Thread Name: Info on Cider Vinegar please.
Subject: RE: Info on Cider Vinegar please.
I did read a book years ago which claimed that Cider vinegar and honey would cure just about anything.

As Jeri says, It sounds like snake oil.

BUT, small amounts of any kind of vinegar can help digestion and so improve absorption of nutrients from your food.

Honey contains an antibiotic which stops it fermenting, but would probably not be too good for a diabetic.

Lou tried green lipped mussel pills for her arthritis but they didn't help. They smelled good though and I threatened to steal them to use in gumbo.

Two other folk remedies that you might try are laughter and stress relief. One study 'found' that putting a pillow in a corner and kicking the shit out of it, helped relieve arthritis pain.

I was singing my usual silly songs at The Doylestown Arts Festival one year and a woman came up to me after and told me that her arthritis had been hurting that morning, but she laughed so much that the pain had all gone away.
