What is you Air Condition?

With winter well under way and in fact almost done, it is high time to contemplate how much quality air, fresh or otherwise, our bodies have been receiving these last couple of months. I live in a regional city that falls to around 2degress or less regularly and still I have maintained an open window all season, albeit only an inch or so. Below is a page from Being Well Basics which I completed recently, and will post here page by page. If you would like a copy of the whole book please email Enjoy, Lainee


As we know, air is the basis for maintaining life itself and is essential for robust wellbeing; however we are not always aware of how much we pollute our internal and external environment; by the choices we make and also the air we choose to breathe.
Estimates are that the majority of people spend 90% of their time indoors and that indoor air quality can be two to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Indoor air pollution is often a major source or at least a contributor to a state of being unwell.

The single most effective way to keep the air in your home healthy is to keep things out of it that cause air pollution. This includes cigarette smoke, excess moisture and chemicals.

The second important strategy is to ventilate, which draws pollutants out of the house. Run the exhaust fans in your bathroom and kitchen. Open your windows. Make sure you have a good exhaust system in place for appliances and stoves.
Also within your place of employment or study become aware of and educate others about the effects of photo copiers, lack of ventilation, electromagnetic pollutants and other potential air quality hazards that may be there.

Take yourself to the closest natural space regularly to breathe in clean air, with a waterfall or ocean water nearby if possible. This takes advantage of the negative ions from these sources that positively affect our health when breathed in. I find a walk in the rain (not a storm) in summer months is super-invigorating, both externally and internally.
Get into the habit of taking five deep breaths (deep down into the stomach), regularly throughout each day (of clean air). Each hour or so is ideal. This increases oxygenation of your system and helps eliminate the effects of unclean air.
Be aware that most carpets, mats, lounges, mattresses etc are leaching unhealthy chemicals from them into the air. Dry-cleaning chemicals, along with chlorine in the water breathed in when showering also put a strain on the body. There are safer options available for all these, including attachments to reduce shower chlorine.
Improving the quality of air we breathe can be a major step to keeping our personal temple/house clean. This forms a platform for being well in all areas, thus maximising the benefits from this very basic FLOW of Life.

Salt of the Earth

The list below Does Not refer to any table salt and please consider any personal medical condition or advice over any information here or elsewhere. Leafy greens are a great place to access sodium.

Natural real salt like Himalayan, Black Lava or Celtic Sea will assist with balancing acidity from cells, reducing the rate of aging, enabling proper Adrenal (Endocrine) gland function (wish I had known that long ago before wrecking my Thyroid), making bones firm, regulating blood pressure (of a person with normal range-anyone else research further), nerve stimulation and communication.

All in all a very important addition to the Wholefood List(ensure it is properly collected from a clean area), up there with clean Water and fresh Air it seems.

Not sure why I don’t like it, perhaps because I am usually low in supply due to developing a fear of it from the media when I used to indulge in such folly. Remember don’t up the anti with the table salt, ditch IT.

Wholefood Trivia

Aubergine (Egg Plant)

This plant was introduced from China and Africa into Europe initially and was used as decorative additions to gardens for centuries due to the beautiful colour.

Having a mild flavour they complement stronger, more pungent vegetables, though don’t purchase if it has a waxed skin as it provides the best benefits when the skin is used of the standard variety.

Egg Plants contain nasunin, said to protect brain cells from free radicals and assists to reduce cholesterol and improve blood flow. Also contains chlorogenic acid which is powerful for fighting free radicals.

Slices an be brushed with olive oil, topped with garlic and placed under griller (serve as is or peel and blend with garlic and other spices into a yummy dip), or add to a lentil and garlic salad. Add chunks of pre-boiled Aubergine to Goulash or Vegetable Curry for some extra heartiness.


I have been asked to speak to a group in a couple of weeks, inclusive of Earthing and felt to pop some basic info on this blog as a “Follow Up” or “Prior To” read….
So today the E in WELLTH Creation to is for EARTHING….enjoy…

EARTHING restores and maintains the human body’s most natural electrical state, which in turn promotes optimum health and functionality in daily life. The primordial natural energy emanating from the Earth is the ultimate anti-inflammatory and the ultimate anti-aging medicine.

Earthing is perhaps the most simple and natural remedy against proliferating, painful, and often serious conditions, including the diseases of aging, crated by various kinds of inflammation.

EARTHING at a Glance:

What is Earthing?
Earthing involves coupling your body to the Earth’s eternal and gentle surface energies. It means walking barefoot outside (Wet grass is best, dry grass, Concrete, Sand, Soil) Or tiles inside (NOT timber floors/painted concrete or vinyl). Swimming in a natural waterway is very effective, particularly the ocean due to sea salts. And-Or sitting, working or sleeping inside while connected to a conductive device that delivers the natural healing energy of the Earth into your body. For more than ten years, thousands of people around the world – men, women, children, and Athletes – have incorporated Earthing into their daily routines. The results have been documented and they are extraordinary.

What isn’t Earthing?
You are not in any sense being electrocuted. Earthing is among the most natural and safest things you can do.

What happens?
Your body becomes suffused with negative-charged free electrons abundantly present on the surface of the Earth. Your body immediately equalizes to the same electric energy level, or potential, as the Earth.

What do you feel?
Sometimes, a warm, tingling sensation and often feelings of ease and well-being.

Will you feel better?
Usually, yes, and often rapidly. The degree of improvement varies from person to person. The important thing is to make Earthing a long-term addition to your daily routine, and to do it as much as possible so as to gain maximum benefits. When Earthing is stopped, symptoms tend to slowly return.

What does Earthing do?
Observations and research indicate the following benefits from Earthing; we expect many more to emerge with ongoing studies.
*Defuses the cause of inflammation, and improves or eliminates the symptoms of many inflammation-related disorders.
*Reduces or eliminates chronic pain.
*Improves sleep in most cases.
*Increases energy.
*Lowers stress and promotes calmness in the body by cooling down the nervous system and stress hormones.
*Normalizes the body’s biological rhythms.
*Thins blood and improves blood pressure and flow.
*Relieves muscle tension and headaches.
*Lessens hormonal and menstrual symptoms.
*Dramatically speeds healing and helps prevent bedsores.
*Reduces or eliminates jet lag.
*Protects the body against potentially health-disturbing environmental electromagnetic fields (EMFs).
*Accelerates recovery from intense athletic activity.

Our bodies have the ability to recover from almost any condition if we relieve imbalances caused by stress. To do this, we must provide our bodies with essential natural elements; including clean air, proper nutrition, pure water, a Little sunshine regularly (at safe times sans sunscreen), a little good sea salt and respect for our bodies, PLUS the Missing Link, our connection to the natural electrical rhythms of the EARTH.
