Customer Question

I have developed spurs on top of my feet and it hurts to walk I have heard to drink cherry tart for 72 hrs of fasting because the acid in the tart will eat away at the calcium buildup what do you think ? I don't want to have surgery and I have to be on my feet 8 hrs a day also trying to lose weight, so frustrating

This is Dr. David
drinking cherry tart most likely will not fix your problem.
you should continue to cut calories and exercise to loose weight
but you have to see a doctor and get your feet examined and to get a foot xray
no one will do surgery if you don't want.
your spurs might be helped with special orthodic shoes.
have you had a foot xray yet?
