Bunions are very unpleasant bumps and real “nightmare” for those who have them. Getting rid of them can be bad process. These simple four natural cures for healing bunions can help you avoid surgery. You will feel your feet much better!
Bunions are big bony bumps caused by unusual growth of the inner portion of the joint at the base of the big toe. Bunions are salt deposits and the formation can be triggered by the flu, gout, tonsillitis, improper nutrition, poor metabolism, rheumatic infection, or simply by wearing uncomfortable shoes.
Here are some natural remedies that can help you relieve yourself of these unpleasant bunions.
Warm olive oil and gently massage the bunion and the entire foot for 15 minutes, twice a day. The massage increases blood flow to the toes and foot, enhances circulation and encourages the synovial fluid to move around the bones. This movement will lubricate the joints, dissolving the outer layers of excess calcium, gradually diminishing the size of the bunion.
Capsaicin is a substance of red pepper which actually eliminates the nerves of the fusion that can cause discomfort and pain. Cut on half red pepper and rub directly the juice onto the bunion. On the top of the bunion soil a tiny bit of petroleum jelly and then tie clean cloth gauze over like a bandage. Repeat two times a day. Apply the pepper on a small area of the skin first to make sure it does not irritate the skin. Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly after each application.
Castor oil has a lot of anti-inflammatory properties. They are very effective in reducing pain and swelling. Put ½ cup of castor oil in a pan and heat it until it is warm. Then, dip a thin cotton cloth into the oil and wrap the cloth around the bunion. Cover the compress with a towel so that the heat cannot escape. The heat will refresh and encourage blood flow to the area that is affected. This will relieve soreness. Repeat 3 times a day until the pain is completely gone.
Epson salt in its content has magnesium sulfate which actually minimizes pain and inflammation. Into a small tub or bucket of hot water, dissolve ½ cup of Epson salt and soak your foot in it for 20 minutes. Use this “therapy” regularly, at least two times a day. The salts will start decalcifying the joint and decreasing the bunion size.
