The apple cider vinegar is certainly a great recipe.

Let me add the curative qualities of Hydrocotyle Asiatica herb or Indian Pennywort. In the first place it is said to bestow longevity when taken for a prolonged period of time.

Hydrocotyle has proven to be a boon in the treatment of elephantiasis, otherwise known as filaria. The herb has no side effect and cures hypertrophy and induration of connective tissue. When there is no ulceration, it is a reputed cure for leprosy and lupus.

The irritable and agonising itching of vagina, leucorrhoea, ovarian and cervical pains are taken care of by Hydrocotyle.

It also cures psoriasis and itches, syphylitic and gonorrhoeal infections.Acne is effectively cured by this herb.

Take 2 to 4 leaves of the plant in the morning on empty stomach followed by a glass of water. If you can not arrange the green leaves, you can take the tincture (5 to 7 drops diluted in 1/2 cup of water) available with the homoepathic chemist which is equally good. A daily twice or thrice dosage is recommended. In normal health a single dose in the morning is enough to keep you fit. The herb or tincture is inexpensive.It is a highly serviceable herb and its importance should not be underestimated.

Try and see for yourself. I have personally experimented with this herb in a number of cases and seen its magical curative power.
