I have a comment on the baking soda and acv remedy. You mentioned that baking soda is alkaline and helps to resist fungus growth an acv is acidic, which the funguses normal environment, but helps maintain the ph. However, I’ve read that fungus thrives in alkaline environments and the ph of acv is weaker acid and safe for skin, but the reason it works is because it will make it an uninviting environment for the fungus to live- and in turn, is killed off. Do you have any information that I am missing in this? It seems baking soda may not be the best. Thanks.
Thank for the information I’m sure going to try the one for toenail fungus,I recently developed the fungus after gallbladder suegery. also after many hours of research about stomach problems and what other issues are associated with stomach peoblems .and having the fungus is a sign of stomach problems,along with others stuff too. thank you for tip.

REPLACE: Simply switching to a natural diet of healthy, whole, unprocessed and fresh foods can go a long way toward restoring your gut health. Repair the health of your digestive system with lots of green leafy lettuces and plenty of fresh veggies. Balance your macronutrients with added healthy fats and healthy proteins. The natural fiber found in fresh veggies will help to strengthen the health of the digestive system and restore bacterial balance. The benefits of fats and proteins are too numerous to mention, but when it comes to yeast infections, these macronutrients help to reduce cravings for sugar and keep you feeling fuller for longer periods.
What triggers candida in the first place? This overgrowth of yeast can develop from a number of factors, including antibiotic use, poor digestion, low immune system function, a high sugar and grain diet, stress or hormonal changes. All these create an acidic environment that encourages yeast growth and the presence of candida. Many people opt for over-the-counter anti-fungal creams or even medications, but they only treat the symptoms, not the environment that allows candida to flourish.
Topical antifungal creams, oral antifungal prescriptions, and, in severe cases, removal of the nail. However, these medications and procedures can have serious side effects including pain, fever, diarrhea, fatigue, swelling, difficulty breathing, weight gain, liver damage, heart problems, and more. Hoping to avoid health consequences, more and more patients are looking for ways to treat their nail fungus naturally at home.
REMOVE: Fungal infections can be starved out by removing its preferred food source – sugar. Added sugars can be found in nearly all processed foods. (Check out this Rebuilding Wellness post on 60 Ways Sugar Hides in Labels.) Natural sugars are also found in dairy, grains, and fruits. Begin by removing processed sugars from the diet and limiting natural sugars as best you can. By removing these, the fungus is deprived of what it needs to grow.
Kelly, I am worried about the prescription, and I know which one you are talking about. There are serious concerns about liver damage. I would never take it, ever. Also, the 85% success rate is highly exaggerated. Tea tree oil and coconut oil mixed together will absolutely cure it but there is one huge catch: you have to apply it every single day without fail, and you have to try to keep your feet dry and uncovered as much as possible. It is very simple but takes your best effort to stick to it. Look up ‘nail fungus diary’ and you’ll see how bad my nails were and how much better they’ve gotten. Toenail fungus can be cured safely and naturally. I also used something called Kerasal Nail which isn’t all natural but I think you’d be just fine without it.
With natural antiseptic and antifungal properties, castor oil and tea tree oil for nail fungus have been used for centuries. Undiluted tea tree oil can be applied directly to affected nails to help kill fungus; ten minutes after application, gently massage the oil into the nail using an old toothbrush. When applied to surrounding skin, tea tree oil is best diluted with a carrier oil such as coconut or olive oil. Continue to use daily until several weeks after new nail growth has occurred to prevent the fungus from returning.
