Dr Oz’s Nail Fungus Remedy Instructions:
Dr. Oz says that 15 million Americans suffer from Onychomycosis or nail fungus. If your toenails are thick, yellow and/or chewed away at the edges, then there is a good chance that you too have fungus growing in your nails (or onychomycosis). When you are walking (particularly without shoes or socks and on a damp surface) fungus can embed itself into the cracks in the top of your nail (where the fungus can actually grow, live and thrive off of the nutrients in your nails). In addition to wearing flat shoes (so that you keep pressure off of your nails, and replacing cotton socks (which harbor moisture) with synthetic socks (which creates a dry atmosphere so the fungus can’t thrive), there are several options and home remedies. You can try pills for nail fungus, but this can be toxic for your liver. Instead, why not first try a simple vinegar bathe? Vinegar is proven to kill bacteria and may very well get rid of the fungi growing in your nails! Here is how to do it:
1. Mix 2 parts of vinegar with 4 parts of water (so twice the amount of water to vinegar). I generally use about 4 cups of vinegar and 8 cups of warm water.
2. Soak your feet in the vinegar bath for 20 minutes.
3. Rinse your feet and repeat as needed.
