Oddly enough, apple cider vinegar has become popular as an alternative treatment for many ailments, both physical diseases and supposedly even schizophrenia. It has been suggested that apple cider vinegar could be used to ease the effects of quitting psychoactive medication. This is said to be because of how the digestive microbiology seems to have an effect on the mental health of an individual. However, there is little evidence to support this, and doctor Ken Duckworth does not recommend it as part of schizophrenia treatment. Medications like clozapine can be used to treat schizophrenia and omega-3’s have been linked to lower rates of mental illness.
