It will be in your best interest to confirm the diagnosis and exclude a malignant lesion. Furthermore, your doctor can help rid of the wart faster than home based solutions so you can be on your feet pain free in no time. Good luck. ...Read more

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

Is it okay to take cornwell apple cidar vinegar for weighloss? As I don't have organic at the moment.
OK but raw better:
It is OK but you will probably get more benefits from a raw organic form; apples have a lot of pesticides and Cornwell is pasteurized so does not have probiotic benefits; raw organic ACV is widely available and inexpensive so why not get it?
You will lose more weight if combining it with a low-carb (low starch) diet. ...Read more

Pasteurized: Pasteurized is safer.Get a more detailed answer ›
It's not: It's simply promoted for everything. It has a few interesting properties, but people are willing to believe in it. It's smelly, it's made from wholesome apples, and people see faces in the clouds when an illness remits in someone using it and they write testimonials. You owe it to yourself to get with an evidence-based holist in your community if this stuff interests you. ...Read more
Apple cidar vinegar is said to aid in fat loss because of its acidic content. What can I add to it to make it taste better? The taste is awful alone.

It tastes bad, it's natural, and it's safe -- the perfect make-believe treatment.

I have gargled. With apple vinegar and. Ate yogart for a week the wht is gone but my toung is so painful and red. Help?
Referring to Thrush?:
I assume you are referring to thrush-question above. Using the vinegar may have helped getting rid of the white patches, but it is acidic and may have caused more inflammation/redness, thus more pain (red, sore tongue =? Glossitis).
You may need both antifungal med and some steroid. Since your symptoms seem quite bothersome, consult your doc for treatment asap. There're many treatments!
Good luck. ...Read more
Is it true that if you eat daily apple vinegar has side effects in the future I heard that in the future wounds or operations do not heal becaus of it?
No effect: Consuming vinegar will have no effect on wounds or surgical recovery. Vinegar has been used in the past topically on wounds but this is now known to be ill-advised and has a negative effect on the progression of wound healing. In theory this had an antibacterial effect on the wounds. If this is true at all the damage to healing far outweighs any antibacterial effect. ...Read more

Don't play games: Hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism and thyroid tumors / cancers are all extremely serious.

Feel free try it if you like, but only as an adjunct to real rx; old graveyards are full of people dead from thyroid disease ; only 'natural rx'. ...Read more

Just 2 teaspoons before meals is the effective dose. **Avoid vinegar pills as they have been associated with esophageal injury....their pH and contents are not standardized. Avoid large dose of apple cider vinegar as it can cause hypokalemia. ...Read more
Adjunct only: The fact that it is promoted as being good for absolutely everything should tip you off that it's not really curing anything. You owe it to yourself to get with an evidence-based holistic practitioner in your community, rather than try to negotiate the welter of mostly-false claims about complementary medicine on your own. There's some stuff of real value. Best wishes. ...Read more
