Apple Cider Vinegar
Let me tell you folks, apple cider vinegar has got to be the greatest stuff on the planet. I had forgotten about the healing properties of this stuff until these past few days when I have been suffering terribly with sinus troubles and headaches, due to the heavy pecan pollen that is covering everything now. I was reading something and remembered the vinegar. I mixed 2 tbls. in a glass of water and gagged it down. Within 20 minutes my head was clearing up and I wasn't going through as many handkerchiefs. A few hours later I took some more. Wow, with dose number two I felt like a new person. My sinuses were clear and I could breathe, my eyes no longer watered and my headache was gone! Not only that I had energy that I have not had in a very long time and my chronic pain was gone. It has been suggested that I have fibromyalgia, but I have never had a formal diagnosis. That is probably because I rarely go to the doctor and just deal with the pain and fatigue. It might be just that I have abused my body riding horses all my life. I have cracked a lot of bones and my knees were used as shock absorbers so pain is something I expected as I got older. I also have restless leg syndrome and have since I was about 8 years old. I also tend to be extremely tired all the time. Some days I have trouble just taking care of the children and folding a load of laundry makes me feel like I have just run a marathon. I wake up in the morning feeling just as tired and in pain as I did when I went to bed. So anyway with all that said, let me get back to the ACV (apple cider vinegar). I took the ACV for my sinuses, but the side effect was that my pain diminished and I no longer felt tired. Usually, I have to take a short nap after lunch. I haven't had to take a nap for 2 days. I still wake up feeling like a mac truck ran over me, but I am taking my vinegar in the morning and begin to feel like a real person within about 1/2 and hour. I am telling you folks, this is great stuff. Now it needs to be raw, organic ACV with the mother to have all the stuff to bring your body back into balance. It is worth the money to get this and take it when you are feeling poorly. I feel like a new person. I haven't felt this good since I was about 16 years old (and that was a very long time ago). ACV will be a part of my daily routine from now on. God bless!
