Vinegar…your natural health insurance

Apple Cider Vinegar has long been known for its multiple uses and benefits. But can apple cider vinegar be your natural health insurance?
Read on for one man’s journey to discover a natural method to save his kidneys. Especially to avoid kidney dialysis – which doctors claimed was unavoidable.
William was at the top of his game before the stroke. An ordinary person, living life as best he could. Does it sound like anyone you know? If he’d had more facts about one common household food, though, maybe things wouldn’t have gone sideways.
A dedicated actor-musician, William’s work was his raison d’etre. Days filled with auditions, which always caused a fair share of pressure.
But he sang to manage it. The added stress his body endured seemed usual. It was anything but.
That night…his music stopped. The light that illuminated his path dimmed. When an artery bursts in your brain things are never quite the same again.
After the stroke came the uphill climb to recovery. And now another blow. His doctor found, after the stroke, he had Stage Four Kidney Disease. They fully expected his kidney to continue declining to Stage Five, at which time he would need dialysis.
“How do you know?” William asked Dr. Bell.
This meant that the stroke recovery his train wreck of a body had to endure was only the beginning.
He also had to radically change his diet…eat strictly for his kidneys. Every day he was haunted by the looming threat of dialysis.
“Statistics. Only rare cases don’t progress,” Dr. Bell stated. “You’ll need a fiscula in your arm to connect you to the dialysis machine”.
William didn’t do “status quo” well. He needed to be that “rare case”. Soon he got the fiscula in his arm – then trolled online for alternative treatments.
That night, we bought some apple cider vinegar. Drank one tablespoon before bed and again next morning. Three months on Dr. Bell analyzed his blood again.
She was speechless because William’s kidneys had regained function. She had no idea how, but told William to keep doing whatever he was doing!
Scientists researching vinegar agree on one thing. That vinegar mixed with ammonia creates a simple amino acid – one of the building blocks of proteins and DNA, essential for life.
Let me explain. Various acids are needed in our stomachs to maintain good PH level. We achieve this through diet. We need enough acidity for good digestion, but not so much that we get ill. It’s a fine balance.
Vinegar contains 4 to 7 percent acetic acid, a known healing property. PubMed reports it lowers blood pressure.
Another study published in 2010 by ACS Publications in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry is significant.
The authors of ‘Acetic Acid Bacterial Lipids Improve Cognitive Function in Dementia Model Rats’ present evidence that acetic acid bacteria, found in formented foods, is essential to building blocks in brain tissue.
Science is slowly revealing the multiple benefits of vinegar. The molecule in vinegar that helps sustain life may help us live longer, healthier lives.

We all know people who struggle with chronic illness. Digestive problems, for example, are common. Vinegar can help in many cases.
It can restore our PH balance to get rid of or prevent digestive and other chronic problems. Research suggests we can even prevent cancer with vinegar. (pubmed.com)
More proven health benefits of vinegar:
Aids digestion because your stomach needs high acid levels (in vinegar) to digest food.
Impacts blood glucose levels, insulin release, and metabolism, so helps with diabetes.
Treats and even overcomes infections with antimicrobial properties.
Lowers high blood pressure by regulating water content in tissues.
