Good post Sabrina. I'll second the use of turmeric. We use the extract
instead of ibuprofen, which can damage the GI tract, causing leaky gut
syndrome among other issues. It's a cox-2 inhibitor, just like ibuprofen.
As has been discussed here at length, eliminating arch supports is what
ultimately allowed my PF to go away.
I used to suffer from plantar fasciitis as well. Once I started eating an
anti-inflammatory diet (in my case, The Whole 30) and taking a few
supplements, it went away. I know this is not the case for everyone, but it
did work for me. The supplements I take daily for inflammation are turmeric
and milk thistle. Seems effective for everyday life. I work out almost
daily, so I am putting some stress on the system and it is still holding
up. I'm sure hiking 2600 miles will stir things up a bit more ;-) Cheers
