WATER, GRASS, EARTH
The treatment of Chronic Inflammation. Part 1
I find it hard in the Arizona Desert to find grass. I know that in Concho the dirt is rich and it grows grass. Then in Snowflake the Silver Creek runs right outside of town, and everyone irrigates their entire lawn front and back when they open the flood gate. Yes everyone in Snowflake has grass in their yard. But as I said in another blog I grow weeds, stickers, thistles, Texas long horns (goat heads), and a few more, which I don’t know the name of.
So, the ocean is over 500 miles away and the water I can stick my feet into is up the other side of Flagstaff. On the backside of Conch at Lyman Lake it is a big area where the water is dammed so that the farmers can irrigate their crops. You can fish and take boats out on it. It is nothing like Colorado or Quebec Canada. I love to fish, but not in a mud hole and that is mostly what Arizona has.
Now you are asking what does this have to do with Aged-pain, or Chronic Inflammation. All the above paragraphs are very good grounding mechanisms. Where you can exchange the electrical energy between your feet and the earth, hence we have come up with the word Earthing. This leaves me with the only choice of buying a grounding or earthing mat. How would you tell if the mat you are getting is a good mat or if your going to get a lot of dirty electricity. Dirty electricity is when the radio has a lot of static, or there is a bad connection on the TV. I went looking for a good mat and found one that is not to expensive and works nicely.
I wrote a blog about “How are earthing mats made.”
The mat I prefer can be found “here” under grounding. I feel it is well made and will not give out any dirty electricity. If you use this link you will get 10% off of your order.
I know one thing when I stick my feet into the water even if it is the bath tub, it is great. Almost every muscle in my body stops hurting, that is till I have to climb out of the tub. I have an old small clawfoot tub. My granddaughter fits in it great, she is 5. It is really small.
FEET, What is so special about our Feet?
I find that shoes hurt my feet. That I just don’t like them. But the truth is I need the shoes here in the hot sand. I have never been brave enough to walk across a bed of coals, it doesn’t look pleasant. I watch people walking there dogs on the hot cement and yet the person has shoes on, the dog doesn’t. The minute the dog hits some shade his entire expression changes to ahhh. But the human is not paying attention. I want to yell at the human and tell him he is not being humane making that dog walk on 110+ degree cement.
A dog’s paw is very similar to our feet. A natural gait for dogs differs. Where one will trot everywhere, another will just mossy along and smell the roses. What is a normal gait for us? I know it is not trying to walk on my tipsy toes with stiletto on my feet. Some women think that it makes them sexier. It is not the cowboy with the boot on. Although, no one could miss that John Wayne had a special walk. So now we are making a statement by the shoes we wear. But does that make it our gate. When you take your shoes off, how do you walk?
A natural gait is bio-mechanically impossibly for any shoe wearer. What we have today in shoes are soles made of insulating material. The sole of our foot is made of or cover with 1,300 nerve endings per square inch. There is no where else on our bodies that is comparable in size that even comes close.
Wow! 1,300 nerves per square inch. So that leads to the next question, Why?
Why? What is the purpose of so many nerves?
The more connections we have to the electrical circuits of the earth the healthier we are. It is called sensory response. Our foot is our vital route to the earth. Just like a tree, there may be more roots below the ground then above. The foot serves a vital function of extracting energy from the ground. It nourishes us. The electrical energy we gather from the earth, through our bare feet, is like watering our vegetables. Shoes stop this exchange of electricity.
When a cross-section of the shoe is examined, there are several layers: The outsole, midsole, insole filler material, footbed, cushioning, sockliner. Of course to the left in the picture we are looking at, is a high heal shoe with a leather bottom. A statement; for the person has jeans on and is at the beach.
What the above description of the shoe cut in half would be a tennis shoe.
Which, when worn is a total disconnect from the earth.
In the Journal of Inflammation Research written in 2015, oh by the way it is now 2019. The research they did was on, “The effects of grounding (earthing) on inflammation, the immune response, wound healing, and prevention and treatment of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
They discovered that electrically conductive contact of the human body with the earth, helped make white blood cells balance, and had an effect on the physiology and health of a person.
There were experiments from when a person was sleeping, the repair work of the body and how much faster it the body repaired itself when the person was grounded to a mat. This again was in 2015. Since then we have fibromyalgia, diabetic foot cramps, muscle cramps, aches and pains of old age, just plain inflammation of joint (rheumatoid arthritis), just to name a few.
But they are doing only research, while the doctors continue to give us pills and tell us there is no cure. A book written in 2011 won the Nautilus Award for Wellness/Prevention/Health & Healing. But still today, ask your doctor if he knows what a grounding mat is. Or has he ever heard of Earthing? I ask my chiropractor if he had heard of Earthing mats (he is 72 years old) He said no what is it?
The best kept secret of the new age of health. Something that can delay the onset of muscle soreness, control the concentrations of white blood cells and other molecules involved in the inflammatory system. Grounding is also known to reduce pain and alter the number of various circulating chemical factors related to inflammation. I knew that they wanted to reduce the population down to 5 million, but doing it by letting us suffer is as bad as the human walking the dog.
A Poem by
When I cannot look at your face
I look at your feet.
Your feet of arched bone,
your hard little feet.
I know that they support you,
and that your sweet weight
rises upon them.
Your waist and your breasts,
the doubled purple
of your nipples,
the sockets of your eyes
that have just flown away,
your wide fruit mouth,
your red tresses,
my little tower.
But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.
Feet, when you see two people in love sitting at a table totally blind to anyone else around themselves, you can almost always count on the leg foot play under the table.
Feet are the essence to our sex life and fertility. Just message a person foot, in just that special way, they will melt right there for you.
Grounding mats come in sizes that you can put your feet on or your computer on.
There are other solutions to explore when you are trying to find a cure to chronic inflammation. Below you will find an article on food that will give you some recipes and suggestions. A grounding mat along with diet is probably the best results to curing the disease.
