Clint Ober – Inventor of Barefoot Grounded Earth Pad

Clint Ober – Raised in Montana – Roots in Nature

Clint Ober was born on July 14, 1944 in Fort Dodge Iowa, but spent most of his formative years in the great state of Montana. There exposed to the Native American Culturehe developed a love of nature and first learned of our important connection to the natural world. His immediate and extended families were farmers and ranchers, who also taught respect for the land and to listen and learn from the ways of the natural world.

Clint Ober – Little Formal Schooling

In 1959 when his father died from leukemia, he was left to take care of his mother and his five siblings with crops in the ground and a herd of livestock. As a result he didn’t finish his schooling.

Clint Ober – Well Versed in Cable Television

Eventually, Clint left the land for the excitement of city life and in the early 1960’s, he took interest in the fledgling CATV industry. After a few years of working with the local CATV operators in Montana, he was hired by Telecommunications Inc. of Denver CO as the National Director of Marketing. During the four years in this position, working with Dr. John Malone, the company grew from near bankruptcy to become the largest CATV operator in the US.

Upon leaving TCI in 1972, Clint began his own company, Telecrafter Corporation, which specialized in developing CATV systems, broadcast television and microwave communication properties. This company became the largest provider of CATV marketing and installation services in the US. The company also developed and owned interests in CATV systems, broadcast television properties and microwave distribution systems throughout Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. This company became public in 1980 and four years later merged with Wegener Communication Inc. of Atlanta GA.

Intrigued with the advent of the personal computer in the early 1980s and seeing the PC as a TV set without a signal, Clint began a new company, Information Services. This company which became a partnership between TCI, McGraw Hill and Information Services, accumulated distribution rights to every known wire services in the world. These included the likes of United Press International and The Associated Press to TASS news agency in Russia, Kyodo in Japan and Xinua in China along with live feeds from all US Exchanges. These wire services combined into a unified data stream were then transmitted via satellite to CATV systems and Broadcasters for redistribution directly to personal computers via multiplexed sub-carriers to a de-mod receiver attached to the PC. At the time, we along with Microsoft, Apple and Commodore assumed that like TV, radio and newspapers, live news and quote information to personal computers would be free [ad supported] and in a broadcast form. Needless to say, the Internet was discovered and e-mail, chat rooms and porn gave rise to a new generation of communications. Information Services then redirected its efforts to serving the news media.

Clint Ober – Health Setback – Changed His Directions Back to his Roots

In 1993, Clint experienced health setbacks. After a very difficult recovery from a major illness, Clint decided that he needed to get back to nature. So, he sold his big home and spent four years traveling around the US. Eventually, Clint decided that many of the health problems that people face, including himself, have to do with not being connected to the earth. His thoughts went back to his Montana roots and the great outdoors and natural world.

Combing his cable television knowledge he knew that static in television came from “un-grounded systems”, Clint drew a parallel to static in the human body being the result of not being grounded. He observed that livestock could live beneath electrical power lines with no signs of stress or ill-health, but people could not. The difference, the livestock were grounded, the people were insulated by their synthetic shoes and houses.

Clint Ober – Decided that a Big Piece of the Health Puzzle is Ground Conctact

Simple ground contact, Clint observed, neutralizes charge in the body and naturally protects the nervous system and the endogenous fields of the body, from extraneous electrical interference. This belief has been expanded to include the neutralization of free radicals produced within the body. Free radicals are produced by the body to destroy pathogens. And ground contact he postulated allows the earth’s free electrons to neutralize excess free radicals. With the free electrons from earth contact, excess free radicals would create an ever escalating cycle of chronic excess free radicals and chronic dis-ease within the body.

Another fact that Clint knew to be true about electrical systems is that grounding protects a system from electrical interference. In our modern world, we have many electrical systems that create free radicals and harm our bodies. Electric blankets, alarm clocks, televisions, etc. all produce magnetic fields. Being grounded to earth protects the human body from those electro-magnetic fields.

Now you know how a cowboy from the great state of Montana became aware of nature’s role in protecting the vital communications of the body.

Clint Ober – On the Trail of Helping Humanity

During the last few years, Clint has spent virtually every waking hour in the pursuit of understanding and identifying the impact that loss of ground contact has had on the body and how to facilitate people to have this ground contact in our modern world. The findings Clint has obtained to date extend far beyond anything he ever imagined at the outset of this journey.

The following summary is an overview in Clint’s own words of how the Barefoot Pad came to be:

In the beginning of my search, time spent with electrical engineers and medical professionals resulted in little more than blank stares and research in the medical libraries turned up nothing. Then after discovering that the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences was compiling a paper on the effects EMFs have on human health. I focused my attention on their work and as luck would have it, their information provided a simple piece of evidence that gave me direction. It was their conclusion that the adverse effects found in some human studies from exposure to EMFs was determined to be inconclusive as thesame effects could not be reproduced in animal studies. Pay dirt, EMFs in some studies adversely affect human health and animals in similar studies [a herd of sheep, baboons and the like] did not experience the same adverse effects. These animals were not wearing shoes and sleeping in comfortable beds insulated from earth, they were naturally grounded.

A method to effectively ground people while in bed was developed and then the new studies began. The effort produced, with a control group, the following results:

went to sleep quicker
reported sleeping better throughout the night
reported waking, being and feeling more rested
experienced a significant reduction in muscle stiffness
experienced the elimination of/or a reduction of chronic back and joint pain
reported improved general health
In addition, several subjects in the study also reported experiencing significant relief from asthmatic and respiratory conditions, rheumatoid arthritis, PMS, sleep apnea and hypertension

Then a Dr Russell Whitten of Ojai, CA confirmed these findings when he took an interest in the study and additionally grounded 35 of his own patients and found similar results.

This combined evidence confirmed that the human body, with loss of ground contact, is now operating in a bio-electrically stressed state.

Now the task is to identify individuals and companies that can help develop and provide effective and safe methods to restore our vital connection to the earth.

Inside Everyone There Is A Champion!

I found inspiration in this article from Maria Adelus,  MaxFormation Champion 2010

I remember that around this time last year I was preparing myself for the MaxFormation champion announcement.  I had made it to the top 10 but the online voting became more nerve-racking as each week passed.  Every day I had to tell myself over and over that I was a champion to matter what the outcome of the MaxFormation or figure competetion I was about to embark on.  I was a champion no matter what because I gave my all.  I was a champion because I believed in myself.  I was a champion because I never gave up.

Maria Adelus

There is a quote that I used to recite to myself as I was preparing for both the MaxFormation and ny very first figure competition.  Lao Tzu once said,  “By letting, it all gets done.  The world is beyond the winning.”

At first this quote ay seem the exact opposite of what any kind of competitor should live by.  However, If you think about it enough,  it makes perfect sense.  A true competitor competes out of his or her passion in the sport itself.    A true competitor competes for a reason that goes much deeper than the desre for fame or money that may come with winning first place.  It is only when a competitor releases the pressure for a win that is based on fame or money, that he or she actually becomes a champion.

As the new MaxFormation champion arises at the end of June, I want to congratulate him or her on a job well done.  However, I also want to encourage the rest of the competitors and tell you that you are all winners.  You are winners simply because of your effort, your faith and your perserverance.  Fame and money may be fleeting but our passion and drive to be a healthier you will never leave as long as you continue to nurture it.  Your ability to inspire others and continually make improvements in your fitness goals will always be at the tip of your fingers.  Each day you will continue to have the power to make a difference in yourself and the world around you.  Whether you are recognized for it or not does not make you anything less than a champion if you truly gave it your all.

Ultimately, the only way you will ever lose in your journey to fitness is if you quit.  All of you, however, have shown your perseverance in healthy living for the past several months.  Because of your perseverance, I have faith in each of you to continue to be a champion not only to yourself but also to those around you.  Don’t let this competition make you feel any less than the greatest of champions.  Continue to strive towards a better life with passion.   And remember what Mike Tysone once said: “Champions don’t quit.”

The “Business” of Drugs: New Study of 2 Million People Confirms Dangerous side Effects of Cholesterol Drugs

The "Business" of Drugs: New Study

The "Business" of Drugs: New Study

Dear Members,
In a study monitoring more than 2 million people in Britain, researchers from Nottingham University found that adverse side effects of cholesterol lowering drugs, known as “statins,” were generally consistent and worse in the first year of treatment.
Referring to the study earlier this week Reuters News Service reported that people using cholesterol-lowering statins have a higher risks of liver dysfunction, kidney failure, muscle weakness and cataracts and such side effects of the drug should be closely tracked, doctors said on Friday.
See Reuters report:
In fact, the study, published in the British Medical Journal, said patients taking statins like Pfizer’s Lipitor and AstraZeneca’s Crestor should be “proactively monitored” for side effects.
“Our study is likely to be useful for policy and planning purposes,” said Julia Hippisley-Cox and Carol Coupland, the two professors who led the study. They said it may also be useful “for informing guidelines on the type and dose of statins.”
Ironically, statins are among the most financially successful drugs of all time yet heart disease continues to be the leading and growing killer of men and women throughout the world. 
Coupland and Hippisley-Cox studied data from 368 general practices on 2,004,692 patients aged 30-84 years including 225,922 patients who were new statin users and had been prescribed a range of statins. They found that for every 10,000 high risk women treated with statins, the positive impact would be around 271 fewer cases of heart disease and 8 fewer cases of oesophageal cancer.
On the other side, there would also be 74 extra patients with liver dysfunction, 23 extra patients with acute renal failure, 307 with cataracts and 39 with a muscle weakness condition called myopathy.
The adverse effects including liver dysfunction, acute renal failure, cataracts and a muscle weakness condition called myopathy, were similar for all different types of statins, except for liver dysfunction, where the highest risks were found for Fluvastatin, which is sold by Novartis under the brand names Lescol and Lochol.
“All of the increased risks persisted during the treatment, but were highest in the first year,” they wrote.

Monday, June 7th, Newport Beach, CA: Physicians and medical practitioners from around the globe will gather at the Irvine Marriott Hotel July 22-25, for “HBOT 2010”, an educational symposium, of world-wide medical significance.

Their focus will be on the healing and life sustaining benefits of oxygen, in the treatment of serious medical conditions. New to this year’s symposium will be the latest information on the treatment of war veterans with blast injuries, as well as cutting edge information on HBOT’s use for people with cancer and diabetes.

Hyperbaric Oxygenation Therapy Treatment, (known as HBOT), originated with the treatment of deep sea divers many years ago. Today it is successfully used to treat a wide range of illnesses, injuries and chronic conditions. “Dozens of scientific papers will be presented by international specialists, who are making medical history using oxygen — in its many forms — for healing and sustaining life. This conference will feature the most focused group of oxygen specialists in the world,” said Dr. Donald L. Jolly-Gabriel, Ph.D., Chairman of the Richard A. Neubauer Research Institute, (RANRI) sponsors of the event. This is the 7th bi-annual symposium, presented by the institute.

Some 30 experts, using oxygen in the successful treatment of such diverse conditions as: traumatic brain injury, autism, cerebral palsy, lyme disease, spinal cord injury, alzheimer’s, stroke, diabetic wounds, multiple sclerosis, near-drowning, coma, anoxic encephalopathy, childhood mitochondrial diseases and more; will meet in Orange County, CA., for the first time. An exposition featuring some of the most advanced HBOT equipment and items in related fields will also be available to those in attendance.

“This forum provides a rare opportunity for the public to join the medical community in learning about break-through modalities in use here and abroad, to treat these serious conditions,” Jolly-Gabriel said. “Parents who are seeking alternative treatments for children with any of these conditions are urged to attend. They will interact doctors using HBOT and learn first-hand from and patients how HBOT has changed their prognosis and enhanced their lives.

“Oxygen is God’s gift to us,” Jolly-Gabriel added. “It is the single most important element necessary to sustain life. Although it is readily available everywhere, we are only now beginning to realize its true medical significance. It is a magnificent step forward in medicine.” The symposium will provide educational interaction with many of the world’s most eminent experts in the field.


Among featured speakers will be professor K. K. Jain, author of, “The Handbook of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy,” (now the “Textbook of Hyperbaric Medicine, currently in its fifth edition).” Jain is a retired professor and a highly respected consultant in neurology and hyperbaric medicine. He is also the author of more than 415 publications including 16 books on related topics.

Karen Simmons, CEO and founder of “Autism Today,” will be featured at an Author’s Luncheon Friday, July 23 at noon. Simmons, is the co-author of “Chicken Soup for the Soul, Children with Special Needs,” (co-authored with Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Heather McNamara); and both “The Official Autism 101 Manual,” (an IPPY Gold Medal winner); and the recently released, “Autism Tomorrow, The Complete Guide to helping your Child Thrive in the Real World.”

Dr. Paul Harch, of the University of Louisiana Medical Center, who developed the HBOT protocol being used to restore the lives of American military personnel, following Traumatic Brain Injuries in combat, will be lauded for his work, during the symposium.

In addition, Some of the most recent studies conducted by world renowned brain specialist Dr. Daniel Amen, M.D., of Newport Beach, will also be presented.



HBOT 2010 is designed not only for medical professionals, but for or those who are affected by any of the conditions listed above, or involved in related associations, (i.e. the America Cancer Society, The Autism Society, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, etc.). The HBOT 2010 agenda includes new approaches in oxygen therapy for the treatment and management of these illnesses.

Attendance will be beneficial to medical professionals including: Neurologists, Pediatricians, Neonatologists, Perinatologists, Physical Therapists, Physiatrists, Orthopedic Surgeons and other professionals. It will afford them new insights into this remarkable medical option as well as practical applications for its use in conjunction with their specialties. Non-professionals such as: care-takers in coma recovery cases, stroke recovery or family members assisting people with disabilities, will also find this program beneficial. “We have done everything possible to make attending this conference exciting, convenient and affordable,” Jolly-Gabriel said. HBOT 2010 has negotiated a conference rate at the Irvine Marriott Hotel, of just $109 per night for those who register before June 15.

Alternative Medicine

There are simple reasons why alternative medicine and healing is preferred by people in countries where alternative medicine is allowed to be practiced.

1. Time to listen

Living in a small village where everyone knows each other can be very convenient, as if there is a problem most people will be aware of it as it can not be easily hidden. Village people trust each other and if you get sick one day you go to a person that you already know and trust. The alternative healer in a village is not a foreigner and it feels easier to talk and explain what is wrong with yourself. In a traditional village most people are related to each other anyway and you don’t have to look for a far away person treating you. There is not only one person acting as a healer in a village, usually you have a certain person who is specialized in a certain illness or disease. The traditional healer will spend time listening to their patients, as time is not an issue, the healer will be able to diagnose the patient more accurately. There is a great advantage that the healer knows both you and your family with all good and bad sides that could influence your disease. The doctor doesn’t need to get to know you and your background. Much time is spent on dealing with the social reasons for the illness.

2. No Separation

If you live in a village all your life, the last thing you want to do is to be separated from the people you know, love and trust. Taking you to a hospital would mean talking to doctors and people you never met before and who has no idea about your background and problems. How on earth can you explain to them what is going on with yourself in just a few minutes. It would also be a disaster to stay in a hospital bed without the comfort of your family and friends.

3. The Belief in Success.

The traditional healer believes that his/her healing power is a gift of God and therefore takes their gift very seriously. They believe strongly that their treatments and remedies will bring the desired effects. This confidence by the healer will also make the patient confident in being healed which is an important factor in any healing process. The traditional healer is never doing the healing for money. The person being healed will bring the healer gifts in other forms during and after a successful healing has been done. The question is, what is alternative complementary medicine. Is the western medicine complementary to the traditional medicine of the other way around. With this said, there are many times that the western medicine works fantastic in combination with alternative complementary medicine and an open mind for both are greatly needed by any healer or doctor. Are you ready to start a healthier life?

Dr. Jolly-Gabriel Opens New Hyperbaric Clinic

( February 18, 2010 — After a decade of dedicated service to Whitaker Wellness Institute of Newport Beach, Donald L. Jolly-Gabriel, Ph.D. , has been named Executive Director of the Hyperbaric Institute at The Center for New Medicine in Irvine, California . The state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen treatment clinic is located at 6 Hughes, suite 150, Irvine, CA.

“Dr. Jolly-Gabriel will be a great asset to our team,” said Leigh Erin Connealy, M.D., medical director of the Center for New Medicine. “He is one of the foremost experts in the field. His use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in the treatment of U.S. soldiers who have suffered blast injuries to the brain is ground-breaking.”

Dr. Jolly was the founder of the hyperbaric oxygen therapy program at Whitaker Wellness

and Director of Hyperbaric Medicine there, for 10 years. During that time, he used expertise gained directly from pioneers in the field — Dr. David Hughes and Dr. Richard A. Neubauer — to successfully expand the application of hyperbaric medicine.

Originally developed for the treatment of deep-sea divers suffering from decompression sickness, it evolved to become a treatment of diabetic wounds and burns. In recent years it has been found to benefit a wide range of other conditions. They include: traumatic brain injuries, strokes, carbon monoxide poising, sickle cell anemia, gas gangrene, near-drowning, smoke inhalation, autism, post surgical healing, cosmetic surgery recovery, multiple sclerosis and many others.

Today there are 66 conditions ranging from

chronic degenerative health problems like atherosclerosis and peripheral vascular disease to diabetic ulcers and macular degeneration that can be treated, improved or resolved with hyperbaric oxygen therapy, known as HBOT. New applications are being developed in U.S. clinics and around the world. “Our biggest challenge is the education of doctors,” Jolly-Gabriel said. “Most men and women practicing traditional medicine today, were educated at a time when the benefits of HBOT were just beginning to be documented. So many doctors are skeptical simply because they received little or no information on HBOT in medical school.”

Creating Hyperbaric Answers ( ) has been key for Dr. Jolly to erase some of the mystery that has entangled hyperbaric oxygen therapy so that information can be provided to people who truly need it and are looking for it. His vision for Hyperbaric Answers is to impart people with the knowledge of this new medicinal procedure so that they can better educate themselves on the positive attributes of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric Answers is loaded with a variety of information that can shed light of how affective Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment has become. The Center for New Medicine is making this therapy available on site, at South Coast Hyperbaric Center, where patients may receive treatment for all conditions shown to benefit from increased oxygen levels,” Jolly-Gabriel said. “This can include everything from sports injuries and spider bites to near-drowning accidents, cardiovascular disorders, autism and stroke rehabilitation.” “You don’t have to have a catastrophic illness to benefit from HBOT,” he added. “Plastic surgeons and cosmetic dentists often refer patients for post-surgical treatment. They have found that these patients heal better, faster and with less scarring than without such treatment.” If you reside in the Southern California areas of Orange, Los Angeles, San Diego, Riverside or San Bernardino Counties and would like to meet with Dr. Jolly at the new Hyperbaric Institute in Irvine, or at one of the other clinics in San Diego, Los Angeles, Riverside or Palm Springs where he practices HBOT, then please call (949) 436-4960 or contact him online through
