I suffered from cold feet and since using The Pauling Protocol it has improved dramatically. It was so bad at one stage during winter, that I used to speed home after work just to get my feet in a tub of hot water to get it going again. I used layering and red pepper in my socks just to get me through the winter. This winter was one of the coldest we had and I just sailed through with happy feet.

I use 3000mg of Vit C, 500mg L-Proline and 500mg L-Lysine 3 to 4 times per day. It took about 3 months to get results. Nowadays because it is so much better iI tend to forget to use it regularly.

I get this pricking feeling at the sole - not often - but get it once in 3-4 days

The best advice I have been given is layers. I always have 4 to 8 socks on my right foot.
Any other ideas?

One good thing, I can stop my hubby's snoring, just by touching him with my right foot!

Have you tried a microwaveable corn bag yet?

Years ago my sister made Christmas presents of corn bags. She made a canvas bag, Poured in some whole corn feed and closed the pouch.

Throw it in the microwave for a couple of minutes (CAUTION HOT)
makes a great general heating pad. Heat one up and put it under the sheets at the foot of the bed.

What also make the corn bag useful is that it will contour to your sore aching body part be it muscle, knee, ankle, or elbow perfectly.

Take your time... Don't live to fast....Troubles will come and they will pass
