Sickness for Walking Barefoot
In fact the cold from the floor can still go through your socks and into your foot, and cause you sickness. Read on to find out more about why.
Some people complain of getting a sore throat, or swelling of the throat (lymph nodes) in the winter months, but never really develop any cold or flu. This is a kind of borderline sickness, where the immune system can't really kick in and get rid of the cold or illness, but you don't succumb to it anyways..
While this tendency to sore throat or malaise may not be true for everyone, if a person does not have a hearty constitution they may be more susceptible than others.
It is never advisable to get used to walking barefoot on a cold floor period. Wear good socks. Wear shoes, slippers, but thick slippers, not cloth slippers.
So, what is the reason for a person walking on a cold floor, even with socks greatly increasing their tendency to get sick.
The reason, a very simple one is answered from the point view of TCM - Traditional Chinese Medicine, and the acupuncture meridians.
In the summer time, it may be more appropriate to walk barefoot, inside and out of the house, but if you can't tolerate the cold going up into the kidneys, you should not do this at all, especially if you have a prolonged cold.
