ACV: A Super Tonic for Super Energy and More

Use Apple Cider Vinegar As A Tonic

“When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”    This phrase comes to mind because I had heard about the benefits of ACV years ago at a Women’s Gathering that I organized.  I asked all the women to come prepared to share natural remedies that they had used or learned about growing up.  One older lady present discussed how she had taken ACV when traveling to other countries and had never gotten a stomach virus even when all of her co-workers had gotten ill.   When I purchased a bottle, I noticed that there was a recipe for an energy tonic right on the label.  The recipe consisted of vinegar and honey or  blackstrap molasses three times a day.    Folk Medicine: A Vermont Doctor’s Guide to Good Health, written by D.C. Jarvis, M.D states that cider vinegar could destroy harmful bacteria in the digestive tract and recommended it as a digestive tonic to be consumed with meals.  I know that my daughter and I had started using vinegar for cleaning the house, but I had never considered it for internal cleaning.

Apple Cider Vinegar Even Helps Thicken Thinning Hair

But, it wasn’t until a family member shared her personal story about ACV a few months ago that I took it to heart.  Since then I have been drinking ACV regularly.  I swear even my toenails which have been dark since I can remember are getting lighter.   My relative talked about how ACV had helped to restore her daughter back to health.  The ACV removed the mercury from her daughter’s frail body through her scalp after a near death experience after a childhood vaccination.  She also talked about how it had helped to thicken both of her daughters hair as well as friend’s whose hair was thinning. After several months her friend’s hair was thick again.  All the women present wanted some right then.  She encouraged me to use ACV to detangle my daughters’ thick afro hair after washing it.

Get Raw Brown Vinegar with the Mother In It

She raved about it so much that I decided that I wanted to find out more about it.  At first I got the wrong kind.  I didnt know whether to get white or brown vinegar, apple or rice, or distilled.   The white vinegar didnt work for ailments but worked wonders on my white tile.   Brown vinegar that’s processed also didnt work.  I was instructed to make sure that I got the Braggs Brand with the ‘mother’ in it.   It also had to be organic,  raw, and unfiltered.

To my surprise, the Bragg’s brand had a tonic recipe right on the bottle.   But, a little research on the web uncovered even more secrets of ACV.  Here is what I found out at

Health Benefits of ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar)

Apple Cider Vinegar, that wonderful old-timers home remedy, cures more ailments than any other folk remedy.”   This site has been recording the health benefits of ACV for the past eight years.  Here’s how they summarize the benefits of ACV: “They include cures for allergies (including pet, food and environmental), sinus infections, acne, high cholesterol, flu, chronic fatigue, candida, acid reflux, sore throats, contact dermatitis, arthritis, and gout. One reader reported that a shot of ACV saved him from going to the emergency room for heart pain. Apple Cider Vinegar also breaks down fat and is widely used to lose weight. It has also been reported that a daily dose of apple cider vinegar in water has high blood pressure under control in two weeks!” On a personal note, another family member is using it right now with cayenne pepper for shingles.  Be sure to check out my post on cayenne.

Note:  I am not a doctor or health professional, just a person seeking super health through natural healing remedies.  Check out everything yourself and do your own research.   My irridologist doesn’t agree with the hype about ACV.  So, you’ll have to make up your own mind.  This info is only to get you started.
