Many call it earthing or grounding, the terms are precise. Walking in direct contact with our mother, Earth - has many huge & often overlooked benefits for us.
The profit times, which we live in, do as hard as they can to sell you remedies that have nothing to do with remedy & want to make you a loyal for life consumer.
I was a part of it... as a young kid, my parents never taught me to walk barefoot... instead, they bought me all kinds of synthetic footwear which eventually led to me developing flat feet.
Issue occasionally started to leave me in pain, as my hip didn't develop correctly & everything went in wrong directions.
As I was a kid, I didn't know how the potentially simplest solution can bring me the most benefits. So, instead of just spending time in the nature, barefoot, I was visiting chiropractor after chiropractor hoping they can offer some miraculous tips to me.
But I was wrong, only thing they did was give me more synthetic footwear, in terms of foot pads etc
I don't need to explain you what happened. Obviously my feet never got to original state & as time passed, I developed more pain since wrong posture.
Now when I am way much more experienced, I've found numerous remedies that are actually helping me reverse this state, such as: Yoga, Grounding, Fasting, Meditation etc
From my experience, walking barefoot is one of the most powerful things you can do for your backbone. Believe it or not, simply by practicing it for weeks in the nature, you can start to heal your hurt-by-modern-medicine feet & start enjoying that beautiful life!
When I got addicted to barefoot walking, I almost couldn't stand artificial footwear anymore.
Every single moment I would like to be barefoot, since when I use shoes or flip-flops it's never the same, my posture is never 100% natural.
Only walking in direct contact with our Mother can help you dramatically fast to heal yourself.
Our bodies are desperate for constant connection to the nature (we are a part of it). This kind of relationship nurtures every single one of our cells, keeping us energized & alert.
10 Reasons why I practice Grounding:
- Connection to our beautiful mother, Nature
- Stronger Immunity (increased Red Blood Cell count)
- A mental clarity, allowing me to center my thoughts
- Being present in the NOW
- Pain Reduction (limitless Supply of free Electrons)
- Improved Nerve System (stimulation of acupuncture points)
- Better & clearer eye sight (pressure point on foot connected to eye)
- Stronger Feet & Ankles
- Sleep like a baby! :)
- Makes you age backwards! (if combined with right nutrition)
To someone with different perception, this may sound like complete BS. I can assure you it is not. Even though this comes completely natural to me, I understand it's not the same for everyone. The mental conditioning we undergone is too strong & lot of layers need to be lifted. That's why, you can simply type barefoot walking scientific studies & you'll find plenty of scientific evidence to feed your hunger. If you are that type of guy (I hate science).
