Warning About Proper Dosage

Posted by Valerie on 06/23/2007

I took a very small dose of the 2tbs. ACV and about 1/8 tsp. of baking soda. I mixed this with a glass of water, drank about ½ cup of it and dumped the rest out. Today I have small sores under my tongue. Will these go away on their own or do I need to see a doctor, help!!!!

Valerie: The dose is 2 tablespoon ACV and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. What you are taking is too acid. If the body is already too acid, baking soda alone would resolve the problem or using baking soda as a mouthwash. The small sores are an ulcer, usually from eating oily foods and too much acid forming foods.
