That's normal: Forgive my frankness. You shouldn't do this to yourself. You're being played for a sucker by charlatans. You're seeing normal epithelial mucus coagulated by acid. If you buy into phony "yeast" or "biofilm" disinformation, you will never feel well again. If you're interested in "natural healing", find an evidence-based holistic practitioner in your community. But stop this stuff. ...Read more

Can someone do an enema with apple cider vinegar diluted in water to help get rid of a stomach virus faster?

Not really: You will probably have a better response by drinking a tablespoon or two of the Apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. Taking a high potency probiotic of at least 50 Billion cfu twice a day between meals can also be beneficial. ...Read more

Will Heinz apple cider vinegar work like brAggs apple cider vinegar?

Will Heinz apple cider vinegar work like brAggs apple cider vinegar?

Not entirely but...: Bragg's is raw/unpasteurized whereas I'm fairly sure Heinz is pasteurized. Pasteurization degrades some nutrients and enzymes that are beneficial. Also, Bragg's is organic whereas Heinz is not, and apples are in the EWG "Dirty Dozen" and high in pesticide residues. Heinz should have many of the same benefits but, given a choice, I recommend Bragg's. ...Read more
