When walking I now get painful feet, feels like a brick has dropped on the top of my foot. I do have some de-generation. Anyone got any ideas on how to relieve the pain I’d be most grateful.March 17, 2009 at 6:27 am #444537
This may sound a bit off the wall but it works for me; crush two good sized garlic cloves and eat with food once each day, must be consumed within ten minutes as a chemical reaction takes place when crushed. use NZ grown not from China. I use only unrefined sea-salt (Celtic, grey in colour and slightly damp). table salt has had the minerals removed and you use valuable cell water to eliminate the sodium chloride that can effect your circulation.
I also look for Trans Fats (TFAs) in prepared foods such as pastry made with margerine, take-aways cooked in hydrogenated oils. any food that says "vegetable oil" on the label is generaly patialy hydrogenated or diesterised, both of which create dangerous fats.
Drink at least eight (8oz) glasses of water a day, try to walk as much as you can.
I suggest that you "google’ Salts that Heal and Salts that KillMarch 17, 2009 at 6:32 am #444539March 18, 2009 at 4:55 pm #444541
Thanks Bill H I will try thatApril 15, 2009 at 9:39 am #444543

Elvis, magnesium tablets may help as they have minerals which assist circulation in legs & feet.April 15, 2009 at 9:14 pm #444545
Thanks Twiggy, I have got back riding a bike for exercise so I am not pounding the pavement quite so much. Haven’t ridden one since 1975, got my trainer wheels off yesterday ha ha. Its a lot different to walking and being in a car, much more vulnerable and quite scary around the traffic so I keep to the quiet streets. Feet much better now thanksMay 3, 2009 at 6:18 pm #444547

Hi Elvis, I too have had painful feet and I found reflexology foot massage just wonderful for relief. Also a teaspoon of cod liver oil morning and night help with oil the joint. Take oil during meals then won’t repeat on you. Good luck. 😆May 4, 2009 at 4:47 pm #444549
Thanks celeb babe, Will try the cod liver oil, my feet have improved, I have been putting them in the foot spa at night and cut back on the long walks. Wonder if husband will give me a foot massage 😆January 7, 2010 at 4:51 pm #444551

Foot pain is a symptom of an autommune arthritis that could be diminished by removing starch from the diet. Look up AS [ankylosing spondilitis] Anything weakening cartiage would do that too.
Theres cartilage in the tendons and a lot in the pad in the heel. It shows up more in the achilles first with me.
Magnesium, rest, support, and the diet might help.January 8, 2010 at 8:16 am #444553
Because a lot of us work inside, and when we go out we are told to cover up and use Sunblock, a huge number of us especialy us oldies are vitamin D deficient, with out the right amount of vitamin D we cannot take up calcium no matter how much we consume. We need UVB radiation (not through glass) to form Vitamin D through our skin, because the sun is weaker in winter we should supplement with cod-liver oil or krill oil. Natural unrefined sea salt (celtic) is one way of helping to keep up colloidal organic minerals, I put it in my drinking water and fruit juices as well as on my food, table salt is refined and all the valuable minerals have been removed leaving sodium chloride (a poison), the copper and calcium in natural sea salt could help with repairing arteries and bone structure.January 8, 2010 at 8:32 am #444555

Such a lot of good advice in these threads. I will replace my iodised salt with the sea salt Bill H. I was interested in the cutting down of starch and the lack of Vit. D as well. I realise that I have become very lazy with cooking meals for myself and have become reliant on sandwiches with salad and meat as well as fruit. Veges as recommended bore me apart from coleslaw and juiced carrots. A plate of broccoli or cauliflower without lashings of cheese sauce does not appeal. So, all these bad habits are going to my hips. Better shape up or else it will be more than tired legs and feet. :lol::lol::lol:January 8, 2010 at 12:42 pm #444557
Another little secret Joybel, go to "The Skinny on Fats" and a whole new world will open up to you, when you have done that go to "The Oiling of America" and who know where it could end!January 10, 2010 at 3:08 pm #444559
Hi, I am a new member and all these threads are so interesting. I am going to have a look at The Skinny on Fats – sounds interesting. I severed my achilles tendon in April 09 and then broke the ankle on the same leg in July 09, so not only have I put on weight, I’m still strengthening the leg to be able to exercise and walk more. I think I’ll buy some magnesium as well.January 10, 2010 at 3:09 pm #444561January 11, 2010 at 8:10 am #444563
It is important to make sure and get REAL unrefined SEA SALT, it’s NOT white, it’s grey in colour and slightly damp, comes in "stone ground" and larger crystals and should be kept in the fridge or a cool dark cupboard a good one is "Celtic".
How about this; we are not designed to assimulate ELEMENAL minerals (ground up rocks) at our age we can only take up about four to five percent. we need ORGANIC COLLOIDAL minerals of which we can take up around 98% they are from plants and because our land where our food is grown is lacking in most of them we need to supplement. The plants take the elemental particles and reduce them to 7 thousand times smaller than a red blood cell and change the polarity, to get an idea of how small they are, imagine that a 1,000mg calium tablet is the size of the Earth, a red blood cell the size of your house, an organic mineral particle is the size of an old 5 cent piece and is negative charged. The tablets that you buy from the health shop won’t do us much good as at our age we can only take up 4-5% . Colloidal organic minerals are mined from prehistoric forests and suspended in pure water, we can take up and use around 98%. In all the health shops that I have checked, none had more than 28 minerals in their products. We need 90 nutrients every day and of these 60 must be minerals. That is the law of nature and like the law of gravity it will never change: 60 minerals,15 vitamins,12 amino acids, 3 essential fatty acids, 90 nutrients in total.January 14, 2010 at 8:20 am #444565

After reading that calcium is linked to heart attacks in older women I don’t take them now.” Cutting off my nose to spite my face,” would you say, Bill H?. I only use trim milk in my tea and coffee and in cereal when I have it. I suppose it is no wonder that I have aching bones and that Anklosing problem in the top of my spine as well as the heel pain which means orthotics and Kumf shoes. Oh dear, what a litany of woes. The brain is not too bad at the moment. :lol::lol:January 14, 2010 at 12:08 pm #444567
Oh dear! Joybels.
Lets deal with the "trim "milk first; Most milk that you buy is pasteurised thats bad enough, then they homogenise it, this brings in the "XO" factor (xanthine oxidase) within the milk fat, thus ptotecting the enzyme from being broken down by the normal processes of digestion, which, in any case, are slowed down and even stopped by the fact that cow’s milk in particular neutralises stomach acidity and other wise interferes with the human digestive processes. XO enzymes are able to trasit the stomach wall where it immediately plays havoc with the whole circulatory system by forming deposits in the arteries through out the body. Can you see where this is leading? Have a look at "Drink Your Milk It’s Good For You"
and a lot of questions will be answered.
When you have read all that come back to me and I might have some more "home" work for you.January 14, 2010 at 12:16 pm #444569
And I forgot to tell you that "Trim" milk has "oxidized" cholesterol added to give it "bulk" this goes right into your arteries to add to the build up of "inflamation", doctors love this, they get to send you for blood tests and tell you that your cholesterol is too high and then they put you on a statin drug and as I said, who knows where that can lead? Blaming true natural cholesterol for blocked arteries is the same as saying that fire engines start fires, but you will know all that when you read "The Skinny On Fats" won’t you?January 15, 2010 at 7:33 am #444571

Don’t worry Bill, can understand, and very interesting. You can press the edit button on your post, and change the spelling mistake, if you want to. 🙂
