When treating fungal infections it is important eliminate sugar and starches from your diet. These feed the fungus making it difficult to treat. So yes, avoid the fun stuff like sugar, honey, bananas, dried fruit, potatoes, carrots, white rice, white pasta, white bread, and alcohol. Remove these foods from your diet for three weeks while using the cream and you may be pleasantly surprised. Well, as pleasant as one can be eliminating those foods.
What herbs are in the cream? The gorgeous Poroporo, Horopito, Manuka, and Tanekahe. Some Kanuka essential oil is included even though Manuka may not be impressed.
Poroporo has anti-inflammatory characteristics and anti-fungal actions. Horopito is an anti-fungal and anti-microbial. It works quite well combating fungal infections. It also gives the cream a beige/orange colour. Manuka has anti-fungal properties and can help with the itching. Tanekahe is included for its anti-microbial action. Fungal infections can become infected with bacteria so Tanekahe is around to help as is Kanuka.

*Please note that all balms, salves, & creams are packaged in glass or stainless steel containers. We do not use aluminium pottles, even though it would be really cool. Aluminium is a metal linked to Alzheimer's disease, dementia, & early osteoporosis, just to name a few. It loves to settle in the myelin sheaths which surround nerve tissues and in the fatty tissue inside bones. So, apologies, no metal containers & no plastic ones, either. Plastic chemicals are linked to autoimmune diseases, endocrine dysfunction, and some cancers. Since aluminium containers are lined in plastic, well, you get the drift.
