If there’s anything worse than figurative cold feet, it’s literal cold feet: an uncomfortable, numbing sensation that often can’t be solved with a pair of socks, no matter how thick and fluffy!

Some have lived with this condition for years and the good news is there are plenty of remedies for cold feet that are inexpensive and can be implemented at home.

Understanding the Causes of Cold Feet

via complete pain care

As with any physical oddity, there could be a lot of reasons one might experience issues with cold feet. Understanding and identifying the source should always be your first step.

Peripheral Neuropathy includes some similar symptoms that you may want to enquire about. An overload of toxins, diabetes, and high alcohol intake are some common causes. This can be tested and treated. Speak to a trusted Doctor for further information.

Superfoods To Improve Circulation

via Super Herbal Foods

For starters, poor circulation to the legs is the most common cause of chills yet can also be one of the toughest causes to identify. Many factors can lead to poor circulation, be it sudden weight gain, an overworked heart, a physically inactive lifestyle, or even a life-long problem such as narrow veins. If you’ve experienced cold feet for the majority of your life, your circulation may be to blame.

The infographic above from Super Herbal Foods outlines some of the best foods that will get your blood pumping. Watermelon, Avocados, Cayenne Pepper, Garlic, and Dark Chocolate are just some of the recommendations that you can add to your diet.

14 Tips For Diabetic Footwear

Less common culprits include anemia and diabetes, but these conditions should be discussed with a medical professional and are not to be taken lightly, though both can be solved with diet and exercise along with changes to one’s lifestyle. The Infographic above from Fairway Drugs has some excellent tips including never walk barefoot, slowly break in new shoes, and keep your feet warm and dry.

On the other hand, if you’re experiencing cold feet and don’t think your lifestyle is directly to blame, you might just need a more natural remedy to promote healthy blood flow.

Build Strong And Flexible Feet

The infographic above from Fix has some excellent foot exercises that we know will be of interest to you. Stretches and toe grips will help to strengthen your feet and improve circulation.

You should also try massaging the balls of your feet with a tennis ball as shown above.

1. Promote Healthy Blood Flow with Exercise

It may not be the easiest on the list, but the health benefits of proper exercise are wide and varied. You don’t have to dive into a rigorous exercise routine right out the door but something as simple as rotating your ankles for ten minutes a day can work wonders.

Going for a walk is a low-impact and simple way to encourage circulation in your legs and feet that can be performed by people of nearly any age. If you spend most of your day sitting down, see if a quick stroll around the block is what wakes your feet up.

2. Check Your Footwear

via Fix

Manmade materials covering your body may not feel natural, but the way our bodies distribute weight across the soles of our feet and the pressures involved are as natural as can be. When we don’t wear proper shoes that support our specific foot shape we run the risk of causing damage to our ankles or even our hips and knees.

Find shoes that are properly fitted and don’t squeeze your feet too tightly. You’ll also want to ensure the shoes you have are properly cared for and that you replace them when serious signs of wear start to show.

The infographic above from Fix shows the cost of wearing high heels and has some excellent tips including regularly stretching your toes, calves, and tendons and reserving them for special occasions.

3. Engage in Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy, in this case, is just a fancy way of saying to treat your feet to a relaxing soak, and this Foot Soak and Detox from Listotic will energize your feet and make them feel brand new.

Another way is to fill two tubs with water. One should be warm and the other cold. Soak your feet in the cold water for two minutes, then alternate to the warm water, and repeat this for several cycles before drying off and putting on socks.

We also use a Foot Spa that is wonderful. It vibrates and massages your feet and is every bit as good as anything you would enjoy at a Day Spa.

4. Massage Your Feet Before Bed

It’s as simple as it sounds: Using warm olive or sesame oil, rub your feet with firm, circular motions primarily using your thumb. Spend at least five to ten minutes massaging before bed and you’ll probably sleep a little better while warming yourself up, too.

5. Check Your Dietary Habits

Getting out of whack with your body’s natural needs is as easy as can be, unfortunately, so check to ensure your diet contains a healthy amount of fish that can supply omega-3 fatty acids, along with common chill blockers like garlic and cayenne pepper.
