I have unlocked the thread, seeing as I am a mod, and while maybe its not important, I'd like to let whoever locked it know that's a bit rude, before the topic has even begun. I am not speaking of general drinking, as we often see argued here, it is, rather, a very specific question. So please, unless it gets out of hand, do not lock it. Thanks
Some time back, actually, my wife did use apple cider vinegar, Braggs, in fact. At the time she was dealing with gallstones. She ran out the gallstones, but got a bleeding ulcer, which was pretty bad for a bit. One led to the other.
basically, my wife's issues with her health began some years back when she began nursing school-to go, she ended up having to retake all of her childhood vaccines, because her mother had lost her records. Within a couple days, she got very sick, and while she has been up and down, she has, for the most part, remained sick, and it can be directly attributed to the vaccines. In reality, even after seeing doctors, no one really knows just what is causing her this issue. Nothing specific has been found. I suspect it is partially her health, but also, it seems to exacerbate when she gets under stress. If she doesn't get enough sleep for her job, her stomach will go-if we lose a goat, her stomach goes. All sorts of things can set it off. Maybe this is one reason why I looked at the wine thing-because alcohol, being a depressant, can reduce stress if used properly, not as just a beverage, but more like one would use cough syrup, (10-12% alcohol).
So, it just ran through my head that since Paul recommneded wine, which may, indeed, be new wine, I thought I would throw out the topic to see what others had to say, and I appreciate your input.
Another thing we are going to try, is that we know wine, in the Bible, even alcoholic wine, was not really the same wine we have today. In fact, it was probably 'fermented' using live bacteria, rather like leavening bread. It doesn't ferment in the same way standard wine does, and we are thinking about seeing if we can make this ourselves.
