Let me tell you what, dealing with foot pain has been nothing short of excruciating.
I developed plantar fasciitis back in July. My husband and I manage the West Camp at Whitetail Heaven Outfitters. Our location used to be an elementary school that has since been renovated and made into a hunting lodge. So the floors there are not very forgiving (I am sure teachers and nurses out there can totally relate). I am the head chef at West Camp and so I am on my feet all day long, and when I say all day some days we are talking around 15 hours. I love what I do there cooking and chatting with guests and making new friends but it has been pretty painful on my tootsies.
I have been in agony for months now. I have tried prescription Ibuprofen, icing the bottoms of my feet by freezing water bottles and “rolling” them a few times a day, shoe inserts, compression stockings, special shoes…. my next steps were going to have to be getting shots or possibly even having surgery.
My feet had gotten so bad that one Sunday I wore my black flat sole boots to church by the time the second hour came I was in total agony just sitting through service after walking from the car to small group then an hour later walking from small group to the sanctuary. I would have to pop my prescription just to run to the grocery store store quick. Every day life was painful.
I was about to either need to start getting shots or possibly even need surgery to relieve the pain. Both options I was truly dreading.
I was chatting with my friend Rachel and she suggested a way to help ease up the pain. I figured why not, I have nothing to lose and I sure did not want to get short or surgery!
Well, after just a short time on her suggested routine I went to church and out and about all day and again wore those same favorite black boots with flat soles. NO PAIN at the end of the day!! None. Zero. Zilch. Nada!!! Can you believe it?!?
All I can say is HALLELUJAH I cannot believe I have been 100% pain free for days now!! Now I can concentrate on my clean eating and weight loss journey and live the wife and mom life again without dreading having to walk. I cannot be more grateful for the relief I have gotten (not to mention how relieved I am to avoid painful shots and surgery).
If you have foot pain like I have experiences and would like to know my exact routine and what I am using just let me know and I would be happy to share that with you right away:
