Have you noticed that your feet have a peculiar form that causes an uncomfortable pain when you try to walk or when you are wearing your favorite pair of shoes. These forms are called bunions and they can get extremely painful. The good news is that they can be treated with natural remedies. Read on to find out how.
What are bunions?
You may have heard of bunions before and you may actually have them, but you don’t know how they appear and how to treat them. They are actually the salt deposits on your bones that accumulate and turn into excrescences. A poor metabolism or nutrition, gout or rheumatic infections are the main causes of bunions.
How to treat bunions
We will tell you about 3 natural recipes that will help you treat bunions in order to regain the nice shape of the foot and to wear every shoe that you want.
- If you can’t stand the pain and you think that the part where the bunion is formed is sore, you can use some shredded soap to massage the area, and, after you wash it, apply some iodine with the help of a cotton pad. Apply the iodine over the entire area with bunions. Let it dry and after that you can put your socks on. This procedure needs to be made for 30 days. You can try to make a mix from equal parts of lemon and iodine and apply it as a net over the bunions. The acid in lemons is able to dissolve the salt and can help you get rid of bunions.
- For the second recipe, you will need a tablespoon of bay leaves, previously crushed, and 300 ml of water. Cook this mix for 5 minutes and then let it rest over the night. During the second day, take sips from this drink. This procedure needs to be made 3 days in a row and, after one week of rest, you can repeat the treatment.
The results will be seen within 10 days. Keep in mind that you will urinate more often because the salt will be dissolved. If you want to make the bunions disappear, you should keep this natural treatment for 2 months.
- For the third and final recipe, you will need 5 crushed bay leaves and 100 ml of 96% alcohol to pour on them. You will need to let this mix rest for 7 days and then strain it. Before you apply this mix, soak your feet into a combination made of one tablespoon of baking soda and 3 l of water. After you soaked your feet, pat them dry and apply the mix and after that you can put your cotton socks on to keep your feet warm.
With these 3 recipes, you will eliminate bunions in no time and your feet will feel better. Now, you can wear any kind of shoe you want without worrying about the pain.
