Can apple cider vinegar really fight hair loss?

Can apple cider vinegar really fight hair loss?

Of course not: Apple cider vinegar is promoted for EVERYTHING. And with no side effects. It is extremely easy to make and sell; it's an interesting mix of substances but obviously it can't be all things to all sick people. It's probably harmless but you'd be foolish not to see through the chicanery. ...Read more

Hair Loss (Definition)

Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia. Alopecia areata occurs when the body's immune system attacks hair follicles and causes hair to fall out. Androgenetic (or androgenic) alopecia, on the other hand, is an inherited form of hair loss. With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

What does a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar a day do for your body?

Vinegar tonic: Vinegar belongs to the class of high nutrient foods that have strong detoxifying health properties. Although formal research has not provided ample support for this, many empiric traditions of medicine support its health benefits especially when taken daily like other tonics such as astralagus. I use a couple teaspoons with olive oil and sea salt for a tangy home made salad dressing. ...Read more

Does apple cider vinegar help to clean THC out of your system?

Does apple cider vinegar help to clean THC out of your system?

Vinegar doesn't work: And nothing else does either, at least nothing else that won't be detected by the current testing methods used. Water loading will reduce the creatinine and specific gravity of urine- that is detectable. Use of acidic substances (which actually makes almost no difference anyway) will alter the urine pH and that will be detected, and other cleansing agents don't work. STOP SMOKING POT - that works. ...Read more

It is true that apple cider vinegar helps lose weight? Is that food a termogenic?

It is true that apple cider vinegar helps lose weight? Is that food a termogenic?

No: Apple cider vinegar or any other vinegar isn't needed for good health. Apple cider vinegar is not an fda approved medication, so its effects and side effects are mostly uncertain (due to a lack of good research). As with everything else in life, too much can become a bad thing. That means a tiny bit of any vinegar a day might be fine, but taking a lot can hurt the body. ...Read more

We do need to acknowledge that patients may make an informed choice to use nonconventional treatments.

Can consuming raw apple cider vinegar cause constipation?

Not known to but...: Apple cider vinegar is a widely used folk remedy, but like most folk remedies research on it is limited. As best as I can tell, it is not known to cause constipation (see http://altmedicine. About. Com/od/applecidervinegardiet/a/applecidervineg.

Apple cider vinegar honey and water is it good for weight lost?

Apple cider vinegar honey and water is it good for weight lost?

Health Myths: Nope. Weight loss is successful with the changing of the way you eat, how you move and the composition of your diet calories with proteins being the necessary majority of a good diet's calories. Honey is sugar. Water is water and vinegar is not any magic product that leads to any true or lasting weight loss. ...Read more

When and how often should I apply apple cider vinegar on keratosis pilaris?

Never: Keratosis pilaris (little bumps around hair follicles usually on posterior arms) is generally caused by a deficience of vitamin a and of omega 3 fatty acids. Fish oil supplementation of at least 3000 mg of combined epa and dha and vitamin a (not beta carotene) of 25000 iu daily for 3 months should have the keratosis resolved. Maintenance of 1000 fish oil and 5000 vitamin a for maintenance. ...Read more

Will bragg's apple cider vinegar affect you in bad way while trying to get pregnant?

Should be safe: Like everything, apple cider vinegar can have side effects. It may weaken tooth enamel. There was a single report of a woman developing osteoporosis & low potassium after drinking 8 ounces a day for 6 years, but it is not known if that was the cause & I do not advise taking so much. In general apple cider vinegar is quite safe & there is no evidence it would be harmful in someone trying to conceive. ...Read more

Is the apple cider vinegar can really loose weight? And if it so what was the procedure of drinking?

Marketing, Marketing: Likely best way: consume none. Apples, like all fruits, have lots of carbs & carbs are most readily converted by liver into triglyceride fats & stored as body fat.

Small ones on children, wide distribution. Larger ones on sexual areas of young adults. They are not true warts, but a pox virus. Most people become immune as children to the small ones. The large ones are sexually transmitted but easy t ...Read more

Is apple cider vinegar is effective for weight gain? If yes, then how?

Probably not: The only study on apple cider vinegar (ACV) was done in Japan on 157 women. Half were given ACV the other group was not. The difference in weight loss was minimal, 1-2 pounds, which was regained after ACV was stopped. ACV purportedly lowers blood sugar by interfering with starch absorption. I wasn't able to find other medical studies supporting its use for weight loss. ...Read more

Is drinking apple cider vinegar good for strengthening your immune system?

No: That's silly stuff. The fact that it's promoted for everything should tell you that this is intended to mislead good, simple people. The one evidence-based, consistent finding in strengthening immune responses (tested by responses to antigen challenges) is heavy-duty aerobic exercise. If you're interested in this stuff, get with an evidence-based holistic practitioner in your community. ...Read more

Can apple cider vinegar affect my tooth patch? I'm drinking the Bragg's apple cider vinegar.

Risks: Some people use a couple of teaspoons in other liquids such as juices as a reported way to control weight and improve their mood. Even if this were the case, which I personally question, with continued use, you run the risk of having the acids wear away your tooth enamel. It's a risk I personally would not take. Is it one that you want to? There are better tried and true methods. ...Read more
