Need a cure or know someone who does for foot odor? Let me begin by saying this is a touchy subject that has plagued many people to the point of shame. The inability to remove shoes in front of people because of foot odor is embarrassing. We are not here to make fun of anyone just trying to share good information.
On top of that, the cure for this is kind of unusual. This is not a fetish thing and in no way will I answer questions that pertain to anything but the therapeutic value of the information contained within. If you are interested, please continue reading and see for yourself how easy it is to cure foot odor!
Step 1: Causes of Foot Odor
I've read about black tea, mouthwash, Epsom salt, vinegar, baking soda, antiperspirant, anti-fungal cream, rotate shoes, powder, zinc oxide, bleach, tea tree oil, activated charcoal, cedar insoles, borax or boric acid, isopropyl alcohol, hydrogen peroxide, even allspice! That's exhausting! Who has time for all that?
But I have one, easy way, with something you have on hand and readily available for you to use to end smelly feet!

Step 2: Testimonials
My wife lovingly teased me about it but it caused us both discomfort. I wore only clean socks and bleached and hung my socks on the line to dry in the sanitizing sun. I bought 2 pairs of the same shoes so I could rotate wearing them. Still stunk. Foot soaks in tea tree oil. I used foot sprays, creams and powders. My feet still stunk. My wife came across an article about an unusual way to stop foot odor. It made sense to her. She has always done this-as long as she could remember and never had stinky feet.
Lo & behold it took me about 16 years to figure it out for reals and try it. It just seemed so extreme to me and I wasn't comfortable with it. I didn't say anything that I was trying it. Then after about a week my wife said, your feet don't stink, do they? I said, you're right! She asked if I had been doing what she recommended so many years ago. I said yes! It really worked. My feet no longer smell. Unless I get careless and stop-then the odor returns slowly. And she reminds me what to do."

Step 4: How Do I Do It?
Step 5: How Does It Work?
All I know is that it works. Whether it's balancing the pH or killing fungus or bacteria, the main thing to know is that it does work. And it works for as long as you continue to do so. It's harmless (helpful), available, and simple to do.
Step 6: Other Considerations
- Other self care you might want to consider along with your new shower habit is zinc supplementation. If you've had stinky feet for a long time this could be a sign of zinc deficiency. Zinc deficiency is also linked to chronic sinus infections and loss of sense of taste and smell. Take as directed on bottle label.
- Another one of my favorites is coconut oil! Use this liberally on your feet and body. It has natural sunscreen properties, is full of the good omegas and makes skin glow. It balances the oils so the body isn't over producing oil to protect the skin after being stripped by harsh soaps.
- If your body is over-acidic, you may suffer with acid reflux. This uncomfortable disease can be linked to body chemistry. Alkalize the body with Tri-Salts- Calcium, Magnesium and Phosphorus. You can find it in the heath food supplements section.
- If not only your feet stink but your breath is bad too, try drinking herbal tea with milk. You can also take parsley capsules or include finely minced parsley or parsley juice to your diet. It has powerful deodorizing properties and is full of trace vitamins and minerals.
