Discover How to Eliminate, Chronic Disease, Pain and Inflammation with This Remarkable Healing Phenomenon.
Diabetes is a deadly health problem that’s crushing not only the health of millions of people, but also straining the healthcare system to the breaking point. A recent analysis of the healthcare costs of chronic diseases found that a full 10% of spending goes directly to diabetes treatment.
The analysis, conducted by The Hastings Center, a nonpartisan research institute, reports that the total annual cost of diabetes care is $92 billion. By 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) estimates that figure will jump to $192 billion.
The death rate for diabetes, unlike other chronic conditions, is rising by 1.2% each year.
The number of people with diabetes has grown exponentially as well, from 11 million in 2000 to 23.6 million in 2009.
The Hidden Cause of Chronic Disease
Some health care professionals are worried that our preoccupation with treating symptoms may be blinding us to a single, underlying cause for many diseases. James L. Oschman, Ph.D., of Nature’s Own Research Association, in Dover, New Hampshire, is one of those sounding the alarm. Not only do Oschman and others believe they may have pinpointed a common cause, but also that they have identified an effective and affordable (often free) treatment option.
Lifelong conditions like diabetes affect the quality of life not only of those with the disease, but also of family members… caregivers… and other loved ones. “The human and economic burden of diabetes in the future is certain to be overwhelming,” wrote Oschman in his article “Chronic Disease: Are We Missing Something?,” published by the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. In the article, Oschman presents an opinion echoed by medial researchers worldwide: inflammation is the “common denominator” of a vast number of diseases.
Take Out Your “Molecular Garbage”
A study done at Harvard Medical School connected inflammation to specific metabolic disorders, including Type 2 diabetes. Scientists found blood samples from obese and diabetic mice contained excessive amounts of inflammatory compounds called mast cells. Mast cells serve an important function—healing damaged tissue—but the research team found that an overabundance of mast cells seemed to cause serious problems.
The mast cells collected in fat tissue and leaked “molecular garbage” (free radicals) into surround cells. The outcome? Chronic inflammation.
Other studies have linked chronic inflammation to conditions such as…
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Heart disease
When patients seek treatment for these problems, most doctors do nothing to reduce inflammation. They treat the symptoms, rather than going after the root cause. Fortunately, groundbreaking research offers a solution that reverses the damaging effects of inflammation. All that’s required are the soles of your feet, the palms of your hand, and the information on how to use them to optimize your health.
Two physicians, Pawel and Karol Sokal, set out to identify “universal regulating factors” behind the chronic diseases they encountered every day in their clinics. Their work convinced them that modern life has deprived us of a vital “nutrient”—electrons from the earth—necessary for peak health and wellness.
Ground therapy (also called “grounding” or “earthing”) is based on the scientific principle that standing barefoot on the ground gives us access to the earth’s subtle electromagnetic energies, and that these energies can have an enormous positive impact on our health. The Sokals studied the impact of ground therapy on diseases including osteoporosis… hyperthyroidism… and diabetes. Using a well-controlled double-blind study design, they examined the changes in blood chemistry caused by ground therapy.
Ground therapy resulted in statistically significant improvements in the concentrations of different minerals and electrolytes, such as…
- Ionized calcium
- Inorganic phosphorus
Ground therapy also had a direct, beneficial effect on the regulation of blood glucose—an important key to diabetes management.
Evidence from the Sokal study and other related work demonstrates that ground therapy could be a useful tool for tackling the current inflammation and chronic disease crisis.
According to Oschman, “The subject is obviously of profound importance and worthy of further investigation, given the toll chronic disease takes on our health and happiness.”
Reclaim Your Natural State of Health
Diabetes, heart disease, and cancer are not natural conditions of the human body: they are diseases we have acquired as a result of living our insulated and disconnected modern lives. They are diseases we have developed by living unnaturally. We live on our planet, but we have insulated ourselves from it at a steep cost.
Chronic diseases—like diabetes—are the consequence of this disconnect. When we live naturally, we correct our bodies’ electron deficiencies and restore them to their natural states. Health is natural, and it is our birthright. Part of being healthy and functioning optimally appears to involve connectedness to the earth. Unfortunately, the medical-industrial complex’s obsession with developing chemical solutions for every symptom has greatly disadvantaged the health of our bodies and minds.
