How to treat nail fungus – and how silver can help?
What do you think of when you hear the word fungus? That fuzzy white stuff growing on the leftovers you forgot about in the fridge? The mushroom-like things popping up in the yard after a rainy spell? Whatever pops into your mind, it probably isn’t smelly yellow-ish toenails.
There are an estimated 5.1 million fungal species in existence on Earth. And they take on some very different appearances.
Fungi play a role in both food and toxins, healing and illness. The rare edible fungus known as a truffle, is a delicacy that can cost anywhere from $250 to $4,000 a pound… unless there’s a shortage, in which case we can 10x that. Yet, pick the wrong mushroom from among the wild varieties, and you could be in for a lengthy hospital stay… or worse.
Some species take the form of yeast and are found in fluffy baked breads and fermented beverages. Another species of fungi, Penicillium, is famous for its life-saving antibiotic properties.
And then there’s nail fungus, officially known as onychomycosis… a fungal infection under and/or around the nails, especially toenails.
Toenail fungus is ugly. It thickens, distorts, and discolors the nails. It can be painful, and it can stink.
Alkaline structured silver is a safe and effective natural ally for fighting nail fungus.
