I thought I had food poisoning yesterday morning from a brunch buffet the previous day. I was vomitting and had diarrhea. I really believed the ACV would work, after reading the testimonials. 3 times during the day I took 2 tablespoons of ACV. Each time, I held it down for about 10-20 minutes, then I vomitted. Everything I consumed that day, including pepto bismol, I vomitted after taking the ACV. I finally went to the doctor and was so dehydrated that they had to put me on IV to rehydrate before releasing me. Then they injected Zorphin (?), an anti-nausea medication, and had me sip pedialite every 20 minutes, and I felt much better. I was disappointed to learn ACV doesn't work for everyone. I appreciate the site, though.

I have been suffering from acute food poisoning for 4 hours now. Ironically, I contracted it eating a salad I made with nonorganic apple cider vinegar, approx, 3 tablespoons, for the dressing. So either I would be in the hospital now if I hadn't had the ACV, or this cure doesn't seem to help everyone.
