5 Ways To Soothe Your Foot Pain

Stop those aching foot pains!
"When your feet hurt, your whole body hurts."
Your two feet carries your entire body and all of that pressure can lead too pain. If you have a routine of standing for too long, you may be experiencing achy feet and you may also be looking for a way to end the pain. Read five ways to help soothe your feet's pain:

1. Hot Water Soaking

The best way to soothe foot pain is to pamper your feet for a half hour using peppermint oil and hot water. If you don't have peppermint at home, use a strong cup of peppermint tea added to hot water. Epsom salt also relieves sore aching feet by relaxing and drawing out the soreness. Take three tablespoons and add it to the tub. Note: Epsom salt can make your feet dry, so apply moisturizer after treatment.

2. Mustard Seeds

Mustard seeds are one of the best cures for foot pain because they help to remove the toxic water from the body, improves blood circulation and removes inflammation. Here's what you need to do: Take a handful of seeds and grind them. Put it in a half bucket of warm water and soak your feet for ten minutes to see the results.

3. Ice

Ice therapy is a good way to reduce pain and swelling of feet. Crushed ice is good to reduce inflammation. Don't apply the ice pack for more than ten minutes at a time because it will damage the skin and nerves.

4. Foot Massage

All you have to do is roll your bare feet over a tennis ball for several minutes until you feel relief! Fast, easy and you get results almost immediately.

5. Cayenne Pepper

This pepper contains a rich source of capsaicin which gives instant relief from frequent muscle aches and pains. Sprinkle some cayenne pepper into your socks before wearing them. Your feet will feel warm and you won't feel pain. Give it a try!

Fall Hiking Tips

Enjoy the fall season and go hiking! In many areas, this is the best time to hike the trails. The days are getting shorter and the leaves are starting to turn. There is more wildlife to see and the cool air means you will have an easier time on the trail!

5 tips that will hiking during the fall even more enjoyable:

1. Stay comfortable. Staying comfortable on the trail is as easy as "wearing layers." The morning chill can give way to bright sun and nice temperatures. A heavy jacket you're wearing in the morning can become too warm in the afternoon. Three to four layers and convertible pants will add flexibility to your trek. As you get warmer you can shed layers. If things get really warm, convertible pants allow you to zip off the legs, instantly turning them into shorts. Whatever you do don't forget to wear a hat. It can help keep you warm in the morning and cool in the afternoon. Bringing a backpack is convenient when you can put your extra layers of clothing in it.  

2. Get an early start. Shorter days means you need to maximize every minute on the trail. You will be rewarded with beautiful sounds of songbirds and the bustle of wildlife activity. Remember the sun will set earlier, so don't get caught out in the dark on the trail.

3. Move quietly. As the leaves turn and start to fall off the branches that hid wildlife in the forest before, you might just catch a glimpse of the forest animals. Walking quietly will be rewarded with opportunities to see many animals closer than you normally would. If you live in an area where there are bears or cougars, then don't follow this advice. As a matter of fact if you are hiking in bear country during the fall you should make extra noise!

4. Eat some food. Snacking as you're hiking is like adding fuel to your car; it keeps you moving. Avoid having a heavy meal before or while on the trail. If you eat a lot, your digestive system will rob you of body warmth.

5. Take a friend with you! The fall is the perfect time to go hiking with friends! No insects, cool temperatures, no crowds, greater chance of seeing wildlife, and clear skies all add up to a great first time experience.
