    545. The Positive Impact of Getting Negative with Jeff Krasno

    The Positive Impact of Getting Negative
    In this episode, Jeff explains the science behind “grounding,” also know as “earthing.” Direct contact with the earth's surface allows you to absorb negative electrons from the earth, which can help reduce inflammation and neuter the free radicals that cause oxidative stress in the body. Who knew?!

    In this episode we cover:
    00:02:00: Reducing oxidative stress by connecting with the earth
    00:04:00: How negative charge is transferred to the earth’s surface
    00:06:00: How negative ions neutralize free radicals in the body
    00:10:00: How antioxidants can decrease oxidative stress
    00:11:00: Health benefits of “grounding”

    Balance Weekend Retreat with Schuyler Grant & Jeff Krasno in Topanga, CA, April 5-7, 2024.
    This weekend retreat is all about practices that cultivate balance in your life.

Health Info Delivered with Truth, Respect, & Compassion

Jeff Krasno balances sharing cutting edge research with honoring the reality of “no one can do this 100% perfectly 100% of the time.”

He chooses guests who talk about what I can do to take ownership of my well-being through lifestyle changes, rather than pushing the “pill of the week” the way so many “health” news hosts do.

I write this review particularly in response to episode 544. When Being too Healthy Hurts, which is about orthorexia, a mental health issue that involves compulsion about “eating perfectly,” meaning eating “the highest quality diet.”

Jeff handled the issue with his usual compassion and also told his own struggles with orthorexia. If he were only here to hawk products, he would not have created and episode about the real harm of creating stress by trying to eat a perfect diet as the “antidote” to orthorexia appears to be the “middle way,” the path of balance and internal peace. Helping people find their balance and inner peace will never make you rich because its impossible to make peaceful people buy things by making people feel bad about themselves because inner peace is the opposite of feeling bad about yourself.

Really appreciate your courage for addressing this topic & consistently offering honest information that improves quality of life rather than just lightening our wallets.

Fabulous

The Commune podcast has been so rewarding on many levels. I gain new insights into wellness topics that really help me navigate my health and lifestyle. Jeff is intelligent, thoughtful and kind. He interviews amazing people and I learn so much each time I tune in. Thank you Jeff and the Commune team for this amazing podcast.

Build your body to last a lifetime

This was a awesome podcast, I learned so much about the importance of biometrics and ditching the scale, also learned about the importance of protein intake. I love the concept of training for life!
