Natural Help For Cold Feet

November 5, 2009


If you suffer from that partnership-threatening condition known as cold feet in the back during the night then copy this out and show it to your partner.

Sometimes it is just a simple matter of not being warm enough and a cosy pair of bedsocks in a natural fibre like wool, cotton or – best of all – cashmere.  For many this can solve the problem, but for others it is a year round problem and tends to be related to circulation issues.  Certain conditions such as anaemia, diabetes and Raynaud’s disease (a circulatory problem in which the hands and feet are hypersensitive to the cold) may be to blame, and it’s advisable to discuss it with your doctor.

In the meantime, these natural tips might help – however bizarre they may seem!
1. Sprinkle a small amount of ground cayenne pepper in your socks and shoes.
2. Exercise regularly as it will help improve your circulation.
3. Don’t smoke as nicotine constricts blood vessels which affects normal circulation.
4. Comfort footwear comes first as if your shoes are too tight that will also restrict circulation.
5. Before bed have a relaxing foot soak in warm (not hot) water and put on those socks!
