As a holistic physician of 32 years I've investigated many naturally remedies as means to improve overall health. Organic apple cider vinegar has always been on the top of my list for natural home remedies.
I am NOT making any health or medical claims, only clinical observations.
I have had nurses seek my help who could no longer take anti-biotics. They were diagnosed with a throat infection confirmed by testing at the hospital were they worked. I had them gargle with apple cider vinegar 3-4 times per day, after 2 days they would repeat the test and test negative for the infection. Is this an isolated case, maybe but this advice has worked for most.
I am for seeking medical care or treatment, but I also suggest adding complementary medicine to their healthcare treatment plan. In most cases, we have seen improved outcomes regardless of the health condition.
Bacteria, and viruses love to harbor and replicate in the throat and mouth. My advice will always be seek medical care for a proper diagnosis and treatment, then add complementary therapies. If you have the start of a sore throat or start of any cold symptoms, immediately start gargling with organic apple cider vinegar 3-4 times per day until your symptoms are resolved. Make sure you spit it out, do not swallow. Once the symptoms are completely resolved I recommend gargling 1 - 2 times per day for the next 3-4 day as a precaution.
Are there other ways to utilize apple cider vinegar? Yes, but that's another topic which I will address at another time.
As always continue to follow up with your healthcare professional. If have any other questions please feel free to contact me.
