Have you ever wondered what TV antennae have in common with the human body? While it may surprise you, they both need to be grounded to the earth in order to function properly. Clint Ober is an innovator and researcher who stumbled upon this knowledge installing TV antennae. He has applied his knowledge of electricity to the science of grounding the human body to the Earth, with incredible health results that have been corroborated in countless peer-reviewed studies. In this interview, he tells the story of how seemingly unrelated events took him on a path to discover the power of grounding the body to the Earth, and its effects on inflammation and a myriad of auto-immune illnesses that commonly afflict the modern-day human. Can a simple act like taking off your shoes and connecting to the Earth twice for about 30 minutes a day have an almost miraculous easing of chronic symptoms? The research says it can, leading Ober and other researchers to tout grounding as "the most important health discovery". Watch the full video to learn how exactly it happens.

this podcast is very dishonest. the hosts are claiming to interview these guests with minimal editing when the truth is they are not interviewing anybody. they are taking audio from other sources and cutting it up and pretending it comes from an interview they participated in.
