The battle of fungus & how to win it!
The wide world of fungus infections include athlete's foot, jock itch, and candida infection of the skin, nails, mouth, throat, genital areas, bronchi or lungs.
The battle of fungus infections is fought on three fronts -- inside, outside and prevention of re-occurrences.
Inside - Pau D'Arco, a South American herb, eliminates fungi from the body.
Outside - Thyme is a natural fungus eliminator. Sprinkle thyme on your feet, or make a tea with it and use it as a sponge bath. Tea Tree Oil is a natural external fungus eliminator that can be added to your shampoo, your shower gel and your bathwater.
Re-occurrences - Fungal spores can survive on your clothing, socks, underwear, towels, facecloths, shoes, bedlinen, hats, and any surface that you have come in contact with. Clothing, socks, udnerwear, towels, facecloths, bedlinen, anything that can be washed needs to be put in the washing machine with 1/4 cup of bleach eliminate the spores. One pail of water with 1 tablespoon of bleach and a soft microfibre cloth come in handy.....wipe out inside of shoes, showerstalls, all floor surfaces, carpets as well.....
When it comes to fungal infections, your best line of defense is internal + external + prevention of re-occurence.
