Natural Foot Health vs. Shoe Industry
By Dr. Ray McClanahan
I was recently on vacation with my family in Hawaii. One evening, we attended a Luau, where nearly every native Hawaiian had beautiful spread toes and strong healthy feet. That is not often the case on the mainland. I couldn’t help but wonder if it was related to the fact that they work and live barefoot and in flat footwear. Contrast that with the visiting mainlanders’ feet that I observed on the beach and poolside, with the usual hammertoes and bunions. Their feet were shaped like ill-fitting footwear.

But then I would continue aging, just in a time that had already occurred. Just because I could go back to the time before I was even born doesn't stop the clock from steadily ticking away time.

By Bob Neinast, a.k.a., Ahcuah
Dr. Lieberman of Harvard University has yet another new study out, Strike type variation among Tarahumara Indians in minimal sandals versus conventional running shoes. As you can see from the study title, he visited the Tarahumara Indians, who were featured in Born to Run.
What he found is that conventional running shoes really do weird stuff to feet. To continue reading, please visit: https://ahcuah.wordpress.com/2014/05/22/dr-lieberman-i-presume/
