Most of us have read about the many health benefits of organic apple cider vinegar but how many of us actually add it to our daily diets? Sounds kind of gross, I know. But what if it were to change your life? As you will read further on in this post, organic apple cider vinegar has done just that for thousands of people.
In addition to curing allergies, sinus infections, high cholesterol, flu, chronic fatigue, candida, acid reflux, sore throats, arthritis, and gout, people are raving about the curing of chronic skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and even dermatitis.
Dr. D.C. Jarvis, MD who wrote “Folk Medicine, A Vermont Doctor’s Guide to Good Health” believes that apple cider vinegar could make any living thing healthier. He believes, Potassium, which is found in just the right amounts in natural apple cider vinegar “is so essential to the life of every living thing and that with out it there would be no life. Potassium’s main function is to promote cell, tissue and organism growth. It is necessary to replace dead cells and tissue. There is no better source of potassium than vinegar—particularly natural organic apple cider vinegar.”
I personally feel that the best way to take advantage of this miracle cure is to drink it with water every day. Keeping your body healthy from the inside is often enough to cure many skin ailments including acne. Some recommend sipping it all day however, it has been known to break down the tooth enamel over time. I have enough problems with my teeth, so drinking a couple teaspoons with 8 ounces of water in the morning and than brushing my teeth right after is good enough for me. For skin disorders, many dilute it with water and apply it directly to the skin.
There are many, many testimonials about how organic apple cider vinegar finally helped people cure skin problems from paleness to acne and rosacea. Email responses from the Earth Clinic website only prove how life changing this can be for some:
Nan from Atlanta, GA writes: “ACV cured my dermatitis and is also healing my rosacea!
I’m amazed at how amazing this $6 bottle of organic acv is. I would have never believed it if I hadn’t experienced it for myself. I’ve had rosacea now since May which was a result of a major stress factor in my life. I’ve been to the dermatologist and have spent over a hundred dollars in topical creams and pills that just did not work. I then learned that the creams I was given for the rosacea was causing dermatitis so I was again given another cream to try and combat the dermatitis to no avail.
When the dermatologist failed to help me, I went to an esthetician. She put me on supplements stating that it was more likely an internal digestive problem. This actually made it worse. Whereas before the supplements I had the rosacea & dermatitis only on my cheeks, after taking the supplements it immediately spread to my whole face which freaked me out.
I then did a google and somehow found the Earth Clinic website with remedies and saw a few testimonials concerning dermatitis. I thought to myself, I’m desperate and what harm can it do in trying (as I’ve done about everything else short of doing laser treatments)to try and take care of this. I was even going out without makeup as the dermatitis caused my make up to look cakey and blotchy. On my way home from work on October 17th I stopped at a nutrition store and bought my $6 bottle of ACV. I washed my face and applied the ACV directly to my face with a cotton ball. Saturday it started looking better. I’ve applied it in the morning and at night after washing my face and follow with my moisturizer and a week later the dermatitis is completely gone and so is most of the rosacea. I also put 2 TBS in a 16 oz bottle of water each day.
I am now a firm believer in ACV!!”
Elizabeth from Nashville, TN writes: “I have had the red and blotchy skin associated with rosacea for the past 10 years ( I am 29 now)….I’ve tried all the creams and lotions you can buy but they either A) Just mask the problem or B) Not very effective. So I decided to replace my expensive dermabrasion crystals with just plain ol’ baking soda (it does have a similar consistency). It left my skin uber smooth…but still red and blotchy. So I pulled out the organic ACV and filled the cap 50/50 with water and ACV. I then get a Q-tip and smooth the ACV mixture over my face (concentrating on the blemishes). I let it sit for a couple of minutes and rinse off. In just a week my skin has improved about 70% (a lot less red and the blemishes disappear quicker). My skin feels GREAT… Thanks earthclinic for having such an open-minded site!!!!”
Sandra D from Greenwood, IN writes: “I am a 43 yr old woman. About ten years ago I started suffering from terrible cystic acne. I am taking testosterone blocker and minocycline. Nothing worked. I also use Duac gel which is an antibiotic and peroxide. Still nothing worked. Tried thousands of combinations of medications and home remedies. Yesterday I read this blog on apple cider vinegar….thought what the heck. I will try it. I took 2 tablespoons in a glass of water and dabbed some on the existing cysts. Then that evening did the same thing only using the cider as a toner.
Today my acne is almost completely clear. Why, I do not know. But be assurred this is no joke. My dermatologist is going to freak out. I am very active in the gym etc. Now I can go in and strut my stuff with confidence.
With so many positive testimonials for organic apple cider vinegar, how can you afford not to try it?
