Welcome to my intermittent Blog. Most of what will show up here will be breaking news on my information radar and/or the latest recipes from Roger's "what's in the refrigerator" dishes.
The most exciting news I've come across lately is that you can enhance your health tremendously by making a more regular and direct connection with our home planet, Earth. Yes, it is that cheap, available, and simple. Going barefoot outside, especially on nice wet dewy earth, on stone, sand, and unpainted concrete, allows our body to collect negative ions that are plentiful on the earth's crust. These negative ions help to offset the oxidative processes that worsen inflammation. Yes, it's the biggest anti-oxidant known thus far to me, and you don't have to swallow a pill for it.
Ever since the mid 1900's most of us Americans have been wearing rubber-soled shoes. Rubber is not a good conductor. Before then, we either had leather-soled shoes, or went barefoot, and got to have this robust contact with these healing ions. Electrical creatures that we are, we thrive in the right bio-chemical environment.
Beware: wooden decks and painted cement don't work.
If you'd like to read more about this, go to www.mercola.com, and read or listen to the interview with Dr. James Oschman (just put "earthing" in the search box, and then look for Dr. Oschman interview). Or just go to the www.earthing.com
