Hallo AWers! I've finally managed to get my financial aid restated and it looks like I won't be working fast food for the rest of my life. But now that I have that problem done, I have another one. My asthma.

I found out ACV (apple cider vinegar) is supposed to be good for it. You drink 2-4 tablespoons of it a day. It sounded easy, so I picked up a small jug of it for less than a buck at the Mart of Walls and mixed it up with a BIG glass of water because I heard you had to dilute it alot because ACV is strong and icky.

I stirred a tablespoon up good in three cups of water, then took a big swig.

After dry-heaving into the sink for fifteen minutes, I decided to find a different natural treatment for my asthma.

So, AWers, what horrible natural cures have you put yourself to? Every tried osha? Spikenard?

Try black coffee. You can put sugar in, but no creme or milk. Works for me.

Is it okay if it's decaff? I get so hyper if I drink caff.

I mix my ACV with hot tea and honey. The ACV is almost like lemon... if you squint and pretend a little. ;)

Decaf is fine. It's not the caffeine that does it. That's just a bonus to those of us who can't function without the stuff.

What?! You wouldn't be able to either if you lived in Tim Hortons country :D

I ended up mixing mine with apple cider. It was almost potable. I had to take Rolaids after I drank it though.

I've always been high-energy, like, bouncing off different planets high-energy. I think I'll give decaff a try. Is there any brand that tastes better than another?

For decaf, I would recommend Sanka. Maxwell house decaf isn't bad either when it's instant.

Ah! Added calcium! :)

Theoretically, the ACV eventually takes care of the heartburn, too. I've got GERD, and it really has made it better (well... the ACV and my Prilosec...)

Is this before or after you nearly died from disgust? =D
