A Midwestern Doctor The Cell Danger Response is an evolutionarily conserved adaptation cells use to protect themselves from environmental stressors. Mitochondria orchestrate the CDR by first detecting a threat and then switching from powering the cell to shutting it down to protect the cell from danger. Many complex illnesses result from a chronically sustained CDR […]

The Effects of Grounding (Earthing) on Inflammation, the Immune Response, Wound Healing, and Prevention and Treatment of Chronic Inflammatory and Autoimmune Diseases

James L. Oschman, Gaétan Chevalier and Richard Brown JIR-69656-the-effects-of-grounding–earthing–on-inflammation–the-imm Multi-disciplinary research has revealed that electrically conductive contact of the human body with the surface of the Earth (grounding or earthing) produces intriguing effects on physiology and health. Such effects relate to inflammation, immune responses, wound healing, and prevention and treatment of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune […]
