What's old is new again. Just like fashion, many aspects of life seems to "have their day" only to recede into background and then once again come back into the light. Along with the back to natural trend that is happening in many areas of people's lives, I have also been reunited with a small book I ordered from the Farmers' Almanac called "Apple Cider Vinegar." It turns out that having some of three items pictured below will help out a lot. And it tastes like a Granny Smith Apple drink to me. I toast, "To my health," and drink it down. Here is a list of the benefits:
- Every day: I use - 1 T honey (an antioxidant), 3 tsp. ACV, and 1 c. water I do this twice a day (see #14); book recipe 2 T honey, 2 tsp ACV, glass of water (I use less honey because honey has so many charbohydrates and I prefer tart to sweet)
- Restore energy and combat fatigue and insomnia - 1 c. honey, mix in 2 T of apple cider vinegar. Store in a wide mouthed jar. Take a couple of teaspoons before going to bed. If needed take 1 more tsp a half hour later.
- Research by D.C. Jarvis, M.D. "Folk Medicine: A Vermont Doctor's Guide to Good Health" states that its high potassium content promotes cell, tissue and organism growth. It is also high in other minerals associated with good health - phosphorus, chlorine, sodium, magnesium, calcium, sulfur, iron, fluorine, and silicon and trace minerals. The healing power is activated by the apple cider vinegar.

Dr. Jarvis recognizes three type of sickness - those caused by bacteria, those by parasite and the "energy diseases". The energy diseases are caused when the body doesn't know how to shut down. The diseases caused include high blood pressure, heart disease, ulcers, allergies, asthma, migraine headaches, diabetes, arthritis, and cancer. Drinking the apple cider vinegar (ACV) mixture helps the body shift its chemistry from preparing for constant battle, to allowing the body get to the business of building and storing the reserves it may need one day in the future.
Disclaimer, you are an adult and in making any decisions on your own behalf, you are responsible for your choices. The information above has helped me and is the only reason I share it here. To bring down my triglycerides I added some oil of garlic to the ACV mixture. I also included milk thistle and CoQ10 with my daily supplement intake - my numbers came down from 299 to 64 in two months. So that has me excited and I'll be toasting to my health with ACV from now on!
