Reflexology is a form of ancient Chinese medicine involving treatment by massage of reflex areas in the feet. Every part of the feet corresponds to a part of the body with the left foot representing the left side of the body and the right foot, the right side. An imaginary line halfway down the foot corresponds to the waistline, with organs in the upper part of the body having their reflex areas in the upper part of the foot and the organs in the lower part of the body, in the lower part. Thus, the reflexes of the feet are arranged to form a map of the body.

I amputated my left big toe due to a severe lawnmower accident. The reflexology map of the foot illustrates that the big toe, for example, is considered a reflex area for the head. I lost my left big toe. Some people think that I might have lost my mind because of my obessive compulsive drive to create yard safety awareness. I might have lost part of my mind. Actually, for a few months after my big toe amputation, there was sometimes a disconnect with my ability to think - including my memory. Nonetheless, I have not lost my will to find a cure for yard accidents and to create awareness so that other individuals and families do not have to endure such a traumatic experience.

I will continue to monitor the mind-body connection between my left big toe stump site and my left brain. Also, I will check to see if my right brain has advanced since my right big toe is now compensating for the lack of my left big toe. Indeed, I am fascinated by this ironic phenomenon between the big toe (lack of big toe) and the brain.
