I only started taking Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey mornings and without honey, evenings, every day about 2 weeks ago and already I am feeling different!!!
I was recommended to ACV by my employer who has PSORIASIS.and has had it since 1987!! He has tried virtually every type of convential type of treatment and nothing has really worked Thats ultra light therapy,steroid creams and other creams,ointments.U name it and he has tried it. I understand that it is considered to be "incurable"!!
He belongs to the UK Psoriasis Forum that has over 3000 members and every spare moment he gets he is sending and receiving email messages giving advice and taking advice from people that have only just got it or people who feel like giving up life because they just cannot cope with it!! But at last by a stroke of luck or shall we say an answer to a prayer he came across ACV.
He has been taking it now for 6 weeks and only after 3 weeks "certain things were starting to happen"!! He has P, as its known to people with it,on his scalp,in his ears,on his neck,on his chest,on his arms,on his elbows,on both his thighs,on his knees,on his bottom and his privates!! But now the raised red scaly scabs are starting to disappear and the areas of red are thinning out and small amounts of normal skin are taking there place.When ever he shaves he always used to cut the
scabs on his chin and then he would bleed. That bleeding stopped yesterday after he shaved!! Other things have happened to him quite recently. He has stopped snoring and when he wakes up in the morning he can get straight out of bed and feel refreshed.He phoned me up yesterday evening to say that "he just could not believe it" but his grey hair has started to turn back into black its original colour!!!
He has posted a message on his P Forum stating all what I have stated here and he has put photos of his body parts showing what has happened but only a few members have taken any notice!! So I am hoping who ever reads this memo of mine and knows someone that has P that they inform them of it as soon as possible. The Cyder Vinegar that we both use is Aspall Organic Cyder Vinegar. Aspall were established in 1728 in Suffolk England.The Chevallier family own,manage and run the company
I am a quite fit and healthy 67 year old male and I have discovered that if I take 2 desert spoonfulls of ACV and half a desert spoon full of Pure Clear Honey just before I get on my indoor bike. I am able to cycle at quite a fast speed for 30 mins and do just under 6 miles.I always used to have to slow down as I got hit by lactic acid in my legs but now it does not happen!!! All down to ACV and the honey.
Here is a repost from a CureZoner:
ACV is destroying my psoriasis. by marlon
My psoriasis popped up out of the blue around October of 2003. I am 99% sure the trigger was stress because I can remember around that time i was stressed from the time i woke up to the time i went to sleep. When it first popped up I thought it was something else and got really worried about it, it took me at least 3 months to go to the doctor for fear of what the diagnosis might be. Finally, I mustered up enough courage to check myself in. Well there I was sitting on the table with my shirt and pants off pointing to the doctor where the patches were. Sadly the doctor had as much of a clue as I did. A senior doctor had to take a look at me before diagnosing what the condition was. When i learned it was psoriasis I was relieved but at the same time worried about what it was and how it would affect me. The doctor proceeded to give me a topical ointment and said it should go away in the summer (yea right).
Well I went home and did some research on my condition, that’s when it really hit home. I was devastated but paid no mind to it thinking it would go away on its own. Months started to pass and the itching and flaking were beyond control. I felt like the lowest form of a human being. I had skin peeling on my nose and small patches on my chest, sides, arms, legs, scalp, ears & a tiny one on the left cheek. I felt so miserable. I would pass by kids running around and people doing casual everyday things and I would feel so depressed that I couldn’t do those things without having to worry that someone is looking at me wondering what the heck that is in my ear or on my head or on my arm. That’s when I finally said enough is enough, there has to be some way to get rid of this thing. I bought all the non prescription treatments out there for the scalp and patches. They did little to help. Although 1 scalp treatment product lessened the patches on my head, it went from huge patches to really tiny patches. As i have continued to use these products and seeing little to no results, I finally accepted my fate and realized I might have to stay this way for the rest of my life.
Almost a year or so has passed and about 2 weeks ago I was surfing this forum when I saw several posts about ACV. Not knowing what it was, I proceeded to read the posts and finally I figured out it was (Apple Cider Vinegar). I scoured the web to find out more about this home remedy on other psoriasis forums and found that it was a very successful treatment. So I set out to my local grocery store and could only find Richards ACV instead of the suggested Braags. I figured it was better than nothing and started on the treatment of 2 teaspoons mixed with honey (in my case i used sugar since I didn’t have honey). 2 weeks later here I am, VERY HAPPY and giddy :). The ACV treatment is working. The patches are diminishing. They are no longer rough and flaky, but rather smooth, REGULAR HEALTHY skin is now there (only thing that remains is a mark where the patch once was, this should be easy to get rid of with cocoa butter or some kind of skin cream). The smaller tiny patches have completely healed up like popping a pimple.. Just a mark remains and the ones on my arms are beginning to heal up very nicely.
I truly believe that without the internet and these forums, I would still be suffering as I was almost a year ago. With the ACV Treatment and doing the following I’ve managed to see these results in less than 2 weeks.
I did the following:
1) When a psoriasis patch popped up, I didn’t scratch it at all, no matter how tempting.
2) I went to the doctors and got a topical ointment to put on the psoriasis.
3) I ate only vegetables and fruits, drank lots of water, and exercised frequently.
4) Remembered that my mind also had a involvement in my psoriasis and tried to stay away from stressful things while finding ways to keep myself occupied with being happy.
5) I started on the ACV Treatment and this out of everything else has done it for me.
Remember everyone, there is hope out there, psoriasis is the enemy and we must win this war.
Psoriasis is caused by one's body being out of acid/alkaline balance. I have a few suggestions that might help alkalize your body. I have been reasearching apple cider vinegar for about a year now. I have read hundreds of testemonials about ACV and other methods of healing psoriasis and alkalizing the body. http://curezone.com/blogs/m.asp?f=179&i=14
I found a perfect solution for you to consider: 1. Taking 3-4 baths a week with 2 cups of ACV[The inexspensive stuff in the grocery store is just as good for this application] - soak for 30 minutes then shower for a minute in cold water
2. 3 times a day, 30 minutes before meals to take a tablespoon of [raw from a health food store]ACV in a tepid glass of water. Add a little honey or blackstrap molasses for taste[I add cinnamon].
In addition to ACV, see if you can find neem oil from you health food store. I have found neem oil as an amazing oil for skin conditions. http://curezone.com/blogs/f.asp?f=380&t=33573
If you have an unhealthy diet with large amounts red meat, dairy, white bread, unrefined sugar, alcohol, and processed foods, you might consider changing to a more healthy and balanced diet and lifestyle.
Taking a tablespoon of Sea Salt and Distilled water three times a day could also help alkalize your body. Once your body is properly alkalized, you should watch what foods are drying out your skin. These steps are easy to do. Give it a month and you will be
a much more healthy person and your psoriasis should be gone. Make diet changes and take a shot of ACV & cinnamon when you feel Psoriasis coming back and you may never have to deal with the discomfort again.
