Judy, I guess you can, but cold icy water may not be great for overall digestion. Details on hot and cold honey and lemon/cider vinegar drinks in: Honey and Lemon for Weight Loss.
Honey another source of not only great taste, but apple cider vinegar & honey is a gift from God!
Can you use ice water and ice?
I use ACV whenever I feel indigestion. It works immediately. I also use it as conditioner with water and a couple drops of lavender oil, and love how my hair feels. When I use it as conditioner, I also use it on my face.
A friend told me about Bragg's apple cider vinegar and honey. I have osto-arthritis in my legs, back and hands. Sometimes its hard to walk or hold anything. So I started drinking this with water. We only drink green tea, mint and def tea mixed with splenda and water in our house hold. We are raising our own pork and buy fresh eggs when we can. So far the vinegar drink is working my hands isn't as still and the hurting is milder now. Thanks for this article and keep me informed of any other ways to use natural ingredients.
This mixture is healing my foot surgery quicker, plus it's helping in weight loss, breathing problems. In warm water, I use 1tsp. of organic ground ginger from Mountain Rose Herbs, 1tsp. sweet cinnamon or "Ceylon", 1tbsp. raw honey, 2tbsps. lemon juice, 1tbsp. A CV, mix them all up together and drink down 15 mins. before you eat.
Hi! Greetings to u all, I've tried apple cider vinger and it really works, it has cut down my cholesterol level. I am thankful to the above information provider.
Elvin, honey & cinnamon and honey & cider vinegar are different folk remedies that offer different health benefits. You probably would get the benefits from all the ingredients combined. However, individual's response to foods and medicines are different. You may want to try one regimen one at a time (eg for 2 weeks) and compare the effectiveness for the different combinations.
Are there any benefits by mixing honey, cinnamon, and vinegar together?
I have been drinking this concoction now for some time. Have noticed the arthritis in my hands decrease & rarely have acid reflux. Tried a store brand & was very upset with it. Nasty. Bragg is the ONLY brand I ever use now. Am printing & sharing this article. Thanks so much for sharing it. Even my doctor is happy with my results.
I did this in the past, and then didn't bother for a while. I now want to get back to taking this every morning, as I did know the benefits.
I have only just started drinking this mixture.
Great information! Natural is the best way to go. Thank You. Blessings.
Carolyn, thanks for sharing the details! Greatly appreciated.
I have COPD and usually get sick with cold and/or flu a few times a year, even after having a flu shot. And it usually progresses to bronchitis, lasting a month or more. Fall of 2014 I had a particularly bad case and was sick for over a month. I had read about the benefits of raw apple cider vinegar and manuka honey, so I decided to try it. While sick I took a tablespoon of each 3 times a day in 8 ozs of hot water like a tea. Sometimes I would take the acv like a shot and put the honey in a cup of tea. I also put a tablespoon of coconut oil in my coffee every morning because coconut oil has amazing health benefits as well. I was completely better in less than a week! I decided to continue taking the acv, coconut oil and manuka honey twice a day on a regular basis, and I have not so much as had the sniffles in the 2 years since starting the regimen. Every morning and every night I take 1 tbs of acv, manuka honey and coconut oil on an empty stomach. As I said, I just take the acv like a shot and add the honey and coconut oil to hot tea or coffee. Not only are there natural antibacterials, antivirals and antifungals in the mixture, it also aids in detoxing your body. I am completely amazed that I have not been sick in the 2 years I've been doing this, and I don't plan on stopping. The acv must be raw or unfiltered, with the "mother" in it and Bragg's acv is a terrific one to use. Manuka honey may be difficult to find all the time, but regular raw honey will work also. The best place I have found to purchase raw honey, including Manuka, is at your local farmer's market or you can order it on line. These products can be expensive but not nearly as expensive as prescriptions and time lost. Give it a try! You won't be disappointed!! Blessings.
I have arthritis in my hands and looking to easy the pain. I am going to give the vinegar and honey a try.
I have tried the recipe of 3 teaspoonfuls of apple cider, 1 teaspoonful of honey in a glass of water for cramps. Take it at bedtime - works wonders! I have passed the recipe to friends and we all sleep through the night without the curse.
Two parts raw honey, one part apple cider vinegar, five parts water. Mix. I use as eye drops for pink eye. Three times a day as needed.
Honey and cider vinegar worked wonders for me, l had joint pains and feeling weak all the time. Less than a week taking the mixture l started feeling great. It's part of my diet now.
I found apple cider with raw honey is a very good mixture for stomach upset.
I grew up with on a farm in South Australia and my dad was a naturopath as well as a farmer. We grew all our own food including fruit, veg, cattle, sheep, chickens and even bees (honey). In my entire childhood I saw a dr only twice. Mostly bc my dad fixed all our ailments. Now, at 41 I'm going back to how I was brought up health and food wise - and that includes cider vinegar and honey! This was a year round staple in our home. It was our version of cordial. Us kids were not impressed as if we wanted cordial THIS was our only choice. This or plain milk or rainwater straight from the tap. We were not fans of this drink at all even tho I see the monumental benefits these days. My parents Wud make up approx 500ml at a time on our wood stove then keep it (with the mother) in the fridge till the next lot needed to be made - a couple times a week. It IS an excellent thirst quencher wen u play sport too or on a hot day. These days I'm riddled with lupus arthritis and so I'm going back to eating the way I was brought up - using food as medicine as I've always been a believer of taking as little synthetic stuff as possible. This is a great article. Thanks.
My daughter in law introduced me to this over Christmas holidays and I bought some today and am going to try it. I am hoping that it will help my cholesterol, blood pressure and arthritis.
I use this per the recipe on the bottle. But from Jan 1 thru Apr 1, I used ACV with 1 packet of stevia. I was having erratic BP readings and read this would help. I actually got another benefit. Every year during the first 3 to 4 months of the year I get 2 to 3 bad sinus infections and have to take antibiotics to get rid of them. That didn't happen this year. So I will continue to use ACV, honey & sometimes cayenne pepper for the rest of my life(I'm 64).
Thank you for the wonderfully helpful information. I was reminded of the Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar by a friend who was ninety-nine years old at the time. I began to drink two teaspoons in a quarter cup of cold water every morning upon arising and chasing that down with fresh water for my teeth. After reading about combining the Bragg vinegar with raw honey and cold water, I plan to have this drink later in the day. God bless you for helping the others' health.
My friend had a bad case of MRSA. Started him on ACV & Manuka Honey. Within 4 months his MRSA cleared up! (Also try: Black Seed Oil). God Bless these amazing remedies...
Your body automatically sets its own alkaline / acid levels! There isn't anything you can do to change that. You can only make your urine more alkaline by what you eat/drink.
I lost 6 kgs in 2 months.
I took apple cider vinegar, honey and cinnamon to help the beginning of pretty bad flu symptoms, and it helped amazingly. I also took Vitamin C 1000 mg, kept taking all of them a few times more, rested (exhausted from the ordeal:) and all flu symptoms stopped within an hour. That was my first experience. I've used it countless times since to ward off early cold symptoms as well. Had only one cold slipping through in years :/ I'm hit hard with colds/flu having asthma and very susceptible for some reason, so I try to be diligent in catching them early. I do buy raw organic acv and honey now, and I use ceylon cinnamon as well.
I am 82 years old and have been using honey and vinegar for the last 30 years as directed and I am on no other medications except small coated aspro daily. I am in good health and swim 60 laps once a week play golf twice (walking) and go dance twice.
I found 32oz bottle of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar at Walmart yesterday!
I have melasma on my face for 5 years and it's stubborn seriously. When I start using apple cider vinegar and honey for two week, I saw big difference on my face and I believe I'll keep on using it more and the melasma will disappear.
This sounds good. I am going to try this and I ordered the vinegar from amazon.
On Monday while visiting a friend,she mentioned that her brother had lost 65 pounds with ACV recipe. I start today! 1 T Braggs ACV, 1 T raw local honey,1/4 t cayenne, 3" ginger root peeled & thin sliced and 5 cinnamon sticks simmered, just a little of hot liquid with cold water.I'll get organic cinnamon and cayenne. I look forward to the positive results that others have mentioned. I didn't need to get the Braggs ACV has I always have it. Now I'll use it 2x daily. Thanks for all the positive comments.
I use Braggs vinegar and honey when I have a headache and minutes later the pain is gone. I love making the mixed concoction and drinking it for the taste. I fix a concoction once a day, beats drinking sodas and it's beneficial to your health.
Was on it for ten years, got off. My pain came back. It is good for sinus.
I been taking 1 oz of organic vinegar the last 30 years. I will add honey to the vinegar now for more health benefits.
I am experiencing leg cramps since I started drinking the mixture each morning.
I love local honey (do not use warm water as it ruins the honey), Braggs vinegar with the mother, and lemon. I freeze the lemons and grate them so I use the peel and everything. Anyway, I have allergies and it has helped me tremendously. I used to have to sleep sitting up because of the coughing. Now I have no cough.
Since starting ACV with cold water my PAD cramps have lessened and my energy level is up. I will keep trying it.
Helpful with many different areas of my health.
Ammar, achieving an alkaline balance is known to be important to overall health, body immunity, vitality, and effective weight loss. It's not a baseless allegation. As mentioned in the article, eating alkaline-forming foods, such as the cider vinegar drink is based on a scientific theory; these foods not only help in maintaining the body's ideal pH balance, heal a wide range of ailments including arthritis, slow down the ageing process, but also aid in weight management.
Is there any "evidence based medicine" that proves these allegations? Especially burning fat? I know it may reduce weight but that could be by reducing muscle mass.
My father used apple cider vinegar with the "mother" for many years after his heart attack, along with honey. He ended up raising bees for about 30 years. It seemed to help him also with his arthritis. I now have it and taking this mixture seems to help. I read dr. jarvis's book again recently and his comments on the benefits are still very true even 60 years later.
I use raw wildflower honey, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, and lemon juice whenever I feel like I am getting sick. (Though this last time I waited a bit too long). When you feel a cold coming on, mix those all together with hot water and drink 2x a day...my entire family, including mother, sister, father, and even godmother, all drink it when we are starting to feel under the weather. From what I understand each ingredient has healing powers and I can tell you that after 2 days of drinking it, my symptoms go away.
Awesome - so good for you.
It's a refreshing drink that has many good benefits.
I love this concoction I use distilled water and I drink it every morning on an empty stomach, may start doing it twice a day.
I was told I had lymphoma back in September, in my neck stomach, chest, and groin. The lump in my groin was the size of a golf ball, since taking ACV spoon full of raw honey and a freshly squeezed lemon diluted in 8oz of boiled water every morning, my lump has shrunk, not sure about my others yet until I have my next CT scan.
Good sharing with healthy recipe, yes, apple cider vinegar (ACV) helps to boost metabolism, blocks the body's storage of dietary fat plus breaks down and dissolves existing body fat. A study at Australia's University of Sydney in which subjects who consumed two tablespoon of ACV daily experienced fewer surges and crashes in blood sugar levels.

I have been using a mixture of 1tbls Bragg Apple cider vinegar with a slice of fresh lemon, a couple tsps of raw organic honey, a green tea bag and lastly 1 tbls of organic cold pressed coconut oil...with warm bottled water..3 times a day..(i should clarify, I only add the green tea bag in the morning & the evening) HUGE results and the lemon/honey cuts out the bite of the vinegar that I don't care for. I'm dropping weight like crazy but I'm also incorporating about 20-45 min of Pilates and yoga 4-6 days a week. I mostly eat raw veggies, some fruit, a small amount of dairy, a lean protein like chicken, tuna, or turkey and whole grains. I also drink probably 6-8 16oz bottles of water a day. I have lost over 50 lbs since November. I had to completely reevaluate the way I view food and my health but when I reached a plateau with just a few small changes and limited exercise, I added the natural remedies I've mentioned and I really started to see results. I feel TONS better and the severe GI problems/IBS I've been dealing with for the last year have all but disappeared. Oh & I also take a probiotic supplement. I have so much more energy and I'm proof that turning to natural cures are a realistic way to heal every ailment and strengthen all your bodies delicate systems!
I have added a very important nutrient to my daily ACV and honey. It is iodine which is lacking in the American diet and responsible for many issues associated with the thyroid. I do an alcohol extract of green black walnut hulls and add a half of a dropper full and dilute with purified water. I had been dealing with many health issues but am now feeling noticeably better. The black walnut extract also helps to eliminate certain parasites which is a problem with many people in this world of ours.
Hi everyone. I am a Pastor dealing will a number of people on daily basis. People are sick and have no hope. I strongly believe that herbs are magical. Therefore I take a glass of water mixed with Apple cider vinegar and lemon juice on my empty stomach 30min before meal. Ten drops of Black seed oil. Please google the benefits of black seed oil also know as Nigella Sativa or Kolanji oil extract. In the evening before bedtime I boil water separate then mix Galic powder, gound Ginger, Tumeric powder, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, black pepper is a must take with turmeric as it helps the body absorb cucumin in turmeric about 300 percent. Then I add the super honey for flavour and super benefits of it thereof. In a mug like the coffee mug I mix my concoction, let it cool for some time then I drink it. My body is now used to this and I am loving it. I haven't seen a doctor in a long time and I feel super healthy. Caynne pepper in small quantity I sometimes add. I used to suffer from nasal polyps. Doctors told me they are incurable. I have had two painful surgeries and guess what the polyps returned in no time and I vowed never again will I go for that surgery again. Now those polyps are disappearing. That makes me the happiest Pastor. Thank you.
I found apple cider with honey is good for my health.
I have a very good remedy using Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon juice. For some years I have suffered with bladder stones.These are uncomfortable and have caused me other serious issues involving surgery. I recently was aware of a new stone in my bladder and following research of the causes of stones I tried a new natural treatment to disperse and pass the stone rather than have surgery again. I squeeze the juice from one lemon ( 2oz) add 1oz of apple cider vinegar and top up to 1ltr of water.Pour the contents into two 500ml bottles and drink through the day. Having done this for 3 weeks now my stone is reducing and becoming gravel which is being passed which is a bit uncomfortable but it works and beats Lithotripsy surgery.
I am going to buy the ACV & raw honey today.
Both my husband and I have major health problems. My girlfriend told me bout this drink. I have osteoporosis, padgets disease, chronic bone disorder. My husband is on transplant for a new liver. So we are game in trying this recipe.
So far I have tried raw apple cider vinegar with honey and I have been able to keep heartburn under control, as well as well as arthritis and obesity to name a few. I normally ingest it at lunch time in place of any other kind of drink.
Aside from a recurring thyroid cancer, I used to suffer from painful gouty attacks (almost every other week, thus making me limp & almost crawled at times. If I really want to get mobile, I do it with the help of a walker plus somebody to be near me always in case I fall), several months ago. Then I've read about Bragg apple cider vinegar & pure honey which do good to painful joints, etc. I did not hesitate trying the concoction. But my 1st concern was where to buy both? My son went to several supermarkets in Manila but found none. We did too in our province but was repeatedly told it sells like hotcakes (the Bragg, with the Mother), so we were always unable to buy even 1 bottle. Not much problem with honey because there are so many to choose from in shelves of supermarkets. Although I used to look for Aunt Sue's as I've read that it's also the best brand of pure honey.
I've read too that acv is also good against hypertension (which I had since 1989), high cholesterol, diabetes, acid reflux, even for acne, signs of aging, etc. So, posted in my FB wall my need for that acv. I wrote I really feel the need to drink it, hopefully for a better health. Then, an FB friend wrote me a pm. She said she was lucky to have bought 2 bottles (the only allowed per customer, in that health store), & she's sending me 1, praise God! So? upon receipt of that bottle (plus a bottle too of a pure honey from another friend), I excitedly started my 1 tbsp acv plus 1tbsp honey in a glass of warm water 30 minutes before breakfast. I never had any painful gouty attacks!
Then, my elder sister, upon knowing my need for this Bragg acv, brought me 5 big bottles of that plus Aunt Sue's Honey! Blessings! I continued drinking the concoction. One afternoon, my husband came home with a printed research. He said somebody gave it to him & it was about this acv. The research stated that acv is good against a lot of ailments. I agreed (because I've read it too, months ago). He said he likes to try acv too. From then on, I prepare 2 glasses of the concoction at 6am or at 6:30am, for my husband & myself. 30 minutes after, we partake of breakfast. Then, he leaves for his office while I start doing light household chores. I feel happier now!
After recurrence last Jan., 2014, I stayed in bed for as long as my body dictates. I used to force myself up only for personal necessities, then back to bed again. It's different now. I rise as early as 5am, do a little of this & that in the house, prepare the concoction, sip it (with a straw as I'd been having difficulty swallowing food even any liquid after my 2nd thyroid surgery), then I'm ready for breakfast (now with my husband & kids), then more movements (light chores). Unlike before when I never even see or hear our youngest daughter had breakfast, prepare & leave for her classes in the University neither our Teacher daughter for her Elementary school. Now, I even get to talk to them & help them in whatever it is that concerns them which I could easily pitch in or assist.
BTW, come March I will be undergoing blood tests & body scan again to know if there are still metastases in my system brought by my recurring thyroid ca. I pray there is none...
It proves to be effective for me, after a month, my BP & cholesterol level goes down, and even sugar level. You may try.
I have arthritis and have found myself feeling less pain since I began to drink the organic ACV & organic honey. Am going to continue drinking it. I do like it better the longer I drink it.
I eat honey and others to cure my diabetes. Now I am cured of my 25 years diabetes. I am eating more honey. All the honey bought at shop are adulterated, that is why I come here.
I had been taking an anti-inflammatory drug for arthritis and had also experienced terrific heartburn and had taken so many anti acids it had caused constipation, bloating and pains. I stopped taking all antiacids and the anti inflammatory and started taking pure raw cider vinegar and raw honey. It took a several days but it's been about 6 weeks and my stomach problems and cleared up, as well as constipation. The vinegar has even helped in the arthritic pain and I use only tylonol. I continue using a T. of vinegar with tsp. of honey a couple times a day. It works.
I just started taking it as a detox, and for weight loss. Works great as a detox, looking forward for the weight loss.
Great combo. I've always like apple cider vinegar and honey.
Actually, it tastes a little bit like beer to me, or what I remember beer tastes like since I haven't had it in years. I have it in the AM right after waking up and in the PM with dinner.
I've only been using this concoction for a little over two weeks and I tell you I feel great. And my digestion has greatly improved! I am diabetic and have slow digestion but now it has improved by 80 percent. And a lot less indigestion after meals with certain foods such as onions tomato sauce etc. Please try it you'll be happy you did!
I just started this week. I am taking one tablespoon of organic honey with one tablespoon of braggs apple cider vinegar by the mother with 10 oz of warm water, twice daily.
This remedy I've just recently started using but I can give it a huge thumbs up for helping with my digestion. I've always had a hard time with that. Thanks so much for this remedy!!
I was on apple cider and vinegar for about 2 years back in the 90's. I quit when I retired from the Government. It always made me feel and look better. I now, at 77 am going back on it.
I am using it in conjunction with a fasting regimen, and it's a powerhouse that keeps you energetic, positive and relaxed. I put it in a teapot, the honey, the Bragg vinegar but I also add a tea bag of 100% PURE CANADIAN ginseng tea, grown and produced only here in Canada. THAT is a dynamic combo, I drink the entire teapot over the course of a day.
I used this mixture for my respiratory issues and it worked. It increase my lung capacity.
I replaced dinner for Apple cider vinegar and honey and the weight loss was amazing. I also felt calm and well balanced.
I have just started this remedy for calcium deposits. I also have arthritis in my pointer finger. Let's hope it works!
I'm quite sick with major congestion and a sore throat along with a lot of other pains. I am drinking Lipton Hot Tea with 1 Tsp of Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar. I hope it works, I added sugar to kiil off the taste of the acv.
I drink 1 teas. honey with 1 teas. apple cider vinegar with a little water and drink this every morning. My husband drinks it also. It has been years since my husband and I have had a serious cold. Maybe a sniffle here and there but nothing serious.
Hello readers, all the hype about the taste was no big thing, it was more to the smell than anything else. Put the honey in first then the apple cider vinegar stirred it all up, quick swig just like a tequila shot, not a bad taste. Let you know how it goes in the future with my health. Good health to all.
I noticed the difference with my sinus congestion.
I drink Bragg apple cider with honey and garlic everyday for my heart and other aliments.

Christi Kline, your post on 26/09/2015... Your severe and persistent intestinal sickness is called clostridium difficile. It is very common, very tenacious, very often undiagnosed. (Antibiotics cause it in many cases, killing off the friendly bacteria and the c.diff. takes over.). This is not a diagnosis, of course. It is a sincere recommendation that you ask your doctor to test you for c.diff. Untreated, it flourishes and can be devastating.
Looking forward to my future with my apple cider vinegar & honey drink.
I am a believer.
All my life I thought vinegar is bad for it will weaken the blood to sugar. But now I learn which vinegar is good for you. Now I am trying it.
I lost 4 kilos in two months of taking apple cider vinegar w/ honey.
I use this for heart burn all the time and for sore throat.
I had been battling severe diarrhea for the last 3 years after being prescribed some strong antibiotics. I have tried everything from yogurt to eating gluten free with no relief until I began drinking ACV and honey every morning. It's only been a week but my stomach feels normal for the first time in years.
Helps with fatigue.
I'm looking forward for a great health.
I learned to use it from a 90 yrs old American Christian friend.
Cider vinegar is good for relieving pain and healing minor burns (not for treatig severe burns with intense pain). Be sure to dilute the vinegar first before applying.
I grew up on a farm in the 1940s where we had a wood burning cook stove. Many a times I burnt my hand opening the stove lid to add more wood. Apple cider vinegar was always handy to relieve the pain and heal the wound.
I've just started wth honey and cider vinegar mixture. lets see results. I want flat abs.
Honey is good for cough.
About three years ago, I was told I have approx. 21 stones in my kidneys. Doctors took too long and wouldn't fix the issue. I took their prescriptions for more pain. Since I found out about the acv and honey mix, few weeks ago, I have been trying to become regular. Although, since I started, I have been in less pain. Keep in mind, for some organs to get better, there is the detox phase. Keep pushing fluids.
I tried this for the first time today. I have very bad arthritis. I took my first sip and it really wasn't bad at all. So I started drinking it down like a glass of water. As soon as I got about 3 gulps down it came right back up. I know I have a weak stomach and don't want to give up but very nausea right now. Anyone else have this happen?
Just started today. I have high blood pressure high cholesterol, and arthritis. I'm so hoping that this works.
I've been drinking water/vinegar/honey each morning for about a month now. For my overall health. I tried it without honey the first week or so - would pretend I was eating salt & vinegar chips (which I love). It was hard to get down. But then I added some raw honey and it changed everything. It tastes delicious and your article is correct - the more you drink it the better it tastes! Thank you!
Keep up the good works, specially acv and unpasteurised honey plus ceylon cinnamon proven by myself. It reduces your blood pressure and also sugar. Thanks guys.
My cholesterol was 480, it never came down but with the usage of apple cider with honey --mine cholesterol came down. I felt a bit relieved.
My husband and I have been using Bragg's Apple Cider vinegar for 3 yrs. Benefits helping us both to lose weight, burns fat.
I have been starting my day with ACV and honey for three months now, and after taking omeprazole for fourteen years, was able to wean myself off. Also now have fingernails and have stopped needing moisturizer on my face! I feel much better, too, and am losing weight. Very much worth getting used to the taste of vinegar!
I am 95 years old, good health. Most people think I am approx. 75 to 80. I have been taking apple cider and vinegar for approx. 45 years. I have approx.30 or more friends who are also taking this. Take this. My skin is very clear.
I was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease on a scale of 3 out of 5. It was picked up form analysis of proteins from blood samples. I had been very tired, also had what seemed like thrush in the back of my throat and was very uncomfortable and irritating. The diagnosis was a shock to me. I had been in the habit of having a glass of wine every evening and two or three at the weekends. I don't drink any alcohol now, only one cup of coffee a day, very little cheese/dairy, I'm a fish eating vegetarian anyway. I started to drink two tablespoons of cider vinegar and honey in water per day four weeks ago. I have lost the thrush altogether, am much less tired and feel much more 'with it'.
I have been trying the Apple Cider Vinegar many times and it makes smooth digestions and also I use for my face normaly to remove black heads and mark of pimples. I'm happy to use this Apple Cider Vinegar. Thank you!
I agree with you, the benefits outweigh the unfounded concerns. Those doctors / dentists, they go by the book. I asked my doctor what she thinks of ACV, she said she doesn't know, and doesn't know anyone drinking it on a regular basis. My first thought was, "frog in well", doesn't know anything about outside world.
Yes, Joan, I have heard this before from a couple of visitors who were warned by their dentists. The concern is with the acidity of the mixture. I am unable to ascertain how true this issue is, but if it too worrisome, my suggestion is: get a good mouth rinse immediately after taking the drink each time. On the other hand, interestingly, there have been many reports that shared the benefits of apple cider and honey as a remedy for tooth issues (ie. clears infections and prevent tooth decay). I find that some dentists'/doctors' answers are often very prescriptive - conveniently matching symptoms with cause, without really having a holistic views of health issues. If an issue arising from a precious food can be easily avoided by taking a particular action, then I feel we shouldn't be abandoning the whole idea of eating that food which could possibly bring many answers to bigger health issues.
Hi Ruth, I have a question about drinking ACV everyday, has anyone mentioned about ACV ruining our teeth enamel? I read somewhere it could peel off our teeth enamel.
Dorothy, there are many postings on honey and cider vinegar as remedy for arthritis on this page and other pages on older postings (See the links in this page). You may want to do a Ctrl F on your keyboard to find "arthritis" in the pages of postings by others.
I have painful arthritis which developed just six months ago. I am 78 years of age. Will cider vinegar and honey help ease the pain? Don't want to stay on Panadol Osteo as I take many other chemicals for heart, lung cancer, high blood pressure, silent pnd and indigestion. What has been your experience please.
I have been weighing myself every morning and all I did was take a tablespoon of honey and vinager and mixxed it in my aloe vera jiuce that I drink every night and when I woke up I was 2 lbs lighter!
I have just stated today, come 3 weeks I will be more than happy to share the results.
We will try the mixture.
I started drinking this about a week ago. I had pains in my knees that I could hardly walk and even sleeping was difficult. I was taking 500 mg of naproxen and that added other awful symptoms. Well since drinking the honey and vinager I have stopped the medication and I feel so much better. The pain is gone in my joints. I like the taste of my drink now and I have to have it at least once or twice a day
Had yearly check-up at the end of 2013. Cholestrol was reported to me as high. Took apple cider and honey mix until next yearly check-up and cholestrol was back in the normal range... Jimmy
I have been drinking it for over 5 months and in don't have knee pain in the morning when I get out of bed also I have more energy and I am losing weight.
I am 17 years old and I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis 3 years old. I am so tired of consuming too much just too much medicine. I heard of this apple cider vinegar & honey from my teacher and I am now day 1, just started to use this product. I heard that it is very good for arthritis. I look up to it to give me a very good result.
Donna, coincidentally, a couple of days ago someone also wrote to me and told me about feeling thirsty after taking honey and cider vinegar. If the quality of the honey has been checked and ascertained to be 100% pure and unadulterated, then it could be very well a side effect. Considering the fact that you are also experiencing the urge to go to the bathroom more, unless you are pre-diabetic and are unable to take sweet foods, I reckon that these may be signs that the body is working on detoxing and cleansing. Take more fluid and drink more water to help the system flush and expel any toxins and impurities from your body.
I have just started this regime on Monday, today is Thursday. I drink it twice a day 1. In the morning 2. At night before bed I have noticed that I am not craving sweets, not as hungry but I am very thirsty. The only complaint I have so far us I feel the urge to go to the bathroom more and I only tinkle instead of the flow I feel is coming. I would like to know if this is a normal effect or do I need to change something.
I am interested in lowering my blood pressure, losing weight, and living a healthy lifestyle.
I just started doing this about 5 days ago to see if it would help get rid of a cold faster. I am on a prescription medication that has lots of drug interactions so I have to be very careful what I take and with this being an all natural product, I have no worries. It seems to be helping clear my sinuses and I don't have a barky cough associated with a cold.
My Mom will be 88 in October and has Bragg's ACV every day. She is incredibly healthy. The only thing that we can determine that is different from her and others is that she religiously take Bragg's ACV, everyday!
This is so true, the old remedies work people my grandmother left us alot of things like this to keep in good health.
Years ago I read Dr Jarvis's book and decided the reasoning was sound. I've been working landfills for over a decade and frequently had sinus infections and sunburns. Also, I had been feeling joint pain from arthritis which had developed after a broken wrist. The ACV/honey mix is a definite cure for me! Lately I have also added a pinch of cinnamon which helps control the blood sugar. Everyone I know who tells me of their arthritis (or lackluster hair or fatigue, etc) I tell my story. It has helped every one of them and me. For sunburns too! Just rinse the skin with the mix and, almost instantaneously, relief!
I've been using apple cider and honey for a short time now, but the mix I've been using is different, I use two tablespoons or AC and one of honey mixed with 1 cup of water. I learned about AC and honey from a forum that I ran into by accident. There was a man that claim miracles: "Apple Cider Vinegar has cured: varicose veins, weight lose, tendonitis, wrinkles. In April of 2005, I came across a booklet for ACV, at the time I was 50 years old I played sports in high school, a construction worker for 20 years and a mover for the last 15, so I have done a number on my body over the years. My daughter convinced me to start taking ACV... I have taken it everyday since! The health benefits have been many. The first thing I noticed was my hair and nail growth, doesn't seem like much but my hair was white and had no color, but was growing back in blonde! I thought that was amazing! Over all the years of abuse on my feet and ankles I had purple feet from the varicose veins, it really was a severe case, after two months of use my feet started to look clearer to me, but I wasn't sure so I started taking pictures....I now have NO varicose veins on my feet, legs or anything. In April of 2005 I was a size 38 pants, today I am a 32 pants. I have not done any extra exercise to achieve this, It simply melted the pounds away (I also have a six pack again). The ACV has given me a facelift, I do NOT look like I am 51! My wrinkles around my eyes have literally disappeared. My skin is tighter, firmer every where. I feel like a new man. Over the years while abusing my body in my everyday life (working) I developed new and painful body movements, aches where I never had before and eventually the Doc diagnosed me with tendonitis (really painful) in both of my shoulders, being a mover this isn't good for business, it really started hurting my paycheck (then I started the ACV). I really had not realized I stopped taking the naproxen the Dr. had prescribed until I went to see him for my physical. He asked me if I needed a new script, that's when I realized I used to live on those pills everyday and hadn't needed them once since I started taking the ACV, so I told the Dr. about the ACV he was awed, seeing the results for himself he decided to start taking it, in fact my Barber, Boss, Coworkers, Kids, Brothers and sister all now take it with health benefits of there own. I tell you I LOVE ACV it has changed my life and made me a new healthier man. I actually believe I have a long healthy life ahead. The recipe I use everyday is: 2 table spoons of ACV and 1 Tablespoon of honey. Add water to taste. I do this two times a day, everyday. Good luck to all in your journey to a healthier you!
My Dr. said not to drink too much acv. It will throw your electrolytes way off. I drink 2 capfuls twice a day. I think 2 times a day should be ok.
Just trying it today.
Since I have read the book of Dr. Jarvis way back in 1980, I started drinking the concoction of Apple Cider vinegar and honey in a glass of water 3x a day every meal time. The effect was so astounding because I was suffering so much with chronic migraine and it disappeared and now I don't even suffer from headache. My fingers remained straight and no pains at all. Unluckily, way back in 1998 I stopped taking the Apple Cider so now I am suffering with arthritis. But now I am taking it again because I remember it is a panacea for all diseases. I always recommend this stuff to everybody whom I know.
Started 2 weeks ago an lost weight with it 6 lbs, gives me energy, my joint don't hurt like they used to, no more head aches, have no bath room problems, etc.
Very interested in the above. I'm just starting taking it to get rid of kidney stones.
I made a research looking for a possible remedy for my recurring sore throat. I found this article and although this did not mention any possibility of curing sore throat, I started taking the potion right away. I just hope this honey and apple cider vinegar mix is one magic potion.
I use Bragg organic apple cider with the "mother". My local honey in a Republic of Tea tumeric ginger tea. It tastes just like a warm apple cider. I always tell others that my guts literally hate my guts and I have searched high and low for the perfect comfort; this drink mixture seems to do the trick to keep me regular, ease bloating, acid reflux, inflammation and general gut discomfort.
I am taking apple cider vinegar and honey for painful osteoarthritis and an interested in reading more.
I was told by the Doctor I needed therapy for arthritis in the hip area. I had pains through the abdomine area. I started using turmeric, honey and vinegar with the mother three or four times a day. In a week I was without pain. I was shocked. The turmeric is a natural spice used for inclination. The vinegar and honey I believe are the best natural way to heal our body. Many other benefits as well, please do yourself a favor and look the powerful things they do. Beats the doctors' ideas by far.
I was introduced to ACV barely a fortnight ago and I have seen a lot of improvement in my general wellbeing. I take ACV with honey juice first thing in the morning, before lunch and supper.
Yes, this really works!
I first tried apple cider vinegar and Manuka honey may 2014, it's now March 2015. I had arthritis in my left wrist which had me crying in pain most nights. I read about the benefits of drinking this online.It was like a miracle, after about 3-4 months the pain had gone completely. And I feel better in my health overall. I keep telling everyone to try it. I buy Picklecoombe brand from Holland and Barret, £8 for 500ml. It is ready mixed. 1 tablespoon in a glass of water morning and evening, preferably before meals. Please try and persevere with it. G
I plan on starting tonight Braggs Cider vinegar and honey drink before bedtime. I'm hoping to see improvements in joint pain I have started to experience.
I stop taking a lot of pills since I started it. Thank you.
Years ago when I gave myself a sick stomach by overeating processed and junk foods on a long car trip, the mother of the large sharecropper family I was visiting went to the cupboard and poured me apple cider vinegar and honey in warm water and made me drink it all up, claiming it was an old remedy. And it resolved the stomach ache so well that I continued to use the treatment for years, before cleaning up my diet. Now I'm older and wiser and just avoid most stomach pain by eating better, including being gluten free. But it does work if you're suffering stomachache.
Really lowered my cholesterol.
My mom had polymyalgia rheumatic and she wrapped brown paper bags soaked in bragg Organic raw apple cider vinegar on her body all day because the doctors said she would not walk and could go blind with this disease and to be honest she also took a tablespoon a day. That was many years ago now and she has turned 90 and is in perfect health and does not take any medicines what so ever but still takes her apple cider vinegar as her daughters do as well, every morning. I believe whole heartedly that it saved her life and continues to revitalize her and keep the healthy flora in our bodies.

I'm healthier today. I used to have numerous sinus infections and congestion, but nothing today.
I drink a tablespoon full of Braggs apple cider vinegar morning and night mainly to help with hbp protruding stomach.
I just recently had a bad cold/throat infection and went to the doctor. He didn't prescribe anything and as the days passed by I seemed to be getting worse and worse. I read up online on this wonderful drink and decided to try it. I boiled some water in a tea pot. In a cup I mixed the hot/warm water with 1 teaspoon of manuka honey, 2 tablespoons of Bragg's ACV and lemon juice of an entire lemon. I've been doing this for 3 days and it has been a great help in clearing up the infection. ( I think any kind of honey will do, not just manuka, but raw and organic honey works best).
I lost 3 lbs in three weeks with one tablespoon Cider Vinegar and one tea spoon honey before meal.
Apple cider and vinegar works wonders in our bodies. I've been using it for the last five months and the acidity i had and ovarian cysts have disappeared, my friend advised me to try and am glad it has worked. Every woman should try this.
I have been drinking this mixture since January 2015. I have noticed weight loss and a smoother complexion.
I have just started this & see a difference in my Joint Pain caused by Arthritis (OA) & Fibro and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I highly recommend women especially add this to thier daily diet.
We haven't come across reports on specific application of honey for liver cancer and cirrhosis. But when taken daily before bedtime, honey can be very helpful in building liver health in the long run: Honey Diet for Hibernation.
What health benefits does it help with liver cancer and cirrhosis.
I am 72 years old and at this age I want to try Honey and apple cider vinegar as I have heard it helps for the old bones and joints. I drink honey in my coffee and tea, instead of sugar, and I drink a honey and lemon juice mix for my cough and this helps. Thanks.
Makes me feel better all day.
Roe, you may want to check out Patricia Bragg's book mentioned under "Resource on Apple Cider Vinegar" in: Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey Remedy or D.C. Jarvis' Folk Medicine: A Vermont Doctor's Guide to Good Health.
I want a book on apple cider vinegar remedies.
I have used vinegar and honey for years I am now 81 years and still using this formula type mix. I am looking for more honey cinnamon and vinegar health care. I love it!!!
Linda, honey itself is beneficial for those who are trying to lower their cholesterol level. Ref: Honey Lowers Cholesterol. But it is believed that when combined with certain food, it has enhanced healing power. Both Honey and Cinnamon Remedy, an Ayurveda recipe and Honey and Cider Vinegar, Dr D. C. Jarvis' honey drink are used for lowering cholesterol. We do not have data to support which is more effective. It appears that individuals respond different to different foods/medicines. To find out which food is most effective for your own needs, you may want to take them separately and assess, ie honey and cinnamon, honey and cider vinegar at different times (eg a few weeks for each).
Is it the honey or the cinnamon or the vinegar that can reduce cholesterol? I've found recipe for honey/cinnamon and honey/vinegar - which is better, or combine all 3?
Thanks a lot for this page & hopefully would be a valuable remedy. Thanks again.
I mixed a cup of hot water with 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of Apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, and a dash of cinnamon. So easy to make and it always helps me feel better when I am sick!! It tastes really great too.
I had a sinus drainage cough that I could not shake. It started in October. On January 1st I started mixing 2 TBS Braggs ACV, 2 TBS raw honey, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 TBS lemon juice. Heat for 15 second in microwave and stir. I just drink it from the small dish. My nightly cough is gone. I have slept wonderfully for the last 3 nights. My shoulders quit aching from arthritis and I have a bit more energy. I do this each morning. Oh! My blood sugar is staying at 110.
I've been drinking 1 tbsp Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar and 1 tbsp pure honey (produced locally) mixture for about a month to 6 wks. I drink it 2-3 times per day mixed in a half glass of hot water. I sometimes mix in some cinnamon. It is delicious! I have noticed that it has eased my arthritis and seems to have significantly reduced my acid reflux occurances. Before starting the regimen, I was experiencing some arrhythmia, which has virtually been eliminated. I highly recommend the vinegar/honey drinks and plan to do this from now on.
AcV, honey ,and cinnamon have many uses. It lowers diabetes. It helps rid people of colds and cough. This combination is great for weight loss benefits. Also is suppose to help inflammation in arthritis etc.
