What is Athletes foot?

Athlete's foot (Tinea Pedis) is a common fungal infection that usually begins between the toes. It commonly occurs in people whose feet have become very sweaty while confined within tightfitting shoes. Other ways athlete's foot can be caught is from other people with the infection. You can get it by walking barefoot in places where someone else has athlete's foot – especially changing rooms and showers or by touching the affected skin of someone with athlete's foot. Tinea Pedis is a form of candida fungus.

Symptoms of Athletes foot

  • Itchy white patches between your toes.

  • Red, sore and flaky patches on your feet.

  • Skin that may crack and bleed.

  • It can also affect your soles or sides of your feet. If it's not treated, it can spread to your toenails and cause a fungal nail infection.

  • Athlete's foot sometimes causes fluid-filled blisters.

How is Athletes Foot Diagnosed?

In some cases, ones doctor may be able to diagnose athlete's foot simply by looking at it. To help confirm the diagnosis or rule out other conditions, your doctor may take a skin scraping sample from the affected area of your foot for testing in a lab.

Recommended Supplements for Athletes Foot

Colloidal Silver - Is well known for its ability to kill bacteria, viruses and fungus. It is ideal for the treatment of athlete's foot as it can kill fungus and bacteria in just 4-6 minutes and has no negative side effects. Colloidal silver can be ingested to help resolve any fungal situation in the blood. Colloidal can also be used topically directly on the infection for quicker results. It should be noted that prolonged use on the skin may cause a blue/silver pigmentation to become present over time.

Olive Leaf Extract - Because olive leaf extract has a compound called oleuropein, a known active ingredient with strong anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, it interferes with the production of amino acid for viruses, effectively stopping the fungal infection from growing and spreading. Taking olive leaf extract can help to improve any fungal situation in the blood, thus reducing the chances of re-occurring infections.

Zell Oxygen - Zell Oxygen is helpful in the reduction of Candida type symptoms, due to the action of the special live yeast cells. This may surprise some of you, as we tend to associate Candida with excess yeast. However, Zell Oxygen contains live saccharomyces cerevisaie yeast that is aerobic, as opposed to Candida that is oxygen ‘hating’. The yeast in Zell's oxygen will take over the terrain where Candida is resident, forcing this more primitive life form out of existence, and at the same time the improved cellular respiration and immune system will complete the work in re-balancing the inner terrain. As athletes foot is a form of candida fungus, Zell oxygen can help to resolve athlete's foot once and for all without any negative side effects.

Lifestyle Changes to Improve Athletes Foot

  • Dry your feet after washing them, particularly between your toes – dab them dry rather than rubbing them.

  • Use a separate towel for your feet and wash it regularly.

  • Take your shoes off when at home.

  • Wear clean socks every day – cotton socks are best.

  • Do not scratch affected skin – this can spread it to other parts of your body.

  • Do not walk around barefoot – wear flip-flops in places like changing rooms and showers.

  • Do not share towels, socks or shoes with other people.

  • Do not wear the same pair of shoes for more than 2 days in a row.

  • Do not wear shoes that make your feet hot and sweaty.
