I have advanced toenail fungus which recently gives intermittent pain
on the big toe.
Sea buckthorn is listed as "super effective", but what it does it contain
that can kill the fungus? And how do you use it for nail fungus - topically, or orally?
Or both?
Incidentally, I found a reference to nail fungus and turmeric. It said
turmeric protects nail fungus, but when blue light is shone onto a nail coated
with turmeric, the turmeric then kills the fungus (please do not look directly at the
blue light if you try this, it can damage your eyes).
There are new experimental drugs (porphyrins), not yet available,
which rapidly eradicate the fungus, even in a single session,
when they are activated by white light or red light. Even sunlight might work.
Red light is preferred to blue light because it will transmit better through
a fungus-infected, thickened toenail, and is safer to look at than blue
light (of course, you still shouldn't stare at it).
However, light alone will not kill the fungus. So are there any antifungal
herbs that might work even better if activated by white light?

Hydrogen Peroxide worked well for me. Repeated use, by putting tissue soaked in it, placed under toenail, and left until day is over, really works.

Correction: The reference said that "ground-state curcumin had a protective effect and caused a decrease in macrophage-induced destruction of T. rubrum cells (p<0.05)". This means it was curcumin, (not turmeric), that protected the fungus if the curcumin was not photoactivated (irradiated with light). I don't know whether the same holds true for whole turmeric as for curcumin, but it might. And the same reference adds: "Though other studies attribute innate antifungal properties to ground-state curcumin [38–40] {ground-state means not excited by light}, in the present work none of the concentrations evaluated were fungicidal". Well, turmeric is widely held to combat nail fungus even without irradiating it with light. When we use turmeric against nail fungus, do we need to shine light on the nail or not? What does experience tell us?
