Urban myth...: ...or you could call it an old wives' tale. Drinking cider or any other vinegar, or any acid, won't do anything to "clean the kidneys" or otherwise help your health. If you like the taste, feel free (in moderation). Otherwise find a drink that tastes better! ...Read more

May need it out: If the stone is not passing on its own, you may need to have it removed by a urologist. There are many techniques available depending on the situation. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Is apple cider vinegar good for reflux?

Not so much: Reflux can be serious. Apple cider vinegar is promoted for everything -- and this alone should tell you something. Something as simple as elevating the head of your bed may help more. Staying trim and fit is a plus; you may not be able to eliminate reflux but you can control the symptoms. Your physician knows how to manage it and when to do endoscopy. ...Read more

Is apple cider vinegar good for eczema?

Hadn't heard that...: I am a big fan of olive oil (extra virgin) as moisturizer for eczema. As i tell my patients, use the olive olive, but don't put your kid in the salad. I have not heard of vinegar as it would seem to dry out the skin, rather than moisturize it. Eczema is a tough disease and keeping the skin moist is key. Good luck... ...Read more
