Can soaking in apple cider vinegar relax tight muscles?

Can soaking in apple cider vinegar relax tight muscles?

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?

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.

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

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
