    This Innovation was submitted after the first part of the June, 2017 seminar.

    P.B.: Use Bragg's apple cider vinegar for muscle cramps in your legs. Soak a wash cloth in hot water. Squeeze the water out then pour ACV on the cloth and wash your legs with it. Usually stops cramps right away.

    I use Dead Sea Magnesium Oil in a spray bottle ( ) for leg cramps. Works fast. I keep a bottle by the bed at night. Amazon has it. Make sure you get the brand from Magnum Solace. Its 100% natural and works the best in my experience.

  3. Regarding apple cider vinegar for muscle cramps: Will any ACV do for this application or does it need to be the good stuff (raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized, organic and with the mother?)

    Great question. We use the raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized, organic ACV. It definitely works better. The two best brands we've found are Bragg's and Spectrum Naturals. These are usually available at most supermarkets with health food departments and, of course, in health food stores.

  5. This is not a recommendation. Just an observation: I was prescribed a diuretic to supplement my hypertension medication. I read somewhere that Apple Cider Vinegar acts as a diuretic, so after talking with my primary physician I decided to try substituting the ACV for the Rx. It's only been a couple of weeks but so far my blood pressure has remained about the same. I expect I'm receiving additional health benefits from the ACV as well, but at the very least I'm excited about being off the prescription med.

    Congratulations to you! This is exactly what we mean by taking more responsibility for your own health. The ACV will certainly have health benefits without the side effects of a prescriptive diuretic. What was your blood pressure before your hypertension medication? And, what is it with it?

    The best way to use the apple cider vinegar is to mix enough with water (half and half) to cover whatever you're treating e.g. a foot, ankle, hand, etc.. or enough to soak a compress several times. Heat your mixture to a comfortably hot temperature. Soak whatever you need until your mixture cools. Patients tell me you can reuse your mixture but there is no consensus on how many times.

  8. Hi Doc. Sorry I missed your question. Pre-meds my blood pressure was about 140 over 90. I think that falls into the pre-hypertensive range. With the prescription meds it averages 130 over 80. By substituting the ACV for the prescriptive diuretic the averages have remained about the same. Although, I can't really say that I'm feeling any better by taking the ACV, except that it feels good to eliminate one of the prescribed medications.

    Hi Tim. It's my understanding that, prior to prescriptive blood pressure medication being invented, 140/90 was considered normal blood pressure. Mine is usually 140/90 and I do not take any prescriptions.

    Regular exercise such as walking, biking, swimming, Tai Chi, etc. helps regulate blood pressure. And, meditation ( ) and numerous dietary recommendations ( ) are of great benefit.

    I certainly think keeping yours within a "normal" range without a prescriptive diuretic is a major plus.
