The term “bunion,” as it is popularly used, describes a variety of painful deformities of the base of the big toe, which sticks out. In the most common type of bunion, called hallux valgus, the big toe turns inward from its normal position and angles toward the second toe. In another type, the dorsal bunion, arthritis of the big toe causes pain and, sometimes, a bump on the top of the big toe joint.
The common bunion is frequently associated with an inward displacement deformity of the big toe that is medically referred to as a hallux abducto valgus deformity. Bunions are categorized as mild, moderate, or severe. A bunion at the base of the smallest (fifth or little) toe is referred to as a tailor’s bunion or bunionette. This is because this bunion was noticed to be associated with pressure on the little toe of old-fashioned tailors when they sat cross-legged for hours at their craft.
When you experience pain in the joint of your big toe and it has an unusual shape, especially if it bends in towards your other toes, it is likely that you have this condition. A bulging bump on the inner edge of your foot, swelling, and thickening of the skin at the base of the toe are all physical signs that indicate it as well. If you have doubts or are simply unsure, an X-ray will clearly show whether you have this abnormal joint or not.
All bunions are permanent unless surgically corrected. But there are some measures you can take to be more comfortable or to slow a bunion’s progression:
Using enameled pot pour approx of 300 ml water on a tablespoon of bay leaf and cook this for 5 minutes
Use a thermos to collect the mixture and leave it to ferment till the morning.
In the morning, strain the mixture from the bay leafs and drink the tea from it during the day (in small sips)
You should do this few days in a row (3 days). Prepare new drink each night.
Repeat it again every 7 days.
Most likely side effect from this will be, frequent urinating – this is result of the salt dissolving and being thrown out of the system.
By the end of 14 days, bunion removal should be start and you should feel pain relief
This process of bunion removal is actually naturally dissolving stones by converting them into sand. The whole process will take about 2 months until the bunion removal process is finished you will be pain free completely.
Another great tool for relief from painful bunions, joints and other phenomena of this kind is iodine with aspirin.
Mince 5 pills of aspirin or Andol (200 mg) and put them in 10 ml of iodine.
Stir until the aspirin gets dissolved in the iodine and becomes colorless.
Smear your painful areas with this solution (ankles, aching joints, and other growths) every night. After that, be sure to warm up the place overnight. You will quickly feel the positive effects.
