Sittin’ Sexy Part II

I will always have some impairment in my right hand. Bowel and bladder issues, which I’ll address down the road, continue to be a heady annoyance from time to time. I do not have trunk control, which would be REALLY handy for a lot of things.

I was born in Alton, Illinois and lived the first 20 years of life as an able-bodied person, enjoying backpacking and rock climbing, meeting all sorts of people, four team sports in high school (two in college), choir (in HS and college), playing jazz trumpet, Improv. Comedy, Phi Alpha Literary Society at Illinois College and various plays and stage performances.

Earthing/Grounding: The Natural Remedy to Reduce Inflammation and Pain

Earthing/Grounding: The Natural Remedy to Reduce Inflammation and Pain Tagged with:

 

Recently I attended a three day workshop that introduced a new spin on an ancient method of reducing pain and inflammation through connecting with the earth. This method is currently known as Earthing or Grounding and has gained popularity since the 2010 book, Earthing: the Most Important Health Discovery Ever? by Clint Ober.
