Today, vinegar is being rediscovered for its potential to help prevent and treat a wide range of conditions. In "The Healing Powers of Vinegar", health journalist Cal Orey tells the remarkable story of vinegar, a time-honored folk remedy and modern health wonder.

I discovered this gem in a library years ago. Unfortunately, it was out-of-print; I promised myself that I would find one in a resale shop ? no luck!
Years passed; suddenly I found a newly revised version in a local store; I couldn?t get the book home fast enough. This edition is even better than the one I saw in the library; the author has added many recipes.
This book is practical and easy to use. Some of the helps:
- How vinegar helps in weight loss
- How vinegar helps in digestion
- How vinegar can be used with pets
- Using vinegar as a cleaning product.
