Ailment: Athlete's foot
Borax as a source of boron. Boron deficiency, supplementation, chelation, heavy metals, fluorides, fungicide, anti-microbial. How to use borax both internally and externally.

I've had athletes foot on and off for over 20 years. It mostly manifests as smelly feet and rash and scaly skin. Tried creams and they work ok, but I tried borax and the itching pretty much disappears immediately. I put 1 - 2 cup in 5 litres of hot water and soak my feet for 20 minutes. Within 24 hours I see a huge improvement. I'd recommend do this every day for 2 weeks and then once a week if you have a tendency to keep getting it .

I've had athletes foot on my left foot for ten years. Weird how it is on one foot and not the other. Anyway, I wet my foot and then rubbed and massaged about a half teaspoon of borax powder over all the infected, red, cracked, itchy, peeling area. The borax partly dissolved and felt soapy. I then put on a sock, and kept it on overnight. After a week of doing this every evening, my foot is dramatically better almost completely healed it seems. However, I will keep it up once a week for several months because I know this fungus is deep in the skin and around the nails.

Five years ago I had really bad tinea athletes foot. I read an article called The Borax Conspiracy and it stated that borax was a natural remedy for fungal infections so I gave it a go. I wet between my infected toes and then poured on Borax powder straight out of the package then put my socks on whether I was going to bed or going to work. Result no more tinea athletes foot in the past 5 years.

I've had smelly and itchy feet for years, and none if the creams and powders I've tried have really nailed it. My girlfriend told me about borax. Finally she bought a box for me. After a shower while my feet were still wet I took a handful and rubbed it into my feet and toes. Instant relief! I have done it a few more times over the last few weeks and it looks like it is clear. PS I put a little borax powder in all my shoes esp. sports shoes too.
