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.


Castor oil packs aid in elimination and detoxification. Castor oil packs have many applications and are used in many conditions including fibroids, cysts, headaches, migraines, constipation, intestinal disorders, gallbladder and liver conditions, and other dysfunctions when used properly and consistently.

Supplies:

  • Small/dish towel, piece of flannel
  • large/bath towel
  • hot water bottle or heating pad
  • castor oil

Directions:

1) Apply a generous amount of castor oil to the desired body part

2) Put a piece of plastic wrap or a plastic bag over the area you just put castor oil on

3) Place a dry dish towel or flannel over the plastic

4) Place a hot water bottle or heating pad over the towel/flannel

5) Cover all with a larger towel, creating a tent-like effect to keep the heat in (If too hot place a second towel/piece of flannel over the plastic)

6) 20-minute minimum rest. You may sleep, use visualization, or meditation at this time.

The use of sauna is a major part of most detox programs because the “heat stress” of a sauna is very effective in releasing toxins from fat cells.
Saunas may be either dry or wet.

For a dry sauna, no moisture is added to the sauna room. Electricity is used to generate infrared heat. Dry saunas stimulate vasodilation of peripheral blood vessels and increase cardiovascular activity, which helps the body rid itself of more toxins. Saunas speed up all metabolism in the body and inhibit the replication of pathogenic organisms, such as bacteria and viruses. The immune response is also strengthened because the number of leukocytes (a type of white blood cell) in the blood is increased.

Steam is used in wet saunas. A steam generator or water poured over the heated rocks may be used to provide steam. The steam raises the body temperature quickly and is beneficial for arthritic pain and upper respiratory conditions. The humid heat helps the skin.

Dry saunas are recommended because they increase sweating and so speed detoxification. A complete sauna cleansing program should include exercise, time in a dry sauna, and a cleansing shower followed by a massage or physical therapy.
