Apple Cider Vinegar/ Baking Soda for Psoriasis

Thanks for the information! Through this remedy,Yahweh seems to be healing my Psoriasis plaques (all!) HalleluYah! I started taking this 3X's a day about a week ago:

2 Tbsp.____ Cider Vinegar mixed with 1 tsp. Baking Soda. (I am 160 lbs. You may want to use less or more baking soda.) Mix this with warm pure water 1/2 to 3/4 cup. I take first on rising, during the day, and before sleep at night. The large plaques on my leg are only faint pink patches now, as are the ones under my arms and other places. Before I started drinking this drink, my leg plaques were shedding skin at least twice a day and I seemed to be itching all over. I do follow a healthy diet, taking a number of supplements including lecithin capsules. I was waiting for my Psoriasis to disappear completely before reporting my case. However, maybe my words will help you now if you are are being plagued by Psoriasis as I was. May you also be blessed by this remedy is my prayer!

I was wondering is the baking soda you are referring to simple plain baking soda that the usa puts in their frigerator( pure baking soda)?

EC: Yes!

I have had EXCELLENT success with ACV (2tbs) and Baking Soda (1/4 tsp or so) in a glass of water three times per day especially upon waking. I also mix a small thermos with another two doses and sip it during the afternoon. I definitely find it energizing and the psoriasis/eczema (whatever it is -- apples/oranges) I've had on my elbows ever since an extended fast is clearing up PRONTO. I'm very excited. I think I'll be a lifelong devotee. Ted -- you're awesome. I'm also taking a bit of borax occasionally and experimenting with the sodium thiowhateveritis. Best of luck to everyone.

There are huge differences between psoriasis and eczema. If you are not sure what you have, you should be correctly diagnosed. They are not at all the same thing.

I have suffered from psoriasis for years but have been able to control it with different types of creams, lotions, antibiotics etc from doctors and skin specialists but lost faith a few years ago & thought their must be an alternative out there and decided to research on the internet. I found aloe vera gel to be wonderful for 4-5 years but psoriasis always needs a change in treatment methods after a while so after having a terrible outbreak on my face (which I have always dreaded) I decided to try ______ Paw Paw cream (which featured on tv about a month or so ago), its described as liquid gold. I was still wearing makeup during the week so I didnt see a speedy improvement until I stopped wearing makeup and read about apple cider vinegar which I use for my scalp but never thought to mix with baking soda & take internally. After my husband returned from being away all week he thought I was wearing makeup. My face looks fabulous after only 4 doses of ACV, using the pawpaw ointment twice daily, and moisturing with a sorbolene cream during the day to keep my face moisturised. Thanks to reading this site I will be able to wear makeup again next week.

I started having a rash and as it turns out it's psoriasis. Last week I started a combination of of both cider vinegar and coconut oil orally, per the site's recommendation. Well, there's a lot of different remedies there but upon reading them all these seemed likely to work.

Today I woke up to significantly clearer skin! I've heard that sunlight works too. (It's winter! ) Additionally, I applied the oil topically. Just wanted to give a shout of thanks! This condition is so gross It shut me down to the hopes of meeting someone to date. Of course more women have been flirting with me lately. Something about not being available...... ? What's the holistic approach to the opposite sex?

For Psoriasis and Associated Arthritis:

Apply topically, directly onto plaque, Apricot Kernel oil helps a lot!

Stronger treatment is to again, apply directly onto plaque, liquid micellized Vitamin A, 5000 IU in the form of "retinyl palmitate" or "vitamin A palmitate". On Amazon.com you could buy vitamin A palmitate, micellized. You might be able to find it at a health food store as well. Put a few drops directly on a small scaly spot at night and again in the morning to see if it helps. If it helps, try expanding to a bigger area.

For the arthritis and toe pain, I find avoiding ALL nightshade plants solves the problem! You'll find a lot of information about this online. Absolutely nothing with tomatoes, white potatoes, eggplant, and all peppers except black pepper. This means no paprika, no chili powder, no jalapenos, etc. Mayonnaise has paprika in it! Most processed foods have some, however slight, red or green pepper in them. I switched from tomato based sauces to Italian dressings and I mix plain yogurt with garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, salt and black pepper for a Mexican flavor.

I also don't eat any preservatives or anything artificial. Yep, I pretty much make all my own seasonings, sauces, dressings, desserts. I also try to stay alkaline. 1-2 Alfalfa capsules after too much grain/meat helps. Also, I got colitis (bleeding colon) from the Clindamycin antibiotic that didn't cure my urinary tract infection it was suppose to cure (but that's another story). I stopped eating gluten to help my colon heal and now I just continue to not eat gluten. Gluten may increase your symptoms ? you'd have to eliminate it from your diet and test that out for yourself.

The disease is mystifying doctors. They think it has to do with the immune system overreacting. Getting rid of the food triggers can help immensely! There is a whole class of "anti-nutrient" foods. If you find what I am suggesting helps tame your symptoms, you may want to go even further and google "anti-nutrients".

I would like to ask Kathy from Macon, GA the following question,

Kathy, there are so many different brands of systemic enzymes on the market. Could you please provide the name of the brand you used and any other information you may have? I have scalp psoriasis, and would very much like to try what worked for you. I've tried everything else, and nothing has worked for me. Thank you.

Psoriasis first started at a location on my leg where I had been bitten by a dog a few weeks earlier. It quickly spread to virtually all parts of my body. Over a 2 month period there were 9 doctor visits, 13 prescriptions, and 4 biopsies...none of which were helping! A Registered Nutritionist recommend I try drinking 2 Tbls. Organic, unfiltered (with the mother) Apple Cider Vinegar mixed into about a half cup of water twice a day. Additionally she suggested I begin using a good systemic enzyme. (Like digestive enzymes, but coated so they don't dissolve in your stomach) which I also took twice daily (following mfg's instructions).

The psoriasis began clearing almost immediately and was completely gone within a few weeks. Three years have now passed since the psoriasis episode with no recurrence of the problem. Hope this helps someone else because it sure was a nasty problem

Is your psoriasis still in remission? Did you stop using the ACV after you cleared or continue your daily dosage in order to maintain your clearing?

I stopped regular use of the ACV after the psoriasis cleared up; however, I still use it occasionally since it helps with so many conditions. After the psoriasis cleared I continued using enzymes (both digestive and systemic) because they free up so much of my body's energy that would ordinarily be used for digestion.... Energy that can now be used for keeping other things working well. It's now been about 5 yrs. Since I've had a problem with either psoriasis or eczema, both of which plagued me for nearly 20 yrs. prior to the ACV & enzyme fix.

Organic Apple Cider Vinegar changed my life. I have spent the last year and a half watching the psoriasis on my face get worse. I would wake up in the morning and have skin the size of a fingernail peeling off the areas around my nose. I tried using makeup to cover it but I'm a guy and it wasn't all that successful and the makeup seemed to aggravate the skin and make it worse. I thought I'd have to either take drugs that were known for causing serious side affects (cancer, organ damage, etc) or accept the fact that my face was going to become horrible to look at. Then someone told me about Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.

I went to the store and bought some organic, unfiltered, with mother, Apple Cider Vinegar. I began by putting a little in the cap and then using my fingers to apply it topically to the affected areas. I also began consuming 1 tablespoon each morning diluted in a small glass of water (it tastes very bad so I brush my teeth immedately afterward). Within 3 days I was noticing an improvement. Within two weeks it was all gone. It's been over a month now and I still do the same routine. I think I wll for the rest of my life. It supposedly has many other health benefits. I cannot yet attest to them but for psoriasis, it changed my life.

@ E from Florida. I read in your post that immediately after you took the ACV in water that you brushed your teeth to get rid of taste & just needed to warn you about possible enamel issues.

The ACV can weaken tooth enamel so, by all means, rinse your mouth out after drinking it, but please wait 1 hour before brushing your teeth. You don't want to harm the enamel by brushing it while it is in a weakened condition right after drinking the vinegar water.

Started 16 hours ago after my worst psoriasis break out in 15 years. I am a smoker and I do love beer. Eat healthy organic diet. Low meat intake, very low sugar, low salt, etc. Meditate often now a days, and in the middle of a move. Have not treated at all in maybe 5 years and only had some on my elbows, ears and scalp before the out break. Now it spread over my whole body except my face

So Far...

2 epsom salt baths
4 doses of ACV in filtered water
600 IU of Vitamin E

Not going to have a drink until it's gone and lightened up on the smoking.

I am watching the smallest spots disappear before my eyes right now. All scaling has dissappeared as did all raised skin. Will keep going with the above treatment. No doubt that the ACV is working because I have done the other things above many times in my life and never this fast of an improvement.

UPDATE... Day 6

I added Baking Soda to the ACV/Water and it seems to be making a difference. Also I have been applying the ACV topically once a day since I started and now I am starting to see a rapid improvement. The spots are starting to get smaller now.

Also, I have been testing my pH level as well. With all of the treatment I am doing plus eating like a rabbit, my pH is still somewhat low (mid-high 6 range) given all of the stress of the move and everything. I would like to get it in the mid-high 7 range and I think at that level I will start to see a fast improvement. Just a theory though

I have had 1 beer and still smoking a bit less than normal. Mixing with eCigs.

It does seem that certain parts of the body are reacting faster than others. I believe this has to do with how many (much) toxins have built up in those areas. The youngest spots are leaving first and the oldest spots are sticking around but starting to see progress.

Time for the official move now. Will update afterwards.

Just a one year update.

Baking Soda in water is magical. Hardly a half a teaspoon to each 20oz glass is all it takes. Wow does it clean your system but its worth the 2-3 weeks of discomfort.

Dead Sea Salt baths are also amazing. It seems as though it draws the chemicals and impurities straight out of your body that cause psoriasis.

Diet is everything. No Processed foods period. No Processed sugar. Red meat is really good but its not ideal.

I smoke cigarettes and drink beer(Stout is the way to go) frequently and there is no way that these two things are the cause.

I have noticed that there is a time delay on diet. When you eat something that is wrong, it takes time to filter to your skin surface. It depends on the magnitude of how awful it is for your system.

In the end, enjoy what you like in life but if you want healthy skin I have found that you counteract my pleasures with Baking Soda in water for every glass, Dead sea salts for quick elimination of psoriasis and eating well is the best remedy.

Too really crush an outbreak I found that I must change my lifestyle. 85% vegetables and fruits and 15% NON-red meat. Nuts and other things are all good.

Draw the chemicals and impurities out with Dead Sea Salt Baths and intake of Baking Soda in every glass of water as the best way.

I don't buy the stress thing. I do buy the alcohol thing however Stouts seem to be the most awesome with no worries.

Hope this all helps many of you. It's not you. It's what you input that creates the output.

It appears to me that a lot of the responses on this site and what people try all have to do with pH levels in some way. The comment under Baking Soda made things click for me. I went and looked up an alkaline food chart and it seems everything people try is with foods of ingredients from this chart. The question I have is whether or not anyone has figured out if there is a certain pH level of your body, or something of that nature that sparks psoriasis or not? Is there a range to be in and is there a way to test your own pH level? Maybe it is a different level for everyone based off of all of the comments and reponses. Thanks, Andrew

Dear Amazedshunt:

Yes, you can get an acid/alkaline test strips kit at many drug stores and you want to be slightly on the alkaline side normally. But when I find myself indulging in acid "stuff"... Coffee, tomatoes, chillis... You know... ALL the things I LOVE... Then I have to over alkalize for a few days to make up for my excesses. (The point is in answering your question, you will have to vary the alkalizing intake depending on what you are dealing with.)

To deal with big irritations you want to be on a continuous program if there is a chronic problem-which you say you have. I often use not only a diet devoid of acids, and use baking soda but also use pills that are helpful such as ones that say something like "ph basic" which will help bring the system back to slightly alkalized. I'd love to hear from people who use alkalized water to find their experience with that in healing experiences. I've thought about buying one of those units and maybe I will in the next year or so.

I am prone to an acidic system so (unfortunately) have lots of experience with this. I could wirte a book: "Living with an Acidic Body; Causes and cures"...

Hope this helped,

Dave

I've suffered from Psoriasis for about 3 years now. I have a patch of skin on my leg that is extremely dry, scaly, itchy and inflammed at times. I've tried soaking in Epsom Salt, it's helped somewhat. But recently I've been on a search for clean drinking water. In that search I've noticed that my drinking water has a pH of 5. 5. Since then I've used pinches of baking soda to bring the pH of my drinking water to 7.0. In a matter of about only 1 week my Psoriasis has improved drastically. It's much less dry, inflammation gone and the itch has completely gone away. It's still not completely healed but it's SOOO much better.

I'm currently drinking P----- Spring water. I'm still not done searching for the best drinking water yet. I don't know why the pH on this water is a 5.5. I retain the water I drink much better now, I used to pee it right out in minutes.

I'd love to know if this helps other people's Psoriasis.

I recently read in a local paper that a woman used banana peel on her Psoriasis. I have had two treatments and immediately saw results. I rub the inside of the peel on the affected area twice a day. The first reaction burned like nettle, but after the stinging stops the itching did as well. Now that I have used the peelings for two days it appears that the areas are less productive, and lighter in color. No ointment has worked this successfully, and I am 51 with psoriasis at my knees and elbow since I was 12.

I have had psoriasis on my feet for years, and at times of stress a patch appears on my right shin which remains for as long as the stress does, plus I get occasional small patches elsewhere that tend to clear up on their own. I also get it on my scalp. I first had the patch on my shin when I started university. It got larger over the 3 years and it remained for the duration of my course, clearing up after I left. I didn't have it again until I started my current management job, and I've now had it for nearly 3 years. I picked up a pot of Propolis a few weeks ago, and have been testing it on the shin. Though I've only been applying it occasionally, there is a marked improvement and it's starting to clear. This is the only product I'm using on it, after years of trying various pharmacutical and natural products with no success.

I tried the bee propolis on my scalp; I guess I misunderstood how to use it; its extremely sticky and stains. So I had huge globs of brown sticky stuff; it would not come off at all, not from my fingers or the sink or the countertop and certainly not from my scalp. it was like I had superglued my hair to my scalp. I wrote the company; they said they had no solution of how to get it off. Anyway, I finally am soaking it in hairspray/alcohol for an hour or so before I wash it and it is gradually coming out. I assume it should have been diluted; anyway, it doesn't seem to have helped the condition.

I would advise you to use virgin coconut oil it has been found to be an excellent natural treatment for relieving psoriasis. A common recommendation is to take 2 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil each day. It can either be consumed directly from the spoon, or you can mix it into a fruit smoothie, sautee vegetables with it, or use it as a replacement for butter when eating pancakes. Another option is to apply virgin coconut oil topically onto the affected area 3 times per day.

Note : Use virgin coconut oil extracted from coconut milk.

Aren't beets pickled in vinegar? It seems like vinegar is a common helpful substance. I have recently been diagnosed with psoriasis and I'm looking for ideas to help instead of using the high powered medicines suggested by the dermatologist. It seems since they don't knowing about psoriasis that it is risky to take the medicines.

The skin on the soles of my feet, palms of my hands and even my eyelids was splitting open along creases. I started taking Turmeric along with Biotin. In less than a week, everything was 80% better. My mother has psoriasis very badly on her back where she cannot reach to put psoriasis creams. She started turmeric with biotin and she doesn't itch at all, sores almost gone in less than a week.

I researched the Budwig Protocol after I read about on a yahoo group about 4 years ago. To help control my asthma AND terrible psoriasis. I consumed the foundation meal (flaxseed oil/cottage cheese - focc) religiously for 5 months. My psoriasis totally cleared and my asthma improved immensely. This diet, once you get used to it, helps many conditions but is used primarily for cancer. This is a "great anti-inflammatory diet."

Till this day, I eat it 3 to 4 times a week for breakfast. Be sure to follow the exact guidelines if you are on a quest to cure cancer. Also, be careful to stop consuming "focc" 3 to 4 days before any surgeries as it thins your blood nicely. I am a true believer in this diet as a "cancer preventative".

Blessings, Sofia
