Itchy Feet Cure: Borax

Posted by Jessica (VA, USA) on 12/23/2007

I'm insulin resistant, so I have alot of the same problems that' diabetics do, including rough feet. I've tried so many scrubs and files and lotions in hopes of softening my feet. I suspect that I also have a systemic Candida infection, so I thought Borax would be good for my itchy feet. It worked wonderfully! My feet were so soft after I got out of the shower and have not been itching since. Once you get your feet nice and soft, you'll want to follow with a good moisturizer: that's where my next project lies.

It should be noted that in biochemically, borax prevents sugar from reacting with the body's sugar and protein. It prevents the protein and the body's organ from glycation, which is a factor in sickness in some diabetics. Yeast infections tend to occur those with high blood sugar, but it is the borax that prevents the fungus from utilizing the sugar and hence kills off the yeast infection candida. I had regularly itchy feet, and was cured completely after taking borax 1/4 teaspoon in one liter of drinking water, only once a week and also sometimes using borax as a cleaning solution for the feet. That also reduced my skin allergies too, which I suspect is the blood sugar reacting with certain fungus and other microbes. The thick dark skin were replaced with a more normal skin because the fungus couldn't grow, which allowed the feet to be healed completely.
