Recurrent fungal infections (not just nail fungal infections) are a common sign of a depressed immune system.   People most likely to be affected are:

  • Diabetics
  • Cancer sufferers
  • People who are infected with HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus)
  • Women who use contraceptives
  • People taking antibiotics
  • People who perspire heavily

Vinegar

Ingredients

  • 50% White Distilled Vinegar
  • 50% pure water

Soak your nails in this mixture for 10 to 20 minutes per day.

The acid in vinegar (see uses for vinegar) relieves the itching. It also balances the Ph levels to help combat a fungal invasion.



Tea Tree Oil

Ingredients

  • Apply  a few drops of tea tree oil to the affected area.
  • It can irritate the skin, so first do a small test, and should that be the case then dilute with equal amounts of olive oil.

Do not apply to your mouth and keep away from children.



Wild Oragano Oil

Ingredients

  • Get the Wild Oragano Oil from your local health shop.
  • Apply a few drops to the affected area.

Garlic

And then of course our favorite healing with garlic.

Amongst this miracle bulb's healing quality is that it is also one of the most powerful anti-fungals in the natural world.

Garlic appears to stimulate the immune system cells called neutrophils and macrophages, which help the body fight infections.




Chamomile

This herb, which is better known for its calming qualities can also be applied directly to the skin for fungal infections.

This is an age old remedy that goes back to the days of our forefathers.

Did you know that......

Tomatoes are not just a tasty ingredient for your salad, they are also very good for you.

Tomatoes are rich in the antioxidant lycopene, which is responsible for their red color, and also lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, thereby reducing the risk of heart disease and protecting against strokes.

It has also now been found that this antioxidant lycopene also seems to have stress-reducing properties.

A cup of raw tomatoes contains 4.6mg of lycopene and the recommended daily amount of the antioxident is 6 to 15mg.
