Like most women in Seattle, you care about what you eat and how you treat your body. You eat healthy food, mostly organic. You exercise three to four days a week, including yoga or pilates. You get massages when you’re stressed. All in all you think of yourself as a healthy person.
That’s why even when it comes to healing a part of your body, like your feet, you want to make sure that you do it the right way – the most healthy way possible.
You’re not exactly sure how you got toenail fungus, perhaps it was the shower in the gym – but now that you have it you want to get rid of it. You’ve heard that certain oral medicines can do damage to your liver and that worries you. You’ve read about natural treatments and you’ve tried tea tree oil and a few other topicals. You feel good about that, but then you look at your feet. The fungus is still there. Yuck!
No matter how you justify not doing anything about it, the truth is your toenail fungus just makes you feel unhealthy.
Fortunately, there’s a treatment for fungal nails where you won’t have to compromise your health. Laser treatment is fast, takes only 30 minutes, and has no long term side effects.
How does it work? The laser light kills the fungus that lives under your nail without causing damage to the nail or surrounding skin. The Foot and Ankle Center of Lake City offers a Comprehensive Laser Treatment Program.
