Go Barefoot and Age Gracefully…….

I've been a fan of Dr. Mercola's for a while.  If you aren't familiar and enjoy hearing from a not so typical doctor who questions and challenges the medical industry you should check him out.  I've run to his site many times for advice on fevers, dental procedures, female issues, exercise, skin care etc.  Here is a link to his site, you can sign up for a daily email which are usually very eye opening and interesting..... Lately Dr. Mercola has been talking about "grounding" or "earthing".  I … [Read more...]
