  In medicine, we know it only takes three deep breaths to significantly support vagal nerve tone, which helps modulate your autonomic nervous system. Meaning your heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure and brain all get calmed and centered and soothed… and pain significantly decreases as well. Because we can actively control our body’s air exchange through intentional breathing, there are lots of awesome ways you can play around with using your breath to calm you, invigorate you, increase your focus, decrease your anxiety, decrease your pain, increase your oxygenation, decrease stress and muscle tension, and more. I have done …

Knowing What Won’t Ground You Outside Is As Important As Knowing What Will

    I recently got this fabulous question from a reader:   “I was wondering if you can effectively ground through cement? I was under the impression that you needed to be on grass, dirt or sand. I live in Las Vegas, lots of concrete with very dry dirt and stone.” – G. D.   I love this question because it’s super important to know not just what will ground you when you head outside… but what actually might be preventing you from being grounded at all. Sadly, you can spend your entire day outside — eating outside, playing games …

10 Ways Grounding Can Directly Support Your Health During This Pandemic

  I’ve gotten lots of emails asking if grounding is a good idea as a way to boost health during this pandemic. The medical literature suggests the answer to this is a resounding “Yes!” for many reasons, probably more than you think. As you might know, most patients who suffer serious illness during Covid19 infection do so because of the body’s inflammatory response (the often referred to “cytokine storm” in the lung adds to this), subsequent hypoxia from lung inflammation, and hypercoagulation of the blood, leading to blood clots. These three reactions the body creates as a response to coronavirus …

Do You Get The Feeling That Mother Earth Is Asking For A Reset?

  Me too.   And I know how we can do it.   I just happen to have spent the past several years writing a book that New Harbinger is publishing right now… and in it I literally talk about exactly how our health, and the health of our planet, are intimately interconnected. At first I have to admit that I was really sad about the timing of this book being release right now — as my book tour, book signings, and speaking events for the next two months have all been cancelled.   But then I realized that humanity …
