Raw Apple Cider Vinegar, Natures Wonder Food!!

Natures Wonder Food

The old saying ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away” has some truth to it. Apples have powerful health promoting properties that are supercharged when the apples are turned into apple cider vinegar.

Raw apple cider vinegar (ACV) is one of the oldest foods used for its medicinal properties. Most ACV you by in your grocery story is going to be pasteurized. The pasteurization process destroys many of the beneficial health properties of raw ACV. Raw ACV is cloudy and at the bottom you can still see the mother which is the dark, cloudy gelatinous substance formed from naturally occurring pectin and apple residues. The mother is the most nutritious part so shake the ACV well before pouring.

ACV not only adds flavor to dishes but also offers a multitude of health benefits.  Apple cider vinegar has many vital minerals and trace elements such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, chlorine, sodium, sulfur, copper, iron, silicon and fluorine that are vital for a healthy body.

Raw ACV is made by fermenting apples into cider and them fermenting the cider into vinegar.  I love adding ACV to my smoothies and to my greens. It adds just enough tart with a little sweet to put a little zing in the taste!

Are all ACV’s the same? NO!!!

The best apple cider vinegar is made from cold-pressed, organically grown whole apples which has the “mother of vinegar,” and is not pasteurized. I recommend Bragg’s Raw Apple Cider Vinegar available at any health food store or in the health food section of your everyday grocery store.

What are the health benefits? ACV may;

  • Reduce sinus infections and sore throats
  • Alkaline the body
  • Improve stomach acid levels providing more complete digestion and absorption of nutrients
  • Destroy bad fungi and bacteria in our digestive system due to its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties
  • Blunt the rise of blood sugar if taken with the meal
  • Balance high cholesterol
  • Improve skin conditions such as acne
  • Protect against food poisoning
  • Fight allergies in both humans and animals
  • Prevent muscle fatigue after exercise
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Increase stamina
  • Increase metabolism which promotes weight loss
  • Improve digestion and cure constipation
  • Alleviate symptoms of arthritis
  • Prevents bladder stones and urinary tract infections
  • Reduces the pain from gall stones
  • Dissolve uric acid formation around joints improving gout symptoms

Other Benefits

When used as part of a hot vinegar pack, apple cider vinegar has tremendous pain-relieving qualities. Hot vinegar packs ease the pain of gall stone attacks, kidney stones, intestinal cramping and colic, menstrual cramps and pelvic pain. It involves applying a heated mixture of apple cider vinegar and water to the area of pain, typically the pelvis or abdomen. Talk to your health professional about how to do this and when it is indicated.
Apple cider vinegar can be added to soaked grains and legumes  to reduce phytic acid. Phytic acid is found in grains and legumes and inhibits the absorption of essential nutrients, such as magnesium, iron, and calcium. So the next time you make rice or bulgar wheat, consider soaking it overnight with  water and apple cider vinegar to maximize your nutrient intake!

I drink raw ACV everyday in a mixture of pure raw honey, organic aloe vera juice and pure organic cranberry juice. I also add it my smoothies and love that tart taste it provides.

If you want to maximize your health potential make raw apple cider vinegar a part of your daily diet.

You can follow my blogs here.

I was once a morbidly obese person. Thank you God, the bonds of my obesity were literally eaten and walked off.  If you are obese or overweight, I am urging you to take a step today to change your life.  If you don’t, I can promise you that it will shorten your life by years.  Sure 15 or 20 extra pounds  isn’t going to impact your health as much as 100 pounds of extra fat will. However, that extra 20 pounds will, if you are consuming a nutrient poor diet and not getting enough exercise.

Wally After Losing Over 200 lbs. With His Size 64 Overalls

This week, I watched Losing it with Jillian Michaels. I try to watch it every week as well as the biggest loser when it is on. I am cheering hard for their success.  Jillian’s show gets down to the dynamics of family life and the effect obesity has on everyone; spouses, children, aunts and uncles, even neighbors and friends.  I will tell you, playing with my grand children is the greatest reward I could receive.  Before the weight loss I could only sit and watch them play.  People that know me will tell you I am not the type of person to sit and watch. My weight loss has given me my life back.  Obesity is a type of imprisonment within your own body.  I f you are overweight or obese, I want to empower you with the knowledge to lose all the weight you want to lose and be healthy!

Do you know what the number one killer in America is? How about lifestyle choices which include diet and activity . This includes heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes and high blood pressure.

If you are overweight I want you to know that you can lose that weight and keep it off. I know you are shaking your head saying I have tried and tried and tried again and I lose some weight and then life bucks me off the diet and I gain it back. I went though those thoughts too and tried a lot of diets. I literally dieted my way to almost 450 pounds. I have walked in your shoes and I have succeeded at losing over 200 pounds and kept it off.  I must tell you, I enjoy eating today more that ever.

Please listen to me, believe me,  you can lose the extra weight you are carrying. A lot of my clients use the same excuses I did.  I blamed my genes, my ex-wife,  my schedule, stress from work even bad luck.  Genetics only go so far. Science has shown repeatedly  that our lifestyle choices can trump genetics a majority of the time.  We all have people, schedules and jobs that stress us. There are no acceptable excuses to neglect our health.

There is no shortcut or pill for weight loss.  If there was, I would have found it.  Surgery should always be the last option. You will have to make huge sacrifices once you have your stomach stabled or banded. The answer is to discovery why you have gained the weight and then to correct it.  You must learn how to eat and live a healthy lifestyle.

How to get started, read this document and understand that just reading a manual or word document isn’t the answer.

It requires a warriors attitude! You must declare war on your fat! You must make slow gradual changes and understand it takes time. We want you to lose no more than 2 pounds per week.

If you want my help just ask .
