I've had this circular purple colored spot on the bottom of my foot for about two years. Its under the skin so I cant feel it and it looks like a broken blood vessel, but its circular and I've never had anything like this. Just recently it seems to have gotten larger and there is another tiny one in a different spot that has recently appeared.
Any ideas on what this is? Should I be worried? Should I seek a doctor to biopsy it? Im a little scared that it could be cancer.
actually, yes. Sorry, these feet are 'backwards'. You can see the heart is only on 'one foot' as is the liver-- but, in reflexology, you must work on both feet, one at a time, in order that the whole body stays balanced.(otherwise, things tend to move for one side to another.) What you can do is work on massaging the feet first, just gently rolling them between your hands. Rolling each toe, sort of piching the tips, and so on...You can use a bit of oil too. Then, if you have a pencil with an eraser on the end, this is about the right size and density to sort of ( gently but firmly) 'dig' into any tender spots you find. When you find one, press gently but firmly for several seconds, and then softly massage. Remember to breathe and 'let go' of any tension. Most people find that the liver area has some tenderness intitially. Go easy, don't do too much at once, for you don't want to stir things up too fast.
There are lots of books on this..and it might be worth looking for one from the library. Can you see what the spot relates to, in terms of these diagrams?
Ah yes. I see you said shoulder and eye areas. Eyes are related also to liver.
And the liver/gallbladder system may be related too, to the shoulder in your case.
Don't neglect the neack and the whole spine.
If you visualize the two feet images side by side, the spine runs down the middle.
(so, the heart on the left, liver on the right..) To view it in this way, you can see why it's important to treat both feet the same.
Anyway, why not give yourself a nice fairly gentle treatment. You can do it daily, if you don't get too roug) It's important though, not to work on just one area, as all areas are related. So, do the one foot. Then, the other.
I really appriciate the details, thank you. So now I am confused which foot is considered left and which is the right? Funny thing is my feet have been getting weird on me within the past two months. If I sit with my feet in a certain way for a while and then get up I can hardly walk on them for a few seconds because they feel tender, almost in pain but mostly weak. And if I get up in the middle of the night to go the bathroom again my feet are very weak and mild pain for the first few steps. Also I cant wear any shoes with a heal anymore because my feet get tired very fast. I hardly ever wear heals, maybe about five times a year, but the last time I tried "whoa!". So no more heals, and I have even had to switch from wearing regular flats to just my athletic shoes. Not too pretty for church. These are just examples of what's been going on within the past two months with my feet. It started shortly after I started taking a lot of brewers yeast-not even sure there is a possible connection- but when I stopped the brewers yeast they did get better, my legs were starting to get odd cramping but that went away when I quit the yeast. Could be that the yeast was too high in phosporus? I dont know. Just putting some info out there in case someone might see something that might help me.
Could be many things, from ringwormto who knows what. To sample it is my last choice. I suggest it is a sign that you have an internal circulation problem based on REFLEX work of the foot will tell exactly where and the cure will always be strong deep massage until gone, work it for 10 minutes a day until it dissapears.
The Miracle Gel from Global Light Network works very well for sunburn--very
soothing. Eating coconut oil is supposed to help protect against sunburn, so
you would do that as a preventative for any future sunburning. I'm eating about
2-3 Tbsp per day (since August) but since I rarely ever go out in the sun
any more (who has the time, and besides we were about 3 months without much
sun here from Feb. to May in N. CA!) it hasn't been an issue for me yet this
year. You can also rub the coconut oil on your skin (this is virgin coconut oil)
but I would think you might get your clothes pretty greasy if you did that.
"IF" you have some one massage with the thumb in a circular motion for 10 minutes once a week or maybe 3X a week, the books would suggest in 3-5 massages. Depending on the exact location you could look at a REFLEX chart and see that this would indicate a congested area in your body and once the purple was gone, so would be the health problem associtaed with it.
I would also de-worm and all the other standard things if possible or at least use a few drops of oegano daily or rub the oregano on directly just in case it had anything to do with a ringworm.
