Yoder's Good Health Recipe is a unique all-natural herbal tonic that has been used by satisfied customers for over fifteen years. It's an old family recipe that combines the goodness of aged apple cider vinegar and fourteen herbs and spices.
The use of medicinal herbs is sometimes misunderstood and is often ridiculed by many within the medical profession. Rather than studying the history of herbal medicines, many of the young doctors choose to ignore it in favor of high-tech, high-priced pharmaceuticals that are supported by millions of dollars of advertising.
We believe that there is a place for medicinal herbs right along side the thousands of synthetic drugs on the market today.
The herbs contained in our recipe have been used both individually and in combination to relieve and/or treat over 130 ailments and conditions.
Because of constraints placed on us by the FDA, we are unable to make any claims regarding the use of these herbs. Please check out the books in your health food store, or look on the internet to see why actual users of these different herbs use them.
We recommend that you buy a good book on herbs if you want to explore the history of their varied uses.
The way we make our recipe is truly unique. We hand mix and hand bottle our product in an FDA-approved Amish kitchen in South Carolina. It's an old world product made in an old-world way.
Our recipe is not a cure-all. Different herbs and cider vinegar affect each of us differently. It may help you in one way, while your friend or spouse may have a totally different experience.
We can't tell you precisely how the herbal tinctures are made but be assured we use low-temperature percolation methods that insure that all of the nutrients and other good stuff is not destroyed in the process. We follow the old handwritten instructions precisely so that our recipe is just like what Grandma used to make.
We feel so strongly that you will like our recipe, we offer a no-nonsense MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE. If you try it for sixty days and you don't think that it has helped you in some way, simply return the bottles and your receipt to the store where you bought them and get a full refund.
The tinctures used in the product are made using a combination of methods over a time frame of about two weeks. Both hot and cold infusion and percolation methods are used.
The herbs contained in the product have been historically used in remedies for a variety of health conditions. Below, we have listed some of those uses, but we make it very clear that we do not claim nor imply that our product should be used for any of those ailments or conditions.
If a customer thinks the product may help him/her, that’s a decision based on his/her knowledge and not based on any claims by us.

Vinegar is a very misunderstood substance. Vinegar is defined as a mixture of acetic acid and water. There are a number of types of vinegars available- apple cider vinegar, malt vinegar, wine vinegar, and distilled vinegar, both flavored and unflavored. Only real apple cider vinegar has any medicinal qualities. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. Aged apple cider vinegar is used in making our product.
Many distilled vinegars are produced through a process using coal tar. It’s vinegar because it’s a mixture of acetic acid and water, but it’s pretty much worthless except for use as a preservative or cleaning fluid. Don’t be fooled by the label on the bottle. Buy a gallon of Heinz vinegar at the supermarket and chances are the label will say “Apple Cider Flavored Distilled Vinegar”. This vinegar has never seen an apple.
Malt vinegars are good for flavoring fish and other foods. Wine vinegars are also good for cooking certain dishes. Both have a tenderizing affect. After all, that acetic acid isn’t just going to sit there and do nothing.
Our apple cider vinegar is made through a fermentation process using apples and apples only. It is 100% organic and is high in potassium and other vitamins and minerals. It is considered as one of nature’s perfect foods. Some call it the “elixir of life”.
High quality apple cider vinegar usually contains a slimy substance known as “Mother”. The mother will continue to grow throughout the shelf life of the vinegar. It is NOT a sign that the vinegar has spoiled. It IS a sign that the vinegar is of high quality and is not distilled.
During the process of making our product, we double filter it to remove any mother that is present (most people just don’t like the looks of it). Dependent upon a lot of factors, the mother may continue to grow and the residue of the herbs may attach itself to the mother, forming strings of dark slime in the bottle of the product. For that reason, we recommend that the user shake the product before each use. This will keep the mother broken up and make the product look better. If your product forms mother, don’t be alarmed. Just shake it vigorously. If it doesn’t break up to your satisfaction, you can strain the recipe through a coffee filter or cloth to get rid of the mother. Be assured that any slime that may form in the bottle is NOT harmful.
