How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar Internally to Relieve Inflammation

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :

You likely already stock this magical, natural ingredient in your home, but if not, you’ll want to soon. Apple cider vinegar, also known as ACV, is one of the most popular, natural remedies relied on today that has been used for decades to provide healing to all parts of the body. It’s also a fantastic non-toxic cleaning agent to keep around the house, and it even makes an effective— and highly affordable—natural facial toner to relieve acne.

But ACV is most powerful in its abilities to provide healing to the body on a cellular level in a very short amount of time, sometimes minutes depending on the ailment at hand. Apple cider vinegar is made by fermenting apples, which develops healthy organisms known as prebiotics. These organisms are what feed good bacteria in the body known as probiotics that are housed within our digestive systems and contribute to our overall well-being. Keeping a healthy eco-system with natural foods nourishes not just the digestive system where probiotics provide a large part of their healing and regulating effects, but also helps  maintain a healthy microbiome. This can help reduce inflammation in the digestive system, joints, and even other areas of the body such as the heart, blood, and more.

Treating Inflammation NaturallyACV-1200x797 (1)

Inflammation starts in our guts and in our cells. It festers quickly and is caused by high amounts of stress, lack of sleep, a diet high in refined sugar and refined grains, unhealthy and manmade fats, excessive animal protein, excessive caffeine and alcohol, drugs, and a diet high in processed foods. Symptoms include digestive problems, joint point, headaches, fatigue, a high susceptibility to sickness, acne, and more harsher forms of disease if chronic inflammation occurs, such as heart disease and diabetes. Many people turn to over the counter options to heal these ailments, but they only contribute to inflammation further because they’re filled with synthetic, chemical-based ingredients our bodies don’t recognize. While one food can not heal the body from inflammation, many foods are extremely potent in their abilities to bring relief, cleansing of the cells, and are much better options than over the counter drugs. One of these, as you might guess, is ACV.

The Simple Nutritional Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegaracv-1200x675

Apple cider vinegar contains a variety of nutrients that help in its ability to do many things in the body that reduce inflammation fairly quickly. It has an alkaline pH, so it keeps our blood from becoming too acidic, which is what ultimately makes us feel so poorly. ACV can also reduce insulin in the body to balance blood sugar levels, it helps the body produce enough hydrochloric acid (HCL) needed for optimal digestion and assimilation of nutrients, it contains a large amount of potassium which reduces pain, it assists with natural cleansing and elimination, can relieve a minor headache and joint pain, flushes the cells of wastes, and promotes a healthy heart and blood pressure levels. Finally, it contains vitamin C that reduces inflammation, stress, and contributes to a healthy immune system to keep the body strong.

Here are 5 Simple Options to use ACV as a Natural Remedy: ACV1-1200x750 (1)

1. ACV Morning Iced Tonic – 

Combine 1-2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in 1 cup of water. Add ice for a chilled option (particularly refreshing right after you workout or wake up in the morning), or drink at room temperature.

2. Natural ACV Tea-

Add 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to warm water and lemon to drink as a natural tea. Add a green tea bag for even more healing effects.

3. ACV Spiked Smoothie or Simple Salad Dressing-

Add apple cider vinegar to a fruit-based smoothie to add a tangy, zesty twist or use apple cider vinegar as a natural salad dressing.

4. ACV Simple Shot-

Take it plain in the morning as a shot!

5. ACV Healthy, Cleansing Super Shot-

Make a cleansing shot with water, the juice from one lemon, cayenne pepper, and a touch of stevia to add sweetness. (Cayenne and lemon are both naturally anti-inflammatory and cleansing too.)

How Much to Use?

You can use a few of these options per day, just be mindful that you shouldn’t overdo it to make up for a poor diet. Implement 1-3 of these options above each day in conjunction with a healthy diet. ACV is also acidic by nature, even though it alkalizes the body once it reacts with our blood, though too much may lead to some discomfort because it’s so powerful. So, like most natural remedies, a little will go a long way.

But … be Sure You Use the Best Kind …acv-1200x797 (2)

When you buy apple cider vinegar and are looking to benefit from it the most, go for unpasteurized, raw and organic apple cider vinegar with “the mother.” This is the healthy organism that develops during fermentation and provides the medicinal benefits.

Or … if you’re particularly savvy and enjoy home projects, make your own apple cider vinegar—it’s easier than you think!

In mid-2012 I became quite ill. I developed persistent flu-like symptoms, headaches, a nagging cough and sores that wouldn’t heal. My skin felt as if it was crawling, my legs ached, I felt nauseous and lost weight. Then exhaustion hit. It was an indescribable tiredness and no matter how much I slept I never felt rested.

I was infected with Genital Herpes Virus six months ago, ever since then i have been searching for cure everywhere because i was feeling so uncomfortable with it. I have been dating for almost 5 years until i contracted Genital Herpes from my ex-boyfriend. since then I became very sad about the whole situation, always going online checking if i could get a cure to Genital Herpes, then i came across so many testimonies. Due to my seriousness and eagerness to be completely cured, i became a victim of fraud after contacting several so-called herbal doctors i was referred to. I lost a lot of money but i didn\'t stop searching for a cure. Then one faithful day, i came across a testimony of a lady saying that she got her Genital herpes cured by a Great Herbal Doctor she called Dr lucky by contacting him through his email address. And she advised anyone with Genital Herpes or Simplex Herpes to contact the herbal doctor for Herbal Cure. I contemplated for about 4 hours whether or not to contact him. then something inside of me told me \'Nothing good comes easy\'. I then contacted him through his email and told him my problem. He told me all the things I needed to do and also gave me instructions to follow, which i did properly. Just within weeks of drinking and applying the herbal medication he sent to me through dhl delivery service, i started seeing changes, i went to my medical doctor for check-up, i was so happy when the doctor told me i was no more having Genital Herpes Virus, it was all tears of Joy from that moment, People think herpes is really a minor skin irritation herpes has a long term effects on health and if i could ever meet a Genuinely Great Herbal Doctor. I\'m so grateful to him. i am completely free from Genital Herpes Virus, i introduced a family friend who have Simplex Herpes virus to him, He called me and told me he was also cure completely. I promised to share my own testimony like that of the lady on the internet. Friends, If you are also struggling with Herpes disease you can as well Contact him via Email: [email protected]
