Have you ever heard the saying… You are what you eat? Well, it may be true to some extent. Most people don't think that their diet can affect the health of your feet. The truth is... the condition of your feet can actually tell you a lot about your overall health and indicate a lack of certain food groups or vitamins in your diet. Typically, when discussing the benefits of proper nutrition, most people look at weight management, or heart health. However, proper nutrition can also improve the health of your feet. Our feet need good nutrition that supports healthy bone growth and blood circulation so the lower extremities like calves, ankles, and feet stay healthy and free from pain and discomfort. Remember, each foot has 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 tendons, muscles, and ligaments. What we consume, directly affects our feet which are complex structures that carry us for a lifetime.

One problem linked to nutrition, that can affect your feet, is too much inflammation. In general... inflammation is an essential part of the body's healing system. Without it, injuries would fester and simple infections could be deadly. Too much inflammation or chronic inflammation, however, is dangerous. Dr. Reminga talks about this condition and how it can negatively affect your feet and what types of foods can help prevent inflammation. Foods found in a Mediterranean Diet as well as dark chocolate can be helpful. Dr. Reminga also talks about Plantar Fasciitis, arthritis in the feet, Joint Pain, Gout, Psoriatic Arthritis, and Osteoarthritis for example. He also talks about the importance of Omega-3 as a way to lower the risks of peripheral artery disease and what foods to consume to get Omega-3 into your diet.

If you listen to Dr. Reminga in today’s program and you feel hungry afterward… it may be time to FEED YOUR FEET something healthy.
