Hi my name is Dr. Kim Makoi. I am a holistic
chiropractor from San Francisco, California and this is how you treat bunions with alternative
medicine. Contrary to popular belief bunions are not actually growth on the foot although
they look like them. They are actually bumps usually seen along the side of the large toe
at the joint where the toe meets the foot here or on the pinky side of the foot. They
can become quite prominent and quite painful. What it actually is is it is almost always
due to wearing bad shoes, very tight shoes, more often in women. Those cute pointy toed
shoes are very bad for your feet and what it is is over time the joints instead of being
lined up in a more or less straight manner start to bend so when the toe bends inward
the joint, this is the joint, it becomes more prominent, it causes a bump which causes a
bunion. So the main solution for bunions is to wear shoes that give the toes lots of room
for movement. Once you have a prominent bunion it is very very hard to correct so as with
everything prevention is the best medicine, stick to shoes with plenty of room in the
toes, avoid high heeled shoes and also make sure you are getting enough calcium because
sometimes a calcium deficiency can cause increased growth along stressed areas of the bones,
counterintuitively and that is how you treat bunions with alternative medicine.

  1. Thank you for your interesting clip, but I must correct you on a couple of points. Bunions are not caused by wearing tight shoes. They may be exacerbated by ill fitting footwear, but that is not what causes bunions. They are hereditary. I've had bunions since kindergarten, and I inherited this from my mother, and she from her mother. They run in the family and my doctor said they are associated with arthritis which also runs in the family. Many thanks.

  2. What part of "wear comfortable fitting shoes" is "alt medicine?" That's simply common sense! Tell me something we don't already know…

  3. COULD YOU HAVE SOMETHING THAT PULLS THEM APART AND WEAR IT FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME? I HAVE ONE AND I HATE IT I JUST DONT WANT TO HAVE THE SURGERY!
