Mother Nature’s All-In-One, All-Natural, Cure-All,
and Multi-Purpose Life Elixir: Apple Cider Vinegar!

Backed by Research and Natural Health Enthusiasts since Hippocrates…

How would you like to walk into your local grocery store and buy ONE thing off the shelves that could replace:

  • Just about every over-the-counter (and probably some your doctor’s prescribed) cream, ointment or tonic in your medicine cabinet!
  • Your expensive beautifying skin cleansers and age-spot treatments! The dozen or so chemical-ridden kitchen and bathroom cleaners stashed under your sink!
  • The pet products you’re going broke using to keep your pets healthy and pest-free!
  • The pricey personal care products your family goes through like water!
  • And much, much more!

So much more in fact that you could fill a book with all the incredible uses of this ONE all-purpose solution that can take care of everything from a mosquito bite to…

  • Keeping fleas off your dog…
  • Fueling your work-out endurance…
  • Providing key nutrients that protect against heart disease…
  • To even making it harder for cancer to grow in your body!


What am I talking about? Only THE most talked-about “natural remedy” in Folk medicine ever—Apple Cider Vinegar!

The healing power of Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV for short) has been known for millennia—dating back to ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece. The Roman Army—once the most powerful and formidable conquerors of the known world—used an ACV tonic to stay strong and healthy…

And Hippocrates, the father of medicine, used this amazing elixir as a natural antibiotic and antiseptic to heal patients in 400 B.C.!

And there was nothing “magic” about it—just good common sense, concentrated nutrients and one extraordinary ingredient found only in ACV…

But folk remedies carried down though hundreds—even thousands—of years are not the only proof that ACV is the real deal. Research is starting to validate mounds of anecdotal evidence that ACV is not only useful—it’s effective!

Just look at the science…

  • Weight Loss! In a Japanese study participants who drank more ACV than their counterparts during a 12 week period had lower BMI, waist circumference and visceral fat than the control group who drank none!
  • According to one study, consuming ACV decreased the risk of esophageal cancer!
  • In clinical trials, ACV was shown to slow the growth of cancerous cells within the prostate!
  • And the Gerson Institute—a leader in cancer research and treatment—fights cancer with a therapy that alkalizes the body to inhibit the growth of cancer because cancer can’t survive in an alkaline environment. ACV naturally alkalizes your body!

I could go on and on and detail 81 ways that ACV can CHANGE, SAVE, IMPROVE and SIMPLIFY your life!

That’s no exaggeration! After months and months of research into what is no doubt the most beneficial natural health tonic ever known to man, I’ve uncovered…

  • 58 ways ACV can improve your health—ranging from minor to life-saving…
  • 15 household uses—including cleaning and gardening solutions that are all earth and animal-friendly…
  • Five ways to pamper and care for your skin—on the cheap…
  • And three personal care uses that will not only save you tons of money—but are toxin free, unlike what you’re probably using now!

In fact, I’m going to tell you about so many incredible uses for ACV that you’ll want to run to your nearest grocer and get your own bottle right away! And I hope you do!

But first, let’s talk about why ACV is so amazing and how to make sure you get the right kind of ACV to start rejuvenating, healing, burning fat, preventing chronic illness and feeling better!

The Apple Cider Vinegar Miracle

Raw organic apple cider vinegar truly is nature’s perfect miracle food—and should never be confused with regular clear vinegar. Clear vinegar has none of the health properties of ACV and can actually be harmful.

Traditional uses of ACV are almost limitless! To name just a few… ACV has been used to ease digestion, aid in flu prevention, reduce inflammation, regulate pH balance, ease nausea and heartburn, as a staple in detox regimens, and for a number of skin conditions—including reducing acne and smoothing wrinkles!

But why exactly does ACV contain so many healing properties?

The secret may lie in its alkalizing effect!

Even though ACV is acidic (like a lemon or lime), it creates a perfect alkaline environment in your body that is the exact opposite of what most diseases require to thrive.

And then there’s the incredible concentration of naturally occurring vital nutrients…

Raw, organic ACV is made from organic apples and undergoes a double fermentation process, which produces enzymes and preserves its health-promoting characteristics. Some of the most beneficial nutrients in raw, organic ACV include:

  • Potassium: essential for normal heart, kidney and other organ and cellular function
  • Iron: important for blood health
  • Magnesium: vital to heart health
  • Enzymes: boost chemical reactions in the body
  • Malic acid: protects vinegar from viruses, bacteria and fungus
  • Acetic acid: slows the digestion of starch and inhibits bacterial growth
  • Calcium: builds strong bones and teeth
  • Pectin: helps regulate blood pressure and cholesterol
  • Ash: maintains a healthy alkaline state in the body

Plus, ACV provides a veritable smorgasbord of vitamins and powerful antioxidants including vitamin A, B6, C, E, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, beta-carotene and lycopene!

But there is ONE extra-special ingredient that puts ACV over-the-top in health-promoting potential—and that’s “Mother.”

Also known as Mycoderma aceti, Mother of vinegar is created when acetic acid bacteria and a type of cellulose develop during the fermentation process.

Mother of vinegar is harmless—and the phenomenal health-promoting characteristics it possesses are out of this world! Such as living nutrients and friendly bacteria—the kinds you hear about that are so important for “balanced” health…

A body that’s not properly pH balanced is wide open for disease and sickness because:

#1 Acidity robs minerals from bones, cells, organs and tissue!

#2 Without minerals—vitamin absorption is compromised!

#3 Toxins and pathogens easily build up and the immune system is suppressed!

This is why Hippocrates made ACV his go to treatment of choice to fight infections—and why more and more people are realizing…

Natural REALLY IS better!

This wonderful clump of soil we call home is truly a miracle! Everything—I mean everything—we need to thrive and survive is here on God’s green earth… but we haven’t been the best stewards.

In an effort to make more and better food and feed billions of people, something has gone awry. The food we eat is processed or genetically modified—or pumped so full of antibiotics and pesticides—you have to wonder… are we trying to poison ourselves?

There’s something wrong with our way of thinking when something as pure and natural as ACV is considered an “out of the box” remedy—when in fact it’s just a good old simple common-sense way to promote overall health and well-being!

So why do some people find it hard to believe that one simple food can do so much good? Partly because we’re conditioned to believe that natural cures don’t work, and that we have to put our faith in dangerous pharmaceuticals to find relief.

Now if that’s not “out of the box,” I don’t know what is! How often has the next big drug been fast-tracked through the FDA and fed to millions of trusting people expecting to be cured…

Only to discover that the medicine they were taking was making them sicker—even killing them?

But as soon as you understand the “business of medicine” it all becomes crystal clear: Conventional medicine is about treating your symptoms—not preventing illness.

Mother Nature, on the other hand, is all about handing you just what you need to enjoy…

Pure and Simple Health
with Apple Cider Vinegar

Using ACV to promote your well-being, stop hair loss, treat a bladder infection, alleviate allergies, reduce varicose veins, lower your blood pressure or soothe a sore throat is so simple—you only have ONE rule to follow…

Dilute, dilute and dilute. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

ACV is highly acidic—so it’s always best to mix it with water. If a particular remedy calls for two teaspoons of ACV to be ingested—stir it into a glass of water—because drinking ACV straight may damage tooth enamel. Or burn going down the hatch.

Drinking diluted ACV tastes just a little sour, but I’ll tell you… it’s much easier to drink to your health than deal with the long list of downright scary side effects you’ll hear on the TV drug commercials—the ones that make you wonder if it’s safer just to stay sick!

But drinking ACV isn’t the only way for you to reap its healing benefits—sometimes just a little dab will do ya…

First Aid with ACV

I wasn’t exaggerating when I said I could name 58 health purposes for ACV.

I’ve already mentioned a few—including how ACV has been shown in studies to impact the fight against cancer, support heart health, and prevent many common illnesses.

And there are plenty more ways it can safeguard you against other life-threatening illnesses!

But let’s start here with some simple, basic, every day health issues that I bet you, a family member, a friend or neighbor could definitely put to use today starting with…

ACV First Aid: External Itching

There are numerous causes of external itching—dry skin, allergic reaction, an imbalance in the body—you name it! And lotions or creams don’t always soothe. In fact, if you’ve scratched till your skin is raw, lotion can further irritate.

But I can almost guarantee that no matter the cause—a little ACV can tame an itch in no time.


  • 1/4 cup ACV
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 clean cotton ball

Mix ACV with water
Dab the affected area a couple of times a day
Stop when the itching subsides

No more running to the drugstore to take care of:

  • Painful boils!
  • Athlete’s foot!
  • Jock itch!
  • Fungal ear infections!
  • Corns, calluses or warts!
  • Even swollen, unsightly varicose veins!

Only vary the ratio of ACV to water (you’ll discover how easy it is to do) and you’ll be able to home treat just about any annoying skin condition without costly ointments or prescriptions!

Considering you’d pay about $12-$15 for the leading over-the-counter anti-itch or anti-fungal cream—and only about $6 for a 32 ounce jar of raw, unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar that you can use again and again and again…

I’d say that’s not only effective medicine but smart economics!

ACV First Aid: Sore Throat

Most of the time a sore throat is nothing serious—and if caught early enough a common sense remedy like ACV can save you hours of time wasted at the doctor’s office—and a hefty co-pay IF you have insurance!

In cases of viral infection, antibiotics don’t help—but that doesn’t keep doctors from over-prescribing unnecessary medication that could make matters worse.


  • 1/4 cup ACV
    • 1/4 cup filtered water

At first sign of sore throat
Mix ACV with water
Gargle with this solution for at least 30 seconds
Rinse with Water
Repeat several times

You can save yourself time and MONEY by using ACV the next time:

  • Your allergies flare up!
  • Someone in the family experiences minor constipation!
  • You have trouble sleeping!
  • A painful canker sore won’t go away!
  • Bad breath becomes an embarrassing problem!

The everyday health uses for ACV are limitless—and I’ll tell you how to discover even more—but first, I want to show you how to make the switch to safer…

Personal Care, Skincare,
and Beauty Tonics with ACV

If you haven’t started using organic personal care products you really should consider it. Your health depends on it!

The toxic load found in shampoos, deodorants, lotions—just about every personal care product you have in your shower or vanity right now—is posing a very real threat to you, your family and the earth!

The Extension Toxicology Network (EXTOXNET) states that “chemicals can be absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream, causing toxic effects.”

That’s why it’s imperative to only put ON your skin that which you would be willing to take into your body!

ACV is not only a safe and effective personal care alternative, but it offers a multitude of age defying, toxin-free benefits to keep your entire body clean, bacteria-free and healthy, starting with…

ACV Personal Care: pH Skin Balancer

ACV contains antibacterial and antifungal properties that balance the skin’s pH—making it a great natural choice to keep your skin looking and feeling its best!

In addition, ACV naturally contains alpha hydroxy acids—the key ingredient in most high-priced skin creams—which help to remove dead skin cells.

Why pay upwards of $35 or more when you can choose your own bottle of ACV for about $6? Again, it’s just good common sense!

Plus, people who commonly suffer from acne, dry or oily skin will find that their skin is much more balanced when using ACV, with fewer breakouts.

To treat your whole body to an invigorating, age-defying ACV spa-style wash, try this:


  1. Fill a small wash basin with warm water and ½ cup of ACV. Standing in the shower or tub, dip your hands in the mixture and massage all over your body until thoroughly wet.
  2. Massage the balancer into your skin until it is dry; do not wash off.
  3. As an alternative, pour the mixture into a spray bottle and spray yourself after your shower or bath for an invigorating pH balancer.

ACV also makes an excellent cleanser and can be mixed with a few other natural ingredients for an excellent beautifying mask!

ACV Personal Care: Hair Rinse

Your grandmother can probably attest to this old-time favorite beauty use for ACV…

If you wash your hair with conventional shampoo, a residue builds up over time. This can cause your hair to become dull and lifeless.

To remove the residue and restore shine and bounce, do this:


  1. Mix 1/2 teaspoon of ACV with 1 cup of water
  2. Pour onto your hair
  3. Rinse with water

The shine that ACV leaves behind is absolutely gorgeous! And think about how little it will cost you compared to the expensive “clarifiers” found at the salon. And this DIY treatment can be done on your time in your own home!

In addition to naturally luxurious hair care—ACV can be used as:

  • An effective deodorant for both men and women!
  • A soothing aftershave!
  • A tonic to rejuvenate tired eyes!
  • An effective treatment for nail fungus!

  1. I learned about ACV while working with a functional medicine Dr. Used to heal stomach, lose weight, etc. I’ve had GREAT results. But since using, I’ve learned many other uses, the most recent, using to heal “fungal type rash” while caring for my bed fast mom. Diluting 1 oz to a small basin of warm water and making “packs”. After only a few minutes the redness went away and after a week, so did the rash. The most amazing thing about this though was, mom had some “SEBORRHEIC KERATOSIS” that I noticed were drying up. Eventually they “died” and just sloughed off!! Today I was washing her and they were 90% gone…just dried up! Next I’m going to try as a hair rinse. Love love the products!

  4. I wanted to do a gall bladder flush and it called for Apple juice. Will ACV soften the gall stones like the juice?
