ACV Not Working Yet!

Posted by Dawn (Toronto, Ontario) on 11/28/2006

I am a little confused. I was told to take 1 tbsp of ACV (not in water or anything) before my night meal to cure high cholesterol and digestion problems. I have done this for a week and nothing. Reading this site I'm not sure if it should be 3 times a day or before or after meals. If you could please clear this up. Thanks.

Dear Dawn: Usually I would try two tablespoon of ACV plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda to 1/2 glass of water taken about 2 or 3 times a day on an empty stomach. This works the best. It takes about a month to notice.

Taking granulated lecithin one tablespoon with every meal allows the body to get rid of excess fats easier from the fat emulsifier but it takes a bout month to notice the difference. Last time someone gave me a feedback, they told me their cholesterol went down by half to normal levels just from taking granulated lecithin, soy protein and soy milk.

Again you can further lower the fat absorption by adding some pectin and psyllium husks to the food to slow down fat absorption and sugar absorption.

The best ways is to avoid acid forming foods which tends to cause constipation allowing fats to accumulate. As a result just simply avoid acid forming food, in particular, cola, coffee, bread, pastries sugar, table salt white flour and especially all fried foods. Sea salt is alkaline forming and can be substituted. Fresh fruits in general (except if it is too sweet) are alkaline forming, but not necessarily good on the sugar might be o.k., but green vegetables are often the best. If taken on a salad dressing, Italian dressing tends to be most alkaline forming food.
