Happy Feet

Have you noticed that  within less than a mile radius from home or work it is not hard to locate a nail salon where men/women spend on average around $960 annually on a no frills pedicure.  But you have to wonder is this really enough care for one of the most important parts of your body...your feet. I am amazed just how complex the foot really is. According to Wellness Magazine, the foot contains 26 bones, 133 joints, 107 ligaments and 19 muscles. The average wear and tear measured by the distance of a person's lifetime is about 115,000 miles. In order to maintain healthy feet, it takes more than the bi-monthly care we give them. Our feet need us to focus daily on keeping them pain free, protected from bacterial and fungus infections and well hydrated.This becomes even more important as we age.
There are several foot care practices that will not only help protect your feet but also will have some positive benefits for your overall health. You can help maintain healthy feet as you age by the use of the essential oils of eucalyptus and peppermint, tea extract topical, squalene, coconut oil, and shea butter into your daily foot care. Incorporating routine foot massage and reflexology has proven to be also extremely beneficial to not only your feet but to your well being.

Remember we want to have happy feet because if the feet hurt...I can personally vouch...when the feet hurt you will feel like you hurt all over.
