Experiences & Information

In this post, I am going to share some experiences and some things I have been hearing over the past weeks. Last week I shared some of my favorite podcasters, and this week I want to give you some things to consider from some of those podcasts.

First, let me share a little of our experience last week in Arkansas. My dad is working in the Russelville, AR area. Mom and I go with him at least once a month. We have 2 days to ramble in the mountains and little towns. Technically, we have 2 half days and 1 whole. So, on that whole day, we hit the scenic highways and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. Our destination is usually Harrison, but we have found several ways to get there. This past time was the prettiest ride yet. The weather was so nice at sixty-three degrees. When you consider that in MS it still feels like July in October, you understand our excitement for sixty-three degrees. Mind you, it didn’t stay that cool, but it was around seventy-five most of the day.

In Harrison we have found a couple of really cool health food stores. I may have already mentioned this in a previous post. However, it deems repeating. If you are ever in Harrison, AR, and you need a healthy snack, drink, or supplements, or you’re like us and just like health food stores, visit Nature’s Wonder and Prairie Market.

We ate lunch at Prairie Market. We had organic chicken salad pitas and fresh on tap grape Kombucha. It was all delicious. While we ate, some children entertained with music. They were playing guitar, fiddle, mandolin, and a drum. They did pretty good. I think it’s wonderful to see children doing something like that instead of sitting with an electronic gadget, or glued to a TV.

In Clarksville, AR where we stay, there is another health food store that we really like. It’s called Health Matters. They have supplements and such, and they also serve wraps, sandwiches and smoothies. Their chicken salad wrap is really good. We got a smoothie last week and it was delicious. There is also a health food store in Russelville that’s nice. I think it is called Country Cupboard Health Food Store. We’ve only been there once, but I’m sure we’ll go back.

In Clarksville at Health Matters we met a lady working there who has a sister that we know. Her sister lives about thirty miles or so from us. Then, at Nature’s Wonder in Harrison we met a lady working there who lived about eight or ten miles from us for five years. Small world!

Moving into the info I’ve been hearing, we have all heard of grounding. It has been brought to my attention that it matters where you ground. Be sure you don’t ground around electric lines above or below ground, electric meters, or any other sources of dirty electricity. It’s best to get a meter to test your area to determine a safe place to ground.

We have heard for years that aluminum is bad for us, and that’s true. However, some health researchers are finding that standing on aluminum foil for a short time (1 to 5 minutes), is better than grounding, especially in light of dirty electricity. I haven’t found enough information on this to be convinced, but I have tried it. One health expert I trust has his children doing this every night. I contacted him and he said there is a chemical on the foil that isn’t good for us, but something is always going to be wrong with everything. He seemed to think the good outweighs the bad. I’m not suggesting you do this, but I thought you might want to study it out for yourself.

Until next time, have a healthy and blessed week!
