Eliminate carbs and sugars
Eliminate or greatly reduce refined carbohydrates, dairy products, and sugar from your diet. They only feed fungus.
Clean and trim nails
Trim yellow fungal growth with clippers and soak your feet or fingers daily for 15 to 20 minutes in two parts warm water with one part apple cider vinegar. Continue this for 12 weeks.
Apply hydrogen peroxide
Apply a three percent topical solution of hydrogen peroxide with water several times a day for several months to combat fungal spores in nail beds.
Treat with tea tree oil
Treat nail fungus with undiluted tea tree oil drops two to three times daily for six months. Even missing one day may result in fungus regeneration.
Eat probiotics –good bacteria like yogurt and kefir – to combat fungus. Homeopathic practitioners also recommend herbal extracts such as olive leaf oil for their anti-fungal agents.
Use prescription medications
Use topical or prescribed oral medications if the homeopathic treatments fail.
