Benefits Of Walking Barefoot

Complementary and Alternative Medicine shows that walking barefoot helps strengthen heart health, fight stress and boost immunity. Walking also improves metabolism and strengthens mental health.
Walking barefoot is a new elixir of youth. The American Association of Podiatric Medicine recommends encouraging children to stand barefoot - in a secure environment - as long as possible. The contact with the ground would maintain the balance of the human body, improve memory and concentration. Besides these aspects, discover the 4 benefits of practicing 5-minute walk barefoot daily.
1 - Improving the quality of sleep
The main objective of barefoot walking is to reconnect the body to the energy of the earth. The connection with nature helps to rebalance the electrostatic energy of the body. It serves to remove the positive ions and negative ions that provide relaxation and promote relaxation.
You've probably noticed that after a swim in a lake or in the ocean, you feel relaxed and you sleep much better. That would be the effect of negative ions in your body. Walking barefoot also help balance the circadian rhythm and allowing your body natural clock to regulate the time of sleeping.
2 - Improving the overall posture
Most exercises mediation and Vedic wisdom, such as yoga, tai chi or martial arts are practiced barefoot. First, they put to contribution your brain through increased vigilance and, secondly, they strengthen and provide more flexibility to the muscles and feet. Walking barefoot helps restore balance and body stability and ensure postural alignment. It also relieves you of the pain caused by orthopedic shoes.
British researchers from the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital have created a 3D scanner to visualize the effects of wearing high heels on health. According to doctors, this new technology confirms, first hand, these shoes impose pressure to the feet and ankles which may cause pain and injury in the long term.
3 - Improved sense
Rodolfo Llinas, professor and chair of the Department of Physiology & Neuroscience Faculty of Medicine of New York University, notes that our thoughts and our ability to speak, to act, to feel the world around us and dream are essentially conducted by electrical impulses.
Thus, walking barefoot stimulates the nerves and pressure centers at the feet, thereby arousing the various connection points related to these organs.
4 - Improving emotional balance
It is proven that the human body is composed of over 70% water. Thus, direct contact with soil helps create an ionic balance within cells. The National Institute of Biomedical and Scientific Research of the United States confirmed that the surface of the Earth has a negative electric potential. Accordingly, the direct contact with the ground (walking, sitting or lying) transmit to the human body the same electrical potential as the Earth. This induces electrophysiological changes favorable to optimum and improved autonomic nervous system health.
As part of their study, the researchers applied four electrical stimulation from electrodes placed on the skin of the palms and feet of various subjects of different genders. They have shown an increase in relaxation, thanks to the effect of contact with Earth. Thus, they concluded that the practice of walking barefoot helps improve the well-being and achieve mental and emotional balance
