Baring Your Feet More May Be a Healthy Thing

By Tom Herrin

It seems, at times, that the more we learn about what may be good for us, the more basic some of those things are.  We may go around in a constant circle.  This is the nature of research and gaining new knowledge.  I am grateful for those who have the ability to think outside the box when it comes to this.  We often find that what we did as second nature may have actually provided better support for our overall health.  When many of us were children, we likely spent a good deal of our time walking barefoot.  As scientific thought would have it, apparently this had some real benefit in regards to our overall health, and it may still be useful to us today.

Our Health May Depend on Biorhythms 

Each of us, as individuals, have unique internal workings.  Much of what we do is governed by our biorhythms.  These biorhythms are important in helping us to maintain many of our daily functions.  If they work well, our health can be better.  If they are out of sync, we may find ourselves with a variety of issues.  They control things such as sleeping, eating, and exercising.  It seems that walking barefoot may be able to help us to maximize our biorhythms by literally grounding us to take advantage of the Earth's negative charges.

Bare Feet May Play a Role in Reducing Inflammation

Many of us suffer from pain and inflammation from time-to-time.  One study found that contact between our bodies and the ground may lessen some of this.  Cortisol is a hormone that causes us to have greater levels of stress.  It controls our urge to fight or flee.  It seems that walking barefoot may reduce our body's production of this.  In the study, participants experienced less pain and inflammation after having spent eight weeks in a simulated natural environment in which they mimicked sleeping on bare ground.

We Are Never Too Old to Walk Barefoot

I am always seeking whatever I can find to make my health a little better.  Those little things can add up lots of times to much bigger results.  I remember enjoying the feel of walking barefoot when I was young.  I loved the feel of grass under my feet, and I felt like I could do anything.  We may never be too old to try this.  Even though we may do so around the house, it won't hurt to take off our shoes and spend some time walking around outdoors.  It may feel great and keep us a little bit healthier.
