It’s important to walk bare-feet on grass, soil, sand, know what Ayurveda has to say!

Everyday morning and evening it’s an healthy exercise to walk bare-feet on soil, grass, sand, pebbles or any natural surface. Called earthing, walking bare feet has many advantages for health. It’s generally believed to reduce stress and rejuvenate the body.

Here we bring you what our Ayurveda says about it:

Ayurveda says feet are connected to the head

According to an article on Ayurveda plus World, Ayurveda, says that there’s connection between the soles of the feet and the head. There are energy points called karma pathways that connect the feet and the head.  “Vagbhata (Astanga Hridya: Uttara tantra: 15: 66-67) says that there are 4 important nerves that run from the soles to the head, affecting the eyes and ears,” the article said.

Thus anything that soothes and relaxes the feet has an impact on the mind as well. Walking bare feet on natural surfaces like soil, sand, pebbles, grass through the feet impacts our mind.

More on Earthing

In an article titled ‘Earthing: The Most Important Discovery ever’ Martin Zucker, a leading researcher on “earthing” quotes Ota Kte, a researcher, writer and tribal leader, “The old people came literally to love the soil. They sat on the ground with the feeling of being close to a mothering power. It was good for the skin to touch the Earth, and the old people liked to remove their moccasins and walk with their bare feet on the sacred Earth. The soil was soothing, strengthening, cleansing, and healing.”

Martin mentions that just as Sunlight provides us with Vitamin D, there’s something significant that the earth also provides us.

Just as sunlight provides us with vitamin D, the Earth provides us with another essential ingredient. Call it vitamin G: G for ground. We regard it as an overlooked factor in disease causation – a missing link. Gary Schwartz, PhD, a professor of psychology and medicine at the University of Arizona, suggests that “Earthing may be as fundamental as sunlight, air, water, and nutrients,” he wrote.

According to Martin, walking bare feet has benefits like “anti-inflammatory and calming for neurological disease – simply stated Pitta/Vata disorders. Earth having the qualities of cool, dense and heavy, it makes sense.”

So let yourself experience walking barefoot on grass or go for a long walk bare feet on the beach. Or create a pathway with pebbles in your lawn and experience health without medicine.

“To quickly experience Earthing yourself, just walk or sit barefoot on grass, sand, gravel, or unpainted concrete – ground surfaces that conduct energy. Wood, asphalt, and plastic do not conduct. Stay for at least a half hour or so and at the end of that time you will notice you are calmer, and if you had pain to begin with, it will be less, or maybe even gone,” he said.
