ACV and Beer
I just started trying the ACV (4 days). I have noticed that my left toe swelling is lowering and my ankle feels looser and kind of relieved, so to speak. I have a couple some questions I’d like to post here. A little history about me though… I drink quite a bit of beer. I can’t help it as it’s my favorite past time for past time’s sake. I am a connoisseur of beer. To stop drinking it is unfathomable. I have a few bad gout attacks a year and many lesser attacks and twinges periodically. An NSAID works in half a day when I get real pain though. My Questions:
First, I could hardly stand the taste of ACV but I put it down anyway for a two days. Then I had the idea of a 4oz glass with two tablespoons of ACV and light beer. Drinkable, not good, but actually drinkable. This must sound stupid and/or crazy to any respectable gout sufferer, but I’m doing it anyway. So, does the alcohol or any other ingredient in the beer degrade the ACV potency or effectiveness?
Second, I am getting the impression in reading the post’s here that the ACV may be harmful to you. I see that the author has said in the beginning that he was taking it twice daily “for rest of life”, and a few years later only 2-4 times a month. Is this because the ACV can be harmful to your teeth and organs? I am specifically trying this remedy or “cure” due to my apprehension on taking synthetic prescriptions my doctor will prescribe. All pharma products produce another disease is my theory. I don’t want ACV to cause some other bodily failure.
Thirdly, and last for now, why do you recommend “distilled water”, or in another post “filtered water” in the recipe? Does tap or bottled water degrade the potency or effectiveness?
Thanks for the help.
