About a year ago I had a conversation with a friend who was telling me that, as much as she loves summer, she was dreading the onset of warmer weather. You see, she had a fungus growing in and around two of her toenails. Those nails were thick and yellow, to the point where she was embarrassed to take off her shoes in public.
With so many prescription and non-prescription treatments out there, it’s hard to know how to treat this type of fungus. One option for her was to go to her primary care physician, who might prescribe an oral antifungal drug. But those drugs can cause side effects like skin rashes or liver damage. Plus, she’d very likely need occasional blood tests to see how she’s doing with the drugs.
On the non-prescription side, much has been written about products containing harsh chemicals that can make toes look and feel worse instead of better.
The Ultimate Goal: Healthy, New Growth from the Nail Bed
“So what can I do about my toenails?” she asked. She knew I developed natural products and thought I might have a solution. I talked to her about diet; staying away from deep fried foods, having fresh fruit and vegetables every day, if possible. I suggested she visit a good chiropractor or massage therapist to help with circulation to the lower extremities. She said she’s done most of that and would like something topical.
It was at that moment I decided to create ToelievaTM, a liquid solution that fights fungal growth on the cuticles and skin around and beneath the toenail, while creating a beneficial environment for healthy, new growth from the nail bed. I wanted our new product to be 100% natural and safe, and for the formula and method of application to meet 3 key criteria. These criteria are good reasons to try Toelieva for your own toenail fungus, or recommend it to a relative or friend:
- Effective, All-Natural Ingredients – Our new product contains Undecylenic Acid, which scientists and others believe to be an essential ingredient for fighting fungus, and we provide it to you in a powerful FDA-established maximum strength of 25%. Another key ingredient, Organic Olive Oil, nourishes your damaged skin around the new nails as they grow and return to normal.
- Easy to Apply – With our brush applicator, you can easily coat the cuticle and skin around the nail (and between the toes, if needed), then massage Toelieva in lightly to help with absorption. The best time to apply is right after a shower.
- Ample Supply to Get You through Treatment – While affected toes should start to look better within a week or so, total nail restoration can take up to 4-6 months. So, it’s important to be patient and apply Toelieva daily. With our large 2 oz. bottle, you should have plenty of product to last throughout the course of treatment.
So How Did My Friend Do with Toelieva?
I’m happy to report that, as one of the first to try Toelieva, she’s ecstatic. She says the skin around her nails and cuticles looked decidedly better after a week of applying it every day. At that time, she went for a pedicure, and when the polish was stripped away after several more weeks of daily applications, her nails appeared even healthier. Last time I spoke with her she was headed to the beach for the weekend and not at all concerned about people seeing her toenails.
With Toelieva, you can have healthy looking toenails again without the use of oral antifungal drugs or harsh chemicals. And while getting to the finish line won’t happen overnight, I’m confident that, just like my friend, with slow but steady progress you can have your nails looking their best.
