welcome to HealthcareMagic
I saw your picture and it looks like the white ridges seen on your toe nails are due to simple calcium and iron deficiency and nothing serious.So please do not worry as you saw on the net that the nail disorders are related to internal diseases it does not look like you have any of the problems you fear.You can start on a iron supplement and a calcium tablet.For the proper dosage as you have not written your age please consult a local family practitioner or doctor and get the needed medicine prescribed.
