Rosalind Tan, "The Truth about Air Electricity & Health"

'The Truth about Air Electricity & Health' is an informative how-to book that uncovers the truth about the curative power of nature's fresh electrified air and how it can be harnessed for the healing of the body and mind.

It is an illuminating discussion of how tiny charges of electricity in the air can make or break one’s health. Evidence from scientific research and medical case-studies around the world is presented in terms that a layman can understand, and to prove beyond doubt that air electricity has a profound effect on all living things.

This book outlines many common physical and mental health problems we face in the 21st century -- stress, insomnia, asthma, allergies, depression, anxiety, infertility, childhood learning difficulties and more. It also shows the connection that these health issues have with distorted air electricity due to air pollution and other facets of the modern, industrialized world.

Advice and practical steps are given on how to improve our health and well-being through providing ionized, health-giving air in our internal environment, and through other natural means. It is a compelling book for people who care about their health and who want to lead a quality life.
