The operational complexity of the human anatomy is a veritable cornucopia of wonder. Most of which is completely ignored until a problem occurs.
One of the incredible aspects lies in our nervous system, which reads like an in-depth road map. As wonderful as our circulatory system is, the nervous system is equal. Our nervous system is over 60,000 miles in length. More than twice the diameter of the Earth.
The central nervous system is connected to every body part by 43 pairs of nerves. Twelve teams go to and from the brain, with 31 couples from the spinal cord. “The nervous system has two major parts: the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS ).”
My apologies; I sometimes get carried away. I have been trained in several Martial Arts forms, including but not limited to Win Chung, Aikido, Judo, Dim Mak, and Tae Kwon Do. I have been under the tutelage of 3 true “Masters” one of my favorites was Master Min Suk Song. A”Humble” killing machine. A heavyweight Champion of Korea for several years. Master Song also trained the special forces and the Presidential bodyguard.
I learned nerve-dependent strikes to the knee area that causes a drunken assailant to vomit immediately and a strike to the tooth area that temporarily paralyzes the opposite side of the body.
As a professional Cinematographer/Videographer, I produced an acupuncture video for a Doctor who was an expert in his field. On a side note, I became a “pain-in-the-butt” to anyone that insisted on putting holes in their children’s ears after learning about the 200 hundred acupuncture points in the ear.
I have filmed over 2,500 weddings in my career. And all of them have had one thing in common, besides the Bride and Groom, women that complain about the pain from shoes. Several Brides had a second pair of comfortable shoes to adorn after the initial “pomp and circumstance.” The feet have 36 points that affect major organs and functions of the body. I touch on this briefly in my book, From Chaos to Calm, making your life your own, in the section about Peaceful Sleep.
Like so many things in life, the functionality of an item has been replaced with trends, fashion statements, labels, consumerism, commercialism, and brands. Oblivious to its actual purpose. Your poor feet are one of the primary victims. Your feet are the first thing that hits the ground and the last to leave the ground. The placement and strike pattern on surfaces can affect your health.
So, remember, the next time you feel like your “feet are killing you,” your shoes might actually be literally “Killing You!”
