I've had nail fungus on three of my fingers of my left hand for years, tried everything under the sun to get rid of it and finally just relegated my self to the fact that I'd just have to live with it. So, I just kept them filed down to make them look better and remove the scaly layers. Then by accident one day, I did something that seemed to have an effect on it. I fish a lot and recently (about 3 months ago) my worms got really dry in the bait shop container they were in, so I dipped a little water from the lake in to get them wet. I used my fingers to mix the water, dirt, and worms. When I got home, I noticed the three nails infected had turned brownish black. I thought it was just discoloration from mixing the worms, dirt, and lake water so I rinsed them off, but the discoloration was still there as if the nails were somehow stained. I thought nothing of it until a few weeks later I noticed a new nail was emerging and the brownish black part was moving upward behind the new nail emerging, and the scaling had stopped. Boy, was I shocked to see a new nail emerging! The only thing I can figure was that earth worms secrete a slimy enzyme and maybe that was possibly what caused the reaction to my nails. I don't know, but if the new nails grow all the way out, I'll jump for joy! They are about half way out now and I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

Wow! Thanks for sharing this. What kind of earthworms were they and how much water did you put in? I might try this for a nice foot bath!

Jessica, they were just plain ol' earthworms. I put in just enough lake water to make the worms (and dirt) slimy and pasty. I don't know if there was anything in the water or dirt that had an effect, maybe? Or if it was the enzyme from the worms, but the combination worked. The new nails have slowed a little (they are a little over half way out now) so I am repeating the combination again. I guess you have to keep at since the fungus will re-establish itself if you don't keep attacking it until it's completely gone. It's a war with a fungus. They have been around since forever and they are not giving up without a fight. I do know that scientists have said that earthworms could live possibly forever if the conditions were right, something to think about. My grandfather always said that there wasn't an ailment that humans have that there wasn't something provided in nature that will cure it. The problem is finding out about that natural cure. Because of lack of knowledge we suffer. A lot is known by old timers but is unknown to the next generation unless passed on from generation to generation, and it should be given freely to help give relief to a suffering humanity. A lot of things people offer are just, well, bulls***, but somethings really work. I guess we have to find the things that do work on our own and weed out the BS. If I find something that works, I'll pass it on, it's free in nature and should remain free...

Well said so did it worked for you?

All gone, Denise, and you bet I'll keep doing this each time I go fishing to keep them healthy and the fungus at bay...
