Non-drug things that helped:
Antiperspirant: keeps athlete's foot problems away. Apple Cider Vinegar: 1/2 that and 1/2 water (1/3 - 2/3 if you can't tolerate it so strong) daily 15 min soak (don't wash off) will cure in a about 4-6 weeks. Use foot-sized tupperware, same batch for up to a week. Spray shoes with anti-fungal, change socks and towels often.
Magnesium: Ended muscular pain in back and neck so it's in the normal range. Reduced sinus inflammation - I'm almost normal! Ended neighbor's heart palpitations when doctor confirmed she had a deficiency.
Tea Tree Oil: 24 drops each tea tree oil and lavender oil whipped into 2 tablespoons of Gold Bond cream (could be any cream), a little rubbed into feet daily: anti-fungal (as well as antiseptic, anti-viral) and for some reason appears to have reduced swelling and pain in my feet as well.
It was great to hear from you. I'm sorry to hear that your family has been inundated with health struggles this year. We are having a cancer reprieve and are trying to make the most of it. It is certainly giving me the chance to get my head back above water and remember the good in life. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and will have a wonderful holiday season and new year.
