On Saturday I went to the beach with Pippa for the first time this year. I love to walk barefoot on the sand at the water’s edge because it feels really good and is a great way of grounding. It is said that the earth has a slightly negative charge so when we walk barefoot on the sand or grass electrons flow into the body. These electrons cancel out free radicals or positive ions which have an inflammatory effect on the body. We tend to accumulate positive ions from toxins in the environment, eating processed food and from getting stressed. Antioxidants in organic fruit and vegetables help to fight free radical damage. Regular grounding by walking barefoot on the beach is just another simple, pleasant and free way to stay healthy.
