Magnetic insoles for shoes are probably the most obvious and well known of Nikken’s magnetic products. They were the first item that Nikken released when they were founded back in the mid 1970’s in Japan. The magnetic insoles have been around for a long time and they have been improved a few times over the years. They still represent the core of what Nikken does.
Until recently, the Magsteps were the most popular magnetic insoles for shoes. They had large bumps on one surface and were smooth on the other. Nikken has phased them and the Magstrides (a thicker pair of magnetic insoles with a little bit of cushion) out over the past few years and is replacing them with the mSteps and mStrides. The new magnetic insoles have more powerful magnetic nodes and mostly insignificant bumps. They are more of a texture now.
In this post I’m going to talk about how magnetic bracelets affect the body. People get very excited when you talk about using magnets to help your body. Some people adamantly opposed to them, call them a scam and throw the “placebo” word around a lot. Others will talk you ear off about all of the wonderful things that magnets have done for them over the years. By the way, I explain why a placebo is a good thing in and old post.
I learned about magnets, including magnetic bracelets just over 10 years ago and have been using them continuously ever since. I absolutely love them. Let’s see if you will agree with me by the end of this post.
Do you know what your body needs? It needs energy from a variety of sources. I talked about that a couple weeks ago when I started this three-part blog post. Your body also needs plenty of building materials to build and repair itself. I talked about that last week in part two. The final piece that I will talk about here is your body’s need for alternating periods of activity and rest.
People are kind of funny about the activity side. It seems that people either obsess about it by going to the gym to work out, or they ignore it altogether.
Most people ignore their body’s need for sleep. Even governments mess with your sleep. They short your kids on their sleep by having them get on the school bus at 6AM and they adjust your sleeping hours by one hour twice each year.
What your body needs to stay healthy is plenty of activity mixed with periods of quality rest and sleep. That’s what I’m talking about today.
I started a new post last week about what your body needs everyday. I said that your body needs energy, materials for building and repairing, and alternating periods of activity and rest.
In the first part, I talked about your body’s need for a variety of energies. Most come either directly or indirectly from the sun and others come from the Earth that we live on. If you haven’t read it yet, I invite you to read about your body’s energy needs now, then you can come back here.
This time I want to look into the second part of what your body needs everyday, the materials that your body needs to build and repair itself. That would be the food that you eat.
Why does my body need energy, and where does it come from?
Usually something comes up during the week between blog posts that gives me an idea of what to write for my next post, but nothing came up in the past week. When that happens, I turn either to Google Analytics or the Google Search Console.
They are both great places to see what people are searching for that potentially get them to my website. So I decided to hit the Search Console and see what was there. Looking through the keywords, one search phrase jumped out at me – what your body needs.
That was it, not “what your body needs to sleep well,” or “what your body needs to lose weight,” or “what your body needs to stay fit.” Just “what your body needs.”
There are so many things that could mean and so many ways you could go with it. I’m want to take it at face value. What does your body need? For this post I’m going to focus on energy and answer the question, why does my body need energy?
Magnetic insoles are are an insert for your shoe that contains some number of embedded magnets. I have used them myself for just over 10 years and I absolutely love them. You do have magnetic insoles in your shoes, right?
I often get questions about magnetic insoles because I promote and sell them on this website. I believe in them very strongly and decided to address a few questions that I have heard recently about them:
- What do magnetic insoles do?
- What are the benefits of magnetic insoles in your shoes?
- How to use magnetic insoles?
- I have a pacemaker, can I wear magnetic insoles?
- Where to buy magnetic insoles?
I have been writing lately about how real food supports your body much better than artificial chemicals cooked up in a lab. Real food supports your liver and gives it the ingredients to make enzymes for digestion. Real food also supports your heart with the minerals to maintain its electrical system. Now, what are the foods that reduce inflammation throughout your body?
So much of what goes on in your body today has to do with too much inflammation. What is inflammation? What causes it, especially what foods cause inflammation? And what are the foods that reduce inflammation?
The food you eat either helps you or hurts you. What are heart healthy foods?
Your heart is a muscular pump that collects your blood then pumps it throughout your body. One side pumps it through your lungs to oxygenate it then the other side pumps the oxygenated blood everywhere else.
Last time I talked about the foods that support your liver, and that one of the primary functions of your liver is to filter toxins out of your blood. Your heart makes sure that your blood gets there to be cleaned.
This time I am going to share with you some answers to the question, “what are heart healthy foods?”
Recently I’ve been writing about what you believe as far as your health and making the best, most natural choices to support your health. One of the best choices is to get as much of your nutrition as you can from real food, foods that support the liver and other organs in your body.
When people talk about nutrition they usually talk about vitamins and minerals. You need to get your vitamin C and you don’t want to become deficient in iron. That’s fine up to a point, but rarely do any of those nutrients work alone in your body.
To really stay healthy, it’s better to look at the larger nutritional needs of your organs and organ systems.
One part of your body that you really need to take care of to stay healthy is your liver. It is one of the hardest working and most abused organs in your entire body.
I have written the past two weeks about belief, either belief in a product or, the better choice, belief in yourself. Your belief matters, and whatever you believe in the most is what you should use to support your health. Do you believe in magnets? Are magnets good for your health?
While I do think that you should believe in your self the most, and that your dependence on products will decrease when you do, I said in those previous posts that I will still use magnets for their energetic benefits. I believe very strongly in using magnets, and that’s what I want to talk about today.
