Dear Earth Clinic,
Thanks so much for your website. It is priceless. One question about ACV -- is it just as effective eating it with olive oil in a salad, or does it work better/faster in water? Thanks again for a great resource!
There's no harm whatsoever in taking the vinegar straight or in less water than suggested above. In fact, I take mine either straight, or I will put the ACV in a tablespoon or two of water and down it in a single gulp. (Sometimes to sweeten it a bit, I'll put in a couple drops of liquid stevia. If you go this route, just make sure that you rinse out your mouth with clean water b/c you don't want the ACV to wear down the enamel on your teeth.
Also (and perhaps most important of all), be sure to purchase an ACV that is unrefined - meaning that it is raw/unpasteurized and with the "mother" still in it ... And preferably organic. The "mother" is the natural fermentation base that allows the apple cider to become vinegar. Always shake up the bottle before you pour the vinegar in order to get those wonderful enzymes, beneficial bacteria, and great nutrients all mixed together.
WRT your own allergy issues, you might also try finding a local honey source and take a small amount each day. (Some take 1 tsp, others 1Tbsp. ) Honey from a local source will have the pollens in your area, and this will allow your body to become accustomed them, naturally.
Can I use the heinz apple cider vinegar in the absence of _____ brand with the mother. We don't have _____ brand in the Philippines.
Thank you, antonia

I am giving this stuff a try (acv and honey) and it hurts so bad that I may overdo the treatment. Last couple of days I've done the Apple Cider Vinegar concoction a few times a day, and it seems to be better for a short time then rebounds back, so I take it that it is not a fast cure, so here I go for a couple days fasting food and drinking this stuff, I don't want the hurt to come back, so I am drinking about 2 cups water, 2 Tbsps _____s, and half of a tsp of local honey. If I do this every hour and lots of plain water in between, is that too much acv???? I also got the neti pot things together and will be starting that every hour after I get done with this..... Any other suggestions?.... Warnings????
Can you take ACV every day forever? Or should you only take it when you have an acute symptom?
With all the benefits I see for it, I'm wanting to know if I can just take it always? What about my children and pets? I would be terrified to stop it with the horrendous health problems we have had in this family and the relief the ACV has brought us.
Thank you so much to this site and all the contributors.
Does anyone know if ACV contains salicylates?
I have tried many of the recipies posted here and by far the best is to mix the Apple Cider Vinegar with apple juice. Having said that I still can't stand the taste. I had to stop because it was just too hard for me to drink. It has been almost a week and I can still taste it in my mouth. All my food tastes funny and I have a rotton taste in my mouth all the time. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone have any suggestions to get my taste buds back to normal?
I read on this website also, that applying the Apple Cider Vinegar to the underarms helps control body odor. I also read that you rinse but do NOT use soap. Can anyone tell me why that is? This stuff is so stinky to me....
Thank you friends for any information you may have to help. :-)
Could you tell me, if the ph of a good apple cider is 2.5 or so, then how can this be good for trying to keep you PH level alkaline, what happens internally for this to be able to happen.
Thank you, Gary
So I started drinking the ACV in water two days ago and I've since had terrible gas. ????????????
I recently got a physical and showed I had raised triglycerides everything else was fine. So I started first to change my diet then I wanted to begin Apple cider vinegar cure Ted speaks of. 2 tablespoons of Acv(Organic) 1/4 teaspoon of Baking soda in a glass of water. I've only been doing this in the morings for now along with good eating habits. I'm on my 2nd week of this treatment and feel like my stomach stays very warm all day. Its starting to bother me somewhat. Feels like acid reflux or heartburn setting in... any advice will help.
thank you in advance!!!

It keeps Amazing me, how many people do not know the Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar.. A tenant of mine gave me a Jarvis book in 1994.. I read that book to become healthier.. It opened my eyes.. To Better Health for pennies per day.. I have been promoting ACV ever since.
The ACV book that Deirdre published has been a big help.. I work close with a Temple in Thailand were I now am semi retired. , . Yes, promoting ACV.. But I think that everyone should read up on ACV.. I ordered 9 ACV Deirdre's book to be sent to the Temple for their Library.. I also Had Amazon send 9 of Jarvis book.. Then I contacted the BEST Organic Apple cider people in USA (I think better then _____s) They will be sending 55 gal. Drum to this Thai Temple.. Who will be distributing it in Thailand.. Just bring in your container. We will fill it up with Health for you and your loved ones.
I hope that this letter gets printed.. So many I have sent, never gets to your eyes..
Much Love and caring, Alfred
Hello,This may seem like an odd question but I suffer from seasonal allergy. I always smell this foul smell in my nose. Other people can smell it too, its not bad breath but due to allergies. I read about mixing apple cider vinegar with water and dipping cotton ball and putting it in your nose, by inhaling that, the smell would go away. But my question is, is it safe to inhale vinegar directly? Please help.
I think its important to note that when I'm reading articles or opinions on ACV that it is not clear that individuals are aware that ACV stands for Raw unfiltered unpasteurised Apple Cider Vinegar, (containing Mother) which is quite different to Apple Cider vinegar in the supermarkets.
Please ensure that readers are aware of this difference. Regards
Hello there, I am a big fan of natural medicine vs. conventinal and have just started to drink the ACV in water mixture for what I believe is a stomach ulcer along with poor digestion in general. I just had a small amount of it to try it out, and I felt a little bit of discomfort/burning, but nothing unbearable. Once it calmed down a little though, I did notice I felt more energized and had a more uplifting mood and I just felt a lot better in general, it was amazing! I'm not sure if this was unrelated or a placebo effect, but I did feel a whole lot better in a matter of minutes after drinking it.
I was just curious, the instructions state to drink it 3 times a day before meals, but is there a problem with drinking it during or after meals? Or before bed time?
And also, does ACV help regulate blood pressure or does it just lower it? I do experience low blood pressure/arrythmias at times and I wouldn't want to cause any harm in that sense.
Hi I was just wondering does it matter if it's distilled apple cider vinegar or does it have to be regular? Or is organic better? and the _____'s brand is that at whole foods or at a local store you can buy from?
