CORRECT TOES TOE SPACERS: REALIGNING INFLAMED FEET

Leave a comment

ONE PART OF A HEALTHY NON-SURGICAL SOLUTION

I recently purchased a product called  Correct Toes for help with straightening out  hammer toes. realigning my feet and minimizing my bunions. I have used  Yamuna Zake’s products for my feet for self foot massage. The Yamuna Foot Walkers are very helpful in a different way. I also wanted something that would help to separate and elongate my toes while doing daily tasks and resting. Correct Toes answers this need.

Soaking my feet in a mixture of epsom salts, bentonite clay, vinegar and honey has been helpful for my feet and my entire body. There are detox foot recipes similar to this online. I  just keep it simple and add all ingredients to a small plastic tub and add hot water. Filtered water is best. Detoxing through the feet is something that is a part of many healing traditions. Drawing out toxins through the feet is a part of Traditional Medicine throughout world. Pedicures are so popular today for many reasons. Removing callouses, fungal and other necrotic material makes people feel better, and not just because of how it looks, or feels to the feet alone. What is on our feet is a reflection of the rest of our body. Link for some photos here.

Dr. Jennifer Daniels, MD has some helpful ideas for detoxing through the feet which I first heard about through her group classes. She probably talks about this in some of her radio shows which can be accessed on her website.

These Toe Separators from Yoga Toes are different in that they can NOT be worn while walking around. Yoga Toes are less expensive than Correct Toes. Depending on your needs they may work for you. One thing Yoga Toes are good for is wearing while soaking our feet. I think you could do the same with Correct Toes but the ingredients in the Foot Soaking Formulas might degrade the materials that the Correct Toes are made of. Correct Toes are made to be flexible so they are most likely not going to last as long if exposed to Epsom Salts, etcetera.

Sitting down to soak our feet is relaxing but challenging for people. Making time for ourselves in our own homes is sometimes problematic. With so much to do soaking our feet seems like a luxury. In the end, Detox Foot Soaks have helped me be more productive and feel more calmly energized. Combined with the Correct Toes, that can be worn while being active, foot soaks have become something I enjoy making regular time for.

FYI, being active wearing Correct Toes is something a person builds up to incrementally. As frustrating as it can be to many of us, healing is a process.

Our feet are important to take care of. Aside from the points covered in Reflexology Theory, our feet are a mirror for what is going on in our entire body. Crusty, callused feet with thick, ridged, brittle nails, etc. are a commentary about the rest of our health. Our feet tell a story that is not to be ignored.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
