Burning Feet

Q & A with The Good Witch


I am wondering do you have any advice on what to do for burning feet? The bottom of my feet burn at night?


Burning feet can be a symptom of deficiency of Vitamin B5, also known as Pantothenic Acid.

To test this deficiency, purchase a bottle of best quality Pantothenic Acid, as well as Vitamin B Complex. Vitamin B’s are always better when taken in a complex form, so you don’t want to take Pantothenic Acid by itself. Take both vitamins together, daily for 2 weeks and see if burning symptoms disappear.

Pantothenic acid is also important in fighting stress, so if you find yourself ‘stressed out’ and not able to cope, this also may be a clue to your burning feet problem.

If taking Vitamin B supplements help, and the symptom disappears after two weeks, gradually add Vitamin B rich foods to your diet and remove an excess of foods which your body uses Vitamin B5 for, such as the manufacture of cholesterol in your liver. These include foods high in saturated fats such as all dairy products and fatty meats.

Add foods rich in all Vitamin B’s such as all whole grains, brown rice, brewer’s yeast, whole wheat, wheat bran, oatmeal, peanuts, raw nuts and seeds, leafy green vegetables, eggs cooked with a runny yolk, cantaloupe, miso, tempeh, sprouted grains, naturally fermented soy sauce, legumes, fresh sprouts, various fruits, and fresh cold water fish. Adding these foods and reducing intake of dairy products and meats, will affect your health in a positive way in general, and may help to reduce other unexplained symptoms.
