Toenail Fungus

 

A fungal nail infection occurs from the overgrowth of fungi in, under or on the nail. Fungi thrive in warm, moist environments, so this type of environment can cause them to overpopulate. The same fungi that cause jock itch, athletes foot, and ring worm can cause nail infections. Solutions to use on toe fungus: Mix one part white vinegar with 2 parts warm water. Soak the affected are in the solution for 10-15 mins. Rinse & dry thoroughly. Recommendation of twice daily until fungus is gone. Killing the fungus naturally: Try using essential oils oregeno and melaleuca (aka tea tree). The combination acts as an antifungal agent. Often times toe fungus can be related to an overgrowth of Candida.

Many people are curious about natural toenail fungus treatment, as this is an issue many struggle with. Very few are aware that toenail fungus symptoms can actually be a sign of Candida virus or yeast within your system. “onychomycosis” or tinea unguium is the name for the type of infection that cause fungi to appear under, around or on the nail. Dietary changes/supplements and essential oils can eliminate the root cause of the fungus. (information provided by Dr. Axe Food is Medicine)
