    Vinegar! Any ideas?

    I have been seeing a lot about vinegar how it is good for your health lately. I wonder if any of you have any ideas how one would drink vinegar. Does one just drink it plain, or mix it with something the only thing I can think is in beet pickle juice. Or are there vitamins out there called vinegar...?

    I only buy apple cider vinegar since other than red wine, red or white balsamic I only use apple. I don't like the taste of white and it will do the same as the apple. I buy it by the gallon, not only do I use it in my foods, like over spinach or cooked cabbage, or pickled beets, use it to freshen and whiten my clothes, it removes smells better than anything, I have it in a spray bottle because my dog has allergies to fleas and it helps her not itch so much, the vet says its good to clean their ears out with and prevents yeast infections and helps clear them up so I'm sure it'll do the the same for us. Do a google search and you can find tons of ways to use it in foods besides salads and some of the other things that I've mentioned. I also use it when I make poached eggs, a little in the water helps the eggs gel around themselves instea of running and that's also why I put it along with a heavy dose of salt in my water when boiling eggs. The vinegar will keep them congelled if they crack so all the good stuff doesn't run out into the water and the salt helps them peel better.

    you can add some to your drinking water but I am not sure what you would gain. I used to work with a lady who did that. I asked her why, she said it helped to keep your body slightly acid and that was good.

    A - you are taking 5% acid vinegar, diluting it with water, and putting it in your stomach which is already extremely acid.(PH of about 1).

    B- your body knows and controls how acid/alkaline it should be, if you could change it significantly, you would DIE. Look up acidosis.

    I did not tell her any of this, my theory is, don't tell anyone something they don't want to hear.

    I heat white vinegar to boiling and then take the pot through the house so the steam will disinfect the air. I do this every day when someone has a cold or flu. The vinegar smell goes away in a few minutes. My family loves crock made sauerkraut, we eat it like salad, so we get enough natural vinegar.
    Got fabric?

    ​If you have digestion problem due to low acid, then vinegar can help. If you have acid reflux or too much acid, it will get worse.

    There is differing views on everything. I don't take it but know others who do. Check out the article re type 2 diabetes on this link, near the bottom. http://bragg.com/products/bragg-orga...r-vinegar.html

    Some swear by adding a cup of apple cider in a quart size canning jar ( the biggest one) , fill the jar with water and refrigerate.. drink a glass a day... Never tried.. it just sounds yucky..

    Sorry if this sounds gross but I had an issue with what I believe to be a toenail fungus. Very small spot but anyway I heard that using vinegar helped to get rid of it. It is working. I used white vinegar and just rubbed some on it everyday. Oh well!
    Yes you can drink apple cider vinegar but I would add honey or sugar. I have made the beet pickle juice when I fix pickled eggs. Have to taste the juice to season to your taste. makes really great looking deviled eggs and great on a salad.

    I have type 2 diabetes. I drink 8oz. water, 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar and 1 tsp. honey. You could also mix 1-2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar with apple juice. (too much sugar for me) This also helps with my fall allergies. My sister has too much acid in her tummy so she can't do this. But she does soak her hands in the mixture below to help ease her arthritis. Vinegar reduces inflammation and disinfects too.

    I use white vinegar to soak my feet (plastic shoe box filled 1/4 way with luke warm water and 3T of white vinegar) soak for 15 minutes. rub feet dry with towel. Removes dead skin and keeps fungus or bad stuff away. (My foot doctor gave me that one)

    What she said!

    I have a dear friend who nearly died doing the vinegar diet... Please don't try drinking it even by the teaspoon.

    Vinegar and Oil vinegrette salad dressing is a good way to get vinegar for health, I think the health benefit is with just one or two tablespoons

    This is my true story: I have cured Infected Sinus by drinking small shots of Apple Cider Vinegar for several days in a row. I take a little cup, put in one or two tablespoons of the vinegar, and add about quarter cup of water. (ratio about 1:3 or 1:4) Then, I drink it. Three or four times a day. For 4 or 5 days in a row. My sinus cleared up. I have waited few days to see if this remedy is really real... and I'm convinced. But one warning: the vinegar will "clean" your tongue so thoroughly that it will be sore, the taste buds will be in shock. Better to drink your little cups with a straw.
    My fabric talks to me.

    I add a little vinegar and sugar to the egg mixture when I make Deviled Eggs and also to my homemade Sloppy Joe's. Have had people tell me I make the best Sloppy Joe's.

    My in-laws did this for awhile. I think the said it was good for the immune system, cholesterol, several things. I was not convinced to try it.

    But, they where not using 'regular' apple cider vinegar. It was some type of natural stuff, I think it was cloudy.

    @ /romanojg
    thank you for the info regarding pet skin care.
    We have an older dog that has come up with severe flea allergies in the couple years and we have been battling skin issues ever since.
    I just read to try mixing tea tree oil in his shampoo and then rubbing him down with coconut oil...the shampoo sounds ok, but the oil rub down sounds like a mess in the making.
    I am going to try a combo of the shampoo and then the vinegar.

    My father had very bad gout in both big toes. Each morning he soaked his feet in a warm water with vinegar in.
    White vinegar is good for cleaning.
    Isn't bicarbonate also good for skin problem sordid I dream this?

    Small bowls or cups of vinegar sitting in a room will remove odors from the air such as oven smells, onions, fish etc.

    I put apple cider vinegar in our pets water bowls (the big ones outside and the one in the pigeon aviary), the budgies just get a tiny drop in their small bowl. It is supposed to be good for coats, arthritis, digestion etc. I do know for sure it stops any algae or germs multiplying in the hot weather.

    I have read that if you put vinegar in the water that you wash your fruits in, it'll help get rid of the bacteria etc. & keep your fruits fresh longer.

    A foot doctor told me several years ago her neighbors drank vinegar everyday and their skin smelled like vinegar. They even made their little kids drink it too. She was very much against the practice.
    I would not drink it no matter how good it is for the body. Yuck, Yuck.
