barefeetFoot pain can destroy the quality of life, preventing free movement further impeding good circulation throughout the body.  Everyday activities become a trial when every step taken creates pain.  Here today are a few suggestions for naturally clearing foot pain.

Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammation caused by excessive stretching of the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a broad band of fibrous tissue which runs along the bottom surface of the foot, attaching at the bottom of the heel bone and extending to the forefoot. Achilles tendonitis causes inflammation and degeneration of the Achilles tendon. The achilles tendon is the large tendon located in the back of the leg that inserts into the heel.  Herbal Remedy: This issue is quickly cleared by applying a BF&C Salve pack over the affected area.  Relief is often found quickly using the BF&C Extract internally and applying a pack of the salve over the affected tendon area.  Leave pack on all night.  Pack can be reapplied and left on during the day if needed.

A heel spur develops as an abnormal growth of the heel bone. Calcium deposits form apply-salve-to-flannelwhen the plantar fascia pulls away from the heel area, causing a bony protrusion, or heel spur to develop. Herbal Remedy: Apply BF&C Pack over affected area to dissolve spur. Heel Spurs are often cleared in six to ten days when packs are applied nightly. (The packs can also be applied during the day for faster healing.)

apply-flannel-to-cornBunions, Corns, Calluses; are some of the most common foot problems. A bunion is a prominent bump on the inside of the foot around the big toe joint. This bump is actually a bone protruding towards the inside of the foot. Some of the symptoms of bunions include inflammation, swelling, and soreness on the side surface of the big toe.

The Formation of Calluses is caused by an accumulation of dead skin cells that harden and slip-sock-over-pakthicken over an area of the foot.

Corns like calluses develop from an accumulation of dead skin cells on the foot, forming thick, hardened areas. They contain a cone-shaped core with a point that can press on a nerve below, causing pain.

Tailor’s Bunion, also known as a Bunionette form on the outside of the foot towards the joint at the little toe. It is a smaller bump that forms due to the little toe moving inwards, towards the big toe.

Herbal Remedy: Bunions, Corns & Calluses are slow to clear usually taking several months of continued herbal support to dissolve and complete clear the lumps & bumps.  Apply BF&C Pack daily over affected area.  In addition use the BF&C extract ½ to 1 tsp. three times a day in cup of hot water or juice.

Toenail fungus infection occur when microscopic fungi gain entry through a small trauma in the nail, then grow and spread in the warm, moist environment inside the socks and shoes. Fungal infections can affect the fingernails as well as the toenails, but toenail fungus is more difficult to treat because toenails grow more slowly. It occurs most often on the big or small toe, but might occur on any toe. Herbal Remedy: Black Walnut Salve and Extract are the most powerful anti-fungal remedies available.  Applying a application of Black walnut over the affected area will aid in clearing even the worst nail fungus infection.  See our Feet Info sheet for more detailed instructions.

Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection that causes red, dry, flaking skin, sometimes accompanied by pain or itching. The condition usually occurs between the toes or on the soles or sides of the feet. In its acute stage, the infected foot exhibits blisters that itch or “weep”. Athlete’s Foot can spread to the toenails, causing chronic fungal infections. Often when a patient thinks the feet are only dry and cracking, Athlete’s Foot is responsible for the problem. Herbal Remedy: Black Walnut Salve and Extract are the most powerful anti-fungal remedies available.  Applying a application of Black walnut over the affected area will aid in clearing even the worst fungus issues.  See our Feet Info sheet for more detailed instructions.
