I have toenail fungus? Really!? The idea had just never occurred to me. Instead for months I assumed nail polish was yellowing my big toenails.
One day I realized how thick the nails had become and took a closer look. Sure enough, I was dealing with something more serious.
I'm not sure what happened to me. But this kind of fungus can come from public showers, gyms, or spas. It enters through small cuts in your skin or an injured nail bed.
If your feet sweat a lot, that's a problem. Having a weak immune system makes matters worse. (That was me for sure.)
By the time I took notice, my toenail fungus was in full bloom. The nails of both big toes were swallowed alive, with some fungus beginning to spread to neighboring toes.
But I knew better than to freak out. Even though it looked bad, my body could heal this if I provided the right help.
Sure, the antifungal drugs would be a guaranteed "fix," but at what cost? Every time you take a drug, you attack your body - not just the problem. And who needs that!
I did some research and discovered several natural antifungal remedies, such as soaking in vinegar or hydrogen peroxide or applying tea tree oil or clove oil.
I like to keep things simple, so daily foot soaks were out. Then I read about oil of oregano, which is a natural antifungal that cures yellow toenails. This seemed like an easier and safer option since tea tree oil and clove oil can be strong.
I must admit I wondered for several weeks if my nifty home remedy would work. My toenail fungus was very well established.
At one point I thought the nails were pulling away from the nail bed, but actually that was a good sign. The new growth was not nearly as thick, and it was definitely healthy.
The hard part is waiting. Toenails take about four times longer to grow than fingernails, and it can be a year to a year and a half before a toenail has fully grown.
But regrowth is slow whether you use drugs or a natural antifungal. I vote for the natural.
