Toenail fungus is very common nail disorder called onychomycosis and it frequently causes the toenails to discolor, become soft, enlarge, peel and if left untreated, can cause loss of the toenail. There are many treatments available from homeopathic remedies to prescription drugs, however one that shows potential is the Cold laser treatment.
One of the problems with topical treatments is that the fungal spores reside in the nail bed securely protected by your nails. Topical nail products cannot penetrate deep through the nail plate to release the active ingredients into the epidermis of the skin under the nail, so treatment with topical are slow. Statistics say only a 10% success rate to topicals. Toes should be treated with the first signs of damage. If left until they are so bad, thick and dark, the treatments becomes longer and more expensive and could become impossible. Cold Laser treatment for toe fungus used in conjunction with other treatment modalities has the potential to deliver the highest clinical efficacy available.

You can see the big toe damage and the black spots on two of the middle toes. And then the after picture you can see the spots are gone and the big toe is normal. Time span is 8 months. Below is Kathlene's testimony:
This client had remarkable results. I only worked on the nails that were infected. We worked over the first winter doing a treatment every two weeks and then once a month. Summer came and then we just watched to see if there were good results. It takes quite a while for the nail to grow out. The left toe showed a litte more infection so we went with another few months of every other week. We now see the full results after letting the nail grow out for 5 months. Clients love that there is no pain to this treatment. Clients must follow protocol for best results.
