  1. Mix five drops each of lavender oil and tea tree oil.
  2. Use a cotton ball to apply this solution under the top edge of the affected toenail and surrounding area.

Following the protocols outlined in this 3 parts series for several months might be able to help solve the problem for good, and then you can slowly reintroduce sources of sugar like fruit, or whole grains, while monitoring your progress. However keep in mind that some candida or yeast sufferers have lived with their condition for years, so combating the issue might take more than just a few weeks or months.


Eat a diet that’s moderately high in good fats and proteins along with quality fiber, eliminate sugars and starches, and we’re on the way to eliminating candida in your body, and the toenail fungus.

Eat Plenty Of:

  • Colorful vegetables – these nutrient-packed whole foods provide essential vitamins and minerals, heal the gut and boosts the immune system.
  • Cultured dairy or fermented foods (organic and raw) – these are beneficial for replacing good bacteria in the gut since they provide probiotics. Probiotics help control yeast and also have numerous immune-enhancing effects. Sources of probiotics would be goat yogurt or kefir and  cultured foods like kimchi, kombucha or sauerkraut.
  • Vegetable juices/green drinks – Green vegetables will help improve your immune response and flush waste, toxins and bacteria from your gut. Avoid adding fruit and sugar to your green drinks and focus on fresh veggies. You can use a small amount of organic stevia extract to help sweeten your veggie juices since it contains no sugar.
  • Coconut oil, ground flax and chia seeds – Flax and chia seeds are anti-fungal and provide healthy, healing sources of fats. Coconut oil does the same, it also contains lauric acid, a powerful antimicrobial and antibacterial fatty acid.
  • Garlic, turmeric and cinnamon – all effective for fighting bacterial infections, virus and poor gut health
  • Unsweetened cranberry juice – Cranberry juice creates an environment that is unpleasant for yeast. Make sure to look for a 100 percent pure unsweetened cranberry juice.
  • High quality proteins from grass-fed, pasture-raised, cage-free and wild-caught chicken, beef, eggs and fish, if you choose to eat animal products.

Vegetable Protein Sources

  • Almonds, bean sprouts (all kinds), bee pollen, Blue-Green algae, brewer’s/nutritional  yeast, chlorella, Go Ji berries, cereal grass powders, green leafy veggies (spinach, kale, arugula, collards, green cabbage, parsley, etc.), hemp seeds, Maca, sea phyto-plankton, olives, bee propolis, pumpkin seeds, Spirulina, sprouted grains, sprouted wild rice, pinto beans, Brazil nuts, dried coconut meat, filberts, oatmeal, split peas, pecans, rice bran, sesame seeds/tahini, fresh soybeans, organic, fermented, sprouted, soy bean tofu, tempeh, soy milk, sunflower seeds, walnuts, and a non-dairy protein powder.

Alkaline Food Sources

  • Green vegetable juices and Vegetable Smoothie
  • Leafy green vegetables
  • Adaptogen herbs
  • Cereal grasses
  • Micro-algae’s
  • Medicinal mushrooms
  • Certain fruits – lemons, limes and grapefruit
  • Sprouts and micro-greens
  • Certain fermented foods
  • Wild edible greens and edible flowers
  • Aloe Vera
  • Bee pollen
  • Seaweeds
  • Noni

Foods to be Avoided or Greatly Limited:

  • Sugar – all types as much as possible, including cane sugar, coconut sugar, honey, maple syrup. Sugar feeds yeast, so you should avoid it.
  • Grains – grains wind up breaking down into sugar molecules which as you know, feed candida, yeast and bad bacteria. Even whole grains (like oats, rice, quinoa) are capable of worsening the problem, limit grains.
  • Fruit or fruit juice – is high in sugar and can make candida worse. Fruit juice also lacks fiber and therefore causes blood sugar spikes that can lead to cravings, low energy, inflammation and poor immune function.
  • Alcohol – produces more yeast and should be avoided.
  • Food intolerances – Some yeast infections are due to food allergies. Avoid foods that cause negative reactions of any kind and pay attention to symptoms you experience when eating things like dairy, eggs, certain nuts, wheat-containing foods and grains.

Following this protocol for several months might solve the problem for good, and then you can slowly reintroduce sources of sugar like fruit, or whole grains while monitoring your progress. Let’s keep in mind that some candida or yeast sufferers have lived with their condition for years, so combating the issue might take more than just a few weeks or months.

Eating in accordance with an anti-candida diet for six months or more might be needed for some people, and for a percentage eliminating all refined carbs, sugary foods and alcohol permanently might be necessarily in order to prevent the overgrowth of fungus from returning.


Toenail fungus is usually a sign of a Candida yeast or virus inside the body and topically. “Onychomycosis” or tinea unguium is the name for the type of infection that causes the fungi to appear on the nails. The cause is an underlying fungal growth from dermatophytes or

non-dermatophyte molds and yeasts (mainly Candida species).   

Dietary protocol for eliminating yeast overgrowth:

  1. Cutting out all sugars, alcohol, milk products and any processed or junk foods that feed the yeast and unwanted bacteria
  2. Eating beneficial foods that help replace good bacteria in the gut, (sauerkraut, kim chee, miso) and taking a pre-biotic powder to also assist in the microbiome regeneration
  3. Eating more fiber, clean sources of protein and nourishing fats such as olive oil, coconut oil, flax seed oil, hemp seed oil, and ghee

Step 1: Eliminating the Source of Yeast and Fungus

An important tactic for treating candida overgrowth is to eliminate what feeds the yeast and candida virus living in your digestive tract: sugars and grain products. Candida albicans yeast commonly grows inside the human body, the immune system needs to be strong to fight it so the Candida doesn’t take hold and root.

Once it does take hold, the bacteria and yeast thrive off of sugar molecules entering the digestive tract through the foods you eat.  Our treatment principle is to restore the body’s pH balance, improve the immune function and boost the good bacteria in your gut.

It’s difficult to effectively overcome any type of yeast infection or toenail fungus without kicking sugar and going grain-free.

Step 2: Replenishing Healthy Bacteria

Eat large amounts of food that support the growth of good bacteria.

Superfoods that will help replenish healthy bacteria include fermented foods, cultured vegetables like sauerkraut and kimchi. Have daily serving of fermented vegetables along with other probiotic foods. In the beginning, introduce fermented foods slowly as they can cause digestive upset.

Step 3. Fiber, Protein and Quality Fats

Eat a high fiber diet. Fiber, due to its structure and the body’s inability to absorb it, passes through our digestive system un-absorbed by digestive enzymes and acids within the stomach, taking with it toxins, waste, fat and cholesterol particles that can accumulate within the gut.

Remove sugars and grains from your diet, add more fiber and increase the protein foods. If you eat animal products make sure to eat only grass-fed meat; organic, cage-free eggs or poultry; raw dairy; and wild-caught fish.

Your gut will also need plenty of healthy fats, especially coconut oil. Coconut oil contains caprylic acid and lauric acid, which are antibacterial and antimicrobial fatty acids that kill off candida.

Eat a diet that’s high in good fats and proteins along with quality fiber, eliminate sugars and starches, and we’re on the way to eliminating candida in your body, and the toenail fungus.
