Beat Toenail Fungus With Colloidal Silver

 I recently received an interesting report from a member of my Colloidal Silver Secrets Group on Facebook who’s invented a unique, and relatively quick and easy way to cure a nasty case of toenail fungus using colloidal silver.

Now, there’s no reason whatsoever to live with toenail fungus, thanks to this safe, easy and effective method!

I’ve reported on colloidal silver being used to heal toenail fungus, both in my book, The Ultimate Colloidal Silver Manual, and in my 60-minute DVD, the Colloidal Silver Secrets Video.

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

First, here are before and after photos of her infected toes:

BEFORE: You can see that the nails on the big toes are terribly distorted and discolored with thick greenish fungal growth.

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.

AFTER: Here’s the “After” photo, seven months later. As you can see the end result is – a complete cure!

Only two weeks of colloidal silver treatment, in a most unique fashion (see below for full explanation), using safe, simple, all-natural colloidal silver –

-- 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.

Just to let you know I have had toenail fungus problems on both of my big toes for the last 20 years. I have been trying to address this over the past 8 years. Vinegar, Hyrdrogen Peroxide, a spore treatment and a rather nasty smelling cream from NZ which had manuka oil in it have all failed. I'm 2 weeks in to the CS protocol you have suggested and I don't want to speak to soon but it appears to be working. Due to the severity of the infection I am going to do it for 4 weeks and I'll post back to let you know how it goes. Thanks for the tip!

Another update, the fungus is almost gone after 4 weeks of the treatment with CS described above. I plan to keep adding drops of CS morning and night until it's completely clear. What a great tip for what I thought was an uncurable condition.
Many Thanks!

Steve Barwick said...

Thanks so much for the update, Scott...this is great news and I'm glad you're on your way to being infection-free!

Just a final update for you, toenail fungus now completely clear. Lots of other conditions in the body also subsiding as a result of it. Many thanks for the brill tip, I am spreading the word and hopefully more will do the same!!

Very impressive! I wanna give this a try.

Suzy said...

What type of surgical glove? Ones w/o powder or with powder. Rubber is equal to latex, right? Can you suggest what type to buy and where? Thanks. Suzy

Steve Barwick said...

Suzy, personally I'd use one without powder. That way there's nothing to interfere with the effectiveness of the colloidal silver.

Google the phrase "finger condom" and you'll find what appear to me to be the perfect product for this particular regimen.

I am trying your newer method for treating a finger nail fungus. I am on day 2. Do I need to do anything special with the nail during the day? I am using the glove finger to keep the nail from getting wet or dirty throughout the day as well.

Thanks for such helpful information!

christarella said...

would you recommend keeping the nail covered throughout the day or is it just the treatment at night?

thanks for the helpful information!

Christarella and Anonymous:

The young lady, Diane, who developed this protocol says she only used it at night. I don't think you need to do anything special during the day. Just use the protocol at night.

I've read that using gloves for too long or too often, actually helps develop fungus. I think that's how I got it. I swould suggest only usi g it overnight.

I began using colloidal silver 2 weeks ago. Haven't seen anything dramatic. Although this morning I had some nail peeling on 2 toes. Is it okay to apply longer than 2 weeks. I've used other products and they really irritated the skin around the nail. I'd appreciate any input.

Hi Anonymous,

I assume you mean you're using the colloidal silver topically, on your nails. And I notice you didn't say what kind of colloidal silver you're using, or what concentration (i.e., ppm).

I'm not a doctor, so I can't speak directly to your situation. But I've known plenty of other people who have used colloidal silver topically on their nails for longer than two weeks. And they have not described that condition happening to me.

However, the toenail peeling bothers me. I've never heard of that happening. It makes me wonder if the liquid silver is too strong, and thus too harsh for your particular nails.

If you're using the "toenail condom" technique described in the article, in which the silver is left in contact with the nails all night, maybe it's keeping the silver in contact with your nails too long. I don't know. As an alternative, you might try simply soaking your toenails in colloidal silver for only 20 or 30 minutes a night, instead of using the "toenail condom" technique.

I've had readers in the past who have told me they've soaked their feet in colloidal silver nightly for 20 minutes or so, for up to a month or even longer to successfully deal with toenail fungus, and they never mentioned toenail peeling.

Another thought: you might be better off using a colloidal silver gel product on your nails, instead of liquid colloidal silver. There are some good ones available on, such as ASAP Ultimate Skin & Body Care Gel (contains 24 ppm colloidal silver).

As for not noticing any effects after two weeks of usage, please re-read Diane's comments in the article. She said after using the "toe condom and silver" technique for two weeks, she then stopped, and simply trimmed her toenails as they grew out. And after several months of trimming her toenails, she could see the new toenail growing in was "nice, healthy and pink." But it took a full seven months for the greenish nails to grow completely out, and be trimmed off enough, so that you now see only nice, fresh, pink nail on all of her toes.

I notice the before-and-after photos of Diane's nails on this site are missing. I'll have to check into that. But you can see them at the following website where I have the same article posted:
