I use Cider vinegar all the time,,,, never tired it with honey tho,,, may have to, as just mixed in water is kinda hard to get use to.
I will say, it will give a boost, and make you feel better for a while.
Lots of history behind it, and is a winner for my stash of supplies.

An alternative version is apple cider vinegar and molasses.
Molasses contains much of the residue from extracting sugar from sugar cane juice, so it has plenty enzymes, minerals, etc.
I take some ACV and molasses in other things both morning and night.

Not to gross anyone out but the apple cider vinergar may also help with skin fungus, etc. and parasites which a lot of docs do not seem to think exist, but which are probably the result of fooling around with mother nature putting nematodes into the soil, mutations from GM and etc.
- Yowbarb     To look on the bright side apple Cider vinergar is pretty cheap. Stock up!!!

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR DOSAGES AND RECIPES

Revised 10/01/2008:

As you know, Earth Clinic has recommended the standard 2 teaspoons in 8 oz of water 3x a day for years now. For more severe conditions, we recommended 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in 8 oz of water 3x a day. We now think that less vinegar, more water is an optimal way of taking apple cider vinegar daily unless you are treating an acute condition like acid reflux, cough, bronchitis, or sore throat (in which case the stronger concoction of 2 TBS ACV to 8 OZ of water 3x a day recipe is suggested).

For daily maintenance, weight loss and pH balancing, we now suggest the following:

2 teaspoons of organic apple cider vinegar
16 ounces of water
Sip, don't chug!

We suggest 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in 16 ounces of water that you'll sip throughout the day, rather than drinking the whole concoction at once 3 times a day. You will be keeping your pH in a constant, alkalized state by sipping this highly diluted dosage. Usually 1-2 tall glasses of the concoction are all you'll need each day.

If you drink a lot of water throughout the day, consider adding just a splash of apple cider vinegar to your glass/container each time you fill it up, rather than drinking the one, 16 oz glass of acv and water mentioned above.

For the record, we are not big fans of adding baking soda to apple cider vinegar, nor are we fans of adding any kind of sweetener to the acv/water solution. The baking soda works great for some people, but causes severe side effects in others.

Also, we know the Bragg brand is the most popular apple cider vinegar on the market, but we've had just as good results using Whole Foods' organic and Trader Joe's organic apple cider vinegar.


02/17/2009: Stacie from Apple Valley, CA replies: "I saw that Trader Joe's brand was recommended on this site, however their ACV is NOT raw, it's pasteurized, which kills the beneficial enzymes..."

----------------------------------------------------------
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR RECIPES

Standard Dosage: 2 teaspoons of ACV in 8 oz of water. Add honey to taste.
Acute Conditions: 2 tablespoons of ACV in 8 oz of water. No honey.

Note: 2 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar may be too much apple cider vinegar for some people . We suggest you start with the standard dosage and see how your body responds to a teaspoon or two of acv. If all goes well, you can up the dosage over time if you feel a need arise.

----------------------------------------------------------

ADDITIONAL EARTH CLINIC RECIPES

In summer months: Add 1/4 cup of ACV to a quart of water. Add ice cubes. Drink this on a hot summer day, especially before working out. Your body will feel very cleansed.

In winter months: 2 TBLS of ACV in a mug filled with hot water 3x day. Are you used to drinking tea or coffee during your long commute to work? Try this instead -- you will feel energized but not adrenalized. Add a few shakes of cayenne pepper if you REALLY want an energy lift!

To detox: 2 TBLSP of organic ACV in a 1 or 2 Liter filtered water bottle (ie Smart Water, Evian, etc). 2 TBLSP = 1/8th cup. You can add more vinegar than this amount, however, make sure you dilute it with plenty of water. Do not add a sweetener. Drink this solution throughout the day. The solution will be cleansing your system and kidneys all day long. That's the point.

There are several things you will notice within a day or two of drinking Apple Cider Vinegar: your allergies will disappear, your face will have a healthy & youthful glow, you will look & feel more VITAL, you will have consistent energy, and you will more easily digest your food.

We believe that apple cider vinegar is probably the best (and cheapest) detoxifier for the body. As such, it is should be considered a critical component to the fountain of youth!

Replies04/15/2009: Kristen from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA replies: "I have a question. Why do you NOT recommend putting any sweetener in the ACV? I was taking 2 tablespoons in a bottle of water for my allergies for the last 2 days, and could barely get it down. While my allergies went away (amazing!), I do not think I can make myself drink this every single day without something to help the taste. Today I started with 2 teaspoons of ACV in 16 ounces of water, as you recommend, but I added a tablespoon of organic Grade B maple syrup, which helps a lot. Is there anything you DO recommend that helps the flavor, without detracting from the benefits? Thanks so much for this extremely helpful website."


EC: Just trying to avoid adding more sugar to one's diet! However, most readers on this site seem to add one kind of sweetener or another.

04/16/2009: Kramer from Richmond, VA replies: "I know this seems strange but I don't mind the taste of ACV. I've been taking a tablespoon of honey and a few minutes later a tablespoon of ACV. The honey coats my throat and it tastes fine. Is there a problem with taking it all at once rather than drinking it with water? It's so much quicker!"


EC: Many acv "old timers" report taking it straight!

04/16/2009: Georgie from Grove City, Ohio USA replies: "I always add my ACV to tomato juice instead of water. It tastes way better plus I get an easy way to get a serving of healthy vegetables too! And I don't add sweetener. Being a diabetic, that solves alot of problems."


04/26/2009: Montylyn from San Antonio, TX replies: "Thanks for the advise given on how to take ACV.V-8 is what I will be using. I hope this is okay. montylyn"


05/03/2009: John from Ames, Iowa replies: "Has anyone tried adding organic or fresh squeezed lemon juice to it. I know in alot of gallbladder flushs they add fresh squeezed lemon juice to change the taste of olive oil and to prevent nausea?"


05/20/2009: Eric from Algonquin, IL replies: "I have a question, can ACV be added to an evening fiber drink?"


05/28/2009: Bev from Brisbane, QLD Australia replies: "My Dad used ACV in his daily fibre drink for years."


06/06/2009: t from nyc, NY, USA replies: "You can also add stevia as a sweetner its natural w/o adding calories "


06/16/2009: Mama02girls from Moundsville, WV replies: "Great Apple Cider Vinegar recipe!!!

I had trouble swallowing the ACV in water so here is a recipe that I think tastes like lemonade and really makes it easy to drink.

one cup water
2 Tbsp. ACV
two packets lemon powder (It's all natural ground up powdered lemon sold near the spices- it comes in a box of 18 packets-ask your grocer- the regular grocery stores carry it, it comes in orange
and lime, too!
two packets Stevia Powder (health food store or regular grocery store)

This tastes like regular lemonade with a kick to me! I do suggest that you drink the regular apple cider vinegar in water first, that way you can appreciate how great and normal this tastes! Good luck!"


08/10/2009: Cgm from Claremont, Ca replies: "Re: Recipe from Mama02girls

Thank you so much for your recipe-it actally tastes good-my husband likes it too! I couldn't find lemon powder, so I just squeezed about 2T of frest lemon juice in it's place...thanks again."


09/25/2009: Kristie from Paso Robles, Ca replies: "I have been using ACV with a cup of grapefruit juice. I love it! The juice is sour anyway and I can hardly taste the vinegar."


09/30/2009: Noreen from Phoenix, Az replies: "If you use Agave syrup especially light Agave Syrup, a natural sweetener and it is a great low glycemic sweetener too. I usually order a case of it thru Amazon because it is cheaper that way. I use it in literally everything, you will love it!"


10/07/2009: Nance from Venice, Fl replies: "My husband and I just recently started taking ACV. We take it in a small glass of water with a drop of honey,which adds a bit of sweetness and some good healthy minerals as well."


10/14/2009: Ann from Elizabethtown, Ky replies: "I juice every morning with an apple, orange, strawberries, blueberries, and kiwi and add 2 TBSP of ACV and I have lost 20lbs since January. The good thing is that I lost my weight slowly and will likely maintain it. This is the best I've felt in years!"


10/20/2009: Sharik from Arcata, Ca replies: "I have, for years, had a disintegrating gall bladder and, because I am allergic to anesthesia, have chosen to live with it. When I have an attack, I use 1/4 Cup ACV in 8 oz. of organic apple juice and the attack goes away within minutes (usually 15). I keep small bottles of apple juice around for just such times. When I use it for a cleanser or for any other reason, I also use apple juice as a sweetener, usually the frozen kind. Just pour a little into your water bottle, along with the ACV and fill with distilled water. For some reason it makes it much more palatable. Hope this helps those who find it difficult to take with water alone."


11/09/2009: Phil from Tucson, Arizona replies: "I drank apple cider vinegar and it made me feel very light in the loafers!"


12/27/2009: Erparf from Denver, Colorado replies: "Whole Foods "Organic" '365' Apple Cider Vinegar is also, pasteurized."


02/10/2010: Sharqueen from Fort Nelson, Bc replies: "I LOVE mixing my ACV with orange juice and a sprinkle of cayenne pepper. I been drinking this since I was 6 year old, try it! YUMMY!"


03/03/2010: Andreia from Greenville, Sc replies: "Ann from Elizabethtown, KY... What else are you doing to loose that kind of weight since Jan? I juice, but however i have never used ACV in my juice. I am very interested in doing this and following your regimin. I am so tired all the time, I have been to dr's after dr's and they all tell me is i'm just lazy and nothing is wrong. I have had thyroid issues as my entire family has some kind of Thyroid issue. Anyway, can you just update me on your status, if your still loosing, what other methods are you trying to loose weight, i found this site because of the herb Rhodiola, this was in this months issue of womans world mag and i was interested in trying it.. i need energy bad.. I will try just about anything at this point to feel better.

Thanks!!! you can e-mail me at harleyrose26@yahoo.com"



03/12/2010: Jessica from Milwaukie, Oregon replies: "This is a reply to Andreia from Greenville, Sc.03/03/10: Check how much Biotin you get on a daily basis.biotin is an enzyme cofactor that assists in the release of energy from carbohydrates and in the production of fatty acids. It also assists in activating the energy transfer molecule ATP. I always felt my body was not creating enough energy! Looking into deficiances I found my daily intake of biotin was way short. Even with my daily multivitamin I was still only getting 5% of my RDA. I now take 1000mcg of biotin once daily and have loads of energy!"


05/13/2010: Nessa from Shanghai, China replies: "About the being tired comment-I was very tired for years. The test to see if I was anemic came back negative but after years I did figure out it had something to do with a lack of protein from meat in my diet. Since I started eating meat protein I've felt more "normal", not so tired all the time."


05/25/2010: Harriet from Federal Way, Wa, Usa replies: "Another comment about being tired. I, too, was exhausted and my GP said my thyroid was 'normal'. Went to a specialist who did different tests (Free T3, Free T4, TSH and Thyroid antibodies) and discovered I had Hashimoto's. Within a week of treatment the exhaustion left. But I developed it again a couple of years later. My new GP said my iron levels were fine, but when I went to the thyroid doctor for my next blood work I asked him to check the ferritin levels (ferritin is your 'savings account' of iron). Anything below 10 is anemic and a woman needs around 50. Mine was 3. I was given an iron infusion. Turns out I had been on Prilosec for years for acid reflux from a hiatal hernia. Two months after the iron infusion (which made me feel like a new woman) I had surgery to correct the hernia. I can't remember exactly how it works but the Prilosec prevents your body from making something necessary for the processing of iron from your food, while preventing something else, yadda yadda, the upshot is I was horribly iron deficient because of the Prilosec. Since the infusion and surgery my ferritin is normal (4 years). When you visit a doctor because you are tired and he says you are lazy it is time to find a new doctor."


07/03/2010: Marty from Normandy Park, Wa. replies: "For the lady who is often very tired and wants to hear what others do for energy........I had Epstein Barr/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for 2 years and the following helped me immensely:pharmaceutical liquid DHEA (after having my DHEA levels checked as the levels were low), vitimin B-12 injections through my doctor were amazing and gave me the energy of a young person again,and lactobacillus acidophilus, bifidobacterium bifidum/latis boosts by energy levels as well. I am just beginning ACV for acid reflex and have been amazed that something so simple is actually helping me and taking the horrible acid feeling in my chest away. God Bless You."


10/30/2010: Kristi from Arlington, Wa replies: "My son had a wart on his hand for over four months. We took him to the doctor three times for three different treatments. It never helped. I finally did some research and found many people suggested putting ACV on the wart, so I figured it was worth a try. I soaked a cotton ball in ACV, put it right on the wart, covered with a bandage and waited to see the results. Four days later, it fell off and the hand was healing. Not everyone will have the exact same result but I'm totally convinced that ACV is a great cure!! "


11/14/2010: Mike T from Flower Mound, Texas Usa replies: "My question is about tap water. If I mix the vinegar with tap water and then drink it throughout the day, does the chlorine in the water harm the beneficial organisms in the Mother?
I actually don't mind the taste at all, but am concerned that I may not be achieving the full benefits of the vinegar."


11/19/2010: Jp from Portland, Or replies: "I STARTED accidentally with 2 TBS. In a 8oz glass and drank 4 1 glass in morning and 3 glasses between 6-10pm! ... For 4 days. Way too much! I am hypoglycemic and I feel terrible!! It was the beginning of a liver cleanse ruitine and I have decided to stop entirely. What can I do to get my blood sugar feeling normal again. The things I am doing are drinking lots of water, exercising and eating vegetables, but I still feel bad. Any suggestions? Thanks! "


11/24/2010: Shelley from Gold Coast, Queensland Australia replies: "Fluoride is highly damaging to the thyroid gland. Pure water is a must... The enzyme poison effect extends to our genes; DNA cannot repair itself, and chromosomes are damaged. Work at the University of Missouri showed genital damage, targeting ovaries and testes. Also affected is inter uterine growth and development of the foetus, especially the nervous system. Increased incidence of Down's Syndrome has been documented. Fluorides are mutagenic. That is, they can cause the uncontrolled proliferation of cells we call cancer. This applies to cancer anywhere in the body; but bones are particularly picked out. The incidence of osteosarcoma in a study reporting in 1991 showed an unbelievable 50% increase. A report in 1955 in the New England Journal of Medicine showed a 400% increase in cancer of the thyroid in San Francisco during the period their water was fluoridated. My particular concern is the effect of fluorides on the thyroid gland

Perhaps I may remind you about thyroid disease. The thyroid gland produces hormones which control our metabolism - the rate at which we burn our fuel. Deficiency is relatively common, much more than is generally accepted by many medical authorities: a figure of 1:4 or 1:3 by mid life is more likely. The illness is insidious in its onset and progression. People become tired, cold, overweight, depressed, constipated; they suffer arthritis, hair loss, infertility, atherosclerosis and chronic illness. Sadly, it is poorly diagnosed and poorly managed by very many doctors in this country. What concerns me so deeply is that in concentrations as low as 1ppm, fluorides damage the thyroid system on 4 levels.

1. The enzyme manufacture of thyroid hormones within the thyroid gland itself. The process by which iodine is attached to the amino acid tyrosine and converted to the two significant thyroid hormones, thyroxine (T4) and liothyronine (T3), is slowed.

2. The stimulation of certain G proteins from the toxic effect of fluoride (whose function is to govern uptake of substances into each of the cells of the body), has the effect of switching off the uptake into the cell of the active thyroid hormone.

3. The thyroid control mechanism is compromised. The thyroid stimulating hormone output from the pituitary gland is inhibited by fluoride, thus reducing thyroid output of thyroid hormones.

4. Fluoride competes for the receptor sites on the thyroid gland which respond to the thyroid stimulating hormone; so that less of this hormone reaches the thyroid gland and so less thyroid hormone is manufactured. These damaging effects, all of which occur with small concentrations of fluoride, have obvious and easily identifiable effects on thyroid status. The running down of thyroid hormone means a slow slide into hypothyroidism. Already the incidence of hypothyroidism is increasing as a result of other environmental toxins and pollutions together with wide spread nutritional deficiencies. 141 million Europeans are at risk

One further factor should give us deep anxiety. Professor Hume of Dundee, in his paper given earlier this year to the Novartis Foundation, pointed out that iodine deficiency is growing worldwide. There are 141 million Europeans are at risk; only 5 European countries are iodine sufficient. UK now falls into the marginal and focal category. Professor Hume recently produced figures to show that 40% of pregnant women in the Tayside region of Scotland were deficient by at least half of the iodine required for a normal pregnancy. A relatively high level of missing, decayed, filled teeth was noted in this non-fluoridated area, suggesting that the iodine deficiency was causing early hypothyroidism which interferes with the health of teeth. Dare one speculate on the result of now fluoridating the water?

It also displaces Iodine in the body.. **********************************************************
Try having 2 teaspoons in a cup of water with half a teaspoon of honey, I have just read from alot of people it is really hard to keep down, after having it now for a few weeks, it almost tastes like weak cordial, and its all a mind over matter. I discovered Apple cider vinegar when my cat became sick with a Urinary Tract infection, upon giving him a teaspoon in his wet tuna mix, and a bit of water, he was happier in a matter of hours and is completely normal now. To everyone seeking a detox or a trying to lose weight, I can assure you this works. But make sure you use only pure water."

Here's what I read somewhere once  - no idea where, off in the midddle of the night -
when there is contagion some people spray and sprinkle apple cider vinegar all around their homes and
on themselves and their clothing.


OK so I looked for a vinegar reference today and found this page from
A Journal of the Plague Year By Daniel Defoe

Yowbarb Note on context: This is all about two people Mr. and Mrs. John Hayward from the plague era
who survived although they were continually exposed to it.
Mr. Hayward hauled the dead bodies and Mrs. Hayward tended to the people suffering with the plague..
Some of their habits which may have saved their lives. !
Putting a couple brief bits about vinegar, garlic rue etc. here, below
and then outlining them on the next page in the text.  More about rue bottom of page.
Excerpts:

"...holding garlic and rue* in his mouth and smoking tobacco"

"...and his wife's remedy was washing her head in vinegar" "sprinkling her head-clothes so with vinegar as to keep them always moist." 
"she snuffed vinegar up her nose"
"held a handkerchief wetted with vinegar to her mouth."

This post has the full text. I entered by hand; it could not be copied.

[This is about Mr. John Hayward] – Yowbarb


“…who was at that time Under Sexton of the parish of St Stephen, Coleman Street. By Under Sexton was understood at that time gravedigger and bearer of the dead. This man carried, or assisted to carry, all of the dead to their graves which were buried in that large parish, and who were carried in form; and after that form of burying was stopped, went with the dead-cart and the bell to fetch the dead bodies from the houses where they lay, and fetched many of them out of the chambers and houses for the parish was and is still, remarkable, particularly above all for parishes in London – for a great number of alleys and thoroughfares, very long, into which no carts could come, and where they were obliged to go and fetch the bodies a very long way; which alleys now remain to witness it such as
White’s Alley…. Cross Key Court, Swan Alley and many more.

Here they went with a kind of barrow and  laid the dead bodies on it, and carried them out in the carts, which work he performed and never had the distemper at all, but lived about twenty years after it [the Plague] and was Sexton of his parish to the time of his death.  His wife at the same time was a nurse to infected people, and tended many that died in the parish…. yet she never was infected neither.

He [Mr. Hayward] never used any preservative against the infection, other than holding garlic and rue in his mouth, and smoking tobacco.”
“…and his wife’s remedy was washing her head in vinegar and sprinkling her head-clothes so with vinegar as to keep them always moist, and – if the smell of any of those she waited on was was more than ordinary offensive, she snuffed vinegar up her nose and sprinkled vinegar upon her head – clothes, and sprinkled vinegar upon her head-clothes and held a handkerchief wetted with vinegar to her mouth.

Remedy: Use apple cider vinegar, honey, warm purified water as a gargle.
