IMG_7680FOR THE LOVE OF SHOES

How nutrition affects your feet!

Eating the right foods can help keep your feet healthy. Certain foods can increase the chemicals in your body that cause tissue inflammation. Both peripheral artery disease and diabetes can harm your feet by damaging the arteries that bring blood to your lower body parts. A healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables and low in saturated fats may help protect your feet from the complications that can occur with diabetes.

"When most people think about nutrition and their health, they have no trouble associating the foods they eat with weight loss or heart health," says Sherri Greene, DPM, a podiatrist in New York City who practices holistic foot-care. However, your diet affects many other parts of your body, including your feet. "When I explain to people that your feet are connected to the rest of your body, and what you put into your body is what makes up your body, they're like, "Wow!" "When they feel better after they change their diet, then they get it," she says.

Feet and nutrition: Fighting off inflammation and pain

One problem linked to nutrition that can affect your feet is inflammation, Dr. Greene says. Certain foods can increase chemicals in your body that cause tissue inflammation. This inflammation could appear in your foot as plantar fasciitis, which causes pain in the thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot, in your heel, or elsewhere in your foot.

Many common foods in our diet encourage inflammation, such as the refined grains, sugar, and trans fats in many baked goods and junk foods; the saturated fat in red meat; and the omega-6 fats found in many commonly used vegetable oils, such as corn, soybean, and sunflower oils. Good nutrition can also help protect your feet from these conditions, according to the National Institutes of Health.
