#165 – The power of your bare feet with Dr Emily Splichal

This week we are very excited to bring you this episode with Dr Emily Splichal. We would be focusing on the power of your bare feet. Dr Emily is a podiatrist who has a passion for health and longevity and is an absolute whiz when it comes to anything to do with the feet.


Dr Emily explains how significant it is to understand our bare feet. She said that we use our feet for sense. When we wear shoes on our bare feet we take away the ability for them to fully guide us the way that they historically have. That’s not to say you should be barefoot everywhere. We did touch on this and also covered major highlights on the power of your bare feet.


Dr Emily takes a deep look into the activation of the vagus nerve through the feet. How earthing/ grounding helps her patients, the removal of free radicals through your feet, how there are 26 bones in the feet (however it’s common for people to have an extra one) 107 ligaments, the skin on the base of your feet being very similar to the hands and what we touch with our feet will respond with our nerves (almost like reading the ground as we walk), and so much more.


This podcast is full of insights and worth a few listens on the power of your bare feet. Thrilled to listen to more amazing life facts listen to our podcast sections with health experts.
