Case Study – Natural Pain Relief For Bunions

“For the first time in the past eight years I can walk long distances (8-10) miles without nerve pain in my right foot.”

Do you suffer from bunions, hammer toes, plantar fasciitis or other painful foot ailments? Did you know there are natural, non invasive alternatives to surgery? Check out this success story…

Susan has received monthly massages from me for the past two years. When I first met her she suffered from debilitating foot pain due to bunions. She was not interested in the traditional medical solution which includes surgery and a long recovery period that would require her to be off her feet for weeks. In April of 2012 she purchased Correct Toes from me and started wearing them for a few minutes a day.

In three months she worked her way up to at least a half hour a day, usually wearing them on her daily walks.

Now for the first time in her adult life there is space between her big toe and second toe. She has improved her foot health and decreased her pain to the extent that she was able to hike long distances on her recent trip to Europe.

Here is a more recent photo of her feet in July of 2014. Notice the difference? More space between her big toe and second toe and, especially the foot on the left, her big toe points straight forward instead of to the side. Plus her bunion is much less pronounced.
