Spring Time has Arrived!

First Signs of Spring! 001

 

Spring is arriving beautifully in the South and I’m itching to get outside! As a kid I remember so well the days warming up after a long cold snowy winter! I am originally from a tiny town in Kentucky that set on the Ohio River in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. When spring came, we couldn’t wait to kick our shoes off and go barefoot! After pleading with our Mom, she would finally let us go outside with our bare feet! I remember the sensation of stepping into the lush green prickly cool grass and dirt! What a wonderful experience!

It amazes me that something that gave us so much pleasure as a child now has been found to have been good for us all along, regardless of the many arguments that “we would catch our death of cold!” We obviously never knew about the great benefits!   According to some emerging research from various health professionals going barefoot termed Earthing or Grounding is actually a healthy practice and could have many benefits such as the following:

Reducing inflammation by defusing excess positive electrons

Reducing chronic pain

Improving Sleep (I can vouch strongly for this!)

Increasing Energy (I noticed this also)

Lowering stress and promoting calmness by reducing stress hormones.

Normalizing biological rhythms including circadian rhythm

Improving blood pressure and blood flow

Relieving muscle tension and headache (I noticed this)

Lessens menstrual and female hormone symptoms

Speeds healing- used in some places to prevent bed sores

Can eliminate jet lag

Protecting the body from EMFs

Shortens recovery time from injury or athletic activity

Reducing or eliminating snoring

Helping support adrenal health

 

In the light of dirt and the earth being found to have relative health benefits,   I wanted to pass this wonderful cutting edge resource from Dr. Joshua Axe entitled Eat Dirt!  along to all who may be suffering in their health!   I have found many helpful resources written or produced by Dr. Axe and have taken his advice to help with health issues for my own family.
