Thread Name: fingernail strengthening
Subject: RE: fingernail strengthening
Eat lots of tinned salmon (with bones). Eat lots of pulses like chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans, butter beans etc.
Eat lots of salads with raw spinach and raw red cabbage etc.
Eat lots of red meat as well.
And stuff like raw muesli with rolled oats and brown rice.
Your nails will soon be strong and will grow so fast that you'll have to file them every second day to keep them a comfortable length for fingerpicking.
Unfortunately, the side effects of changing to a diet like this can be
extremely , prolific flatulence. BUT this should go away afer a few years when your digestive system gets used to it.
Good luck !
