One of the most common ailments afflicting humans globally is toe nail fungus. This fungus causes a pH imbalance of the skin towards the alkaline side. The result can be both itchiness and pain.
Whenever you hear the word "fungus" in connection with your health you should immediately think of vinegar.
If you are suffering from this condition you may see some very different symptoms.
Probably the most common symptom will be a discoloration of the nail. This could include a dullness in shade. Healthy nails are normally shiny so if one of your nails looses it's shine or turns color you should start treatment right away.
Your nails could turn brittle and start breaking off on the ends.
If one nail becomes much thicker than the rest and becomes harder to cut it may be a sign to pull out your vinegar.
In severe cases you may find your nails have become painful as they start to come away from the nail bed.
Nail fungus, which loves to grow in dark and damp environments, is well suited for the environment it finds under your toe nails. Many treatments will attack the fungus itself and can be very effective, at least as a temporary measure. Unfortunately, to be truly successful your remedy must also be able to kill it when it is in its spore form.
Vinegar, both white and apple cider vinegar, is very effective as a home remedy because it addresses not just one but both forms of fungus. It is extremely effective when used with hydrogen peroxide to kill both bacteria and viruses.
Vinegar is a strong natural acetic acid or ethanoic acid which is safe to use both internally and externally. Its acidic properties will help restore your body’s pH balance to normal levels.
Vinegar will also stop the fungus from spreading around the nail or to your other toes.
There are various ways you can treat your fungus using vinegar but the following 2 appear to be preferred:
In addition to the above I suggest you bathe twice a day at regular intervals until your condition is resolved.
