Bare Feet May Support Better Health

By Tom Herrin

As children, many of us probably spent a good deal of our time walking barefoot.  It was fun and usually accompanied good weather.  There was nothing quite like it as the feel of grass on bare skin was a real pleasure.  It often made us feel that we could do anything and everything.  Maybe it was our youth communicating with us, or maybe it was because of the fact that walking barefoot can contribute lots of good things to our overall health.  It apparently can do much more than that.

Walking Barefoot May Help Maintain Healthy Biorhythms

Our biorhythms do a lot to manage our lives.  They keep our internal clocks ticking and on schedule.  They have to do with our sleep, activity, and our eating.  They also help to maintain our chemical balance.  When this important factor is out of balance, we may seem tired and unproductive.  When it works well, we may seem to be at the top of our game.  It is believed that making this physical contact with the earth may help our biorhythms to operate at their best.  

Walking Barefoot May Reduce Our Chance of Heart Issues

The process of being grounded seems to help increase the surface charge of red blood cells.  This is thought to help prevent clumping of these cells.  Clumping can result in some serious problems such as thickening of the blood.  It is not uncommon for us, as we get older, to have thicker blood.  Thickening can interfere with good blood flow.  In turn, we may see serious health issues such as heart attack or stroke.  If walking barefoot more may help to keep these things away from us, we are more likely to have increased longevity.

Walking Barefoot May Reduce Anxiety and Stress

We all know the damage that may be done to our bodies when we are under stress.  Another benefit of walking barefoot appears to be that it can help to cut some of this.  Thinking back to the days when we were young and going barefoot a lot, it is no wonder that it may reduce stress.  Most of us were not too terribly stressed as children.  If it worked back then, why shouldn't it do so now?  It is certainly worth a try, so take off those shoes and get out there and walk through the grass.  You may be pleasantly surprised as to the effect on your health.
