The expert-free therapy

We live in an age of complexity. We switch on the lights in our home, but don't really understand how the electricity works. We turn on the taps in our bathroom, without completely grasping how water can run through the pipes. We're probably vague about how television images are transmitted to our screens. Or even how our car works.

This age of complexity has brought forth a new breed: the expert. The expert makes the complex work, even if he doesn't make it understandable. He fixes the TV, the electrical and water systems in the home to make them function safely, and our car to run. He stands at the gates to the complex, acting as our intermediary to the unfathomable.

The complex has made our lives more comfortable, and electricity has replaced the candle, water systems the pump and bucket, the car for the cart. But the complex has also placed life at one remove. We don't have direct access or control any longer.

This is equally as true for the way we treat our ailments. Once, we relied on self-help therapies, herbs and tinctures. Today, in our age of complexity, we have an array of drugs that we don't understand, and so we rely on the doctor as interpreter and guide. So, it is refreshing that this month's special report explores a new therapy that couldn't be simpler to implement, and which already has garnered a wide array of successful case studies.

Its creator, Clint Ober, calls it 'Earthing'-and it merely requires you to take off your shoes and socks, and put your bare feet on the grass, earth or sand, ideally for 30 or 40 minutes every day. The theory behind this simple therapy seems to make sense.

Our bodies are electrical systems, and are subject to the same 'interference' as electrical products in our homes. That's why all electrical items are grounded-in other words, they are in constant and immediate contact to the 'zero ground', rich in electrons and negative ions. Without this grounding, electrical equipment would suffer interference. And, claims Ober, the same happens to us-but because of our modern lifestyle, we are insulated from our ground, and so are more likely to suffer from interference, which manifests as disease, such as inflammation and heart problems.

A simple therapy that all of us can do-and we don't need the expert, whether he is the doctor or, indeed, the electrician.
