Feet are our Foundations with Natural Podiatrist Andy Bryant

Show notes

Andy Bryant is a natural podiatrist who is committed to an approach to foot health which addresses mobility and strength deficits in conjunction with footwear that mimics how we move naturally, barefoot.

Some points Andy and Gabby covered:

  • How the state of our feet affects our ankles, knees, hips, and everything else upstream

  • The importance of the big toe in humans, and why it is crucial to the way the rest of our body moves, including issues that can occur when the blood flow to the foot is impaired with a big toe that is pushed sideways 

  • The factors which may predispose susceptible individuals to bunions, and how they can be improved or prevented

  • The cultural identity of heeled shoes and how this can be considered a kind of “western foot-binding” 

  • How the running boom in the 60’s and 70’s influenced running culture and the design of athletic footwear

  • The role feet play in sensing what’s going on beneath us 

  • Andy’s top tips for starting your journey towards having more functional feet
