Apple Cider Vinegar

red apple fruits

A nurse that I knew once, told me that the best way to treat a sore throat was to fill a glass with warm water, add a few teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to it, stir the mixture, gargle the mixture then swallow. I tried it and it worked. I have used this ever since for fast effective treatment whenever I have a sore throat. It kills any pain almost instantly and the treatment can be repeated if needed.

The substance has to be APPLE cider vinegar and it has to contain what is termed “the mother”. This is a cloudy substance that is removed from the vinegar if it is filtered. Anyone who intends to try this remedy must ensure that their apple cider vinegar is unfiltered and that it contains “the mother”. Apple cider vinegar with “the mother” is easy to find at large grocery stores.

Apple cider vinegar has many health benefits.

Hiccups. One teaspoon (straight)  can cure hiccups

Weight loss. Apple cider vinegar can help you lose weight. The theory is that the acid reacts with the metabolism to aid weight loss.

Dandruff. Once again, the pH of the apple cider vinegar is supposed to react with the skin to kill the enzyme responsible for dandruff.

ACV for energy.  Amino acids in the apple cider vinegar react with the fatiguing acids that the body builds up when subjected to exercise and stress and cancel out those acids that cause the fatigue. The apple cider vinegar also contains potassium and some enzymes that help with fatigue.

There are many more uses for apple cider vinegar. I can say without doubt that it works with sore throats but for the rest?, you will have to experiment for yourself. The good thing is that even if it does not work for you, it will not do any harm.
