I was taking ACV for a number of health conditions. I was taking it at 1/2 to 1 tsp in 8 oz water and 1/4 tsp baking soda and a little honey. I started having uncontrollable and very painful exploding diarrhea. It was like the drink was going straight through me so I switched to the capsules of AVC thinking it may have been hard on my stomach but the same thing happened. I love the way ACV helps my depression and blood pressure and pains but I can't handle the diarrhea. What other forms are out there and what else can I use or do?

I have started taking ACV 2 tsp in warm water on an empty stomach and have noticed my urine staring to smell bad. Is this a normal side effect?

I recently started drinking the ACV detox and my skin is breaking out and my discharge has a light scent of apple cider that normal? Does anyone know why or how to stop it?

After drinking apple vinegar with mother, I was seriously constipated for two days like stones.

The same thing happens to me. I'm confused and trying to find answers.

For some reason, ACV aggravated my constipation and made it worse.

I would just like to quick add that yes Apple Cider Vinegar does really seem to help some people, it is soooo the opposite for me. *It is not one size fits all! * In my home 2 of us do NOT handle Apple Cider Vinegar well & the other 2 of us are fine & helped. Just because you, your relative, or your neighbor has success with Apple Cider Vinegar does not mean that all others will. FYI ours is the organic kind, in a glass bottle, & of course with the "mother". Also worth noting, Apple Cider Vinegar was bad for the health of one our black labs, but our other lab is perfectly fine with it. ---My negative reactions (that I am aware of) are as follows: my mineral count gets all messed up, my PH actually drops pretty badly, my body temp drops significantly, joints get very painful, general unwell feeling, can be constipating, & some serious tummy/gut pain. It is a shame, because I want it to help with x/y/z, but I wind up worse.

So..someone suggested me to take apple cider vinegar in the morning (empty stomach) for reducing belly fat and I started doing that since last couple of weeks. Today I missed to take it and what I realized is that my ankle pain is very mild today than what it was yesterday and day before. (I have mild ankle pain from a year or so.) Yesterday, the pain was more and I was able to notice it when I started driving. That's why I started searching on google to see if Apple Cider Vinegar is responsible for my increasing my ankle pain. But everywhere on internet I see it reduces such pain.

Confused.. I will try to monitor for next few days and I guess that is the only way I will get the right answer..

I have been taking apple cidar vinegar with lemon juice and cinnamon and honey and at first I would go to the bathroom first thing, but now I feel bloated and nasuaes during the day especially in the morning. Is this normal or what?

I have the same exact problem. I have been taking ACV for a while now for the health benefits and everything I read on it, but now I have issues swallowing certain foods. Not red meat necessarily but I can relate with the rice part. I also have issues these days with meats or anything that is somewhat dry in substance. I went to the gastroenterologist and they requested I do a swallow rest, which of course came back incocnclusive. I'm waiting on the next steps but they are trying to tell me I have GERD. I still feel that the only correlation I can see is the ACV and now seeing someone else with a similar issue makes me wonder. Let me know if you have come to a resolution of some kind on this.

I'm so glad to have seen this. I downloaded a recipe from Pinterest that called for 2TBSP of ACV per glass of water and advised to drink every day.

After one week I started feeling dizzy, heart palpitations, and shortness of breath. I got so nervous I even went to the ER. When they couldn't find anything wrong I did my research and saw this post along with others regarding ACC side effects. I've stopped drinking it and understand it will take about 7-10 days to get this stuff out of my system.

So much for this amazing home remedy!

Two weeks ago I was diagnosed with calcium deposits in my shoulders. I began using apple cider vinegar to resolve the crystals. Yesterday I suddenly became extremely dizzy and went to the hospital. I was told I had benign positional vertigo. Could the apple cider vinegar have released crystals in my ear?

I am also in menopause. I started using it a year ago because I read it was a toxin cleanser because I had fibroids. I was taking it in the day and at night. I did not know it was a blood thinner. I guess that explains why I was bleeding heavier than ever. I don't think I will continue to use it. I will just find something over the counter for fibroids at Walmart. I also have experienced weight loss when I go to the doctor. I sure don't need to lose weight. I knew it had a lot of good effects but I see it has side effects as well. Just be careful how much you take. I diluted mine in alot of water.

I have been upping my probiotics. I use about one bottle of kombucha (which I adore) ever other day and varying amounts of raw ACV (which I also like). I have been getting hives whenever I use them now. Hives doesn't seem like a common detox reaction. My scalp is especially affected, my waist, and then just spots here and there. I have had dandruff and itchy oily scalp for years. Recently I tried a different shampoo which appears to have eliminated the dandruff and oil. It isn't even a dandruff shampoo. I like using ACV in place of soap in the shower and to condition my hair.

After using ACV for six weeks, twice a day I mixed a teaspoon with soda water and really enjoyed it. I lost weight as I was not as hungry but I did develop itchy rash on my torso and worse, bleeding from the bowel and increased vaginal bleeds. I'm hoping now I've stopped the ACV, the bleeding will also stop as my HB levels are now quite low and doctors are concerned. Scopes to follow.
