D. C. Jarvis M.D., a Vermont country doctor, noted in 1958 that apple cider vinegar was an honored home remedy by many Vermonters. They used it to treat numerous ailments as well as aches and pains. It impressed him so much he wrote a book about his observations on the benefits of apple cider vinegar, which he titled Folk Medicine.

Dr. Jan McBarron, a weight loss specialist, consumes 2 Tablespoons of vinegar in a glass of water in the morning before running 3 miles. She does this to stay healthy and slim. For 10 years she battled her weight, trying nearly every diet in existence. She finally found that by adding apple cider vinegar and red wine vinegar to her diet she was able to keep weight off and began prescribing the same regimen to her patients.

Dr. Julian Whittaker M.D., who has practiced medicine over 20 years at the Whittaker Wellness Institute in Newport Beach, California says he drinks vinegar and thinks others should do so too. Dr. Whittaker in May of 1997 admitted that he takes a teaspoon of raw honey and apple cider vinegar in a glass of warm water once a day, because there is enough evidence of the benefit that he made it his daily routine.
