for toenail fungus
A Vinegar cure for toenail fungus has long been a natural remedy and an easy way of dealing with a nail fungus problem.
Out of all the different varieties of Vinegar available, and there are many, Apple cider vinegar is by far the most widely used to fight an infection of toenail fungus.
Although we consume Vinegar, use it on our food and even preserve some food in it, it is an acid, and it can kill the fungus spores.
It is, what we may term a
or a vinegar cure.
Vinegar has an amazing history of curing ailments, disinfecting, cleaning and even healing broken bones.
There is the famous old English nursery rhyme where
|Jack and Jill went up the Hill to fetch a pale of water |
Jack fell down and broke his crown and Jill came tumbling after.
Up Jack got and home did trot as fast as he could caper
the old dame Dob, who patched his nob used 'vinegar and brown paper'.
My grandmother used to treat a sprained ankle by loosly binding it in a bandage soaked in vinegar.
Although she used home made grape vinegar, it always cured the foot sprain and reduced the swelling almost immediately.
Before treating the nail fungus, it is always best to use a sandpaper file and remove as much of the nail as possible above the fungus infected part of the toenail.
This will allow the vinegar to penetrate the nail easier and also allow for more vinegar to saturate the infected area, giving better results of the natural remedy or natural cure.
To treat nail fungus this is one of the 'old school' ways of a natural cure.
Use by either mixing with water 50/50 and soaking the foot in the mixture for around 10 Mins.
Or by using it directly from the bottle to soak the fungus infected toenail.
Treatment should be at least once daily and preferably twice for the bad cases of toenail fungus.
There are other ways to a natural remedy and there are new manufactured products available too, however it is always the old tried and tested herbs, oils and vinegars that keep coming back as the 'wat to go'.
Keeping it simple and easy to
cure nail fungus.
When using Vinegar to cure a fungal infection you must use it sensibly and in accordance with the severity of the fungal infection.
For the more severe cases use it 'undiluted and directly on the nail' this should be done as many times as possible during the day to almost 'pickle' the nail.
Of course it need not be done so often with less severe cases.
You may find it easier to apply the vinegar to the toenail by using a bottle with a 'dropper' attached or by using vinegar soaked cotton buds.
Covering the infected nail with two or three drops at a time and changing the cotton bud with every application.
Carry a smaller bottle with you during the day and apply a few drops whenever you find the time.
Treating and killing
will take time and persistance, do not give up on the treatment until it is cleared and grown out and your new, healthy toenails have returned.
