Treating Fungal Infections of the Skin and Lungs
You can find fungus everywhere in both indoor and outdoor environments, and half of these fungi can threaten our health. If you find yourself dealing with a fungal infection, many complementary and alternative health options exist for fungal infection treatment. These home remedies can kill off the yeast or bacteria causing the fungal infections while reducing symptoms of the infection in the skin, lungs, sinuses, eyes, and other organs.
Exposure to fungus, mold, and other allergens can cause out of control immune system reactions in your body, the symptoms of which can include pain, headache, fevers, mucus production in the sinuses and/or lungs, and may in some cases may lead to death. More common symptoms include a fungal rash on the skin or some mild respiratory distress. More serious fungal infections include fungal pneumonia, fungal sinusitis, aspergillosis, fungal meningitis, and systemic candida albicans infections.
Fungal Treatment Options in Alternative Medicine
Apple cider vinegar is a common skin fungus treatment and may be used for internal treatment as well. Also consider probiotics in the form of pills or regular yogurt consumption, which can help support your immune system. Pair that with eating a couple raw cloves of garlic each day. The sulfur and other compounds in garlic (including ajoene) have powerful antifungal properties, though these are more effective as a fungal infection treatment via topical application than for systemic use through ingestion.

Would appreciate any insight please.
I have a lot of problems with sinus - headaches - ears - face aches sometimes - brain fog and memory also energy. I am sure I have fungus in my head. have had to take a lot of steroids and anti biotics over years (refuse to take them now). I am desperate for a cure. I feel as though I have no nostrils, can never breath through my nose an often get stuff going down my throat. Yellowy greeny stuff comes out my nose.
I have been reading about oxygen, colloidal silver, biotics, the candida diet (which is so so difficult to stick to and can be very expensive), and just do not know which way to turn. Has anyone here had the same problem and successfully eradicated it?
