Do you walk around in bare feet all day? Are your feet always chilly? Although it feels great to let your feet breathe, a cold foot means reduced blood flow to your ovaries and uterus.
Acupuncture channels flow from your feet up your legs and circulate to your reproductive organs. Cold constricts blood flow thereby slowing down necessary circulation for healthy ovulation and menstruation. Cold reproductive organs exacerbate PCOS, irregular cycles, endometriosis, and other reproductive health problems.
Enjoy some barefoot time in the summer, but don’t let them stay too cold for too long! Avoid walking on cold surfaces like tile without socks. Try a hot foot soak to warm them up at the end of the day. Be especially conscious of keeping them warm around the time of ovulation through menstruation. Keep your footsies warm!
