Apple Cider Vinegar
I have been taking about 1 tablespoonful with lemon and (occasionally honey), warm water and a little grape juice in the morning. Always feel well with it. However recently I got overly keen and applied it straight to my hair/scalp, no water, and left on for hours. Not a good idea I think.
I have begun losing hair each time I brush/comb and never used to do so. After 6 weeks hair feels quite thin and very itchy on the scalp at the back. This might be a detox reaction so not too worried about that.
I am going to stop for a month to gauge reactions and if I continue to consume I shall take much smaller amounts. Otherwise generally healthy for my age. Did anybody else notice any hair loss directly attributable to ACV?
I love Apple Cider Vinegar but it doesn't love me. Every time I try it, I get a yeast infection. I read in one of my health books that some people with Candida can NEVER use ACV. Is there any way to overcome this?? I feel better when I drink it and need it for digestion.
Thank you!! Love earth clinic!!!!
Hi I have just started yesterday taking ACV 1 teaspoon in 8oz water (using lemon squash to hide the taste) drank 3 times before each meal and noticed a very full feeling and did not want to eat between meals immediately.... today had first thing ate small banana and 2 hrs later had 0% fat greek yog with some granola but could not finish it felt stuffed.... but then also started to notice taste in my saliva? is 3 times a day 1 teaspoon too much? Has anyone had same effect?

Hi Earth clinic,
I wanted to check with you about my intake of ACV which has been going for last 6 months, but I have lately got the pityriasis rosea rashes on my torso/stomach/ribs/back area.
Are they both interlinked i.e., can taking ACV cause these rashes with PR, should I be worried off? also can I still continue taking the ACV and would this worsen the rashes count .
I tried Apple Cider Vinegar for the fungus in under my thumb nail and I started having cramps, stinky gas, and intolerance to ice cream and chocolate. Never had these problems before. Stopped drinking it and I'm back to my self again.
I would love to know, when taking Apple Cider Vinegar shots straight, could it cause a rash, of the toxins coming out of my body?
Has anyone experienced prickling? For 6 weeks I took 1 tbs Apple Cider Vinegar in a glass of water in the morning to cure my acid reflux...which it did 100% and no reactions. Then suddenly after the 6 weeks I started getting itchy on my chest and a rash up my neck (like I do sometimes with certain wines) and now have pricking all over. I was feeling fabulous taking the ACV and so I tried only taking it every second day but with the same symptoms to then just a tsp in a glass of water but still no difference. I have stopped taking the ACV for the past 3 days and the prickling is almost gone....I really want to continue taking it but not sure if it's a good idea if it turns out I'm allergic to it?
I love how taking ACV makes me feel but ACV really makes my teeth sensitive. I tried 1 tsp a day through a straw and couldn't bare the sensitivity. How can I get it down without touching teeth?

I am feeling a little nauseous after upping my dosages of BSM, ACC, Bicarbonate of Soda and Coconut Oil (separately) for arthritis. I feel as if my kidneys are under pressure, though I have no history of kidney problems and my recent blood tests were fine. It could be an arthritis flare up or a "Healing Crisis" (I forget the term R_____(?)) I suppose but how would I tell the difference?
Not sure whether to back track or persevere! Thanks.

I read some information about ACV and it's positive effect on candida growth so I thought I would give it a try. After trying it twice a day (one tablespoon to 8 oz of water) for four days, I gave up. It was making me sick. I was having heartburn and feeling generally unwell and tired. I usually wake up in the morning with energy but instead I am dragging myself out of bed and struggling through the day. I just don't understand why it affects me this way but I am done!
I have been taking ACV and have been getting headaches. Is this normal or should I stop taking the ACV?
I am getting a headache taking acv. I hear so many good benefits. Does this happen to some people?
I started taking the ACV a few weeks now and I haven't seen my periods as yet for the month and the date is passed by 5 days now.
I don't know if I am posting this in the correct forum.
After reading thouroughly about the benefits of drinking ACV I decided to try it. I went to my health store and purchase a bottle 5% acidic, unpasteurised, etc... Could not get my hands on Br...., cause I live in France, but let's say is 100% organic and the lot.
I had 2 tbs with water in the morning, ( I take usually lots of water during the day), and 15 minutes later I develop this headache... I came back here to read that my body is detoxifing itself so I think ok, I will keep going. Everyday a headache, depleated energy (and I am usually ready for the gym in the morning), for the 5 days I drank this I could not find the energy to do anything on top of the slight headache my body was depleated ans screaming for cookies (which I never eat, sugar cravings).
My last intake of ACV was yesterday before lunch. I had a major final exam today and I just couldn't study due to the lack of energy and the headache. During the night I thought no more, tomorrow is a big day and I cannot afford to feel like this anymore, lack of energy, not wanting to exercise (which I usually do very pleased).... No more ACV.
I had been reading also about coconut oil, so this morning I decided to have a tablespoon of it, and although my headache didn't go away immediately, it faded away gradually. By the time my exam started I was feeling more energised than the previous 5 days while drinking ACV. I am still using it topically on my face.
I want to say that the first time I opened the bottle of ACV I gagged, now I am kind of used to it and doesn't disgust me that bad. I would want to continue with it, but I need some input as to why I feel so bad while drinking it.
Any input/help, very much appreciated.
Just a question and not sure if anyone has had it happen or if it is even related. Three days ago I started taking Braggs ACV 2 tablespoons 3 times a day in a huge glass of water. On the second day on wakining I was very stiff and my joints ached And even now I feel the same way. I did not work out, I am not sick. Is this just me or has anyone else encountered this odd symptom? I had tried ACV for GERD and some energy as I heard it could help both. I also heard it helps arthritis, but it seems like I'm having the opposite effect. Any suggestions would be helpful.
