In this episode Les sits down (via zoom) with Clint Ober. Clint's accidental discovery years ago has been seen as one of the most important of our time. The hidden connection all life forms share with our planet has proven to offer health benefits that can reach farther than many would have ever expected.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------Clint Ober is the innovator behind the Grounding Movement & CEO of Earth FX Inc., a research and development company located in Southern California, where he designs and develops indoor grounding products and continues to investigate the health benefits of grounding.
A series of seemingly unrelated yet highly synchronistic events dating back to his early childhood led to a groundbreaking discovery that many have called The Most Important Health Discovery of all time. Grounding has now become a massive international movement — causing people to shed their shoes and reconnect electrically to the surface of the Earth.
He first learned about grounding when installing Cable TV systems in Billings, Montana in the early 1960s. 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.
In the 1980s, he turned his attention to the developing computer industry and partnered with McGraw-Hill to distribute live digital news services, via cable, to PCs. This led to the development of the first cable modem and an increased awareness of the need for proper system grounding.
Following a health challenge in 1995, he retired and embarked on a personal journey looking for a higher purpose in life. During his travels, he noticed people wearing plastic and rubber soled shoes that insulate the body from earth. He wondered if no longer being naturally grounded could affect us. The question led to an experiment that suggested grounding alone reduced chronic pain and improved sleep.
Thereafter, he developed a working hypothesis: Grounding the human body to the Earth normalizes the functioning of all of the body's systems — the body utilizes the earth’s electrical potential and free electrons to maintain its internal electrical stability, normalizing all of its self-regulating and self-healing systems. Over the past twenty years, he has supported many of the over 20 research studies that collectively demonstrate that grounding reduces inflammation and promotes normal functioning of all body systems.
