this ailment. However, Cyril Scott mentions in his booklet on cider vinegar that the prime cause of obesity is the insufficient oxidation of the blood, he
goes on to say, "Now the safe and salubrious treatment, proved over years of trial, is to be found in nothing more complicated than cider vinegar - the
reason being, as already implied, that the ailment is conductive to the proper oxidation of the blood." Two teaspoons of cider vinegar should be taken
in a glassful of water on rising in the morning. To obtain the best results possible this should be taken before each meal and during the day over a
period of some time. Natural methods always take longer to work, as the body has to adapt itself, especially the skin in this instance, as if too much

Editor's note: Brushing your teeth with apple cider vinegar is probably not safe; it may be too acidic for your tooth enamel. Using the mixture as a mouthwash should not be a problem for your tooth enamel since it is a very weak mixture, but you can rinse your mouth out with plain water afterwards just to be safe.

But, you can always rinse your mouth out with plain water afterwards just to be safe.
The skin is a very important part of the body, as it is the major organ of elimination. Besides being an effective eliminator the skin
also absorbs substances into the body. In view of this fact it is very important to understand that we should be very careful with what we place on
the skin. Unnatural substances such as cosmetics, which contain chemicals are very detrimental to the skin health. This is also true for the comrnercial
soap which we use for washing the body. The skin needs an acid mantle to maintain its lustre and glow - however, due to the extreme alkalinity of soap
reacting on the skin, this causes a number of disorders. Soap also contains animal fats and hormones, synthetic perfumes and preservatives; therefore, it
should not be used to cleanse the body.

approximately a palmful of the mixture. First apply to the arms and shoulders, rubbing the solution into the skin briskly. The legs and feet can be done in
the same manner, together with the body. A brisk rubbing action should be used to massage the cider vinegar solution into the skin. You will soon find that
the solution has been completely absorbed by the skin, therefore, no towelling down is needed.
