Apple Cider Vinegar Cure

Apple Cider Vinegar 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 first thing to consider with apple cider vinegar is the type.  It should be raw, unfiltered, organic, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar (sometimes referred to as mother).  This type of apple cider vinegar is unfortunately probably not what your going to find in a supermarket, so you will probably have to purchase this at a natural food store or online (Spectrum and Bragg are popular brands).  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.  The filtering done by so many producers is done solely for cosmetic reasons.  A number of filtered apple cider products are actually just regular vinegar flavored with apples, so yet another reason to buy unfiltered apple cider vinegar.  Many health sites claim only unfiltered or 'mother' will work as a cure.

For a complete list of what apple cider supposedly cures see the list at the bottom. 

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, fluorine, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, silicon, sodium, 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 which I wrote an entire page about.

Apple cider vinegar is a natural blood thinner (think aspirin or advil but without the dangerous side effects for joint, circulation, mental and nervous system issues).   It is also a natural chelator (this means it can remove heavy metals from your system) but there are probably plenty better (like cilantro).  I'll touch more on chelation later...

Apple cider vinegar commonly comes in pill form, but most sources I've read discourage apple cider vinegar pills because they say the processing completely changes the essence of what apple cider vinegar is and nullifies the health benefits.

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).

Be careful when consuming apple cider vinegar as it can cause tooth damage.  Try to to dilute it, drink it with a straw and rinse your mouth after consuming it.

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.
