First, one point must be made. Apple Cider Vinegar kills every germ, bacteria, and virus ON CONTACT!!!So if you travel into a foreign country where the water might not be the healthiest, and concuming the food there might also be seriously questionable, take a tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar before ingesting any food. If you do develope food poisoning from food or water, throw down just one tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar and within a short time the miseries will be gone. Too strong to just gulp it down? Take a cup of very hot water and add one tablespoon of honey and add to it three tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar. Stir until the honey is dissolved, then add a little cool water so you do not burn your mouth, and drink it. For a sore throat - make the same mixture of hot water, honey and cider vinegar, and then SIP - DO NOT GULP IT DOWN. The sore throat will be gone overnight, because every time you SIP the mixture, it washes down your throat and kills more and more of the infection. At first you will feel the sting of it working, but quickly that goes away and the throat begins to feel much, much better. For a good and sound night's sleep? Slowly drink the mixture and go to bed. Why? Your chemistry is different between first thing in the morning and at bedtime, so at night the drink will help you achieve a peaceful and sound sleep, and then in the morning drink it and it will give you a shot of energy! I hope all this helps someone. It has helped me for the past fifteen years.
