Is apple cider vinegar supposed to burn your throat when swallowed?

Is apple cider vinegar supposed to burn your throat when swallowed?

Possibly: Apple cider vinegar is acidic, so it is entirely possible it could irritate your throat when you swallow it, especially if you swallow it without diluting it with anything else. If your throat is irritated for some reason, then the vinegar will burn more. It is not generally harmful to swallow it in pure form. Many people do this as a part of a dietary regimen to reduce appetite before meals. Read more

Another option is to take otc antacids like zantac or Pepcid symptomatically for a while. If all else fails, then you may need to stay on protonix (pantoprazole). Read more

What's good for a sore throat? I have apple cider vinegar, organic honey, salt, chamomile tea, eggs & rum.

Honey and Tea: If you have honey at home, you might want to try mixing honey and fresh lemon juice in some warm water and sip. Alcohol should be avoided since it is dehydrating. While there is certainly nothing wrong with chamomile tea, peppermint or licorice tea may be more comforting. Apple cider vinegar may well be irritate the throat unless diluted significantly.

What can I do to get rid of sore itchy throat? I am taking zithromax and used warm salt and apple cider vinegar water

What can I do to get rid of sore itchy throat? I am taking zithromax and used warm salt and apple cider vinegar water

No great way: I suspect the problem is likely viral but the itching part points to allergy. Thus we need to ascertain whether the throat is itchy or sore since the causes are vastly different. If itchy, try oral antihistamine, if sore try OTC analgesic lozenges. Read more

Can apple cider vinegar cure fatty liver?

Can apple cider vinegar cure fatty liver?

No: The fact that apple cider vinegar is promoted as being good for everything invites an obvious conclusion. It's natural, it tastes bad, and it's not patentable -- all qualities that make it perfect thing to sell to folks seeking a "natural remedy". If you're interested in supplements, get with an evidence-based holist. Fatty liver is serious and I wish you the best in managing it. Read more

Can I use apple cider vinegar while pregnant to cure the trich?

Can I use apple cider vinegar while pregnant to cure the trich?

Nope: Vinegar will not cure trichomonas. You need an antibiotic called metronidazole. Discuss with your obstetrician. There are no effective "natural" treatments and vinegar will not work. NEVER douche with anything, especially when pregnant. Very unhealthy, even dangerous. Don't do it. Get tested for other STDs: gonorrhea and chlamydia are common in women with trichomonas. Read more
