Is it true that apple cider vinegar is good for cleaning ateries of plaque? What about hydrogenated vegetable oil? Know any good recipes?

I used to live in England for several years and when we needed to do an internal cleanse, apple cider vinegar or just apple cider where always on the top of the list.  However, I am not so sure that it will work for your arteries and/or cholesterol.

There are several natural food nutrients on the market (the scientific research is called Glycobiology - read up on this at http://glyco.dexlen.us - info only) that will help your body get rid of toxins, as well as neutralize fat deposits, cholesterol and clogged arteries. One of my newsletter readers actually avoided a triple by-pass because of these products.

If you are looking for an overnight 'cure' there is none (at least not to my >20 year research).  When you revert to holistic, alternative or natural supplements, they will take their time to work their way through your body.  Eventually, and it can be several months, these product will produce a result.  

Good luck and if you have a question, please email me.

My grandfather has taken large doses of garlic pills, and apple cider vinegar with tremendous results. I don't know how high of a dose he takes with garlic, but he drinks some tea with apple cider vinegar and takes his garlic every night. At age 74 the doctor thought he was on strong medication, and when my grandfather told him what he took he was in shock.

I am surprised this question has had so many little replies...I would be very interested in trying out the apple cider vinegar (with regard to lowering cholesterol) if a dosage could be recommended...could it also help in losing weight and getting the fat off my liver ?

Penile

Why do you have a fatty liver?  I read some stuff about apple cider vinegar and helping with cholesterol and weight loss.  I tried it for weight loss without success, but then, I do come from the land of the obese.

Neil - the best way to lower cholesterol is to lose weight. As weight drops, so does your cholesterol level.

...well..the assumption is that because my tummy is where my fat resides(and that is also in the vicinity of the liver,) that if I was to lose the weight, the fatty mass will also go too.....I would certainly welcome opinions though...........and waves of willpower...

Hi John,

I did in fact post this as an answer to your same query in the other thread....did you not check it ?

Odourless garlic capsules are widely available in any health store/chemist/pharmacy.........I've taken them before and they're great...no garlic breath at all......don't know where you are but here's a link to a UK supplier http://www.wassen.com/nutrition-vitamins/nutritional-supplements-Garlic.htm

I have used ACV ( Apple Cider Vinegar ) for nearly 10 years
and find it an excellent tonic.
A proven antiseptic it will see off any stomach bug.
Colitis too I shouldn't wonder.
Taken with a meal ( in water ) it aids digestion as well as any wine.
I had varicose veins appearing about 15 years ago.
These have disappeared since taking Blackstrap Mollases
( 1 Tsp ) every morning mixed with hot water and Apple Juice
( Copella or similar good quality ).
Arterial Plaque ? Never heard of Cider Vinegar as a cure. But discovered recently that Cayenne Pepper apparently is.
Do a search for 'Cayenne' on Google.

Your right Neil, You are just cuddly, The sweetest little teddy bear! I think you might loose those fatty deposits with the weight and the lowered cholesterol. Cholesterol leaves deposits all through your body as I understand it. I would think they will disapate as the cholesterol goes down. I am no Doctor, but it seems plausible to me that would make the most since anyway. Seems I am late on this reply also!

Yes, isolate yourself from contact with other people - then you don't have to worry about your breath anymore.

I have been told to drink it to aid with cholesterol! I don't know that it doesn't work but don't know that it does either. My Doctor suggested it! She is into wholeistic natural herbal therapy and remedies before and with other medications.

When dealing with cholesterol and CVD one may  look at proper eating patterns focusing on a higher soluable content with proper combination of the proper fat ratio.  Apple cider is loaded with nutrients that help with the heart. potassium is probably the most benefical compenent of apple cider along with malic acid that can help with FM.  One has to be careful because too much acid will erode your enamel on your teeth leaving hello film on them.  Some people may recommend drinking it through a straw to avoid this. More so the most benefit people get from ACV is the increase of acetic acid which can fuel the krebs cyle providing cellular energy.
