A countless number of drugs have been tested to fight toenail fungus, but to no avail due to the often serious side effects of liver and kidney damage. Also, most of the drugs on the market must be taken over very long periods of time. This can become extremely expensive in some cases.
As a natural physician I have seen these kinds of problems over the past fifteen years and can confirmthere is a non-toxic and quite inexpensive method to completely eliminate this nagging problem.
I have been successful over the years in treating this medical fungal problem by simply placing your feet in an ionic foot bath for 30-60 minutes. After the initial treatment in the foot spa, I advise the patient to trim back the nail as far as possible without causing any pain or drawing blood. Use a nail file to scrape away any remaining dead tissue away onto a disposable sheet. Make sure to carefully dispose of the trimmings.
Once you have completed filing, place several drops of DMSO (Dimethyl Sulfoxide) [one part] to nine parts of SSKI (Saturated Solution of Potassium Iodide) together. DMSO is a wood derivative that is rapidly absorbed through living tissue. It loses its oxygen portion and is excreted in part as Dimethyl Sulfide, which produces a garlic-like odor. It is useful as a non-toxic carrier for other substances.
Apply a couple drops of this mixture under the infected nail 2-3 times per day after using the A12X Power machine. Keep cutting the nail back and don’t forget to clean the dead tissue from under the nail as best you can. When you begin to see new nail growing, stop the treatment and allow the nail to fully grow back. Keep in mind that toe nails generally grow slower than fingernails so be patient while the healthy nail grows back. That being said, this general technique can be applied to your fingernails as well.
It is possible that DMSO and SSKI may not be available in your area. Another alternative tincture to be used is tea tree oil, however I find my solution to be more effective and provide a better chance for complete healing.
- Cleanse and detoxify with a 30+ minute foot spa session
- Trim the nail back without causing bleeding or pain
- File excess dead skin with a nail file
- Apply a few drops of the DMSO and SSKI solution 2-3 times daily
Repeat the steps regularly until new and healthy nail starts growing back
