Apple Cider Vinegar: The Flu

apple-vineFor many people, winter signifies a number of negative aspects, colder weather, shorter days, and perhaps worst of all, the start of cold and flu season. The flu especially can be extremely dangerous, particularly to elderly people, and it must be treated quickly and effectively. There are different ways to treat colds and flu’s, many of which are actually derived from natural ingredients. Without question, one of, if not the most effective method of treating the flu, is by using good old fashioned natural apple cider vinegar. The great thing about using apple cider vinegar is that it helps the body to effectively fight the flu virus, whilst preventing any further side effects from occurring. Other flu remedies often cause many other side effects, some of which are even worse than the actual flu itself. There are currently over 200 different strains of flu virus, many of which are constantly evolving and changing. Because of this, it is especially difficult for scientists and medical experts to develop medicines to kill of the virus for good. As they are constantly evolving and changing, many strains are now building up natural immunities to medicines and vaccines. Guess what? Apple cider vinegar is still as effective now, as it was centuries ago, and it is proven to be extremely effective when fighting off cold and flu viruses.

If you find yourself suffering from the flu this winter, the following three examples are great ways of curing yourself with minimal effort:

Drink it first thing in a morning – As with most apple cider vinegar solutions, to take the vinegar, it is not difficult to get the solution into your system, and it takes literally a few seconds. Simply mix two tablespoons full of the vinegar, with a glass of water, and perhaps a little honey to sweeten the taste and to help soothe a sore throat.

Drink it with meals as well as an empty stomach – The solution can be taken both with meals, and on an empty stomach. The vinegar will make conditions inside your body much more alkaline, making it a lot more difficult for the flu virus to reproduce and regenerate. On top of that, it will also significantly lower and slow down the production of mucus, due to its high potassium content.

Give yourself a really high dosage of vitamin C – For a really rich vitamin C hit, try mixing the vinegar with a glass of fresh apple juice. Consuming the vinegar on a daily basis will help to keep your PH levels under control, and will prevent the flu virus from reappearing at a later stage.
