I first heard of ACV last summer when my sister-in-law suggested that my wife and I soak our feet in a concoction of ACV and Listerine. My wife tried it for several weeks, but I made her stop because the house was beginning to smell like used shoe - literally - it stunk like a dirty shoe. She disagreed with me, until she walked into the house one day and realized that I was right.
What Seth linked to today was about toenail fungus and what to do to cure it. ACV was the solution. However, I didn't see any posts or comments that ACV had to be mixed with Listerine. Some people said that by simply putting ACV on a q-tip and applying it to the nails, that that would cure the fungus. But the comment that caught my eyes was the one advocating the ingestion of ACV.
One person said that by ingesting ACV - 2 teaspoons twice daily - that their fungus has gone away. Upon further reading of the site, it suggests drinking 2 teaspoons of ACV diluted with 16 oz. of water per day, that one would lose weight.
Therefore, having had a severe toenail fungus problem as well as striving to lose weight, I plan on adding ACV to my diet. To start off, I think I'll try 2 teaspoons with 16 oz. of water twice daily - once in the morning and once at night.
Below are pictures of what my toenails look like today.
