John received a report on the MRI on his gallbladder. Although it is full of stones, surgery isn’t warranted. I asked her if he continues to take 2 Tblsp. Apple cider vinegar (she interrupted me, “Oh, that would be excellent!”) and a Tblsp. of Lemon juice in 8 oz. water, would it perhaps help dissolve the stones? (She seemed delighted, “Combining lemon with the vinegar would be even better!” The she effused to John, “You are lucky man, to have such a great supporter!!)
I obtained the proportions for the drink John & I chug each morning, from Sarah King, a Parkinson’s PT… and her link on gut health. I say chug, because I have discovered, no taste, until air hits your food, so I bottoms up my glass and swallow (from 8 to 11 swallows, depending on the day) and then gulp and breath after the glass is empty.
I attribute our freedom from capturing any colds or sore throats to our daily morning glass…
I went to a website offering 25 ways for Apple cider vinegar to change your life.
I have cut and copied a few of them here… The first definitely seems valuable, since weed killer has long been suspect for being a trigger linked to PwP
“Weed Killer – A friendly neighbor turned me on to vinegar as weed killing alternative years ago and it’s even more effective than dangerous glyphosate. Just mix 1/2 gallon apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup salt, and 1/2 teaspoon dish soap. It will effectively kill any plant you spray it on, so make sure you avoid the flowers and other plants you want to keep.”
“Be sure to always choose organic apple cider vinegar, to make sure it’s truly toxin free, as apples are a very contaminated fruit.”
“Shiny, Flake Free Hair – Apple cider vinegar is an excellent weekly hair rinse. It leaves hair looking shiny and soft. The acid in ACV helps to remove product build up. It also helps to balance your scalp’s pH level. Mix 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar into 4 cups water and rinse the hair after shampooing, then rinse with cold water. If you are having issues with dandruff, twice a week try spraying your scalp with equal parts apple cider vinegar and water. Place a towel around your head and leave wrapped for up to an hour. Wash your hair as you usually would.”
“As for sunburned skin, soak in a bath with 1 cup of apple cider vinegar to help ease the pain.”
“Non-Toxic Cleaner – It’s no secret that vinegar is an excellent household cleaner. What some people don’t know is that raw, unfiltered vinegar contains all the bacteria fighting benefits that some commercial vinegars lack. To make your own cleaning solution, simply mix equal parts water and apple cider vinegar, plus a little elbow grease, to get your home free of dirt, bacteria, and toxic cleaners. Don’t worry, the vinegar smell goes away as it dries.”
