Can You Catch the Nail Fungus?
In my previous post called “Ringworm causes psoriasis and it is contagious” where I have discussed the suspected psoriasis cause (ANS dysfunction + fungus) and whether it is contagious many people opposed that nobody ever catch the psoriasis from them.
They completely ignore the major additional factor – Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) dysfunction – which must be present in order to develop psoriasis. Without the ANS dysfunction the same fungi can cause probably just common ringworm infection which will resolve on its own in a few days or weeks.
On top of that I believe that ANS dysfunction in psoriasis is very possibly caused also by infection – viral infection. So even the ANS dysfunction is contagious.
In this post I am going to discuss the infectious disease which is also not transmitted that easily – nail fungus.
Nail fungus – is it contagious or not?
If it is a fungus then it must be contagious.
Do you catch nail fungus?
Because the health of the nail and quality of the nail structure and blood flow in the tips of the fingers must be altered (diminished) in order to allow the fungus grow deep into the nail.
Even people with nail fungus don’t catch the fungus from themselves! Many people have nail fungus just on one nail for years and any other nail on the hand or feet is affected.
And still the fungi causing the nail infections are contagious and scientifically accepted as contagious. Fungal infections generally are considered as very opportunistic infections.
The causes of nail fungus are different – focal infection (dental infections affect the parts of the body via meridians/nervous system), pinched nerves due to spinal disc degeneration, muscle spasms (ANS dysfunction, magnesium deficiency, viral infections,…).
Psoriasis – is it contagious or not?
The same applies in my opinion to psoriasis.
The blood flow in the area of the skin needs to be altered (diminished) in order to allow the fungi to bury into the skin and cause psoriasis plaque.
The causes of psoriasis are the same as in nail fungus – focal infection (dental infections affect the parts of the body via meridians/nervous system), pinched nerves due to spinal disc degeneration, muscle spasms (ANS dysfunction, magnesium deficiency, viral infections,…).
Diminished blood flow
Diabetics often develop nail or skin fungal infections on their feet because of bad blood flow there. It is not about blaming diabetes as cause of nail fungus – nail fungus lives there where there are the right conditions to survive for it.
Fungus doesn’t care if it grows on your thumb, index finger or middle finger. If there was a chance it would spread immediately, but it won’t. It won’t spread even on the other nails of the same hand because there are not the right conditions.
