Naturally Combat Toenail Fungus with Ayurvedic Healing Techniques


Fungus toenail is a condition that refers to the fungal infections of the toenails. It is a highly painful condition. The cure for fungus toenails using alternative ayurvedic herbs, medicine and therapies like panchakarma detox can help to relieve the pain and other symptoms in a safe and effective manner.


Fungal infections affecting the toenails or fingernails are also called Onychomycosis, or tinea unguium. Toenail fungal infections usually develop over time. Hence, the change in the appearance of the nail and the symptoms may take time to become evident following the exposure to the fungi. Onychomycosis occurs due to the overgrowth of fungi in, on, or under the toenail and fingernail. The use of natural remedies to get rid of toenail fungus can help to prevent these infections by boosting the functions of the immune system.


Best Toenail Fungus Ayurveda Treatment


Fungi thrive in the moist and warm environments. That is why; fungal infections affect the toenails more commonly than the fingernails as the toes are often confined to the shoes. The warm, moist environment created in the feet due to the unhygienic habits can provide a suitable environment for the fungi to survive and grow. Ayurveda can offers the best toenail fungus treatment by producing an antifungal action, and enhancing the ability of the body to fight them.


The factors that can increase the risk of toenail fungal infection include: 


  • Preexisting diabetes or a disorder that can cause a poor blood circulation
  • Swimming in a public swimming pool
  • Wearing artificial nails
  • Having an injury to the nail or the skin around the nail
  • Unhygienic conditions of the nails or keeping the nails or toes moist for an extended time


The natural fungus treatment for nails using herbs can help to prevent this infection by improving the blood circulation, and hastening the repair of the damaged or injured tissues. The fungal infection in toenails may result in the symptoms such as:


  • Scaling and flaking under the nail
  • Whitish or yellowish streaks on the nail
  • A crumbling tip or corner of the nail
  • White areas or spots on the surface of the nails
  • Appearance of yellow spots on or at the bottom of the nail
  • Loss of or disfigurement the nail
  • An odor from the infected nail
  • Brittle nails
  • Thickening of the nail


Patients suffering from these symptoms can achieve a nail infection cure by using natural remedies. These remedies can also help the patients who have a tendency to develop recurrent toenail infections by minimizing the risk of episodes in the future.


Natural Cure For Nail Fungus With Ayurvedic Herbal Medicine


Most patients prefer a natural cure for nail fungus as the herbal remedies can provide significant relief from the symptoms of this condition without causing any side effects. The allopathic medications used for treating this condition include the oral antifungal medication like Terbinafine, Itraconazole, and Fluconazole. However, the results with these medications may not be consistent.


According to Ayurveda, fungal infections are caused due to the vitiation in the three doshas, especially the aggravation of Kapha and Pitta. Hence, Ayurveda aims for an effective nail infection cure through the use of remedies that can correct the imbalance in these doshas. This approach helps to provide long-term results and prevent the tendency of the patients to develop recurrent fungal infections. Additionally, an Ayurveda diet may also be advised for better and faster results. The diet consists of foods that can improve the defense mechanisms of the body against the fungi and removes the foods that can aggravate the Pitta and Kapha dosha.

It can also helps in the regeneration of the affected tissues and hastens the repair and regrowth of the nail.

  • I consulted Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for my teenage son to improve his height. He was 4.11 at 13. I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. Range of dietary, lifestyle changes were suggested and some Ayurvedic medicine was posted to me. I am very happy to say that with in six months, my son has shown a significant improvement in height. His family and friends have all acknowledged the improvement in height. I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for natural height improvements.

  • 3+ years ago just before covid hit, I had sudden intolerance to a string of food predominantly gluten, cow's milk, egg and night shade vegetables. Energy was low and brain was foggy. I consulted and tried other treatments but minimal improvement. I was recommended to Drs Saini and Pooja by a friend who came out of her issues after ayurvedic treatments. Without hesitation, i consulted and started my ayurvedic journey 2+ years ago. It was the best decision I made. During those time, I had 2 sessions of panchakarma treatments. 2+ years later, I can now confidently say that I am able to incorporate gluten and cows milk products into my diet without any issue. My energy is back to normal and the other bonus for me is that unnecessary food cravings have diminished. I am very grateful and appreciated Drs Saini & Pooja's dedication and patient throughout my ayurvedic journey...

  • I have been struggling with IBS-C related gut issues for over 10 years, have been eating low fodmap for many years with no resolutions to my gut function. Recently I’ve been seeing Gurnam Saini (Ayurvedic Doctor) and in only one month of treatment with natural therapies I’ve seen outstanding results. Previously I was unable to digest foods properly/unable to have regular or efficient bowel movements (feeling very unwell due to this), back pain related to abdominal pain, having trouble sleeping and low energy. I’m currently one month into treatment and I never thought I’d be able to restore regular gut function, but I’m properly digesting foods, my sleep is phenomenal and I have a surge in energy, most importantly my mind feels clear and focused with no brain fog and I feel like myself again after years living with the stress of IBS. I’m going to start re-introducing foods in 6 months and have great faith in the knowledge and professionalism shown by Gurnam Saini and the team at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic.

  • Three weeks after my first visit with Gurnam, I started noticing big differences in the symptoms that I was experiencing as a result of hormonal imbalance, anxiety & stress, sleeplessness, hair loss, diabetes and weight issues. The most noticeable change were my hot flushes. My constant hot flushes (approx every 20-30 minutes) were debilitating and driving me to the point where I was just not going out. I was constantly hot and not sleeping week at all. Within 3 weeks this changed to about 2 during the day and just general warmth overnight, which meant I was sleeping better and not having to get up and cool my face and wash my body before returning to bed. My anxiety levels have been reduced significantly, even though I have still been faced with stressful situations and the hair fall much less. The herbal tea that I make each morning and drink through the day keeps me full and is neutral tasting unlike other ‘tonics’ Ive tried before. I look forward to seeing Gurnam monthly to get my mix of Herbal treatments and feeling better with each visit. Thank you Gurnam 🙌🏽

  • I saw Dr Saini in July 2019 for “acid reflux” after suffering of months. I tried different medicines but didn’t work. There was a time I started believing that there was no permanent cure to this disease. Dr Saini is an authentic Ayurvedic doctor. He can do miracles for you. I honestly believe he’s a blessing for the city of Melbourne otherwise it would have been very hard to physically see an Ayurvedic doctor like him. My heart burn got worst with the time & became just unbearable. I couldn’t eat anything or sleep at all. Finally, I found him via google and peoples reviews convinced me to give him a call. He’s an angel & listens everything. He gave me a three month’s plan which I completed happily. But unbelievably my acid reflux reduced 80% within three days & completely gone in five days & it never came back since then. I’m so happy & enjoying my life like I used to. God bless Dr Saini & God bless those who wrote reviews which convinced me to give him a call first time.

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!
