VINEGAR (Apple Cider) has been shown to Kill Cancer Cells in recent studies. It is also Anti-Viral, Anti-Fungal, Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Septic and Kills 98% of All Germs.
The only thing that kills more germs is Bleach, which kills 99% of all Germs. But you can’t eat or drink Bleach. You can’t rub it on your skin or consume it daily.
VINEGAR (Apple Cider) and Vinegar in general has been used for Medicinal purposes for at least 12,000 years. It was used in Assyria Babylon as an anti-septic as long as 12 thousand years ago. It was used by the Egyptians for medicinal purposes, at least 4,000 years ago. And it was used by the Greeks in medicine, 2,400 years ago.
Funny how the U.S. F.D.A. hasn’t got around to running any “Studies” about it’s Medicinal Uses?
It is considered “Nature’s Perfect Health Food”. It’s full of Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids, Pectin and other good stuff.
It’s also highly under attack online and from the F.D.A., who says “They have done no studies and don’t recognize any studies done to prove Apple Cider Vinegar has any health benefits at all.”
It’s only been used in Medicine for the past 12,000 years. What’s the F.D.A. waiting on, Christmas 2099?!
Considered the best book on the subject is “The Vinegar Book” by Emily Thacker. You can purchase the book online for about $15.00 including shipping. You can’t so much as find any excerpts online at all. We’ve tried for days.
It’s not a ‘banned book’, but someone doesn’t want any of it’s information provided on a net-wide basis, through online sharing.
The Book is highly recommended. Every family should have one. It’s a practical cure-all!
2 tables spoons of ACV in a glass of water twice a day, mixed with a table spoon of honey, is supposed to cure everything from cancer and the common cold and flu to helping you lose weight. It’s the best wound and scar treatment there is.
It stings like fire, but can be diluted with water. It’s better than any anti-septic sold, for the body.
Common table vinegar is the only thing carried by Australian Life Guards to fight the Deadly Box Jellyfish Sting. Though online some lie and say “It doesn’t work. The guards simply use ‘warm water’. Yea, right. Warm water to fight the most deadly venom on earth. How stupid do they sound?
And the best part is that it is very cheap to purchase.
Another online lie is that regular ‘store bought’ vinegar is not good because it’s cheap or been Pasteurized. No bottle of vinegar we’ve ever seen has been pasteurized. It kills 98% of all germs. It pasteurizes…itself.
Another online lie is that only organic mother vinegar has these health benefits.
Consumer Reports did a study on Vinegar, and it found the best vinegars, were the cheap vinegars. Because they were less refined with more “Debris”-the good stuff, vitamins and minerals and such, on the bottom of the container.
Personally, the cheap store bought brands are the best in our opinion. And they work, superbly.
There is a War on against Vinegar, both online and off, because it’s Cheap and Effective. But it’s History speaks for itself.
Vinegar (Apple Cider) is probably the most well known and popular natural cure in existence. People even write entire books about health benefits of apple cider vinegar!
The unfiltered stuff may look ‘dirty’ or ‘cloudy’ but this is a good thing because it means all the good nutrients and enzymes haven’t been removed.
One of the major benefits of apple cider vinegar is that it makes your body alkaline (as opposed to acidic). There is a significant inverse correlation between one’s health and their acidity (which can be measured). Certain foods make you acidic (sugars, alcohol simple carbs, artificial sugar, peanuts, most oils except olive, meat, dairy and smoking (more of a habit than a food)) and certain foods help turn your body alkaline (melons, dates, lemons, grapes, and apple cider vinegar). Interestingly enough even though apple cider is obviously acidic the digestive ‘ash’ residue from digestion has a alkalinizing affect on the body.
In fact many argue a key cure to cancer is to alkalize the body. This will be expanded on later in another article. Interestingly enough regular vinegar has a neutral PH ash factor. Some suggest taking baking soda with the apple cider vinegar (it’s going to be neutralized anyways) because this will cut down on the bicarbonates the pancreas has to produce (meant to neutralize acid) which should further help to alkalize and oxygenate the body.
Another reason raw apple cider vinegar may be so beneficial is its mineral content. Besides being rich in nutrients and enzymes, apple cider vinegar is rich in calcium, chlorine, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, silicon, sulfur and many other minerals in trace amounts. Apple cider vinegar is best known for its potassium content which many people are deficient in and is a powerful agent against high blood pressure. For vitamins, apple cider vinegar is a source of Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, beta-carotene, and Vitamin P. It is also rich in pectin.
Apple cider vinegar is a great anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral agent especially as a topical agent. Particularly it is popular against candidiasis (fungal growth in your intestines which almost everybody has).
Apple cider vinegar jumped into the national spotlight when Megan Fox proclaimed she used to it to lose weight, counteract the sweets she ate, and to counteract water retention following menstrual periods. While quickly scoffed at in the mainstream media there is some validity to what she is arguing (except eating sweets which acidify the body, feed your cancer cells, and cause candida/digestive issues). What happens is apple cider vinegar is stored as glycerin in the body which scrubs fat from the cells. It also speeds up one’s metabolism and accelerates the oxidation process required to flush fats out of the system. The potassium then does a great of job reducing water retention in the body.
Many toxic substances can be rendered less toxic because apple cider vinegar can change many toxins into an acetate compound which is less toxic (means this can be a cure for insect bites and skin allergies).
Also be careful what type of container you purchase apple cider vinegar in. Apple cider vinegar being very acidic leaches more toxins out the plastics then most foods. Avoid plastic #1,#3,#6, and #7. Best yet avoid plastic altogether and get glass.

What are the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar?
* Rich in potassium, a mineral that is often times lacking in adult diets. This mineral is key for growth, building muscles, transmission of nerve impulses, heart activity etc. It also helps to prevent brittle teeth, hair loss and runny noses.
* Rich in acetic acid. This acid is said to slow the digestion of starch which can help to lower the rise in glucose that commonly occurs after meals.
* Rich in ash which gives Apple Cider Vinegar its alkaline property. This aids your body in maintaining proper pH levels for a healthy alkaline state. (It is particularly important if you drink a lot of coffee or wine.)
* It can help regulate blood pressure and reduce bad cholesterol.
* Rich in malic acid which gives ACV its anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
* May help improve bowel irregularity and helps to remove toxins from the body at a faster rate.
* It can help clear up skin conditions and blemishes.
* Apple Cider Vinegar helps with weight loss by breaking down fats so that your body can use them rather than store them.
* A few lab studies have found that Apple Cider Vinegar may be able to kill cancer cells or slow their growth.
These are only a few of the laundry list of how apple cider vinegar can help you because it’s also great for the all the common colds out there as well! So, if you do want to give it a try, and I hope you do, just be patient because you’ll start feeling a whole lot different in no time:)
“My sister absolutely swear by this stuff! She swears she doesn’t have arthritis in her hands anymore, thanks to her daily glass of water with apple cider vinegar.” – Lisa
“Before I gave it a try, I used to believe ACV surely would have to be one of the worst tasting things around. To my surprise, I actually LIKE it. Really. If you mix a teaspoon or two of it in a glass of water and stir in a teaspoon of honey (to taste), you’ll find that it tastes a lot like lemonade. Then when you start feeling better, you’ll not want to give it up! It can actually stop certain allergic reactions in a matter of minutes. Read Dr. Jarvis’ book in which he documents this.” – Rhonda
Over the centuries, vinegar has been used for many purposes: making pickles, killing weeds, cleaning coffee makers, polishing armor, and dressing salads. It’s also an ancient folk remedy, touted to relieve just about any ailment you can think of.
In recent years, apple cider vinegar has been singled out as an especially helpful health tonic. So it’s now sold in both the condiment and the health supplement aisles of your grocery store. While many of the folk medicine uses of vinegar are unproven (or were disproved), a few do have medical research backing them up. Some small studies have hinted that apple cider vinegar could help with several conditions, including diabetes and obesity.
Scientific Evidence of Apple Cider Vinegar Benefits
But there are some medical uses of vinegar that do have promise, at least according to a few studies. Here’s a rundown of some more recent ones.
Diabetes. The effect of vinegar on blood sugar levels is perhaps the best researched and the most promising of apple cider vinegar’s possible health benefits. Several studies have found that vinegar may help lower glucose levels. For instance, a 2007 study of 11 people with type 2 diabetes found that taking two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar before bed lowered glucose levels in the morning by 4%-6%.
High cholesterol . A 2006 study showed evidence that vinegar could lower cholesterol. However, the study was done in rats, so it’s too early to know how it might work in people.
Blood pressure and heart health. Another study in rats found that vinegar could lower high blood pressure. A large observational study also found that people who ate oil and vinegar dressing on salads five to six times a week had lower rates of heart disease than people who didn’t. However, it’s far from clear that the vinegar was the reason.
A few laboratory studies have found that vinegar may be able to kill cancer cells or slow their growth. Observational studies of people have been confusing. One found that eating vinegar was associated with a decreased risk of esophageal cancer. Another associated it with an increased risk of bladder cancer.
Weight Loss . For thousands of years, vinegar has been used for weight loss. White vinegar (and perhaps other types) might help people feel full. A 2005 study of 12 people found that those who ate a piece of bread along with small amounts of white vinegar felt fuller and more satisfied than those who just ate the bread.
What Is Apple Cider Vinegar?
Vinegar is a product of fermentation. This is a process in which sugars in a food are broken down by bacteria and yeast. In the first stage of fermentation, the sugars are turned into alcohol. Then, if the alcohol ferments further, you get vinegar. The word comes from the French, meaning “sour wine.” While vinegar can be made from all sorts of things — like many fruits, vegetables, and grains — apple cider vinegar comes from pulverized apples.
The main ingredient of apple cider vinegar, or any vinegar, is acetic acid. However, vinegars also have other acids, vitamins, mineral salts, and amino acids.
Apple Cider Vinegar: Cure for Everything?
While long used as a folk remedy, apple cider vinegar became well known in the U.S. in the late 1950s, when it was promoted in the best-selling book Folk Medicine: A Vermont Doctor’s Guide to Good Health by D. C. Jarvis. During the alternative medicine boom of recent years, apple cider vinegar and apple cider vinegar pills have become a popular dietary supplement.
Look on the back of a box of supplements — or on the Internet or in the pages of any one of the many books on vinegar and health — and you’ll find some amazing claims. Apple cider vinegar is purported to treat numerous diseases, health conditions, and annoyances. To name a few, it’s supposed to kill head lice, reverse aging, ease digestion, and wash toxins from the body.
Most of these claims have no evidence backing them up. Some — like vinegar’s supposed ability to treat lice or warts — have been studied, and researchers turned up nothing to support their use. Other claims have been backed up by studies, but with a catch: vinegar may work, but not as well as other treatments. For instance, while vinegar is a disinfectant, it doesn’t kill as many germs as common cleaners. And while vinegar does seem to help with jelly fish stings — an old folk remedy — hot water works better.
How Should Apple Cider Vinegar Be Used?
Since apple cider vinegar is an unproven treatment, there are no official recommendations on how to use it. Some people take two teaspoons a day (mixed in a cup of water or juice.) A tablet of 285 milligrams is another common dosage.
Apple cider vinegar is also sometimes applied to the skin or used in enemas. The safety of these treatments is unknown.
Apple Cider Vinegar Uses
Vinegar has been used to cure and prevent a variety of ailments for centuries. As early as the time of Hippocrates, considered by many to be the father of medicine, vinegar was used to treat patients. During the Civil War, it was used as an antiseptic. What makes it so special and why should you use it?
Apples are one of the most nutritious, health-giving foods available, containing a host of vitamins and minerals like pectin, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, phosphorous and potassium in addition to enzymes and amino acids. Apples are the main ingredient in apple cider vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar detoxifies and purifies various organs in the body. As a purifier, it breaks down fatty, mucous and phlegm deposits within the body. By breaking down these substances, it improves the health and function of organs such as the kidneys, bladder, and liver.
It oxidizes the blood, reducing the risk of high blood pressure, and neutralizes any toxic substance or harmful bacteria that enters the body by ingesting certain foods. Apple cider vinegar promotes healthy digestion, assimilation and elimination.
Research has proven that apple cider vinegar can assist in strengthening the heart, stabilizing blood sugar and reducing the risk of certain cancers. It flushes harmful toxins from your body and assists in weight control.
Try drinking two to six teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with water every day. It can also be used in cooking or sprinkled on salads, vegetables, etc. You can drink it as a hot or cold beverage and sweeten it with honey.
CONDITIONS THAT CAN BE TREATED WITH APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
There are many common ailments and conditions that can be treated by using apple cider vinegar. A few of them are listed below:
*Arthritis – In addition to drinking vinegar with water every day, you can also soak the arthritic area in a hot solution of the vinegar and water (half a cup of vinegar to three cups of water). If you cannot soak the area, you can make a poultice soaked in the vinegar and water solution and wrap it around the are. When it cools, soak again, wring out, and apply again.
*Cancer – Apple cider vinegar cannot cure cancer, however, because of its antioxidant properties, it neutralizes free radicals (Free radicals can severely damage our cells, leading to aging and cancer.), reducing the risk of various cancers. The vinegar also contains pectin, a high fiber ingredient, resulting in a reduction of colon cancer risk.
*Constipation – Adding fiber to our diet (present in the pectin in apple cider vinegar), increases our body’s ability to have regular bowel movements, thus eliminating harmful toxins from our body.
*Diarrhea – The pectin in apple cider vinegar swells up and results in the formation of bulk, easing the problem of runny bowels. When the vinegar is taken before a meal, it can prevent diarrhea.
*High blood pressure – The potassium in apple cider vinegar can be beneficial to both the heart and blood pressure by helping to make the blood thinner, resulting in a reduction of high blood pressure.
*Weight loss – You cannot lose weight without a properly working metabolism. If the food you eat is not metabolized efficiently, the nutrients from the food will not be accessible, resulting in excess weight gain. Apple cider vinegar detoxifies the body and helps the digestion process, resulting in a highly efficient metabolism that burns the fat instead of adding it to your body.
The suggestions listed above are just a small sampling of the many uses for apple cider vinegar. Before spending your hard-earned money for expensive medicines to treat various non-life threatening ailments, try using the vinegar. It is cheap and easy to use.
The Amazing Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar is exactly what it sounds like: Vinegar from fermented apple juice.
If you’ve never had it, it tastes like vinegar but with an appley twist, and is celebrated in the natural health world as a “cure-all” internal cleanser.
It’s rich in enzymes and potassium, which your body uses to regenerate soft tissue, and it’s an alkalizer.
Clinical studies have shown:
-It’s good for diabetes as it lowers blood glucose levels
-It lowers cholesterol
-It lowers blood pressure and promotes heart health
Studies have also shown it may be able to kill cancer cells or slow their growth. Nice!
Apple Cider Vinegar is also reported to assist in curing allergies, sinus infections, acne, flu, chronic fatigue, candida, acid reflux, sore throats, contact dermatitis, arthritis, and gout.
Helps Remove Body Toxins * Helps Promote a Youthful Body *Helps support a healthy immune system
* Helps Maintain Healthy Skin * Helps Control Weight * Improves Digestion and Assimilation
* Soothes Tight and Aching Joints and Sore Muscles from exercise * Soothes irritated skin.
Whether all those claims are true, I don’t know. All I know for sure is, I love it.
And I never liked vinegar until I tried Apple Cider Vinegar about 12 years ago. Now I’m a fiend for it.
The most popular way to take it is to mix a teaspoon of ACV with a teaspoon of raw honey in a glass of filtered water.
Even if you don’t like vinegar, that makes it super easy to drink; kinda like diluted apple juice. It’s a great way to start the morning and they even bottle it and sell it diluted with honey as a beverage.
I also mix ACV with olive oil and spices in a salad dressing I make from scratch, and I often just swig it straight out of the bottle for a little kick. Of course it’s a great healthy substitute for any recipe that calls for vinegar, just prepare for a slightly different flavored dish.
15 Uses for Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar could probably rule the world if it wasn’t so stinky. It is great as a natural beauty product, weight loss aid, body detox, household cleaner, and much more. There isn’t much ACV can’t do.
If you don’t know what apple cider vinegar is, it’s completely natural apple cider that is made from apple juice and fermented into hard cider. It is then fermented a second time, which turns it into apple cider vinegar. It’s a super cheap product that can replace lots of chemicals under your sink and in your beauty routine, and surprisingly has a lot of health benefits.
A shotglass of ACV in about 16oz of water has plenty of benefits for your insides:
1. Reduces body fat, particularly that pesky abdominal fat, and triglycerides (the bad cholesterol).
2. Balance your pH levels to bust fatigue and keep your energy levels up.
3. Improve circulation.
4. Detoxify the liver and kidneys.
5. Break down mucus and cleanse the lymph nodes to heal allergy symptoms. Also gets rid of nasty side effects such as headaches, sore throats, and sinus infections.
6. Strengthen your stomach acid and prevent acid reflux and heartburn from junk food.
Helpful tip: Drink it with a straw to keep it away from the enamel on your teeth.
You can also incorporate apple cider vinegar into your beauty routine:
7. Increase the body and shine of your hair by running a cup of ACV through it after shampooing a few times a week. It’s great for removing build-up and restoring your hair to its natural state. Don’t worry – if you rinse well, you won’t smell like vinegar.
8. Fade age spots and kill acne by using apple cider vinegar as a skin toner. Dilute it a bit with some water, then soak a cotton ball in it and rub it all over your face before bed.
9. Treat warts or ringworm by soaking a cotton ball in ACV, placing it on the affected area, and securing it with a band aid. Leave it on overnight and repeat this until the wart dries up and falls off.
10. Heal a sunburn fast by adding adding a cup of ACV to warm bath water and soaking in it for 10-20 minutes. When I did this I rubbed coconut oil all over my sunburn after the bath and it worked wonders.
11. Whiten your teeth by brushing with ACV before brushing with toothpaste. Don’t do this often to avoid wearing away the enamel. (Admin Note: Use only Non-Fluoride Toothpaste – All Natural is best)
12. Relieve itchy mosquito bites by rubbing a cotton ball soaked with ACV over the affected area.
Clean your home and pets with apple cider vinegar:
13. Clean your toilet with apple cider vinegar by dumping a cup into the bowl, letting it sit overnight, scrubbing it clean in the morning, and flushing.
14. Create an all-purpose apple cider vinegar cleaner by adding half cup ACV and 1 cup water to a spray bottle. Use it to clean microwaves, kitchen counters, bath tiles, windows, mirrors, shower scum, and other non-porous surfaces. This is one of my go-to ways for quickly wiping down the bathroom. I also had a grand idea the other day for reusing a Clorox Disinfecting Wipes tube – add this solution to the empty tube, stuff some rags in there, and grab one when it’s time for a quick clean up. Much cheaper than the store-bought wipes.
15. Add a tablespoon or two to your dishwasher for extra clean and sparkly dishes. I don’t have a dishwasher, but when I soak my dishes before washing I add a little ACV to the mix to help break down food residue.
