Dear Sandra
If you click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and do searches with the various diseases and conditions you list you will find answers to most of your questions. I do not have any recommendations for athlete's foot which needs to be treated medically with antifungals. The cause of deep vein thrombosis also needs to be diagnosed and treated according to the cause. The same applies to phlebitis.
Best regards
