  Toenail Fungus Cure

  It has been well documented that for centuries the olive leaf has offered a natural means to cure many ailments of the body. This can also be applied as a toenail fungus cure. Oleuropein(橄榄苦甙), the name established for the agent in the olive leaf extract, is the reason why the olive leaf provides many positive attributes. Olive trees require this substance to ensure that the plant itself is quite robust so as to withstand any harsh weather situations or attacks from insects. The antimicrobial(抗菌剂) characteristic of olive leaf extract comes about when the oleuropein breaks down in the body into a certain acid. This acid interferes with a pathogen's(病原体的) ability to replicate. A beneficial byproduct of this response is that a jump start is given to the immune system, which begins to fight bacteria and infection on its own as well.

  Studies today show that toenail fungus is a common, infectious condition that strikes many people. It typically occurs when the immune system is down and can be difficult to eliminate from your system once contracted. Scientifically is it referred to as onychomycosis(灰指甲) which accounts for a large proportion of nail disorders and can become rather unsightly and painful. It first begins as a discoloration of sorts or a light colored spot under the tip of the toenail which then runs to spread until the entire nail itself is noticeably yellow and rough completely yellow, thick and rough.

  Fortunately, toenail fungus doesn't have to be accepted as a part of life. Various treatments are now available on the market to eliminate the fungus that causes this unpleasant condition. Applying the natural healing potential of olive leaf oil has proven to be a safe and natural way rid of this difficult ailment. When purchasing olive leaf extract, it is important to purchase from a reputable company as the processing of the plant must be done carefully to ensure that the extract is potent and effective.

  When consuming olive leaf extract it is important to start slowly to prevent what is known as Herxheimer reaction or "die-off." However, this outcome only happens when large doses are taken quickly. If the treatment begins slowly and is gradually increased, this response to detoxification is rarely seen at all.

  It is a preferable course of treatment to ingest a small amount of capsules on a daily basis to relieve toenail fungus. It is necessary to complete this therapy until the fungus is completely extinguished. Even as the fungus dies and the toenail starts to clear it is critical to persist with the course until the infected portion has grown out altogether.

  This toenail fungus cure should be accompanied by future preventions so that this will not occur again by keeping toenails clean and hygienic and to always keep them protected when visiting public areas where toenails are exposed.
