Apple Cider Vinegar Keeps the Doctor Away...

Do you ever wonder where mamas got medicines for sick babies before Walgreens and CVS stores existed?

Home remedies helped cure the achiest of pains...

One tried and true home remedy for numerous issues is apple cider vinegar & honey.

I was at the farmer's market the other day, and noticed a sign above the local honey that read, "1 tablespoon honey, 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar, and eight ounces of water a day", then, it went on to list an array of benefits...

Y'all!  I have been mixing an apple cider & honey drink (at least one) every day for the past two weeks. 

-I have been sleeping better.
-I have had more energy.
-My aches and pains (chronic back pain) is gone.
-My skin is clearer.
-My teeth are whiter (woohoo for cheap teeth whitening)
-I have lost weight

I've also researched, and found that there are several long term benefits (some proven, and some not) to using the vinegar & honey, such as:

-Healthier lymphatic system (cleans infection from body)
-Cancer cell reduction
-Flu/Cold remedy
-Fibromyalgia relief
-Sooths tummy aches
-Calms nerves
-Treats acid reflux
-Helps Heartburn
-Lowers Cholesterol & High Blood Sugar

-&&many, many more.

So!  Try some apple cider vinegar & honey today... I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, and that you reap many benefits from drinking it!

((PS - note that you need to by raw, organic apple cider vinegar.  It ensures all of the healthy nutrients are still intact.))



  1. My hubby was on an apple cider vinegar kick for a while, but I just can't stomach the taste. Maybe if I could put it in something, but with just a bit of honey it wasn't enough for me. But I do agree with all the benefits!

    1. Lol! My husband is the same way... he's having trouble getting over the "vinegar" flavor... I've seen several recipes online where it's served hot, like an apple cider... maybe that would help?

  2. If your are struggling with the taste Manuka honey is great to add to the drink and it has its own powerful antibacterial properties.

    1. Neat! I'm going to have to find some, just to try! I love trying new things, especially when they are so good for you! Thanks for the tip!
