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.

But the earlier you treat the nail infection, the more likely you are to cure it, explains, Joshua Zeichner, MD, a New York City–based board-certified dermatologist and director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center. “Treatment can take several months, even up to a year, as you need to wait for healthy nail to grow out, which is a slow process,” he says.

Toenail fungus, medically known as Onychomycosis, is a potentially embarrassing problem which can be difficult to treat. Although it may not work for everyone, you can use vinegar to help treat your mild to moderate case of toenail fungus. Additionally, support your treatment process by undertaking preventative care. However, it’s best to see your doctor if you aren’t sure if you have a fungal infection, your infection worsens, or you have diabetes.

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.    


Try using oil of oregano along with another essential oil called melaleuca, which is also known as tea tree oil. The uses of tea tree oil will astound you, including its ability to act as a natural antifungal agent. Use these two oils topically on your toenail fungus daily. I recommend three drops of oil of oregano and two drops of melaleuca applied directly on the toenail, four times a day, ideally.

Bear with me-I am about to get a little bit scientific here, but I find this to be an exciting way to combat fungus without using harsh chemicals. Medium chain fatty acids are almost miracles in how they work as natural fungicides. The fungal membrane is crucial to maintaining the “life” of the fungus, which is why many antifungal treatments target the fungal membrane. Fatty acids, such as the ones found abundantly in coconut oil, naturally insert themselves in the lipid (fat) layer of the fungal membrane and disturb it, leading eventually to cell disintegration and the ultimate destruction of the fungus (to put it in a nutshell.)


The fairly low price of OPI Fungus Fix could make it an attractive alternative to treating nail fungus were it not for the fact that you may not be able to get more if you need it. If you’re willing to take a chance on a limited available supply, and have not had much success with other products, then by all means, give it try. For those who worry that their nail fungus infection will not be cleared up quickly by Fungus Fix, you should probably look elsewhere for help.
Sounds like you were doing a candida cleanse. I’ve had great success doing a candida cleanse for chronic bronchitis; in the process of doing it my skin cleared up; migraines and PMS disappeared; and joint aches subsided. Everyone who knew me commented on who good I looked. I’ve been dealing with a toenail fungus for 10+ years and bad itching on the arch of my foot for a year now. Started a candida cleanse taking caprylic acid, probiotics and reducing my sugar and flour intake, and the foot itching started to subside and the rash began to clear up. When I forget to take my supplements, it flares up. Also used oregano oil on my toenail and it started to grow in normally = 3 drops of oregano oil mixed with 1 teaspoon olive oil applied daily for three weeks.

Hematomas under the nail bed are large red, brownish, or black spots that occur after a trauma such as slamming a toe in a door or hitting a finger with a hammer. Caused by burst blood vessels under the nail, hematomas will grow out with the nail. However, if a red or black spot occurs under the nail without trauma, it is important to have it checked out by a doctor as it may be melanoma.

2. Apple cider vinegar also works well as a treatment. It is mildly acidic and can help prevent toenail fungus from spreading. It also has antibacterial properties, allowing it to kill fungus while restoring the skin’s pH levels. Remember, toenail fungus could be caused by abnormal pH levels of the skin. The vinegar is also beneficial since its mildly acidic nature not only kills bacteria and fungus, but also prevents it from spreading and causing further problems. Mix equal parts of apple cider vinegar with water. Then soak your toenail in the solution for about 30 minutes as a daily treatment. After this time, dry your toenail thoroughly. Continue this treatment for a few weeks or until the fungus is resolved.

You might consider a “water-based” nail polish, such as Acquarella. It’s “halaal,” which, to Muslim women, means it allows water to pass through and reach the nail. I’m not sure if all water-based polishes are considered halaal, but I know Acquarella is. I don’t know if this would mean that any “treatments” would still get through to the nail, but I do know this polish allows your nails to breathe at least.
Infected nails are usually thicker than normal and could be warped or oddly shaped. They can break easily. Nails with fungus might look yellow. Sometimes a white dot shows up on the nail and then gets bigger. When fungus builds up under your nail, it can loosen and even separate the nail from the bed. The fungus can also spread to the skin around your nail.
But the earlier you treat the nail infection, the more likely you are to cure it, explains, Joshua Zeichner, MD, a New York City–based board-certified dermatologist and director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center. “Treatment can take several months, even up to a year, as you need to wait for healthy nail to grow out, which is a slow process,” he says.
Once it takes hold, the bacteria and yeast thrive off of sugar molecules entering the digestive tract through the foods you eat. That’s exactly why you need to eliminate the underlying cause, which is likely stemming from your diet (and possibly also your lifestyle to some degree). This will help ultimately restore your body’s pH balance, improve your immune function and boost the presence of good bacteria in your gut.
Toenail fungus is an infection that gets in through cracks in your nail or cuts in your skin. It can make your toenail change color or get thicker. It can also hurt. Because toes are often warm and damp, fungus grows well there. Different kinds of fungi and sometimes yeast affect different parts of the nail. Left untreated, an infection could spread to other toenails, skin, or even your fingernails.

Because you’re removing the majority of sugars and grains from your diet, in addition to fiber, I also recommend increasing the amount of protein-rich foods you’re eating. Make sure to buy grass-fed meat; organic, cage-free eggs or poultry; raw, unpasteurized dairy; and wild-caught fish — this is key for obtaining enough protein while also reducing toxins in your diet.

Try Cinnamon Leaf Oil as is a very powerful anti-fungal and dries out the nail nicely. In my case it helped to flake off the nail that was full of fungus until a new nail started to grow. Don’t know how I lived with it for so long. Apple Cider vinegar was too mild for me. Apparently to prevent it from coming back you really have to drink Cinnamon Tea (not Cassia Cinnamon which can damage your liver). I discovered I was eating all the wrong foods and my whole body was infested with a Candida overgrowth. Drinking the Cinnamon tea really cleaned up my system. I don’t eat too much sweets or dairy anymore, which seems to be the key. Oh yeah one more thing you really have to keep your toes dry and clean. I threw all my shoes and socks away, but well worth it for the results. If you want fast results, you really have to go with Cinnamon Leaf Oil. Since then I have been using the Cinnamon oil all around the house to disinfect and get rid of bad smells and mold in the bathroom. This oil is fantastic.
