I have conducted some in-depth research, some might call it wasted time. However, I call it amazing! If what I have discovered is correct then it is going to help a lot of people come to terms with their situation and make the pain worthwhile. Not that any pain is worth enduring for any amount of money, but wait until you see where I am coming from with this discovery before slamming it. Because what I have discovered here is just amazing! I am going to show you how success and painful feet are linked!
What am I getting at here? Well, first take your shoe and sock off from one of your feet, look at that bare foot; now zone in on the second toe of that foot (the one next to your big toe). Now take a close look at it. Is it freakishly longer than your big toe? If it is longer, read on. If it is not longer then there is no need to read the rest of this, as you may just put it down to probably, etc so no drama.
Right, for the rest of you with that large second toe, you have something that is called “Morton’s Foot Syndrome”, also known as Greek Foot, Royal Toe or Morton’s Toe (thought to occur in about 15-20% of the world’s population). But feel blessed, because ancient Greeks considered Morton’s toe to be a sign of beauty. Even the statue of liberty has Morton’s toe … really! But please read on, as I haven’t quite finished explaining about the joy of having such a malady!
You most likely experience excruciating foot pain, especially if you spend a lot of time on your feet. The reason for all of this pain is due to how the second toe protrudes when you walk, all of the pressure is taken by that second toe when, in fact, it is meant to be taken by the big toe when you push off.
Your problem is how the second metatarsal bone that attaches to the second toe is longer than the metatarsal bone that connects to the big toe. Thus all of the pressure goes straight into the ball of your foot, particularly when you push off each foot when walking, as this is how we walk. Because the big toe no longer does what it is designed for then you will suffer huge problems.
Some say that when the toe next to the big toe is longer than the big toe it's a sign of high intelligence, but I am sure you knew that anyway!! But I still haven’t reached the magnificent news you want to hear!
Don’t get me wrong, I certainly do not have a foot fetish. But over the years I wanted to find out why some people had so much pain in their feet, while others experienced zero foot pain. That’s when I discovered Morton’s toe. So during some of my Cosmic Ordering workshops I ran in the past I would ask to see the bare foot of some of my delegates, and no … it was not some bizarre initiation ceremony! I just wanted to see if they had a longer second toe than their big first toe. And guess what, every single one I asked to look had Morton’s toe!
I mean, these delegates were on my course in order to secure success, they were success-minded people. I was starting to discover that successful people are more than likely to have Morton’s toe. I am not saying that they had success simply as a reward for the pain they were going through, I am just extrapolating on my findings.
Also, Morton's toe is said to reveal you have immense forethought but can be overconfident and enjoys to be seen to be in charge (some say the person would be the boss of the family). However your endowment of having Morton’s toe lies with being able to inspire confidence in others. Another prevalent notion is that people of Celtic origins have a longer second toe. Others declare that you are descended from Royalty if your second toe is longer.
From my own research I have discovered there are quite a few celebrities with Morton’s toe and as far as I can determine from photographic and documented evidence they may well include: Katie Holms, Keira Knightley, Shilpa Shetty, Jennifer Garner, Naomi Campbell, Princess Kate Middleton, Keri Hilson, Iman, Serena Williams, Sarah Jessica Parker, Paris Hilton, Victoria Beckham, Renee Zellweger, Christina Hendricks, Pamela Anderson, Kim Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Lara Spencer, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, Jessica Alba, Maria Menounos, Ashley Lilley, Shannon Elizabeth, Carmen Electra, Charlize Theron, Jessica Simpson, Nicolette Sheridan, Reese Witherspoon, Emma Bunton, Eva Mendes, Anne Hathaway, Angelina Jolie, Ashley Olsen, Sharon Stone, Rashida Jones, Carrie Underwood, Paula Abdul, Selena Gomez, Jamie Chung, Laura Croft, Gisele Bundchen, Allison Munn, Drew Barrymore, Keri Hilson, Serena Williams, President Kennedy, Michael Phelps, Gov Sarah Palin.
So after reading that, I am sure Morton’s toe is a condition you can live with, although it could cause, aches and pains all over the body including back, hip, knee, leg foot and ankles problems. Also, it could be the real cause of not only the problems listed above but also of fibromyalgia and sleep disturbances. The prevalence of Morton's toe is thought to be responsible for well over 80% of people suffering from musculoskeletal pain.
