Does anyone out there limit their intake of raw apple cider vinegar? I've just started using this on my salads. And oh my gosh!!!!!!!! It's so good. It's raw. So that makes it ok--right???

The only folks I know who intentionally limit their intake of raw, unfiltered, with -the -mother- in -it, apple cider vinegar are those who are healing from "something" wrong in their digestive tract... and those who believe that vinegars, even raw, are too much of a counter-balance to an alkaline body ph.
Otherwise, there are many who drink it straight from the bottle much like a tonic, they wash their faces with it, they wash their hair with it, the use it on cuts, they put it in their foods, and they use it for feminine hygeine uses.

Katrina, I don't know you and I'm not attempting to make any kind of "diagnosis," just sharing my personal experience. It is often thought that we are are drawn to what we need. As my tastebuds have changed over a dozen times since becoming raw I sincerely believe this of myself. Sometimes only in hindsight do I notice symptoms or problems that have disappeared, and as they do my cravings also change.
The folowing site shares info about Apple Cider Vinegar. The link isn't kinky, by the way, ;) , perhaps I've got a dirty mind because that's what I thought when I first saw "lace to leather." Ha! As I believe the information is from the Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar book, it is raw friendly.

Thank you all so much for the responses. I think my body is craving raw cider vinegar. And it may well be the potassium. I've burnt myself out on bananas this summer but not replaced the potassium source with anything else. This makes sense. Thanks!

I love to add apple cider vinegar to my salads. Most times I have less digestion problems when I add it. I don't think my tummy makes enough acid for digestion. It tastes especially yummy with a little raw honey and a little bit of extra virgin olive oil with italian spices. Yum!
i deffinitly go in phases with it... right now i'm not too interested... if i were more diligently pursuing a 'mycotoxin' free diet i'd ban it altogether for a period (3 months, or more) ...but right now it just doesn't appeal to me...
i might actually start taking it to coincide with some liver flushes i'm doing... the malic acid from the apples helps to soften the gall stones

I have apple cider vinegar in the cabinet, but I'm guessing that it has to SAY RAW, to BE RAW? Let me know....

A great book for everything you wanted to know about Apple Cider Vinegar is Bragg's book titled "Apple Cider Vinegar." The stuff is amazing...I use it on my skin, drink it mixed with water/honey, put it on food, etc.... The book is available at www.bragg.com

Hi, I am just starting 100% raw -- have been 80% raw for a while. I suffer from candida. Will it be okay to use the raw apple vinegar since it has the enzymes in it? Thanks -- I got Alissa's book and DVD the other day and have been fascinated with all of it.

Regarding Raw Apple Cider Vingegars..
Does anyone know of any readily-available brands besides Bragg's?

In the candidas diet books they say that apple cider vinegar is ok. It balances out the ph of the body.

Renee, if none is available where you live you can make your own. Is fresh apple cider available? If not you could go whole hog and juice fresh apples. Here are a few links to consider:

Cool!, Thanks Pixie!
I've had someone ask me recently. I couldn't think of any I knew of.

Thanks so much, solarliving. Being able to use the apple cider vinegar will make life a lot easier. I am stuffed right now and don't know if I will even want anything for dinner.

There are several I know, all are raw: There is Eden brand; Spectrum brand; Hain brand; and Solana Gold brand, "Virtues of Vinegar"; Jarrow brand, "Omega Nutrition" -- all these are organic.
There is another one I've seen online but not in stores by Dynamic Health Laboratories; organic, I think.

I have personally never been told that one should limit thier intake of ACV, so this is an interesting question to me. I often will drink a "tonic" of sorts that consists of acv, honey/agave, cayenne and warm water. This often helps with any "belly problems" I have and also has relieved headaches for me! I also notice that if I eat an oily salad dressing or use an exceptional amount of oil during the day and drink this in the evening there is an evident expulsion of oil the next day (sorry to be too graphic).
There is a book out there by Mr. Bragg that tells of the benefits of acv that might interest you!
