Recently, I read an interesting article on heel health, and was interested to read that diet can actually have an impact on the health of your feet. According to the article (Naturally Prevent, Soothe and Heal Cracked Heels and Feet, Naturalnews.com), “Cracked heels … may also be caused by dietary deficiencies. In particular, diets which fail to provide adequate zinc and essential omega-3 fatty acids may contribute to cracked heels and other dry skin problems. Zinc rich foods include oysters, organic chicken, crab, kidney beans, yogurt, and brown rice. Omega-3 fatty acids are largely found in cold water fish and healthy oils such as flax seed.”
Although I don’t necessarily agree with all the homeopathic preventatives and curatives listed in this article (mostly because they seem to involve way too much work and Heel Vitalityis far easier to use), I certainly agree with the first recommendation: “One of the most effective remedies for getting rid of foot cracks and dry heels is using foot socks in combination with healing oils and moisturizers. Before going to sleep, liberally apply one or more oils such as almond, grapeseed oil and/or olive oil to the heels and feet, put on a pair of thick cotton socks and then leave on all night. Other good oils and moisturizers include: lanolin, cocoa butter, shea butter, and coconut oil.”
Sound familiar? Yup, Heel Vitality is made with healing oils and moisturizers including grapeseed oil, coconut oil, and almond oil, and we recommend you wear white cotton socks after applying the balm.
How is Heel Vitality working for you to help heal your dry, cracked heels and skin?
