Down To Earth;

We are all hearing about the Grounding word. When you are grounding you are contacting with Earth. When your body is in direct contact with the earth, without a barrier like shoes or carpet, you’re earthing.

We don’t think too much about grounding, I remember back in the day my Grandmother saying take your shoes off and walk in the yard, so you don’t get sick.

 I didn’t quite understand it back in the day, but it was helping my joint pain since I got diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis when I was 7 years old.

Some of the science-based benefits of grounding include:  Neutralizes free radicals, reduces inflammation, stress, improves sleep and reduces inflammation and pain.

The earth naturally has an endless supply of negative electrons that pulse out in a pattern. Electrons are key so if grounding is difficult, you could try alkaline water. Electrons are absorbing through your feet, it’s like taking a hand full of antioxidants. The electrons undergo a series of reactions as they are transferred from one protein to another in an electron transport chain.

The best way to ground yourself is to go outside in the dirt or sand barefoot.

We should stop poisoning the environment we live in and breathe on. There are better and natural methods out there.

Weeds (dandelions, plantain, cleavers, etc.) are such a beneficial factor to our environment and health. I would say no to chemicals. My request is that we should all research on fertilization, pesticides, herbicides, and fungicides. We shouldn’t trust the labels. Do your research in Clemson Extension and read about your area. Clemson Extension helps improve the quality of life in Agricultural services. 

I pray that everyone will one day realize all of mother nature’s beautiful healing gifts to humanity.


Healthy Tips:

        Putting onions on your feet, pull the toxins from your body. It works wonders for colds, fevers, and much more. I remember when I was a little girl, my grandmother used to cut an onion in half and place the cut part directly on the bottom of her feet. Then she would put socks on to help keep it there and go to sleep.

        You may use mixture below on weeds in the flower beds.

           1 gal. vinegar, 2 cup Epsom salt, ¼ cup dish detergent
