Go ahead: However, apple cider vinegar, which is promoted by the unscrupulous as being good for everything, will probably just be a waste of your money as it is for basically everything. Thankfully, it's cheap. Please forgive my frankness -- the world's full of silly stuff. Don't ignore your medication or let this concoction give you a false sense of safety as you deal with this serious, lifelong infection.
