Undecylenoyl glycine is a natural substance derived from sunflower and oat proteins. This is added to Fungus Fix for two reasons: this is a natural antibacterial which can help control any bacterial infections that may be commensal with the fungus; undecylenoyl glycine also helps to support the natural acidity of the skin, making it more difficult for secondary bacterial infections to begin.
My girlfriend is 20 and her pinky toe nail is starting to look almost a bit deformed..? like the base of the nail has sunken in and i dont know what to do about it and we don’t really have the money to go and get any expensive ingredients or to the doctors.. :c I’m not sure what to do.. can anyone help? the nail is thick and kinda greenish ? it’s weird..
My husband had the start of fungus on his big toe. It was getting thick and you could see the lines visibly in it. He kept putting Head and Shoulders shampoo on it when he washed his hair. It’s normal now after about three months of applying. He read that this shampoo has anti-fungal qualities (has zinc and pyrithione or ZPT) to rid hair of dandruff. I guess that applies to toes as well!

Cultured dairy or fermented foods (ideally organic and raw) — these are beneficial for replacing good bacteria in the gut since they provide probiotics. Probiotics help control yeast and also have numerous immune-enhancing effects. For other sources of probiotics, in addition to yogurt or kefir try cultured foods like kimchi, kombucha or sauerkraut.

I had fungus on my thumb nails and 1-2 other nails. I also had it on my large toenails. On the fingers, I kept a small bottle with a dropper screw top filled with apple cider vinegar. Every time I thought of it, I put a drop of vinegar (more on the fingers than the toes–convenience, lol) I kept the bottle by the computer, I would apply it several times a session, letting it go under the nail, and just air dry. I did also put it on my toenails, but somewhere during this time I started taking coconut oil in my coffee everyday. One day I noticed the fungus was gone. I have also put the coconut oil directly on the nail and rubbed it in, esp. during sandal time.

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.
I have had a problem with itchy, scaly feet and thick fungus ridden toenails on one foot for years. I think a lot of the home treatments didn’t work because I wasn’t doing them every single day. So, here’s what I did: one day I would do a foot soak of half vinegar half water for 10ish minutes, the next day I would do a half peroxide half water soak for 10ish minutes (always erring on the side of more water for each soak). I alternated days for two weeks and then occasionally afterwards, like, maybe 2-3 times a month I’d do one soak with either the vinegar OR peroxide. Occasionally I use coconut oil when my feet are dry, so I’m sure that helps, but it’s not consistent.

I’ve had toe nail fungus for 25+ years. I’ve never taken medicine or tried a natural remedy to cure it, I’ve just always lived with it. I went on a green juice cleanse for 28 days. Nothing but green juice, water, and coffee for four weeks (inspired by “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” on Netflix). I was looking to lose a few pounds and give my body a detox. 6 months later, my nails are almost completely clear. I figure another 2-3 months of growth and I will be able to cut away the remainder of my discolored nails. This happened purely by accident. Apparently, the fungus in your nails thrives from yeast and sugar in your everyday diet. Cut out those items, kill the fungus. No pills. No soaking. I ended up dropping 30 lbs in 28 days and as a bonus my nails are going to be ready for flip flops for the first summer in 25 years! Do some research about changing your diet to beat toenail fungus… It worked for me!
What is the best treatment for toenail fungus? Options include topical creams, oral medication, laser treatment, and surgical nail removal (avulsion). Of these, avulsion is the most effective, but needs to be done by a doctor. Creams and gels are the easiest and most convenient home treatment for nail fungus, provided that the formula can penetrate the nail.
Generally a nail fungal infection will start off as a white or yellow spot on the tip of the nail. As it begins to develop, the nail may become thickened, brittle/crumbly/ragged, change shape, become darker in color, or get dull. If the nail starts to separate from the nail bed, it is called onycholysis, which can be quite uncomfortable. Without treatment, toenail fungus can go on indefinitely. Even with treatment, it can occur on and off.
Funginix Antifungal Treatment comes in a nondescript medical bottle. However, the solution inside is much more impressive. This solution is made of a combination of the most popular treatments for toenail fungus on the market today, creating a unique formula. Funginix uses undecylenic acid to kill fungus as well as tea tree oil, camphor, lavender oil, and menthol to help heal the foot and treat symptoms. Funginix explains that its innovation isn’t a new ingredient, just simply a better mix of the most effective treatments.
First, mix 1 cup of your chosen vinegar with enough water to soak your feet in. Soak for 15 minutes, and then pat dry with paper towels. Follow this by adding several tablespoons of baking soda to enough water to soak your feet in, and soak for 15 minutes. Pat feet completely dry with paper towels. Do this twice a day. The idea is that the vinegar will kill off the fungus, while the baking soda will then inhibit the growth of more.
Baking soda is not fungicidal-that is, it does not kill the fungus. It is, however, fungistatic, which means it can prevent fungus from growing and spreading. The reason it acts like this is because it is alkaline-the opposite of acidic-and fungus is able to flourish when its environment is more acidic. It seems counter-intuitive then, that using vinegar to kill nail fungus would be a good idea, but vinegar is a fairly weak acid, and will help kill off the fungus without altering the Ph. of the environment in a harmful way.
Have the toe nail fungus with in grown nails I must dig out. Nothing worked for fungus or infections from in grown toes . I then started wetting the tops of my socks with tea tree oil and most has cleared up in my work boots where it used to get worse. The dead nail is not sore any more too. Just pink and healthy. Infections do not stand a chance that’s a big bonus.

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.

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.

To use Funginix, apply the viscous solution to the nail with a brush applicator and wipe away the excess with a cotton swab. Keep your feet dry while using Funginix for maximum effect. The solution will absorb in about five minutes and starts working quickly. For the best results, use Funginix consistently. Customers love this one-of-a-kind toenail fungus solution and post about its success in product reviews. 
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.
For Fungi Nail to work optimally, you should apply to clean, recently washed, dry feet twice each day. Apply with the included dual-angle brush to the nail and skin and wear a well-ventilated shoe. This ointment can also work on athlete's foot or ringworm and helps moisturize skin while it reduces dryness and kills fungus. Fungi Nail treats the symptoms as well as the cause.
