Gallbladder Help with Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) Apple cider vinegar has been touted as a folk remedy and supplement to help your gallbladder and gallstone pain.

Gallbladder Help with Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

This natural home remedy, also called cider vinegar, ACV for short, contains acetic, lactic, and citric acids. However, the malic acid apple cider vinegar contains may be the most beneficial if you have gallbladder problems. Apple cider vinegar comes from fermented apple cider. During fermentation, the apple cider sugars are broken down first into alcohol and then into vinegar. Unlike white vinegar, apple cider vinegar is usually a light brown color.

Study Shows Meditation Changes Brain Structure in Just 8 Weeks - Family Health Guide

This is the first research to document meditation-produced changes in the brain. Previous research has identified differences in brain activity and structure between practised meditators and non-meditators. Researchers noted that long-term meditation alters brain-wave patterns, with greater activity in brain circuits involved in attention. They also found that brain regions associated with attention and sensory processing were thicker in meditators than in controls. The current study is the first to document that these structural changes are in fact produced by meditation.
