Good nutrition is necessary for healthy feet and a healthy life. Nutrition starts with eating the right things and making sure we take the right vitamins. It is also important to go for regular, yearly physicals and blood tests to make sure you are not lacking any nutrients you need!

How does nutrition affect my feet?

Iron deficiency can cause generalized fatigue and weakness. In addition to this, it can directly affect our feet. If you have an open wound, it can make it more difficult for the wound to heal. Iron can be found in lean proteins, such as chicken, pork and fish. If you are a vegetarian, don’t shy away from the leafy greens and beans.

Vitamin B and folate deficiency can cause neuropathy in our feet. Signs of neuropathy include tingling, numbness, and burning. Other diseases that can cause these symptoms are Diabetes and auto-immune diseases such as Rheumatoid arthritis and Lupus. Vitamin B complexes can be used for such deficiencies. Folate can be found in fruits and vegetables, as well as whole grains. Vitamin B can be found in poultry, fish, dairy and eggs.


Magnesium, calcium, and potassium depletion can cause muscle cramps. Athletes, especially need to be careful of this, since it can happen because of dehydration. For muscle cramps at night, patients do very well taking Magnesium supplements.

Alpha-lipoic acid is a good over-the-counter treatment for Diabetic nerve pain. It helps to stimulate Insulin to metabolize blood sugar. If you are Diabetic and your blood sugar is elevated, you may notice increased sensations such as tingling, numbness, and burning.

If you are experiencing burning, tingling, numbness, or cramping in your feet, call Hollowbrook Foot Specialists today for an appointment at (845) 298-9074! We are serving the Hudson Valley from Wappingers Falls.
