About 2 weeks ago, I awoke one morning with a throbbing headache and a knot the size of a golf ball on my forehead. The pain was unbelievable. My husband inspected it but could not find any bite marks (we thought maybe something had bitten me in my sleep). I don't easily go to the doctor so I decided to wait it out. It only got bigger and more painful. No redness, no warmth, just swelling and pain. I tried warm compresses, tea tree ointment, ice packs and even a heating pad. I was miserable. I had read in a farm mag not too long ago about using apple cider vinegar for various ailments. I was to the point of going to the ER, which would have been only my 2nd ER visit in my entire 47 years of life. The swelling had gotten so bad it was putting pressure on my temple and making me nauseated. I decided to give one more home remedy a try and yesterday during my shower I pour a cup of the vinegar on my hair. By noon I could tell a considerable amount of the swelling was gone. Last night I put some of the vinegar on a gauze and placed it over the knot. Morning came and the knot was almost gone and no pain. This morning I rinsed my hair with it again. The knot and pain are now completely gone. The only bad part about the whole process is I've been asked at least 50 times if I had been eating pickles.

Begin each morning with a song in your heart.

Victoria- if you rinse a bit longer, the vinegar smell should fade more- or if you do another shampoo after the vinegar. So glad it cured your knot. I wonder what it was!!

My husbands Aunt Patsy said if you have heartburn to take a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar, but it has to have the mother in it.

Glad you are okay Victoria. By the way where in Tx are you?

If you take just 1 TBLSP of Apple Cider Vinegar a day (or a pill they sell) you will notice much shorter nad lighter periods!

Apple cider vinegar is wonderful if you want to shed a few pounds. Put a teaspoon in a teaglass of water, add a little honey, and your appetite will drop. I used it to keep down water weight when Aunt Flo visited, and it always worked!

An eighth of a cup in warm bathwater helps to stop itching and makes your skin softer.

My mother in law loves apple cider vinegar. She uses it to soak her feet where she has swelling and arthritis, it works great.

I'm a huge fan of ACV too! I drink it twice a day in an ice cold class of water. It has helped me with so many things, that I have made it part of my daily routine these past few years. According to studies it helps many different things, kidney, liver,arthritis, and more! I have experimented with quitting for a few weeks and was amazed how fast my aches and pains came back. It works great for me!

This is the brand you want to look for: http://bragg.com/products/acv.html

It's Bragg ACV with the mother. You can find it in most health food stores and probably in the natural food aisle of larger supermarkets.

I have to tell you I'm a believer in it too. My husband was having terrible leg spasms in the middle of the night after working outside all day and I read on the internet that acv will stop the cramps and it really did. He took a couple of tablespoons before bed and never had cramps. The nights he missed taking it the cramps came back. Just wanted Hi neighbor to eastTXFarmgirl! You probably don't live all that far from me.

There was a book many years ago called Vermont
Folklore medicine. The entire book was based on Apple Cider Vinegar and honey. Just remember never feed honey to a baby under the age of two.

You should read the book about ACV by Patricia Bragg. It's a very interesting book and gives lots of home remedies involving raw apple cider vinegar.

You need to find out what it was. So glad it is gone, but what caused this?

I know that you can get acv with the mother in it at Whole Foods if you have one close by . . .

My husbands Aunt and he have just started using the raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar for heartburn. They both have had miracle results! Its amazing!!! Hubby had trouble every day and was tired of taking pills that didnt seem to always work but the cider vinegar really works.

I just got a bottle of the braggs acv at my local grocery store. I thought of all I had heard here on the farm about it when I saw it so I bought it. :) Not to sound ignorant here but what is the mother in the vinegar that you spoke of?

I had bronchitis a couple of weeks ago & had to take anti-biotics. As always, the anti-biotics caused a candida issue. Sorry if too personal but it really worked & I have to share this! I started drinking some mixed with water 2x a day and would also 'wash' with it. I kid you not, it went away in 2-3 days without any returning symptoms. I get the Bragg's raw organic ACV. I think this might be the only brand that's raw with the mother in it? I am a huge believer. Recently, I've started using it as a face toner. Again, mixed it with water & put a few drops of tea tree oil. My face is looking nice with fewer break-outs. I also agree with the lighter, less bloated t.o.m. I thought something was wrong with me until I read this post tonight. It makes sense now.
Denise, the mother is the culture that turns the apple juice into vinegar. Kind of like a culture that turns milk in to yogurt. Like yogurt, it's loaded with good probiotics & other good stuff that I can't remember what it is. I bought & downloaded the e-book from Bragg's website & read it when I have a question about ACV. The e-book explains what's in the ACV that makes it so good for you. Think it was only $5.

I love acv too, but remember if you drink it daily it can wear away at the enamel in your teeth. I know someone that happened to, she switched to the pills. It is great in pet water to help discourage fleas.

Hi Victoria, Glad the acv worked for the knot on your head. I want to thank all the farmgirl sisters for all of their post about the benefits of acv. I learned a lot from your posts.
Sharlet.......like your husband I too suffer from leg cramps at night and since I have a bottle of Braggs acv in my pantry I'm going to start taking it every night before bed. Hope it works as well for me as it does your hubby.

Sarah, thanks for that tip. I never would have thought about the acid wearing down the enamel on my teeth. I do have veggie caps and a syringe. I can always make my own pills & take it like that. I'd just drink lots of h2o with 'em.
