This was ongoing for years, lots of injections of cortisone would help for awhile and then it came back. I used to run 24 miles per week and just decided to wear high heels to minimize pain. Finally...Here are the top 3 things that worked in conjunction to heal me.

  1. Doterra lemongrass and geranium oil 20 drops of each in a roller bottle topped off with fractionated coconut oil. Look on Pinterest for the words Doterra and plantar faciitis.

  2. I found Align orthotics to work best in my shoes but I had to get fitted for shoes with them. I was actually wearing my shoes too small.

  3. Massaging my calf improved it as well. Sometimes I would have a family member roll a rolling pin on my calf. Do a runners stretch. These were keys to releasing it! You can put the oils on your calf too! It releives pain!
