Nail fungus is a condition that affects people of all ages, both men and women, and up to 8% of the population. It occurs on the fingernails and toe nails, however,as we tend to cover up our feet more, the condition can go unnoticed for longer, making the infection more serious. Luckily, there are many ways to get rid it, the best being natural remedies, designed to treat infections without the use of harmful chemicals, and produce healthy, shiny nails and skin. Before we look at the different types of cures, let’s ask the question.
What is Nail Fungus?
Demartophytic Onychomycosis is a common disease of the nails. It doesn’t usually inflict much pain or discomfort to the sufferer, however it can cause both toe nails and fingernails to become infected, discolored and cloudy. Nails can often turn grey, yellow, green or even black when infected. the nail also begins to deteriorate, becoming flaky and in extreme cases it can separate from the nail bed. It can be especially embarrassing if the fungus spreads to the fingernails, because of the unsightly nature of the infection.
So what is the best Toe-Nail Fungus Treatment?
Treating the disease can take a long time, sometimes up to a year. Natural, homeopathic cures reduce your exposure to harsh synthetic chemicals found in some over the counter nail fungus remedies. the main two types of cure are called oral and topical. Oral treatments are anti-fungal medicines taken by mouth. Oral cures fight the infection via the bloodstream, whilst topical treatments are applied via to the nail itself, via a lotion or oil.
The best homeopathic cures are natural oils. there are many different types of oil including:
- tea tree oil
- orange oil
- orgegano oil
These oils can also be blended to optimize their homeopathic properties. If you apply the treatment with a brush each day, in a few weeks the natural oil treatment starts to kill the fungus. the toenail and surrounding skin will regain it’s previous healthy shine until the fungus is no more.
