Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?
by: Stephen Sinatra, M.D., F.A.C.C.

Throughout practically all of history, we humans have walked barefoot and slept on the ground, largely oblivious to the fact that the gentle surface energies of the Earth harmonize and stabilize the body’s fundamental biological rhythms and keep inflammation at bay.

In our contemporary Western world, the widespread use of insulative rubber or plastic soled shoes has disconnected us from these nurturing energies and, of course, we no longer sleep on the ground as we did in times past.

New research, which I am proud to be involved in, indicates that this physical disconnect from the Earth creates abnormalities in the physiology and contributes to the chronic inflammation, pain, fatigue, stress, and poor sleep that are so rampant in our modern society.

Along with the research has emerged an amazingly simple remedy for many health problems, including the chronic inflammation regarded as the cause of most common modern diseases, including cardiovascular disease.  The remedy is something right beneath our feet – the Earth itself!

The Greatest Health Discovery in My Career
During my nearly forty years as a practicing cardiologist, I have encountered and used many wonderful natural treatments and seen first-hand astounding lifesaving technological advances. The greatest health discovery of my career, however, is something totally different and more natural than anything I could ever have imagined.

This discovery is called Earthing and it means reconnecting the human body to the Earth’s natural and subtle electric frequencies that few people even know exist. The surface of the planet, science tells us, brims with health-sustaining energy, but until recently the extraordinary benefits that it offers were basically unknown.

Ending Inflammation

What can I do about inflammation?

Inflammation could be caused by many factors, therein lies the challenge of knowing what is causing such inflammation. Fixing the problem at it’s root is much better than masking it.

Topically:

  • Emu oil (comment: I have not tried this)
  • copper peptides
  • ketoconazole can be used to topically partially inhibit cytokine formation.
  • Essential oils (comment: easy to apply)
  • Anything that kills scalp parasites can help reduce localized scalp inflammation
  • ACV (comment: good)
  • Kefir (comment: tried it, works but messy)
  • Xylitol (comment: I have not tried)

Diet:

  • Ecklonia Cava Extract (rich in phlorotannins/polyphenols with uniquely strong antioxidant properties)
  • Curcumin 95% (95% curcuminoids including curcumin, demethoxycurcumin and bisdemethoxycurcumin, which are antioxidants)
  • Krill Oil
  • R-Lipoic Acid (anti Oxidant)
  • Fish oil
  • DHEA
  • Stinging Nettle extract
  • GLA
  • Other antioxidants (vitamin E and N-acetyl cysteine)

Read the anti-inflammatory diets posted on this website. This website has a few anti inflammatory diets and diet recommendations. To find them visit:

You should consider finding food sensitivities that you have that might be sub-clinical. These could be causing chronic inflammation that you have grown accustomed to. The best way to find foods that don’t sit well with you is to go on the elimination diet then slowly reintroduce one food item at a time. You may enjoy the benefits of eliminating foods enough to not even care to re-introduce some items.

Grounding or Earthing and Holistic Health

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

GroundingHow I learned of grounding:

I always had a connection (felt connected) to nature and our planet, once this connection was compromised I experienced dis-ease. I know this from personal experience.

In my quest to reverse my male pattern baldness, improve my vision and heal decaying teeth I researched many diets and theories, trying to figure out what the right thing to eat was, more accurately what my body evolved to eat.

I learned of great concepts such as paleolithic dieting and metabolic typing. Dr. Weston Price, like many others, also figured it was all in the diet, that natives and uncivilized people had great teeth (and hair) due to their diet.

One morning as I continued to research the correct genetic type of foods for me, I had a very simple idea sprout from my mind and catch my attention, “it’s not all in the diet”. While diet is a major factor of the body’s health, I believe looking at diets, supplements and chemicals only for an answer misses 1/2 the reality.

Yes the paleolithic humans ate differently, yes the uncivilized white-teethed tribes ate differently. Some ate raw foods, some ate a vegetarian diet of roots and fruits, some drank raw milk, others ate mostly sea food or meat. Finding commonalities in these diets has been the obsession of many researchers and remains an interest of mine; the same with metabolic typing. One convincing answer that explains why different diets had similar results in natives is that these people ate what was right for their metabolic type.

Keeping that in mind, I sifted through facts and theories on ancient and uncivilized diets, then I noticed something that was even more in common between these ancient people, besides how different their diets were than the typical SAD (Standard American Diet). they all were barefoot (or used thin leather sandals), sat on rocks or the ground, climbed trees, swam, and got a lot of sunshine. These people were more “grounded” than us today. I cannot comment on their spirituality, life habits, culture, mind-set, or rituals but I know they were grounded, got a lot of sun and plenty of functional physical activity.

I theorize that it was not just the diet that made our ancestors healthy, it also must have been their lifestyle: especially grounding activities, functional paleo-type physical activity, and plenty of sunshine. This is not to discount diet, diet is a huge part of health, but not the answer-to-all solution to a holistic whole health.
