I have suffered greatly for 14 years with severe chronic pain, obesity, insomnia... You get the picture. I had been on a 'cocktail' of oxycodone (6 per day), MORPHINE (2x/day), 4 different muscle relaxers... and on top of that I would take 4 ibuprofen AND 4 naproxen sodium- all just for the pain. Then add in the sleep medication, valium, clonazepam- and still up almost all night with pain.
I was beginning to see the negative effects of all of this, and with no relief in sight except for when I took the narcotics, I decided to search and found this page about ACV.
After reading all the posts about ACV, I decided to try it right away. I knew I would have to cut it with something more palatable, so I followed the juice recipe.
I woke up the next morning with so little pain, I could actually get on the stationary bike and did 15 min in the morning and another in the pm. I also did my daily walk with the dog. She is a mastiff-size dog and at 11 mos. Is almost 90 lbs and she pulls on the leash, adding to my pain. Not that day- we got home without the usual added pain and I didn't have to rest for hours after.
I have kept a journal since the first day about my experience with ACV. Today will be my 7th day. Yesterday, my husband and I took the dog to the beach (her first time). I woke up with no pain at all that day and went to bed the same, even after running errands as well.
I am sleeping a bit better, have already stopped taking the oxycodone, morphone, all muscle relaxers, sleep meds, and valium.
My husband is in the Army and is really working hard on his physical training but he also deals with pain intermittantly. He has been doing this with me and feels no pain at all now.
We both have reflux issues andI take an Rx for it. The ACV will aggrevvate it for us both if not cut with juice and an equal amount of water (& ice). Then the taste is actually pretty good- like lemonade or something, and we just sip it all day, getting our 3 doses in.
Nature cured what 11 (yes, eleven) specialists could not. We will always use this from now on!
I have been using ACV in a tonic called Jogging in a Jug and literally within 24 hrs my knee, hip and shoulder pain have completely disappeared! I have been struggling with my shoulder pain for 12 yrs due to a car accident and my knee and hip pain for the last 2 yrs. What a miracle. I have told everyone I know about this tonic and they are all giving it a try!
Here is the recipe:
1 c organic ACV
1 c organic white grape juice
2 c organic apple juice
Mix all together. Take 1-2 oz daily before a meal. Keep refrigerated.
I didn't care for the tast at first, but now I love it. I had to plug my nose for the few days but now I can drink it just fine. My energy levels are back and I am sleeping more soundly at night. I love this stuff!!
