Shortcuts are awesome.
Here’s an idea which means an almost insignificant change to your behaviour yet it maintains and improves your health in a big way. The gift of a recommendation to help you keep your health resolutions.
I damaged my back and was in daily back pain for 13 years. That’s all sorted now but I do maintain my back health with chiropractic and magnetic insoles. This is why:
Magnets: As humans we’re electro-magnetic creatures – that’s how we absorb nutrients, use our muscles and think. The Earth is a huge magnet and this magnetic field serves to prevent the solar wind’s charged particles from stripping the ozone layer that protects us. Magnets are shown to attract iron in our blood to the areas they’re placed which stimulates the healing process.
Feet: Reflexology manipulates our feet to stimulate energy throughout our bodies and practioners treat illnesses, relieve pain and stimulate specific organs from the feet. I’ve found it very useful myself. In addition, we’re on our feet all day and there’s nothing wrong with a good foot rub!
Having magnetic insoles means an important part of your body is being bathed in healing energy for your whole wellbeing. It stimulates blood and nerve flow and creates an environment for natural healing and protection. I’ve had the Nikken brand of insoles in my shoes for about a decade now and in addition to never having sore feet, I believe they have helped maintain my back health and general health. I have tried specific kinesiology tests when standing on them and my strength and balance are without doubt considerably better. (I also recommend magnets for other ailments and used to use a pad on my lower back to help relieve pain and I slept in a magnetic cocoon!)
The long and short of it is that I recommend you get a pair of Nikken insoles and put them in your daily shoes for your health’s sake. They cost about $25-$50 on ebay and although thicker, the most comfortable are the MagStrides. The other ones, the MagSteps, are hard and have dimples which I personally find uncomfortable. They have a new type but I haven’t tried them.BTW you can easily swap them between shoes.

Have you tried magnets – did you find it useful?
