Bunions are actually salt deposits. Their formation is triggered by influenza, tonsillitis, gout, poor metabolism, improper nutrition, rheumatic infection and wearing uncomfortable shoes.
Bunions are a real “nightmare” -- it is hard to find a fitting footwear, they are irritating, and give a quite unattractive appearance of the foot.
In the evening, pour 300ml of water over a tablespoon of crushed bay leaf. Cook for 5 minutes. Keep the liquid in a thermos overnight.
Strain in the morning and take small sips during the day. Do not drink it all at once!
Repeat the procedure for three days in a row, and prepare a fresh drink every night. Repeat the treatment after 7 days.
Do not be surprised of the frequent urination. It is a sign that the salt in your body has started to dissolve and irritate the bladder.
You should notice some results within 10 days.
You will feel relieved and the joint pain will eventually disappear.
This treatment should last for about 2 months, and the bunions shall completely disappear.
Take 5 large bay leaves, crush them finely and pour over 100 ml of 96% alcohol. Let it rest for a week, then strain.
Apply this remedy on the bunions, but before you do so, you may want to soak your feet in warm water (3l water and a tablespoon of baking soda).
Pat your feet dry, apply the remedy and put on some short, cotton socks. The combination of iodine and aspirin works great in the treatment of bunions, joint pain and other growths.
Recipe 2: Regular soaps also relieve pain and inflammation caused by bunions.
Shred some soap, apply it on the sore spot and gently massage the area. Rinse, pat dry and apply some iodine in a net-like drawing.
The best way to do so is soak a cotton bud in povidone-iodine and draw a “net” over the bunions. Simply cross over some horizontal and vertical lines, a centimeter appart from each other. Iodine absorbs well when applied in this way. Let it dry on your skin, then put on your socks. Repeat the treatment for 30 days.
Treat your bunions using lemon juice and iodine in equal parts, a treatment that is also efficient in the treatment of “heel spur.”
