GA PODIATRIST, DR. DANE ULETT STATES, "IT'S AN UGLY PROBLEM MANY PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT.  BUT WHILE NAIL FUNGUS MIGHT NOT BE AT THE TOP OF YOUR LIST OF HEALTH CONCERNS, IT WILL BE WHEN IT EFFECTS YOU.  NAIL FUNGUS CAUSES VISUAL CHANGES IN THE NAIL, AND IT'S CONTAGIOUS.  NAIL FUNGUS IS CAUSED BY DERMATOPHYTES - FUNGUS THAT EFFECT THE SKIN AND NAIL.  FUNGI ARE FOUND EVERYWHERE.  YOU'LL SEE THICKENING OF THE NAILS;  THE NAIL WILL DISCOLOUR.  IT WILL BE YELLOW OR BLACK.  SOMETIMES THE NAIL WILL LOOSEN - IT LIFTS UP FROM THE NAIL BED.  IT'S COMMON FOR PEOPLE WITH NNAIL FUNGUS TO FEEL PAIN AS A RESULT OF THE INFECTION.  BUT IT'S TREATABLE.  ANYONE CAN GET THE FUNGUS, ATHLETES, THE ELDERLY, AND DIABETICS ARE AT A HIGHER RISK."

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS HAS BEEN SUCCESSFULLY TREATING FUNGAL NAILS FOR SEVERAL YEARS WITH LASER.  THE BENEFIT OF THIS METHOD OF TREATMENT IS THAT THERE ARE NO SIDE-EFFECTS.  WE NEVER EVER PRESCRIBE ORAL MEDICATIONS DUE TO THEIR TOXIC EFFECTS ON THE LIVER AND KIDNEYS.  TOPICAL MEDICATIONS ARE BASICALLY INEFFECTIVE FOR NAIL FUNGUS, BUT SUCCESSFUL FOR ATHLETES FOOT FUNGUS.

IF YOU OR A LOVED REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
