Foot Pain, Fatigue and Nutrition.  Many Americans suffer from foot pain.  Like most types of pain many make the assumption that their problem is physical in nature.  While this is the most likely scenario, if you suffer from chronic foot pain and nothing has helped, the problem may lie with nutrition.  In fact It may mean that you’re either not eating enough dietary fiber, or that your body has difficulty digesting, absorbing and using fiber.  Of course the last possibility is that you’re not eating the right type of fiber.

So where should your fiber come from?  I bet you guessed whole grains.  Am I right?  Sadly, that is not such a good idea.  Whole grains contain several chemicals which actually harm your digestive tract.  In fact, many refer to them as anti-nutrients, and there are two types.  The first type is enzyme inhibitors.  These inhibitors interfere with your body’s enzymes.  Your body needs these precious enzymes to break down your food so your body can digest it.  Otherwise you can’t get the valuable nutrients the food provides.  The second type of anti-nutrient is harmful agents that can kill the healthy probiotic population in your small intestine.  There is, however, a work around.  Fermented grains do not pose these problems.  What most people don’t realize is that your fiber should come from fresh fruits and vegetables.

How can I tell?

So how can you tell if your foot pain is nutritional in nature?   Here is a list of problems you may experience along with your foot pain:

  • Always tired
  • Lack of appetite
  • Grinding of the teeth
  • Unexpected weight loss or difficulty gaining weight
  • Stiff ankles

These may be signs that your pain may be from a nutritional problem, and not a physical one.  If you call our office and set up a consultation, we can do some preliminary testing to either confirm or rule out nutritional stress.  We accomplish this using precursory testing and Bio Impedance Analysis.  Both of which are scientific and based on sound medical principles.  If it is physical in nature, we can help with the right combination of cutting edge orthotics, home exercises and chiropractic care to get back up and running.
