Dosages

Hello Ted, Thank you so much for your reply....! I like reading your expertise!! I was a little worried by reading your comment "They recommended two teaspoon of pure apple cider vinegar diluted 8 oz of water because that's the maximum tolerable dose without having a major side effects from the acidity of the apple cider vinegar", because, in earthclinic.com's recommended dosage says "The traditional way: 2 TBLS of ACV in 8 oz of water 3x a day. Add honey to taste"; It does not mention about baking soda I think that many many earthclinc.com readers, including myself, are taking 2TBLS of ACV without adding baking sode to neutralize the solution. Isn't it bad for our health? Maybe earthclinic.com should start recommending 2 TSP of ACV without adding baking soda and 2 TBLS of ACV with baking soda added? I don't want people to get side effects by taking too much ACV without adding baking soda..... Thank you,

Dear Mie: I wouldn't even consider adding honey, except for kids who are stubborn if it doesn't taste good or certain people who really can't stand ACV tastes or smell.

I guess there's a great divide, between Ted's remedy and the other people's remedy posted on earthclinic!

I rarely complaints on the baking soda added but I do get a more complaints than I can handle from using ACV alone.
