Foot Health: Make Healthy Food Choices

It is no secret that our food choices have an impact on the health of our feet, but most of us are unaware of this connection or choose to ignore it. To keep your feet healthy and performing optimally, it is important to maintain a nutritious diet.

Here are some tips to keep in mind when finalizing your menu:

By eating leafy vegetables, you will strengthen your immune system. Spinach, kale, and soybeans contain calcium and vitamin D.

You will feel energized and refreshed after eating a combination of fruits and vegetables in season. You will also replenish all your nutritional needs.

You can't go wrong with nuts such as almonds and walnuts.

  • Cooking allows you to learn about world cuisines and choose healthy recipes. Share a meal with your family while you prepare new dishes.
  • By avoiding deep-fried foods, you can reduce your cholesterol levels. To change the taste of food, you can always bake or steam it.
  • It is important to eat a nutritious diet to prevent foot fatigue and keep your weight under control. If you are overweight, your lower extremities are under undue stress, so you are more likely to suffer from flat feet, heel and arch pain, ankle sprains, arthritis, etc.

Custom orthotics offer much more than pain relief
