Dear Rebecca: I would like to know if this acv is suppose to help with excessive mucus running down the back of the throat? Yes, but not ACV alone. The newer remedy for reducing such runny mucus constantly or to modify the remedy as an antihistamine, you need to use this formula instead: 2 Tablespoon of ACV 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda 1/2 glass of water or a stronger version: 2 Tablespoon of ACV 1 tablespoon of baking soda 1/2 glass of water The ones I used today is: Ascorbic acid 1 teaspoon malic acid 1/2 teaspoon potassium citrate 1/2 teaspoon 1 tablespoon baking soda All formula work well regardless of formulation. The critical formulations is the amount of baking soda added to the malic, or ascorbic, or acv, or lemon. The ones I used, at least also reduces fever too. Within minutes of taking it. So the amount of baking soda you use depends on the seriousness of the runny nose! This solution needs much more baking soda so that it will have an anti-histamine effect. Just only today I had a runny nose, and I used a different formula, but adding the baking soda of about 1 tablespoon did the trick. Within, minutes my runny nose just disappeared. It is best taken only on an empty stomach.
