High liver emzymes ALT 64 &. Ast 63. I have been taking virgin coconut oil 3 table spoon per day and apple cider vinegar. Never had high emzymes.

Many causes: Elevated liver enzymes can have many causes- acute or chronic viruses, side effects of drugs, alcohol, environmental toxins and (most commonly) nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. I know of no evidence that coconut oil or apple cider vinegar raises liver enzymes, though 3 tbsp a day of coconut oil is a lot. See you doc to evaluate. See http://www. Aafp.

Can apple cider vinegar cure fatty liver?

Can apple cider vinegar cure fatty liver?

No: The fact that apple cider vinegar is promoted as being good for everything invites an obvious conclusion. It's natural, it tastes bad, and it's not patentable -- all qualities that make it perfect thing to sell to folks seeking a "natural remedy". If you're interested in supplements, get with an evidence-based holist. Fatty liver is serious and I wish you the best in managing it. ...Read more

Is it true that you can use both tea tree oil and apple cider vinegar to treat molluscum?

Unsure: There are many reports (especially on the internet on non-peer/doctor reviewed sites) of people trying apple cider vinegar and tea tree oil for molluscum with reports of positive results but, as far as I know, no controlled studies proving profound effectiveness have been done. However, I am not completely up on the literature and so can't say this for certain. ...Read more

What are your thoughts on coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, and tumeric as cancer fighting supplements?

Not much data: I try to be open-minded, and I read about complementary therapies. There's very little good research to say these are effective. Exercise, lowering your fat intake, lowering your alcohol intake, and not smoking are far more effective ways to prevent cancer. ...Read more

What's the most effective an FAST way to cure ringworm? Apple cider vinegar? Tea tree oil? Garlic?

Real antifungal: Tolaftate is available without a prescription. Terbinafine topical is also good. I'd prefer to see you use a topical agent rather than taking medication systemically whenever possible. These should be effective but it may take a few weeks. Apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, and garlic are promoted on "natural healing" sites for everything -- trying them would be your business. Best wishes. ...Read more

What's better for head lice and nits: apple cider vinegar vs. Tea tree oil?

Neither: Nits are the eggs of head lice, so you are right to seek a treatment that kills both. Vinegar and oil tend to fail. Pesticides can be toxic. We recommend harmless interventions, like forming a silicon shell on the head with applications such as licemd. ...Read more

Have a very dry scalp. Used everything from sulfur shampoo, to tea tree oil, to apple cider vinegar (looked online for solutions).doesnt seem to help.

Dry scalp: Prevent dryness (don't wash hair too often). A primary doctor or dermatologist can look for psoriasis, eczema, or fungal infections if worrisome scalp symptoms. If checking for fungal infections, the dermatologist may take hair samples to culture. Doctors may also try some cortisone or Kenalog (triamcinolone) sprays to counteract dryness. Some patients put olive oil on the scalp for a while, before washing. ...Read more

Can u use castor oil in yur eye for dry eyes? Will apple cider vinegar disolve a pterygium, if not what can u do to shrink a pterygium?

No & No. DON'T DO: THIS! While castor oil is edible and can be used cautiously on the skin, it should never be put directly in the eyes. Ditto with other edible substances including apple cider vinegar. If the pterygium causes discomfort or interferes with you field of vision, contact an Ophthalmologist. I know that it can take some time to see an eye doctor (MD or DO) but don't be tempted to self treat. ...Read more

I have nasal polyps and don't want the surgery. Are there natural remedies or other ways to reduce them? Apple cider vinegar, castor oil. Others??

Probably not: However daily saline irrigation may reduce the risk for sinusitis. Nasal steroid may work sometimes. It is important that you consult an allergist to find out the cause for the polyps first. I know of no natural remedy to get rid of nasal polyps otherwise. ...Read more

To treat bv, does bathing in warm water mixed with apple cider vinegar and tea tree oil treat cure the infection? Any suggestions?

Antibiotics v yogurt: Bacterial vaginosis is an imbalance in vaginal bacteria. Standard treatment is antibiotics, not bathing as described so go see family doc or gynecologist. There is some evidence that eating yogurt w/lactobacilli might help restore balance but studies aren't definitive. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic.

Will lavender or rosemary oil help treat nail fungus? Have already tried apple cider vinegar, listerine, coconut and tea tree oil

Not usually.: Toenail fungus is very common, and unfortunately very difficult to cure 100%. We can test the nail to see if it is a callused or traumatized nail or if it is indeed fungus, and from there you have several options: topical or oral antifungal medications, laser nail treatment, or removal of the nail in severe cases. See your doctor to talk about which treatment is right for you. ...Read more

Is it safe to take a multivitamin, probiotic, fish oil omega-3 supplement, apple cider vinegar, and psyllium husk for fiber together daily?

Is it safe to take a multivitamin, probiotic, fish oil omega-3 supplement, apple cider vinegar, and psyllium husk for fiber together daily?

Yes: These are safe though I wouldn't take them all at once. I advise the multivitamin after breakfast, the probiotic at the start of a meal, the fish oil after lunch or dinner, apple cider vinegar in water separate from meals and the psyllium at bedtime.
Some multivitamins are far better than others- see https://drrandybaker. Com/2012/11/

Are you lost?: Sorry, but since this is a traditional medical site this sort of treatment will not be as recognized as it may on others. But we are open-minded. I personally find it very helpful for heartburn w/ a pinch of baking soda. This is symptom relief - not 'health'. Read online and try it for your concern. It's probably safe for most 'healthy' adults. ...Read more
