Toenail fungus is one of the most common health questions directed towards our Seagate website. A customer named Mariel wrote to us in December- “How many and how often do I need to take the Olive Leaf Ext caps if I’ve candida overgrowth, one toenail half infected, sinus infection, itchy scalp. Thank you!

Seagate replied:

Hi Mariel,
You have a lot going on.

We cannot make medical claims for the Olive Leaf since it is a supplement.

But it is generally used 3 capsules 3x per day. It is an excellent combination when using the OliveViate around the toenail.

For candida also make sure you go off carbs and sugars so that you are not feeding it while trying to cure it. Consider reading Doug Kaufmann’s book The Fungus Link to learn more about the causes and treatments of fungal disorders including his Phase I Diet.

For the sinuses, I would use the Olive Leaf Nasal Spray.

For the scalp, you can open a capsule of the olive leaf and apply it directly making a paste or use something such as the OliveViate, which is also good for applying around the toenails.

Thank you, Seagate

The itchy scalp and toenail can be related to fungus. Certain things such as diets high in sugars or carbohydrates can feed the fungus, as can the regular use of antibiotics which can also stimulate candida outbreaks.  This can be the result of the antibiotics killing off the bacteria in your system which removes the candidas’ competition for food, water and a space to grow.  Many women experience this with vaginal yeast infections immediately after antibiotic use.

Or you can take a dive and swim around with the friendly nurse sharks and get away from all the land-based fungi. This fellow below looks like he is moving in for an attack. However, this species is generally very docile unless provoked.  They feed off the bottom, have thousands of small teeth, and use suction to draw food into their mouths. You can generally tell by their behavior whether they would mind being petted.  Most behave like pet dogs, following a diver around for a long time, hoping to get a scrap of food. However, they have been known to become aggressive if they are poked or stepped on. Their powerful jaws, made for crushing shells of crustaceans living on the bottom, can cause a lot of damage to your hand if they are provoked and become defensive.
