Toe Walking Midfoot Walking?

I have been reading much about the different walking techniques people are doing. Some athletes are tip toe running/walking and they found that it increases endurance/ performance.

A research article came out and stated that we actually should be walking more on our arch and that it should actually come down and touch the floor.

Each one of these arguments is the extreme.

If you try running on tip toes, it does seem to be faster for a quick burst of speed- but that is not how we walk.

Arch walking it difficult if not hard to do nowadays on concrete- we have adapted to that. Have you seen our feet in sand prints? No arch- when someone has a biomechanical issue or they are overweight then you see the arch fall flat the muscles which keep it up get pushed down.

When we walk, we actually start with the outside of our heel and then naturally go through the outside of our foot, it then goes diagonal through the midfoot and then through our big toe. That is why it is so big- to push us off.

When we toe walk/ run we bypass a lot of natural stages moving our foot through un-natural positions increasing pressures on areas which were not designed to have those pressures acted upon them.

Just my 2 cents.

Is It A Toenail Fungus?

Most toenail fungus treatments that are right for the patient, and that are actual treatments rather than bonkers methods (i.e. antibiotics and bleach) usual resolve the fungus from 3-6 months onwards. In other words, you can start to see it working.

Resolution usually occurs after 12 months. That is the outline for many treatments because the toenail grows at a really slow rate- nothing can increase that speed.

However if after 12 months of tablets or creams/ paints and still nothing occurs then you really have to ask yourself, is this really a toenail fungus?

When you look at a large proportion of patients with toenail fungus you actually find that many do not have toenail fungus...the treatments that they have been given were actually the wrong treatments, for the wrong thing.

I have created a simple ebook, that's free, that explains what you could have, what it looks like and how to treat it...you can get it from here: Free "It Might Not Be A Toenail Fungus" Ebook
