Apple Cider Vinegar Plus Honey Equals Good Health

It seems that 2 ingredients, commonly found in our kitchens, can offer some wonderful, healthful benefits with virtually no side-effects. Those 2 ingredients:


Apple Cider Vinegar


and


Honey


mixed with some water can help with everything from colds to arthritis to insomnia.


According to Deforrest Clinton Jarvis, M.D. (1881-1966) a graduate of the University of Vermont Medical College, a bloodstream that is too alkaline is more prone to infections, and he believed that this increase was a direct result of higher fats and processed foods in the modern diet. He found that increasing the acid in one's system seemed to decrease the alkalinity, and that by drinking the vinegar/honey solution was one way of accomplishing that. He also discovered that the acid (from the cider vinegar) dissolved calcium deposits in joints, hence its efficacy for arthritic conditions.


HOW TO:


Mix


2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey

in a glass of water



and sip.

For insomnia (which I have written about here before, and from which I suffer)


mix 1 or 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
with 2 tablespoons of honey

and mix in a small amount of warm water


sip a while before bed time.


Apparently, this concoction does not help you fall asleep, so much as helps keep you asleep once you do.



Good health to you all.

I read somewhere that this is NOT good for children under 2. But as always, check before you proceed.

It's amazing how both honey and vinegar both together and separately are very healthy.

Read up on this and decided to give this a whirl. First try and I'm feeling nauseous with a grumbly tummy. XP I'm hoping that after a good nights sleep I'll feel better.

Sorry to hear that! I hope you at least had a good nights sleep. Let me know if you did or not.
