Say Goodbye To Fungal Infection In Your Feet
During the summer, the feet sweat more than they usually do, in other seasons, so there is a greater probability of developing fungal infections in the area surrounding the toes.
Toenails are more frequently affected than the fingernails. The medical name for a fungal nail infection is onychomycosis. It’s not usually serious, but can be unpleasant and difficult to treat.
The infection develops slowly and causes the nail to become discolored, thickened and distorted.
Things You Can Try

Keep your hands and feet clean and dry
Wear well-fitting shoes made of natural materials and clean cotton socks – these will allow your feet to “breathe”

Clip your nails to keep them short – use a separate pair of clippers or scissors for the infected nail don’t share towels and socks with other people, and ensure your towels are washed regularly don’t walk around barefoot in public pools, showers, and locker rooms – special shower shoes are available to protect your feet Replace old footwear as it could be the source of the infection However, if you experience problems with fungal infections, there are various, highly efficient natural home remedies can cure the infection in one or two months. You only need to soak your feet in:
Baking Soda

Baking soda is a readily available staple in most kitchens that can also be used to cure toenail fungus. It will also help neutralize foot odor.
Add one-half cup of baking soda, one-fourth cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide and one-half cup of Epsom salt to four cups of hot water. Mix the ingredients thoroughly, and then add one-fourth cup of white vinegar to it. Soak the affected toenail in this solution for about 10 minutes.

Wash with clean water and dry your foot thoroughly. Repeat the process twice daily for several weeks.

Yogurt is a great cure for foot infections that develop in the area between the nails and toes, as it contains live bacteria- acidophilus. Yogurt contains “friendly” microorganisms which destroy fungal infections.
Soak your feet in yogurt, or simply rub yogurt all over them and leave the yogurt to dry. Then, just wash off with cold water.
Hydrogen peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is an ideal tool for destroying bacteria and fungi, so if you soak your feet in a mixture from this compound and water, you can kill unpleasant fungal infections and prevent them from spreading.
Add 100 milliliters of 3% pharmaceutical grade hydrogen peroxide in one liter of distilled water and soak your feet for 20 minutes every morning and.
Corn Starch

Starch is excellent in absorbing the moisture, which makes it a great ingredient for pastes that prevent the appearance of unpleasant bacteria and fungi.
Mix half a teaspoon of corn starch with a little bit of warm water. Set the oven to 220 degrees and keep the mixture in the oven until it darkens.
Wash and dry your feet, and then rub this mixture onto them, leave it for 1 minute and then wash the mixture off with warm water.

Pungent and powerful garlic has dozens of health and household uses - some of which may seem pretty unusual. While garlic is an important ally for natural health (you may be familiar with the fact that garlic has the ability to increase immunity, banish colds and is a recognized broad-spectrum antibiotic), its functions extend beyond these common uses. Check out these 14 unusual and strange alternative uses for garlic.  
1. A Great Aid for Athlete's Foot
Being a potent, natural antifungal, garlic is ideal for treating fungal infections irritating and itchy athlete's foot. Just add a couple of crushed garlic cloves to warm water in a foot bath and soak the affected area for 30 minutes. 
2. Helps in Preventing Gas
While for some, garlic causes uncomfortable stomach-distending gas, due to its high sulfur content, for others it can reportedly ease it. In order to maintain intestinal health though, you would need to consume it on a regular basis. Garlic can kill harmful intestinal bacteria, promoting the growth of beneficial flora, making digestion smoother.  

3. Combats Hair Loss
Before resorting to a more drastic measure, if you are going bald, give garlic a shot. It is believed that massaging the scalp with garlic oil stimulates hair growth. 
4. Apply it to Breakouts of Acne
Though it will make your skin smell, the antibacterial properties of garlic will help lessen the appearance of acne, including those deep acne cysts that can otherwise be difficult to treat. Just slice open a clove of raw, fresh garlic and apply it to breakouts. 

5. Aids in Weight Loss
Though you cannot count on garlic to help you lose a lot of weight, research shows that garlic has potential for aiding weight loss. Compounds found in garlic send signals of satiety to your brain, which will actually help you to feel full faster. It also boosts metabolic function, enabling you to burn more calories. 
6. Use it as a Natural Pesticide
An all-natural garlic pesticide spray can be used to ward off pests whiteflies, aphids, cabbage loppers and squash bugs. All you need to do is mince three garlic cloves and let them sit in two tablespoons of mineral oil for 24 hours. Then, strain out the garlic and add the oil, along with a teaspoon of liquid dish soap, to a pint of water in a spray bottle and spray on infested plants.
7. Use it to Repel Mosquitoes
You need not use DEET and other potentially toxic chemicals to ward off mosquitoes, garlic can work wonders. To prepare a mosquito spray, let a few minced cloves of garlic infuse in an ounce of mineral oil for 24 hours. Strain and mix the garlic scented oil with two cups of water and one teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice. If necessary, strain again and pour into a spray bottle.   
8. Use it as a Natural Adhesive to Repair Glass
Though it may not work on major jobs, garlic juice can be used to fill in hairline cracks in glass and hold them together. Simply crush a clove of garlic and rub its sticky, viscous juice in the cracks and wipe away the excess.  

9. Kills Bacteria that Causes Ear Infections
This common folk remedy has been used for centuries. Simply crush a clove of garlic and place it in a teaspoon of hot olive oil for five minutes. Strain, allow to cool and drip a few drops at a time into your ear canal. Alternatively, you can purchase garlic oil from natural health food stores.  

10. Helps Remove Splinters
Splinters are painful to remove and may at times dig a little too deep into the skin to pull out, but this odd trick can really work. Place a thin slice over the splinter, keeping it on with a bandage. The garlic should help the splinter work its way out of the skin within hours.  

11. Use it to Relieve Psoriasis
Garlic's anti-inflammatory properties could ease or even prevent persistent tightness and itching of psoriasis. Active compounds in garlic interact with arachidonic acid, an omega fatty acid in the skin linked to psoriasis. You may also rub garlic oil on the affected areas once or twice per day.  
12. Use it as a Cough Syrup
Garlic can be used as a cough syrup to ease inflammation in the throat and clear up excess mucus. Add raw, minced garlic in hot water, straining it after five minutes and drinking the liquid as tea. To make it more palatable, add ginger and honey. 

13. Garlic makes for a Fantastic Road De-icer
Come winter, many  towns de-ice their roads. Ankeny, Iowa smelled awfully savory in 2008 when winter transportation crews spread garlic salt on the streets in advance of snowstorms. The salt, donated by a local spice producer, was apparently deemed unfit for human consumption. 

14. Kills Intestinal Parasites
Many alternative health practitioners advise using raw garlic to expel intestinal parasites. Consumed in quantities of about three cloves per day may help clear nasty organisms out of the digestive tract. It is recommended as part of a cleansing diet that also includes raw honey, lemon juice, pumpkin seeds, carrots and beets.
