Earth Clinic..Your doing a Wonderful Thing for People..Wow..Should be more people like you.

I had a Store in San diego, ca. for 7 years..noticed people coming in with all kind of ailments. So I started to sell and tell the customers about Apple Cider Vinegar. After a while I could read their body language that they were not feeling good.. So I insisted that they buy ACV..Results ..Dissolved kidney stone in 4 days, prostate problem.. could not urinate..4 days system cleared. everything worked normal, migrain headache.. gone 1 day, women have cramps certain time of month.. no cramps, more energy noticed 1 day,arthritic aches and pains ..most gone in a few days,the list goes on and on.. I am told from reading that our cells are mostley potassium.. when we eat too much salt .. the salt make the cells weak and push our bones out of wack.. that why I think people have a lot of back problems.. the minute our cells become healthy, our bones fall back in place, no more back problems.. ACV is mostly potassium..Stop eating ten bananas a day.. just take ACV.
Stay well my friends

I started using acv 2 tsp w/16oz of water sipping throughout the day. I gradually increased to 2 tblsp in 16 oz of water over a period of two weeks. The results have been interesting. I used to yawn a lot, especially while riding in the car. I had a shallow breathing problem. Now, I don't yawn unless I'm sleepy. I also have increased energy and no more acide reflux. I hadn't seen a post about the breathing before so I thought I would share. Great remedy. Balancing the PH in the body makes such good sense. Thanks for the good work EC!

Hi Sara, In reply the ACV doesnt cause premature gray hair if anything it does cause hair to grow faster. I've been drinking ACV for about 4 months now and have not noticed any more gray hair than usual. But my hair does grow quick now. Hope this helps.

I recall someone posting that ACV intake can reduce iodine in the body, that if you take ACV regularly you should supplement with iodine. As iodine is tied to thyroid function, and premature (before age 30) greying of hair is actually one known symptom of thyroid problems, I'd be checking into the need for iodine supplementation when taking ACV regularly.

I take ACV as well as a kelp supplement, along with eating Seaweed Snacks (nori) from a popular health food chain. Would this seem to be enough iodine? I live in the goiter belt so am concerned about this...

Peace, Jacquelynna

As for the white hair take more Vitamin C. Many claim to have reversed the process. I think Ted has some words of wisdom on the subject!

Thanks for this web site and forum. I was diagnosed simultaneously by 2 different doctors for acid reflux and high blood pressure and high cholestrol.

One doctor at the hospital put me on pariet for the reflux, my GP wanted to put me on asprin and statins for life for may BP and Cholestrol.

As I am a coeliac / Celiac I was concerned about both and the effects on my stomach and lymph glands. so I googled and found this site.

In the last fortnight I never took the tablets but took 2 tbs of apple cider vinaegar and whoa my headaches have gone, my indigestion has gone and believe it or not I think my weight is going down!

Thanks to everyone who contributs to this site

Apple Cider Vinegar: I was able to stop anti-acid medications. It helped remove artery plaque. It helped regulate calcium metabolism, helped digestion. It helped my friend fight arthritis and normalize body weight.

Start the day with acv! You may start with one teaspoonful of acv mixed with eight ounces of filtered water. Gradually increase it to two with our meal.

When you feel fatigued or run down in the afternoon, try a mixture of two tablespoonful of acv and one teaspoonful of honey with water. In the evening you may add ginger to honey and acv as a hot tea drink. You can ask for organic acv from any health food store.

I have been taking ACV for two years now (1-2 TBS in 8 oz. water, three times a day.) It has 1) cured a cough I had for three years 2) given me more energy 3) keeps a nice rosy color to my cheeks 4) and has cured sinus infections in hours 5) and helped me keep my weight steady. I will use it forever! I have recommended it to so many people.

I came across this website doing some research for irregular vaginal bleeding and found the benifits that ACV can provide. My husband and myself have been using ACV for four days now 2tbsp with 1/2c water sometimes mixed with the 1/4tsp bs. We love it! It has helped our sinus congestion, sour stomach, weight loss, constipation, over all we feel a lot better with this ACV " as we call it, a natural cure all.

Now that I'm faithfully taking ACV I received an email warning about danger of too much acid in our systems causing cancer... how do we know what is 'too much'? I have noticed a jump in energy and an elevated 'good' mood... so I am going to continue what makes me feel better... and yesterday someone mentioned a rosy glow, which is amusing as I am blessed with great skin... but this acid/cancer connection is a real concern. Ted? Any comment or suggestion? Anyone else? Thanks. This site rocks! Peace.

EC: Apple cider vinegar in fact alkalizes one's pH. Please review the introductory information on the acv main page as well as the Questions and Answers pages for more information on this subject.

Sadly, there is loads of false information planted on the internet about apple cider vinegar!

ACV-Joint Pain/Weight Loss/more:

Im a 42yo wm who was suffering from elbow joint pain and had blood pressure so high it was giving me headaches occasionaly..I was about 195lbs and 6"0 tall so was not alot overweight but just didnt feel right. Because I dont have good insurance I decided in june of 2008 to try ACV to see if it would work for me before going to the doctor.YOU MUST BUY REAL ACV,unpasturized and with the MOTHER> DO Not buy ACV at the grocery store as it will be pasturized and a waste of time.. I went to a local health food store and bought ___ACV with the MOTHER>Im not promoting ___,its the only one Ive tried, Im sure theres other good brands out there. If the ACV you buy is dirty looking and it says it has the MOTHER, then its probably good (do your own research)

Anyway..I started by taking 2tablespoons in a small glass of water twice a day, and within 2 days my joint pain went away and my energy level went way up...This stuff tastes nasty but after you realize how much it is helping you you will get use to it.. I havent had a headache since I started taking ACV,h ave lost 15lbs,and havent had a twinge of pain in any joints... Its been 19 months, Im a much happier and healthier person...Remember Im taking 2 tablespoons, NOT teaspoons, twice a day...once in the morning and mid-afternoon. Dont ignore your doctor if you think you need one,but Im sure this product has changed my health for the better!

After just a few days of taking only 2 tsp of ACV, my acne and dandruff completely cleared up. It has also helped with symptoms of PMS and insomnia, and I now have much more energy from taking it on a daily basis. I do find it is hard on my tooth enamel, so I make sure I sip it through a straw.

As everyone should be I was very skeptical when I read of all the cures acheived with ACV. I started out looking for relief for my partners enlarged prostate. When I kept looking at all the things ACV could do, I said what the heck and tryed it along with him. Well let me just say that I feel like a brand new woman! I have had sever back pain and degenerative disease since I was 11 yrs old. About 6 yrs ago I was in an auto accident that I have had constant neck pain from. More recently, with my age now being 48, I have had knee and hip pain on my right side. After taking ACV in water, 2 tbls in 8 oz, for three days my hip no longer hurt! I decided to follow the recipe better and slowly drink 3 to 4 glasses of the same recipe all day. While at the gym I realized I could move my neck and look over my shoulder with no pain!! When I get up in the morning I no longer have to hang on to the counter when I kneel down to get something from the bottom of the cupboard!! I wake up everyday now PAIN FREE! I can't wait to see what happens next! As for my man, well he see's what it is doing for me and wants to do it too but hates the taste and doesn't have the patients. I have been doing all I can to get him to do it. He will now and again but won't do it every day. Does anyone have any ideas how to make it taste better for him? I am used to it already and really with everything it has done for me wouldn't care how it tasted.Thankyou so so so much for this site! Who would have thought that a little bottle from the grocery store costing all of one dollar could make me feel younger then I ever have!!

Put it in apple juice. Myself and my very picky and perceptive child have no problems taking it this way. It blends right in...no surprise really, "apples to apples" ;) Experiment with different amounts to find the least amount that will disguise the taste enough for you. We drink it with plenty of water alongside.

I have rhinitis allergy, asthma, reflux, hot flushes, hair thining, insomina when I came across your website! you have changed my life. I have definete improvement in all but the reflux (and too early to say if hair loss will improve ) with ACV. It is early days though. I did not think it would work so quickly. Thank you so much. I have taken 2 table spoons of organic ACV in half a glass of water twice dailly for the past week and already noticed a change. Thank you!

I have been suffering from cronic sinusitus for several years now and I have tried everything with no help. When I say everything, belive me, if it is out there, I tried it. I have used every over the counter medicine, nasal sprays, netti pots, heat packs and prescriptions and none helped. It has recently gotten so bad that I developed extremely dark circles under my eyes and asked a dermatologist what I could do to deminish them and they said "nothing". They were wrong! I have not only found relief from my sinus issues, but the dark circles are practically gone in a matter of days. I found your website and thank God for it. I took 1/8th cup of ACV for my sinus problems and that evening, I became very ill that night and instantly thought, it was due to the ACV dose. That night however, I went to bed and again took the ACV the next morning to help with my sinuses. In two days I woke with no congestion for the first time in 7 years!! This is an amazing remedy that has been sitting undiscovered by me in my pantry. I am on my third day of dosing with ACV and am equally excited about the prospect of it helping with my acne issues as well. I was really happy when my sinuses cleared, but am even more excited about the dark circles beginning to lighten. ACV is the one item I will never be without.

I bought the organic apple cidar vinegar and I take it twice a day (1 tbsp in the a.m. with a cup of ice water and the same in the p.m., generally a half hour to an hour before going to bed.) Now since I haven't been taking it on a routine basis, I can't say if I've lost weight, however, my hair dresser told me recently that my hair was growing (I hadn't noticed). I felt less sluggish and my appetite didn't increase. Starting for the New Year, I'm going to drink it twice a day everyday and closely monitor the results and report back. One more thing, at first I did experience a pain in my lower right side in the back but after a few weeks it subsided. I read on this site that that may happen. I stopped drinking it but then after about 2 weeks being off of it, I started drinking it again and didn't experience the pain. Good luck to all and good health to you.

i have tried apple cider vinegar in the past with mixed results. i have diabetes and take insulin. when i started taking ACV before i was taking 1 tablespoon and it really did lower my blood sugar - in fact i had to make sure that i ate enough carbs or it would be too low - like in the 40's. also it was giving me very bad gas. i was taking it in a glass of water 2x a day and my teeth were becoming sensitive.

well, i started taking it again - but this time in a much smaller dose. now i put it in a dropper bottle and take a dropper - approx. 1/2 - 1 teaspoon and i put it in the back of my throat so it doesn't touch my teeth.

this works much better for me and i do get some of the blood sugar lowering effects - but what i really noticed is that in the morning my face is not puffy. it also makes me pee a lot more and i just feel 'cleaner'. it seems like my body is 'clearer' or something. and at this dosage it isn't giving me gas. i do this 2 times a day and maybe i will be able to work up to more eventually - but for now this is helping me.
