Treating and Preventing Foot Fungus Infections Naturally With Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt

Treating and Preventing Foot Fungus Infections Naturally With Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt

It's itchy, uncomfortable and contagious. foot fungus, commonly known as Athlete's Foot, is caused by the Ringworm Fungi.(1) An estimated 70% of Americans experience the itching, burning and redness associated with athlete's foot,(2) though for some, it can be so mild they won't even know they have the infection!


Causes and Symptoms of Foot Fungus

Fungus thrives in wet, moist, warm and humid environments such as gyms, pools, and saunas - excellent places to pick up athletes foot. As a preventative measure, you can slip on a pair of flip-flops or any other footwear you don't mind getting wet, to act as a barrier between your feet and any possible fungus.

Three common types of foot fungus:

  1. Mocassin - Bottom of foot/feet
  2. Interdigital - Between the toes or the webbing of the foot
  3. Vesicular - Fluid-filled blisters on the feet 


Treating Foot Fungus Infections

The standard Western medicine treatment for foot fungus is miconazole nitrate cream at a concentration of 2%.(3) This medicine works by inhibiting the synthesis of ergosterol, a key component of the fungi cell wall.(4) Depletion of ergosterol in the fungal membrane disrupts the fungal growth. Unfortunately, the miconazole cream can be particularly troublesome because by inhibiting ergosterol, a provitamin which converts to vitamin D, (known to determine moods and sleep patterns), it kills the fungi but it plays havoc with your sense of well-being.(5) In other words, sometimes the cure is worse than the cause!

Foot fungus is caused by a fungal infection. The best way to “treat” this condition is by enhancing the body’s immune system with the 84 trace minerals found in Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt. Iron supplementation is thought to increase immune function (this effect is probably tied to iron’s role in hemoglobin formation). Both chlorine and copper are being investigated for their ability to increase the immune response of the body but the exact mechanisms for how this is achieved remain a mystery.

Your body will respond so much better using our Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt. By combining some salt and water, you can create a paste that can be applied to the affected areas. You could also use a brine solution and soak the affected areas.  Salt helps to kill fungus because it tends to draw out moisture. Remember, salt controls the osmosis process inside our bodies via this same mechanism. Dryness is the enemy of fungi. Without a moist environment, the fungus cannot live. 

Treatment with Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt deprives the infection of an essential element of survival - water - it does 99.9% of the infection-clearing for you, leaving your immune system to make quick work of the unwanted invaders.

Using salt for foot fungus also has another advantage in that it does not matter if excess salt gets absorbed into your blood stream; your body needs it anyway. Yes, there are people out there who eat too much salt, but that's iodine-filled (white) table salt they are talking about. Table salt is lifeless and a drain on your body's water resources whereas Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt is full of life energy and actually helps to restore your body's natural balance of fluids.

Salt for foot fungus is a good treatment option for a good reason: it has antibacterial and antiviral properties. Although that might sound the same as an antibiotic, it's not. Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt gets its antibacterial properties from the osmosis effect: salt expands bacteria cell walls and causes them to bloat. The more bloated the bacteria are, the easier it is for your body's white blood cells to destroy them. Prescription antibiotics work by seeking out any and all living bacteria in your body and destroying them, even the good bacteria. The next time you have itchy, burning feet remember that salt is a healthy, natural treatment for foot fungus. Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt will have your feet dancing in no time!

My feet are very dry and my heels often crack and cause an extreme amount of discomfort. Needless to say, I'm always on the lookout for products that will give me some relief. Well, I definitely found one with your Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt Brick.

Himalayan Salt is truly effective - after just a couple soaks, I noticed my skin was definitely getting softer which made it much easier to rub away some of my calluses. I had a couple of painful cracks and they're looking and feeling much better already. When I bathe my entire body with the Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt Brick in the tub, it leaves me refreshed and rejuvenated.


“Great For A Good Soak Or Foul Feet” 
Jen Horton of Orange Grove, California
Verified Purchaser on 1/16Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt Review

The Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt Brick was a blessing for my tired feet! I added this to a hot tub of water and soaked my feet - the aches and pains just disappeared. You do not need to dissolve too much of the brick for a nice foot soak so the brick will last about 10 applications. I also use some of the brick for a very soothing and relaxing bath.

My son had a bout of athletes foot so I had him soak his feet in this for a few nights and it cleared his feet right up. This was an excellent addition to our healing remedies and I plan to purchase several more for myself and as gifts for others.


“Great For Moms and Daughters Alike”
Julie Higgins of Dover, Massachusetts
Verified Purchaser on 5/15 Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt Review

I was excited to try your Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt Brick for tired and aching feet. Recently, I have been unable to get a much-needed pedicure due to time and financial constraints. I have extremely dry, rough, cracked skin around my toes and on the heels of my feet - it snags my socks! I also have yellowing in my toenails which are usually caused by a fungus.

Your Natural Home Cures Himalayan Crystal Salt came right in time! The water wasn't slimy feeling as it has been with other soaks I have tried. After soaking my feet for 20 minutes, my feet felt softer and my foot odor was neutralized. After repeated use, my toenails started to improve in strength and color and my rough spots started to dissipate. I love this product. I let my daughter try it and she is reporting the same results.
