Foot Fungus Remedy

by Angela S.

November 2010

My husband has always had terrible feet. They are constantly cracking and splitting and his toenails look terrible. We have treated them with over the counter anti-fungals for years to no avail. We believed that it was palmoplantar psoriasis after not being able to clear it up with anti-fungals, but the doctor seemed to think it was fungal and wanted to put him on prescription oral antifungal medicine. I said absolutely not, there are too many side effects. So I set about to put together a salve for his feet. I came up with one that would cover all our bases since psoriasis of the feet is often mistaken for a fungal infection of the skin and nails. I made an infused oil of comfrey and burdock root. Then I made a salve with the oil and added several drops of tea tree oil and garlic essential oil. He smells like garlic bread, but his feet have never looked so good and his nails are beginning to grow out clear. I also added a cod liver oil supplement to his diet. It has worked beautifully!

Did You Know?

Unusually offensive body odor is often the result of toxins built up in the body, making their way out through the skin. Whether it's your feet, armpits or fecal matter, all such foul smells usually have the same root cause: excess toxins. Tackling such issues with an external remedy is usually, at best, a temporary fix. The use of Bentonite clay internally can flush out a wide variety of odor-causing toxins. A young lady from Florida recently shared how wonderful it is to be free of the offensive odor that had plagued her for some time. She thought it would never go away, but not long after she started consuming Bentonite clay, the body odor disappeared.
