It's an easy dude. No supplements or crazy surgeries necessary. Go to a box store, Wal-Mart, CVS, and get insoles. Or, stand a foot away from a kitchen counter, push one leg back as far as you can, tilt your torso at a 45 degree angle and sort-of bounce your chest up and down a few times, like a mini pushup ten times, repeat with the opposite leg.
Wore insoles for a couple of years, have never had a problem since. Only did the exercises until the pain went away.
1) Grow my dick
2) Get down to 170lbs/Get an earth shattering ass
3) Finish writing book(s)
4) Organize my life
5) Make better money
take a (reasonable) dose of NSAIDs for a couple weeks to reduce swelling, elevate and ice the bottom of your foot (or wherever the pain is) 3 times a day for 20 minutes each. Keep icing it every day for a week or however long it takes to get the pain to go away.
More importantly, go see a podiatrist and ask them about insoles like str8chaser2002 says. This is a problem often caused by flat feet and poor foot support. Humans were never really meant to walk around in shoes, so a TON of people get plantar fasciitis. I've had it myself a few times. I've always been able to get it to go away within a week with ice and NSAIDs.
It's seriously not a big deal at all. It's a super common and very easily treated condition. Your foots not broken, don't worry. You're not going to end up hobbled for the rest of your life. Even if you do nothing, it may go away on its own.
ice your foot > take NSAIDS > see a podiatrist > get insoles (preferably ones recommended by your podiatrist)
There are SO many things you need to do first before considering stem cells. It's not like you severed a tendon in your knee, you're gonna be okay.

The reason I created this post is because I've had tendon issues in my feet for about 2 and a half years now.
I get tendon inflammation in EVERY in my feet including the ones connected to my ankles.
The plantar fasciitis is actually just the most recent development.
This shit started when like an idiot I took standing to the extreme during the whole standdesk craze. I decided to stand all day long except when sleeping. 3 weeks later My feet and ankles swelled up so I cut that shit out but my feet haven't been the same since.
I have to spend a lot of time on my feet because I don't own a vehicle and I don't have enough money to constantly take Ubers to the gym.
I also suffer from mild insomnia, so my body doesn't recuperate as quickly or efficiently as it did when I was younger.
To top it off, yesterday I quit the first job I've had in over 8 years of unemployment because my feet were killing me after hour 4 and it was a job that demanded standing and walking the entire shift and I knew I couldn't hack it.
I'm sorry for long post. I will look into the NSAIDS. The podiatrist will have to wait because I don't have medical insurance and no money. And the reason I asked about STEM cells was out of curiosity and to see if its something I should save up for whenever I get my next job.
Firstly, a lot of the discomfort in my feet was coming from walking around barefoot on my hardwood floor.
Turns out that it's not so much that we're not supposed to wear shoes. It's that we're not supposed to walk around for long periods on hard surfaces. Think about it, there are no hardwood floors or concrete pavements in nature. Ground in nature has give: grass, dirt, detritus, sand, etc. Give helps support the arch and places less stress on the fat pads that cushion your feet, which i unfortunately have worn down.
Wear comfortable footwear with arch support.
Avoid hard surfaces if you can, as much as you can.
Don't walk around barefoot on hard surfaces, it will wear down the fat pads on the bottom of your feet. (I hope mine replenish somehow. Though I am trying to shed fat so I don't know how that will affect it.)
I'm also taking Flexacil, a joint supplement marketed for elderly with arthritis. It helps a little...
Sit down and roll from heel to toe, pausing where the pressure is strongest. You can use the same ball basically all over your body. I had/have elbow tendonitis and rolling behind my left shoulder really helps.
A podiatrist, as BIB rec'd, can also recommend what shoes to wear if you're standing all day (hint, it's not uggs)

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
