Uses of Vinegar

For centuries people have been using natural apple cider vinegar as a medicine for themselves and their pets in addition to a food. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, in 400 BC used vinegar mixed with honey as an energizing and healing tonic.

In more recent times, Dr D. C. Jarvis, a country doctor in Vermont, made note that many Vermonters used apple cider vinegar to successfully treat common ailments. It was a respected home remedy. So impressed by what he observed, he did experiments and then went on to write a book on his observations and experiments on the benefits of apple cider vinegar on both people and farm animals.
