VINEGAR helps acid stomach and more...
This was discovered just recently what helps acid stomach more than any
medication on the market. It's not good to have acid stomach for too
long; it will damage the esophagus after time and the lining of the
stomach. Tums, rolaids, etc. and all the new things for indigestion on
the market have bad chemicals in them; aspertame for one and other
dangerous ones that will only do damage to our health. Even the famous
Metamucil will even have adverse affects on the colon eventually.
There is something even much better that God has given us from apples
and that's BRAGGS apple cider vinegar. Just one teaspoon a day in an 8
oz. glass of pure water will make the stomach more alkaline the natural
way, and get rid of too much acid. Purchased my first bottle of Braggs
vinegar to try and it's wonderful. This is my first time using this
vinegar this way. It's delicious. I'll report back later.
This is some information about apple cider vinegar. This article is by someone else at this web site.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR AND pH BALANCE:
It's suggested that Apple Cider Vinegar has such curative abilities
because it causes one's pH levels to become more alkaline. If you are
going to try apple cider vinegar for allergies, or even to prevent
sickness, we suggest you do an investigation of your own by buying a pH
test kit at a local pharmacy, garden nursery, or even pool supply
store. You can use these kits or pH strips to test your urine to see if
you are more alkaline or acid during an allergy attack, virus or
bacterial infection. Once you ascertain your pH levels, you can adjust
adjust your dosage of Apple Cider Vinegar accordingly.
If you live in a highly polluted area like we do (Los Angeles) where
allergies and sinus infections are rampant, your system may better
balance itself with a small dose of apple cider vinegar each day.
Ultimately we suggest you experiment with a kit to find the pH balance
your body functions optimally at. Want to know more about pH?
Our Bangkok contributor Ted tells us, "Apple Cider Vinegar in itself is
alkaline because of its "ash" content, which means if the apple cider
vinegar was burned, what is left over becomes ash. When you check for
the pH of that ash and dissolve it with water, the content is alkaline.
Whenever our body digests anything, it undergoes oxidation, which is
similar to burning and the end result is that you can determine whether
the end product was alkaline or acid. Apple Cider Vinegar has
anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties, primarily
coming from the malic acid and acetic acid portion of the vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar acts as a buffer in the body because the acetic
acid reacts with base or acid compounds to form an acetate, therefore
rendering them chemically bioavailable for the body's utilization.
Additionally, Apple Cider Vinegar can reduce the toxicity of certain
compounds by converting the toxin into an acetate compound, which is
less toxic. This is why they are ideal for insect bites and certain
skin allergies. While Apple Cider vinegar in itself is considered
alkaline, a chemically pure vinegar (acetic acid) is neither acid nor
basic forming as it leaves no ash as the entire portion, when burned
evaporates completely. Ted"
Will have more information on this; because a lot of people have difficulty with acid reflux and acid stomach.
VITAMIN AND MINERAL CONTENT OF APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
Scientists have reportedly measured ninety different substances in
apple cider vinegar such as thirteen types of carbolic acids, four
aldehydes, twenty ketones, eighteen types of alcohols, eight ethyl
acetates etc. It also contains important minerals, trace elements and
vitamins as well acetic acid, propionic acid, lactic acid, enzymes,
amino acids as well as roughage in the form of potash and apple pectin.
Apple Cider Vinegar contains minerals and trace elements such as
potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, chlorine, sodium, sulfur,
copper, iron, silicon, fluorine. An alternative to drinking apple cider
vinegar may be to take potassium supplements, as potassium is known to
absorb excess fluids (ie, mucous) in the body. Drink lots of water if
you take potassium supplements so you don't get dehydrated! Potassium,
by the way, lowers high blood pressure.
Apple Cider Vinegar's vitamin content includes Vitamin C, Vitamin E,
Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B6, Provitamin
beta-carotene, Vitamin P (bioflavonoids).

COFFEE a sensitive subject
THE DANGERS OF COFFEE
Most people are aware of the ill affect of drinking coffee because it
contains caffeine. Actually, coffee is a narcotic beverage. The
caffeine in the coffee belongs to the same alkaloid group of chemicals
as morphine, cocaine and strychnine.
It is no surprise then why people have such a difficult time, at first,
letting go of coffee, and replacing it with healthier beverages.
Caffeine combines with the stomach's hydrochloric acid and forms a
potent toxin, caffeine hydrochloride. As this toxin is absorbed into
your portal circulation and hits your liver, bile is released in an
attempt to flush the toxin from your system. This accounts for the
increase in bowel "regularity" of which many coffee drinkers boast. If
you are one of these people, you might ask yourself, "Is such a
toxin-induced flush really very health promoting? Or Isn't there a
healthier way for me to be regular?" The answer, of course, is "No" to
the first, and "Yes" to the second question...
COFFEE CONTAINS HARMFUL CHEMICALS
Columbian coffee planters have regularly used deadly pesticides on
their plants for over 20 years. Some include Aldrin, Dieldrin,
Chlordane and Heptachlor. Some speculate that coffee beans are the most
significant source of these deadly toxins in U.S. diets.
The extreme temperatures in the roasting process of coffee beans
depletes the beans of its natural oils. Though it may enhance their
aroma, high heat actually causes the oils to become rancid.
The chlorogenic acid found in coffee has also been linked to toxic side effects.
COFFEE OVERWORKS THE ADRENALS AND SLOWS SPORTS PERFORMANCE
Coffee has an acid-based oil which is an irritant to gastric mucosa. It
simulates the secretion of gastric acidity and this results in
secretion of adrenalin. The secretion of adrenalin stimulates insulin
secretion with consequent secondary hypoglycaemia. The end results are
tension, mild rise in blood pressure, 2-3 hours later a craving for
sweets, low energy and mood levels, and over working of the adrenal
glands. All of which negatively affects health, exercise and sports
COFFEE COUNTERACTS MEDICATIONS FOR PAIN, OBESITY, HYPERTENSION AND DEPRESSION.
The secondary rise in plasma epinephrine due to the low blood sugar
will undo whatever good medications are doing to counteract the
hyperactive dopaminergic system in patients suffering from pain,
obesity, hypertension or depression. A few minutes after drinking
coffee, the stimulation of the dopaminergic system results in cold
extremities along with simultaneous rise in deep (visceral)
temperature. A patient with high fever is harmed by coffee, but helped
by tea and lemon juice. The decaffeinated coffee contains the same acid
oil, and thus is no better than regular coffee.
COFFEE CAUSES NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES
"Heavy coffee drinkers create Thiamine (B-1) insufficiency. Symptoms of
B-1 insufficiency range from fatigue, nervousness, general malaise,
general aches and pains to headaches.
Regular use of coffee prevents some of the nutrients in your food from
being absorbed effectively in your small intestines, which leads to
further vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
THE "BUZZ" FROM COFFEE
"The "buzz" or stimulation you get from coffee actually contributes to
re-bound fatigue when the stimulating effects wear off. Repeated
stimulation can contribute to the exhaustion of key organs like the
liver, pancreas and adrenal glands. If you still want that "buzz" you
get from coffee and strong teas, try Chinese Jasmine Green Tea,
instead. It has an effective stimulant without many of the negative
