Fungal infections of the nails are a terrible sight, which could also have serious consequences. Removing fungi is a difficult task as synthetic drugs prove to be ineffective, and so the fungus continues to develop and cause more problems.
However, there is a natural solution that could help you get rid of fungus nails forever, and it contains a few simple ingredients that can be found in every home – vinegar and baking soda.
Microorganisms such as fungi can only survive in a limited range of the hydrogen ph. Apple vinegar (ACV) is acidic in nature and baking soda is slightly alkaline. Together, this powerful combination breaks down the natural environment for the development of fungi and makes them unable to survive for long. Here’s a simple method that will remove the fungus from your nails with these two natural ingredients:
basin for dipping feet
Follow the procedure:
Fill the basin with enough apple vinegar to soak your nails in it and then soak your feet for twenty minutes. Wipe them and dry them, and then fill the basin with warm water. Soak your feet in the water for another twenty minutes, then add a glass of baking soda in the basin, letting your feet sour for another fifteen to twenty minutes. Repeat the procedure as many times as necessary.
It is necessary for your feet to be dry while performing the treatment, so make sure they are dry and clean each time before you dip them into the basin. To prevent fungal infection of the nails, you need to stop wearing shoes that are open close to the toes as the fungi love a dark and damp environment. Regular trimming nails will certainly help, as well as brushing toe tops with a little tea tree oil every day.
Use this treatment for several weeks and your fungus will disappear. Apple cider vinegar is also useful for many diseases other than the treatment of fungi on the nails, thanks to its valuable properties. There are many brands of apple vinegar marketed in the market, but we recommend those with pieces of substance floating on the bottom of the bottle. This substance dissolves in apple vinegar and provides most of its beneficial properties.
