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!

From our Mailbox

KUDOS to your shipping department... because it was pouring rain the day that it arrived and the UPS guy left it at the end of the driveway (we have a gate to keep the animals out of the orchard). It was in a plastic bag, but the box was still SOAKING wet. We looked at it and thought, "Well, whatever is inside is going to be completely destroyed." We peeled the box off (yes, peeled!) and you know what? Your shipping department did such a great job packaging everything that everything was completely dry. Even the book was perfectly intact. Yay! =)


Did You Know?

The daily consumption of Spirulina can improve and restore your energy levels like few other food sources can. This is partly due to its high content of riboflavin. Riboflavin helps release energy from carbohydrates, proteins and fats. So, the more riboflavin you consume, the more energy you'll get out of the foods you eat. Spirulina has more riboflavin than any other food source, making it perfect for those desiring an energy boost without any side effects.
