How do I Use Apple Cider Vinegar for Heavy Periods?
Apple cider vinegar is generally taken as a tonic for a wide variety of health problems, including heavy menstrual bleeding. Some people need as little as a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water once or twice a day. Others will need a tablespoon in a glass of water twice a day.
The apple cider vinegar can be added to apple juice or orange juice instead of water. These juices handily mask the strong taste of the vinegar. Others will prefer to make a warm tea to drink. Add equal parts of apple cider vinegar and honey to a mug (in other words, 1 teaspoon of each or 1 tablespoon of each.) Add hot water and stir. A dash of cinnamon can be added for flavor as well.
