Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain, and not many are aware that homeopathy can be very helpful in treating plantar fasciitis.
The plantar fascia is the tissue under the foot that forms the arch, and when it becomes inflamed or irritated can lead to this painful condition.
It may also occur in individuals who do a lot of standing, walking or sporting activities, usually due to overuse.
Symptoms usually start gradually with pain on the heel that may radiate forwards into the foot. The pain is usually worse on waking and improves with the movement of the foot, but it usually worsens after standing for very long or after exercising.
Plantar fasciitis can take longer to heal, and it may involve the use of several therapies with conventional treatment.
My partner had suffered from plantar fasciitis for quite a long time, being a sports person. He did a lot of exercises, cold hot compress, physio, using a cast on his leg to sleep….even taking several homeopathic remedies based on a more classical approach.
Homeopathy was what helped him to get rid of plantar fasciitis, but it took nearly a year!
The second time it happened after playing football, we started on the remedies straight away but the progress was very slow.
At that point, I had meet Dr Prasanta Banerji in London, and I became fascinated with his results. So on coming home, I switch to the Banerji Protocol for plantar fasciitis, including Rhus tox and Symphytum.
THE RESULT WAS AMAZING!!! The pain was gone in about a week, although he felt relief from the first day.
Of course, everyone is different, and some people may take longer to see results from this protocol or may need different remedies.
