Grounded, discharged and healthy


Interestingly, grounding research has now discovered that if you place your feet on the ground after an injury (or on a grounded sheet, or place grounding patches on the balls of your feet), electrons will migrate into your body and spread through your tissues. Any free radicals that leak into the healthy tissue will immediately be electrically neutralized. This occurs because the electrons are negative, while the free radicals are positive, so they cancel each other out. As noted by Dr. James Oschman, an expert in the field of energy medicine:

”So really what is happening with grounding or earthing is that you’re protecting your body from — I call it, collateral damage… Damage that was not intended to take place but does take place because we have disconnected ourselves from the Earth by putting rubber and plastic on the bottoms of our shoes.”

Free radical stress from exposure to pollution, cigarettes, insecticides, pesticides, trans fats, and radiation, just to name a few, continually deplete your body of electrons. Simply by getting outside, barefoot, touching the Earth, and allowing the excess charge in your body to discharge into the Earth, you can alleviate some of the stress continually put on your system. Walking barefoot can help ameliorate the constant assault of electromagnetic fields and other types of radiation from cell phones, computers, and Wi-Fi. It’s also thought that grounding may actually facilitate the formation of structured water in your body.

Furthermore, grounding also calms your sympathetic nervous system, which supports your heart rate variability. And, when you support heart rate variability, this promotes homeostasis, or balance, in your autonomic nervous system. This is important because anytime you improve your heart rate variability, you’re improving your entire body and all its functions. If you want to learn more, check out the Grounded documentary (in which I actually appear). You’ll hear first-hand accounts from residents of Haines, Alaska who have overcome chronic pain, sleep apnea, and much more simply by getting grounded.

How to Reconnect with the Earth’s Electrical Charge

Many Americans spend most of their waking hours wearing shoes with rubber or plastic soles. These materials are very effective insulators, which is precisely why they’re used to insulate electrical wires. Yet, they also effectively disconnect you from the Earth’s natural electron flow. Wearing leather-soled shoes will allow you to stay grounded with the Earth, as will walking barefoot, but you’ll need to do so on the proper surface. Good grounding surfaces include:

Sand (beach)
Grass (preferably moist)
Bare soil
Concrete and brick (as long as it’s not painted or sealed)
Ceramic tile
The following surfaces will NOT ground you:

Rubber and plastic
Tar or tarmac
Like eating right, exercising, and sleeping, grounding can be described as yet another lifestyle habit that supports optimal health by supporting your body’s ”electrical” connection with the Earth. It’s supported and backed by prominent medical doctors, scientists including Dr. David Suzuki, NASA astronauts, and was used by ancient civilizations who placed strong value on their relationship to the Earth.

As mentioned, simply taking off your shoes as much as you can when you’re outdoors will help you take advantage of natural grounding opportunities. When indoors, using a grounding pad or sheet is an excellent way to stay grounded while you’re working or sleeping. (For frequent travelers, I typically bring a grounding pad with me when I fly, too.)

Stress reduction

Give it a try!


On most days, are you worried or calm?

I often ask this question during one of my coping crisis workshops. To manage the demands of life and work, coping skills have become a topic of discussion to reduce employees’ risk for mental illness, as well as to positively impact their engagement and productivity.

The microskill of mindful visualization can increase the degree of calm you have in your life. Mastering it takes about 10 minutes of focused practice five to six times a week. There are no shortcuts to the benefits; it takes discipline, patience and intention.


The above question is aligned to a growing line of brain research called neuroplasticity that purports our brain is constantly being shaped by our experiences, thinking and emotions. We increase our success at accomplishing an outcome when we focus on it, whether good or bad for us. In the case of Sam, a chronic worrier, over time his brain adapted and reinforced his worrying. That resulted in increased levels of anxiety accompanied by symptoms such as fear, uneasiness, dry mouth, shortness of breath, difficulty sleeping, restlessness and muscle tension.

Through the power of focus and attention, each of us can influence and re-shape our brain’s architecture. Neuroplasticity research indicates that it basically takes the same level of effort to become a worrier as it does to be calm.

In one year from now, would you like to see yourself as a calmer person with all the benefits? If so, and you’re looking for a change, proceed to the next step.


It’s your life, your choice and your brain. You need to understand that it’s possible to create calm, regardless of how your life is today, if you truly want to. One proven way to improve your mental health is to adopt mindfulness, where you change your attention from worrying and experiencing a hectic life to focusing on being calm and focus on the now.


Mindful visualization is a structured model designed to facilitate mindfulness that can influence how you view and interact with the world. Based on neuroplasticity, creating experiences that promote calm and happiness can shape the brain so it improves its ability to be calm and happy, benefiting your experiences both at work and at home.

Five steps for mindful visualization

1. Measure your current state.

On a scale of one (low) to five (high), how calm are you? Write this number in your daily calendar so you can track it.

2. Find now.

Look around and notice five things that you can hear or see: the colour of your shoes, a clock or the sound of a fan. This is a transition step that gets your mind from where it was to now.

3. Take five.

Practice being in the moment without judgement for five minutes. Use a timer or go by feel. It’s fine to go a bit longer, but not less. To prepare for this step, take a few gentle breaths in and out to relax and then set your eyes on a spot. Allow your mind to be empty and just focus on your breathing or the spot at which you’re looking . If your mind wanders off task, that’s fine, just bring it back to now and focus on the spot. This mindful step helps train your brain to slow down. It gets easier with practice.

4. Visualize benefits.

Some people, when they visualize, can run a mental video; others hear an audio story. It doesn’t matter. As above, no judgement: when your mind wanders, catch yourself and come back to your visualization. Visualize yourself being calm in situations you find challenging or worry about. Picture yourself in different situations where you are able to stay calm. We all have seen others stay calm under pressure. Use this as a reference point to fill in the blanks for your visualization. Focus only on success and positives – no negatives. If a negative jumps into your mind, release it. Think about what you did. How did others react? The outcome is experiencing the benefits of being calm and thinking about how a calm person behaves, thinks and feels.

5. Anchor success.

On the same one-to-five scale, re-measure how calm you are. Track your progress over the next six weeks.

Once you master this exercise, you can replace calm with any word you choose to add to your life, such as happiness.

Jag kan tillägga:

Sluta att äta, eller kraftigt minska intag av ätbart som kommer i tub, flaska, eller burk.

Allt som är konserverat har tillsatser.

Färska kryddor, istället för kryddor från kryddburkar.

Färska frukter, gurka, tomater etc istället för konserverade sådana.

Minska på vittbröd, ät mera av fullkorn bröd utan tillsatser.

Se upp med tillsatser som kallas citronsyra. Dessa har för länge sedan inget att göra med frukten citron, utan är en numera ett kemiskt framställt produkt med mycket giftig mögel som bas! (googla gärna).

These 9 Foods Will Help You Unclog Your Arteries Fast

These 9 foods are very effective when it comes to unclogging the arteries. Eat them and reduce the chances of getting a serious disease


They are full of fiber which stops the production of cholesterol. The soluble fiber in the oats is connected to cholesterol and they can help in its elimination from the organism. If you want to reduce cholesterol for approximately 20% you should eat 1.5 – 2.5 cups of oatmeal in a day.

Cranberry Juice

You should drink 3 cups of cranberry juice in a week. This will unclog your arteries because the juice can produce energy and absorb fat. It stops the accumulation of fat in the blood vessels as well.


It is an antioxidant which can stop the hardening of the arteries. It lowers the damage to our blood vessels and stops the progress of the disease.

Olive oil

It is a great ingredient when it comes to production of cholesterol. It contains a lot of monounsaturated fats which can destroy the bad cholesterol.


People use garlic to get rid of different disease. It is mostly used for treating heart disease and high blood pressure, but it can prevent calcification of the coronary artery as well.


It is full of potassium and folic acid and can prevent hypertension. It will free the arteries, stop the production of cholesterol and reduce the risk of a heart attack. Spinach also contains lutein, which can protect macular degeneration.


Tomatoes contain lycopene, a compound which can stop hardening of the arteries. Koreans researches discover that women who had high level of lycopene do not have problems with the arteries.

Melon and kiwi

Eat a cup of kiwi and melon to unclog your arteries. They are full of antioxidants and can reduce the bad cholesterol.


They are full of quercetin, resveratrol and flavonoids. They stop oxidation of cholesterol, which can form plague on the walls of the arteries. They can lower the risk of blood clots which can cause a heart disease.

Histamin, allergi, klåda


Måttlighet med all mat, det är vad som krävs av en allergiker.

Histamin är ett ämne, en så kallad biogen amin, som finns i kroppen och som har olika uppgifter. När vi får ett myggbett så samlas det histamin vid bettet för att neutralisera giftet och “laga” kroppen. Det är histaminet som gör att det kliar. Histamin är även en neurotransmittor, ett slags “kommunikationsämne” som finns i hjärnan och gör så att den fungerar som den ska. När vi utsätts för saker vi inte tål producerar kroppen massor av histamin för att skydda sig, så mycket att det kan bli FÖR mycket, och då kliar det och sväller och inte bara ämnet vi inte tål, men även kroppens försvarsmekanism, kan då bli ett problem, det är då man kan behöva ta antihistamin, som neutraliserar överskottshistaminet.

• Histamin finns i all rökt, jäst, lång-lagrad, konserverad och inlagd mat.
• Histamin bildas när maten bryts ner.
• Mat kan innehålla höga histaminhalter redan efter ett par dagar i kylskåp.
• Frysning stoppar histaminproduktionen.
• Histamin bildas snabbast i 25°C, exempelvis i mat, mjölk och smör som står framme.
• Histamin försvinner INTE när det en gång bildats, inte ens vid upphettning.
• Vin och öl innehåller histamin. Alkohol generellt paralyserar enzymerna som ska bryta ner histaminet.
• Sötningsmedel innehåller inte histamin, men kan ha stor kemisk påverkan på kroppen hos känsliga personer och barn, och bör undvikas.

• Ketchup, senap, majonnäs och köpta såser och dressingar
• Tomater och tomatsåser
• Yoghurt, filmjölk, creme fraiche, keso, philadelphiaost och syrade/jästa mjölkprodukter
• Ost, utom mild hushållsost
• Fisk (i synnerhet lax och konserverad fisk, viss fryst fisk kan fungera)
• Spenat, avocado aubergine, zucchini, pumpa
• Jordgubbar, ananas, kiwi, melon
• Övermogen frukt generellt
• Torkad frukt, russin, plommon etc
• Bröd som luktar jäst och hembakat bröd/bullar
