Side Effects

Hi Ted, I have a quick question for you. I'm a nutritional therapist and I recently put a client on apple cider vinegar.She was suffering from sugar addiction and wanted to lose weight. I took her off sugar but did not put her on the full anticandida diet. A week later she called to say that she was suffering from headaches, insomnia, and poor mood. I assumed she was detoxing and then remembered that she has a yeast intolerance. Is it possible that she is having a reaction to the apple cider vinegar? Is this product counter indicated for clients with yeast intolerance? I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. Any help you could give would be appreciated. Regards

It is a common reaction from acidosis from taking only apple cider vinegar. Add enough baking soda to neutralize the acidity and no negative reaction would be experience. The minimum dose is 2 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar plus 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken two times, but preferably three times a day on an empty stomach.

The big problems are the white bread, steaks, oils, vegetable oils, fried foods, cheese are the other things that should be avoided and not just the sugar whenever candida sets they tend to fluorish in an acid forming food. Chickens, fishes, and vegetable, provided they are not contaminated are o.k.
