 Toenail Fungal Infection Ayurvedic Remedies 

Author : Gurnam Saini  

fungus toenails natural herbal remedies melbourne

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.

  • My experience with herbal Ayurveda was positive. I found a tremendous amount of healing with this therapy after suffering from bronchitis and arthritic pain for years. The herbal massage was the best thing I ever did. I stopped my medication, the bronchitis healed and my arthritis improved remarkably. I highly recommend it and I look forward to more treatments.

  • I strongly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic to anyone who is looking into natural and organic health benefits. I consulted Ayurvedic Doctor Dr Gurnam Saini for hair loss treatment, as I had almost tried everything from expensive hair products to medicine for years and was highly disappointed. Dr Saini was very detailed and made me understand how lot of factors including my digestive fire, my sleep, my lifestyle etc. were directly impacting my hair health. I was highly impressed with his knowledge and his passion about getting me to understand the root cause. I clearly figured out how I was not in sync with my body. I am actually surprised that these organic ayurvedic medicines are very effective, as that was not my immediate expectation and I thought it will be a very lengthy process, but I was ready to give it a go! He also gave a me a specific ayurvedic organic hair oil to put on my scalp. It's been 3 months and I have almost completely stopped loosing hair and gaining more volume in my hair. I also found that taking shirodhara and nasya and head massage ayurvedic therapies of Dr Saini's recommendation was also important part of the treatment. I now feel more connected to my body and definitely my hair growth is visible to me and my family. Thank you Dr Gurnam Saini and Dr Pooja Saini (for those amazing therapies). You guys are working for a great cause.

  • After struggling for years with energy levels, food intolerances and sleep issues with our daughter, we tried Dr Saini. The results for her have been outstanding. Her food intolerances (she was on a strict FODMAP diet) have all but disappeared. Her sleep is consistent and better. Her ability to regulate herself across an entire day (without falling into a heap) has improved her life quality 100 fold. His approach is thoughtful and considered. We always feel like he listens to all aspects of her health and adapts his methods to what she needs next. I would highly recommend working with Dr Saini to anyone considering it.

  • Hello all, I have been consulting Dr. Saini for past 2years or so and have found his treatment very helpful and effective. He has a deep knowledge of Aryuveda and listens to your health issues, doubts and concerns patiently and advices Aryuved herbs and gives advice accordingly. He is kind and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Dr. Saini to anyone who is looking for treatment for their health issues or improving their overall health.

  • Excellent services. Best Ayurvedic Doctors in Melbourne. So humble and calm. Listens to the clients very well and make a very detailed individualised plan.

  • I decided to take my 10 yr old daughter to Dr Saini after 9.5 yrs of struggling with eczema and food intolerances, and no solutions found but topical, long term use of cortisone creams. After only one month, we saw massive improvements in her skin, finally clearing up the majority of her eczema. This was done with herbal capsules and without needing to remove various foods from her diet. That improvement allowed us to tackle other health concerns like her consistent disturbed sleep. Now 4 months on, her skin is perfect, and her sleep is mostly uninterrupted. Any sporadic nighttime waking is for a very short period of time. And even better, now we can focus on her digestion which is my last concern for her. I can’t recommend Ayurvedic medicine enough to gently and naturally heal and balance out your body. l had done lots of reading on Ayurveda before we tried it, and all my expectations have been met and I’m sure will be exceeded in the near future. Thank you Dr Saini, for your kind and gentle consultations, and genuine interest in better health outcomes for your patients.

  • This is truly a fantastic cleanse! Dr Saini guides you through every step and you will feel the benefits physically, mentally and emotionally. I’ve done other cleanses but the simplicity and effectiveness of this one is second to none.

  • Dr Saini has been so supportive in working with me to refine my mind, body and spirit to once again be able to consume gluten. Once I was diagnosed as gluten-intolerant, I thought I would never eat gluten again. But by embracing the ways of Ayurveda, I am now eating gluten on a daily basis that is pain free and discomfort free. Joseph Ferguson

  • It was a wonderful experience with u guys.A natural way to fight the disease with no side effects of treatment.

  • I cannot recommend highly enough. This has been my first experience with Ayurvedic medicine and the Panchakarma cleanse and I can finally say that after years of striving for better health and wellbeing, I finally understand what is going to work for me moving forward. Having experience a traumatic event and subsequent PTSD 5 years ago, my gut and my body became increasingly compromised. In this time I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome and various ailments of the gut. I came to see Dr Saini and Pooja at a time that I felt frustrated with my years of work to see some more obvious progress with my healing. Having completed the Panchakarma cleanse, I am feeling fully renewed. Awake. Settled. I no longer struggle to wake each morning and get through each day. My appetite feels steady and all cravings have completely ceased. I now have some tools under my belt to fall back on when I know my digestive system needs a break. This cleanse has been a complete game changer. Thankyou Dr Saini and Pooja for you incredible guidance and support. Liz
