About Nail Fungus

Fungal infection of the nail apparatus is most commonly caused by dermatophytes. The likelihood of nail invasion by fungi increases with decreased vascular supply (i.e. increasing age, chronic venous insufficiency, peripheral arterial disease, diabetes, inactivity).

Treatments: My Approach

My holistic treatment approach to fungal infections of the nails focuses on improving immune function through diet changes, herbs, nutritional supplements, and lifestyle modifications. It is also important to address underlying diseases which compromise the vascular supply to the peripheral tissues. Topical formulations can be adjunctively helpful in the healing process.
