What To Know Before Bringing Grounded Touch Indoors To Your Loved Ones

  I was recently asked:   “If a sick person is lacking the earth’s electrons, can you donate your electrons to them by touching them?”   The short answer to this is: yes.   When you were a kid, did you ever walk around in your socks, rubbing them on a carpet repeatedly so you could sneak up to your sibling and shock them? (Or was that just me, LOL? My poor older brother.) If you’ve ever shocked someone when touching them, you know this on a large scale — you could literally feel the large quantity of electrons passing …

Acupuncture Medically Proven To Help Constipation

Acupuncture has been proven to not only significantly help relieve constipation… …but it actually helps relieve chronic, severe constipation not responding to other treatments! On top of that, acupuncture was shown to have long term, persistent effects in helping to solve constipation. Woot!   Why aren’t we hearing about this (yet still seeing endless plugs for Metamucil and fiber bulking agents as well as new Rx drugs such as Linzess and Amitiza on TV?)   Because holistic remedies never get the same press that over-the-counter and prescription remedies do.
