Curing the itch in my foot

Before i changed my diet (see the ‘knee pain‘ episode), i used to have this chronic itch in my left heel.
Never anywhere else, never on the right foot, never elsewhere than that bloody left heel. I would sometimes have to remove my left shoe to deal with the itch and because of that i would usually carry around a slightly pointy object in case i needed to scratch it (the end of a pen’s cap can do the job).
I would get the itch at any time of day, but for sure when i went to bed i would need to scratch it frantically. Wearing thick socks was frustrating because i couldn’t scratch it as well, and without socks it would be too abrasive.
I can’t prove this scientifically but i think it is related to alcohol consumption. It came back not long ago, after i’d been drinking for 4 evenings straight, and since i’ve stopped it has disappeared again. Before my diet change i would drink beer/wine several times a week sometimes. In summer it wasn’t rare that i would drink 3 or 4 beers in a day.

I almost miss it : that’s how present it was and how absent it is. I had been living with it for years, and it felt like it was getting worse.
Oh, and guess what : it was the same leg as my knee pain, which left in 3 days when i changed my eating habits & quit alcohol.

So, yes, it’s hard to tell whether it was just the alcohol or any combination of other things, but it’s gone, and i’m not feeling too nostalgic. 😉
How many people would have gone to their doctor for this ? How many doctors do you think would have recommended the steps i took ? How many would have prescribed some garbage chemical instead of natural foods and actually searching for the real cause ?

Edit : that point in the left foot points to the intestine. It could make sense that it was itching me because the foods & liquids i was ingesting were irritating/inflaming that organ.
