Episode 12 Dr. Emily Splichal Author of "Barefoot Strong" and Leader in Human Movement

Wild Golf

Welcome to this episode of The Wild Golf Podcast.  Our guest today is podiatrist and human movement specialist Dr. Emily Splichal.  She is the author of "Barefoot Strong" and is the founder of Naboso; the first company to make proprioceptive insoles and mats designed to stimulate the nervous system and enhance movement.  She believes that our experience in this world is built around sensory stimulation and our ability to process, perceive, and integrate this information effectively. Your feet play a central role in this process.  Golf is a sensory sport that requires balance and spatial awareness as does moving well into old age.  But in golf and in life, we have cut off our connection to the ground with cushioned shoes and socks.  We hope you enjoy this episode and hope that Emily will set you on your own path to becoming barefoot strong.You can find out more about Emily and her ground breaking work see below: https://www.dremilysplichal.comhttps://barefootstrongblog.com/https://ebfaglobal.teachable.com/On Youtube:  EBFAFitness On Twitter:   @Doctor_LegsOn Instagram: @dremilydpmIf you like this episode, please tell your friends and leave a review.  Please also follow us on Instagram and Twitter.http://instagram.com/wild_golf_podcasthttps://twitter.com/wildgolfpodcast

098 | Dr. Emily Splichal - A Podiatrist’s Sensory-Secret to Less Pain and Higher Performance

Stacked with Joe DiStefano

In this super-informative episode, I’m joined by Dr. Emily Splichal. Dr. Emily is a podiatrist, a human movement specialist, and the founder of Naboso, a company whose proprioceptive insoles, yoga mats, and mobility balls are specifically designed to stimulate the hypersensitive nerves in the feet. As an expert in barefoot training and sensory movement, Emily’s mission is to help people move better and feel healthier by optimizing movement from the feet up.During our conversation, she explains how Naboso’s proprioceptive surfaces facilitate correct movement patterns and she describes how to build strength and stability in the feet. We also dive deep into the mind-body connection, examine the complex and little-known link between the emotions and the myofascial system, and explore the benefits of being barefoot. As a podiatrist, Dr. Emily recommends going barefoot wherever possible, choosing natural minimalist shoes over conventional footwear, and strengthening the feet with exercises rather than simply relying on orthotics.Proudly Sponsored By: Ancestral SupplementsTraditional peoples, the kind that would have been barefoot most of the time, out in the sun, moving all day, and doing ALL the things we biohackers are trying endlessly to figure out and find a way to PUT BACK into our modern existence, sensed intuitively, that eating the organs from a healthy animal would strengthen and support the health and longevity of them, their children, and their elders. In fact, they believed that like-supported-like and the eating fresh organs also corresponded to strengthen those organs of the individual. For instance, the traditional way of treating a person with a weak heart was to feed the person the heart of a healthy animal. Is it any surprise that HEART is the richest source of Co-Enzyme Q10, in a far more bioavailable form than those capsules in your kitchen cabinet? Similarly, eating the kidneys of a healthy animal was believed to support urinary ailments and overall kidney health... The pancreas was fed to people with digestive problems... and the spleen was fed to people with immune and blood deficiencies. And the list goes on. Our early ancestors KNEW these truths, which is why their traditional diets included the frequent and nourishing consumption of nose-to-tail organs that today are almost void from the diet.So please visit my good friends over at Ancestral Supplements at coachjoedi.com/ancestral to see what they can do for you - and put back in, what the modern world has left out! SaunaSpaceHundreds of studies now show sauna therapy to be one of the most effective ways to free yourself from the toxicity of modern living and extend your life and now that not many of us have space for a large, wood-burning Finnish barrel in our yard, SaunaSpace offers the only truly EMF-free sauna experience AND has pioneered the model I got with external EMF protection as well called, The Faraday.I have not looked back and have enjoyed my SaunaSpace sauna literally everyday since I got it, Emilia loves it too.
