My girlfriend has bunions, falling arches, bone spurs....and size 5 shoe size, and complains bitterly about not finding nice shoes in her size! LOL
So, I read somewhere that if you liberally rub castor oil on your feet, and then put on a heavy pair of flannel socks, that this relieves many foot problems. So, for 2 months, she's been doing this. When she gets home, she puts the socks on and an old pair of sneakers, and goes about her business. At first, she wore them to bed with bags over her feet, must to the chagrin of her husband! But she said that she notices a great deal of difference in the relief of foot pain.
I also read somewhere that putting grated carrots on your feet, wrapping them and sleeping with them also is does amazing things. She has also tried this last weekend, but I haven't talked to her yet (she lives in Switzerland).
