Love Your Feet: Best Foods for Foot Health

How Can Food Affect Your Foot Health? 

Cecilia has written a great article over at Your Podiatry Canberra about the best foods for foot health. Here is a little snippet…

There is a big distance between your mouth and feet but a strong relationship between poor diet and adverse foot health.  In this article, there will be a strong focus on peripheral neuropathy, but what is it? Keep reading to find out.

This article will cover:

  1. The Impact of Sugar and Carbohydrates on Foot Health
  2. What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
  3. Other Nutritional Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy
  4. The Impact of Salt and Fat on Foot Health
  5. Good Foods for Osteoarthritic Joints
  6. Nutrients for Wound Healing

Some of the information has strong evidence behind it, some of it is anecdotal. I will outline the current evidence in each section. In all honesty, there is a lot of waffle (pun intended) out there about nutrition. It’s important to see what sort of evidence is behind the waffle. Let’s see how many food related puns and references I can fit into this article!

    I want to make sure that I take good care of my feet. I didn’t know that different foods could help or harm! I’ll make sure that I understand the impact of salt and fat on my feet. Thanks for sharing!
