No doubt somewhere in the past this topic has been covered but a search has not revealed much.
After reading some ones post about the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar , I decided to try it out. Bought a bottle of organic apple cider vinegar from Holland and Barretts. Started taking two tea spoons of it in some water ,pre breakfast.
First three days , I noticed little effect , although felt some increased stomach pain prior to a BM and larger clear out than normal. To-day I took a little more, maybe 3 tea spoons, and after breakfast , a lot of wind type pains , sorer than normal ,urgent need to go and big watery clear out which took a long while to cease. Pain now left me after this but basically it just felt to me , that my normal IBS symptoms were just worse than normal--heightened pain and system clear out. At first I thought ,what's caused this , what did I eat, then it occurred to me that the ACV is the only real change to my eating habits.
I cannot be certain if it is the ACV that is causing this but it certainly feels like that is the case and I am not sure if I want to continue taking it. Maybe this happens initially, then it settles down and provides benefits-- any thoughts anyone.
Just wondering if anyone else had a similar problem. I assume this could be acting like some kind of detox for the system --but what are the benefits . Maybe does nothing for some of us but helps others.
I look forward to any replies and apologise if this subject has been covered in the past.
