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've never liked tea, but when you sent me the Dr. Cinnamon and Red Raspberry Brew free samples, I was so happy with the products, I wanted to buy more to drink regularly. :) JEG


Did You Know?

Split ends and frail hair can be drastically reduced by simply consuming Horsetail cut and/or powder. Also, weak and thin fingernails can be stronger and thicker after just a few weeks. The nutritional structure of Horsetail is well known as one of the best cures for such annoyances. Just add a bit of the cut herb to any tea combination. In a tincture, it would even be more effective. The powder can also be encapsulated, if you prefer. Continue usage even after you see improvements to make them more permanent.

Kelp would be our second choice as a nutritional powerhouse that can make a noticeable difference. Consuming both would be the best way to tackle it.
