Only after the last tree has been cut down;
Only after the last fish has been caught;
Only after the last river has been poisoned;
Only then will you realize that money cannot be eaten.

Effect of Using Heel Pillows

© by Forest Ang

......Experience has shown me that heel pillows help your knees......

pack of heel pillows heel pillows

Not many people want to believe that heel pillows help to alleviate knees pain. I know a doctor who also disagree with me.

Shoes are sometime designed by people who don't walk! Shoes manufacturers are interested in profit. I guess only 1% of the shoes in the market that has gone through R&D.

The inability for some manufacturers to recognise fault and inadequacy caused bad construction of shoes.

The indigenous people of Malaysia do not wear shoes in the jungle. They have thick heels. Our heels are the natural shock absorbers.

We stay in the city. We have been using shoes since birth. Our heels were so used to soft cushioning of our insoles. The impact of our body weight are distributed unevenly.

For low heel shoes, our body weight is forced directly on the heels. The weight is not distributed evenly to the soles. Through wear and tear, the natural heels could not absorb the full impact of the weight. Thus, it succumbed to the weight and the pressure exert upward. The joints became the target. The joints unable to absorb the enormous pressure, eventually wear off to cause pain.

When buying shoes, check that the heels are slightly higher than the soles. If not, then use the padded heel pillows to compensate for the absent.

The combination of the insoles and heel pillows provide extra shock absorbing and cushioning. Used without fail and your knees and joints will never fail you again while exploring. Don't wait until you have pain to start using it..... it will be too late then...!

Take care!
