After my recent bout of ill health I was worried that the candida was back. Well I dont think it is as I am feeling miles better now but I wanted to share one of my health secrets with you – Cider Apple Vinegar

When I suffered from candida I never heard of this natural remedy and I wish I had. Its amazing! And best of all its low cost 🙂

Cider Apple Vinegarhelps with a wide range of ailments and diseases according to feedback from sufferers on the internet. Of course moderation is the key as always and make sure you drink it diluted or you’ll wreak your teeth.

I’ve read a lot about people who take a tablespoon full with hot water and honey to taste on a regular basis to alleviate illnesses such as arthritis and even cancer and many use it as a preventative measure too. It is also used to treat candida and yeast infections. Now when I was on the anti-candida diet I did my very best to stick to the diet and I would have worried about eating honey so I would have tried to drink it with the minimum amount of honey.

I also use Cider Apple Vinegarin a diluted spray to kill mold around the house. I prefer to avoid chemicals where possible so this is perfect for me.

If you want to try it and can’t find it in your local store then here is a link to an online store selling cider apple vinegar
You might like to read the feedback of customers who have bought this product (click on the bottle to reach the page and scroll down). This stuff is pretty darn good!

I’ve also read of people putting cider apple vinegar in their bath water to ease yeast and thrush infections. I used to add some tea tree oil (mixed with a base oil or milk) to my bath to treat candida and I’m sure it helped.

Interestingly I first heard of cider apple vinegar as a way of losing weight. Now I wonder if I put some in the bath will it help to dissolve away the fat?!!! Yeah I wish! Seriously though if you are feeling rotten why not investigate cider apple vinegar’s benefits? I’ve added it to my ‘can’t do without’ list. I have a large mug full every day (I quite like the taste so long as I add honey) to help prevent illnesses and I’m hoping to avoid this winter’s usual coughs and flu bugs. If you use cider apple vinegar especially if its to fight candida please let me know (leave a comment at the end of this post or email/twitter me) as it would be great to share experiences to help others.

One of my favourite websites is Earth Clinic and cider apple vinegar is recommended by more people as a treatment for ailments than any other folk remedy! Just spend some time on this site and I think you’ll be impressed!

One last thing, if you are suffering from severe candida then please try any new remedy slowly and in moderation. So I would suggest a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar diluted with a small amount of honey one day and see how you feel. If you suffer from a stomach ulcer I would try a smaller amount (maybe a teaspoon full well diluted) to see if you can tolerate it.

    Hi Katie. You make me laugh! I wish apple cider vinegar in the bath would melt away fat too! I’ve used apple cider vinegar for years after my grandmother taught me that its great for colds, coughs and all manner of bugs and ailments. I’m not surprised it kills candida as its great for killing mold as you say. I drink it in warm water with no honey as I have to avoid all types of sugar but I’ve got used to the taste.
    Keep up the good work!

      Hi Margaret

      Thanks for the feedback! I’ve tried the cider apple vinegar in the bath idea! Well its worth a try 🙂 But I had to use scented oil to mix it up to avoid smelling strange.
      I’m not surprised that your grandmother recommended it as I’ve read a lot about how it was used in olden days very successfully. There’s so much knowledge we seem to have forgotten.

    My family and I have taken organic apple cider vinegar for years. We take it to ward off winter flu and colds mostly but I’ve also used it to kill off candida. I second what you said about recommending that people dilute it. They must as it can damage their teeth otherwise. I take a tablespoon full in warm water and I find it soothing to drink especially as I know its doing me good! I also have a friend who takes it for arthritis.

    Hi Katie
    I’m a big fan of your blog which has helped a lot. But I’m nervous about trying vinegar when so many people say to avoid it when on the Candida diet. Why is this vinegar different?

    Hi Katie,
    Thanks for the valuable information about apple cider vinegar. It’s one I was not aware of! I know garlic and plain yogurts are often mentioned for relief from yeast infections but I will look into the info on your post.

    Great post.

    Keep up the good work!
