Alexandra, also known as The Barefoot Speaker, is a highly acclaimed public speaker who speaks about Health, Wellness, Fitness, Stress, Earthing, Habits Transformation and more. She is known for working with professionals, particularly women in their 30’s and 40’s to help them relive stress or overcome depression.

Her talks cover a number of different topics:


1. What does Earthing have to do with Mental Health

Emerging research is revealing that direct physical contact of the human body with the surface of the earth (grounding or earthing) has intriguing effects on human physiology and health, including beneficial effects on various cardiovascular risk factors.

Reconnection with the Earth’s electrons has been found to promote intriguing physiological changes and subjective reports of well-being.

In patients who experience anxiety, emotional stress, panic, fear, and/or symptoms of autonomic dystonia, including headaches, cardiac palpitations, and dizziness, grounding could be a very realistic therapy. These patients may see positive effects most likely within 20 to 30 minutes and in almost all cases in 40 minutes.
