Do what the Bushmen in Africa have done for years.
This method of obtaining optimal health is so simple you may discard the idea at first.
But don’t, because the simplest things are often the best.
We all know that just being in nature can be very healing.
It’s why I go to Africa, the place for an ultimate nature fix, and blog about how we can all get more Africa inside of us.
We also know our bodies are full of free radicals from heavy metals, air pollution, chemicals, trans- fats.
We take antioxidants, remove the mercury from our teeth, eat organic… all in an effort to fight those disease causing free-radicals.
The earth is full of negative ions. And guess what negative ions are good for? Yep, fighting free radicals.
The earth’s negative ions are available for free, for the benefit of keeping us in optimal health.
So, how do we get more of what the earth has in abundance to heal us?
How do we soak up those negative ions?
What we have to do to get enough of them for optimal healing is something the bushmen in Africa, and
other indigenous tribal people, have done naturally for eons: touch the earth.
But in a specific way.
The Naked TruthWe need direct, naked, bare skin contact with the ground.
I’m sure you can imagine all sorts of ways to do this, but the simplest is to take your shoes OFF.
It turns out that our feet will soak up zillions of negative ions if we just give them the chance.
There is a newish movement called Earthing, with lots of scientific studies, to confirm what I’m telling you.
But all I needed to do was try it.
As I write this, I’m sitting in my garden on a chair with my bare feet
touching the damp ground (wet earth is better for conductivity).
It feels SOOOO GOOD.
So be like the bushmen: walk barefoot. At the beach, at the park, or around your garden.
Lying on the ground works too. Afterwards, let me know how you feel.
