Earthing or grounding - book suggestions

Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever! Clinton Ober, Stephen T Sinatra, Martin Zucker

'Earthing' introduces readers to the landmark discovery that living in contact with the Earth's natural surface charge - being grounded - naturally discharges and prevents chronic inflammation in the body. This effect has massive health implications because of the well-established link between chronic inflammation and all chronic diseases, including the diseases of aging and the aging process itself.

The Earth Prescription: Discover the Healing Power of Nature with Grounding Practices for Every Season - Laura Koniver

A life lived indoors is not a life lived. And yet many of us spend the majority of our days indoors, trapped in our own heads, addicted to our screens and online connections, and feeling more and more disconnected to our own bodies-and the planet-than ever before. Intuitively, we know that even a five-minute walk outdoors can calm us and awaken our senses, but we tell ourselves we don't have time, or we can't seem to make the time.

In The Earth Prescription, holistic physician Laura Koniver, MD, offers the ideal antidote to the toxicity of a life isolated from nature-grounding, or directly touching the earth to heal your body and rejuvenate your sense of total well-being. Think about how good it feels to get outside and walk along the grass. This simple activity connects you to the earth, allowing you to reap its restorative powers-which include reducing depression, lowering blood pressure, curbing stress, and increasing happiness.

With this practical and uplifting guide, you'll learn how to incorporate the practice of grounding anytime, anywhere. Also included is an "earth journal" to log your experiences and positive results, as well as a troubleshooting guide to help ensure that you stay grounded in every season-despite the weather! This book will give you everything you need to enjoy the healing energy of nature-you simply have to get outside and get grounded.

Laura Koniver, MD, received her medical doctorate degree from Jefferson Medical College in 2000 at the age of twenty-six, and has been passionately supporting her patients' natural healing ever since. She is an artist, author, holistic physician, and internationally recognized grounding advocate.

From the Ground Up – Laura Koniver

'From The Ground Up' is the world's first healing children's book about grounding! Also known as "earthing," connecting with the earth (ground) is one of the best things you can do to support your natural health and healing. This picture book illustrates for children, in full color, how Mother Earth is our ally in health and how we can use her powers to heal. There are text boxes with more detailed information for older children, and a parent reference section in the back full of more ideas for parents in supporting the health of their child. Parents can grab this book and read it outside with their child...and by the end of the book their child could be feeling more centered, happier, and healthier! A breakthrough picture book for all ages, baby through adult.

Written by physician Laura Koniver, MD, one of the expert protagonists in the motion picture "The Grounded." "The Grounded" is a movie about the extraordinary healing powers of the Earth. Dr. Koniver took the scientific and intuitive understanding about grounding, presented in the film and translated this into an informative and enchanting picture book for children. Never before has this information been accessible to children the way it is presented in "From The Ground Up."
