Health Benefits of Earthing

“The Earth is a natural source of electrons and subtle electrical fields, which are essential for proper functioning of immune systems, circulation, synchronization of biorhythms and other physiological processes and may actually be the most effective, essential, least expensive, and easiest to attain antioxidant.” – Dr. Joseph Mercola

Have you ever heard about “earthing?” There is an emerging research investigating the relationship between contact with Earth and our health and well-being. 

I travel a lot by airplane and also spend many hours working at the computer. Despite an otherwise healthy lifestyle I sometimes feel “disconnected” from my own energy core. This happens very seldom, but when it does, no amount of sleep or relaxation seem to help.

Few weeks ago I had my eureka moment. I was in Florida over the weekend and I took an early morning walk on the beach. There were hardly any people on the beach. Only few joggers dared the early morning breeze. 

I took a very long walk, barefoot and enjoyed the way the sea water was playing with my feet. Everything was perfect. The sound of waves calmed my thoughts; the salty breeze nourished my lungs; the morning sun caressed my skin without burning it. It was a perfect morning that ended with a large bowl of freshly made fruit salad. 

The eureka moment came when I realized how energized I was after my walk. I love walking and walk whenever I have a chance, but I hardly ever walk barefoot. A two-hour walk on the beach did more for me than an eight hours of sleep in a super comfortable bed. 

The same thing happened a few days later when I walked barefoot in a Canning Fort Park in Singapore. The whole jet lag disappeared within minutes.

So, is the earthing effect real or imagined?

When you asked me, the effect was real. I didn't imagine things. The energy surge was very powerful and I wondered if this was how “earthing” really worked. 

Researchers believe that the electrons from the Earth have a powerful antioxidant effect on our bodies. Our immune system works best when our bodies have a constant supply of electrons. The easiest way to charge the body is to walk barefoot in grass, dirt, sand or even concrete, especially when they are wet. Moisture amplifies the conductivity. 

When we walk barefoot we are establishing a contact between Earth and the body. This allows a free flow of electrons. 

Researchers believe that earthing minimizes the consequences of exposure to potentially disruptive energy fields like electromagnetic smog or “dirty electricity” and may be especially beneficial to people who spent a lot of time working with computers or using electronic devices such as cellphones. 

Studies show that earthing improves blood viscosity, heart rate, stress hormone levels, inflammation, detoxification and sleep. 

For most part of their evolutionary existence humans were well connected to Earth. They slept on the ground, used natural building materials, natural fabrics and either walked barefoot or wore leather shoes. Rubber and plastic are relatively recent inventions. They are perfect insulators and prevent the flow of electrons between Earth and the human body. 

When you wear shoes with rubber soles you are completely disconnected from the Mother Earth. To re-establish the connection take off your shoes as often as you can and walk barefoot. I am certain, you will notice the difference in no time!

Juicing for Health and Beauty

If you are new to juicing you might be mesmerized by all the green juice talk in juice bars, in health magazines and all over the world wide web. So what is this green juice hype all about?

Green juices are probably the best food-based medicine we can give our bodies. They are particularly beneficial for all these people who:
  • have problems with their digestion
  • whose bodies are highly acidic
  • those who suffer from toxic overload
  • for those who need to lose weight
Juices are easily absorbed as the juicing process breaks down the cell walls of fruits and vegetable making them easier to digest. This means that the nutrients are getting directly into your system.

One very well known benefit of using green herbs and vegetable in juicing is the fact that they are rich in chlorophyll. Scientists discovered that hemoglobin in human blood and chlorophyll in green plants are almost identical. Just like our hemoglobin chlorophyll contains carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen. The only chemical difference in the organic construction of the chlorophyll in plants and  in blood is that the former contains magnesium while the latter contains iron.

A research in Germany demonstrated that chlorophyll helped reduce high blood pressure, eliminated anemia, made weak men strong, cured digestive troubles, and seemed to be  a potion of youth.

Once in the digestive system, chlorophyll immediately enriches the blood. The red blood cells increase considerably in number while their haemoglobin content rises. The blood circulation improves and more nutrients and oxygen are transported to tissues and organs. At the same time more toxins are neutralized and removed. The blood is enriched and reinforced with new life. No wonder, then, that those who consume considerable amounts of chlorophyll-rich foods are not only reporting recovery from chronic diseases and ailments, but also more energy, stamina and radiance that they have not experienced for a long time, if ever at all.  

Best fruit and vegetable combination for a nutritious alkalizing green juice:
  • cucumber, celery, cilantro
  • lime, celery, cucumber, cilantro
  • cucumber, celery, fennel
  • aloe vera leaves, green apples, lemon balm
  • green apple, celery  
  • green apple, pear, cucumber
  • celery, bell pepper, cucumber
  • pear, mint, cucumber
  • cucumber, fennel, celery, green chili pepper, cilantro
  • cucumber, parsley, bell pepper
  • apple, kiwi, cucumber
  • honey dew, celery
  • bell pepper, green chili pepper, cucumber
  • spinach, green apple, cucumber
  • kale, celery, cucumber
  • dill, apple, cucumber
  • orange, kale, cucumber
These are only few suggestions. You can start from here. Experiment with green herbs and veggies; add limes or lemons. Add ginger. The taste will change when you change the proportions of your ingredients, but the alkalizing and detoxifying action will remain unchanged.

I prefer to make pure vegetable juices, but some people love to add a little sweetness of a fruit. I rather add herbs. And I always add a pinch of Celtic salt and few drops of virgin olive oil to activate the bile flow.

If you are planning a detox or a weight loss program, early spring is a perfect time to begin. Start slowly and gradually increase the amount of green, alkalizing foods. Consult your healthcare provider if you have serious health issues.

Man's Health - Solution For Longer, Healthier, Sexier Life

How to Increase Physical Stamina, Decrease Body Fat, And Feel Younger at Any Age

Do you want to live longer? Feel better? Or maybe even squeeze some sex into your senior years? The solution may be locked in three words: orange, green, Provacyl.

Orange and green refer to the colors of the fruits and vegetables you should be eating. Provacyl is the revolutionary human growth hormone (HGH) releaser that addresses decreased hormone production in men as they get older. This process is called andropause, and if you like awesome sex and feeling like you're lean and mean, it sucks. But not to worry, we'll get to that later. Let's go a little deeper into orange and green, and how they'll prolong your life. After all, you can't enjoy sex if you're not around to have it in the first place!

Fruits and vegetables that are orange and green are rich in alpha-carotene. Recent studies have linked high blood levels of alpha-carotene to reduced risk of cancers, heart disease and Alzheimer's. Fruits and vegetables are generally rich in nutrients that help your body fight free radicals that cause damage to the DNA. 

People whose diet is rich in fruits and vegetables live longer and healthier lives. In a 14 year study, recently published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, researchers studied the link between alpha-carotene blood levels and mortality in 15,318 adults aged 20 and older. Those with higher alpha-carotene levels had a 39% lower risk of dying from cancer, cardiovascular disease and similar killers of adults. 

The effect of alpha-carotene was particularly strong against cancers of the upper digestive tract (esophagus, larynx and pharynx), type 2 diabetes and lower respiratory disease. 

Researchers theorize that alpha-carotenes are better than beta-carotenes at blocking growth of cancer cells in the skin, brain and liver. 

They also discovered that yellow-orange and dark green vegetables are better at fighting lung cancer than all other vegetables. Sources of alpha-carotene include carrots, freshly made carrot juice, collard greens, pumpkin, colorful vegetable soups, freshly made vegetable juices and tangerines, to mention only few.  

Dieticians have long recommended eating five to seven servings of fruits and vegetables every day. One serving is the amount that fits into your folded hand or a handful.

Most North Americans don't come close to meeting this target. That's a shame, because the health benefits of fruits and vegetables are numerous, and with proper planning can easily be incorporated into your daily menu.

You can add berries to breakfast, for example, as a smoothie or with cereal. Tangerines, baby carrots and apples make great snacks between meals. You can also add spinach leaves, grated carrots or a sliced tomato to your sandwich for lunch. Grab a salad and drink freshly made vegetable juice instead of coke.

With dinner, use at least two different vegetables. Use romaine and dark-green leafy greens instead of iceberg lettuce in salads, as they are higher in carotenoids. Try sweet potato, instead of white potato. Sweet potato is rich in alpha- and beta-carotenes and is substantially higher in nutritional value. It also helps you balance your blood sugar. 

Eat fruits and vegetables with half to one teaspoon of healthy fat such as cold pressed olive oil. This increases the absorption of fat-soluble nutrients. Fat is also necessary for the proper cognitive function.

You can enhance your life further with Provacyl, one of the most effective human growth hormone (HGH) releasers on the market. 

Provacyl was specially created for aging men. Is it's an all-natural supplement that provides amino acids and herbal extracts that were used since ancient times to boost hormone production. 

Users of Provacyl reported
  • reduced excess body fat
  • increased lean muscle mass
  • increased stamina
  • increased physical endurance 
  • increased libido
  • improved sexual performance
  • feelings of well-being and positive life outlook

Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, Provacyl has no side effects and doesn't require a trip to a doctor. Think of it as a daily supplement to be incorporated into your improved and healthy alpha-carotene rich diet. 

Healthier diet and proper supplementation will help you stay active and live a much healthier, sexier, longer life.
