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
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.
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
in a glass of water

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.
