What are Cold Feet?
I think all of us have experienced cold feet at some point. You know... that cold, damp clammy feeling that can happen even when you are indoors.
Basically, you are experiencing a lack of circulation to the toes and feet which can be caused by a variety of conditions. The capillaries that transmit fresh oxygenated blood to your feet are shut down or constricted.
Common conditions associated with cold feet:
- Raynaud's Syndrome have cold feet, but you can have cold feet & toes anytime.
- Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is a narrowing or blockage of the arteries.
- Peripheral Neuropathy is a nerve disorder that can cause your feet to feel cold.
- Chilblains is a condition resulting from exposure to extreme cold damp environments. Toes are itchy, painful, reddish or purplish, and even swollen.
- Frostbite in extremely cold environments, like back country skiing, snowmobiling or snowboarding.
- Trench foot develops after prolonged exposure to a wet, cold environment and is more serious than chilblains. Toes and feet may appear pale, red, blotchy, or purple to blue. Feet are usually swollen and painful.
Treating Cold Feet:
All of the cold feet conditions above can benefit from Far Infrared Socks.
Even if you just wear the socks at night, you will notice your feet will start to feel warmer during the day, too.
The goal is to improve the circulation and natural FIR energy will help to do that.
Even if your doctor prescribes medications, you can still use Prolotex™ non-invasive Far Infrared Socks to promote circulation to your toes and improve the overall warmth of your feet.
What can Far Infrared Socks do to help?
The threads in Prolotex™ Socks are impregnated with a safe formula of bio-ceramics that emit beneficial far infrared rays (FIR).
These rays can penetrate deep into the tissues of your body and basically increase (stimulate) the molecular activity of the cells.
The stimulation of the tiny capillaries and veins in your feet dilate the cells and allow fresh oxygenated blood containing vital nutrients to reach afflicted areas.
Circulation is increased, swelling is reduced, accumulated toxins are released, and the restoration process is promoted.
