Nail bed practice in the bathroom.

Nail bed practice, or standing on nails, is one of the many methods of alternative medicine that involves the belief that standing on nails can bring health benefits. This method has its roots in ancient traditions and is practiced in various cultures around the world. Although there is limited scientific evidence regarding its effectiveness in terms of medical benefits, some people argue that standing on nails may have the following advantages for the body:

  1. Stimulating blood circulation: When a person stands on nails, the pressure points on the soles of the feet can stimulate blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, which in turn can improve blood flow and the elimination of toxins from the body.
  2. Activating biological points: According to acupuncture and Ayurvedic theories, different points on the soles of the feet are linked to different organs and systems in the body. Standing on nails can activate these points and stimulate the functioning of the corresponding organs.
  3. Reducing stress and tension: Some people argue that standing on nails can help reduce stress, improve sleep, and overall well-being by stimulating points on the soles of the feet that are associated with relaxation and mood improvement.
  4. Strengthening immunity: Although there is no direct link between standing on nails and strengthening immunity, some proponents of this practice claim that regular performance of this procedure can contribute to overall health improvement and therefore increase the body's resistance to diseases.

However, it is important to understand that standing on nails is not a recognized treatment method in official medicine. Those interested in this practice are advised to discuss with a qualified medical professional, especially if they have medical issues or are taking medication, to avoid potential risks and side effects.
