How Grounding Helps Protect Your Cardiac Function For A Lifetime

      Last week I wrote an article for you outlining how stress and trauma increases your risk for heart disease, but that this increased risk was reversible. This week, let me give you one of the best tools I know for supporting heart health — that is through grounding. Our hearts emit the strongest electromagnetic field of our entire body… thousands of times stronger than the electromagnetic field of our brains!

This electomagnetic frequency that pulses

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.

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
