Margaret Hills, a State Registered Nurse, was an authority on apple cider vinegar. Her popular books on apple cider vinegar as a treatment for arthritis trace her own recovery from crippling pain and immobility.
She, in turn, was influenced by the famous Vermont practitioner, Dr. D. C. Jarvis, M.D. Dr. Jarvis first wrote about apple cider vinegar in his book, "Folk Medicine: A Vermont Doctor's Guide to Good Health". Both Margaret Hills and Dr. Jarvis give practical examples in their books of patients who found long-term significant relief from the pain of arthritis by regular use of apple cider vinegar, along with sensible diet plus vitamin and mineral supplements.
