Apple Cider Vinegar

By February 14, 2008

Follow me on:

It can help with weight loss, calm indigestion, kill lice and lower cholesterol . . . or can it? See what WebMD.com has to say about apple cider vinegar; then, weigh in with your own thoughts about the much-hyped elixir.

Do you think apple cider vinegar can do all of the things that people claim? Is it a proven part of your health regiment? Or do you think it's all just crazy talk? Share your thoughts!

When visiting relatives in the mid-west, I get eaten alive by chiggers. The site of the bites swell and itch like crazy. I’ve taken hot baths with a cup of apple cider vinegar and it offered some relief. I suspect that the heat of the water had more to do with it than the vinegar. Also, taking an antihistimine works a lot better! I do use apple cide vinegar to make salad dressings, but prefer the taste (if not the cost) of balsamic vinegar.

I do use white vinegar as a drain cleaner (with baking soda and followed by boiling water), to remove static from clothes (1/4 cup to the rinse cycle of the washing machine), to remove hard water deposits on shower heads (full strength overnight – careful not to get in your eyes!), to clean sink spigots (wipe with 1/2 vinegar, 1/2 water mixture) and to clean my toothbrushing “rinse” cup (after running through the dishwasher, wipe vinegar on inside of the cup).

I do not use it to clean tile as I’ve been cautioned that the acid (vinegar is about 3 on the Ph scale) in vinegar can ruin your grout. All of the floors in my house, two walk-in shower stalls, and my kitchen counters are tiled and I’d hate to ruin any grout. Anyone else hear that vinegar is damaging to grout?

I’m not much for the smell or taste of vinegar, but it does do some pretty impressive stuff.

I used to get sunburns a lot in the summer until I realized I’m not one of the lucky people who tans well, and the baking soda / vinegar bath actually works. I remember hating it, but it definitely takes the burn away.

I like vinegar for cleaning, but I make sure to stick with white vinegar. I’ve never actually tried yellow or apple cider vinegar, but it seems like it would stain.

I would ignore everything you read on WebMD. Its purpose, first and foremost, is to keep you in the cage of the pharmacuetical industry. The article on ACV is typical. When it says it is “unproven,” it refers to medical industry testing, as though that was the undisputed standard for verifcation. Medical testing has brought us such wonder as Vioxx and the rest of the TV adds that list the poisonous side effects over lilting music. (Would you buy a car if their ads whispered that the wheels might fall off at high speed?).

ACV is one of a number of alternative, pro-active measures I have taken since breaking free from the pharmo prison. My digestion is excellent, my bowels are smooth and regular, my energy levels are high, and my skin is clear. It is harder to tell how much toxin is removes from my body, but I will give it much more credit than I will the vicious, tyrannical medical industry. Ask yourself whether it is in the best interest of pharmo corporate heads and stock holders for you to be healthy and without need for drugs, then you will understand the “cautious” tone of discussions on NON-PATENTED health remedies.

AVC Organic has helped with hair growth, clearing of my skin, and made me feel so much better in a short period of time. You will find it helpful and with time the taste isn’t so bad after all….just delute it and feel the goodness……

Do not care what the “experts” think. I feel better, I am less hungry and my hypoglycemia bothers me less, among many other symptoms of health. A+++ rating. I take 2 solid pills in the morning and 2 at night.

I agree with Bill T’s comments. After seeing first-hand how government regulators and political actions work hand-in-hand to protect the interests of corporate America, I have little faith in much of the so-called official rhetoric from the big pharmaceutical companies and medical community, which they control via their funded studies.

I have high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol levels. I have been on prescription medication for several years and over the past few years I noticed a general decline in my overall health. I didn’t have any energy, I gained weight, and I began to notice an increase in the normal aches and pains of attributed to daily activities.

About a week ago, I began taking 2 teaspoons of ACV diluted with 16 ounces of water before each meal. I have already noticed a change in general health. I have more energy and feel better. I began exercising and noticed that my aches and pains have diminished.

Although I plan to continue taking prescription medications for now, I am looking forward to realizing the benefits of ACV over a longer period of time.

I’m another who doesn’t place much faith in western medicine. Aren’t these the same people who 20 years ago would have had us all convinced eating eggs would kill us? I have used vinegar and sauerkraut for years to aid digestion and most cultures around the world have these foods as a staple in their diets.

One more great thing to use vinegar for — when my dog gets a “hot spot” and starts biting at her skin, we wipe the area with vinegar two or three times a day. Even if the area is bleeding, it doesn’t bother her and she heals in two or three days.

Well today is my first day to research this AVC. I happened to be looking up a recipe and it called for cider vinegar, another user had a review at the bottom of the recipe that said cider vinegar was different than apple cider vinegar. I thought she was wrong but I wanted to know for sure before I decided to make this recipe, I had to find out if the Apple cider vinegar in my closet was the same as what the recipe was calling for.

That is when I came across tons of site with AVC for medical purposes. To my surprise!!!

I went to the doc 2 days ago, they took my blood pressure 3 times and the nurse was like flipping out. Asking me if I was on blood pressure meds. NO. Nothing. Well it was 160/90.

I had no idea what that meant… so i came home and looked it up. WOW!!!!. And they let me walk out the door.

I think it is strange to come upon this AVC that can lower blood pressure after 2 days finding out that mine was that high.

I’m going to give it a shot. (I do go back to doc in 2 weeks, so I’ll find out then what my blood pressure is after using AVC)

Hopefully it will work! I hate taking meds!

I’M am a firm believer of ACV Cures. This treatment has stopped my hair fall. Western medicine is all for the money. I agree with Bill T.

Of COURSE WebMD and all the slaves of Western Medicine ( doctors, drug companies, pharmacists) are going to discredit something that God gave us out of the Earth that is far better for us and TREATS the causes rather than the symptoms!!! Do NOT take Nexium or any of that other crap because you will be hooked. They only study drugs that will make a person become a slave to them. Antidepressants, Acid Reflux Meds, Blood Pressure Meds, Diabetes Meds, ETC. ITS ALL THE SAME POISON DESIGNED TO KEEP U HOOKED AND THEM PAID!
ACV works. People have used it for thousands of years. The proof is there.
