Postings on How Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey Drink Cures (2009-2011)
I have been taking cider vinegar and honey for over three years. I have lots of energy and few pains. I did stop it for about three months, because of laziness on my part and felt laggy and very little energy. I started back on it this week.
I have been using the Apple Cider vinegar and honey mixture, off and on, for several years. About 2 months ago, I started using the mixture again, twice a day. One Table spoon of each with 6 oz of water and a couple ice cubes. This drink is very pleasurable to me and I have this in the morning right after I come back from walking my dog. I fix the drink, maybe with a crumpet ( toasted) or a bowl of Old Fashion oats, then I have my coffee. When lunch time rolls around I mix my second daily elixir, same as the AM drink. Before bedtime I take a Table spoon of honey, just started that routine a week or so ago. Guess I will live forever, so it appears:) Anyway, I have gotten into this routine and it seems to have helped with any soreness I had. My wife thinks I'm wacky, but it works for me. It has been, at least a year since I have used raw sugar in any of my cereals. I have replaced the sugar with honey, better for you and I like it's taste over sugar. Hope I have inspired someone to give this mixture a try, not for a day or two, but at least 6 wks if you are having any mild pain in your joints. You will be surprised how well you will feel.
This vinegar and honey mix does take care of so many health problems.
Have used apple cider vinegar for a wk now and my body has changed. I have alot of energy. I had digestion problems. I was eating alot, now i eat small portions. I was always tired. Apple cider vinegar and honey works wonders indeed.
Best ever for acidity, taste great.
I been using ACV FOR ABOUT 10 - 15 years to control my blood sugar now that I know about adding honey to it I can cure it. I remember my grandfather taking apple cider vinegar for years.
Well, Jessa, you won't get the full health benefits from pasteurised or heated honey, but it's probably still better than highly refined table sugar.
Hi,is it okey to match my Acv into not really pure honey or not raw honey to my drink every morning as I awake? Cause pure honey isn't available now so I was forced to buy the not a raw one though it had honey but its already cooked.
I have arthritis & acid reflux an am 73 years old. I go the the gym 4 days a week and coach girls softball. I pitch batting practice and catch balls. Could not do it without cider/venigar drink. My fingers are so deformed & this activity was so painful that I quit 3-yrs. ago. Back at it again with a lot less pain. Most of the time it keeps stomach acid @ bay, but I must not eat heavy or late.
Not just meditating but I am also looking for a fastest, affordable and powerful herbal remedy for cleansing my blood. I just want to be protected, healthy and live longer. I am positive to see the results within less than or a month.
I put some honey in a crock pot and a swig, maybe a tablespoon, of vinegar along with maybe a tablespoon of plant material. Rosemary or spearmint for instance. I heated this on low.The result - honey is in liquid form. I think if I had added less vinegar, it would still be a colloid. I strained out the plant material and put it in a sterilized canning jar with a boiled lid along with some of the honey. I knew people who did this. Have not thought about it for decades. You can just do this with vinegar and honey to keep it from turning into a,solid. If the vinegar is special, you add it at the last moment and it sounds like yours is.
Russell, what we are suggesting in this page is honey and apple cider vinegar. For cleansing purpose, the best time to take would be in the morning before breakfast. But you could also consume the mixture with meals as a digestive tonic. The instructions are given in the page as well:
"Essentially, to prepare: 1. Mix apple cider vinegar (half to 1 tablespoon) and raw honey (half to 1 tablespoon). 2. Dissolve in a glass of water (10-20oz). 3. Take it once or twice daily."
I guess you could add other ingredients like lemon juice, cinnamon, green tea, etc., but we are not sure about their synergistic effects. The above concoction of honey and cider vinegar is specially recommended by D.C. Jarvis, a renown medical doctor. He calls it honegar: Is Apple Cider the Same as Apple Juice?
Dear Friend, when the best time to take , Apple Cder Vinegar and Lemon Juice, and should I add any other ingredients? Thanks. Russell L Aharonian
Drinking Apple Cider Vinager raw with honey gives me peace of mind. It feels like I'm putting on armor before I start my day.
Not only makes me feel fuller b4 eating anything but keeps me feeling healthy. I also use cinnamon or other fruit juices to keep it tasty and a little change. This detox is good for what ails you and for good health. Good to do this two three times a week If not every morning.
I've started using apple cider vinegar and honey in the morning as a concoction I mix up and drink with a straw. I use organic ACV and local honey from my farmers market. I have noticed a little more energy and haven't felt my blood sugar drop like I use to. I hardly ever get sick and this may be one of the reasons why. I met a gentleman that was 70 and he drinks it every day. I swear he doesn't look a day over 50. That is one reason I decided to give it a try and after all the positive things I have read about using this formula.
I just found I have uterus cancer, I also have hypertension, also obese, looking for something to knock this down. I have read articles of people doing their own thing to clear their illness, so I figured acv, raw honey, lemon juice might help mine, I know I have underlying issues, which I have to clear.
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.
