How would a better understanding of mula bandha alter the focus article?

I would be grateful if you would address the problem of painful bunions, such as any holistic remedies or pain relieving techniques.
Many thanks!

i like yoga, it helps me with anxiety and epression


I don't think this writer understands mula bandha


I wear toesox to help my toes spread. The grips keep me in place during the balancing series. I love them and my feet do too!

I suffered for a few years. I tried all of the above,even had the shots. Went to Cleveland Clinic and had Shock Wave Theraphy. I now can walk with out pain. I had three treatments. I was very lucky it worked for me.

Crystal Reflexology

I am a reflexologist for the past 14 years and I can stop plantar fasciitis within 4 to 6 treatments. I have had many clients come who have been told that there is no cure and that they have to live with it or have cortisone injections or surgery and Reflexology has helped them all to finally live pain free. So I recommend to everyone who is suffering from Plantar Fasciitis to seek out a good reputable Reflexologist. I have an office in Newmarket Ontario Canada 905-954-5512 if you would like an appt.


I am so happy to find Yoga Journal. I have suffered from Plantar Fasciitis for 2 years now. I have have the recomended surgery and still have no relief. I asked about therapy in the Medical world and streaching was suggested but no one addressed the root issue of the inflammation. At the club one day I noticed Yoga on the class list. I decided to give it a try. The instructor was/is wonderful she made me feel very comfortable and I was pleasently supprised how good I felt after class. I have continued practicing and I can feel a great relief in my feet and in my mind. Yoga Journal carries me through the times I can't make it to a class. My life has been enriched by this enlightnment...I can't thank you and Joy enough...

I have been struggling with plantar fasciitis for 5 years. I have had 2 orthotripsies and not only have I not been exercising for years, I am sitting most of the day so as not to exascerbate my arch/heel pain. I studied dance in my younger years and was a devotee of Jazzercise. I started walking on an incline on a treadmill every day and this is how I injured my foot. I love to exercise and this inactivity is not only driving me crazy but has reduced my quality of life. I can't walk on the beach, walk my dog, or play sports of any kind. It is causing my body to become atrophied and I worry that I'm shortening my life. I cannot ever be barefooted so I used to think that Yoga was out for me. Are there things I can do with Yoga to strengthen my feet and get rid of this plantar fasciitis once and foreall?
