In ancient Chinese medicine, the bottoms of one’s feet are considered gateways to the rest of the body and closely connected to the nervous system.
The bottoms of your feet, like hands, are chock-full of nerve endings (7,000 in fact) that link up to a variety of different organs throughout the body. When you wear shoes all day, especially unnatural, foot-crushing contraptions like high heels, the electrical signals sent to and from your feet get muffled and suppressed. Stimulating the nerve endings of the feet is more important than you realize. Two ways to achieve greater stimulation is to walk outdoors without shoes (in a park or at the beach) or by using ONIONS.
Onion or garlic, cut up and stuffed at the bottom of a sock, is a novel and little-known way to stimulate nerve endings in the feet. Both bulb vegetables, when applied to the skin, kill germs and bacteria as well as provide phosphoric acid that gets absorbed into the blood stream and acts as a purifying agent. Try it!
