“Fungus Among Us”

April 8, 2018

Joan L. McDaniel                       April 8, 2018

There is an old saying, “There’s a fungus among us,”. I don’t know If you have heard of it or not.  Some think the phrase doesn’t really meant anything  except it was funny, it rhymes and maybe someone weird is hanging around.

Cool funny cat pictures with captions (1)

Fungus amung us

Cat to Cat “Oh My — Look at that? There is fungus among us!!!!

It reflects the view that aliens or strange life forms exist all around.  In a way it

The old saying, “There’s a fungus among us,” contains an element of truth.

This is part of my continuing series on Candida Yeast Overrun which is another name for Fungus.   Articles on the following subjects Are You Fermenting? Antioxidants, Slow Detox, Eating Healthy, and Vinegar and Digestion.

This article will focus on how to manage a fungus infection when it starts showing up on the skin.

What is Fungi?

There are at least 100,000 different fungus species, and members of the fungus kingdom (collectively known as fungi) are found almost everywhere. Fungi, along with some bacteria and other organisms, are the decomposers of our world. They break down the remains of dead plants, animals and other living things and, in the process, obtain the energy they need to grow and reproduce. Fungus is classified as a kingdom containing a group of eukaryotic organisms. These organism are separate from other eukaryotic life kingdoms of animals and plants. Fungus includes microorganisms such as molds, mushroom and yeast.

Fungus to Used Make Things

Humans have made use of fungi for food preparation, preservation, mushroom farming and gathering, and produce large amount of finished products including fermentation ,anti-cancer, and other medical uses.

Mushrooms Are Magically Mysterious

Most people probably don’t think of a mushroom as a fungus but it is.  We are too removed from the principles of life to appreciate and enjoy Mother Nature anymore.

Mushrooms are a form of fungus although sometimes they look and act like plants.  We don’t think twice about the mushroom nowadays because most are grown and harvested out of the wilderness and on farms instead. The mushroom we know is safe.  The mushroom is a fungus and if you watch outside you will see mushroom growing in the wild on sides of trees or in the garden. Mushrooms and fungus feed the earthworm and replenished the soil. We need fungus like we need the dirt in the ground.

Fungus has been around the earth since our prehistoric primordial ocean goo period. Fungus climbed out of the goo with us and is a major part and player in lives and our bodies even today.

We need fungus to further life and to grow. To grow –  things must die we need fungus to clean up the mess so to speak.



What is Candida Yeast?

If you click the link above it is a great explanation of Candida Yeast.  They are talking about a dog and it is different, but a great description of Candida Yeast Overgrowth.

As everyone who has read this blog, it is about me being sick, hospitalized, sent home and getting well by the food I ate. I had been hospitalized because I couldn’t breath and didn’t have the strength to stand up.  After a week, they found I had something called Candida Yeast Albicans, or Candida Yeast overgrowth.  They gave me an 4 day supply of oral anti-fungal medication and sent me home. They had decided my body was just too old and broken and couldn’t really be repaired.  I had other thoughts.

The Word Candida means “White” In Latin 

Candida Albicans is a fungi Eukaryotic.  It was discovered in 400 BCE, not fully classified until early 20th century.  The name Candida, comes from the latin word for white since when it is first observed it appears as white sores.

The endoscopy team that did my tests, told me I had white patches of white Candida all along my esophagus.  As Fungus does, It had drilled holes and planted fungus mold along with burns from the stomach’s gastric juice.  I not only had white holes in my esophagus, I also had a white tongue, major dandruff, ringing ears, not a lot of oxygen and not enough energy to get out of bed for very long.  I also had major brain fog.

That is an Example of Candida Overrun

Candida yeast and fungus are a normal part of your gut flora,  and live in the digestive tract.  These organisms normally coexist peacefully I was not a typical example of A happy living organism at peace and in balance.  No wonder I could’t sleep or think clearly.

Fungus is around to clean things up

Remember fungus is around to “clean things up” in Nature that is and at the first sign of an imbalance and toxins (or trash) in the immune system the Candida population take over. They rapidly spread taking what oxygen and sugar it can find and demands more.

I don’t know if Candida was waiting around to eat the rest of me or not.  After all does “cleaning up” mean “Leave only the bones”?  I wasn’t going to wait to find out.

Modern Medicine

Modern medicine not only doesn’t seem to understand nutrition, it seems a little fuzzy on recognizing fungus.  Medicine may have a handle on Nail Fungus but illness from wide-ranging Candida Overrun escapes the radar. Modern medicine understands bacteria, and pain mostly.  Fungus isn’t really taken seriously IN MY OPINION.

You are given a week supply of a few traditional creams and/or some antifungal but tend to ignore fungus as anything that needs a major life-style change.  It either doesn’t exist or it will go away on its own they must think.

I’m A Living Example

Take my word for it – fungus is real and I can see it in others all around me.  I work as a nurse and see different stages of Overgrowth (Candida) almost everywhere

Over the years, I focused on eating the Antioxidants provided by eating a plant-based diet. I have been working at getting the genie back into the bottle so to speak as to stopping or slowing the Candida Yeast overrun by increasing the strength of my gut, the immune system and my mitochondria.


Genie back in her bottle

Getting Candida to go back where it came from.

I’m Not yet 100%,  but gaining.

I have regained control of my muscle, joints, and intestines. My head is now free of clutter but still need more energy and strength but that will come. I’m not running marathons but I am running circles around most 74 year olds.  I experienced so much pain along the way I felt like I had been sealed in plastic it simply hurt to stand-up let alone stretch my oxygen and magnesium deprived muscles.  But I slowly worked it out at getting movement back.  With this in mind,

You should be aware of something call Candida Die Off while detoxing.

What is Candida Die Off?

When you first get started  detoxing,  and trying to take back control of your system by taming Candida or Fungus, you may experience “Candida Die Off”.  It is also known as the Herxheimer reaction

It is your bodies reaction. When the Candida cell dies or changes its form, it doesn’t just go away, it releases up to 70 to 80 different toxins into the blood stream.

Candida die off is your bodies reaction to being overwhelmed with toxins.  Now this could be worst then when you started and are over loaded with toxins. You may suddenly experience aches and pains you had forgotten about.  These toxins had been buried by your lymph system in your fat cells so you could go on living without pain or hardship. Now they are being released all over again and your body has to fight them all over again.

My Own Die Off

I know, I ran a fever of 102, and went to bed with the chills.  I bundled up in a pile of clothes, blankets and went to bed. Before I went to bed I could hardly handle the pain and simply stand up. Eight hours later I woke up in sweat, sat up put my feet on the floor and stood-up.  I was pain-free !!!


I learned to go a little more slowly in my treatment plan.

I heard of several simple natural things I could take to absorb the toxins and escort them out with the trash. You should also make sure your regular with at least 2 to 3 bowel movements a day.

Aids with Candida Die Off and Detoxing.

Things that can be tried:

Activated charcoal tables (Natural)

1 TBS of Whole Psyllium Husks and at least 10 ounces of water

1 TBS of Bernadine Clay Liquid with plenty of water.

1 to 2 TBS of Apple Cider Vinegar in bath water once you can tolerate.

Take 1 hour before meals or 2 hours after.

If you feel constipated drink more water.  Clean filtered Tap Water.

Things like Bernadine Clay, charcoal, Psyllium and other things absorb the unwonted toxins.  Aloe Vera is also good.  See list at end of this article.

Types of Fungal Diseases

The most common fungal skin disease is Ringworm

What is Ringworm?


Ringworm isn’t a worm, nor is it Lyme Disease. Ringworm is a common skin fungal infection which can appear almost anywhere on or just under the skin.   Ringworm is normally extremely very itchy, red and white, and scaly.  It may only have a white slightly raised pimple or be red and white that can progress to the “halo” stage.

But one thing for sure it will itch and itCH and ITCH and ITCH some more. It’s the itch that drives people to the drug store. It is your way of your body getting attention.


Ringworm: The Best Home Remedies

Fungal Diseases 

All areas of the skin can be effected and here is a list of type of Fungal Skin Infections:



athlete’s foot

back of neck

body odor

bleeding or sensitive gums,

itchy anything on the skin

itchy bottom

foul breath

nasal congestion or runny nose



diaper rash

ear infection

eye infection

face beard or under eyes

finger fungus

Fungal pneumonia – infection of the lungs by fungi – hard to treat with a High mortality rate due to immunocompromised patients. Can be treated with anti-fungal drugs. Rx drugs

jock itch

nail fungus

oral thrush

pathogenic bacteria



sinus infection

skin rash red or white

sore throat

under armpits rash

under breasts rash

Vaginal thrush

Prescription Anti-fungal Drugs

Modern Medicine dose have some anti-fungal drugs call fungicides.  They are not an aggressive treatment like a treatment for a bacteria infection. But they are known to kill good cells and bad. These anti-fungal drugs are called fungicides in the form of topical creams or sprays that have miconazole, or clotrimazole as an active ingredient.  Most are available over the counter but stronger doses need a Doctor’s prescription (Rx), fluconazole is taken orally.

Getting a prescriptions for antifungal is hard, for the medical world doesn’t consider fungus as important of other high-priced diseases. Modern medicine seems more concerned with bacteria then fungus.  If you find a willing doctor get prepared for a battery of blood work and skin tests, before the prescription is issued. A week supply is normally issued but fungus doesn’t go anywhere in a week.  And once its gone, IT COMES BACK when the coast is clear. Then comes the question of the side effects of the medication.

Prescription for serious Candida infections 

These three prescription drugs listed below, need the care of a doctor.  There are times when prescription antifungal are useful, particularly in more serious hospitalized Candida infections.  They are powerful medicines especially the first two on the list. There are also many side effects which do not occur with a natural product. There is evidence that prescription anti-fungals are not as adaptive as Candida is.  The drug is not discriminate and kills both good and bad cells.

For the milder and superficial cases, a combination of natural antifungal and dietary changes tends to offer more flexibility for Candida can be very adaptive.

Diflucan – can be used to combat any kind of fungal infection, most used for serious infection affecting major parts of the body like lungs, mouth, throat and even the blood. It is only obtained with a doctor’s prescription. While Diflucan is effective against fungal infections, it is a powerful drug and has side effects and must be given under the care of a doctor. It might be better to try some of the more natural remedies before asking your doctor for Diflucan as a last resort. It is now becoming easier for doctors to prescribe anti-fungal medication.

Eraxis – Generic Name: (anidulafungin) a doctor prescribed medication for yeast infections in the blood, in the stomach or esophagus. Eraxis is injected into a vein of the body through an IV or as a powder that must be mixed with a liquid (diluent) before using it. Again this is a powerful medication and must be done with the care of a doctor.

Nystatin – is a doctor prescribed drug, most often used by doctors for Candida outbreaks. It is effective against particular yeasts, but has little effect on other microorganisms in the body. Nystatin is available in tablets, lozenges and in liquid form. For external application, Nystatin ointments, powders and creams are also available.

These treatments are available under doctors care, but in my case, I haven’t found these to be  very effective and believe they have some nasty side effects all modern medicine does.  The creams are manufactured or synthetic and not that safe. I found it better to leave the Doctor alone.

Natural Anti-fungal Treatments

Plants came to this Earth before we did.  If it hadn’t been for their photosynthesis, and converting the sun’s light to energy, we would be around at all.  They have their own immune system, just like we do and have over time developed many ways to handle Fungus Overrun and control and prevent mold overgrowth.  Using natures plant growth as treatments makes a great deal of sense.

A Life Style Choice decision

Fungus has been around on the planet since we fell out of that tree.  God’s tree or Darwin’s? Remedies to treat this are many and varied.  There has been a major increase in a fungal infections due to our increase intake of processed food mostly sugar. The Strongest form of anti-fungal treatment is a life style choice.  Stop eating empty calories and start feeding your immune system. Fungus loves sugar stop feeding your fungus and start eating for your health.  You may not feel sick now but you will.  It may be nice to be old and out of it but why not old and with it instead.

It comes faster than you think your body can adjust only so long.

How to Take the different kinds of natural remedies

Adapt by using a different remedies after several days.  Fungus is extremely productive by laying large amounts of parasite eggs. You kill off the first batch, but that doesn’t end unless you also kill the eggs. It  is also extremely crafty and very adaptive.  What worked yesterday, may not work today.

Capsule Form – There are many natural remedies available in capsule form and many manufactures.  You can also make your own that way you know what herb and only what herb is in it.  There is Capsule making machines available. Manufacturing has greatly improved and have paid attention to the demand for a pure product. If you do buy your capsules READ THE LABELS

Apply a compress – Normally the Remedy is made into a compress by soaking it into a wash cloth or cotton ball and applied to the area.  In some cases the compress can be left on for up to 30 minutes or mix the remedy into bath water and soak for 20 minutes. You can also use a cold compress for things like insect bits

Apple Cider Vinegar Douches – Are available in some stores.  Online sites have applicators for both Female Douches and Enema’s.  Use diluted ACV – You can also use a tappan soaked in diluted ACV and leave for several hours.

Essential oils – Many herbs can be applied topically using carrier oils, and essential oils or by mixing a few drops with water. Carrier oils are aloe vera, coconut oil, castor oil, mustard olive, or others.   The essential oils are Calendula Oil, Lavender Oil, Lemongrass oil, and Tea Tree Oil. By mixing a small amount of concentrated Essential oil like Lemongrass apply a few drops to Calendal oil and a larger amount of something like Coconut Oil.

Essential oils and water – mix several essential oils with water and Benidine Clay as a Detox Candida die drink off mixture

Essential oils and  – Many herbs can be applied topically using essential oils and carrier oils.  Carrier oils are aloe vera, coconut oil or other carrier oil.  The essential oils are Calendula Oil, Lavender Oil, Lemongrass oil, and Tea Tree Oil,

Oil Pulling – is good for Oral Thrush and removing toxins from your mouth.  I use Coconut Oil, but other oils can be used.  Take about a tablespoon of either coconut oil, sesame oil or others.  Swish it around in your mouth for over 20 minutes spitting out the remaining.  This pulls the fungus from the mouth for things like Thrush.

Foods and herbs that are antiparasitic

Candida, Fungus and Parasites hate apple cider vinegar, aloe, blackberries, cabbage (raw), coconut oil and coconut products not containing sugar, dandelion, fermented foods, raw garlic, gentian root, ginger, lemons, limes, raw onion, papaya, pineapple, fresh pomegranate, pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds, radish, rutabaga,

The most powerful anti-parasitic herbal ingredients are black walnut, clove essential oil, and wormwood, and they should be taken together.

Note The Most powerful Against Fungus is —————


Apple Cider Vinegar

This vinegar must have a “mother” or it will not work.  It can not be a pasteurized vinegar.

Vinegars –  Traditionally vinegar are valued products in most societies.  It is important that the condition on the natural “mother” be as natural cloudy and filled with specks as possible. Many Vinegars have the “mother” besides Apple Cider.  In Europe Balsamic vinegar is a special vinegar no Italian would be without with the same important anti-fungal powers.  Now my favorite food is Coconut.  It now has also been made into a powerful and nice tasting anti-fungal great on other things too. Remember the importance of the “Mother”.

There is something important I learned while trying to restart my digestion it is called the Bitter Principle

Bitters are a group of plant constituents linked only by their pronounced bitter taste.  Many compounds can be bitter.  It is often a volatile oil, alkaloid or sesquiterpene ( or some combination).  The most bitter foods we use is the lemon and some vinegar especially with the “mother”  Once the body has been stimulated by the salivary glands and digestive organs with the bitter secretions it can dramatically improve digestion and absorption of nutrients that follow.  The body is thereby nourished and strengthened.  The sensation of bitterness in the body leads to other effects like calming, cooling, drying, restoring energy, restoring clearness and many other examples.

The reason the bitter taste has this effect is because it returns the body to that slightly alkaline state which kills off fungus.  I know it is hard to believe for we think of both the lemon and vinegar as being acid base.  But instead the lemon, lime and vinegar all generate an alkaline base which reduces acid and lowers pH.  Fungus and other acid base foods can not operate in an alkaline pH base and die on the spot.  I used the  Bitter Principle to help relight the fire of my digestive system and start digesting again.

Through out history the Lemon and Lime has found to be life savers especially during the early sailing days in England where the illness Scurvy was killing off England’s sailing fleet.  James Lind brought Limes on brought board ship to save the sailors lives.  That’s why the English sailer is called a Limey.  The life safer was thought to be Vitamin C which it did but the change in the sailors pH stop the fungal damage in its tracks.

Scurvy Disease



Picture of British Sailor or “Limey”

Use Apple Cider Vinegar 

Introduce using ACV by diluting half and half – half ACV half Water.  Slowly decrease the amount of water until you can feel a burning effect. Note: you still must always dilute ACV for it should not be applied directly to the skin or taken internally without diluting.

Many Other Useful Anti-Fungal Herbs

I have accumulated this list as a way to fight my Candida Overgrowth.  Since Candida changes it form and adjusts to what you fighting it with, you need to have a lot of ammunition.

After ACV and water I have found these herbs are extremely useful for certain things. Tree Tea Oil for the nails, coconut oil, and/or Calendula Oil, Colloidal Silver, (Diatomaceous Earth, Grape fruit seed, Neem (works for parasites like flees for the Kitty), Sea salt one and/or all mixed with a carrier oil like coconut, olive, calendula).  Below is a list of herbs or remedies extremely useful especially when looking for variety when out guessing the flexibility of Candida.

Aloe vera –  is good for the skin including the outer skin of the inner outer layer of the colon.  It is especially effective for the condition of the outer skin and the inner outer layer of the colon. Aloe can be used directly on the patches of itchy, irritated, inflamed fungal infected skin.  Enhance Aloe’s treatment by adding some tea tree oil 2 – 3 drops to 1 TBL of Aloe.

Black Walnut-Nuts & Hull (Juglans nigra) – Black Walnut has been used for its ability to cleanse the blood and the intestines.  It also is used to fight bacteria, fungal, parasites and yeast. It is also a mild laxative to help with the elimination of dead microbes. Only green halls should be used.

Calendula Oil – is made from pot marigold. It has  antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, antiviral, and astringent properties,  It can also be added to coconut oil, or other carrier oil, to make a natural treatment for ringworm. Its soothing properties can help to reduce the urge to scratch the itchy patch of skin and it can effectively reduce redness.

Caprylic Acid – See Coconut Oil

Chamomile – anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-itch properties which are useful in getting rid of skin rashes.

Cinnamon – is extremely worth its weight in gold as the saying goes.  Cinnamon tastes good and is good for you especially in managing blood sugar levels, and as a form of fiber – it comes from tree bark.  Cinnamon is anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory.

Cloves – Is used to break the parasite’s life-cycles.  Clove oil is antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral.  It is a powerful broad-spectrum antimicrobial. It is used to dissolve parasite eggs found in the intestines that have been left behind by worms.  When used in conjunction with black walnut and wormwood, the trio break the parasite’s life-cycles.

Coconut oil or Caprylic Acid – Has Lauric acid which is a Antibacterial, Anti-fungal, anti anti-yeast. It us best to take a tablespoon a day.  One of the many uses of coconut oil is to apply it topically to treat various skin infections like ringworm. I originally used Coconut Oil for my dandruff, thrush, Ear infection, and just about everything else including my butcher wood block and my wood floors.  Coconut oil is an amazing home treatment by making your insides and outside skin feel moisturized and comfortable. It penetrates deep into layers of the skin to help fight infections and keep the skin free of bacteria and fungi.

Colloidal Silver – is also anti-fungal and is very effective when mixed with a cream and applied topically.  Silver can help with the reddened or infected rash.  I found an excellent Cream Gel made with Colloidal Silver to be very effective.

Coptis Chinensis –  is a species of goldthread native to China. Like Garlic it is a very powerful anti parasitic herb also anti-everything that’s bad for us (bacteria, candida, etc.)

Coriander is a great remedy for rashes because of its antiinflammatory, anti- irritant, and antiseptic properties. It also soothing and has an inviting scent that is both calming and relaxing.  Make a paste of ground coriander using a carrier oil and leave on area for an hour.

Diatomaceous Earth – Food grade diatomaceous earth absorbs drug residues, E. coli, endotoxins, methyl mercury, organophosphate, pesticide residues, toxins, and viruses. Its positive effects include balancing the intestinal flora, killing intestinal parasites, and viruses.  It’s great for intestinal cleanses. The only side effect known is its ability to irritate the lungs if inhaled; it is a very fine powder that clings like clay after all it come from the Earth. Mother nature’s good ol’ dirt.

Garlic – Used for centuries and saved mankind from the Black Plague  of the dark ages it is also famous for its ability to control Vampires as in the movie it eradicates! Need link Garlic can also be used as a powerful medicine.  Garlic is anti-bad-stuff.  Garlic kills off most things that ale you including fungal infections. Garlic is also a very powerful deterrent for blood sucking parasites like fleas, mosquitoes, and ticks. To be effective Garlic needs to be crushed and mixed with a carrier oil.

Ginger – used in traditional medicine to help with a variety of ailments. It is antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic. Ginger has been used for centuries to help with digestion, inflammation, immunity, osteoarthritis, nausea, motion and morning sickness, and many more.

Grapefruit Seed extract – has incredible anti-bacteria, and anti-fungal and pro immune system function. It contains high amounts of citrus bioflavonoids that act as powerful antioxidants and antimicrobials.  It was originally used in the agricultural industry to prevent mold growing on foods, and it has now been used to treat a wide variety of ailments including fungus and its many forms.

Lemongrass oil – Essential Oil is a powerful anti-fungal that helps reduce the irritating itchy and/or red rash skin infections, caused by ringworm fungus.

Lemon and Lime – Also see Apple Cider Vinegar and the pH balance.  When I was attempting to eat fermented foods but could not yet tolerate the sour taste, I turned to the lemon to help bring my system to an alkaline balance.  It is known as the bitter principle.  Remember the Lemon and/or Lime originally stopped the spread of SKURVY during the Early exploration by sailling days.

Neem – Dubbed “nature’s pharmacy”, the neem tree has long been used for healing in ayurveda. It is also known as Indian lilac and is very useful in several areas like aging, analgesic, antioxidant,anti-inflammatory, antibacterial skin ailments (acne, eczema, psoriasis, and ringworm), rejuvenated skin cells. It is an effective herbal insect repellent, repelling ant, fleas, lice, mites, mosquitoes. Neem not only is effect anti-fungal is keeps the larvae in insects from producing a new generation. Neem along with Diatomaceous Earth are a very effective insecticide but Neem has many moisturizer properties where Diatomaceous Earth kills by drying the skin of the insect and host. To help kill the flees on my cats,  I use the two together. Both or good on the inside or the outside.

Oil of oregano –  Essential oil is infused with extremely high levels of free-radical-crushing antioxidants, and it is antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitic, and antiviral. It is a powerful, indiscriminate killer that can reset the microbial environment in the intestines. Studies have shown the effectiveness of oil of oregano with everything from parasitical infections to cancer inclusive MRSA. It is extremely concentrated and a few drops will do it.

Passion Flower – This herb isn’t for fungus it’s for the anxiety relief cause by the fungus and its insecesionable itch.  It helps healing by letting you relax and go to sleep.

You can also crush the papaya to create a paste that you can leave on your rashes for around 20 minutes. Wash the spots with warm water afterwards.

Pau D’Arco or (Lapacho) – Used in traditional medicine by indigenous people for centuries.  It has been found to help antibiotic resistance, fungal infection and anti-parasitic.  It comes from the bark of the Pau D’Arco tree that grows in the Amazon rainforest. It also helps with other ailments like anemia, arthritis, circulatory problems, colds, coughs, colitis, fever, fungal infections, malaria, respiratory illness, skin conditions, yeast, and even snakebite. Pau D’Arco help loosen the bowels not enough to cause diarrhea but enough to wash out toxins and Candida colonies in the colon.  This is the favorite treatment of my cat.  He doesn’t like the smell of ACV.

Pot marigolds – See Calendula oil.

Hydrogen Peroxide – ingesting hydrogen peroxide requires some

guidance, so see if you can find someone knowledgable at your local health food store  Secondly, you can ONLY do this with 35% food-grade hydrogen peroxide.  Take a small drop like from eye dropper and add it to a glass of water.  You only want to take it sparingly. What you’re essentially doing is giving yourself a hit of super-oxygen.  Too much is no good, but just the right amount is very effective at eradicating a lot of this yeast and fungus that can take hold inside your body.  Try to avoid direct skin contact for it will burn.  It is a minor burn and the skin turns white for a little while but no permanent damage.

Skin Brushing – Your skin is responsible for up to 15% of toxin elimination. Skin brushing enhances this process and improves your circulation too.

Sauna – improves circulation and helps flush out toxins through sweating.

Tea Tree Oil  – is a great remedy for fungus but its best use is for the red inflamed patched of skin.  But it’s most effective applied undiluted to fungal infected toenails (tinea unguium) cleared up the fungal nail infection in 60% of the patients. Tea tree oil can be applied undiluted to very small areas of skin (like a spot or a pimple), but it shouldn’t be applied undiluted to large areas of skin. Therefore, always dilute tea tree oil with coconut oil, or other carrier oil, to help cure ringworm topically.

Wormseed (Clenapodium ambrosides) – Has been investigated to use as a natural bug spray, food preservative and to help prevent intestinal infection in livestock.  It is an anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal.
