Remember the days of old when Grandmother strapped a warm mustard pack to our congested chests when we had a cold? Or used a warmed tea bag to rid pink eye, a clove of garlic to stop an earache, or prepared a mixture of chaparral and olive oil as a cure for itchy skin? I do.
Distances between townships, limited funds, and the lack of readily available medical professionals and facilities all dictated that a woman be not only a wife, mother, and housekeeper, but doctor as well. Folklore healing practices, curative uses of herbs, and other medicinal “family secrets” were stealthily guarded and passed down from one generation to the next.
Of course, some of yesteryear’s touted cures were not truly cures at all. Superstition and myth “remedies,” without any practical application, crept into the mix. Little by little and through the years, suspicion as to the validity of any natural, herbal remedy began to take root.
For instance, witch doctor type practices such as hanging herbs that resembled tears around a child’s neck to help him cut teeth. “Reading” tea leaves to foretell future love interests, and assertions like placing certain spices under the pillow would improve memory, prejudiced many toward the genuine curative uses of herbs.
That is why some modern day practitioners regard the medicinal use of herbs as “quackery;” nothing more than old-wives tales. There are, however, a growing number of otherwise conventional medical professionals who acknowledge what Grandmother knew all along. Natural herbal remedies as a means to maintain good health and cure certain diseases are valid. Nature’s drug store is making a comeback.

Apple cider vinegar is considered by many people to be one of the best natural health tonics available. It has so many health benefits it would be impossible to list them all! People use it to ward off cold and flu viruses, for weight loss, skin disorders, bacterial infections and much more.
When you buy, make sure you do get ‘apple cider’ vinegar, and not white or malt vinegar, as these are a totally different product. Also check that the apple cider vinegar you buy is unpasteurized. Pasteurization will render many of the active properties inert, which means you will not get the benefits you are wanting. Whether the product is pasteurized or not will be stated somewhere on the label. The unpasteurized product, which is the one you want, will very likely and preferably have some dark brown fiber-like webbing or ‘mother of vinegar’ suspended in it. While it may appear unsightly, it is very good to see and attests to the vinegar being unpasteurized and whole.
Apple cider vinegar is often used to soothe sore throats and coughs. If you begin to feel any throat irritation, you can drink or gargle some ACV. The apple cider vinegar helps to balance your pH levels and it helps to kill any bacteria in your throat. To make a gargle, mix ¼ cup of ACV to ¼ cup of warm water then gargle every hour. As ACV is a natural expectorant, instead of taking cough medicines you can take a natural health tonic such as ACV and help remove the phlegm by expectorating. You may like to add honey to your vinegar for a few other benefits too. As well as making the taste more pleasant honey is great for easing coughs, reducing infections and soothing sore throats.
Apple cider vinegar can prevent indigestion and relieve heartburn pain. To avoid indigestion, take 1 tablespoon of ACV with warm water 30 minutes before you eat and if you are already suffering with heartburn pain, take the same dose as needed. You may be asking the question, ‘How can apple cider vinegar relive heartburn when it is the acid in the stomach rising up into the esophagus that is causing the problem to begin with?’ The answer is that the ACV neutralizes the acid and makes the stomach content more alkaline as it balances out your pH levels. Try it next time you have heartburn and see how it works quickly and efficiently.
Stress, exercise and daily commitments can cause fatigue. This is due in part to the accumulation of lactic acid in the body and lactic acid causes fatigue. The amino acid present in apple cider vinegar can help you with improving your energy levels, so take a teaspoon of ACV when fatigue hits. The enzymes and the potassium also help to relieve fatigue at the end of a stressful day. There are many more health benefits of apple cider vinegar and there are books available listing the many hundreds of wonderful uses!
Here is a ebook that details all of the uses and benefits of apple cider vinegar. Plus, if you like recipes, the purchase of the book for $1 provides you with the opportunity to join a membership site featuring new recipes every month. Check it out!
