Vinegar is a Game-Changer
A couple years ago, I started drinking raw apple cider vinegar (with “the mother”) on a whim. It was the middle of winter, and I had become increasingly irritated by my immune system’s inability to stay healthy. My tiny kids were bringing home new colds every month, and I was getting sick. So I decided to try an experiment to see if raw ACV was really as beneficial as people proclaimed. I began drinking a tablespoon of Bragg ACV with 8 ounces of water (or apple juice) every morning and every evening. After a few months of consistently drinking the potion, I noticed subtle changes throughout my body. I felt better. I felt healthier. I got sick less. My body has increasingly become more efficient all-around. I’ve become leaner.
You see, raw apple cider vinegar (with “the mother”) actually balances your body’s pH. By balancing your internal pH, things that aren’t supposed to live inside of you, don’t. They physically can’t. A balanced pH will make all components of the system work exactly as they are supposed to, and make it impossible for outside invaders (bacteria, viruses, parasites) to establish or gain the upper hand in the system. Now, don’t get me wrong–I still get sick. Getting sick is the result of stress taking hold in the body: stress from lack of sleep, negative energy, or fear. But I’ve noticed that when I do get sick, my symptoms are lessened and I recover quickly.
I’ve also noticed that adding raw apple cider vinegar to my animals’ diets increases the function of their own bodies. My chickens and pigs consume less feed, as a result of fermenting their feed in water and ACV. Animals consume less feed (and humans consume less food) simply because their bodies are working more efficiently. The ACV contains digestive enzymes, which are needed by the body to properly digest food. The ACV is basically taking the matter that is ingested and breaking it down into parts that are used throughout the body. There’s less waste.
In addition to feed efficiency, I don’t have to deal with an imbalance of parasites. ACV, used routinely, will prevent nature’s parasites (tapeworms, roundworms, coccidia, etc) from establishing and wreaking havoc inside the body. When the immune system is enhanced (by ACV), it doesn’t allow invaders to take hold. This is why I don’t use pharmaceuticals to treat and control parasites–because I simply don’t have to. Natural controls work perfectly.
