Home Remedies That Help With Swollen Feet And Ankles

Have you ever looked down at your ankles and feet, hardly recognizing them as your own because they are so swollen? Whether from long days on your feet, travel or surgery, it happens. Trust me, if you live in Lagos(Nigeria) you are most likely to have your Feet's swollen from long traffic hours.

Below are few remedies, you can practice to help with the swells.

1. Compression socks

 Available at your local drug store, shoe store or online, compression socks provide pain relief and prevent fluid collection in your legs, ankles and feet. They come in light, medium and heavy weights, so be sure you select a pair that isn’t too tight for your body. 

2.Epsom salt.

 Soak your feet and ankles for 15 to 20 minutes in a cool bath filled with Epsom salts to relieve swelling-associated pain. If you have diabetic neuropathy in your feet, check the water with your hands first to avoid exposing your feet to extreme temperatures.

3. Drinking Water

Drink eight to 10 glasses of water daily.Drinking less actually promotes swelling.

4. Exercise. 

Sitting or standing in one place for too long can increase swelling. Move your knees, and flex and extend your ankles for relief. Consider swimming, as well, because it’s a non-weight-bearing exercise that can also soothe the skin.

Five Benefits Of Walking Bare Foot

Walking barefoot is a practice that many are beginning to resonate with, citing its medical benefits. However, is it just a millennial hoax, in the name of making us ditch the many pairs of shoes we buy and wear per year? Here are the benefits and what you should know about walking barefoot, turning it into a lifestyle.

1. Enhances blood flow

Stepping onto a surface barefoot ensures that your nerves are very active. Your foot gets to comfortably exercise and be in a good state. Your blood flow is enhanced because you realize that with every step, blood flow enhances.

2.Improves your balance

Have you seen women especially struggle with walking well because they are wearing high heels? Some types of shoes offer imbalance and get you constantly falling down. You'll realize that, walking barefoot will give you the benefit of not falling. No wonder it is recommended that children stay without shoes for longer so that they learn how to walk better without constant falling.

3.Builds stronger leg muscles

Walking barefoot is a form of exercise in itself. You'll realize that you're more likely to feel that your muscles are strong over time by exercising barefoot. This therapy is similar to acupuncture, and meant to get your body in tune with its nerves. When you're going through physiotherapy, the legs are insisted upon, and walking barefoot results in better muscles.

4. Helps To Prevent Foot Deformity

Relief from improperly fitting shoes, which may cause bunions, hammertoes, or other foot deformity.

5. Helps To Improve Sleep

Another study in PubMed revealed that earthing influences physiologic processes and induces relaxation. The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine also reported that people who had been exposed to grounding had a better night’s sleep compared with those who did not walk barefoot regularly. Earthing is believed to stabilize circadian rhythms. Perhaps that explains why many people experience a better night’s sleep.

Adekunle Gold is the cover star of Quazar Magazine, a platform which is famous for centering queer creativity and celebrating the LGBTQ Community.

Celebrating the feat, Adekunle Gold directed fans to the exclusive editorial about his feature in the LGBTQ magazine.

This was after his wife, Simi, had apologized to the LGBTQ community for her previous homophobic comments. She tweeted;


At first Nigerians accepted her apology, until Adekunle Gold’s queer cover photo surfaced and many people realised then why she actually apologised.

Simi currently is being dragged for what seems to be a "fake apology" because her husband featured as the cover of a queer based magazine. AG defended his wife by releasing a note on twitter;

He then went on to address the claims that his wife's apology over her homophobic comments was for selfish reasons.

"The timing of my wife's apology was a pure and simple coincidence. She had no idea about this or any interview whatsoever...I hope you consider her apology and give her a chance to grow," he said.
