Hey, guys, Axe here. Today I’m going toshare with you my secrets to curing plantar fasciitis, and I can tell you from being atriathlete myself, over the years I’ve struggled with injuries and pain like plantar fasciitisand ITB syndrome and other injuries that for most people they have to live with for a longtime. But what I did was I did research and found the natural cures and natural ways toreally improve plantar fasciitis. Now, there are four secrets to curing plantarfasciitis. Number one, doing deep tissue work on the area; number two, stretching; numberthree, there are actually nutritional foods and supplements that can cure plantar fasciitis;and last but not least, strengthening the
muscles of your feet.So let me go through the four ways that you can cure your plantar fasciitis. Number one, deep tissue massage. You can hirea massage therapist or the cheapest, most effective way to do it is either get a tennisball or a baseball at home, or my favorite is a rolling pin, and put this right underyour foot here like so. You can do this barefoot or with a sock on, and really just kind ofgoing deep over time, stretching out that tendon. What happens when you have plantarfasciitis, that tendon and fascia becomes very, very tight and it starts to stretchout, just like if you pulled a muscle on your
low back or let’s say your neck. Getting deeptissue massage breaks up the scar tissue, relaxes the muscles. So going back and forthabout two minutes at a time, really just kind of getting in that one little area like so.That is the number one thing you can do to help cure your plantar fasciitis. And I woulddo this twice, two to three times a day for about two to five minutes. Start off at two.Work your way up to five minutes. The second thing you want to do to cure yourplantar fasciitis is do deep stretching. I would go and get a block, or a set of stairsis the easiest way to do this. And really, again, find a set of stairs and really justkind of stretch that area. Lean up against
there, so doing deep stretching of that plantartendon. The third secret to curing plantar fasciitis,and by the way this is very, very important, is getting certain nutrients in your bodythat help relax tendons. Those nutrients are: number one, magnesium. Magnesium is essential,doing about 500 mg a day. I would do 500 mg right before bed. That relaxes that muscle.That’s the number one nutrient for healing plantar fasciitis. Also, along with magnesium,doing vitamin B5. It’s called pantothenic acid. That’s been shown to help relax themuscle and help heal the plantar tendon. Number three is fish oil. Getting more Omega3s inyour diet can also help heal that area. So
remember magnesium, remember vitamin B5 andalso doing, as we talked about, fish oil, and then vitamin C can also help with theabsorption of B5, another good thing to do. But make sure you’re following an antiinflammatorydiet. Getting those supplements will help relax that plantar tendon. And last but not least, one of the main causesof plantar fasciitis is actually not wearing the right type of shoes and having weak footmuscles. Our bodies were meant to be moving barefoot. That’s our original design, walkingbarefoot, where a lot of these shoes today cause us to compensate and only use certainareas of our foot, and so actually most of
our feet muscles get weak. So actually walkingaround barefoot or switching over to barefoot shoes, these are the original Vibram shoesthat I have, these sort of barefoot shoes. They really actually strengthen your tendon.Now what I wear today are these Merrells, which don’t have the five fingers but theystill have these Vibram bottom. So this is more of a barefoot shoe. Wearing barefootshoes will help strengthen your calf muscles. It’ll help strengthen one of those many, manylittle muscles within your feet. It’s going to help raise your arch. So that’s actuallygoing to help strengthen your foot, longterm help improve your plantar fasciitis.
Foot Surgery for Rheumatoid Arthritis Patient Testimonial
Well, first of all, let me start off by sayingthat I have been in pain for quite some time. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis,and living with it for about five or six years. My foot, my left foot, had gotten so bad thatI started to walk like a cripple. I’m a teacher, I work with students, I run up and down thehalls, and I just couldn’t take it anymore. I got to the point where I couldn’t even getup in the morning. So, I decided, I just made a decision, a conscious decision, to go andfind some help. I went to a pediologist, and she referred me to Colon. And I called Colon. He asked me to come in, did an xray, and told me everything that I neededto have done; and I was so nervous because
I did not want any type of surgery. But, honestlybecause of how everyone made me feel in the office; when I say that I mean, just the warmth,the friendliness, the relaxing energies there, I just felt good. I felt like I could actuallytrust this . I knew that I had to go through this in order to get where I neededto be. He was wonderful. He was absolutely wonderful. My hero. Going into the surgery,I didn’t know anybody, I was kind of nervous. But when I saw Colon I felt like it’sgoing to be all right. Everything is gonna be fine. Since the surgery, it’s been about,about a month. I’ve been in a boot. I’ve had to do foot/ toe exercises. And now I’m walkingfine. I’m wearing a gel pad, which will protect
the area during that time and will help thenerves reconnect in about 46 weeks. So, I should be back in shoes, and back in heels,at that time, and 100% recovery. And, I feel great, I mean it’s just a little sensitivein that area. I healed so well that it doesn’t even look like I had a cut. This office isjust the most friendliest office. I wish all of my s offices could be like this.Whoever set up the customer service or trained everyone, they did a fabulous job, becausethey’re right on point. And, it’s just the best experience I’ve ever had..
