Modern Shoes Could be the Worst Invention Ever - Here’s Why

Modern society has progressively brought the world further and further away from nature in many ways. One example being, cell phones and television taking up a huge percentage of people’s day to day lives. This form of disconnection is quite clear to see, however some ways are less obvious.

Have you considered the fact that we are not meant to wear shoes? We were born with nothing on our feet but flesh and skin - so did God make a mistake? No. We were made exactly as we should be… Barefoot. The practice of walking around barefoot, connected to the Earth is known as Grounding or Earthing. The Earth holds a limitless supply of free electrons that are immensely healing to our bodies. This healing energy in the form of negative ions (electrons) can be easily accessed by touching your skin to the Earth. Walking barefoot in the grass, soil, or sand is the most common method of Grounding; it is what nature intended us to be doing 24/7. Modern shoes often have a rubber sole, or some other form of synthetic material. These unnatural materials block the flow of free electrons from reaching your body, thus preventing you from becoming grounded to the Earth. When you truly understand the level of healing associated with Grounding, you will understand why we believe modern shoes are among the worst inventions ever created.

“So what are the benefits of Grounding?” Grounding has been extensively researched and hosts a wide variety of incredible healing benefits. Here is a list of some of the amazing benefits of Grounding:

  • Reduces and Prevents Inflammation [Ref: 1, 2, 4, 6, 12, 15, 17]

  • Eliminates or Substantially Reduces Pain [Ref: 1, 2, 6, 12, 17]

  • Improves Quality of Sleep [Ref: 1, 17]

  • Increases Energy [Ref: 1, 7, 15, 17]

  • Increases Production of Melatonin [Ref: 17]

  • Normalizes Cortisol (Stress Hormone) Levels [Ref: 1, 17]

  • Decreases Stress [Ref: 1, 3, 5, 8, 17]

  • Improves Mood [Ref: 1, 14]

  • Reduces Thickness of Blood [Ref: 10, 13, 17]

  • Improves Blood Flow [Ref: 2, 11, 15]

  • Shields Against Low Frequency EMFs [Ref: 9, 17, 18, 19]

  • Speeds Wound Healing [Ref: 2, 6, 12]

  • Reduces Muscle Damage and Accelerates Muscular Recovery [Ref: 6, 12, 16, 17]

  • Anti-aging Effects [Ref: 17]

  • Improves Immune System Response [Ref: 6, 7, 12, 16, 17]

“How can we get the benefits of Grounding while inside our homes?” Modern homes are not built to be grounded, which means while we are inside we are disconnected from the Earth. At No Choice, we provide the ultimate solution to this modern day problem. Because our garments are made of pure silver, they have the ability to be grounded to the Earth. Through the use of our Earthing Extension Cable, you can access the healing benefits of Grounding from inside your home! Simply connect the Earthing Extension Cable to the ground outside, then connect it to your favorite EMF-Protective Grounding Garments from No Choice and voilà, you are now grounded to the Earth! Conclusion

In summary, as a society we have been systematically disconnected from nature. It is time to reconnect with the healing forces of nature and bring back an abundance of health and vitality to this planet. Whenever you’re outside, get your bare feet in the grass and experience the tremendous healing benefits of Grounding. Whenever you're inside, wear your favorite No Choice grounding garments and connect it to the grounding attachment to experience the benefits of Grounding from the comforts of your home.
