Dandelion tea helps with bloating from the high pressure of the airplane and the endless sitting. It's also a natural diuretic and helps combat sausage fingers and elephant ankles. It is also a great compliment to a hot epsom salt bath.
Activated charcoal reduces bloating and gas, lowers cholesterol, and can even prevent hangovers. Make sure to choose an activated charcoal made from coconut shells or other natural sources.
Earthing or grounding is the theory that our bodies are meant to come into contact with the earth on a regular basis. As it turns out, it isn't the result of a bunch of barefoot yoga teachers talking about energy - there's biophysics and science that back this theory, too.
Positive electrons in the form of free radicals are associated with chronic inflammation. Our lives have taken us away from direct contact with the earth – rubber soled shoes, cement floors and electromagnetic waves from our cell phones and WiFi… and as a result positive electrons build up in our bodies. When we're grounded there's a transfer of negatively charged free electrons from the earth into our body. And these free electrons are probably the most potent antioxidants known to man.
