Ready for a real grounding experience? “Earthing,” a.k.a. walking barefoot in the grass, has been found to resynchronize levels of cortisol in the body and neutralize free radicals, which overall lessens chronic inflammation in the body. This means that by simply taking your shoes off and walking outdoors regularly you could help your body fight off cancer, diabetes, heart disease, strokes, thyroid issues and even ADD/ADHD to name just a few disorders linked to inflammation.
Biological facts aside, you know it just feels good! What’s better than walking barefoot on the beach or sinking your feet into some mud? Think about it, modern man has become separated from his natural environment. He’s traded his fashionable animal skin shoes (which are not insulated and thus still connect to the Earth’s electrons) or going barefoot for the latest Jimmy Choo shoes.
So what are you waiting for? Tap into our Earth’s electrons by ditching your rubber insulated shoes and recalibrate your body’s biological clock. Your organs, tissues and cells will thank you for it!

VERSE 1 I can remember how proud I used t' be When Dad an' Mother would buy new shoes for me Now, that's the feeling we've all had How new shoes would make you glad But the best time, if you recall When you wore no shoes at all
CHORUS: Barefoot days, when we were just a kid Barefoot days, O boy, the things we did We'd go down to the shady brook With a bent pin for a hook We'd fish all day an' fish till night But the darn ole fish refuse to bite How we'd slide down some ole cellar door We'd slide an' slide, till our pants got tore You know, that slidin' down th cellar door Make your clothes tear, an' you'll get a lot'a splinters But you must'n tell where O boy, what joy, we had in barefoot days
VERSE 2 We were so happy, till Sunday came along Boy, that was one day, when ever'thing seemed wrong All the stuff they give was starched Off to church, we had to march But no wonder we had the blues Cause we had to wear our shoes
CHORUS: Barefoot days, when we were just a kid Barefoot days, O boy, the things we did We'd go down to the shady brook With a bent pin for a hook We'd fish all day an' fish till night But the darn ole fish refuse to bite How we'd slide down some ole cellar door Slide, an' slide, until our pants got tore Have to go home an' stay in bed Till Mother got busy with the needle an' thread O boy, what joy, we had in barefoot days
