If you ever get that fungus that grows under the toenails, use Vicks Vapor rub. Put it all over your toes and between them too, don't stop there go ahead and rub it over your feet. Then put a pair of socks on and go to sleep. Do it every night for a week, every thing should be back to normal and your feet will be as soft as a baby's.
Our friends don't have to agree with me about everything and some that I hold very dear don't have to agree about anything, except where we are going to meet them for dinner.

I had that fungus, it was gross and my nails were disgusting. I thought it was "just the way is?". I tried all the remedies, nothing worked. On a visit to the doctor on an unrelated reason, the Dr. noticed my nails; he said that the fungus was emanating from inside my body. He prescribed something for me to take but I can't remember the name. I had to take it for a few months and he had to do two blood tests to check my liver??? He told me it would take about eleven months for my feet to return to normal.

The eleven months passed and low and behold, my feet were about as perfect as can be! My toes were all clear, shiny and fresh. The Athletes feet cleared up and my feet are now smooth and (sorry to say this out loud) soft.

If your nails start to become funky, see your doctor.

Ever since then, I have always taken care of my feet.

Good luck!

I have always taken care of my feet 'cause they are my fav. part of me. Also, because I am almost always barefoot, I naturally care for my feet more than most to protect them from harm, dirt and those dreaded fungi which you talk about.

I know it's been a while since this was said, but I wanted to comment on how well it actually works.

When teaching me Ninjutsu, my teacher told me that I should always have a full bottle of superglue in my car, at work, at home, in my SERE bag, and I should have one on my person if possible. I asked why and he told me that 'blood takes several minutes to clot, whereas superglue dries in a few seconds. If you want to finish the fight and live to see another day, you need to close wounds immediately.'

It's a great quick fix till you can get proper meds, and a great way to avoid having bandaids on your hands if you're doing close-up.


Now onto the subject of feet. . .
As much as I despise the marketing campaign, I'm Gellin'. The massaging gel insoles are awesome when you need to be on your feet all day.
Think inside the box. . . it's less crowded.

Since the thread has jogged my memory, my grandmother's doctor prescribed using superglue when her hands get cracked and start to bleed a bit. She had a serious problem with dry skin, and her's could just split - super glue was the recommended cure.

No Kidding. Super Glue was used as a military medical glue to close wounds on the battlefield in Vietnam. I know several people who have used it. A friend split his thumb open during a cruise ship gig and superglued it shut. There is not even a scar now.

Best,

Tim

Awesome isn't it!
People who knew me while I was growing up are always surprised by how few scars I have. It's thanks to superglue (I like to tell them that it's a "ninja thing" and they just wouldn't understand).

Funny story: When we started weapons training, my teacher and I both got minor cuts regularly. I always thought it was wierd that he simply passed his sword over a wound and it just didn't bleed. I asked him to teach me how to do it (assuming that it was some kind of A-Class technique). He told me that he'd be long since dead before I could master it.
After he died, he left me the sword. Upon close examination, I found syringe like device embedded in the handle. He had included instructions on how to fill the syringe with superglue and how to dispense it. He left me some other cool stuff, but that sword is probably my favorite piece.

Reflexology is for your body though not for your feet If I am right? Isn't it the basis that all the body is connected through pressure points in your hands and feet. I once had a quick demonstration of it by an old friend of the family. Very interesting.


Reflexology is based on the idea that different spots on the foot have a corresponding point on the human body. By applying pressure to a spot on the foot, it should have a positive effect on that part of the body. It's been around for about 100 years and is yet to be proven to have any real, lasting effect beyond the placebo effect.

Not that I don't like a good foot rub.

My feet are very sore at the moment. I roll my feet when I walk and I find that, as I get older, my shins and knees hurt a lot stopping me from jogging. I bought some inserts this morning and they help a lot!

Ever seen these things?

Adhesive foot pads soaked with vinegar. Yeah, that's definitely going to remove parasites from your blood stream.

Dustin - those things are BRILLIANT. I love how they don't do anything in particular just a vague sense of being awesome!

Even worse...You don't put it on your feet, but inside of a cut.
Works wonders.

So, just for the sake of asking...

What is the damage that the chemical causes when it seeps into your body and blood stream?
