Crystal Flush Toenail Fungus System – Experts Explain Prevention and Treatment

Toenail fungus is notoriously difficult to treat due to the high volume of treatments available that just don’t work. From messy, ineffective topical creams that can be found at the grocery store to months-long courses of prescription medications that cause dangerous side effects, finding relief from the pain and embarrassment of fungal nail infection can feel impossible.

Continue reading to learn about natural ingredients that are backed by scientific evidence to treat toenail fungus.

What Causes Toenail Fungus?

Understanding the effectiveness of toenail fungus treatments that are available to you is easier when you understand what causes toenail fungus in the first place.

The most common culprit behind toenail fungus is dermatophyte. When it grows in excess on the external surface of the nail, dermatophyte fungi eat away at the nail, causing yellowing, crumbling, white spots, ridges, and even pain or sensitivity. Dermatophyte and other infection-causing fungi thrive in moist, warm environments, such as sweaty close-toed shoes.

Another common fungus that leads to onychomycosis is candida albicans. Candida albicans naturally occurs in many people’s bodies, particularly in the intestinal tract. When in balance with the other microorganisms in the digestive system, candida is harmless. However, an overgrowth of candida albicans can lead to a variety of different infections, including toenail fungus. For this reason, it is important to address both internal and external causes of fungal nail infection when selecting a treatment.

Natural Ingredients for Treating Toenail Fungus

Many prescription medications that doctors prescribe to treat toenail fungus produce painful side effects, including stomach unrest and even jaundice. Additionally, they can take multiple courses and extended periods of time to even begin showing their effects.

On the other hand, full treatment systems that combine the benefits of multiple natural ingredients address fungal infections without side effects. While many people are skeptical of treatments containing natural ingredients, scientific research has demonstrated the effectiveness of the following compounds in treating onychomycosis.

Tea tree oil.

Tea tree oil is a naturally occurring treatment that comes from steaming the leaves of the Australian tea tree. Tea tree oil is used for a variety of applications due to its antibacterial and antifungal properties. According to Mayo Clinic, tea tree oil is safe for topical application and can be used to treat acne, dandruff, head lice, athlete’s foot, and toenail fungus (1).

Lavender oil

Lavender oil is anti-inflammatory as well as antimicrobial, allowing it to soothe the pain and irritation associated with toenail fungus. Lavender oil has been shown to decrease the likelihood of reinfection and combat toenail fungus through its antifungal effects (2). When applied topically, lavender oil moisturizes the dry, cracked skin and nail surface, providing symptomatic relief. Lavender oil also has antioxidant properties, making it excellent for the skin and nails overall.

Caprylic acid.

Caprylic acid is one of many beneficial compounds found in coconut oil. Studies have shown that caprylic acid on its own is effective in treating some candida infections. While the exact mechanism behind its effectiveness is not yet known, scientists believe that the medium-chain fatty acid breaks down the membranes of candida cells, helping to curb infections (3).

Additionally, caprylic acid has been shown to be effective in treating digestive disorders. By minimizing digestive unrest and balancing intestinal microfauna, caprylic acid can help combat candida overgrowth. These benefits are particularly salient when used in combination with other treatments for candida infections.

Citronella oil.

Citronella, commonly known as lemongrass, is a natural fungicide. According to Healthline (4), citronella oil has been tested against specific, infection-causing fungi and shown to be effective. Citronella is also used to treat other parasitic infections and speed up the healing of wounds, making it an effective choice in toenail fungus cases where the nail has been injured or the fungus itself has caused the skin to break.

Black walnut.

Black walnuts are used as a treatment for intestinal parasites, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other digestive and cardiovascular issues, in addition to effectively treating fungal infections including oral thrush and toenail fungus. Black walnuts contain a variety of important minerals, including potassium and magnesium, as well as the essential fatty acids linoleic acid, oleic acid, palmitic acid, and stearic acid (5).

How to Avoid Toenail Fungus Reinfection

First and foremost, it is important to note that if the treatment you are using is not entirely effective, what appears to be reinfection might just be temporary symptom relief followed by their full return. However, once you have successfully treated your toenail fungus, follow these tips to prevent reinfection:

  • Be sure to wash your feet regularly, and always dry them thoroughly after doing so.
  • Moisturizing your hands and feet after washing them, paying particular attention to the area around the cuticle and edges of the nail.
  • Always disinfect your nail clippers after use, and never share nail clippers with anyone else.
  • When cutting your nails, cut straight across and file down the edges.
  • Give your nails a rest from nail polish and artificial nails, which can trap moisture and fungus, as well as stop your nails from aerating sufficiently.
  • Do not walk around public showers, locker rooms, or pool areas barefoot. Instead, wear flip flops or slides to prevent yourself from picking up an infection.
  • Consider changing your socks throughout the day, particularly if you are prone to sweating. Wear socks made of pure cotton or another absorbent material to avoid excessive moisture in your shoes.
  • Give your feet a chance to breathe by sleeping barefoot if possible.
  • Choose shoes made of breathable materials.

How to Treat Toenail Fungus — A Full Treatment System Targeting External and Internal Causes of Onychomycosis

If you have a fungal toenail infection, it is likely that over-the-counter and even prescription medications have not been effective, or have taken multiple courses just to start providing relief. Additionally, the majority of over-the-counter treatments involve applying messy creams for months before seeing any results, which is impractical for most people. Oral prescription medications are prone to causing unpleasant or even dangerous side effects such as stomach unrest or jaundice, while DIY treatments are rarely effective.

Crystal Flush’s 2-step treatment system, containing a clinically proven FDA-Approved active ingredient, is the only toe fungus treatment available that targets both external and internal causes of toe fungus, leading to the restoration of healthy toenails in as little as thirty days.

Step 1, the antifungal serum, contains one of the most potent FDA-approved antifungal agents available. With two applications per day, the serum penetrates the nail bed to destroy the fungal infection at its root.

Step 2, Crystal Flush Balance, uses an all-natural blend of 13 ingredients to balance the ecosystem in your gut and get candida overgrowth under control, thus preventing toenail fungal infection from the inside.
