Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar
When acid crystals harden in the joints and tissues of any animal, the joints become stiff and the tissues hardened. The meat becomes tough and tasteless. But, when the animals are given apple cider vinegar regularly, the precipitated acid crystals enter into a solution and pass out of the body, thus making the body tissues healthier and tender. This applies to human flesh also.
Now, when body tissues hold all the precipitated acid crystals they can, the crystals then appear in the bursae and the joints of the body, resulting in arthritis and bursitis. 1 to 2 tsp of apple cider vinegar with 1 to 2 tsp of raw honey in a glass of distilled water daily will help relieve the stiff aching and prematurely old joints. You be the judge. See how elastic and well oiled your joints will become.
The healthiest person in the world must continually fight the buildup of acid crystals in the body. The strongest enemy of acid crystals is the organic apple cider vinegar, raw honey and distilled water cocktail. This powerful mixture puts the acid crystals in solution so they can be flushed out of the body by the kidneys and other organs of elimination.
Most people have lost their normal contact with nature and simple natural living. They no longer know how to eat the way God intended.
If you suffer from premature old joints and hardened tissues, take the ACV mixture several times daily. Eliminate or cut down on animal proteins and stop all refined sugars and see how very youthful your body will feel.
You will find after several months of the ACV and honey cocktail taken once or twice daily, the misery will be gone from your joints. You will discover you can walk or run up several flights of stairs without any effort. You will notice that you look younger and above all, that you feel younger than you have for years.
Over the years we have seen many stiff jointed, prematurely old people transform themselves into new, youthful, healthy people. We cannot do it for you. You must make the effort to give this ACV and honey program a chance to prove what it can do for you! We challenge you to begin today!
Many people have some preconceived idea that natural apple cider vinegar is harmful to the body. It is distilled, malt and synthetic vinegars that must be avoided.
Let us assure you that there is nothing in this wonderful natural apple cider vinegar that can in any way harm your body! People ask us about the merits and benefits of apple cider vinegar. See the inside front cover for some of the miracles of apple cider vinegar.
Animal proteins and fats have a tendency to thicken the blood and the natural acids in apple cider vinegar help to keep the blood healthier and thinner.
Natural food acids served along with animal proteins are designed to lessen the thickening influence of these heavy proteins. In order for blood to circulate freely throughout the body, the blood should be thin. When blood thickens, it puts a strain on the heart. Then the blood pressure goes up and other problems start.
Remember blood has to circulate all over the body through the arteries, blood vessels and tiny capillaries. It is impossible for blood to circulate freely through these hair like pipes when it is thickened with too much protein.
Several years ago, we met a woman with extremely high blood pressure. We put her on a two day ACV, honey and water program with nothing to eat for 48 hours. She had an ACV cocktail 5 times daily, plus 4 glasses of distilled water. In forty-eight hours, her blood pressure had dropped many points. The buzzing in her ears ceased, and her dull headache stopped. In a short period of correct eating (no salt, saturated fats, tea, coffee, etc.) combined with her daily ACV program she brought her blood pressure back to normal.
People ask if ACV will cure their arthritis. This is not possible. Curing is an internal biological function that only the body can perform. A scientific, natural diet, deep breathing, exercise, rest, relaxation and all forms of natural hygiene are required to put the body in a condition to cure itself. ACV is an important part of the program. When all of the supreme forces of nature are used, the body will turn from the sick-side to the well-side. Health is something you must desire, earn and always protect!
Because of its anti-bacterial properties, apple cider vinegar for acne is a great substitute to treat conditions normally treated with antibiotics which makes it one of the most effective home remedies for acne.
Apple cider vinegar kills the bacteria responsible for causing acne andhelps balance our natural PH level, the measure of acidity in our skin. When used topically, it also acts to absorb excess oil which clogs the pores causing inflammation.
To use this treatment topically, dilute 1 part apple cider vinegar with 3 or 4 parts water. Using a clean cotton ball or clean piece of cotton, dab the solution onto the affected area and leave on for about 10 minutes then rinse off. This should be repeated 3 times a day until the acne clears. For more severe cases you may either leave this ratio solution on overnight and rinse off in the morning, or reduce the ratio of water to vinegar by 2 to 3 parts, but this stronger solution should not be left on overnight. It has also been used by some in a less diluted solution and even full strength, but it is best to start out with the most diluted form first, testing your skin sensitivity at each level and working your way up in strength gradually. A tingling sensation may be normal for this treatment, but if a burning sensation occurs, rinse it off immediately and use a more diluted strength or try using it as a tonic drink. As you use this apple cider vinegar for acne treatment, remember to continue on with your proper washing and cleansing routine in between for maximum benefit. It may also be beneficial to moisturize your skin after as this topical method does tend to dry the skin out.
and another healthful tip: Blackstrap Molasses
JEM from Fort Worth, TX writes: “I kept getting breakouts on my chin and around my mouth. I somehow stumbled onto blackstrap molasses. I take two tablespoons a day (in Stash’s double spice chai tea- really good) and it really seems to help. No new breakouts. Just the fading red marks from the old ones. I pretty certain it’s the molasses because I stopped taking it for about a month while I was on vacation and the acne came back within a week.
I also did some research- blackstrap contains copper which helps skin repair itself and a bit of zinc which when taken consistently has the effect of an antibiotic/anti-acne prescription.
