Serious Relief From Apple Cider Vinegar
0

8 posts in this topic

A few months ago, I had a bad gallbladder attack after being glutened. In agony, I remembered that ACV could help tummy troubles. So sick I couldn't think, I poured a glug or two in water and chugged it. The relief was almost instant, and I had been throwing up and sufferring for over an hour.

Last week, my 13 yo got glutened and was SO sick. Usually she is in pain for hours before she staRts puking, and then throws up for hours. Decided to try the ACV. It made her puke within a minute or two. She felt better for a bit, then got sick again. A second dose stopped the pain and nausea right away and she was able to sleep.

For those looking for some pain relief with a glutening, give it a try! Be sure to get the organic ACV with the "mother" (that's the gross scummy stuff floating in it.) I will always keep a bottle in the medicine cabinet from now on!

My body's response to gluten is like your daughter's. I have some ACV (Bragg's, I believe). I will definitely try it next time. Of course I am working hard to not have a "next time!!!"

I don't know why, but apple cider vinegar fixes everything! I always use it when I have a cold or stomach problems.

Maybe the acid helps digest the food? Curious isn't it?

I have the Bragg's brand here (with the mother). I'll have to remember to use it more often when I have a bit of trouble digesting.

I hope I never have to find out if it works for a glutening! :lol:

I swear by ACV. I drink a little every morning before I have breakfast. I don't dilute it in water anymore, I put a little bit in a glass and take it like a shot, lol. Then I brush my teeth. Remember to do that after you drink it, because it can cause tooth problems if you don't brush right away.

Leslie - I've read that you absolutely should NOT brush your teeth immediately after drinking ACV because the acid makes your enamel soft - brushing immediately afterwards will harm your enamel. Better idea is to either use a straw to drink it, or wait at least an hour after drinking it to brush your teeth. Swish with some water afterwards too. I drink ACV all the time because I have low stomach acid and it helps SO much - but gotta protect those teeth!

I keep ACV for everything from a tooth ache, to dandruff!! This stuff is amazing. I make kale with sliced apple and ACV to help my healing process. I've heard that you cans add a cup to bath water to cure yeast infections. I use diluted ACV on a swab to clean my face and it keeps my completion clear and tone.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
