Inflammation & Pain

Category: Healing Touch
Posted: 2010-07-16 12:57

Stop for a moment.
Reflect.
Can you recall what it feels like to stand barefoot on warm, soft grass or sand?

Most of us feel good when we’re in barefoot contact with the earth. Why is that?

When you make direct contact with the earth, you become electrically grounded. A layer of free electrons covers the earth and when you walk barefoot on the grass or the beach, it gives you a peaceful feeling and a sense of being grounded. Even if you are doing something else and not specifically paying attention to it, the effect on your body is the same = our bodies become charged with free electrons when we’re in direct contact with the earth.

So what does this have to do with inflammation?

Here is a bit of science: the free electrons, which have a negative charge, neutralize free radicals, which are positively charged. A free radical is a charged molecule that is missing an electron. Because we loose touch with the earth in our modern lives, these free radicals continuously build up in our bodies.

Inflammation, oxidative stress, and free radical damage all involve the same thing: free radicals! These positively charged particles cause damage by stripping electrons from healthy tissue. When we are in barefoot contact with the earth, billions of free electrons enter our bodies every second = free radicals are neutralized and so is inflammation. The earth’s infinite supply of free electrons is probably the most powerful antioxidants source in existence!

Since inflammation is directly related to to pain and illness, it is good medicine to take a barefoot walk as often as you can and bring healing from the OutsideIN!

Candida Albicans Help

Category: Food & Your Health
Posted: 2010-05-12 17:17

Decades ago I suffered from a severe imbalance of candida albicans. I lived with food cravings and mood swings, phantom aches, and too often a sore throat. In the 1980's, no one had heard about candida albicans and the book The Yeast Connection was finally out in print.

I was fortunate to find a nutrutionist who was begining to study candida albicans with a professor at McGill University in Montreal (Canada). I became part of their early trials as they evaluated their hypotheses.

Food played a major part in getting healthy. Six months of a very strict elimination diet was not easy but my efforts paid off.

Today I found a website that excellently describes the food side and other considerations.

It is my delight to share it with you!
