natural alternative to lamisil?

Posted by dmwilliams

I was given Lamisil for toe fungus and it cleared a raw spot by my nostrils, my toe fungus, and athlete's foot.  It possibly took away what looked like "pregnancy mask"...even though my baby is 4 1/2 year old and I am not on birth control.  I was wondering if there was a natural alternative to Lamisil since it is so bad for your liver.

Hi dmwilliams,

Tea tree oil (melaleuca alternifolia essential oil) is powerful for fighting fungus. It is safe to use full strength on a cotton swab for small areas. I would recommend a daily foot soak with a cup of epsom salts and several drops of tea tree oil in warm water for your feet. Dry feet thoroughly especially in between toes. Then drop one drop of tea tree ( or rotate using Lemon essential oil) on each affected toe nail and between each toe, using a cotton swab to push the oil around the cuticle and nail bed.  You might want to look into a colon cleanse for clearing systemic yeast. I highly recommend yeast fighting softgels that contain essential oils called Inner Defense. They are available at my Oils For Wellness website.

Hope this info helps!

Be well, Jen

Hi dmwilliams,

Apple cider vinegar is one of the most effective natural remedies for toenail fungus. My
sister used to heat the vinegar until it is lukewarm, place it in a basin, and soak her feet in the solution for a good half an hour or so each day to address her toenail fungus, and it worked pretty well for her. Along with this remedy she also applied Fungusil liquid treatment and maintain a healthy foot habit to prevent the fungus from spreading.
