What Therapy put together the top 5 tips for being well in Singapore. Living in this little dot of heat, humidity, sun, and stress means a different strategy.
Urban living in Asia means highrise living. Humankind has evolved over time, with the rhythms of the planet. We are tied closely to the magnetic fields and the earth’s own radiation. Living far off the ground means being disconnected from the earth whose negative ions are health-promoting.
Thankfully Singapore’s urban planning has kept this city-state green and air quality decent. Sound + EMF pollution are still to watch out for. Singapore seems to measure surprisingly high for ground radiation, according to Nixon of EMF-Safety. Check out these tips to boost your well-being in 2014.
Living in Singapore means most of us are living, eating, playing + working high above ground floor. Disconnected from wellness-boosting Earth energies. The science is in – earthing or grounding is good for you! Walk barefoot on grass, sand, and concrete to soak up the goodness like neutralizing free radicals. Get earthing mats to sleep on to maximize your rejuvenation + repair time. Barefoot Therapy!
Earthing mats available at MediTherapie S$320 for a boxed set with the Earthing book by Clint Ober, Dr Stephen Sinatra, and Martin Zucker, cable to connect to earth directly , tester, and plug. For details at www.earthing.com
Hot. Sunny. Humid. Or torrential rain. That’s Singapore. Levels of Vitamin D? Most would test deficient. Singaporeans spend most of the time under umbrellas, with sunblock, or indoors. Vitamin D is needed by every cell! Get more sun, safely. Supplement, if needed.
Get more sun on your body. Straight up. Build up from 15 minutes. Go for safer sunblock options. Most commercial products are laden with toxic chemicals and there is no need for SPF over 30. Get good fats in your diet + try coconut oil as a sunscreen.
Singapore may not be on the Top 10 Most Connected Cities in the world but we sure like our mobile phones + gadgets. Read: wifi 24/7. That’s a whole lot of EMF. Looking for a good EMF shield? The attractive wooden balls by Geo-Safe-E® from Germany work on both natural + man-made radiation or the home set by BioGeometry. 6 Tips on Minimizing your EMF Exposure
NEWater anyone? NEWater is Singapore’s “high-grade reclaimed water”. Used mostly in industry, NEWater comes out of our taps too. Get Living Water with Cell-Gen technology. Highly mineralized. Neutralizes radiation and removes chlorine in tap water. With its Activated Hydrogen, Cell-Gen water is anti-aging and works on the acidity/alkalinity balance. We also love the Berkey, with the fluoride filters.
Singapore’s humid is HIGH. Who’s happy? Mold! Dehumidifier is a must in Singapore to keep the levels low. Boost your diet with garlic, Vitamins C, D + E, probiotics. See what biohacker Dave Aspery has to say about mold, its effects + what to do
Try bioresonance to test and treat for mould. Essential oils like clove are fantastic.
Bonus tip: The spleen is working hard in this constant heat + humidity. Try the Spleen Flow from Jin Shin Jyutsu.
