The term "Earth Healing" (EH) has been used by our Environmental Resource Assessment Service (ERAS) for two decades.  Through ERAS, we have assisted over 200 groups in 34 states and Canada. EH has been used on our weekly television shows on WOBZ-TV at London, Kentucky for the past six years. EH was also the name of a book by Al Fritsch and Bob Sears. And finally, it is now being used for this website and associated non-profit organization, Earth Healing, Inc.  We hope you enjoy your visit to this site and invite you to join our mailing list!
