Wine vinegar is a common product in the folk medicine of the Slavic peoples as a cooling drink at high temperatures.
Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Bulgarians, Jews, Greeks, Romans and Germans used it to cook sour dishes, to store meat and vegetables, for soft drinks.
And quite naturally it finds a place in the healing practice. In an extensive work in the 15th century, Amasiatsi emphasizes that wine vinegar is the best: it helps with all kinds of headaches, toothaches, eczema, leg ulcers.
Wine vinegar is also useful for ear ulcers, clears the head of dandruff, stimulates digestion, strengthens the stomach, quenches thirst, stops bleeding and reduces ejaculation in men.
Against bad breath Avicenna recommended in 350 ml wine vinegar to put 35 g of dried sea onion, leave to soak in dark place for 7 days and after straining to drink 6 ml extracted every day.
In the 17th century, the Earl of Rumford, who served in the Bavarian royal court, became famous for his discovery of cheap military food, which was also used to feed the poor. It is a soup made with more water and vinegar, in which they boiled barley bulgur, peas and a few potatoes.
Lovers of sour foods who have stomach ailments should be careful with the use of vinegar in meals. This is recommended for the elderly, as well as for those suffering from joint pain, constipation, prostatitis and sexual weakness, as well as after recovery from debilitating disease.
