Saturday, September 22, 2012

Here is more from Dr. Mercola regarding to do it, the benefits of doing it etc. I find it all very interesting.

    There is an herbalist, also a doctor no longer practicing regular medicine, whom I've followed online over a decade now... feeds my ongoing education on herbs and their many uses. :) Anyway, years ago he had commented on his morning routine, which included going outside and walking around barefoot while drinking his morning teas. A lot of questions were asked, especially about 'why barefoot' and he explained how it works physiologically but also emotionally, citing that The Bible says we (humans) were created from dust, from the earth, so we need to connect to it in some tangible way on a regular basis. (not sure I agree completely, but it has some merit) He added that as kids we were often, if not always, playing outside in the dirt, running in the grass, and so forth. We didn't realize it then how much good it was doing being just kids. But we grew up and did that less and less... but still found things like walking the beach barefoot, or even just feeling soft grass under our bare feet as adults to be relaxing and at the same time mentally stimulating. Whatever the reason or the science, it seems good for humans in general and that why he made a habit of it. Just ten to maybe 20 minutes a day before really starting his day gave him a good start.
    I haven't read Mercola's articles on it recently - but I do find it is beneficial for me too... when I can do it. There's a lot to it - for me it's clearly better outside on totally natural surfaces as opposed to concrete, asphalt, flooring, etc. It's just the time, and taking care to know if said natural surface has been treated with any pesticides and so forth - not so easy these days.

    As kids we always walked barefoot, as an adult I walk barefoot every opportunity I get. In fact, I get home and the first thing I do is kick off my shoes. What I didnt know is that it is called earthing. Very interesting indeed.
