FROM: TERRI JACKSON CARSON, Soul Purpose Wellness Coach
THERE ARE 23.6 MILLION children and adults in the United States who have diabetes. While an estimated 17.9 million have been diagnosed with diabetes, unfortunately, 5.7 million people are unaware that they have the disease.
It is imperative for those who have diabetes or know it is a part of family history to make it a priority to take good care of your body. The time you spend now on eye care, foot care and skin care, as well as your heart health and oral health, could delay or prevent the onset of dangerous diabetes complications later in life.
Longstanding high blood sugar can damage blood vessels, decreasing blood flow to the foot. This poor circulation can weaken the skin, contribute to the formation of ulcers, and impair wound healing. More serious complications include deep skin and bone infections. Gangrene (death and decay of tissue) is a very serious complication that may include infection; widespread gangrene may require foot amputation. Approximately 5 percent of men and women with diabetes eventually require amputation of a toe or foot. This tragic consequence can be prevented in most patients by managing blood sugar levels and daily foot care.
As the Lifestyle & Wellness Coach of this community and a licensed clinical professional I highly recommend the Soul Purpose Happy Feet Collection as a part of you and your loved ones lifestyle regimen to increase circulation and enhance the skin to manage your daily foot care.
DIRECTIONS: 2-3 times a week, in warm water (your sensation must be intact without any cuts or open wounds or sores). Soak feet in water for 10 min. Exfoliate feet. Cleanse feet. Dry feet completely. Apply certified organic foot cream for healing, swelling, and to promote circulation. Spray refresher to feet.
Dana Ware of Dallas shares that diabetes runs in her family and taking care of her feet is important. Her pedicurist uses the Happy Feet Collection on her for pedicures:
“I immediately feel my feet awaken after the foot soak, a definite increase in circulation. My feet feel like silk after the certified organic foot cream. My pedicurist was so impressed she is now a prospect and will be purchasing a collection to use on all of her clients. I love the Happy Feet collection – so refreshing. It feels good taking care of me.”
If you are a diabetic and currently seeing a medical team for foot care or are pregnant, please seek medical counsel before participation.
