So it is day three. I must say I’m amazed. This morning hubby checked my legs and my edema was completely and totally gone. So in a little over 48 hours the Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) did what I used to be on Lasix for. Taking “water pills” strip your body of nutrients and has a huge number of side effects.
If someone had told me that I could just add 2 tablespoons of ACV to my diet twice a day and I wouldn't have the painful swelling from water retention I would have never believed it.
Even though my swelling is gone I plan to continue the ACV. I really think the benefits outweigh the short time term bad taste. One thing I want to point out though is that I’m using Bragg’s ACV. It’s completely organic and unfiltered/unpasteurized. It has what is called the “mother” in it. The Mother is the best part of the vinegar which is killed during pasteurization. The health benefits are amazing.
I thought that I would be really missing my coffee. However I’m really not missing it at all. I remember waking up Thursday morning and dragging myself to the coffee pot and being groggy and annoyed. This morning just 3 mornings later I bounced out of bed and was alert and ready to go. Is it possible that we've been tricked into thinking we “need” coffee to get us going?? Not sure. I do know this. I’m already feeling a LOT better. I can’t wait to see how this goes. Perhaps I should change the title from “Detox” to “My life”
Namaste & Blessed Be
