How to Cure Fungi based Infections

What Are Fungi?

At this time and age, it is not wise to use any of the home remedies out there to heal your diseases. If you suspect that you might be sick, see a fully qualified medical doctor for assistance. But if you can not afford the doctors fee, as it is for millions in the developing countries, or if your doctor's prescriptions are not curing your disease, then you can try some home remedies rather than not do anything about your sickness.

Statistics shows that there are very many people suffering from yeast or fungus infection. But what are fungi? Fungi, of whose singular is fungus, are a kingdom of eukaryotic organisms. The fungi are heterotrophic organisms characterized by a chitin cell wall, and in the majority of species, filamentous growth as multi-cellular hyphae forming a mycelium. Some fungal species are known to grow as single cells. Fungi reproduction is via spores, often produced on specialized structures or in fruiting bodies. Examples of fungi are yeasts, molds and mushrooms. Fungi are more closely related to animals than plants, yet the discipline of biology devoted to the study of fungi, known as mycology often falls under a branch of botany. We thus can define fungi as taxonomic kingdom of lower plants.

Problem: Fungal Infection

Fungus Infection causes skin's shedding, redness, burning, flaking and rawness. Fungus Infection will be found in any areas of our bodies and it will include the following (a) dry scaly peeling lips (b) nail fungus (c) athlete's foot (d) diaper rash (e) under the breast (f) vagina (h) foot odor.

The Substance to use: Boric acid powder

Boric acid powder is a product you already have in your home or you can cheaply buy from your store for a few cents. Boric acid powder is less toxic than table salt. If Boric acid powder is mixed with wheat flour and scattered in hidden spots in your kitchen, it will kill all the cockroaches in your kitchen. It kills roaches by dehydrating the stomach of a cockroach. Use it to wipe out these roaches you have in your kitchen. Remember Boric acid powder is less toxic than table salt.

What have we learnt? We have learnt that Boric acid powder will dehydrate (remove water) and that it is toxic than table and that's why it's used to kill all the cockroaches in our kitchens.

Water is life

The enemy of fungus is dryness. If your skin is dry, the fungus can not live. An inexpensive, effective and time tested remedy for fighting fungal infections is Boric acid powder. Why? Because Boric acid powder will dehydrate (remove water) and that it is less toxic than table salt and that's why it's used to kill all the yeasts and fungi that lives on the skin.

Preparation

Mix 2 tablespoons Boric acid powder with 1 cup wheat flour. Shake on any area with a fungal rash. Some fungal infections or skin rashes may take one to two weeks to heal.

Wash the affected areas everyday with soap, warm water and a washcloth. Make sure to lather up the wash cloth very liberally with soap, then wash, getting in between your toes especially. It is very important to be clean to keep at bay these bacteria that bring foot odor.

Body oils, lotions and lip balms all trap in moisture and the results is fungal infection contrary to what you may think they are cure for dry skin and fungal infection. Fungus is curable. It may require medical treatment but try this Boric acid powder to stop your fungus without incurring medical bills.

I love when I read about something I didn't know. Sounds like boric acid would be a good thing to keep in the house. I guess you would find it in the drugstore???

Thank you Karen. Yes, you should be able to get boric acid powder in almost every drugstore at a price of about a dollar for 250g. You can also substitute wheat floor with starch.

Boric Acid is not sold in Drug stores anymore, anyway not to my knowledge. I tried to buy some and no drug store stocks it anymore. It's been taken off of the shelf. Many products use boric acid for cures and now they don't want to have it that handy. I bought some on the internet. It use to be very inexpensive however now it not as cheap as it use to be. Good luck. It does work, it's even in eye drops, however in very low doses.

Boric Acid can be found at Home Depot or Lowes. I use it for bugs as I live in Florida. Works great

Try 20-Mule Team Borax (Na2B4O7·10H2O). Much better to the human body than boric acid but just as powerful against fungus, cockroaches, ants. Also good as a food and water preservative. Do your own research to learn more. Can be found at walmart and grocery stores as a cleaner/detergent but as 101 other uses. Read the ingredients to make sure it's pure Borax decahydrate before using on food and water. Look for Borax pentahydrate Na2B4O7·5H2O if you can. It dissolve easier than the decahydrate and clumps less.

Also, DO NOT use boric acid on food and water. Only borax (sodium borate) (Na2B4O7·10H2O) can be safely added to food and water.
