levels) in healthy ranges, can improve sleep and also reduce inflammation.
Our bodies are meant to come into contact with the Earth (a “grounding” force) on a
regular basis. Positive electrons in the form of free radicals can build up in our bodies and direct contact with the ground balances this out as it is a negative grounding charge
Our bodies and cells have electrical energy, and especially with the high prevalence of Electromagnetic waves, Wi-Fi and mobile phone waves, many of us have a high amount of positive electrons built up in our bodies.
It Used to Happen Automatically
Throughout history, humans have spent time outdoors much more than we do in modern time and have been in direct contact with the soil. From walking on the ground barefoot,
to gardening or tilling the soil, humans have always touched the earth… until recently.
Now, we live in houses, wear rubber shoes, are exposed to EMFs daily and don’t often
come into direct contact with the ground.
Have you ever noticed that you sleep better on a beach vacation after walking in the
sand or being in the ocean? The sand and ocean water are both naturally conductive materials and both help ground the body and remove excess positive electrons, as well as walking on dewy grass.
What is Earthing?
When in direct contact with the Earth, your body becomes suffused with negative
charged free electrons and equalizes to the same electric energy level as the earth.
According to emerging research, Earthing can be beneficial in:
* Reducing inflammation by defusing excess positive electrons
* Reducing chronic pain
* Improving Sleep (I can vouch strongly for this!)
* Increasing Energy
* Lowering stress and promoting calmness by reducing stress hormones.
* Normalizing biological rhythms including circadian rhythm
* Improving blood pressure and blood flow
* Relieving muscle tension and headache
* Lessens menstrual and female hormone symptoms
* Protecting the body from EMFs
* Helping support adrenal health
Your skin in general is a very good conductor. You can connect any part of your skin to the Earth, but if you compare various parts there is one that is especially potent, and that's right in the middle of the ball of your foot, a point known as Kidney 1. It's a well-known point that conductively connects to all of the acupuncture meridians. Interestingly, grounding—or rather the lack thereof—has a lot to do with the rise of modern diseases.
Unfortunately it seems to be a commonly held notion that many folks hold, which is that technology is the answer to many of our woes and that the past, including our connection to nature is to be left behind as quickly as possible. What is missing is the fact that science, at its core, is the study of nature and how the laws of nature come to bear upon us.
