Differences Between Vinegars!

Let’s talk about Vinegar!
I’ve spoken before about how Vinegar can be “unhealthy”, but my reference being towards “white distilled” and to wine vinegars, in which the destructive nature comes from ACETIC ACID, which both distilled and wine vinegars have.

PURE ACV (apple cider vinegar), on the other hand, made from whole apples and NOT diluted, contains the constructive MALIC ACID, which benefits the digestive system, and can be constructive in softening kidney/gall stones.

White Distilled Vinegar rapidly destroys red blood corpuscles which contributes to anemia. It also interferes with the digestive processes.red corpuscles Healthy Red Corpuscles vs. damaged!

 

Distilled Vinegar is the product of fermentation by acidity of alcoholic fluids like fermented wine and malt liquors; these are known as wine vinegars and malt vinegars. The white distilled which carries a high acetic acid content is used a lot in our Country. The only thing I find it good for is using as a cleaning agent for the home.

But vinegar made from apples (ACV) contains MALIC ACID which is a natural element involved in the digestive process.

Vinegars made by fermentation of wine contains an average of from 3% to 9% Acetic Acid, and usually some Tartaric Acid too. Acetic acid has been connected to contribute in hardening of the liver (cirrhosis) and duodenal and intestinal ulcers.

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, on the other hand, contains Malic Acid, which is a constructive acid that combines with alkaline elements and minerals in the body to produce energy or to be stored in the system as glycogen for future use.

It helps in the coagulation of blood in establishing a normal menstrual flow, and contributes to  healthy blood vessels, veins and arteries, and the building of red blood.

MINERAL BALANCE

One of the great virtues of ACV is its extraordinary potassium content, a must have for building and storing body reserves which contributes toward achieving harmony and calm. This potassium readily associates with some of the most important elements in the body, like calcium, sodium, iron, magnesium, chlorine, and silicon.

FILTERED ACV

Its important, when choosing ACV, to consider the source, making sure its made from whole apples and not the cheap stuff made just from apple cores and peelings. Whole Raw apple cider vinegar with the “mother” which should look cloudy in appearance and a nice dark amber color. Will also have sediment and stuff floating in the bottom of the bottle! Also, never buy it in plastic containers, always choose one that is in a glass container.

Everyone should have a bottle of this stuff at home, its indispensable. It carries antiseptic qualities, works great as a skin toner, diluted with water and applied with a cotton ball directly to the skin.

VARICOSE VEINS

Years ago in Scotland it was used and maybe it still is common practice to shrink varicose and “bulging” veins by the application of ACV on the skin to the whole length of the veins, morning and night, for a month or so, and at the same time drinking daily; two or three glasses of water with 2 teaspoons of ACV in each glass. And it worked!

CLEAN BLOOD

Your LIFE is manifested in the condition of your blood which is generated in the marrow of your bones, activated through your spleen and circulated through your blood vessels.  It is a natural, systematic process that causes the blood stream to be completely recreated every period of 28 days, and unless the balance is maintained between the creation of new blood cells while the old blood cells complete their cycle, health cant be maintained.

_____________________________________________________________________________________

EXCESSIVE BLEEDING

Excessive bleeding with menstrual cycles, bleeding hemorrhoids, nose bleeds, cuts, etc., can also show signs of improvement by drinking 2 teaspoons of ACV in a glass of water daily and two or three times a day if necessary!

When our digestive system fails to digest proteins, it is a result of being deficient in hydrochloric acid.  This can, as a result, give rise to high blood pressure.  So consequentially one to three teaspoons of ACV in a glass of water, taken in the middle of the meal can  improve protein digestion and assist in balancing blood pressure.

SIGNS OF POTASSIUM DEFICIENCY

SIGNS OF POTASSIUM DEFICIENCY

potassium-rich-foods

More people are deficient in key minerals than they realize, and there are symptoms that are often overlooked.  Below are some symptoms that one may experience if they are in fact deficient in potassium.

Don’t just look for these symptoms in yourself, but a large majority that I am now seeing are in Children!

SYMPTOMS:

Fears, easily startled by noises.

Mood swings.

  • Skin can feel like its crawling from underneath.
  • Brain functions poorly during the day & better at night.
  • Sleep is troubled and restless, dreams feel vivid; habits alternate.
  • The body is tender to touch. ( FIBROYMALGIA folks fall in this category too)
    Ambition and drive feel absent.
  • Noise interferes with speech and thought processes.

Sensitive to weather changes.
Prone to depression.

The body chemistry is adversely affected by mental imbalances, increasing acid formation and taste for destructive habits especially pertaining to foods.
Because potassium is vital for attracting oxygen to the tissues, lack of it reduces lax muscles and can weaken heart. Digestion and assimilation of albumin, fibrin, gelatinous foods and sugars are impaired.

  • Headaches
  • sweating
  • dry skin
  • numbness with tingling neuritis
  • muscular atrophy
  • nerve sensitivity
  • tenderness and weakness in tendons and muscles
  • pain in lower back of head (can bring on a powerful headache)
  • poor bowel activity
  • crawling sensation in feet beneath skin or at roots of teeth
  • skin itches,
  • rosy patches on skin
  • itching around former injuries and scars
  • Tossing and turning at night
  • Dizziness
  • bottoms of feet are often red, burning tender or swollen
  • Feet seem weak and unable to provide good support
  • Walking causes weakness
  • Nose and throat suffer, may feel like food sticks in the throat
  • Pains and aches in the stomach
  • The bladder burns and aches
  • Ticklish in the nose, and shooting pains in the jaw
  • Parotids (salivary glands) are swollen and arteries are weak

DIABETICS NEED HIGH POTASSIUM DIET:
Diabetes, which involves reduced tolerance to sugar, indicates a lack of potassium. Tissue waste products, tissue water, acid and glucose stress the kidneys. In time, the sugar that is refused by the body passes thru the kidneys and is often diagnosed as kidney diseases when potassium hunger is the actual cause.
Potassium and iron is needed for energy, if the body has lost the power to utilize potassium the oxygen supply is also diminished.

Massage, osteopathy, chiropractic and electrical treatments homoepathic remedies, allopathic drugs alone are not sufficient methods; proper diet MUST be followed too.
