Our expert says:
LN has replied partly to your question - which is correct about the reflexes on your heels - again one cannot generalise - your diet, age, and lifestyle play a very important role.
The colour of the feet is also important.
Pain can sometime be because of circualtion problems - and to generalise - it also depends where the cracked heels are - normally we would relate the cracks on the outside of the heel to hormone imbalances and the inside of the heels a blood sugar, acid/alkaline, imbalance.
I would recomemd that you see a reflexologist so that they can take a case history and help you - you can go to www.vacuflex.com
And click on therapists, and then your area - all the reflexologist on the website are registered with Allied Health Council.
I hope this helps.
If you would like to give me some more details and I can try and help as much as I can via email.
