How To Relieve Your Back Pain By Wearing Minimalist Footwear

borntorun

“Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt? In search of an answer, Christopher McDougall sets off to find a tribe of the world’s greatest distance runners and learn their secrets, and in the process shows us that everything we thought we knew about running is wrong.

Isolated by the most savage terrain in North America, the reclusive Tarahumara Indians of Mexico’s deadly Copper Canyons are custodians of a lost art. For centuries they have practiced techniques that allow them to run hundreds of miles without rest and chase down anything from a deer to an Olympic marathoner while enjoying every mile of it. Their superhuman talent is matched by uncanny health and serenity, leaving the Tarahumara immune to the diseases and strife that plague modern existence. With the help of Caballo Blanco, a mysterious loner who lives among the tribe, the author was able not only to uncover the secrets of the Tarahumara but also to find his own inner ultra-athlete, as he trained for the challenge of a lifetime: a fifty-mile race through the heart of Tarahumara country pitting the tribe against an odd band of Americans, including a star ultramarathoner, a beautiful young surfer, and a barefoot wonder.” –Born To Run by Christopher McDougall

Humans have been bare foot running for 200,000 years.

Somewhere along the way it become uncool. That’s weird. Good marketing. Bad programming.

Little known face, high heel shoes actually were first invented for short men with insecurity issues.

Why do we keep going against nature?

Humans were designed to walk barefoot and you don’t even have to be a runner to wear these. You just have to be human.

When I Wear Minimalist Footwear I feel great.

I’m actually addicted to the barefoot type of sneaker and it’s hard for me to go back and wear regular pairs now.

I’ve heard the same thing from people who get addicted to wearing Vans, another zero drop type of sneaker.

I own a few different pairs from different companies but I like the company VIVO a lot.

They even have casual options for those with a sense of style .

Footwear with an elevated sole can be bad for you. (link)

Footwear with a heel can be really bad for you. (link)

Don’t do things that might be bad for you.

Wear minimalist footwear. Because when you do, every step you take feels like a mini ground massage. Reflexology at its finest.

Your feet will thank you. The neglected and under worked muscles in your ankles and calves will thank you. God will thank you.

Wearing barefoot sneakers makes you a stronger human.

Your posture will be better.

Your performance will be better.

Making a switch to minimalist footwear can even help with knee and back pain.

It’s also a great way to rehab from an ankle injury because it can build up those weak muscles to prevent more injuries in the future.

They’re also great for lifting weights. All the best weight lifters wear minimalist footwear.

Even Arnold.

They are so light and easy that it’s hard for me to put on a pair of work boots after I get accustomed to the feel. They’re actually very addicting.

When you wear these you’re affecting your alignment for the better. Don’t over complicate what you put on your feet. Wear Minimalist footwear.

Buy a pair of minimalists on Amazon.

Because Barefooters do it better.

Inactive-sodium palmate, sodium palm kernelate, sodium chloride, glycerin, tetra sodium edta, tetrasodium etidronate, and water.

Tea Tree Oil for Acne. …
Tea Tree Oil for Hair. …
Tea Tree Oil for Cleaning. …
Tea Tree Oil for Psoriasis and Eczema. …
Tea Tree Oil for Toenail Fungus and Ringworm. …

“Defense Soap Is Considered The Ultimate Soap For Wrestlers, Jiu-Jitsu And MMA Athletes. It’s Supercharged With Beneficial Essential Oils That Are Known For Their Ability To Help Guard Against Grunge And Mat Grime.”

That’s a quote from the Defense Soap website. A lot of wrestlers and fighters love this soap because it prevents them from getting nasty ass skin infections on the mat. You don’t have to be a fighter to gain the benefits though.

How To Beat Inflammation Using Turmeric

What is a Spice?

Let me grab a quote from the Wikipedia Spice page:

A spice is a dried seed, fruit, root, bark, or vegetable substance primarily used for flavoring, coloring or preserving food.

Spices are distinguished from herbs, which are parts of leafy green plants used for flavoring or as a garnish.

Many spices have antimicrobial properties. This may explain why spices are more commonly used in warmer climates, which have more infectious disease, and why the use of spices is prominent in meat, which is particularly susceptible to spoiling.

When I eat Turmeric my brain tingles.

Turmeric_BNC

Curcumin, the main ingredient in the spice turmeric, is currently the subject of intense scientific inquiry, especially as it relates to the brain.

Interventions designed to reduce inflammation using natural substances like turmeric have been described in medical literature dating back more than two thousand years.

It actually has been used in traditional Chinese and Indian (ayurvedic) medicine for thousands of years.

Even though it is well know for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, its ability to increase BDNF (Brain-derived neurotrophic factor) in particular is what is getting the attention of neuroscientists around the world.

That’s the part that got my attention too. It’s a brain enhancer.

Turmeric is crazy because it has the ability to activate genes to produce a vast array of antioxidants that serve to protect our mitochondria. It also improves glucose metabolism.

Basically a bunch of epidemiologists figured out that communities that use turmeric in abundance have WAY less dementia.

So people are using this spice as a way to prevent and relieve symptoms of Alzheimers and dementia.

You should definitely add this amazing spice to your daily protocol.

Chances are you don’t want to eat curry everyday though. So the good news is you can take it as a supplement. It is a water-soluble supplement so it’s metabolized pretty fast. That also means it’s probably best to take it twice daily.

I take 400 mg twice daily and even sprinkle the powder on certain food dishes.

The bottom line is I take this because it enhances my brain function and has powerful antioxidant effects that neutralize free radicals as it stimulates my body’s own antioxidant enzymes. Yeah… it’s pretty bad ass.

You can go to your local health food store and pick some up or purchase right now here on Amazon.

The good news is, chocolate is a plant and so is coconut!

“Chocolate will make you feel better.” -GOD

Nourish your mind and body and satiate your hunger with healthy fats, protein and fiber!

WARNING: THESE ARE ADDICTING AND AMAZINGLY GOOD FOR YOU.

CHOCOLATE + COCONUT = PARADISE INSIDE YOUR BODY.

Coconut is a super-nutrient food, nourishes your brain and body, satiating hunger with healthy fats, protein and fiber.

When you eat coconut, the MCTs it contains are transported from the intestinal tract to the liver and immediately transformed into fuel.

This then means there is very little fat left to circulate and leave deposits in the body.

EATING COCONUT CAN PREVENT AGAINST HEART DISEASE AND STROKE.

As it turns out, coconut meat’s measurable vitamins A and E, and polyphenols and phytosterols, all work together to decrease the levels of LDL cholesterol.

DARK CHOCOLATE IS EVERYONE’S FAVORITE CHEAT FOOD.

Dark chocolate is one of natures strongest antioxidants.

That means it’s really good at getting toxins out of your body.

Toxins are bad. They will kill you.

Eat dark chocolate and live.

Dark chocolate contains hundreds of blissful, health-promoting properties that support a positive mood and healthy cognition.

This is a brain-healthy treat that won’t make you fat and should never make you feel guilty. Eat as many as your heart desires. Then run to the gym in your weighted vest.

ALSO IT IS GLUTEN FREE!
