The pain in my ankle was really persistent. I woke up early morning when I felt the pain in my right and left ankle. My two ankle seemed to be okay when not moving but it felt a severe pain when I started walking.
The weather was so cold back then so everyone who saw how I walked was saying that it was a rheumatism. I cannot accept that it was such because swelling never occurred. Maybe I was mistaken and It was really a rheumatism.
After two days of hard walking and unable to drive a car, my mother-in-law suggested to bandage it with slices of ginger with oil. The trick worked by easing the pain but pain was not completely eliminated. I want a long term cure. I don’t want this culprit pain to happen ever again.
My auntie suggested to me the herb called gotu-kola. She added that eating the herb everyday cured her ankle pain. I also tried her recommendation.
After several days of eating gotu-kola, I can walk easily with only slight pain. I hope the development will continue until its gone forever.
By the way I am eating the herb like salad, with mayonnaise. Other ingredients mask its astringent taste.

My feet pain is attacking again! Why? Maybe because I stopped eating the herb few months ago. However, the pain is not as severe as before. It seems I need to eat more…
