Fungus toenail is a condition that refers to the fungal infections of the toenails.
It can be a painful condition.
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 may help to prevent these infections by boosting the functions of the body's immune system.
Toenail Fungus Natural 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.
Natural Care For Nail Fungus
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 treatment through the use of remedies that can help correct the imbalance in these doshas. This approach aims 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 longer lasting 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.
Ayurveda offers natural herbs that may posses antifungal, immunomodulatory, and antioxidant actions. These remedies can also help to maintain the balance of the three doshas, thus providing long-term results. Some of these herbs used traditionally include:
Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia)
Amalaki (Phyllanthus emblica)
Neem (Azadirachta indica)
Manjistha (Rubia cordifolia)
Khadira (Acacia catechu)
