Natural Toenail Fungus Treatment
Fungal infections of the finger and toenails are very common and notoriously difficult to get rid of. Fungi are everywhere in our environment and can infect various parts of the body with different effects.
When the nails become infected with a fungus they begin to look thickened and discolored. As the infection progresses and invades more of the nail, flaking, peeling and crumbling may occur.
In some instances the nail comes smoothly away from the underlying nail bed as a result of the fungal growth. These nails will not only look unsightly, but also have a tendency to smell unpleasant as the fungus grows and invades the tissue.
Our nails are naturally built to be strong barriers, and resistant to fungi and other infections. However, because of how strong this barrier is, once nail fungus is present, it is sometimes very difficult to eliminate the infection.
What Increases Fungal Nail Infection Risk?
Fungi love warm and moist environments to grow in. Tight footwear, especially when used for exercising, provides an ideal breeding ground for fungi. Nail fungus commonly grows in communal showers and is easily passed from one person to another via barefeet.
Any reason for reduced immune functioning will predispose an individual to fungal nail infections. Diseases like diabetes and AIDS, as well as lifestyle factors like exposure to pollution, lack of exercise and an unbalanced diet, all hinder healthy immune functioning.
Natural Nail Fungus Remedies
Fingernail fungus and toe nail fungus can be very stubborn to treat. Conventional treatment of a fungal nail infection is expensive and long-term. Treatment may include topical preparations and/or oral anti-fungal medications.
Oral anti-fungals all have significant side-effects and interact with many other medications. Often, when an infection has cleared up, it soon returns after discontinuing medication.
Natural nail fungus remedies are a safe and effective alternative to conventional toe nail fungus treatment, without harmful side-effects.
