Why My Bad Reaction?

Posted by Veronica (Coal Valley, IL) on 03/31/2007

Oh my goodness!! I tried the ACV remedy for sinusitis/allergies. I took one tablespoon with 8 oz water on Sunday afternoon and the same dosage again on Monday morning. I felt fine all morning on Monday, but about an hour after I ate lunch I started feeling very nauseated. I kept gagging and got the cold sweats. My tongue and teeth had this terrible feeling - like the acidic feeling after you vomit. This lasted the rest of the day and all night. All of this from one tablespoon of ACV! It is over 24 hours since my last dose and I still have a queezy stomach! The inside of my cheeks, my lips and my tongue feel raw and I have a very metallic taste in my mouth. Why did this happen? I was so looking forward to some releif from sinus pain and pressure, and all I got was more grief!!

Whenever the body has insufficient bicarbonates, some can have a reaction. Therefore just take 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water first, taken on an empty stomach twice a day for at least two weeks. On the second week, it is likely to be 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda with 2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. If you are wary of apple cider vinegar than you can use the lemon or lime formula instead:

8 teaspoon of lime plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken 2 times a day on an empty stomach.

Or if you have some loyalty to apple cider vinegar, then,

1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar plus 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken 2 times a day on an empty stomach.
