Apple Cider Vinegar The Miracle Worker


This falls into the what was I thinking??? And the how did I ever
forget this category.

As many of you know, I have been suffering from a nasty virus
all week.  I hate being sick.  I'm not good at it and that's why I
tend towards preventative rather than reactive.  But recently my
immune system has been stressed and I easily succumbed to the
fever, cough and runny nose virus.  

Suddenly I had a brainstorm this morning and a little voice
inside me shouted ….

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR!

I have used this remedy in the past and it has been so effective.
Although I am feeling better this morning, I still have some
lingering side effects from my illness, and I want them out
of here fast.  Here is what I am doing:

2 Tablespoons unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar
One Cup of Hot Water
Honey to taste.

Stir and drink.  It's better than you think!

Did you know all the other things that Apple Cider
Vinegar can do?  They are amazing!!!

Put some Apple Cider Vinegar on a cotton pad and
place over spider veins.  Do it every day and in a few
weeks, the nasty old spider veins are supposed to 
disappear!  Hmmm...

My late mother-in-law used Apple Cider Vinegar
mixed with some water as a final rinse after 
shampooing her hair.  My sister-in-law Cindy
still does this.

Apparently, it is also used to treat poison ivy.
My husband David got into some poison ivy
recently and was miserable for weeks.  He used
the standard Calamine lotion treatment and it did 
offer some relief, but in researching this blog
post, I discovered an article about treating
poison ivy with Apple Cider Vinegar.  You can 
read it here.

There are more and more things this vinegar is rumored
to help resolve, high blood pressure, weight loss and
more.  But for now, I'll be happy if it just cures
me of the last stages of this nasty old bug!  Have a
wonderful weekend everyone!!

Disclaimer ~ I do not claim that apple cider vinegar
can cure any of these ailments.  Hope that satisfies
any attorneys out there :-)

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  3. That's the only brand of ACV I use myself because it's naturally fermented, but wow does that stuff do amazing things. It's also good for heartburn, and attracting fruit flies...lol...very versatile isn't it?

    I hope that you feel better soon, that's a nasty virus.

    1. I forgot about mentioning fruit flies ~ I have used it for that too. I think this virus has burned up some of my "little gray cells" ;-)

  10. I read in an old family letter that when groups of men from neighboring farms came together to get some big job done (This was known as a bee whether it was men or women.) they drank vinegar in the the fields. During the labor intensive haying and harvesting season, American and Canadian farmers in the nineteenth century would drink apple cider vinegar as a refreshing and energizing tonic. If the vinegar was diluted with fruit juice, the drink was known as "switchel".

    1. That's so interesting! I never realized the many uses of apple cider vinegar before. Remember the old saying "an apple a day keeps the doctor away". Lot's of truths in those old remedies. Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Back when I was pregnant with my 2nd son I'd get really bad heartburn. While I was visiting my parents once during an episode of it my dad said to have mama make me a vinegar "cocktail", (no alcohol involved!) I didn't want to drink it but I finally downed it & I was amazed at how quickly my heartburn went away. I use the same exact remedy to this day. It works like a charm every time.
