Quick treatments for warm feet in winter

 Quick treatments for warm feet in winter

With the cold winter, many suffer from cold feet, and there are several factors that cause cold feet, such as: anemia, hypothyroidism, cold, diabetes, vitamin deficiencies, acute stress, smoking, high cholesterol and medications.

Here are quick home remedies for cold feet

1. Massage

Topical application of certain oils such as mustard oil, olive oil, sesame oil, and sunflower seed oil may provide relief. This is due to the anti-inflammatory property of the oils which promotes skin barrier repair and blood supply to the area.

What to do:

We prepare a little sesame oil, mustard oil or olive oil, and then heat it. Put the oil on the feet and then massage gently for 5-10 minutes, then put the oil on the cotton socks. We do this before going to bed every day; Because it may help keep the feet warm.

 2. Soak the feet in warm and cold water

Warm water promotes blood flow while cold water helps reduce the pain associated with the condition.

What to do: Soak the feet alternately in hot and warm water for 10 - 15 minutes.

We dry the socks and wear them once a day.

Simple nutritional tips to stay healthy during winter:


3. Ginger tea

Ginger is widely known for its hyperthermic effect. The polyphenols in ginger act as a natural ingredient, helping to improve blood

 circulation and keep the body warm, including the feet. Ginger helps improve peripheral circulation which promotes thermogenesis, thus reducing sensitivity to cold.

what should be done:

Prepare ginger tea by taking about two to three pieces of ginger, adding them to boiling water, filtering and drinking it.

4. Foot baths with Epsom salt bath

Magnesium has a significant role in controlling pain and enhancing the neurological properties of the central nervous system (CNS). Diabetic neuropathy can cause a malfunction of the central nervous

 system characterized by cold sensations, numbness and tingling in the feet. An Epsom salt bath may help improve blood circulation and combat the problem of cold feet.

What do I do?

Take about 2-3 teaspoons of Epsom salt and add it to a bucket of warm water. Soak the feet in water for 10 minutes. We dry and put on socks.

5. Exercising

Foot exercises such as walking on the tip of the heel then alternating the toes and rotating the feet clockwise and then counterclockwise may improve circulation and warm the feet. In one study, graded

 exercise tended to increase foot temperature by 6°C compared to potentiometric exercise. Therefore, exercising regularly is a must to keep the feet warm, especially during the winter season.

what should be done:

Perform foot exercises regularly.

6. Fat chili

The capsaicin in cayenne pepper has the ability to reduce inflammatory cytokines and promote vasodilation. For cold feet

 primarily associated with diabetes and high cholesterol, chili pepper spray can be a great way to provide warmth to the feet, relieve pain, and improve blood circulation in the body.

What to do: Sprinkle about ½ teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper into your gloves and socks.

7 heating pads for heat therapy

It is a faster way to relieve cold and pain. Warming the feet with heating pads before bed may help improve sleep quality by controlling the cold environment and, eventually, relieving cold feet.

 It is similar to footbaths. Heating pads help soothe sore muscles, improve blood circulation, and provide warmth to the feet.

what should be done:

Put a heating pad or hot water bottle on the feet. We avoid using the device on damaged skin and do not sleep with heating pads on.
