With fungal nails taking on average 6-10 months to fully grow out and become healthy, there is no time to waste and no time like the present to get started! But be sure to check out common mistakes to avoid below, to ensure you don't waste any time and achieve successful and fastest possible regeneration of fungal nails on fingers or toes...
Mistake 1: Not Taking Care Of The Skin Around Fungal Nails
As we have learned from leading Podiatrist and Author of The Big Book Of Nail Diseases, Anke Niederau: there is no nail fungus without skin fungus! If you have fungal toe nails, shoes are often a common cause for reinfection. This is because you are continually going back into them with your fungal nails, and the warm, moist climate provides a perfect breeding ground for the fungi to develop. Now most people won't (and shouldn't have to!) throw away their shoes just because they have a fungal infection...
Therefore, Spirularin solutions offer a more holistic approach: and Spirularin NS Nail Serum should be combined with the Spirularin Skin Gel. Reapply the skin gel throughout the day to keep hands and/or feet protected against (re-)infections and ensure fastest results.
Spirularin Skin Gel contains the unique Spiralin microalgae extract with naturally active, clinically proven antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, as well as cell-regenerative properties. Apart from intense skin-hydration, it provides active protection against a broad range of microbes.
Question: Do I have to disinfect my shoes?
Answer: Not with Spirularin. While it is a good idea to wash or replace shoes if possible, if you are using Spirularin Skin Gel in combination with Spirularin NS Nail Serum as recommended, the entire foot is protected against reinfection, even if you pop back into shoes or walk across old carpets.
Not only does the nail serum itself help restore the nails' natural protection barrier, but the skin gel further takes care of any fungal, yeast or bacterial infections on the skin of hands or feet.
Not Protecting Other Household Members
Remember, fungal nails are contagious and the microscopic spores of fungi are all around us and can survive in carpets for literally years. So especially if you are treating fungal toe nails and share your home (carpets, rugs, shower) or bed (sheets, bedding) with anybody else, it is a good idea to get them using a proactive protection such as Spirularin Skin Gel on their feet and hands too.
Consider everything which comes in contact with your fungal finger or toenails (i.e. gloves, socks, bedding, towels, bath mats etc.). To kill the spores – which may still be hiding in these materials, contributing to a reinfection of your skin or nails – it helps to machine wash these items with 60 Degrees Celsius – a temperature which kills most microbes (e.g. bacteria, fungus).
Mistake 3: Not Boosting Your Overall Immunity
Trauma is a common cause for fungal nail infections (e.g. something fell on your toe, you squashed a finger nail, or wear shoes or socks which are too tight). However, the fact that one person contracts a fungal infection, while the next person doesn't, is usually due to a weakened immune system. Therefore, any holistic approach to regenerating fungal nails successfully, should also include boosting immunity e.g. through a balanced diet, getting enough sunshine/vitamin D, and regular, gentle exercise, and maybe starting a good probiotic.
For a naturally active and proven immunity & antioxidant boost, try adding a cup/bowl of KOSHO Byuti Organic Matcha Tea to your daily morning routine. Apart from highest levels of antioxidants and essential vitamins, matcha also provides a calm, sustained energy boost throughout the day (no more coffee-jitters!)
Mistake 4: Not Seeing A Professional
Especially if you suffer from a fungal toe nail infection, we recommend a visit to the Podiatrist (foot/lower limb doctor). While fungal nail regeneration with Spirularin NS Nail Serum at home works, it is still a good idea to visit a professional (especially if you aren't noticing improvements after your first bottle of nail serum). Podiatrists can test, that it is in fact a fungal infection you are dealing with, not another kind of nail condition.
Mistake 5: Leaving Nail Polish On Too Long
It's understandable you prefer to hide and cover up any unsightly nails for special occasions. However the Spirularin NS Nail Serum was specifically formulated to absorb through the nail plate and into the nail bed to target the fungal infection at its (most common) source. Unfortunately Spirularin NS Nail Serum cannot penetrate through regular nail polish and lacquers as these seal off the nails. This is not only bad for nails as it causes them to become weak and discoloured, but also won't allow your nail regeneration with the nail serum to continue. So please remove your nail polish again ASAP.
In a Nutshell:
Key To Successful Fungal Nail Regeneration
There are two key points to note for fastest, successful results with fungal nail regeneration:
- Eliminating as many sources of reinfection as possible
- Restoring the nails' & skin's natural protection barrier while the fungus is being killed
With nail laser, oral fungicides, or conventional/pharmaceutical topical fungal nail treatments, no attention is paid to restoring the nails' natural protection barrier, or the skin surrounding damaged or fungal infected nails. This often results in a never-ending cycle of reinfection. To discover how Spirularin NS Nail Serum works differently - and naturally - also check out this post.
