A question we often encounter is, “Is toenail fungus Candida?” To address this: yes, toenail fungus is indeed Candida. It’s a manifestation of a fungal or yeast infection. Toenail fungus, medically known as onychomycosis, is also sometimes referred to as tinea unguium or tinea pedis. It typically appears on one or more toenails. A notable point is that many individuals tend to see this on the large toenail of their dominant foot. If you predominantly use your right foot, inspect the right large toenail, and vice versa for the left. This might be related to increased blood supply due to more activity. While this may not be a mainstream medical observation, it’s a pattern we’ve noted.

Toenail fungus is prevalent, so much so that many overlook it, deeming it insignificant. But consider it similar to rust in a car. Initially, it may seem minor, but if left untreated, it can spread and become a significant issue. Addressing minor concerns before they escalate is always a prudent strategy in many facets of life, whether it’s a minor disagreement, a small debt, or a toenail fungus. Treatment with tea tree oil, applying a drop daily, can be beneficial. Moreover, it’s crucial to pair this with dietary considerations as detailed in our book, Candida Crusher.
