Costochondritis- Apple Cider Vinegar

Hello friends, Here's a remedy I use 3x a day. I started it last week. Thanks Sally and Cathy! I add Bragg raw/organic honey to it. I'm using it to detox my body and fight candida- which I believe is a huge cause of Costochondritis. It's great in helping to aid in inflammation. If you have stomach problems, gerd, or acid refluc- I'd add it right away. It's not an immediate cure for costochondritis, but it's definitely a tool to add to your belt on your journey to healing. I've tried it, I like the results I see, and I'm keeping it. =)

"Apple cider vinegar is more of a natural health tonic that helps the body to heal itself and is especially effective when used as part of a general detox plan or a healthy lifestyle. That is when you'll see the best results.

The general recommended dosage is usually 2-3 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar and honey to taste in a glass of water, taken three times a day. The dosage and application, however, may vary depending on what it is being used for.

Here's a list of Apple Cider Vinegar remedies and recipes for various ailments. They're fun to try with no dangerous side effects.

  3. Awww thanks so much Lucy! I am praying for you too and really did want to encourage you. I have seen alot of miracles as the result of persistant prayer and we can't lose sight of that. This is such a strange affliction, all the fear and zillions of tests that go along with it. It can become so consuming. We have to cling to what we know is true! All your encouragement PLUS the practical information has felt like an anchor in the storm.

  5. Ahhh. posting issues, lol.


    You've really blessed me today. Told my hubby yesterday that I needed some encouragement.

    You are on my prayer list this week. Thank you so much for keeping me in your prayers. I really need them.

    You're words are wise. I was going to TONS of docs and definitely pushed God out of the picture because i was so scared. Doctors are great to use...but I was like a crazy chicken with my head cut off. ummm...kay, that's a gross analogy. =)You know what mean though...putting my faith in them and not the Lord.

    Not cool of me at all. I know he's forgiven me for that. Trying now to really listen to Him and not the fear. And cling to the TRUTH like you said! Preach it! =)


  6. hi lucy- i was here following up on your advice about vinegar and honey and was hoping to see that you knew about 'the mother' apple cider vin and 'raw' honey and am happy to see you do! i had forgotten about this, and am going to add it back to my regimen. also, after reading your above post about forgetting to reach 'in' for god, i want you to know about a book that 'saved' me years ago which i still keep nearby called 'streams in the desert'. check it out next time youre in a barnes and noble!
    hope today's a 'good' day!

  7. A.,

    Thanks for sharing that! =)


  8. I found you while searching for costo info for my mom.
    Organic apple cider vinegar with the mother and organic honey with warm water has helped me tremendously with acid reflux - GERD and NERD - the non-erosive cousin to GERD and LPR. A great substitute for proton pump inhibitors - Nexium, Prilosec, etc. without the negative side effects. Often the stomach produces too little hydrochloric acid versus the common belief of too much acid. That's why the apple cider vinegar drink taken before meals is such a help.

    Now I'm going to try it for mom's costochondritis symptoms. Thank you for your information. I'll keep you posted.

  9. Well it is now Jan 17,2017 and you are still helping people with this page..Costochondritis pain is so very painful and for me it lasts several minutes. Have been taken to ER so many times thinking it is heart attack. This is really helping me a lot and I cannot thank you enough...Thanks and God bless you for reaching out..Floria

  10. It is no secret that I have a very deep and personal relationship with God. I have pushed and resisted that relationship this past year through all the bullshit I have had to go through living with Herpes but once again, God is bigger than my stubbornness and broke through that outbreak cold sore and all I had Genital Herpes. For me personally, hearing over and over how I am not good enough has really invaded my mind in the worst way possible. I completely shut down and I was just waking up like is this how life going to end this temporary herpes outbreak “fuck everybody with herpes if you know what I mean” but let's be honest here...It is a cowardly to say no to herbal medicine. It is fear based. And it is dishonest to what my heart wants. Don't build a wall around yourself because you are afraid of herbals made or taking a bold step especially when it's come to health issues and getting cure. So many young men/ women tell me over and over that Dr Itua is going to scam me but I give him a try to today I feel like no one will ever convince me about herbal medicine I accept Dr Itua herbal medicine because it's cure my herpes just two weeks of drinking it and i have been living for a year and months now I experience outbreak no more, You can contact him if you need his herbal medicine for any such diseases like,HIV,Epilepsy Infertility, Herpes, Hepatitis, Schizophrenia,Cancer,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic,Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Alzheimer's disease,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic, Love Spell,. then what's app.+2348149277967.... My advice to any sick men/women out there is simple... Be Always an open book. Be gut wrenching honest about yourself, your situation, and what you are all about. Don't hold anything back. Holding back will get you nowhere...maybe a one way ticket to lonelyville and that is NOT somewhere you want to be. So my final truth...and I'm just starting to grasp this one..
