Frequent visits to the doctor can be costly and stressful. Having a family and children to care can especially result in high costs, frequent visits, long waits and hefty prescriptions. If you find doctor’s visits particularly stressful, you may benefit from trying a few natural home remedies for common illnesses – cheaper to make, easy to produce and guaranteed all-round natural goodness for your family.
One particularly handy addition to any household is a batch of apple cider vinegar (ACV), used for centuries as an all-round treatment for a variety of common conditions such as allergies, acid reflux, headaches, yeast infections, skin conditions, cold and flu symptoms, acid reflux, gout and much more.
If you purchase organic ACV, the beneficial properties of organic apples are retained in the vinegar and the double-fermentation process produces life-giving nutrients and enzymes, making ACV the powerhouse of Mother Nature’s natural resources. Not content with working wonders only for people, ACV is also excellent for treating conditions in animals.
Apple Cider Vinegar for Children and Adults
It’s natural for children to become sick more often than adults; their bodies are still building immunity to the world around them and, unlike adults, children spend more time outdoors and socialising with each other. It’s easier for mild ailments to spread amongst children, but luckily most of these can be relieved with a touch of ACV.
The dosage amounts for children and adults needn’t be adjusted too much. There isn’t anything harmful in ACV, but discretion should be taken when giving large amounts to children.
