I added is Apple Cider Vinegar to 12 ounces of water and drank this mixture twice during the day. I drank the vinegar mixture on day one of my fast, but I did not drink it on day two.
A YouTube subscriber asked me the purpose of adding the Apple Cider Vinegar. I found a reference, skimmed through the chapters and discovered that apple cider vinegar is good so many things.
There are more ways to use Apple Cider Vinegar, besides drizzling it over your salad or using it in a homemade salad dressing. Apple Cider Vinegar is one vinegar you should never be without.
History of Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple Cider Vinegar goes as far back as 3000 B.C. Egyptians stored Apple Cider Vinegar in urns and used it for condiments and preservatives. It was also used during biblical times.
Hippocrates (father of medicine) treated patients with Apple Cider Vinegar. He found that it was a powerful cleaning and healing elixir.
What is Apple Cider Vinegar?
Natural organic, raw Apple Cider Vinegar, comes from crushed apples that mature naturally in wooden barrels to “boost” the natural fermentation.
Natural Apple Cider vinegar has a rich, brownish color. If you hold the bottle to the light you can see tiny formations of web-like substances. This web-like substance is known as “mother.” The miracle lies in the “mother.”
Apple Cider Vinegar is Good For:
Purification of the body Relieving headaches
Shrinking the prostate

As you can see, Apple Cider Vinegar is good for many things and I did not list them all.

I try to fast once a week(sometimes I don't do this every week), but I'm starting a schedule of fasting every 3 or 4 months for 5-7 days. So far things are going well, I'm on day 3.
Thanks for sharing!
Yes it is fine. It is not like regular vinegars that you find in the store. I wouldn't take it straight only mixed with water.
I don't think it will cause tooth decay, just take care of the oral health. As for gastric ulcers, apple cider vinegar is actually helpful for digestive issues.
When I'm really ill I drink apple cider vinegar. A full cup in the morning and a full cup at night. It tends to rid myself of any illness quickly - and I always feel better afterwards.
I've never done any research on the long-term benefits of using apple cider vinegar; and wonder if you have any leads on good info? I'd like to drink it daily (my grandmother does so) but don't quite know if it would be beneficial.
I sure know it's powerful stuff. Because it sure stings going down! ;)
"This web-like substance is known as “mother.” " I've never known that apple cider vinegar has this particular substance, let alone apple cider vinegar... Love to follow up with your fasting progress though :)
Great blog Evelyn. I have always used Apple Cider Vinegar. I actually did research that showed 1-2 tablespoons of honey was not only good to break the taste down. Which you know has to be an acquired one, but honey also carries minerals that in combination with Apple Cider helps promote healthy weight loss and digestion.
Braggs is better due to the organic processing to keep it more natural. But if I can't get any I just use regular Apple Cider. I had stopped for a while so I am glad I seen your article. Oh try making a coffe cup of hot water like for tea and adding you Apple Cider and honey in.
Vinegar is an amazing product. I know for sure it works on sunburn :) I like to use apple cider vinegar in pasta salad and pulled pork as a rule! It gives the best flavor out of all the vinegar varieties or at the ones I use anyway.
Vinegar mixed with water is also recommended by manufacturers for cleaning stainless pots and pans.
I really don't know the answer to that. I have used red wine vinegar and there is a difference in the taste. The apple cider vinegar I am talking about is raw and organic, not sure about the red wine vinegar. If you can get one that is organic, then it should be fine when using in your recipes.
I see. Thanks for clearing it out. Hmm sorry I have to ask this. Is red cane vinegar the same with red wine vinegar? Lol really sorry I'm so ignorant when it comes to this. But information such as this can really help me in trying to live a healthy lifestyle. :)
I'm not sure. I've never heard of red cane vinegar. I thought you meant red wine vinegar when you first mentioned it. The only difference I can think of is that red cane vinegar, might have sugar cane in it. Hmm..not sure though??
At last I can comment again on your site. Couldn't get Livefyre to work for me. In the end I emailed their support and they fixed it for me :-)
A doctor I knew when I was working in the UK used to prescribe honey & apple cider vinegar for a lot of conditions. At the time we thought it odd.
He has been proven right though; as it is an effective treatment that many now choose to take rather than alternative pharmacopia, me included.
Have a great weekend Evelyn and so happy I can now comment again here.

I'm not. Sticking with my commluv comment system for the moment. But some of my favourite blogs have moved to livefyre and I was having problems with being able to comment on their posts!
Must say the support at livefyre is very prompt. They sorted it for me pronto. Was very impressed.
