The process I’ve reported on is a bit tedious and time-consuming, and uses up a LOT of colloidal silver. But it works like a charm if you stick with it.
Fortunately, a member of my Colloidal Silver Secrets Group on Facebook (join here; it’s FREE) named Diane has just reported a much simpler, quicker and more efficient way to heal toenail fungus using colloidal silver.
First, the Old Method
Usually, a person using the old method would pour a significant amount of colloidal silver (as much as one full quart) into a square glass baking pan, and then soak the entire foot with the infected nail in the silver solution for as many as 20 to 30 minutes a day.
This might go on daily, for as long as a month. And it can be quite boring, so get a good book out, or set your glass baking pan down in front of your couch so you can watch TV while soaking your foot and infected nails.
Generally, if you’re consistent about it, within three or four weeks you’ll start seeing nice, shiny new pink toenail starting to grow in at the base of the toenail. And as it gradually grows in, you simply trim off the old, greenish-gray outer infected nail as it grows out.
While you only need to do the nightly colloidal silver soaks for about a month, it will take many months – sometimes up to a full year -- for the toenail to grow out fully to the point at which you can finally get all of the ugly, greenish infected nail clipped off.
So as your nails grow, you simply clip off the old discolored and disfigured nail, and allow the bright shiny pink new, infection-free nail to grow in, in its place.
Of course, the problem with this method – besides how time-consuming it is – is that you have to use such a large amount of colloidal silver each night in your foot soak…as much as one full quart, depending upon the size of your foot and the size of the glass baking pan you use.
So curing toenail fungus with colloidal silver can be an expensive proposition, unless of course you’re wealthy, and have nothing better to do with your money than spend it on expensive commercial colloidal silver preparations costing between $20 to $30 for a tiny 4 ounce bottle!
Of course, if you own a high-quality home colloidal silver generator (see one, here), you can make all of the fresh, pure colloidal silver you’ll ever need, any time you need, it, for less than 36 cents a quart.
So owners of colloidal silver generators find this method of curing toenail fungus to be very reasonable, in terms of cost.
Best yet, thanks to the infection-fighting power of the colloidal silver, these toe nail infections rarely re-occur. The colloidal silver seems to be a permanent solution!
Out With the Old,
In With the New Method!
But the new method Diane wrote me about is much easier…faster…more effective… and far less expensive, because you use so much less colloidal silver. In fact, all you do is soak a cotton ball in it each night and apply it to your toe!
Here’s how it’s done, in Diane’s own words. She wrote:
“Steve, I cleared up my toenail fungus using colloidal silver, and documented the progress with “before” and “after” photos ... it was pretty ugly…but I am fungus-free now!
I was using home-made 8-10 ppm colloidal silver. Here’s how I did it:
First, I filed my thick, discolored and disfigured fungal-infested nail down a little bit with a nail file.
Then I put a cotton ball soaked in colloidal silver directly on top of the infected toenail, and used a homemade “toe condom” (i.e., a finger cut off from a rubber surgeon’s glove) to cover the toe and hold the wet cotton ball firmly in place overnight. (See photos below -- ED)
I did this each night for only 2 weeks. Then I stopped, and simply let the nail start growing out, clipping off the old infected nail as the new nail grew in.
Amazingly, over the next few months as new nail grew back in, and as I clipped off the old greenish-gray nail as it grew out, I saw nice, healthy and pink nail coming in. The infection had been killed.
Seven months later, the awful greenish fungal infected nail was completely gone. And I’ve had NO reoccurrence of the infection whatsoever!”
I wrote back and asked Diane if she would share some of her “before and after” photos, elaborate a bit on her method, and allow me to publish her story. And she agreed.
Before and After
This particular infection, known as onychomycosis, is caused by a group of fungi called dermatophytes.
These fungal pathogens are harmful because as they grow they feed on the keratin that makes up the surface of the toe nail, causing disfiguration and discoloration, and sometimes even infecting the surrounding tissues.
In essence the fungus becomes deeply “imbedded” in, under and around the nail, which is one reason why it’s so difficult to cure without expensive prescription medications like Lamisil that can potentially cause liver damage.
-- and Diane has achieved what most prescription anti-fungal drugs simply can’t achieve in twice the time.
And best yet, there’s been no re-occurrence of the fungus!
How Did She Do It?
How’d Diane do it? It’s quite simple, really.
Here’s her step-by-step instructions, with illustrative photos she has graciously provided:
First, choose a finger on a rubber surgical glove that will easily fit over the infected toe; then start by filing the top of the infected nail lightly with a standard nail file.
Second, cut off the appropriate glove finger in order to make a “toe condom”; this will be used to cover the toe and the cotton ball that will be soaked in colloidal silver and set on top of the infected nail.
Third, soak a small cotton ball with 8-10 ppm colloidal silver.
Fourth, place the wet cotton ball on top of the infected toe nail.
Fifth, cover the entire toe and cotton ball with the “toe condom” and sleep with it, leaving it on all night; repeat this procedure each night for 2 weeks.
Be sure to use a nail file to lightly file the nail at the start of this process, and from time to time during the two week period the colloidal silver is being used, so it can more easily soak into the nail and surrounding tissues and get to the fungus.
The “toe condom” helps keep the cotton ball moist and in place. (And it also keeps the bed from getting wet.) Warning: The toe will appear to be a bit “shriveled” after sleeping with it wet overnight.
Here’s a photo of Diane’s shriveled toe after her first night of treatment (below):
And here’s the same toe today (below):
As you can see, the end result is nice, beautiful, infection-free toes…and the knowledge that if such a thing ever happens again, you’ll know exactly how to deal with it.
Old v/s New
Whether you choose to use the old-fashioned method with the glass cake pan, or Diane’s simple, time-saving, money-saving method with the soaked cotton ball and the “toe condom” –
-- there’s simply no reason for you to have to put up with toenail fungus any longer.
And by the way, colloidal silver works just as well for fingernail fungus.
So, if you’re plagued by nail fungus, give Diane’s simple method a try.
