Apple Cider Vinegar Recipe

For Aches, Painful Joints, and Arthritis

To be taken on an empty stomach twice a day: best first thing in the morning and at night before bedtime. Do not eat afterwards for 20 minutes.

Mix the following:

1. 1-2 tablespoons Raw unfiltered apple cider. Shake bottle before pouring. Available in health food stores like Trader Joe's or Wild Oats. Braggs is the brand I use.

2. 2-6 ounces bottled or filtered water.

3. 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon either honey or unsulfured molasses for sweetness, whichever you prefer. I don't sweeten it anymore myself.

4. Optional: 1-2 shakes of tumeric powder. This is a flavorless Indian spice that has a natural anti-inflammatory component called curcumin. In small quantities, it has no taste.

5. Optional: 1-2 shakes of cayenne pepper. The capsaicin component is beneficial for circulation, the heart, and lowering cholesterol.
