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!

Thank you! I just received my order of herbs -- lightning fast! I placed my order late Monday night and was thrilled to find them already delivered today (Thursday).

I am enjoying a delicious Daily Boost Herba-Smoothie (alongside my 3 kids) as I write to you, and loving the fact that we are all getting something our bodies need for good health.

We are truly excited about the products you offer and the indispensable information your website provides. I can't wait to make our very first Double-E Immune Booster glycerite and homemade VOTFT bug repellent!

God bless you and your work, Angela S.


Did You Know?

After childbirth, a mama's body is gearing up for breastfeeding. It also begins a cleansing process as chemicals, hormones, and nutrients are all adjusting to proper levels as before the pregnancy. The liver, kidneys, colon, etc. are all very involved in this cleansing. Herbs that aid in this process are known as liver cleansers and as blood purifiers. Amazingly enough, many of the liver cleansers and blood purifiers also promote milk production. Some of these herbs are: Fennel, Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, and Dandelion. Most of us may not see the relation between breastfeeding and cleansing. However, God provided the herbs that aid the new mother to get both jobs done. The Mama's Milk Tea recipe was contributed by one of our readers, and includes herbs for after birth.
