A bunion is an unnatural, bony bump at the base of the large toe where it ascribes to the foot. It develops when the pressure of your body’s weight persistently falls unequally on the joints and tendons in your foot, affecting the joint of the large toe to get bigger and stick out.
Anybody can develop bunions, but females are more prone to this bone deformity than men.
Castor Oil for bunions
It is full of anti-inflammatory foods which are best in reducing the swelling and diminishing the ache. Put half a cup of castor oil in a pan and high temperature it till it is quite warm. Dip a thin cotton cloth into the oil and shawl it around the bunion. Cover the heating pad with a towel so that the heat does not escape. The heat routes the flow of blood to the part and relieves soreness. Redo 3 times a day till the ache subsides fully.
Turmeric is best for bunions. Its key component, curcumin, has a pain-blocking ability and also helps decrease inflammation. It can be applied topically as well as orally.
Use of turmeric
Make a paste of ½ teaspoon of turmeric powder and a little olive oil. Use it directly on your bunion. Redo 2 or 3 times every day for several days.
Red Pepper remedy
It is full of a substance called capsaicin that eliminates the nerves of the compounds that cause ache and discomfort. Cut 1 red pepper in half and rub its fluid directly on the bunion. Slur a little petroleum jelly on top of it and tie a thin clean fabric or gauze-like a tie-up.
Take olive oil and massage the bunion, toes and lower foot for 14 minutes two times a day. The massage increases circulation and increases the plasma flow to the foot and toes and encourages the synovial liquid to move around the bones again.
Massaging the affected part every day is a popular method to alleviate as well as stop this problem. This therapeutic way helps increase blood circulation to the part and provides relief from the general pains.
Everyday massage will even decrease the size of the bunion and make the affected part less susceptible to corns and calluses.
