And if up until now, you haven’t followed this desi nuskha, then we are going to ensure that you do it for sure, because it turns out that walking barefoot on grass has the power to heal.

The essence of this technique lies in naturopathy. In this technique, nature and its properties are used to heal the person. According to naturopathy, everything has its own energy. When you combine two forces that complement each other, it leads to healing. 

As per a study published in the Journal of Environment and Public Health, the health of people today is at an all-time low, because they are disconnected with the environment and earth. The study also suggests that reconnecting with the earth’s electrons has been found to promote intriguing physiological changes, as well as well-being.

Apart from that, when you walk barefoot, then the principles of reflexology work. The point is that your soles are pressed harder, due to which the functioning of your organs gets regulated.

But there’s more to it.

Here are five spectacular benefits of walking barefoot on grass
1. Helps in preventing insomnia
