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?
Had the same thing happened to me. And I am in menopause.
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 .
Your comments about adverse side effects of ACV are similar to my experiences. I started taking 1 Tsp ACV in 8 oz. Hot water daily for arthritis pains about 2 wks go. I now have acne on my chin that seems to be spreading. I've also had stomach bloating and maybe a little weight gain. God help us.
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?
To Dear E.C.
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.
EC: We think you mean Herxheimer Die-Off Reaction
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 have same symptom like you, my left hand fingers numb after 3 days drinking AVC, did you find out what caused the symptom? AVC does a good job for my Sinus Congestion, don't want to give it up. Did you continue drinking AVC?
