I wonder why she said that without waiting
to see if the medication works.
Good luck and let us know how it is coming along.

Leona - that is scary!!
Make sure you do what you are supposed to do...even visualize the anti-biotics killing all the infection - (a battle between good and evil going on in your toe) and GOOD must triumph - and you have a happy toe that is beautiful!!

Leona:

Have you ever heard of ionized water systems that deliver various pH ranges of microclustered water? (Kevin, I'm talking broad knowledge here without advertising anything specific). Japan has been using these sorts of things for over 30 years -- they are recognized as medical devices in Japan (whole hospitals in Japan use nothing but these water systems to successfully deal with a host of problems, including giving patients back their health who were about to lose their feet/toes from gangrene). I've seen videos of actual individuals (given no alternative but to have amputation) doing foot soaks in this stuff for 2-3 weeks and walking out of the hospital with no infection. Google "Kangen Water" if you are interested -- the term "Kangen" will lead you to a particular company.....never mind the particular company -- it's the info. on the water (you have choices there with other companies) that might help you.

All the best,

Linda

Well it has been a while since I updated on my toe. I didn't lose it thank the goddess and they did surgery on it to get rid of the infection which was caused but a severly ingrown toenail. I guess it was a really deep one. I got kind of yelled at for waiting for so long before going in. But it looks like maybe it is on the road to recovery. They toop the sides of my nail off though and that is creepy but done the worst part was the shot to numb the toe that HURT.
