If you have beginning stage toenail fungus this toenail fungus natural remedy can heal those unsightly yellow nails.
Pedicurist training in Europe prepared me for working with a podiatrist and I prepped my share of ugly, yellow toenails for treatment. It’s a widespread problem, as it is estimated that a quarter of the worldwide population suffers from some form of toenail fungus.
Toenail fungus affects the area of tissue under the nail and feeds off dead material like keratin. Which our nails are made of!
Add the right body environment, a body that is too acidic or deals with candida/yeast overgrowth, and you have a recipe for long term fungal infection.
Before you start taking internal medications for this ailment make sure to look at all your options, because prescription medications are very hard on your liver.
Many toenail fungus home remedies are too weak to make a difference (Vick’s Vapo-rub, apple cider vinegar) but it certainly won’t hurt your liver to try them and paying some close attention to your feet daily may make a difference!
Melaleuca and Oregano For Mild Toenail Fungus
Using essential oils is cheap, quick and safe. Providing, and I will say it a thousand times, you use therapeutic grade high quality oils. No pesticides, no chemicals, no fillers, no vague brands or labels.
Prep your toenails by carefully trimming away dead material and any corner of nail that has loosened from the nailbed. Clean as much debris from under the nails as possible. LET AIR GET TO IT ALL.
- Twice a day apply one drop of Melaleuca or Oregano oil (alternate), making sure it gets under and around the whole nail.
- Every two weeks give your nail a week off. Pure essential oils can be drying. Keep on filing away dead and dried up material. Be sure to use one file for this purpose only. ONYCHOMYCOSIS, or nail fungus, is definitely contagious.
Every toenail fungus natural remedy will keep you busy for a few months, because growing new healthy nails is a slow process.
Toenail fungus is tenacious. Get your feet out of sweaty shoes and socks whenever you can. Consider moisture wicking socks like hiking socks available at sporting good stores.
Fungus does not just show up in any body. It is opportunistic and most likely your body’s immune system is compromised. Over half of Americans age seventy are afflicted.
Are you eating too many sugars? Candidiasis, overgrowth of yeast, in the body seems to set ideal conditions for these kind of low level infections.
