Claire, do you have any input on the salt remedy for nail fungus? I have nail fungus under on of my thumbnails and it has been totally resistant to any and all treatments I’ve tried. I think at some point the nail must have become slightly detached from the thumb and allowed water/moisture to get underneath the nail. We know how fungus loves moist areas. The rest is history! Thanks for any information you can provide.
While they may not seem connected, the health of your digestive system can have an impact on the growth of nail fungus. Healthy gut bacteria can help prevent the growth of fungi and microbes in the body; an imbalance of flora in the digestive system can lead to fungal overgrowth. Maintaining gut health can help minimize the spread of nail fungus and keep it from returning in the future.
Fungal nail infections can be difficult to treat. Talk with your doctor if self-care strategies and over-the-counter (nonprescription) products haven't helped. Treatment depends on the severity of your condition and the type of fungus causing it. It can take months to see results. And even if your nail condition improves, repeat infections are common.
Vicks Vapor Rub can do more than help you breathe easier when you have a cold – it can also eliminate nail fungus! The thymol, or oil of thyme, in Vicks Vapor Rub, has natural anti-fungal properties. Spreading it on affected areas can help disrupt the cell membranes of the fungus. While thyme oil has the same properties, Vicks is much easier to find in stores; in fact, you probably already have some in your medicine cabinet!

One of the biggest problems with this product is that it is not presently being manufactured, so the supply online is finite. Another problem is that it seems not to be effective for everyone who uses it, although the same could be said for any product. There is no information on the OPI website about Fungus Fix, either, as it is no longer being made.
The final step to removing fungal and yeast infections is taking supplements, such as the probiotic supplement that I mentioned above. A quality probiotic supplement will help you get rid of the yeast and candida in your system that’s truly causing your toenail fungus. I personally recommend a probiotic supplement that has at the very least 10+ strains of probiotics with at least 15 billion CFUs.
My husband has been suffering from awful toe fungus on both of his feet for years. We have searched high and low for something that would get rid of this naturally and after years, someone recommended we look at Neem. Skeptical at first, we did some research and found that the top Neem benefit is that it is anti fungal. We found that Neem Oil is great this way we can kill the fungus and moisturize at the same time.
