BEST Treatments for Toenail Fungus would NOT Include Cornmeal Mush!!

I was shocked recently to read in the Chicago Tribune that "Cornmeal Mush" may help "cure" toenail fungus!  This article suggests soaking your cornmeal for an hour then soaking your feet for an hour.  While I have heard MANY home remedies, this is the first I have heard that cornmeal has antifungal properties!
Fungus residing in the toenails is very difficult to "cure" because there are so many factors that contribute to its existence and infection - its not so easy to just say the infection developed because of a pedicure.  While pedicures can, and often do, directly cause fungus to be seated within a toenail, there are many other factors that make treating fungus challenging. 

It is important to treat toenail fungus, known as onychomycosis, because it can spread to other nails, worsen in an isolated nail, cause deformity of the affected nails and cause a fungal infection in the skin.  Once you have decided to treat the nail, you need to be committed as persistence is very important.  Despite what the pharmaceuticals would have you believe, there is no "magic pill" that rids you of fungus permanently. The best defense we have now is a combination of treatments which includes laser treatments, topical treatments, treatments and possibly including short term oral antifungal treatments. 

Not everyone is ready to treat their fungal nails and while I am a podiatric physician I am also a woman who understands that decision!  There are certain times when a pedicure is a must!  Many podiatrists now offer a cosmetic temporary solution that will allow you to show off your pedicure without worry that your toes will be a source of embarrassment.   I have recently began using KeryFlex which will transform your ugly nails (whether there is fungus in them or not) to a normal looking nail that will last for weeks.  KeryFlex will also help stop the spread of the disease as it creates a seal over the fungal nail.

Deciding when and how to treat your onychomycosis is a decision you should make with your podiatrist.  While home remedies may show improvement in some individuals, the most effective and direct treatments should have research behind them and clinical results.  I think most podiatrists would agree - leave the cornmeal at the breakfast table and bring your feet to us!

  1. I really, really like toenail fungus treatment. Though toenail fungus treatment is a favorites topic of discussion amongst monarchs, presidents and dictators, it is impossible to overestimate its impact on modern thought. It still has the power to shock the easily lead, many of whom fail to comprehend the full scope of toenail fungus treatment. Relax, sit back and gasp as I display the rich tapestries of toenail fungus treatment.

  3. Cornmeal when mixed with water is very effective at removing dead skin. Direct anti-bacterial or anti-fungal properties are unproven. What is clear however is conditions benefited by the removal of dead skin are benefited by wet cornmeal treatments. Toenail fungus is killed by the presence of oxygen in the air. Debris under the toenail not only feeds the fungus but provides a low oxygen environment for it to thrive. Cornmeal baths removes the debris and softens the nail effectively removing the food source and increasing oxygen levels under the nail. By no means is this a cure but it does help the condition.

  4. Toenail fungus is a very common problem and if it left it left untreated then it can cause splitting, cracking and completely loss of toenail. But it is curable natural home remedies are really effective. The apple cider vinegar is helpful as it is mildly acidic and helps to prevent fungus. Oil of Oregano is also helpful as it has the antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic properties.

  7. So for a month I've been putting Vicks all over my big toenails with a little improvement. My right toenail has a new nail growing under it. I read about the cornmeal method. I also read that there are different kinds of toenail fungus and to try different methods. I actually filled a pan with dry cornmeal and buried my feet in it. Kept them under the dry cornmeal for over an hour. I also sprinkled cornmeal in my shoes too. I used Vicks again on my tonails and sprinkled cornmeal and covered with bandaids. Soaking in dry cornmeal worked the best. My toenail on my right foot just fail off! I'm going to keep doing this, until I'm sure the fungus is completely gone. Very happy with this method, it worked for me. Plus, it made the skin on my feet super soft.

  10. Corn meal has impressive antifungal properties. Corn naturally contains a form of fungus that doesn’t affect the human beings but is very deadly to Candida, the fungus that most commonly causes infections in human beings. Mix some corn meal in water in a container that can also accommodate your feet and put your feet in that mixture for about half an hour. Repeat the treatment as often as you might like.

  11. Way to go, Dr. Reid. You've never heard of it before, therefore you can state unequivocally that it doesn't work. Lucky you that you have already heard of everything in the world! Those of us who are gardeners have a common knowledge that if we get yellow leaves on a photinia, brown patches in St. Augustine grass or algae in pond or water features, a person doesn't have to use synthetic fungicides or heavy metal products like copper sulfate. Cornmeal, which is now available from the garden centers and feed stores in 25 pound bags, controls diseases as well or better than any of the more toxic chemical fungicides. (rust on hollyhock leaves, too) Now try googling for "cornmeal toe nail fungus" and see if you really have heard of everything already or not.

  15. I hate to say this, but I do say this with respect to all...

    I am a holistic person these days.. I have studied so much to get this far because I was sick, and doctors did nothing as I wasted bed ridden using bathroom in my panties..

    All that's behind me now, still have some serious health issues under control more now... Not bed ridden, using bathroom now instead of my panties, skin is healing swelling is almost non x-sistant, using all my parts pain free most of the time, teaching myself medicine for years now, using home medicine...

    Corn meal I use as a soak for may healig issues, mold, yeast, gout, rises on the skin, it works to clear fungus, many people I know have tried it, seeing their issues show promise on first time use.. Including myself.. I suffered with toe nail fungus at the age of % from havig a skillet dropped on oe big toe, it spread to all my toe nails and tried to go to finger ails too, and was spreading through my whole body with canndidas.. Which yeast infections are the underlining cause of infection after an injury happens i this case with me... As a child my mother struggled poor ly with droctors to treat my toe nails.. As I got older, I too struggled with doctors to treat my toe nails and cure them, also with over the counter medicatios, and thousands of dollars to fix my toe nails... Yet, No resaults, not even looking better taking lots of time with everything tried, as it takes time for a clear nail to grow in and the infection has been there for years.. Meaning it will not be gone over night it will take time to rid it...

    Used corn meal soak, first use showed improvement right off, at age 57, having thick brittal risen dark brownish green yellow colored toe nails, it was so disgusting to me... This this fugus would come out from uder and over whole nail bed and cause sores smell awful, and could barely ware shoes since I was a child, my foot skin was real rough, scaly like and bumpy even on the bottom of my feet..

    Using corn meal was the only thing that worked to start the repair of my toe nail...My feet really needed this for years, and would have not been that bad if doctors took care of me as a child, they did not, and even as a grown up.. I did, and still do now, healthier then I have ever been in my life today because of me, no doctor ever...

    No core meal is not a pesticide, but when you soak it, you activate the good bacteria in it, that feeds on bad bacteria, like mold, yeast, fungus period.. This is how it works to heal you, gound, plants, and worms it kills getting stuck in the digestive track of the worms and it dies.. So it is good for some micro organisms, viruses, and fugus for sure... Maybe the other way to fix things in the body today is balanceing our flora inside and outside for good health, as our bodies, and invirerments are full of chemicals that do not get rid of germ, or kill anything, but the planet and all in the planet.. This is the truth! The real practice of medicine today is found to be all natural and safe to use.. Natural Medicine works better also because its resident frequency is higher then the desease its self, and this is what brings back control, and kills desease... Frequency is the new moder way of use in medicine with the purest of all natural subtances from the Earth, these micro organisms can not adapt to this as they do the chemicals, and this is why it will always work, cause we are electric and organic, 2 in one, body, and spirit...

  17. Irrespective of receiving daily oral or future in jectable depot therapies, these require health care visits for medication and monitoring of safety and response. If patients are treated early enough, before a lot of immune system damage has occurred, life expectancy is close to normal, as long as they remain on successful treatment. However, when patients stop therapy, virus rebounds to high levels in most patients, sometimes associated with severe illness because I have gone through this and even an increased risk of death. The aim of “cure”is ongoing but I still do believe my government made millions of ARV drugs instead of finding a cure. for ongoing therapy and monitoring. ARV alone cannot cure HIV as among the cells that are infected are very long-living CD4 memory cells and possibly other cells that act as long-term reservoirs. HIV can hide in these cells without being detected by the body’s immune system. Therefore even when ART completely blocks subsequent rounds of infection of cells, reservoirs that have been infected before therapy initiation persist and from these reservoirs HIV rebounds if therapy is stopped. “Cure” could either mean an eradication cure, which means to completely rid the body of reservoir virus or a functional HIV cure, where HIV may remain in reservoir cells but rebound to high levels is prevented after therapy interruption.Dr JAMES Herbal Medicine makes me believes there is a hope for people suffering from ACUTE MYELOFIBROSIS, ALZHEIMER's symptoms, BREAST CANCER, DIABETES, HAIR LOSS AND HAIR TREATMENT, KIDNEY DISEASES, LEUKEMIA, MYELOID LEUKEMIA, STEM CELL TREATMENT,Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Cancer,Scoliosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone Toxicity
