F Food Poisoning – Fungal Nail Disease




Medical Definition
This is incredibly common in the Western World and in particular the United States where many millions of people suffer in silence. Caused by Dermatophytes and Candida albicans the fungus invades the toe or finger nails feeding off the rich supply of keratin found deep in the nail beds.

A number of factors will increase the likelihood of developing nail fungus, and these include poor hygiene, sugary diet, application of artificial nails and nail polish. Sadly yeast infections like this can often start from within our body so it is important to use an agent like allicin that can heal from within as well as treat the condition from without.

TreatmentSimply apply a small dab of allicin cream to the skin around each infected nail or, if the fungus is on your fingernails, then add just 100mg of allicin powder with a little water to each nail twice daily. One other sensible action would be to prevent a recurrent infection by taking allicin powder regularly (360mg per day). Another interesting benefit from applying the liquid to fingernails is that it makes them much stronger and far less likely to crack or split. Apply just one drop per nail before you add your colour and within a few weeks you will notice a significant difference to the quality of your nails.
