Prepare Recipe in Advance?

Posted by N (San Jose, California) on 11/28/2007

Hi Ted, I'm very excited to find Earth Clinic and have the privelege of knowing you. You seem to be a very knowledgeable person when it comes to ACV. I read all of the website and immediately ran to a health food store to buy all the ingredients - ACV, honey and baking soda, after being impressed by testimonies of a lot of people. By the way, I was in pain for arthrities in the shoulder. From my reading the website again, I found out that honey is optional. I can remove it because of my diabetes, am I right? 1) Can I prepare a large quantity of the mix, like a gallon but using your proportion so that I can have a ready drink everyday. Of course, I will refrigerate the gallon of mix. 2) I have medications for high blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes. Do you think it is OK to drink the ACV? This is very important for me to know. Please reply immediately. Thanks and take care. N___ from San Jose, California

I can remove it because of my diabetes, am I right?

Yes, honey can be removed.

1) Can I prepare a large quantity of the mix, like a gallon but using your proportion so that I can have a ready drink everyday. Of course, I will refrigerate the gallon of mix.

Make it enough just for ONE DAY, and store in refrigerator in tightly closed container. Do not use it the next day as it may spoil. A gallon mix may be way too large. One liter would be enough for a day to day mix.

2) I have medications for high blood pressure, cholesterol, and diabetes. Do you think it is OK to drink the ACV? This is very important for me to know.

Most important is that the ACV is NEUTRALIZE with baking soda until the pH is between 7 to 7.5. The mix is usually 2 tablespoon plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda.

In case of high cholesterol I have found it most important to NOT USE any vegetable oils during cooking EXCEPT coconut oil. Coconut oil will reduce absorption of free radical vegetable oils and reduce the bad LDL choleterol. One tablespoon a day of granulated lecithin would also normalize some level of diabetes problem too. Vitamin B complex is also helpful, using B50 taken once a week.

'If high blood pressure is a problem I prefer a 2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar plus 1/2 teaspoon of bakng soda plus 1/8 teaspoon of potassium citrate (or potassium bicarbonate) in 1/2 glass of water (at least).
