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

Dear ones: Thank you so much for providing the opportunity to buy books and herbs at reasonable prices, along with the good information you have provided on this website. Using the books you provided, I was able to make a salve for my 3 year-old daughter which actually tames an itchy, red, dry rash on her hands that has plagued her for two years. I used the information you provided, along with the information from the books I ordered from you, and then herbs from my garden and woods to make this healthy skin salve (that's what our family calls it - we've all become believers after each of us has benefited from it!). I have long been frustrated with her rashes and have found nothing over-the-counter to actually diminish it, and eliminate the pain and itching. I thank the Lord for you and for his healing plants!

Did You Know?

Daily sprinkling a little Cayenne powder on the toothpaste on your toothbrush can work miracles in fighting and preventing gum disease. That's right! It will also help deal with other oral ailments that plague many folks these days. After reading about this, we just had to try it. There is a warm sensation in your mouth as you brush your teeth, but it soon disappears after rinsing. As always, whenever using Cayenne powder, you should start with very small amounts to allow the body some time to build up a tolerance. The first few times we used it, we sprinkled so little of the powder on the toothpaste that we didn't feel anything. As the days progressed, we increased the amounts slightly until we felt it was warm enough. After using it for a little while, the nice feeling in your mouth is very satisfying. Be warned, however, that you do not want to overdo this one, so start small.
