If anyone desevres the blame for mentally ill people not getting any treatment, it's our beloved politicians, from ALL political Parties,who closed down the mental health facilities, dumped all the patients on the street,and cut spending on MH to a tiny percentage of what was needed.Why? Because the mentally ill have no political power,unlike ethnic minorities,or gays. The mentally ill have no spokesmen, no advocates,and are kept in the figurative attic,powerless.It takes an act of violence or extreme acting out before anyone is even considered for one of the very few beds in a psych ward,and when they are admitted, are drugged almost comatose,seen by a psychiatrist if they're lucky,and dumped back on the street ASAP.So, once in a while, the statistics catch up with society,and one person who should be in an institution goes apeshit,and we get this.Then the politicians and the usual suspects try to place blame on everyone BUT the people responsible,the politicians who voted to cut MH care costs.

i dont know about the SUPERFEET soles he talks about at around the 5:40 mark I meessd up my feet while using super feet, but maybe it was´╗┐ the wrong shoes. I think I have flat feet and I been running this whole 2008 year with the new Asics Gel running shoes. I totally meessd my feet up. I have abandoned taht shoe and now have the new New Balance shoe. I bought with it, just a simple heel sole for cusion.

Actually high heels are better as they force the wegiht to the ball of the foot. You may wish to tie you rfeet at night. Tie the toes/ballof foot to ypur calve or ankle so that the bottom of the foot is stretched backwards. Rolling pin on the bottom before you go to bed or are watching TV. Exercise the plantar fascia ligament whenever you are standing. Putting on makeup, on the phone, waiting in line. Up and down on your toes. Comfortable shoes are a must. Heel cushions too.

Hi Bernadette,Thanks for the comments. I sgsegut reading the article I wrote on plantar fasciitis (below) and following the exercises as a starting point. Hiring a really good fascial therapist who has a successful history treating PF would be a good idea too. I have had great success in treating PF. In most cases, moving out of the acute pain stage within 3-4 sessions. Once you are out of the pain stage, it is time to focus on flexibility and corrective exercises to strengthen the arches, knees and hips. You will find a few in this article.Now, my guess is that you have been wearing shoes with a significant heel lift for many years. (I consider the heel lift of most running shoes to be significant). The heel lift in shoes places your achilles tendon in a shortened position. It does not get stretched out fully when you walk. This is compounded by heel strike. Over time the achilles and lower leg muscles in your calf become somewhat permanently shortened. This is the primary issue that causes PF and just about every other foot pain issue. The shortened state places strain through the plantar fascia and other structures which eventually become inflamed (for lack of a better term). This is also the reason going barefoot is so painful. When you are barefoot, you are forcing the full natural range of motion of your now shortened ankle which places excess stress on the achilles tendon. Plus the muscles of the lower leg and arches are not strengthened to handle this new ROM. So they get fatigued quickly. The key will be to work through the active pain of PF. Then begin a rehab process that focuses on increasing flexibility and strengthening the ankle and calves. When it comes to walking around barefoot: I would keep the amount of time down. Spend 5-10 minutes a day at first and over the course of weeks slowly add more time. It MUST be PAIN FREE. Start buying shoes with less of a heel wedge. Don't make a drastic move from the higher heels you are currently wearing to a zero drop over night. But eventually you will want a zero drop shoe, if your foot can handle it. This is a process that will take at least a year and possibly two years to fully adapt into. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any more questions. Also, something you didn't mention in the above post. Do you wear orthotics?Jesse James Retherford

Most shoppers LOVE their boxed and froezn fare. I am a bit of an anomaly. There is no soda or Velveeta in my cart! I purposely shop the perimeter of the store for meats, dairy and produce with a few conveniences (bread, cereal) thrown in. This forces me to cook from scratch and menu plan whether I feel like it or not. You can even find coupons for healthier options.
