What are the natural treatments for foot pain symptoms
Here are some remedies for treating aching feet such as swelling, heel pain, inflammation, tenderness and bruising.
Alka seltzer treatment
This remedy is for general pain in the feet. Put four alka seltzer tablets into a pan of warm water, and place your feet in the alkaline solution for about 15 minutes to reduce the pain.
Do not do it if you are allergic to aspirin, an ingredient of alka seltzer.
Oatmeal, condensed milk and honey for foot pain symptoms
Mix 1 cup of oats meal, ½ cup of condensed milk, and 1/3 cup of honey in a dish pan. Place your feet in the pan and rub the content on your feet back and forth. Let it sit and soak for 20 minutes to reduce the pain.
Change heel heights
If you wear high heels a lot, your calf muscles can be tightened and this can lead to foot fatigue.
Do your best to limit the usage of high heel shoes. Use low risk shoes such as athletic and casual sneakers for treatment.
Avoid constricting foot wears
Constricting foot wears can lead to a burning pain and cramping in between the third and fourth toes. This is known as neuroma. High heel shoes and walking on hard surfaces can also cause neuroma.
Wear wider shoes, and insoles for shoes needed. When you add insoles to shoes you already have, you might want to stretch the shoes.
Here is a simple remedy for that. Fill a sock with sand and stuff it into your shoe’s toe-box. Wrap a wet towel around the shoe and let it dry out over the next 24 hours. Repeat this process if needed.
Hot water and ice remedy
Fill one basin with ½ cup of Epsom salt and hot water, and fill another one with ice. Put your feet in the hot water for 1 minute, (do not go above one minute) and then in the ice cube for 30 seconds.
Repeat this process for 10 minutes, and you will notice a remarkable improvement. This remedy may also help control high blood pressure and prevent varicose veins.
Turnip for treatment for foot pain symptoms
Cut turnip green into pieces and boil it until it’s soft. Mash it and apply the content to the bottom and top of your feet and bandage them in place.
Take a rest for 30 minutes with your feet elevated above the ground. This remedy can draw out the pain.
Arnica can be used to ease foot pain that rises out of excessive gym exercise or minor accident such as stubbing a toe.
