Our nails, like the outer layer of human skin and hair are made of keratin (structural proteins). The appearance of our skin, nails and hair are a window into our internal health. Lack of keratin is why nail problems increase with age. It’s the changes in the shape, colour, or thickness of your nails, as well as swelling, bleeding, or pain that signal serious health problems, which include our thyroid, kidney disease, heart, diabetes, or anemia.
It’s a good idea to moisturise your nails regularly, especially the cuticles. Soften the cuticles and push them back. Break any old stress habits of biting or chewing your nails. Ensure you cut your toenails short and straight across to match the shape of the front of your toe, as curved nails can become ingrown! Also, wear shoes that fit properly. If you have fungus in your big toenail/s consume several spoonfulls of organic raw coconuts oil daily – it takes time but eventually it will clear up.
Anti-Oxidants save our cells (including our skin) from environmental damage which stop free radicals destroying our DNA, collagen and elastin. They help boost cell repair, stimulate collagen production and reduce blotchiness. So if you have a nutritious organic diet and supplement with Vitamin C-complex, Liquid Bs, Ionic minerals, Vitamin E (all 4 of them), Alpha Lipoic Acid, Coenzyme Q10, Selenium, Vitamins D,E, B12 (sublingual methylcobalamin), and rub your body and face with transdermal magnesium chloride. These nutrients will feed your cells into producing a younger, more radiant, healthy you. Have the best day ever.
