Episode 073

Could wearing shoes be the biggest cause of back and posture problems?

Our guests are Doctor Abraham Wagner (Dr ToeJam) and Jeff Shub (TheUrbanBarefoot) of JAWS podiatry - a foot and ankle practice specializing in preventative podiatry. Their YouTube channel is known for viral videos on ingrown toenails. They are the only preventative podiatry clinic in South Florida.

As the barefoot movement begins to sweep America, Dr Wagner and Jeff are at the forefront of preventative podiatry - helping clients be proactive in the care of their feet and ankles before any issues arise. Walking barefoot, also known as "earthing," has gone from being a kooky counter-culture trend, to a scientifically-researched practice with a number of remarkable health advantages, such as increasing antioxidants, reducing inflammation, improving sleep, and of course, solving hip and back problems.

Dr. Wagner and Jeff take us on a journey from the history of shoes and feet to some new techniques they are working on to heal their patients. We also scan through some incredible new products on the market for feet (see notes below)
