Pluggz Grounding Footwear

Most of us love that yummy feeling of swishing our bare feet on grass or in sand on the beach. There’s a reason. It’s physiological. The ground has natural energy stored inside called electrons which our bodies need – some crave. When our feet make direct contact with the ground these electrons flow into our body. It’s called grounding — also known as earthing.
Direct contact with the earth is the most direct and natural way to get grounded for sure. Other means are wearing shoes that are what’s called conductive that enable the flow of this energy into the body. And there are conductive products you can plug into inside as well through a simple grounding cord.
When outside in your bare feet watch out for the pitfalls and perils.  Having a clean patch of ground or perfectly manicured beach to walk on is key. And you don’t need to walk either. Just bare feet to the ground so you can see what’s underfoot is all it takes.
Regarding the perils there are many that lurk in public places. These include dog, town and city parks as well as beaches, lake sides and athletic fields. They all can be strewn with harmful and often not visible culprits.  For instance — dog pee and poop or just  residue; beverage can tops, broken bottle pieces, pigeon droppings and even more unsavory items such as condoms and even syringes. In addition to many puncturing your feet and creating a beeline for bacteria to seep into your body, germs and fungi invisible on the surface can have a hey day getting into your system just by coming in contact with your bare skin. Our skin is our largest organ of transfer into our bodies, more so than what we put in our mouths.
So beware the seduction of beckoning nature and its lure. Just watch where you walk when barefoot.

 

StellarCleenz

Many civilizations dating back to 4,000B.C. used silver – a precious metal — for a variety of wellness and medical applications. In fact it was considered the primary antimicrobial agent prior to the advent of pharmaceutical antibiotics dating back to the early 1940s. Today, silver – a time-tested and well documented solution to many of life’s daily concerns is being introduced back into our mainstream lives.

Pure silver kills germs, fungi and viruses, as well as inhibits the growth of bacteria that can cause odors, including stinky feet. Pluggz is among those who value this amazing natural element which led them to introduce a new pure silver cloth, called Stellarcleenz, into their pluggzSPA line.

Bacteria and viruses are becoming more pervasive today. And increasing global travel makes it easier for them to be well seasoned travelers. Many chemically based anti-microbial products (a surging market), build up resistance after long and repeated use. And those containing 62% alcohol or ethanol – a common formula – can dry and crack skin and expose bodies to vulnerable gateways into our internal systems. (Moms in particular dislike alcohol based products. Who wants to put what can equal a 120 poof level of alcohol into a kid’s systems? Most say “no way”). In addition, alcohol based sanitizers all note they can be harmful if ingested or get in one’s eyes, as well as being flammable under certain conditions. Silver has none of these warnings.

We are increasingly being introduced to new nutritional ways of living and bombarded with messages that we should care a great deal about our diets. Our skin, however, is the largest organ of absorption into our bodies. What we put on it is as important as what we eat; maybe even more so.

Stellarcleenz are made of 99% pure silver and not Nano particle technology. They are made using an ionic technology in a bath process where pure silver is plated to fibers. It will not wash out. They contain no chemicals or toxins and not only are safe, they are portable and easy to stash anywhere. They are natural and have lasting re-usability making them more economical than many a squirt, pump of a spray, or swipe with a disposable sheet. And they are uniquely multi-purpose — discreet to use in social or business occasions (no more sweaty palms and reluctant clasps with new acquaintances); useable on surfaces and electronic devices; as well as on any parts of the body and skin.

Stellarcleenz have been laboratory tested for over 10,000 wipes without laundering and over 500 washes under scientific protocols without any reduction in the silver’s sanitizing effects. They don’t need to be regularly washed (bacteria does not grow on silver); some nonetheless chose to do more often. You can toss in a washing machine or simply put a dab of soap and rub under a faucet – just use mild soap no bleach in both cases). Stellarcleenz are also useable dry, damp or wet.

Bacteria, fungi and viruses are here to stay and you don’t have to be a germaphobe to be concerned about their potentially compromising effects to want to fend them off. Stellarcleenz provide a stellar solution.

…And When They Smile, You Smile…

They might be small, but feet are energy powerhouses. We neglect, abuse and strain them.  We cram them into poorly fitting shoes, often with ultra-high heels that throw our posture out of alignment and keep us from being grounded.

Yet, those feet just keep working.

Each foot has 28 bones.  Put them together and the two of them make up a quarter of all bones in the human body! Add the nerves, muscles, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels and you have one complex vertebral structure, and “the spine begins at the vertebrae,” said Barbara Cinque, LMT, New York City’s Oasis Day Spa, adding that “when your feet hurt, you can feel it all the way to the skull.”  She especially made note of aching knees, hips and calves and posture misalignments.

There’s nothing like a professional pedicure, but don’t ignore your feet between appointments.

Now, we hate to toot our own horn, but we have some pretty great things here. The pluggzSpa Revitalizing Foot Care System products are rich in botanicals, vitamins, nourishing butters and oils to treat over-worked feet. All are free of gluten, parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, synthetic colorants, synthetic fragrances and NEVER tested on animals.

Here are day-to-day ways to keep those vestiges vibrant.

  • Soap up! Most of us start the day with a shower, but how many forget to soap the feet? Washing your face perks you up, right? So why wouldn’t you do that for your feet?
  • Rejuvenate, re-energize, invigorate and boost circulation, with a series of sprays, moisturizers, potions and energizing creams—all from pluggz, of course.
  • Exfoliate: This gets rid of the dead skin, and that’s important because moisturizers and antioxidants can penetrate more easily.
  • Change your shoes, change your life. At pluggz, we say “comfort is the new sexy.” You don’t need heels or poorly fitting footwear. Read more here.
