  • Anna

    I have been using Apple Cider Vinegar for dry cough. I have to say; it tastes awful, but WORKS. I’d tried several cough mixtures (which my Dr later told me are all useless for a DRY cough) but Apple Cider Vinegar, whilst not curing it, did help A LOT. I was able to sleep through the night for the first time in days.

    Way to go Apple Cider Vinegar. Ad DRY Cough Remedy to the list of cures ACV can help with.

    This is probably a stupid question, about using it after the shampooing. Does that mean one should mix it with water, or not?

    • Pablo

      If you're going to use ACV to treat skin conditions such as acne or others, dilute to 50/50 with purified to prevent serious irritation!



  • Corinna

    I've also used this to replace my hair conditioner and for hair growth. I've had excellent results. My hair was not growing and now is and has been brought back to life!

    I love Lipton's peach flavored tea. In 1/2 gallon of it, I put 1/4 cup honey and 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar and drink it as my main drink every day. I have a microwave teapot, and I use it to help mix it up, melting the honey. I can't say for sure the reason, but blood pressure, cholesterol, and fluid retention have all improved. I know that the tea has sugar in it, but I do not use artificial sweeteners, and I like sweet tea, sweeter than just the honey makes it. I love the drink, and all the ingredients have possible health helps, so I drink it all the time.

    I can truly say that ACV is a wonder in a bottle. I was introduced to it by hair dresser, I used it for my high cholesterol and waistline. I have noticed that my high cholesterol has reduced and I am losing the weight around my waistline. I used the Bragg Raw Unfiltered Organic ACV. You won't know until you try it.

    I woke up yesterday with a very bad earache and sore throat on the left side. I'm usually very healthy and rarely get things like this. I remembered reading about using ACV for strep throat so put 2 Tsp of ACV in a glass of water and drank it 2x/day. This morning I'm back to normal. Guess it does work.

      Try a tablespoon of Braggs or Spectrum vinegar, unfiltered, in a small glass , add a teensy bit of unprocessed honey, not from China, a sprinkle cyanne pepper in it and drink this concoction every morning. In order for vinegar to do its jobs, you must see bits and pieces floating around in the bottle. I prefer Braggs. I got a very snotty cold for 3 days and was back to normal in no time this winter. I've been plagued with sinus infections and swollen glands and sore throats every winter except this one. I can't remember not having at least 4 of them every winter, except this one. I've researched every immune boosting supplement on the market and settled with vinegar, elderberry syrup, and vitamin C, reishi mushrooms, garlic capsules, and they worked!! However I take a lot more on a regular basis, flax, fish, CoQ 10, chlorella and more.

    A trusted friend and his 'vegie' wife introduced me to a honey and apple cider beverage. Mix 1/8 cup cider vinegar with 1/8 cup (local honey, so you know it is not from China) and pure water to make a pint of liquid. Drink at room temperature. Ice will cause the honey to harden.

    This balances the body's pH, removes toxins and is a pretty tasty alternative to any soft drink.
