  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.

And during all that time, I’ve only come across one healing modality that supports the entire body — head to toe, every organ system — in such a powerful way.   Clear air is awesome and nurturing.
