A Home Remedy for Seborrheic Keratosis That Works A Treat!
What is a good natural remedy to remove the beginnings of a seborrheic keratosis (age spot) on the temple area of the forehead? I'm 65 and just beginning to get these (one is about the diameter of a pencil eraser).
Hello, and thank you for your question regarding a natural way to get rid of age spots.
Firstly, to successfully get rid of a seborrheic keratosis (and prevent more from occurring), you need a combination of internal and external remedies.
Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is definitely the number one choice. It not only works as an external remover, it's also a very powerful internal cleanser.
To use as an external remover simply use a cotton swab dipped in apple cider vinegar and dab it on the spot for a couple of minutes. Do this 3 times a day and you will find that in around 8 weeks the age spot will be gone.
For internal use, mix 2 tablespoons (30 ml's) in a glass of warm filtered water (add a small amount of natural honey for taste if you need to). Drink this concoction 2-3 times daily, 10 minutes before food.
When it comes to purchasing your ACV
, only ever buy the raw organic apple cider vinegar that contains the "mother" apple (it will tell you
on the bottle). Do not buy processed ACV's as these won't work anywhere near as well. If you struggle with the taste of the ACV, you can now purchase apple cider vinegar capsules, which are much easier to take.
It's also interesting to note that one of the main causes of seborrheic keratosis is yeast infections and pathogen overload. It's therefore a good idea to give yourself a yeast fungus and parasite cleanse (you'll also feel much better afterwards and have loads more energy). Have a read of our article on natural ways to rid yourself of yeast infections and be sure to follow the recommendations... Natural Remedies for Yeast Infections.
In addition, age spots and liver spots can also be a sign of rancid fat accumulating in the body. Consuming coconut oil (2-3 tablespoons a day) and taking a good quality fish oil or krill oil supplement is a terrific way to get rid of, and prevent, toxic rancid fat from accumulating in the body. Serrapeptase
(a powerful protein destroying enzyme that comes from silk worms) is also extremely effective for removing age spots, liver spots, warts and seborrheic keratosis's as well.
So hopefully these tips help you out.
Good luck with it and all the best to you!
