If you want healthy feet for your kids, please read on…
Foot problems are extremely common. The majority of them have their origin in childhood.
98% of us are born with perfect healthy feet, yet by the time we reach adulthood, many of us suffer from various kinds of foot problems ranging from corns and calluses to bunions, deformities, blood-circulation problems, low arches and worse. Not to mention ankle-, knee- and back-related pains, many of them having their origin from feet.
In countries where people don´t use shoes, the foot problems are very rare.
Dr. Lynn Staheli, director of orthopedics at Children’s Hospital and Medical Center in Seattle, has concluded that the children with the healthiest and most supple feet are those who habitually go barefoot. He states:
“If you look at a place like China and you compare the feet of those who don’t wear shoes with the feet of those who do, you find that the non-shoe-wearers have better flexibility and mobility,” he said. “Their feet are stronger, they have fewer deformities and less complaints than the shoewearing population.”
