DO NOT drink vinegar straight. I’m talking about just a tiny sip here. Otherwise you can make the problem worse, (see my video Vinegar Mechanisms & Side Effects (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/vinegar-mechanisms-side-effects/)). Vinegar is great stuff, though. Check out my recent video series for why I now include it in my own family’s daily diet:
• Does Apple Cider Vinegar Help with Weight Loss? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/apple-cider-vinegar-help-weight-loss/)
• Vinegar and Artery Function (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/vinegar-artery-function/)
• Can Vinegar Help with Blood Sugar Control? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/can-vinegar-help-with-blood-sugar-control)
• Optimal Vinegar Dose (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/optimal-vinegar-dose)
There’s another way to treat hiccups, one that I’ve used myself since I was a kid. Since then I’ve never had more than one or two hiccups because I can stop them in their tracks. Learn my secret in the next video, How to Strengthen the Mind-Body Connection (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-to-strengthen-the-mind-body-connection).
