Earthing : the most important health discovery ever? book Earthing : the most important health discovery ever?
We humans, as all other living beings, are electrical creatures on an electrical planet, and the ground beneath us is more than something we just stand, walk, play, and build on. Simply walking or sitting barefoot on the Earth may be the solution for chronic inflammation, which is the leading trigger of chronic pain and most major health disorders. The transfer of negative-charged free electrons from the Earth into the body will extinguish the positive-charged destructive free radicals.

Floating gold : a natural (and unnatural) history of ambergris book Floating gold : a natural (and unnatural) history of ambergris
Preternaturally hardened whale dung is not the first image that comes to mind when we think of perfume, otherwise a symbol of glamour and allure. But the key ingredient that makes the sophisticated scent linger on the skin is precisely this bizarre digestive by-product? ambergris. Despite being one of the world's most expensive substances (its value is nearly that of gold and has at times in history been triple it), ambergris is also one of the world's least known. But with this unusual and highly alluring book, Christopher Kemp promises to change that by uncovering the unique history of ambergris.
