As a child I was plagued with sprains. My grandmother mixed apple cider vinegar with red clay, heated it and made a paste. It was placed on the sprain and then wrapped with strips of an old sheet. After an hour the paste was soaked off with warm water and my sprain was healed.
I have an Apple Cider Vinegar bottle opened and I was wondering if I can store it room temperature or is it better to store in the the refrigerator?? Thanks!!

I have been using Aplle cider vinegar (UK) for years bought in 25ltr plastic containers. No mother forms in the plastic container, shortly after transferring into a glass container a thick mother forms. In small plastic containers no mother forms ether. So, is there some leaching from plastic inhibiting the formation of the mother? If so then it is wise not to keep cider vinegar in plastic containers?
I bought a bottle of organic apple cider vinegar from Trade Joe's. Does it matter if it's refrigerated or not? Does it ever expire? TIA!
Does ACV Lose Nutritional Effect if Frozen?
I just recently started taking a daily maintenance dose of ACV in water. My question is--here in AZ it's a mite warm a good chunk of the year and I must have ice cold water. So I freeze water bottles the night before to take to work.
My question is--does freezing the ACV mixed in water kill the "good stuff" in ACV? I hope not. I could do the ice cube thing, but that's so much more tedious and I already have enough chores to do.

I'm definitely convinced about the numerous benefits of ACV. Because of the calorie content of honey, is it permissible to add part of a Stevia packet to the glass of ACV? As readers here know, stevia is supposedly one of the safest non-sugar sweeteners. It helps the taste a lot, but I wouldn't want to diminish the positive ACV effects. Thanks!
Hi, Few months I googled and found this site for Apple cider vinegar to reduced my trigleceride level. I am 48 and took medicines for reducing. Then I took risk and took one tablespoon daily for 4 months within two months to my & doctor surprise my triglercite level went down.. Thanks for the person who created this site and the contirbutors for sharing their own personal effect and experience.....
It just stopped the the abdominal pain caused by my stomach ulcer. I thought I might have to go on antibiotics. I guess I won't.
I have found a simple treatment for vaginal odor. This is not odor caused by infection! This treatment worked for everyday bacteria related odor. I started taking a bath in apple cider vinegar and noticed my vaginal body odor completely disappeared. This would only last about 2 days so using so many baths was getting expensive! I decided to make wipes. I use fragrance free, natural wipes or you can use paper towels. Add 1 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar with one cup of water and pour into container of wipes! Wipe your entire "downtown" area and let sit 2 or 3 minutes before showering. Wash area as usual. Easy peezy!
To make things even more simple I just decided to make a 50/50 solution in a spray bottle and just spray area before bathing. Repeat as needed. Hope this helps! It's been a life changer for me! 😉😉

ACV consumption can remove iodine from the body, and can result in thyroid problems.
info from cure zone
Warning! I took apple cider vinegar (ACV) with lunch and dinner daily for about four years and developed ever-worsening fatigue. I never put the two together until I came across a book about copper toxicity and zinc deficiency. ACV is stored in copper vessels. Taking it daily can increase your copper levels and subsequently decrease your zinc levels. If your copper levels get high enough, you will develop thyroid and adrenal issues and be plagued with fatigue. Since cutting out the apple cider vinegar and taking a zinc capsule I cannot believe how much better I feel. I can exercise again and not be exhausted for days. I had tried EVERYTHING (dietary changes, medication, supplements) and nothing helped until I added zinc AND eliminated ACV (adding zinc only did not help).
*** THYROID MEDICATION AND APPLE CIDER VINEGAR WARNING!
Deirdre, apple cider vinegar (ACV) is wonderful, but may be you should post a warning for people with thyroid (and may be other conditions) to give a gap of at least 4 hours between taking thyroid medication and ACV, because otherwise ACV seems to interfere with the absorption of thyroid medicine and the results are not what we would like to see. This might also be true for iron supplements.

I had warts, and tried the duct tape with the cotton balls with some success. I started taking a quick swig from the bottle at night and in the morning, and now my hands have cleared up. I have also noticed that when I do take it at night, I don't have heartburn. This is my exp. though.
