For a heel spur, take Alfalfa Tea several times a day for first 4 wks, then only 3-4 times a wk will be sufficient. Was recommended to me by a co-worker. Works great:)
Have you all tried to drink organic apple cider vinegar for a heel spur? taking it internally works better than putting it on your skin. I had a spur on my foot the vinegar dissolved it. i was taking the vinegar to clean out my body. i was taking 1/4 cup in a glass of water 2 times a day. I did it for 1 month. It works.
For my heel spur, I SOAK my feet in a bucket full of Acv. Anything else for me is a waste of time. Gone!!

Yesterday I spent a few hours on my feet and at night my heel spurs were on fire. Pushing down even lightly on it felt like a nasty bruise.
I found the apple cider vinegar wrap remedy last night and immediately tried it. I used two small hand towels and Saran wrap. I placed the dry towel on my heel and started wrapping from my ankle down. Once the towel was tightly wrapped I poured the ACV down there and soaked the towel. I then finished wrapping to about the arch of my foot. This left my toes comfortably uncovered.
I slept about 7 hours and then took them off. My heels were like grapes. I thought that maybe I over did it. I pushed on the heel and felt no pain.
Today I was on my feet for hours and my feet feel great compared to yesterday. I don't have the bruising feeling. I just wrapped them again. I don't think I'll need to continue this very long. I'll update
Apple cider vinegar wrap worked for mey heel spur I was in agony for months I had 3 cortozone injections in a week, that's how bad I was. I used a paper towel and made it damp but not soakin put it on my heel for most of the day. When it dried out I repeated the procedure. I did this for 6 weeks taking it of at night and I have been pain free for a year and a half. It sounded really daft but I think its fantastic. My skin peeled where I put to much but it wasn't painful. My brother soaked his feet in a bucket of water with apple cider vinegar added and he got relief too.
My family laughed at me when I told them I was going to try an apple cider vinegar wrap for my heel spur. The first morning, it did feel better, but didn't last for long only a few hours. The next day it felt better. The third day it felt heaps better. Not sure if I felt something perhaps break in the heal like the spur broke off. Anyway we are at the Bathurst racetrack now for the big race and I have been walking around a lot and it is good, so much better than before I tried it only a very small amount of pain now. Will do a few more treatments when we go back home.
I am trying the various remedies for heel spurs. I started the apple cider vinegar wrap 4 days ago. I wrapped it with a gauze bandage soaked in ACV with a plastic bag tied around my foot and left on overnight for the 4 nights. I didn't notice much difference in the pain, but thought maybe I needed to continue this procedure longer. Well today I noticed a big chunk of skin where I have been soaking coming off my heal. This will be quite painful if this skin comes off. So I am stopping the soaking and want to warn others not to soak too much with the ACV. I am going to continue with drinking ACV, Coconut Oil, & taking Calcium and hope these cures work for me.
I am a foot reflexologist and I have been having pain in my heel from what I believe is a heel spur. I had been working on my feet and enduring the pain as I did not want to have cortizone injections. I started wrapping my heel with an ace bandage soaked in ACV. I also starting taking it orally 2 T daily as I have read many other benefits of ACV. Also, a huge plus, the wrap on my heel took away all the built up callus. I am going to wrap my other foot as well!
I don't know if I have a heel spur or planter fasia, but I read some of your remedies and I just tried organic apple cider vinegar by rubbing and massaging it on my heel and the side of my foot. It is so much better and I didn't have any problem walking when I first got out of bed this morning. I am in no pain and it feels great.
I used the ACV wrap at night w a bag around my foot for 7 days and saw no relief at all. And it stunk up my house and my bedding. Not worth it!
I have had a heel spur for about 4 years. Buying high quality shoes - a well known jogger brand but the black office type helped immensely but didn't get rid of the problem. The other day I went for a 9 KM run and the ankle flared up. I tried the wrap and it is working. Two days later there is almost no sign of it. I highly recommend the ACV wrap.
I had had heel spurs for almost a year now. I had try everything (cortisone shot, pills, creams, physical therapy, acupunture, thai massage, foot massage,etc) I had been using the apple cider for more than a week at night. However, I still have the pain. I think it is better. Do you think I should be using the apple cider for longer time?? Please, any recomendation will be apreciated.
Hi this cure is true, the doctor was going to do surgery, But I said NO I wanted to try something first and I did. I tried the apple cider vinger wrap first for about six every night at bedtime I put on the wrap and my heel spur is cured. Thanks alot and God Bless. Donna
Apple Cider Vinegar cures heel spurs.
Instructions: Soak apple cider vinegar with a cloth and applied on your heel for 6-8 hrs. You can wrap it with a plastic bag around your heel while you sleep. You might need to repeat the process for several days.
Depending on how bad the heel spur, the process will take longer. If the pain is not relieved after doing this process for long period of time, then you might have a different problem and advised to see your doctor.
The ACV, molasses, and baking soda really helps heel spurs after ONLY one day! I can really tell the difference.
