Apple Cider Vinegar as Treatment
So far, you have learned the different uses of apple cider vinegar, but there is more to it. Really! This chapter will give you suggestions on how you can use ACV to treat even the common cold.
1.The common cold
Apple cider vinegar boosts your body’s immune system, thus strengthening, and protecting your body against infections, like the common cold.
It might surprise you to know that acid reflux is the result of having too little acid, rather than having too much. Immediately after you drink water with ACV (8 0z. water with 1 to 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar), your acid reflux is alleviated. Drink this daily.
3.Minor scrapes and scratches
For scrapes or scratches that aren’t freely bleeding but can still smart, add a teaspoon of ACV to a cup of water and dab the wound with a cotton ball or tissue.
4.Sore or strep throat
This is unfortunately quite a common ailment for certain susceptible individuals, but you can ease the symptoms with apple cider vinegar. Add 1 to 3 teaspoons ACV to an 8 0z. glass of warm water and gargle.
Add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon honey to a glass of warm water. The infection may disappear in just a matter of days.
Apple cider vinegar has high potassium content and this element helps slow down the production of mucus. Adding to ACV’s potency for nasal decongestion is the acetic acid it contains, which prevents the growth of bacteria. Drink this three times a day – most importantly before bed – when suffering nasal congestion: ½ cup warm water mixed with ½ cup ACV and 1 teaspoon honey.
