Today, we’re going to talk about how to get rid of toenail fungus. We’re also going to ask some big questions to help get to the root cause of toenail fungus.

Overall, I want this video to help change how you look at your body and your symptoms. When you notice a symptom like toenail fungus, something deeper is going on.

You don’t only have friendly bacteria living in and on your body. You have friendly fungi too. They are beneficial to your body unless their environment changes, and they get stressed and turn pathogenic.

High blood sugar levels, high cortisol levels, or a lowered immune system may be at the root of certain conditions that can lead to toenail fungus. When dealing with toenail fungus, it’s crucial to support your immune system.

How to support your immune system:
1. Increase your vitamin D levels
2. Increase your vitamin C levels
3. Take zinc
4. Do intermittent fasting and periodic prolonged fasting

The best home remedies for toenail fungus:
1. Epsom salt:
Dissolve two tablespoons of Epsom salt in four cups of hot water, let the water cool slightly, and soak your feet in the mixture for fifteen minutes once a day.

2. Iodine
Put one or two drops of decolorized iodine or povidone-iodine on your nail and let it dry. Do this before bed.

Other great remedies to get rid of toenail fungus fast:
• Tea tree oil
• Oregano oil
• Clove oil
• Lavender oil

  1. Thank you so much Dr. Berg for your advice – I love your videos and advice (much better than my doctors in real life!) You really know what you are talking about and helped me with a few things, that my doctors didn’t know. Have a nice day 🙂

  2. I work in a hospital, I go in thousands of patients rooms. Almost everyone of them have this. And I wonder why doctors don’t treat it- from the inside. But they dont.

    • You know what blows my mind, and I discussed it with my pain management doctor, I had a serious back injury) and he is doing some research on this with his team. Why is it when we go to any doctor they take out temperature, blood pressure, weigh us, you know those standard vitals they gather, but they don’t do a finger stick. How many people are walking around with diabetes that are being treated for symptoms, but not the cause? I hope they decide to start testing their patients, at least new patients upon intake. My pain doctor is NOT a pill pusher, he is adamant about physical activity and prescribed PT for most of his patients with a focus on exercise.

    • The profit motive is to sell more drugs not cure the patient. You can’t get a patent on natural cures. Doctors are afraid of prescribing non FDA approved remedies. The FDA doesn’t test efficacy of drugs and drug companies don’t test for remedies they can’t get a patent on.

    • I have a fungal infection all over my scalp, under my pits, groin and buttfold. I took the pill the prescribed for three months and caused me to have liver damage.

  3. Sunshine, natural vitamins and fasting. Almost every video has the same answer Dr. Berg!! We love you, enjoy your day! 😂❤

  4. Dr. B is right abt clear/white iodine. It works best for sure! I’d like to add that after soaking, the nail bed needs to be cleaned & dried thoroughly, then ‘lightly’ buffed with a very fine grit nail file or box file (is best) to allow the penetration of the clear/white iodine into the nail bed. Do this once a week as the nails grow & the fungus will go away. You’ll see clear nail growing in at the cuticle as the old fungal nail grows off. Just depends on how fast your nails grow.

    • I wonder if it would work on my toes. I’ve had fungus toe nails for 20 years and I usually cover them with acrylic nails

    • @Lucy Sanchez I believe it will. I got it In2007 from a MOTEL IN ATLANTIC CITY. 2021 I started using it! I was totally in shock when the fungus detached from the nail and the nail bed. As it grew it just got harder because it was really soft. I wish Dr. BERG WAS MY PRIMARY. I ACTUALLY HAD THEM CHECK MY Vitamin D…guess what? I’m low so now they giving it to me. I am obtaining more knowledge from Dr Berg and Mark Hyman about my health and I will be 60 on my next birthday!!!

    • @MZ TEE LEW I didn’t soak. I’m sure you can but I didn’t. I took an old toothbrush everyday and cleaned my toes and feet and applied around and where I could get underneath. I WAS SHOCKED! DR BERG IS THE TRUTH!!!!

  5. I am always amazed by your intelligence and how you integrate & articulate facts to make things understandable easily even for laymen like me.
    Thank you for your hard work to help us.
    God bless you and your professionalism Dr.

  6. Excellent advice Doc. I got a toenail fungus I picked up at the gym. My own fault, forgot flip-flops in the sauna, maybe that caused it. I do follow a healthy diet, I’m not diabetic so it was likely an external cause. Anyway I tried an over the counter preparation which only kept it in check, didn’t cure it after quite an extended period of time. I then saw your previous video, tried povidon iodine without epson salts and it worked. In fact it worked so rapidly I was amazed and my thanks to you. I have totally normal nail growth. I think with the epson salts is a great idea for most cases. My fungus was possibly weakened somewhat by the over the counter stuff, and then your povidon plan killed it.

  7. Dr. Berg and everybody…I had chronic sinusitis congestion, asthma and COPD. The mucus and phlegm was was like having glue in my throat 24/7. Tried EVERYTHING in the past and nothing worked. Following your advices, 5 months into keto, some intermitent fasting and eating/nasal garlic flush improve alot but the game changer was serrapeptase 240k SPU (3 times a day). First used only 240k SPU and noticed some improvement…but then I read the back of the bottle and it recommended a total of (3) 240k spu doses for therapeutic purposes. I increased the dosage and within a few day I starting to sleep better (in combination with my new $2500 tempurpedic mattress) and started to expectorate all the backed-up mucus even when I went to the bathroom. Within a week I got like a severe flu in which I coughed up all that nasty stuff but kept using serrapeptase, had to used antibiotics against my will but replenished good bacteria with kimchi juice. After I cured from this flu-like epidose which I think was a detox phase…I’m not that affected by allergies. Now I can sleep at least 6 hours everynight from the previous 1 or 2 hours. Whenever I want I can get rid of the mucus by coughing which was impossible before. It was the miracle I was asking God for years. Thanks for your advices…your a national treasure.

  8. I have a lesser known and incredibly impractical solution that worked. My dad was an air force flight mechanic in the 50s. He accidentally stepped in a pan of air craft fuel they were using to clean parts with, while coming out of one of the engine hatches. That foot was fungus free for the rest of his life. Av Gas .. like I said.. impractical.

  9. I had toenail fungus. I used all the medicines prescribed by the doctor for 3 years, still it did not get better. A pharmacist friend of mine. He said to mix the baking soda with vaseline and apply. I applied it this way for 1 week and my nail fungus, which has not healed for 3 years, is permanently gone.

  10. Dr. Berg, all my toe nails have looked very bad for over 10 years, a few of my big toe nails actually fell off and regrew, I do take vitamins a lot more than I used to, have not had any toe nails falling off and regrowing since. I am going to try this method of epson salt and water and iodine. Thanks for the great video and information !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. I tried many of these home remedies over 5+ years of having an infected toe. I finally had a podiatrist use a “Dremel” tool to grind down the infected part of the nail. That allows the topical nail fungal solution to penetrate deeper. I’m still waiting for my nail to fully grow out but I see no signs of fungus. Happy days!!

  12. I have a lingering major sinus infection, the antibiotics naturally led to a candida infection, whoa – forgot prebiotic drink. Then, there’s the fungus toenail that I’ve had for almost nine years.
    You are so way better than any medical doctor Dr.Berg, deepest thanks and Happy Thanksgiving.

  13. I’ve got it after tight shoes and a lot of walking, like 10-15KM daily.
    It took almost a year to get rid of, taking Teknazol most of the time and doing some pedicure once.
    Take care of yourselves, everyone ❣️ and listen to Dr. Berg. Peace out ✌🏻

  14. Got to love Dr. Berg. He’s the only doctor that has actually helped me fix and reverse medical conditions by educating me and helping take matters into my own hands. Unlike these incompetent, over paid so called doctor idiots I’ve dealt with my whole life. Who are also not held accountable when they drop the ball. I owe this man my life!

  15. We sure can’t concentrate on treating the symptoms without going to the root cause. That is exactly what most doctors do most of the times. Thank you Dr.Berg for that great advice. I appreciate you for all you do to reach out to lots of people globally.

    • Yes, but it is not doctors fault. It’s their education. That is controlled by the government, and that is controlled by multi national companies and big pharma. Their only goal is for us to take meds forever instead of actually healing. For example I have a pretty decent GP. She tried to complain to the government about stuff and the answer was always NOOOOOO.
