Hi,

My boyfriend is dealing with pain in his feet.  He is taking medication that is helping, but is dealing with side effects from the medication that are not pleasant.

I don't know his BT (he's never been typed).  He can't work due to his feet for the time being so we are really strapped for money.  Anyone have any natural inexpensive pain reliever ideas?.

BTW,  i tried to type him but it didn't work out because i was not pricking him hard enought, so he didn't want me to do it anymore.  So i had already put water on the spots.  Besides the test being past the expiration date, does anyone know if it would still be good because i got it wet?.

Thanks!
Mickey

plantars fasciitus, also called "heel pain" is debilitating and ...well maybe he has that ..or ...maybe something else...but if that, he should put cold compresses on his feet (I used a bag of frozen peas, still in the bag mind you) it just felt the right amount of cold. Then he needs insoles or orthotics and must wear shoes  all the time, no barefoot boy...oh and no flipflops.... I could say more, and you'll find more somewhere in the archives, but we don't know if this what it is....

Jayney-O,

Thanks for your prompt reply!.  You hit it on the head with the plantars fascititus.  Well we are pretty sure that's what he has anyways.  He has no health insurance, so he is going to the state hospital, need i say more.  You may have heard of Valley Medical in San Jose, since you bought your bread in Santa Cruz, i'm assuming you are from this area?.

Thanks for the great tips!.  I will do a search in the archives.


Thanks!
Mickey

this is the antiviral protocol...............kinda wonder if his problem is caused by a virus. I have found Heallix    http://www.heallix.com       to be very good w/ lots of things. You can use it internally and externally. Externally he would use it straight. Internally, he would use it 3 T in a glass of water 3 times a day. It doesnt taste bad, just a bit like apple cider vinegar, but you can dilute it down weaker. Just be sure he does the 3 T, three times a day if he tries it.
Also want to mention there were lots of comments made about people eating nightshade veggies with all kinds of skin afflictions popping up. Maybe that is contributing to his problem. Just a thought. I remember one person saying it took 3 mths for the neg effects to leave their system and the skin prob to go away.

I think italybounds advice is very good, there really are no skin or musclarsketetal diseases, these are only symptoms of some other problem.  Not sure I would recommend helix, but I don't have experience with it.  It might not be a virus, but a sign of something eles.  In the meantime, to relieve the pain I would try epsom salt soaks, emu oil or, a capsicum tincture or even better a capsicum tincture mixed with some castor oil, use a wash cloth and apply with friction

Probably not "strong" enough, but try the Weleda and Aveda 'Foot Balms'.

I have plantar fascititus and I have been given these special strap on boots to wear to bed at night that keep your foot flexed because with plantar fascititus, your foot relaxes and pronates at night when you sleep and all the little torn tissues in the arch of the foot heal in a shortened fashion.  If you keep your feet flexed all night, the tissues heal elongated and then when you get up in the morning, and step out of bed you don't have the burning pain - because when you step down all the tissues rip again if you have not kept your feet flexed!  Ouchie!  

Also get a golf ball or something about that size and while he watches tv or whatever, (sitting down), have him put the ball under his foot and roll it around the underside of the entire foot and then also up and down.  It will hurt so have him go gentle and then as time goes on, he will be able to get in deeper and deeper with the ball.  It will really help.

Also have his stretch his gastroc (big calf muscle) alot!  Two or three times a day holding for at least 20 seconds each time and repeating.  Plantar fascititus is partly caused by the big calf muscles tightening up and pulling on the heal and into the foot.

And finally, if you can get some good lotion and rub his feet, it will help immensely.  My husband rubs mine and wow!  You have to rub and rub and run until the pain really subsides.  Takes about 15-20 minutes per foot.  It is so releaving and he will love you for it.

Hope this helps... it comes from having this for two years, seeing the doctor about it and researching the web.  If you google plantar fascititus,  you will get all kinds of info. and help.

plantar fascititus is listed as a symptom of low thyroid. Maybe have him take a look at the symptoms and see if they apply to him.
