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'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 readers, including myself, are taking 2TBLS of ACV without adding baking sode to neutralize the solution. Isn't it bad for our health? Maybe 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.
