Default What to do about sweaty feet?

Hi all,



I have serious sweat problems. My feet get really sweaty (and stinky) when wearing shoes or even sandals. What can I do about it? Is there any good remedy based on natural treatments?

thanks in advance

You might want to try a visit to a classical homeopath. This is a predominant symptom of a major remedy. There really isn't anything other than homeopathy that can cure something like this that I know of.

I've read that Pascalite powder may help, might be worth a try.

First you need footwear that has better ventilation. That will help with the sweating.

Secondly, there are odour-eater type insoles that have pure silver thread. That works just like colloidal silver in that it kills bacteria and fungus, thereby helping with the smell.

Also, spraying socks with colloidal silver, then allowing them to dry before wearing, will also help alot with smell. In fact, they won't smell.

I've been using Dr Bronner's Tea Tree soap on my feet.

Some things you can do to get it under control~
*Change to white cotton only socks. If they get the least bit damp, change them even if that means carrying extra pairs with you to keep bacteria from appearing.

Apple cider vinegar soaks for 20 mins daily. 1 part vinegar/2 parts water.

Tea tannins kill bacteria & reduce sweating. I'll have to look that recipe up as I can't remember it off the top of my head. I do know you do a soak nightly for awhile & then you can reduce it to once a week when odor disappears.

No sugar. Do you eat alot of sweets? Long story short, sugar = fungi

This is a silly question, but do you wear socks with shoes? My father-in-law doesn't wear socks EVER and he has the same problem....
