Our new apartment has a nice clubhouse gym, so Mark and I resumed a work-out program. It's such a support when you can find a partner to work out with. After power-walking on the treadmill everyday for a week, one morning I got out of bed and had excruciating pain when I landed on my left foot.

I had to limp to the bathroom. Where did this come from? I never experienced this before. The pain was concentrated all in and around the heel area.

After limping around for 2 days thinking the problem would disappear as fast as it came, I sat down and did some energy work on the foot, but the pain persisted. I then asked my Angels to come in and help.

The very next commercial that came on TV was a voice asking, "Do you have sudden heel pain?" Stay tuned...I gasped and said thank you to my Angels and awaited the next message.

It was the medical tip of the day which talked about a condition called Plantar Fasciitis which is inflammation of the plantar ligament, the bowstring-like tissue stretching underneath the sole which attaches at the heel.

One of the ways it is brought on is from a sudden increase in activity. They said the sooner it is treated the more likely the chance of resolving it quickly. Otherwise there are people that suffer with this pain for years! If left untreated it can form bone spurs.

The treatments suggested are expensive and radical - surgery, shock wave therapy. I thought how unnecessary!

Well, here's what I did:

Gave both of my feet a Raindrop with Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Marjoram, Cypress, and Wintergreen. Later that evening, I took a "BEFE Bath" and ran it for two sessions (34 minutes). The next morning the pain went from a 10 to a 3!

Then that evening I did another Raindrop on my feet. The next day I was completely back to normal! I took precautions and didn't work out for the following week.

I'm happy to say I am back to my workout schedule and now I make sure I am stretching even more and not over doing it.
