Toowoomba Acupuncturist Discusses How Earthing (Grounding) May Reverse Anemia (Mediterranean Thalassemia)

In her article titled “How Earthing May Help Reverse Anemia Disorders”, Linda McNair (1) discusses how health writer and speaker, Howard Straus, proved to himself that EarthingTM had a profound effect on his anemic disorder called “Mediterranean thalassemia”. I have included McNair’s article in full for you convenience.

How Earthing May Help Reverse Anemia Disorders

Thalassemia & Sickle Cell Anemia – One Man’s Grounding Experience

(Thalassemia, a type of inherited blood disorder that typically produces anemia, occurs mostly among people of Italian, Greek, Middle Eastern, Southern Asian, and African descent.)

Health writer and speaker Howard Straus has struggled with the low energy of this condition for a lifetime. After starting grounding in 2014, his red blood cell count rapidly normalized and his stamina soared. He shares his personal story here. Mr. Straus can be heard on the weekly internet radio program “The Power of Natural Healing” at

“For the first 60+ years of my life, I was constantly bedevilled by a condition I never knew a name for, except for ‘Anemia.’  I always had low haemoglobin, most often marginal (just above the low ‘limit’ of 10 grams per decilitre).  When I lived with my grandfather, Dr. Max Gerson, during the school week, he tried to boost my blood by giving me daily doses of raw calf liver juice (it is just what you might imagine).  This was not my favourite part of childhood.

 “I never was really into sports, although my physique might have suggested I would be good at them.  I simply didn’t have the stamina to run up and down a soccer field, a basketball court, or sustain constant physical output.  So I became a bookworm, living much of my life in my head, reading incessantly, doing things that didn’t require a lot of exertion.

“As an adult, my mother would prevail upon me to get regular blood tests to ensure that I was not falling below a minimum, although on the few occasions that I did (due to travel, or some other stress causing me to be off my somewhat restrictive diet), it was very obvious: I experienced the ‘crash’ very specifically, and was unable to muster any energy or stamina. The smallest hill on a path I regularly walk was a challenge.  My 200’ uphill driveway required several stops for me to catch my breath and regain the energy to reach the top of the hill.  It would take months to rebuild my energy and blood to the point where I was just ABOVE the minimum, where I could function.

“One time, about 20 years ago, I went to a general practitioner for a blood test when I was in the BELOW minimum condition, and he diagnosed me with ‘Mediterranean thalassemia,’ a supposedly genetic disorder that is believed incurable.  As far as I can tell, Mediterranean thalassemia is somewhat similar to sickle cell Anemia, with the red blood cells (RBCs) twisted and tortured in shape, not the nice, fat, haemoglobin-rich flattened cells they should be.

“This condition persisted for most of my life.  I worked out a modus vivendi that allowed me to function, though not at vigorous sports, and life went on.  I got blood tests periodically, and if I was okay, they would show my blood just above minimum.  I learned to be careful.

In 2014, I was introduced to Earthing, and began sleeping on a grounding sheet. I had no aches, pains, inflammations or irritations, so I didn’t notice any significant immediate difference in my body.  How was I going to know if I got any good effects from the sheet?

“I quickly realized that I had an ailment that might serve as a yardstick for an effect: my thalassemia!  I decided to get a complete blood count (CBC) test immediately to provide a ‘before’ picture, then test my blood again after 30 days for an ‘after’ picture.  Numbers don’t lie, lab tests are objective, and I figured that if there was an effect, it would manifest in the numbers. A CBC test measures different features of your blood, including RBCs.

“I got my CBC back, and, to my amazement, within three days of putting the Earthing sheet on my bed and sleeping grounded, the haemoglobin level tested smack in the middle of the normal range! This was the first time in my life that my blood tested normal.

“I didn’t notice a sharp increase in my stamina, as I am accustomed to the condition and generally don’t push myself.  But I did notice relatively quickly that I had no more problems going up my driveway, even with two heavy trash cans in tow.

“The tests since then have stayed in that normal range, to the point where I no longer test my blood frequently or even annually.  I have plenty of stamina, and don’t get exhausted. At age 73, walking and singing are my main exercises these days (yes, singing is a physical commitment, and I perform regularly with my chorus and my quartet), and neither of them is limited by my stamina.

“For me the improvement from grounding is obvious.  And so is the importance of staying grounded.  It happened on one or two occasions that when we washed the linens, the Earthing sheet did not get replaced on the bed for a couple of days, just normal sheets.  After only one day of not grounding, the effect is striking for me.  I would start to experience lower energy, sleep disturbances, even poor digestion.  You can imagine how fast I put the sheet on then, with the expected good result.

“My quality of life has clearly improved.  When you have Anemia, and your blood is right at the margin of low haemoglobin, you have little or no margin of error, or resiliency.  Stress, a short period of less-than-optimal diet, can use up the little margin you have. Return the haemoglobin to normal levels and you don’t have to worry about that anymore.  Doesn’t mean you should abuse yourself, but you don’t have to worry about being so close to the edge that a little push can put you over.

“My sister is active in the health field in Italy. When I told her about my experience, she suggested Earthing to someone she knew who had been also diagnosed with Mediterranean thalassemia.  That person began sleeping grounded and had the same turnaround results that I got.

“Two positive results do not, of course, equate to proof that a simple way exists to reverse this otherwise ‘incurable’ ailment.  However, the results encourage me to suggest that grounding should be tried by individuals with thalassemia as well as another, and more common genetic disorder affecting haemoglobin: Sickle Cell Anemia.”

I have recently had my book published by Xlibris Press. It covers numerous aspects of human health and wellbeing and includes information on three newly discovered organs. 

Ancient Chinese Physicians Considered the San Jiao Organ was the Largest Organ in the Body

Ancient Chinese scholars believed that the San Jiao Organ was the largest Fu organ in the body. They further believed the Sanjiao was a literal organ that was located inside the body but outside the other Zangfu, that is, outside all of the other 11 organs. Due to this configuration, the Sanjiao has no defined morphology, and was thus known to have “no form” because it took on the form of the surrounding organs. I believe that the ‘formless’ San Jiao Organ complex described by ancient Chinese sages is actually the modern Connective Tissue Metasystem (CTM) that is only now being considered an organ in its own right. This exactness of these two organ complexes is only the very beginning of the similarities between the ancient TCM Sanjiao Organ and the modern understudied and under-appreciated organ-complex called the Connective-Tissue Metasystem.

My easy-reading informative book is essential for anyone wanting to know all about the functionality and location of the Sanjiao (aka San Jiao, Triple Warmer, Triple Heater), and the nature and properties of the Connective-Tissue Metasystem (CTM), which I believe are one-and-the-same. The San Jiao is having a PROFOUND effect on your personal health and well-being, and ironically, you probably know nothing about it.
