Keeping feet healthy
People often underestimate just how important it is to pay attention to our feet. The average person will walk over 185,075 kilometres in a lifetime. Our feet endure tremendous amounts of pressure and rarely get the attention that they deserve.
It is estimated that roughly seventy-five percent of people will experience problems with their feet but will not seek treatment. However, there are specific issues that should not be overlooked because they can reveal more serious health issues that will need to be attended to. For example, flat feet can be a sign of Raynaud’s disease. Chipped or cracked nails can indicative of mineral or vitamin deficiencies. Diabetes can often be detected when your feet burn or break out in red ulcers. Rheumatoid arthritis is often associated with mysterious bumps on our toes. Heart problems and poor circulation can affect the shape, texture and colouring of our feet.
