Raw Apple Cider Vinegar for RSD

I was introduced to the benefits of raw apple cider vinegar (“ACV”) by my qi gong healer a few years ago. It took me a while to agree to drink it. It’s freaking gross. BUT, the benefits have been so amazing that I now always have some in the house. Remember to dilute it and rinse your mouth after (do NOT brush your teeth right away). While it goes in super acidic, it actually makes the body more alkaline.  It has worked so well for me before, at one point it completely turned off the burning in my legs. The only issue was, at that point, I had to stop drinking it because my body no longer accepted the ACV presumably because I started to affect my body’s PH too much. So it is something I do not use all the time but I think many people do a few tablespoons daily without issue. Frankly, i think I got greedy and drank too much of it once I saw how much it helped the burning in my legs.

Currently I am trying to drink it every day in order to help me lower the acidity in my body and hopefully help me lose this extra weight.  Additionally, i have started using it in some of my epsom salt baths. My skin feels amazingly clean after.  The ACV is supposed to draw toxins out. Remember to drink RAW apple cider vinegar “with the mother” which is the cloudy good stuff in the bottle. Bragg’s really is the only good brand i have found. I am super proud that i once beat the stomach flu that took out my entire office for days and i cut a sinus infection in half using this stuff. It’s legit. Here are some of the amazing things it is believed to do:

1.  Helps to clear acne
2.  Promotes digestion as the acetic acid content slows down the digestion of starch which can lower the rise in glucose that commonly occurs after meals.
3.  Natural cure for constipation by improving bowel irregularity and removing toxins from the body at a faster rate
4.  High in minerals and potassium to help slow down the ageing process of your skin – potassium also protects your teeth, prevents hair loss and stops those runny noses
5.  Helps to reduce sinus infections and sore throats
6.  Encourages the growth of healthy bacteria within your body
7.  Eases menstrual cramps
8.  The pectin content helps regulate blood pressure while reducing bad cholesterol
9.  Protects against food poisoning
10. Fights allergies in both humans and animals
11. Prevents muscle fatigue after exercise
12. Strengthens the immune system
13. Increases stamina
14. Alleviates symptoms of arthritis and gout
15. Prevents bladder stones and urinary tract infections
16. The malic acid content introduces those important anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties
17. The calcium content helps to improve bone and teeth health
18. The ash for alkaline content helps your body maintain correct pH levels for a healthy alkaline state
19. Provides a natural remedy for heartburn, acting as a replacement for those toxic heartburn medications
20. Helps clear up skin conditions and blemishes giving a smoother texture and complexion
21. Raw apple cider vinegar may also help with joint pain and stiffness
22. Helps to break down fats so that your body can use them rather than store them and can also help to reduce levels of glucose



Remember, I am NOT a doctor. This is just something that has worked for me. Do your own research and ask your doctor.

  1. Agree 100% ACV is great stuff.
    I add it to a very small amount of fresh, organic apple juice to get it down,
    Otherwise, it ain’t happenin’…….
    I also found ACV (not Braggs ;{ ) in pill form that I take when I just can’t choke down the Braggs.
    Can ya tell that I don’t care for the taste?!?

  2. 1 more thing:
    You said that the ACV is too acidic for ya,you might try pH-Basic.
    I take it to help with my chronic heart burn. It has sodium AND potassium bicarbonates along with a few herbs, etc for good measure.
    Vitamin Shoppe sells it & you can read a bit more about it on their site.
    It has helped immensely.

  3. Thank you for the info.! I will check it out. I do think that my issue was that i drank too much of it and affecting your ph too much is sketchy. I don’t need to be creating some new funky disease. I will definitely check it out! BTW, try some of the ACV in one of your baths and tell me if you notice a difference in your skin. xoxo
