Apple cider vinegar is extremely acidic and it pickles the liver. The liver cells struggle to stay balanced and perform as they fight for oxygen, because vinegar steals oxygen from the bloodstream and the liver. ACV (like any vinegar) comes into the stomach extremely acidic. The liver must put a halt to it immediately and use its every reserve to try to alkalize or at least neutralize it. The ACV fights back, and its acidic nature is so strong that the stomach loses the battle many times over. Instead of alkalizing your gut, it does the opposite. It weakens hydrochloric acid and breaks down gastric juices and heads down the pike still acidic. It's basically an assault on the stomach and intestinal tract. For more information on the effects of apple cider vinegar on the liver, see book "Liver rescue" from Medical Medium Anthony William.
I used apple cider vinegar for years and then I noticed my legs and ankles hurting, I thought it was me just getting old. I stopped taking the acv and the pain went away. When I tried it again the pain came back, so I know it was the acv.
For 2 mos. I was drinking 1 tlbs. of ACV and 1 tlbs. of Maple Syrup in a glass of water, daily. I loved the way it made me feel but then I started noticing my hair was falling out. Has anyone had any issues with this happening?
I was taking ACV for a number of health conditions. I was taking it at 1/2 to 1 tsp in 8 oz water and 1/4 tsp baking soda and a little honey. I started having uncontrollable and very painful exploding diarrhea. It was like the drink was going straight through me so I switched to the capsules of AVC thinking it may have been hard on my stomach but the same thing happened. I love the way ACV helps my depression and blood pressure and pains but I can't handle the diarrhea. What other forms are out there and what else can I use or do?
I have started taking ACV 2 tsp in warm water on an empty stomach and have noticed my urine staring to smell bad. Is this a normal side effect?
I recently started drinking the ACV detox and my skin is breaking out and my discharge has a light scent of apple cider vinegar..is that normal? Does anyone know why or how to stop it?
After drinking apple vinegar with mother, I was seriously constipated for two days like stones.
For some reason, ACV aggravated my constipation and made it worse.
I would just like to quick add that yes Apple Cider Vinegar does really seem to help some people, it is soooo the opposite for me. *It is not one size fits all! * In my home 2 of us do NOT handle Apple Cider Vinegar well & the other 2 of us are fine & helped. Just because you, your relative, or your neighbor has success with Apple Cider Vinegar does not mean that all others will. FYI ours is the organic kind, in a glass bottle, & of course with the "mother". Also worth noting, Apple Cider Vinegar was bad for the health of one our black labs, but our other lab is perfectly fine with it. ---My negative reactions (that I am aware of) are as follows: my mineral count gets all messed up, my PH actually drops pretty badly, my body temp drops significantly, joints get very painful, general unwell feeling, can be constipating, & some serious tummy/gut pain. It is a shame, because I want it to help with x/y/z, but I wind up worse.
So..someone suggested me to take apple cider vinegar in the morning (empty stomach) for reducing belly fat and I started doing that since last couple of weeks. Today I missed to take it and what I realized is that my ankle pain is very mild today than what it was yesterday and day before. (I have mild ankle pain from a year or so.) Yesterday, the pain was more and I was able to notice it when I started driving. That's why I started searching on google to see if Apple Cider Vinegar is responsible for my increasing my ankle pain. But everywhere on internet I see it reduces such pain.
Confused.. I will try to monitor for next few days and I guess that is the only way I will get the right answer..
I have been taking apple cidar vinegar with lemon juice and cinnamon and honey and at first I would go to the bathroom first thing, but now I feel bloated and nasuaes during the day especially in the morning. Is this normal or what?
Two weeks ago I was diagnosed with calcium deposits in my shoulders. I began using apple cider vinegar to resolve the crystals. Yesterday I suddenly became extremely dizzy and went to the hospital. I was told I had benign positional vertigo. Could the apple cider vinegar have released crystals in my ear?
I have been upping my probiotics. I use about one bottle of kombucha (which I adore) ever other day and varying amounts of raw ACV (which I also like). I have been getting hives whenever I use them now. Hives doesn't seem like a common detox reaction. My scalp is especially affected, my waist, and then just spots here and there. I have had dandruff and itchy oily scalp for years. Recently I tried a different shampoo which appears to have eliminated the dandruff and oil. It isn't even a dandruff shampoo. I like using ACV in place of soap in the shower and to condition my hair.
After using ACV for six weeks, twice a day I mixed a teaspoon with soda water and really enjoyed it. I lost weight as I was not as hungry but I did develop itchy rash on my torso and worse, bleeding from the bowel and increased vaginal bleeds. I'm hoping now I've stopped the ACV, the bleeding will also stop as my HB levels are now quite low and doctors are concerned. Scopes to follow.
Apple Cider Vinegar
I have been taking about 1 tablespoonful with lemon and (occasionally honey), warm water and a little grape juice in the morning. Always feel well with it. However recently I got overly keen and applied it straight to my hair/scalp, no water, and left on for hours. Not a good idea I think.
I have begun losing hair each time I brush/comb and never used to do so. After 6 weeks hair feels quite thin and very itchy on the scalp at the back. This might be a detox reaction so not too worried about that.
I am going to stop for a month to gauge reactions and if I continue to consume I shall take much smaller amounts. Otherwise generally healthy for my age. Did anybody else notice any hair loss directly attributable to ACV?
