Thanks for your comments.The doctor who told me about it said she had been taking it herself so I'll give it a cautious try and let you know what happens.Maybe physicians CAN heal themselves.

Hi,

I am not really adept with this however, studies have not shown substantial and conclusive evidence with regards to the role of apple vinegar on urinary tract infection.

The closest scientific article I can get showed that apple juice actually increases the risk for kidney stone formation after 6 years when taken at a specific amount each day.At this point however, there seems to be no harm in trying. Taking apple vinegar will be supplemental to your current medications and should not be used as a   substitute to medical treatment.
