Is filtered apple cider vinegar beneficial for health? Can it be used for the same health benefits as unfiltered?

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

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.

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

What are the health benefits of cold-pressed organic unbleached coconut oil?
