Kick Athlete’s Foot To The Curb—Naturally

April 9, 2014

Beach FeetWith all the snow the country got this winter, this summer will probably be humid. While humidity is generally great for your skin, it can also increase your risk of athlete’s foot.

There are three key signs that you have athlete’s foot (which 70% of people will get at one point in their life): dryness, redness (especially sores), and blisters. The spaces between the toes are usually the most affected—fungus loves to grow in dark, moist places.

People with weakened immune systems are more likely to get athlete’s foot, so make sure to support your immune system by supplementing with colloidal silver, nutritious food, and adequate sleep.

Then, fight athlete’s foot naturally:

-Make a cinnamon water bath for your feet by boiling a gallon of water with 2-3 cinnamon sticks. (You can also try lemon water, but if you have sores that will hurt).

-Heat a little olive oil with some crushed garlic for an antimicrobial lotion.

-Regularly apply tea tree oil to fight fungus. Because fungal infections are hard to treat, expect a few weeks for the infection to subside.

It’s better to prevent athlete’s feet then have to treat it, so here are some key steps to take (they’re also good to do following a fungal infection to keep it from returning!):

-Exfoliate feet, removing dead skin that would feed fungus.

-Take a cheap pair of flip flops, or “shower shoes” with you to the gym or the pool.

-Clean and dry your feet after swimming and working out.

-Fight bacterial growth in your shoes with Smelly Shoe Spray, just spritz before and after working out.

-If you’re a heavy sweater (and if you’re drinking enough water, you likely will be) sprinkle in some baking powder, too, to soak up the excess.

-Wear breathable cotton socks or open shoes that breathe.

What are your favorite summer activities?
