Hi Ted Hope you are doing well. I came upon the Apple Cider Vinegar website by chance. I was searching for natural cures to various ailments. My mother (who is in her 70s) is taking over 6 tabs daily for high blood pressure, cholesterol, sugar, arthritis, osteroprosis etc. I am getting concerned about their side effects. I want her to start taking some ACV instead and do away with the prescription pills. However I also read that ACV undiluted can acid tongue. Given that she cannot have baking soda due to her high blood pressure. Would drinking a diluted solution of only 2 tablespoons of ACV in a cup of water or juice, 3 times a day (without the baking soda) be Ok. Regarding myself I had a bit of eczema on my face so I have been presently applying ACV undiluted twice a day. Is this too strong or should it be diluted. Also, thankfully, I do not suffer from any serious ailments, but have been taking 2 table spoons of ACV and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda twice a day. Is this dosage too strong for just a health supplement. Should I take just l tablespoon of ACV instead and for how long. Please reply soon. Thanks also for all your great work.
