Do You Have Clear Toenails?
I had a female patient recently tell me she has a fungal nail problem every winter. She wanted to know what topical lotion she could use, or if Agrisept-L would make a difference? Agrisept-L is citric seed extract sourced from lemon, grapefruit, and tangerine extracts. I personally take ten drops in four ounces of water every day along with Dandelion Leaf and Root and Peppermint Leaf.
Chronic nail issues originate from an overgrowth of mold, yeast, or fungus in your colon. The colon has a symbiotic relationship with what some call good and bad bacteria. I would like you to think of your colon as a garden. When you eat sugar, the garden grows like there was no strategy in the seed planting. It appears to me the “weeds” or unfriendly organisms flourish. Over time, the “bad guys” beat up on the “good guys” and you get symptoms of nausea, runny nose, diarrhea, and a low-grade fever. Most people would wait a few days and see what is up, maybe even change their diets, take a few home remedies and wait it out. Others immediately run to the conventional physician who gives them a prescription for “weed killers”. The “weed killers” today are so powerful, that many of them literally kill everything, including the “good guys”.
As time progresses, the colon looks like a battlefield, and the opportunistic yeast organisms show up and take over. As time goes on, yeast, fungus, or mold is growing everywhere-some are picked up in the blood and go for the ride of their life, ending up in your toes. With shoes, socks, and warm with little blood flow, is BAM, a fertile environment for toe fungus.
You can put lotions, potions, soaks, sprays, and chemicals on your toes and never get rid of the problem. We use a combination of herbs to clean the colon and encourage the elimination of sugar from your diet. Why winter? There are a couple of possibilities: Socks and shoes, more holiday sugar, lack of sun which means less calcium, and a compromised immune system.
