This frequently asked question today, is toenail fungus Candida? It’s a question I got asked by a lady in America a few weeks ago, so I think I’ll reply to that question now.

Toenail fungus is Candida. It is a form of fungal or yeast infection. And another term for toenail fungus is onychomycosis; try to remember that name. You probably see it on some sites like WebMD or Mayo Clinic website, onychomycosis. Tinea unguium or tinea pedis, so these are other terms we tend to use for toenail fungus.

Toenail fungus will commonly occur on one or more of your toenails. A clinical observation I’ve got is you’ll often find it on the large toenail of the leading foot, so the leading foot being the foot that you step off with. If you’re right handed, check out the large right toenail carefully for little specks of discoloration of toenail. If you’re left handed, check out your left large toe. I believe that it’s got to do with an increasing blood supply to this toe because it’s more active because you’re stepping off with it and using that foot a little bit ahead of the other foot. It may seem like crazy logic to medical doctors, but that’s just my clinical observation.

Many people have got toenail fungus. It’s a very common condition. In fact, so common, people tend to ignore it and they don’t think it’s a problem. I think it is a problem. It’s a bit like rust in a car. Once it sets in small areas, sometimes people tend to forget about it, but eventually it spreads and gets bigger and bigger until sometimes it’s irreparable.

So make sure you get onto small things before they become big things in life. Whether it’s an argument with somebody or a debt you owe or toenail fungus, if it’s small, it’s easy to treat, so get onto these things first.

So tea tree oil is a very, very good way to treat, Australian tea tree oil. Just a drop of oil on the toenail once per day, but make sure that you follow my Candida Crusher diet and read my book to get a good understanding on how to tackle the “beast called yeast.”

Thanks for tuning in.
