Products used: Coconut oil, tea tree oil, kerasal nail and oregano oil – but used one at a time for a month each
After trying the mixture of the tea tree oil, oregano oil and coconut oil for a while, I became tired and impatient, and sort of lost my motivation to keep things scientific. 🙁
I decided to try each product I had been using individually, to see how effective they were on their own.
At some point, I was applying something that wasn’t working. The fungus came back with a vengeance! However, I didn’t even know that it was happening until I started using something that DID work. Once I did, it totally gobbled up the infected tissue quickly.
I was really confused by this. I was watching the nail bed recede and I kept clipping away the nail. My heart sank! I thought, am I somehow feeding the fungus? No. The damage had already been done earlier, but it was invisible. It didn’t become apparent until I switched to the REAL antifungal which started doing its work. What was happening was actually a good thing and I didn’t see it.
Because of this confusion, I never figured out exactly what the ‘good’ thing was! And because of that, I was in for several more months of experimentation.
