No: Apple cider vinegar is a folk / quack remedy that's promoted for everything. It helps people lose weight because it's nasty to drink, and afterwards you won't want to eat. There's no law against making baseless claims like this one, and if somebody says to you that it's rubbish, they look "unspiritual". Try to find why the muscles are tight & address the cause -- a pt may be able to help. ...Read more

I applied Apple Cider Vinegar last night to vagina to keep pH balanced, and it started burning. Now its sore/burned. Will it heal? Any otc meds?
Do not douche: Douching is never a good idea, with vinegar or anything else. It is not necessary for hygiene or "to keep pH balanced" -- in fact, it will screw up pH balance and harms natural bacteria that keep the vagina healthy. If you have symptoms like odor or discharge, you have an infection that needs medical attention, not douching. Burning probably will clear up in 1-2 days, but see doctor if it doesn't. ...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. ...Read more
What can I do to get rid of sore itchy throat? I am taking zithromax and used warm salt and apple cider vinegar water
Not bad.: The vinegar is an acid, which most opportunistic fungus and bacteria don't like to live in! The issue is that it often can't penetrate the nail enough to get to all the fungus. There are oral medicines and a couple topical solutions that are fda approved for this condition. See a podiatrist for all the options that may be best for you. ...Read more

Eat healthy/Exercise: Do not get into any of the stuff you are talking about. Go after the proven interventions. Eat low fat -plant based diet and exercise daily. These interventions will lower your LDL and increase the HDL level(use of unsaturated fats found in fish, nuts and in avocados) can also help. Avoid saturated fats(found in dairy products and in animal fats/meats). ...Read more
Suffering from acid reflux-bad breath, regurgitation. Ppis, baking soda, apple cider vinegar, antiacids don't work. Solutions?
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
