Many women face this problem. Doctors have said that women have a more sensitive musculoskeletal than men. Having no idea about that, women tend to be taller by wearing high heel.

But the soles don’t bear the weight and get deformed. But bunions occur not only because of uncomfortable shoes. The causes of this disease are also: excess weight, long distances walks and flatfoot.

Today, the most effective method is surgery. But this condition can be prevented and stopped using natural remedies. In this article we will present the most effective ways to fight this disease.

1. Madder (Rubia tinctorum)

Madder root infusion should be consumed as soon as the first symptoms of bunions occur. Put a teaspoon of madder root in a glass of hot water. Boil for 10 minutes then let it cool. Strain and drink 100ml of infusion 2 times a day.

2. Dandelion and iodine

Chop 100g of dandelion flowers or buy them from the pharmacy. Pour iodine over the chopped flowers until you cover them. Soften your feet in hot water and apply this solution after. Apply the solution as a compress. This procedure should be performed daily before going to bed for two weeks.
