Ow Eee..Tummy Bloating

31

ooooWWWWWoooooEeeeeeee….my tummy has been bloated and it hurts! So I whipped out the old remedy that I swear by: spinach and carrot juice with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. It is basically like fuel injector cleaner for humans. I love apple cider vinegar. It might not smell the best in the world but it does some really neat things :)

 

Did you know you can use it as…

• Detox bath: a cup or two of vinegar in a warm to hot bath is a fabulous detox.

• Allergy & Sore Throat Relief: 2 tablespoons of honey and 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water can help with allergies.
• Diuretic: drinking a spoonful of apple cider vinegar in a cup of water can help with bloating, as it is a natural, gentle diuretic.

• Acne treatment: 1 part apple cider vinegar and 4 parts water in a solution dabbed on acne can help to treat your skin.

• Dandruff treatment: straight apple cider vinegar (or a 1/2 vinegar/ 1/2 water solution) poured on your scalp and massaged in for a few minutes can help with dandruff and other irritated scalp conditions.

• Doggie hotspots and itching:  you can soak red paws in a vinegar water bath and let the vinegar dry on them to reduce itching, fungus and inflammation.  You can also mix up a half cider vinegar-half water solution in a spray bottle to treat    hotspots. Cut the hair carefully on and around the hotspot and then spray it on and re-apply often.  You should have a cone on your dog to keep your dog from re-opening these spots. I also mix some in with my dog’s bath water to help get her nice and squeaky clean :)

• Pet water supplement: a spoon of cider vinegar in your dog or cat’s water or food can create a healthier digestive system and acts as a natural anti-fungal.  Experiment to see if they like it in their water or food better!

• Weed killer: straight cider vinegar on weeds in the garden can help keep them at bay.

• Flower Power: fresh flowers can last longer with two teaspoons of cider vinegar and 2 teaspoons of sugar in the vase of water.

• Fruit fly trap: a bit of cider vinegar poured in a cup filled with vegetable oil can dramatically reduce fruit flier in your kitchen if you have an eruption of them in the summer.  It acts like a natural magnet and the flies get trapped in the oil.

• Salad dressing: a tablespoon of cider vinegar, about 1/4 cup olive oil and some fresh garlic and herbs crushed is just about the healthiest salad dressing you can use!

• Heartburn treatment: drinking a spoonful of apple cider vinegar in water can help with heartburn. But be careful, it is very acidic so if not diluted it can cause damage to your esophagus.

• Bug bite help: a little dab of straight or partially water-diluted vinegar can take the itch out of bug bites :)

• Weight loss:  Both the above salad dressing and a spoon of vinegar in a cup of water before meals can help with weight loss and help your body start craving healthier foods!

 

XoXo!
