Calcium and Magnesium and Zinc as treatment?

Posted by Diane P. on 11/29/00 at 20:07 (033829)

Hi , I'm new to this. My sister is suffering terribly from plantar's fascitis, she's not on-line but an acquantance told her that they got relief from taking Calcium, Magnesium and Zinc but they didn't know the dosages and they also thought there were other supplements involved. They originally found this info on-line but they have failed to let us know where and I've had no luck. If you know anything please let me know. I'll keep checking this site. Thanks Diane

Calcium, magnesium and zinc might help and wouldn't hurt, but it certainly shouldn't be the only step your sister takes to improve her condition. What else is she doing? Has she been to a podiatrist or sports medicine doctor for a biomechanical evaluation and diagnosis? On this site you'll find the PF book. Print it out and give it to her to read. It will give her a great deal of useful advice that has helped a great many people. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial.
