Wearing tor rings is an ages-long tradition which has now become a fashion statement. Initially, it was just the married women who would wear it but today, they are worn by unmarried women as well who simply love the look of it considering there are so many design options available today from typical Indian motifs to simple rings to enameled designs. But did you know that there are scientific and Ayurvedic health benefits of wearing them as well?
It is said that as per Ayurveda, wearing a toe ring is connected to acupressure. The point of wearing it is that it clears blockages from the person's acupressure points.
A theory says that you can treat gynecological issues by massaging the second toe, where we wear the toe ring. The jewellery piece hits the specific nerves which are said to help in keeping the reproductive system in check.
As per beliefs, it also great for regulating the menstrual cycle. There is a nerve that goes from the second finger to the toe which is said to pass through the heart and connects our uterus. Generally, a silver toe ring is recommended as it is said to absorb energy which is produced from the earth as well as the body and helps in unifying the system in our body.
It is also said that wearing toe rings also helps women in conceiving as it balances the uterus and a woman's menstrual cycle. Another belief is that this practice of wearing toe rings also means that the child born will be conceived from love.
