  1. Weight Loss:Many people drink apple cider vinegar to help with weight management. Consuming it daily is thought to:
  • help reduce bad cholesterol
  • fight off cravings
  • reduce abdominal fat

Overall, it seems like apple cider vinegar is useful as a weight loss aid, mainly by promoting satiety and lowering blood sugar and insulin levels.

  1. Can Kill Many Types of Harmful Bacteria

Vinegar can help kill pathogens, including bacteria. It has traditionally been used for cleaning and disinfecting, treating nail fungus, lice, warts and ear infections.

  1. Can help manage blood sugar levels and even fight diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is characterized by high blood sugar levels, either because of insulin resistance or an inability to produce insulin.

However, high blood sugar can also be a problem in people who don’t have diabetes. It is believed to be a major cause of aging and various chronic diseases.

  1. Can Reduce Candida

Candida is a naturally occurring bacteria in the body, often associated with yeast infections and negative bacterial overgrowth. The natural enzymes in apple cider vinegar can help the body get rid of yeasts associated with candida overgrowth in humans. Candida excess symptoms include foggy brain, excessive tiredness, poor memory, sugar cravings and others.

  1. Can Lower Cholesterol and Improve Heart Health

Heart disease is currently the world’s most common cause of premature and preventable deaths. There are a few biological factors linked to heart diseases and those factors can be improved by consuming vinegar.

An observational study from Harvard show that women who ate salad dressings with vinegar had a reduced risk of heart disease.

But this type of study can only show an association, it cannot prove that the vinegar caused anything.

So, how do you take it, how much, for how long?

You can take the raw apple cider vinegar directly from a bottle (mixed with water) every day. But that is often hard to take for a lot of people because:

  • it has a harsh, acidity taste
  • can cause people to gag or even get nauseous
  • the acidity in the vinegar can damage your teeth enable in the long term

A better option is to take it in capsules, like the ones from Apple Cider Vinegar Superior

This one is infused with Spirulina and kelp and all you have to do is take 1 capsule with each meal (3 capsules per day).

Detox Oil Massage (Abhyanga)

An Abhyanga Massage is a warm oil, self-administered massage that helps balance your physical constitution, moisturize the skin, helps the skin to release toxins, and is known to help tone muscles all over your body.

You can use a variety of oils and Ayurveda, the science of life and Eastern medicine traditions in India, recommends sesame or almond oils for Vata types, coconut and sunflower for Pitta and corn and olive oils for balancing Kapha. However, if you don’t know your Ayurvedic type, do not despair: simply pick sesame and almond oils in winter and coconut or sunflower in summer.

The massage can be done in the morning before your shower, or in the evening before bed. I often do it once a week in the evenings.

Check out the video and the description on how to do another version of the Abhyanga massage below the video:

How to Do The Massage

  1. Start by warming the oil to skin temperature, and drizzle a small amount of oil into the palms of your hands. (Warm the oil by holding the bottle under warm water, never use a microwave).
  2. Massage the top of your scalp (on days when you wash your hair), pay particular attention to the circumference of your ears, and the soles of your feet.
  3. Massage with long strokes on your limbs, and round strokes on your joints.
  4. It’s best to leave the oil on the body for 20 minutes before washing it off in a warm shower or bath.
  5. Try not to use a lot of soap, let the water rinse out the excess and the towel get rid of the rest. At the end of the shower, your skin should feel silky but not oily.

I hope you love it as much as I love it. Let me know in the comments below!
