You know how after you vomit, you are left with that very acidic taste in the back of your throat? Yeahhhhhh… That’s what apple cider vinegar tastes like. And how would I know? Because I have been taking some every day. Willingly. I take a deep breath and begin to chug my eight ounce mixture of water and two tablespoons of ACV while telling lies to myself over and over that “it’s just orange juice.” I don’t dare breathe through my nose as smell and taste go hand-in-hand as they use the same types of receptors (per Merriam-Webster: a nerve ending that senses changes in light, temperature, pressure, etc., and causes the body to react in a particular way.).
Some people don’t mind the taste very much and that leaves me in shock. Although, I always have been picky with my food/drinks.
For some time now, I have heard how healthy ACV is for a person, from clearing acne to weight loss (it has to be a particular brand though–Bragg, “The Mother.” See picture). Recently I read a Facebook post in a Lupus group that I follow and the person mentioned they talked with their doctor and decided to try taking ACV. They found that it helped either lessen flare time or lessen the flare in general. It could be both, I can’t quite remember (Yay Lupus Fog!). Haha. I do remember it affected a flare in a positive way. Reading that bit of info gave me the motivation to try it and see what it did for me.
I have been taking it in the morning for about a month now. However, the last week and half I have only been taking it about every other day. I don’t know how much longer I can take it! I have noticed my acid reflux and menstrual cramps are better.
A friend of mine mentioned to take it with some honey and warm it up. Tried it, couldn’t stand it. I am not much of a ‘warm drink’ person. I wish I was because it would give me more options! She also mentioned to maybe try mixing cinnamon or lemon with it. I keep forgetting to buy it at the grocery store but I’m pretty sure that I am just going to give up on the ACV.
Next week I will be trying a new product to see if it helps with my ailments so stay tuned! 😀

Good luck with your next strategy. I’ve heard good things resulting from taking a glass of ACV but keep forgetting to try it out. Luckily I don’t mind plain hot water. 😊
Hehe! Thank you! I think my next experiment will work out much better than this! 🙂
Used to know someone who swore by it. Helped them tho but the smell was vile good luck xx
I survived a work stint in a natural grocer where “everyone” used this stuff. I couldn’t be convinced then, but in the couple years since, I’ve been aware that the thought is still tickling the nether regions of my brain.
I’m just glad to hear someone actually say what I expect to hear about this. My old co-workers were deep into some conversion conspiracy to get others to use it and said everything from “it’s not so bad” to the brazen “it’s great!”
Buncha liars. 😂😂😂
I think you can get apple cider capsules? So you wouldn’t have to taste or smell it! It is always worth trying new things to see if they help with ailments – good luck. 🙂
You can get pills, but the health experts say to use the Bragg brand that is shown. I don’t think Bragg has capsules.
Oh I see. Never mind. Anything is worth trying – once! 🙂

SHE’S SWEET AND THE VINEGAR IS SOUR—JUST ADD COOKED CHICKEN MORSELS? I’M NOT SO SURE I WANT TO TRY THIS!
😀 Hehe! Thank you!
I have heard this is great for a glowing skin too. It’s just that the taste is too good(pun intended) 🙈😂
If you get the acid reflux under control, ACV goes down a lot easier in a smoothie.
I will keep that in mind! I temporarily stopped it while I try the CBD oil.
I don’t know if the pain is similar but cherries were a huge help in my Fibromyalgia flare-ups. I ate them like candy for about 5 years when I lived in a colder climate.
