I used Dr. Jarvis honey & vinegar for arthritis in l974. Then my finger joints were constantly sore. I've had no problem since. It also took care of constant indigestion problem. He says by adding this acid(vinegar) keeps our body slightly acid prevents many illnesses ie colds etc. I believe it. Indigestion is caused by the stomach not being acid enough. Only when it is acid enough will the empty valve open to empty the stomach.
I have more recently gotten a lot of benefit from
using kelp from his recommendation. Open heart surgery a year ago left me energy-less. Four weeks of kelp was like going around the corner. The shortage of iodine seems to be the key. e-mail texasjackreed@Bluebonnet.net

My mother was cured of arthritis from drinking Dr. Jarvis' solution of apple cider vinegar water. He also recommends many other old-fashioned cures. Among them--castor oil. My 13-year-old son had athlete's foot and applied caster oil to it and it was gone in two days. This was after using lots of drug store remedies. This is a book to keep in your medicine cabinet!

For those interested in Folk Remedies, this is one of the few books I've read that go into detail on the tests the author has personally performed to determine if the remedies work or not. The book centers around the use of Apple Cider Vinegar, although from the title and table of context you wouldn't know it. I've tried out some of the applications for apple cider vinegar and honey and found them to work just as the author said they would.
I got more useful information from this book published in 1966 than any book on folk remedies I've read that were published after that date. The only rival for useful information would be online at [...].

In 1988 my Mom could not sit, feed herself, or function in a multitude of ways. The crazy thing was this all occured within a 30 day stretch of time. She was diagnosed w/severe arthritis & put on heavy meds. They gave her some relief but that is all. I took out every book in the county library determined to find a cure. After researching through many, many books I came across this little gem. I will tell you that I immediately started my mother on apple cider vinegar, honey, and water. When we returned for her first revisit to her rhumetologist there was no swelling, or outward appearances of her ever having had arthritis. He had us go to the lab for bloodwork, and called us within a couple of days. So back we went, only for him to tell us that there were no longer any indications of the arthritis, and had he not examined her himself initially he would swear that we got the wrong lab work. My Mom passed away in 2009 and never had another day of arthritic pain. Not only that, but her severe struggles with phlegm disappeared also. These are a few of the things I learned from this book. This doctor should be lauded for his years of searching for the reason why a whole area of the US is/was arthritis free; that's right, no arthritis in the populace for over a decade. Do yourself a favor & read this gem.

This is a very interesting book. One of the intriguing things mentioned in the book is that honey is a heart healty sweetener! I have been trying to find the best sweetener for coffee, etc. for a long time and now I am using honey and it works just fine.

This book has a lot of good, old fashioned tips for healthy living.

Incredibily important book on natural medicine that has been practiced in Vermont for some hundreds of years. Definitely a scientific basis as presented by the country doctor that practiced among the Vermonters. He did very convincing studies proving most of the tenets of this system. It has to do with humans and animals.

i had a copy of Dr. Jarvis' book many years ago and having lent it to someone, it disappeared from my book shelves. a friend of mine has rather severe arthritis and i remembered that there was a formula for honey and vinegar in this book that had helped 2 or 3 people that i had known. also, two tsp of vinegar do wonders for my digestive tract. just for my general well-being i now begin each day with a glass of water, 2 tsp of honey and 2 tsp of vinegar. tastes really good and i am convinced that everybody should be taking this "wonder drug". the book was delivered within the stated delivery time and it is remarkably good condition.

Reading this book is very enlighting. The medical community is coming around to the authors way of thinking. Apple cider vinager is such a staple of life. It has come full circle from the writting of this book to now. It makes me stop and think how simple his suggestions are in comparasion to what todays doctors expect you to do and pills to take. If you are at all interested in apple cider vinager and it's benefits, then this book is well worth it.
