Home Remedies For Cold Feet And Palms In Winter Season
With the winter season at its height, snuggling in the blanket is our thing to do. And we all know how hard it can be to get out of our cozy blanket until we’re all warm and relaxed. Yet there are other people whose feet and palm remain cold even after hours of remaining in the shelter. Would that really happen to you? If yes then listen to the following:
Why is this happening?
Despite inadequate oxygen and blood entering our palms and legs, our feet and hands begin to get colder, which happens due to poor circulation. Feeling severe cold can also often be a sign of various health conditions such as anaemia, restless leg syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, nerve damage, diabetes, hypothyroidism, or hypothermia. When you’re still feeling colder than others and despite wearing clothes, your feet and palm fail to get wet, you should visit a doctor.
But meanwhile, if it’s something that doesn’t always happen, you should check out these home remedies.
Warm oil massage
Massaging is the easiest method of therapy to restore warmth in your feet and palms. Rubbing the feet and palm enhances blood flow and therefore increases the oxygen supply.
Bath with Epsom salt
If you have Epsom salt, then you can soak your feet and palm with Epsom salt in hot water at home. The heat of the water will give warming effect to your feet, and magnesium will be supplied by the Epsom salt.
Have iron-rich foods
Iron deficiency is one of the most common causes of anaemia, which can lead to cold hands and feet. In your daily diet, eat iron-rich foods such as dates, soya, spinach, apples, dried apricots, olives, and beetroots to combat anaemia.
Preventing Cold Hands and Feet
The only way to prevent cold injuries is to wear appropriate footwear while wagering in the cold outdoors.
- Protecting the face, hands and feet particularly under windy conditions.
- The use of hand warmer packs, such as those used by skiers, can be useful for extended periods when out in colder weather.
- Stop putting on tight clothing.
- Nozzles are cooler than gloves.
- Do not wear extra pairs of socks if they fit too tightly on shoes or boots.
- Hold feet and hands dry.
- Find shelter during severe cold where possible.
- Physical exercise with adequate intake of food can help keep your hands and feet dry.
- Do not smoke, because ‘cig’ reduces hands and foot circulation.
When to see a doctor
It is common to have occasional cold feet, but there are other incidences that it might be important to visit the doctor. Meet your doctor with the following signs, if you have cold feet and palms.
- Loosing weight or adding weight
- Joint hurt
- Sores on your palms and feet which take longer to heal than normal
- Skin marks
If the touching of your feet isn’t cold but you feel the cold internally, please contact your doctor as this could be due to nerve damage.
