Before computers, TVs, and smartphones, human beings were close with nature on a daily basis. We’d sleep on the ground, walk around barefoot, eat only natural foods, and – who knows – maybe even climb a tree every now and then. Over time though, we’ve gotten further and further away from that way of life.
There are, of course, a ton of benefits of all the technology and scientific advances we have today, but what are the long-term consequences of keeping ourselves and nature at a distance? What are the repercussions of neglecting how we as human beings used to live?
My guest today has dedicated a big portion of his career trying to get us back to that natural state of being, and it’s safe to say he’s helped spark a movement! His name is Clint Ober, and through his work and research on “grounding”, he’s found there are massive benefits when it comes to our health that come from participating in the practice. Today, he’s going to share those with us. And now, please help me welcome the one-and-only, Clint Ober, to The School of Greatness!
Clinton Ober is CEO of Earth FX Inc., a research and development company located in Palm Springs, California. He first learned of grounding when installing Cable TV systems in Billings, Montana in the early 1960’s. A decade later, he formed Telecrafter Corporation and built it into the largest provider of cable installation services in the United States. This company specialized in proper grounding of cable installations for safety and TV signal stability. Over the past twenty years, he has supported a host of research studies (Earthing Institute) that collectively demonstrate that grounding alone reduces inflammation and promotes normal functioning of all body systems.
I’m always curious to learn ways to take my physical and emotional health to the next level, so this conversation with Clint was an eye-opener. If you’re ready to learn the benefits of grounding, why we should all take time to reconnect with Mother Nature, and SO much more, then this one’s for you. Without further ado, let’s jump into Episode 1,269 of The School of Greatness!
