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

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!
