All disease is accompanied by inflammation and inflammation causes pain. A large percentage of American adults are afflicted with chronic pain. I wonder if making this one simple change could save them a world of hurt.

According to Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D., C.N.S., "Breathable leather allows the body to absorb negatively charged ions from the earth — enough to dial back the body’s production of pain-causing inflammation by 277%!"

"These ions work to neutralize the free radicals that also promote weight gain, cardiovascular disease and insomnia. Folks in warmer areas can get the benefits by walking barefoot on soil, grass or sand!"

It's good to know that you can reap the rewards of walking barefoot in the grass, even when it's cold outside. Just be sure you wear leather-soled shoes. 😉

    Interesting idea. I've had terrible trouble with my feet lately. I've been wearing Sketchers, which are comfortable, but the soles are plastic.

    I found a bunch of Boy Scout moccasin kits on clearance somewhere and bought them. They seem to have foam rubber between the inner and outer sole. Is it a good idea to try to remove that? It looks like it's glued on pretty well.

    @Gail H yes, you would have to remove the foam rubber. It is a non-conductive material and will not let the earth's energy through. Evidently, there are also grounding socks that contain conductive materials so you can ground without physically touching the dirt. But I haven't tried looking for them.

    Interesting. I have a pair of moccasins, will have to get them out to wear in the upcoming warmer months. Thank you!
