I am a 30 yr. old female who is overweight and recently had gall stones. I also have iron defienciency anemia. My family has started eating organic and all natural 3 yrs. ago. I recently started researching all natural cures as i don't believe in going to doctors unless its absolutly neccessary. I read about apple cider vinegar and blackstrap molasses. i started the blackstrap molasses first (2 tbs daily) and the numbness i was feeling in my fingertips and legs has went away. I am still waiting for my menstrual cycle to come to see if it will ease the heavy bleeding. but it has eliminated my stomach cramping (that felt like labor contractions) that I usually have monthly.

But this is about the apple cider vinegar. let me tell you it really works! started by taking 2 tsp. once a day in 8 oz. of water. 3 days later i had extreme pain in my ear and my jaw that has yet to go away. I also have extreme itching everywhere. That doesn't sound good does it? but it is good cause i know that it is my body getting rid of toxins. I have been peeing like crazy and having regular bowel movements without straining( which is the opposite of the consipation i was having from taking iron pills).

I think for all of you who are all sufferring from itching or jaw pain etc. should up your water intake. I started drinking a gallon of water a day and the itching is going away. I now take 2 tbs of acv chased by a 16 oz. glass of water in the morning,then proceed to drink water throughout the day and i feel great! I have more energy(no more sluggishness)and i know my 5 kids are happy to see that!

I plan to keep taking ACV despite the side effects(unless it brings more harm than good) to see if it will aid in my weightloss.

Also i have been using the ACV on my hair and it has smoothed the cuticle and made my hair less frizzy!

EC: Thank you Shar! Your feedback has been cross-posted to the blackstrap molasses section.

Better But With Side Effects

I have been drinking one tablespoon of apple cidar vinegar in a glass of water with i tablespoon honey. I have seen some benefits. I do not get colds and my skin is much better but I find I have a hoarseness in my voice. I had tongue cancer and have had radiation to the mouth. I was looking for a remedy to help with my dry mouth.
