30 Bananas a Day!

What do you think about walking around outside barefoot?

From all the benefits I've heard about walking outside barefoot, it really seems great and I'd love to do it.

But there's one thing I'm worried about - All the parasites. In NH around 90% of all deer ticks carry Lyme disease ... That's a really scary number, it's the highest it's ever been. I'm worried I'd get ticks all over my legs & feet if I ran around in the woods with no shoes... Or some sort of parasitic worm burrowing into my sole.


I really hate parasites. I've had some awful encounters with them when I was little - They scare the hell out of me.

Thanks for the link, Alyxandra :). I've heard about these before & They seem awesome. But they're a bit expensive. Maybe in the future but for now, I wanna know about running barefoot :P!

Last year's christmas present and I have worn them for probably 75% of the year and still going strong. That's about how much use I have gotten out of tennis shoes in the past. They are comparable in price, too.

you could try vibram five fingers shoes.      



What is this model called?  I don't see it on their site...

Hey I just watched that last night :)! & That's where I learned it too. I wonder if you can get B12 by walking around barefoot.


Hopefully some people will chime in and inform us about the parasite/tick issue.

Yes, you can get parasites walking in bare feet. 


I just learned tonight that walking barefoot helps you absorb minerals from the earth.


No.  Sorry, but this is just basic anatomy.  This recent study is as close as you will come to researchers taking this idea seriously.



Thanks Nate,


Do any of these footwears work in my conditions -30-40's?



Thanks Nate,


Yup -38 now.


I will have to check soft star.  I have size 14 feet.  Smart move to live in above freezing areas.


I appreciate your feedback on the different options.


Take Care,

I can vouch for the benefits of Earthing.   It saved my life!  Since the cost is a big barrier for most people (especially the uninitiated) I invented a DIY version that I actually prefer -- cost aside.

I posted the instructions here.  So far, over 7700 people have viewed the instructions and I would estimate that 10% of them have made the device with no problems (and lots of Facebook likes).  No parasites, no frozen feet, and almost no cost! 


I love to go around barefoot.  Still have to wear sandals for shopping though. 

Some tribal people never wear shoes and may hike in the woods for miles, and in the middle east, they might only wear very light sandals in the dessert.  Animals do not wear shoes, so why should we?

If you are eating properly and getting plenty of sun, your skin should be healthy enough to handle it, and resistant to parasites.

Contrary to SAD medical and popular belief, healthy skin is not baby soft skin.  It should feel leathery almost like a leather coat.  Strong leathery skin is hard to injure, cut, and resistant to parasites and disease.

Try it out.  You might have to do only a little bit each day until your skin is ready, but you can do it.

Happy New Year,

In Peace, PK
