Running may be good for some parts of your cardiovascular system, but it can be especially hard on your hips, knees and feet.
The surface of joints are soft tissue and the muscles and tendons of your feet are guided and bundled with collagen-based soft tissue called fasciia. Running on pavement is especially pounding on the fasciia of your feet and can cause plenty of damage. Young runners have healthy livers and more open micro-capillary beds running through all of the tissues of the body. Damage can be easily repaired. The young body can produce plenty of elastic collagen. As we age and our vasculature becomes more restrictive, our livers become more toxic and our diets become poorer, maintaining soft tissues becomes more problematic.
Plantar Fasciitis can develop in runners of any age, but it is predominantly seen in those that are over 40 and overweight. Most folks don’t really know what to do when the pain starts. They can’t stop running. They are already eating as well as they can. … So they just rub their feet and hope that it will get better. It doesn’t.
Repairing soft tissue can be support and enhanced often with dramatic improvements and long-lasting results. First thing you need is to make sure that your body can get all of the building blocks needed to maintain and repair this tissue. The things that are mostly forgotten or over-looked are vitamin C and copper. These two building blocks of elastic tissue are critical and often not found in the food that we eat. The amount of Vit. C in the food we eat is far lower than most people realize. Most foods are picked before they are ripe and then rush-ripened with ETO chambers at the point where they are sold. This reduces bruising in shipment. Unfortunately, it also reduces the Vit. C content to almost nothing. Our bodies cannot produce Vitamin C. If you want to make sure that you have enough, you should consume an additional 2000 to 3000 mg/day. This is especially true during time of healing such as after surgery or when soft tissue repair is necessary.
Next, increasing the activity rate of the fibroblasts is an essential part of soft tissue repair. Their are various reasons why this is necessary that we have covered in other blog posts and entries. You see, the fibroblasts are little collagen factories that assemble the building blocks that your body will use to repair fasciia, ligaments, bones and other soft tissues.
By massaging BST repair (Bruise Strain & Tear Repair) into the soles of your feet several time a day, you can dramatically improve the healing and repair of plantar fasciitis. If you add to this the ingestion of Vitamin C and copper, wonderful recoveries from plantar fasciitis and other foot injuries are just steps away.
It is important to remember that once you begin this healing protocol, your feet will begin to feel much better in just a couple of days. Don’t stop. It can take weeks or even a couple of months to FULLY repair the damage that has accumulated over years. If you want to be assured of a complete repair, use a whole bottle or two of the Bruise Strain & Tear Repair. The area will be strengthened much more fully and your relief will last for many more years.
