Your Diet Can Affect Nail Fungus Infections

veggies 150x150 Your Diet Can Affect Nail Fungus InfectionsThere are a number of ways that fungus can infect the human body.  Whether on your skin, nails or scalp – fungus is not a topical problem.  Fungal infections are systemic and although topical solutions can be effective as a nail fungus treatment, treating the problem systemically makes sense.  Oral medications can be effective, but are difficult to metabolize and can create a strain on your liver.  However, a wonderful alternative to medication is to adjust your diet.  Although a change in diet normally requires a larger lifestyle change, it is important to attack the infection from all angles.  And if you end up eating healthier and dropping a few pounds while you’re at it, then all the better!  Here are a few tips on how to tinker with your diet and get rid of your fungal infection:

Trim Nails To Fight Toenail Fungus

Nails that are not kept clean or healthy are more susceptible to nail fungus infections.  Toenails are especially vulnerable since they often remain in socks and shoes for the majority of the day.  Nail fungus infections occur when a dermatophyte (the agents that cause fungal infections) is able to work it’s way into a damaged nail.  Nails that are chipped, cracked or dirty have a weaker “immune system” when it comes to fighting off the fungal agents.  It’s perfectly OK to wear longer length nails but it is critical to be sure that those nails are healthy in order to be at their strongest.  If you want to never have to worry about buying a toenail fungus treatment, we suggest keeping your nails clean and healthy as well as the skin around your hands and feet.

A Reader’s Success Story

Hi everyone!  I though it was about time to share another nail fungus success story.  This one comes to us courtesy of David R. who wrote in awhile back to discuss how to stop nail fungus infections from re-occurring.  So thanks to David for sharing!

“I’ve had a bad fungal infection on the top-side of my left hand and finger nails.  I sought treatment many times from a dermatologist using a prescription cream.  The cream works as long as I used it everyday.  The minute I ran out, it came right back.  I have tried all topical solutions available with NO luck.  I also have nail fungus on my left hand.  The dermatologist told me that it’s very possible to have the infection on my skin from my nails.  She also said, that the only treatment that would kill the fungus from the inside out, I couldn’t take because its bad on your liver and I do have liver issues.  Well I did some research, spent alot of money on products that didn’t work… until I found FUNGINIX… I’ve been using it now for 3 months.  I notice a huge difference both in my skin condition and my fingernails. My skin condition is almost gone.  My nails are getting clearer.  I just ordered another 5-month supply.  Thanks for an affordable treatment option, that really works for me.  This product works great for skin fungus to.  A complete 2 for 1 solution.”
