Psoriasis has a host of symptoms and triggers. The pharmaceutical treatments for psoriasis range from mild to severe and all come with risks of side effects also ranging from mild to severe. If you are looking for a natural psoriasis treatment to avoid those side effects look no further. Use apple cider vinegar for your psoriasis and you will get extended relief with out the side effects. Here are 3 ways it can work for you:

  1. Promote a Healthy Immune System
  2. Help Expel Body Toxins that Cause Psoriasis
  3. Get More Energy With Apple Cider Vinegar

1. Promote a Healthy Immune System with ACV

Though psoriasis manifests itself on your skin, don't forget that it is in fact an auto-immune disease. Once you get your symptoms under control, you will find that the best way to stop psoriasis from attacking you is by helping your body support a healthy immune system.


Psoriasis is frequently referred to as a "T-cell mediated disease." T cells are a type of immune system cell, or white blood cell.

A normal immune system protects the body against "invaders" by destroying bacteria, viruses and other harmful, foreign proteins. With your psoriasis, your immune system "misfires" and inappropriately causes inflammation and an accelerated growth of skin cells.

Your skin cells reproduce too quickly and the skin (and the joints in some people) becomes inflamed. Your body opens and closes immune reactions through co-stimulatory pathways. They are like the locks and keys that start and stop immune system reactions.

There are many factors at work in apple cider vinegar that may be responsible for the boost in immune system health. Chock full of vitamins and minerals, apple cider vinegar helps provide vital nutrients that the body may be missing. Raw apple cider vinegar contains anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties that can work as immune protectors against a wide variety of germs.

2. Help Expel Body Toxins that Cause Psoriasis

A powerful antioxidant, apple cider vinegar helps prevent triggers from toxic build up in your system. Toxins are everywhere in ever increasing amounts. Because of the pollution in the air and chemicals in your water and food your body is not able to process all the toxins you take in. You body has natural ways of expelling toxins but it can't keep up and many of these toxins come out through your skin as a result. The tannins in ACV will give your system a needed boost.

The build up of toxins in your body has a huge impact on your psoriasis. Organs such as your colon and kidneys are responsible for helping your body flush toxins, but so does your skin. Toxins being released through your skin can trigger your psoriasis. Also, when there is a build up of toxins in your body, your immune system does not function properly.

Your body has many natural ways of eliminating toxins from your body, but it can't keep up with the pollutants present in today's world. From the air you breathe to the water you drink, there are more toxins being introduced to your body than ever before. It is no wonder why your body can't keep up. Try apple cider vinegar for psoriasis detox program.

Next to weight loss, detoxification is one of the most popular reasons why people turn to raw apple cider vinegar. For hundreds of years, people have relied on apple cider vinegar and its cleansing properties to remove toxins and impurities form the body. It is believed that apple cider vinegar assists with detoxification by aiding circulation and boosting the liver's ability to purge toxins.
