Toenail fungus is an embarrassing problem that can be hard to treat. The medical route involves fungicides which are toxic. Since the skin and nails absorb what they come in contact with, it is best to avoid putting toxins on the body, especially when there is a non-toxic and effective option.

The easy remedy that Dr. Sylvia Skefich, chiropractor has been recommending for years with excellent effect is to apply two different essential oils to the toenail beds, twice per day. You must apply both of these oils; either one alone will not do the trick. The two oil combo hits the fungus hard. The fungus dies away as your toenails grow out clean and fresh. The two essential oils are Tea Tree Oil (otherwise known as melaleuca), and Tamu Oil (otherwise known as tamanu oil). It’s best to use oils that have a high level of purity. Some oil companies use a chemical extraction process that leaves a harmful chemical residue in the end product.

We recommend and offer Health Concerns brand Tamu Oil with a peppermint base, and doTERRA melaleuca (or tea tree) oil. Toenails do take some time to grow out, up to a year and a half in some people, so be patient.

You can also use your Melaleuca/tee tree oil for other purposes; as an antiseptic right on top of more superficial cuts and scrapes or right on top of herpes sores for a therapeutic and relieving effect. You can additionally use your Tamu oil for skin softening purposes….Tamu Oil comes from the” tamanu” Polynesian nut. This nut oil is used by woman traditionally in many cultures. The oil has properties that are understood biochemically. It is shown to produce new healthy tissue growth, it is anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, and is an antioxidant. It also has the ability to penetrate the skin layers.

We offer Health Concerns’ “Tamu Oil.” It has a peppermint and avocado oil base, and it does not have the funny smell associated with Tamanu oil. It just smells like peppermint. We have observed this product’s effectiveness, having recommended this combo for the toenail issue for over a decade.

Protocol:

Put a thin layer of each oil on the toenail beds two times per day. You do not need to try to get the oils under the nail edge, just on the entire top surface. Your toenails will start to grow out clean of the fungus. You will have to keep up the protocol as close to daily as is possible. It can take 9 months to a year and a half for the full toenail to grow new.

What if the protocol does not work? Let’s say in 6 months, you should expect to see some new growth coming in, and you don’t. This indicates one (or both) of two things may be in play. You may have a systemic fungus condition, and/or you may have poor circulation to your extremities. Although the toenail fungus protocol works for most people, most of the time, we need to have an approach for when it does not work.
