6 Potent Natural Remedies for Pemphigus Vulgaris...

by Diane


Do you have any useful home remedies for pemphigus vulgaris, a skin blistering disease of the skin and mouth?


Hello Diane, and thanks for your question regarding natural remedies for treating pemphigus vulgaris (PV).

For those who don't know, pemphigus vulgaris is a rare auto-immune disease that causes severe blistering of the skin and mucous membrane lining of the mouth, nose, throat and genitals. These blisters have thin roofs and break easily, leaving raw areas (erosions) that can be large and extremely painful. Thankfully, you can successfully treat, and possibly even cure this awful health condition using natural remedies.

Here's 6 of the best available...

Home Remedy for Pemphigus Vulgaris #1... Borax: This is the most powerful. Borax contains the trace mineral boron, and a boron deficiency is one of the root causes of all auto-immune diseases. If you regularly suffer from candida (yeast infections) then this is another big reason why you definitely should consider the borax remedy. Take the time to read this article in full... The Borax Conspiracy, paying particular attention to the "Fungi and Fluoride" section. If you suffer from any of the health conditions listed in this article (along with pemphigus vulgaris of course) then this is even more reason to follow this outstanding protocol. And yes, you can actually buy high grade (and safe) borax powder. Here's the best one on the market at the moment... All Natural Sodium Borate.

Natural Remedy for Pemphigus Vulgaris #2... Fish Oil and Coconut Oil: Fish oil and coconut oil contain fatty acids which significantly reduce inflammation throughout the body. Coconut oil is also a very potent anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral agent. These powerful benefits make both fish oil and coconut oil supplementation essential for all PV sufferers. Find yourself a good quality (and mercury tested) fish oil supplement and take a total of 9,000 milligrams per day (yes that much) in divided doses. Also purchase a tub of organic virgin coconut oil and take 4-6 tablespoons per day in divided doses. You can also rub some coconut oil on the affected areas/lesions to help speed up recovery and healing.

Natural Treatment for Pemphigus Vulgaris #3... Vitamin D: One of vitamin D's main benefits is it regulates your body’s ability to fight infection, including chronic inflammation and autoimmune disorders. You need a minimum of 5,000 IU (international units) of vitamin D per day according to world-renowned vitamin D expert, Dr Cedric Garland. So be sure to get yourself 30 minutes of uninterrupted sun exposure every day (especially on the hands and face), along with taking a good quality vitamin D3 supplement. Remember, 5,000 IU a day is the minimum!

Natural Cure for Pemphigus Vulgaris #4... Vitamin C: Vitamin C is essential for building up the immune system. And contrary to popular belief, having a strong immune system is actually crucial for the successful treatment of autoimmune diseases. Vitamin C helps to rebalance the immune system and restore its natural function. Supporting the general function of the immune system helps to reduce the body's disease response and relieve autoimmune disorders. You can buy vitamin C supplements from just about anywhere. Take around 2,000 mg's a day for best results.

Home Remedy for Pemphigus Vulgaris #5... Aloe Vera: Aloe vera gel or oil is excellent for healing the lesions caused from PV. It's also very soothing and relieving on the skin. Find yourself a 100% natural aloe vera gel or oil and gently apply twice daily. Remember though, always test on a small area first just be sure your body doesn't have a reaction to it.

Natural Remedy for Pemphigus Vulgaris #6... Eat Healthy: This one speaks for itself. Eating refined and processed foods and junk food will do absolutely nothing to help your pemphigus vulgaris. They will, however, increase inflammation and make your condition much worse! So be sure to eat plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and seeds every day and drink plenty of clean, filtered water. Probiotics (healthy gut bacteria) are also crucial for reversing autoimmune diseases so make sure you take a good quality probiotic supplement and start culturing your own "probiotic rich" foods such as sauerkraut, kefir, yogurt and kombucha.

In addition, try and do some light, moderate exercise for 30-40 minutes a day, 4-6 times a week to further build and enhance the immune system. Your body will definitely thank you for it!

So I hope these tips and remedies help you Diane.

Good luck and all the best to you,

Pemphigus Vulgaris Treatment
by: Sue Bishop

Hi Troy,
Are you aware that before the use of prednisolone and other immunosuppressants between 75% and 90% of people with pv died within a year?
I believe that there is a place for supplements and other alternative health care for pv sufferers, but your advice is dangerous. We would all prefer a natural and safe treatment to the drugs we are offered. The sad fact is that, without them, most of us would have died or be horribly ill.
Anyone relying solely on treatments like the ones you suggest is in danger of becoming very seriously ill and will then end up having more radical treatment and possibly failing to recover.
If you still feel that your proposed treatments could result in a cure, please publish the evidence. I am sure that if it is convincing, we will all stop taking drugs and our dermatologists will cheer!
If not, please do not offer false hope to people who are suffering too much already.

Hi Sue, and thanks for your thoughts. A healthy scepticism with any remedy or treatment is a good thing.

Firstly, in the article I never said that you should throw away your medication, quit cold turkey, and start using these remedies instead. All of these remedies can be safely used in conjunction with pharmaceutical medications. We also say to people and reiterate in many of our articles (and on our "about us" page and disclaimer policy page) that you should ALWAYS work in conjunction with a naturopath or health care expert when it comes to using or considering any natural remedies or in regards to any health problem.

The remedies listed above were taken from and compiled from this article on autoimmune diseases and proposed remedies... Natural Cures for Autoimmune Diseases - EarthClinic.com.

Hope this helps to clarify your concerns Sue.

All the best to you.

More about treatment for pemphigus vulgaris
by: Sue Bishop

Thank you for your reply, Troy. You did claim that these treatments could possibly cure PV. If you know of anyone who has been cured in this way, I and other PV sufferers would genuinely like to know.
Your suggestion of 30 minutes in the sun is worrying. PV can cause thinning of the skin; treatments for PV can cause thinning of the skin. We are at increased risk of skin cancer and are generally advised to stay out of the sun and to use a high factor sunscreen.
Having said all of this, I appreciate your openness in showing my post and in replying. If you want to develop a truly holistic approach to treating PV, and I assure you, there are many of us who would really appreciate more work on this, I suggest you get in touch with the International Pemphigus and Pemphigoid Foundation.

Hi Sue. Firstly, I will certainly look into the International Pemphigus and Pemphigoid Foundation. Now with the sun exposure and vitamin D, yes you are right and it should have read low heat sun exposure. So basically medium level uv rays not "middle of summer" rays. That's why vitamin D supplements are still the best and safest option. I would caution using high factor commercial sunscreens though. These products are full of toxic chemicals that are absorbed directly through the pores of the skin into the bloodstream, poisoning the blood. A natural sunscreen would be a much better alternative.

As far as someone possibly being cured using these remedies, the theory (and yes it's still a theory and hasn't been proven) is that with all autoimmune diseases and inflammation within the body (auto-immune diseases are classed as inflammation induced disorders) building up the immune system and detoxifying the body is paramount. Even Dr Joseph Mercola and Dr David Marquis agree with this theory... Inflammation Triggers and Diseases. And that's what these 6 tips and remedies are designed to help with. Anyone with pemphigus vulgaris can also safely use these in conjunction with whatever conventional treatments they are currently using. If their symptoms didn't (at the very least) significantly improve I would be very surprised.

All the best to you Sue!

Are Fluoroquinolone Drugs Associated With PV?
by: SC

I'm wondering if there's a connection between the administration of fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics (Cipro, Levoquine, etc) and the incidence of Pemphigus vulgaris? Pemphigus seems similar to Stevens-Johnson's syndrome in expression. Stevens-Johnson's syndrome occurs in some people after taking these antibiotics.
I have a friend whose immune system was weak after she was recovering from Lymphoma. Her Dr gave her Cipro. Within 2 weeks she started developing Pemphigus. It covered her body, and although it's abated somewhat, it's now in her lungs. She is struggling to breathe even though her O2 level is good.

Fluoroquinolone Drugs are incredibly bad and should not even be available in my opinion. The harmful side effects and the damage they do to the human body are shocking. Back in 2013, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a strong warning that fluoroquinolone antibiotics can cause permanent peripheral neuropathy. They also lower the body's immune system (obliterate it really) and cause oxidative injury and cellular death, which would be the likely reason why your friend developed PV after taking Cipro. Low immunity and immunity malfunction are the main factors associated with Pemphigus vulgaris.

This article on the dangers of fluoroquinolone antibiotics by Dr Joseph Mercola is definitely worth the read... Bitter Pill: The Dangerous Side Effects of Fluoridated Antibiotics.

Agree with Sue
by: Anonymous

I agree totally with Sue, being diagnosed with PV myself. I do follow all of your suggestions. I do not ingest the amount of coconut oil you suggest as it is high in calories - 200 per tablespoon. I continue to research in the hopes of finding more good information.

Traditional Ayurvedic medicine also offers some worthy treatments for Pemphigus Vulgaris. This article is informative and worth the read... Pemphigus Vulgaris Treatment - Ayurvedic.

Hope it helps. :)

Borax helped me - almost immediate improvement
by: Anonymous

Tried borax for the first time last night after reading this in my desperate state & constant pain from pemphlighoids in my throat, mouth and lungs. I've had SLE for 26 years & am having IvIg three days a month due to pemphligiods. My overall health is slowly improving but not the pain in my throat. So I decided to make a mouth wash and gargle the borax. The relief was almost instant! OMG I thought! I then made up a mix in a litre of water and then diluted somewhat and drank it. Had strange tummy rumblings for a while but that settled quite well. Fell asleep on the couch and slept 6 hours straight. I thought that was amazing as I've not had such unbroken sleep in years! Best of all I woke up pain free and was able to swallow without pain for the first time in 5 years. Thank You! I shall definitely continue with the Borax.

Does this work for IGA pemphigus?

Feb 27, 2017
by: Troy (Admin)

Don't know to be honest. We haven't heard from anyone who has tried this protocol for IGA pemphigus? You could certainly give it a go and see. There is no harm. All of these remedies are perfectly safe to use.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

PV Wounds Healing Treatment
by: Anonymous

Can anyone please tell me how can I heal the wounds of PV. They are very painful and its almost 2 months since I first started suffering from PV. I am using Fuciderm and Fucicort to heal the wounds but these are not effective.

Apr 24, 2017
by: Troy

Along with using the recommendations listed above to help heal the sores, 100% aloe vera gel is extremely effective for healing PV wounds. Other topical remedies such as apple cider vinegar, alum powder and hydrogen peroxide are also highly effective. You can read more about these in this article...
