Believe it or not, our finger and toe nails can tell a lot about the overall health of our entire bodies! You may notice that your nails can have some vertical or horizontal lines, which can be colored white or black. They may have ridges or even some discoloration. They can be brittle, thick, slow or fast growing, etc. A quick glimpse at our finger nails gives us a look of our state of health!
If you are noticing some changes in the normal appearance of your nails, you may want to have them examined by a professional, as it may be an indication of a serious issue. However, most of the time it is nothing, and the simple application of panchgavya can cure any issues.
Dry, Brittle or Cracked Nails
This issue is quite common, especially in women, and in the cooler seasons as Vata is predominant. A vata imbalance will cause dryness in nails, skin and hair. Gotirth ARK can be taken internally to help settle this vata dosha imbalance. Taking 1-2 tsps. of Gotirth Ghee will also nourish the insides, balancing the dry, light qualities of Vata with its oily, moist and heavy nature. Panchgavya can also be used topically. Gotirth Ghee, ARK, PureSkin lotion OR the massage oil can all be applied to the surface of the nail. This will help nourish the nail and cuticles, healing and preventing cracked and brittle nails.
Infected & Discolored Nails
Discoloration can be a sign of a bacterial or fungal infection. This is more common in the toe nails, and can be a bigger problem in between toes (athletes foot). Luckily, cow urine distillate is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-microbial. You can easily apply Gotirth ARK, Gotirth Dermol or Gotirth PureSkin to the affected area 2-3 times daily until cleared.
By regular application of the above mentioned products, you can cure, prevent and maintain long, strong healthy nails!
