Have you heard of Juil? They are an amazing shoe company that work off the grounding technology. Not sure what that is? Here is some info:
Juil earthing shoes cleanse your body of stress and toxins in the form of free radicals.
The benefit is simple – you feel better.
You know that calming feeling when you’re walking barefoot in the sand or grass? Well, there’s some science behind it.
The short version – Studies have shown that maintaining a direct connection between our bodies and the Earth’s surface is beneficial to our health.
The long version – In our everyday lives, we’re exposed to toxins and stress. Toxins include anything from breathing polluted air, to carrying our cell phones around. Stress can come from anywhere – work, school, friends, or family. Exposure to these stresses and toxins leads to a buildup of free radicals in our bodies. These free radicals attack healthy cells and cause inflammation which, oh, by the way, is the root of almost all medical ailments. Fortunately, we have the Earth, a giant magnet with endless supply of electrons. If we stay connected, these electrons are absorbed to neutralize and release the harmful free radicals from our bodies.
Why do I need to get connected to the earth?
“Free radicals” occur in our bodies when we are exposed to toxins, pesticides, and generally anything that is toxic to our tissue (now-a-days, it’s more things than not). Over time, free radicals build up in our bodies. In order for them to become stable, the radicals must find an electron to “connect” themselves to. Where are these electrons then? Beyond the sources found in certain foods, vitamins, etc., we have an abundant source of electrons right beneath us in the earth. If we fail to connect ourselves with these sources, radicals attack our healthy tissue to rob the cells of their electrons. The result? A high potential for infection and inflammation, among other ailments.

How will connecting to the earth help me?
Over time, factors such as stress, man-made electromagnetic fields, toxins, infections and poor diets can contribute to chronic inflammation, which is known to contribute to many types of chronic disease. Inflammation and the free radicals it creates can be partially quenched by fruits, vegetables and other nutrients in a healthy diet. But what else can we do to help ourselves? Well, it turns out that our earth’s surface carries a natural, bountiful source of electrons that our bodies also need. These electrons have a balancing effect on our nervous systems and quench free radicals as well. Essentially, when we connect directly with the earth’s surface, electrons rising from its soil or sand will enter our bodies and turn the “negatives” we build up day-to-day into “positives.”

How does Juil help me make this connection?
While the easiest way to stay grounded is to walk barefoot, that’s not always possible, fashionable, or appropriate. Most footwear insulates your body from maing a connection with the earth, but the copper “dots” in Juil earthing shoes act as a conduit and allow you to stay truly connected and balanced.
Connect to the power of the earth beneath your feet to balance the weight of the world on your shoulders.
I received a pair of white Mojanda for an honest review. These sandals are so cute! They are also very comfortable. These will quickly become one of my favorite shoes. I could feel a difference in my legs and feet as soon as I put these on. I have a bad back and arthritis. My legs/feet always hurt. They always have tension in them. These shoes too care of that immediately. The fact that they are super cute doesn’t hurt as well.
Here are a few pictures of the shoes I received. As you can see from the second picture, I was to anxious to try them on I didn’t bother to take the tag off them. 🙂
