High Heel Shoes and the Blues

With every step a female takes on cement or carpet while wearing high heel shoes, she sends an electrical shock from the metatarsal bones in her feet up the bone in her legs.

A woman should wear high heel shoes as rarely as possible. Long term use of these shoes poses a great health risk to women. When a woman wears high heels, the bulk of her body weight is on her heels, which can cause hardened heels. Many women right now have heels and soles that feel like sandpaper due to wearing high heel shoes long term.

A lot of women also have “hammer toe” (corns) from wearing high heel shoes, the ones that actually cover the whole feet and toes.

High heels place tremendous strain on the ankles, knees, hips and back. As a result, the spine is thrown out of alignment, which can cause other functional issues.

Many women actually experience sprained ankles, numbness, tendonitis and other health problems from wearing high heels or improperly fitting shoes.

Wearing high heel shoes is a bad decision that will lead you to be singing the blues for years to come.

Natural Healing

Going barefoot is totally natural. Let your feet feel the grass, the dirt, the sand, the water, the rocks and more. Go to the beach and bury your feet in the sand. Walk in a river or stream. Sit on a large rock with your feet firmly planted. Grass, dirt, water, sand, etc. are healing.

If you wear high heels, massage your feet until the muscles and tendons start to relax. You can also roll your foot back and forth over the top of a tennis ball for a more in-depth massage.

If you simply can’t stop wearing high heels, consider the fact that many women wear shoes that are too small. To keep your feet healthy, try this:

  • Get your foot properly sized at a department store
  • The higher the heel, the more swelling will take place over the day, so consider wearing a half-size larger, especially if the toe is very pointed.
  • If the shoe isn’t a perfect fit in the store, it’s only going to get worse after you leave.
  • Try shoes on at the end of the day, since that’s when they will be the most tender.

Reconnect yourself.

    Q: I was diagnosed with lupus 2 years ago and looking back, I see how I opened myself to contract the dis-ease. I have been symptom and medication free since October 2007, due to a major lifestyle change. STRESSFREE!!! The joints in my hands and feet are still paining me, especially my feet (no cute shoes for me). Although I prefer to be barefoot, (maybe I should move to a warmer climate), I need to get rid of these pains in my joints. I would like to know what could be the message that I'm obviously missing and is manifesting as joint pain?

    A:



    The joints deal with bending and the metaphysical message the joints convey is being too rigid, too stiff or stubborn. Learn to bend in many respects. Let go! Go with the flow. This applies to some area of your life (life issues).

    Q: I have been having a problem with my feet and ankles swelling off and on for the past few years. I have seen medical Dr.'s who diagnosed me with tendonitis, said they weren't sure of the problem so they would have to run tests, and who gave me prescriptions for water pills, but the swelling continues. What could be the cause?

    A:

    Perhaps, too much sodium (salt) in the diet. You should perform the FULL BODY DETOX which comes along with a dietary change (as you need to change your diet). There's plenty you can do, but detox for starters.

    Q: Good Morning, hope all is well. My 11 yr. old son has a serious problem! The skin between his toes on both feet are peeling, and he has sores. The rest of his feet look fine. Also, on his arms & legs he has black spots. As if he had a mosquito bite, and scratched it. But that's not the case. What is this? I've tried tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar, and a cream from our local herb store for his feet. To this day nothing has helped. I don't give him meds from our so-called doctors. However, I am considering taking him to get a diagnosis. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thanking you in advance and have a wonderful day!

    A:

    Please read the article on our site entitled "Skin Disorder = Blood Disorder" as your son is dealing with a blood disorder. Let his feet breathe which can be done by allowing him to wear sandals, or open air shoes. Allow him to soak his feet in warm water with about half a cup of sea salt, and 1 ounce of hydrogen peroxide (for about 30 minutes). After the soak, rub his feet down and in-between his toes with our Healing Skin Oil. Perform daily! Consider having the child completing the Children's Liquid Cleanse.

    Q: My fiance has experienced water retention and discoloration in his right foot and leg for around 2 years. Doctors had him on water pills, coreg for vascular issues and glyberide for high blood sugars. He ordered the Pancreas kit and around a week into the program experienced more swelling in the foot and leg. He stopped the program to resume taking the water pill to see if this would help. He has gained around 12 lbs which is water held in this leg. I know the natural way of good nutrition and herbs is a good course to follow but can you offer some suggestions to help these issues. 1. water retention 2. His stomach rumbles and gurgles 24 hours a day to the point where I thought our neighbors were dragging furniture across the floor. This has caused him considerable embarrassment at work. We are eating a vegan diet about 50% raw-50%-cooked. Oddly enough when he eats a standard American diet the rumbling stops. 3. High blood pressure. Thank you so much for answering my previous letter to you. I believe in what you are doing, and know that the body will heal at it's own pace with proper care. I have resolved a urinary problem just a week into your Detox program and think it's great.

    A:

    Your husband is NOT getting proper circulation to his extremities. He should have not stopped the Pancreas kit because it is common for things to get worse before better. He should have judged himself after the kit was finished in 3-weeks. He experienced the HEALING CRISIS and stopped! He should complete the kit and regimen (perhaps even starting over).

    His stomach is making noises because he's having digestive problems. He needs to eat as much raw foods as possible and rink plenty of vegetable juice. SAD foods stops his stomach from gurgling because that's what's in his stomach; and when he does not give his stomach what it wants (a sign of fasting and cleansing), he hear the noise from his stomach. Again, the healing crisis. Things will get worse before they get better. However, you don't stop!

    High blood pressure is due to his toxic state and poor circulation!

    Have him perform the Full Body Detox and right after the Full Body Detox, the Pancreas kit and regimen.

    There's healing from him!

    Please peruse some of our free articles so as to truly learn what's going on with his/your bodies pertaining to healing.

    Q: I am 47 years old, African American female, whose health has been failing for the past six years (75 lbs overweight, high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, poor circulation, long-term/short-term memory loss). I have a uterine fibroid the size of a 23-week-old fetus. Rather take the natural way out. God does work in mysterious ways?I stumbled upon your website today. My plan is to do the Full Body CLeanse first. Please advise me on the use of the Female Cleanse and Fibroid Formula. Can the two be used in conjunction?

    A:

    We recommend that you perform the Full Body Cleanse (and the soak mentioned in the Full Body Detox Companion) for 20 days followed by the Female Cleanse for 20 days, followed by the  Weight Release Kit and Regimen. After you finish your cleanses, your regimen should consist of Fibroid Formula, Weight Release Formula, Electric Greens, and Detox Tea.

    Do not use the Fibroid Formula in conjunction with the Female Cleanse or any other cleanse. Each cleanse must maintain its own set of formulas. Only use the Fibroid Formula once your cleanses are complete.

    Purchase the Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual for better and healthier food choices (on the cleanses and while off the cleanses). It is best to optimize your diet in order to achieve the best results and potentially heal yourself from your variety of ailments.
