  1. Can please suggest a treatment for Plantar Fasciitis

    • Dr Malini Bhat says:

      These are some home remedies you can inculcate:
      • Warm some mustard oil and massage your ankles and heels with it for fifteen minutes. Massage gently in a circular motion and let the oil penetrate the skin as much as possible. Mustard oil has anti-inflammatory and pain healing properties that will remove the stress from the plantar fascia and calm the inflamed tissue. It is also rich in magnesium which is vital for the health of the muscles and tissues. Massage two or three times daily
      • Heat half a teaspoon of ghee and when it is hot turn off the heat. Add a teaspoon of turmeric powder to the hot ghee and mix it well. Swallow this mixture with a glass of warm milk every night before going to bed.
      • Grate some fresh ginger. Put to boil one cup of water and add one tablespoon of the grated ginger to it.Boil for one minute then turn off the heat and cover the pan. Leave it for ten minutes. Then strain the tea and drink it while it is still hot. Drink three cups of this tea daily
