WHY CAN APPLE CIDER VINEGAR CURE FUNGI?
Apple cider vinegar can be used as a tonic for our overall health. It contains alkalizing properties so the pH of our body is less acidic. It is also full of antiseptic and antimicrobial properties.
Apple cider vinegar has the ability to cure the fungus on the nails internally, but also externally.
First, soak your toes in some apple cider vinegar for a while.
Then, cut the infected nails.
After that, you can soak your toes in some apple cider vinegar at least twice a day.
Optional: you can also apply a mixture of lavender oil and tea tree oil at night.
Dilute some apple cider vinegar like this:
- 16 ounces of water
- 2 teaspoons of unpasteurized apple cider vinegar
Combine these 2 ingredients into a bowl. Refrigerate it. Drink it instead of water when you feel thirsty. It’s especially good for people who want to be on an alkalizing diet.
