    Thanks! I’m sure your remedy does work…but mine is dirt cheap, and I always have it here. No ordering necessary. 🙂

    I’ve tried many things to improve my sleep, but this one’s new to me. I hope it helps! I’ve heard that smarts and insomnia often coexist. Nice thing to ponder during wakeful wee hours… 😉

      I’ve never tried the ACV/baking soda for sleep, but it does help indigestion…more than anything I’ve ever tried. I like the theory about intelligence and insomnia though. Maybe it’s time to not worry about the sleep. 🙂

    That’s a great recipe Kristy. We all walk around acidic because we eat highly acidic foods. I have never mixed baking soda with apple cider vinegar. I take either one or the other as was prescribed by my doctor. Or, you can drink the juice of lime. It turns alkaline in your stomach. And by the way, if someone is suffering from the hick-ups, that also is a sign of acidity. Viruses and bacteria cannot survive in an akaline system, so your remedy is good for a lot of things that ail us. Along with the apple cider vinegar, I will add powder vitamin “C” to the mix to support my immune system. It helps me sleep too. Thanks for sharing this info! 🙂

      I was trying to find the link on the Earth Clinic website where I got the recipe, but I can’t find it. Apparently both help to alkalize, even together. But neither one on its own helps indigestion. I don’t get it too often, but sometimes…

      I’ve heard of the hiccups being caused by that. The powdered C helps you sleep? I may have to try that. I take a lot of C during the day (tablets) because they help keep me more alert, but I’ve never used the powder. 🙂

    Ewww! I’ve done the baking soda and water thing, but never knew to add cider. I’ll have to try that – and I’ll make sure to *add* it to the water, and not substitute it!

      It actually isn’t as bad as it sounds. The baking soda really cuts a lot of the sour from the vinegar. But there’s just something about the combination (found it on the Earth Clinic website)…it just works, and it works very quickly.

      Yeah, you REALLY want to make sure to add the water. I can’t be 100% sure, because I will NOT try it again, but it could have been because I didn’t mix it well enough. But it’s not worth trying again to see. 🙂

    Wow, that’s awful stuff. I hope you can rest and tame the tyrannical tummy too Kristy. Did you get the freezing rain and slop too?

      It’s not as bad as you might think. I use a straw, which also helps. But to me, it’s nowhere near as bad as a Rolaids or Pepto Bismol (?). I can’t handle chalky stuff and, as long as I never pass on adding the water again, this works…and it works much better than the other stuff. At least for me.

      Oh yes about the slop. It was terrible here. But at least the power didn’t go out, which was my biggest fear. Now the roads are ice and slush free, with 57 forecast for tomorrow, followed by snow on Wednesday. We do have it all in Michigan, don’t we? 🙂

        Indeed we do have the weirdest weather. My wife is from California and been here long enough to see why the natives say if you don’t like the weather, wait a while – it will change soon enough.

    I also am having trouble sleeping. First one thing and then another keeping awake. I also suffer from heartburn. I am going to give you remedy a try next time.

      Ooh…I hope you got some sleep, Nelva. Mine is from a couple of years of getting 3-4 hours sleep every day. Now that I can sleep more, my brain seems to be wired for the 3-4 hours. But I keep working at it. One of these days I’ll start getting 7 1/2 again (perfect for me).

      What is your heartburn remedy? Does it taste better than vinegar and soda? I wouldn’t mind something that didn’t make me pucker up when I take it. 🙂

    Thanks for the tip. Hope you can get some sleep for yourself.
