Plantar fasciitis; Serious Foot Pain

The past three weeks have taught me all I never wanted to know about foot pain.  Dealing with a case of Plantar fasciitis I have had to learn quickly what works and what will not provide relief. 

Herbal Support for Foot Pain with Dara Dietz

The most effective way I have found to relieve the intense pain has been using hydrotherapy along with stretching exercises.  I quickly discovered the hot and cold changes, which increase circulation, have the ability to all but end even the worse throbbing in my foot.  The relaxing effect of the circulation on the Plantar fascia tendon allowed for a more effective stretch with much less discomfort.

My daily program began with a new pair of supportive shoes.  First thing each morning I applied a BF&C Salve Pack to the bottom of my foot and another one around my ankle.  The packs are held in place with the Press N Seal wrap and my sock.  With the pack in place and my shoes on walking was much easier.

My herbal therapy program:

1 tsp BF&C extract in cup of hot water 3 times a day.  The BF&C Formulas and Salves have the nutrients to strengthen and repair the damaged tendon.

1 oz Echinacea once a day for 4 days each week.

Did an ELF; Flushed my liver one day each week.

Yes, I used the Advil as needed for the pain.  The first week I had to use the maximum dose allowed.  By the second week one dose a day of Advil for pain control was enough.  By the third week the inflammation is nearly gone along with the pain.  I am now able to do a half mile on my treadmill to stretch my legs.  The rebuilding process is slow.  As long as the tendon is stretched and supported there is no pain.
