Emerging modern biomedicine research has revealed that direct physical contact with the surface of the planet generates a kind of electric nutrition, with surprisingly potent and rapid anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. 1
We are bioelectrical beings, with hearts, brains, and immune and endocrine systems that are regulated by internal bioelectrical signals. When Earth connection is restored through grounding, electrons flood throughout the body, reducing inflammation and oxidative stress while also reinforcing the body’s own immune system and resetting biological rhythms. 2
Clinical results of “Earthing or Grounding” showed multiple and rapid effects as a result of intake of electrons from the Planet Earth including 1) reduced inflammation and pain, (2) improved blood flow and reduced blood viscosity, (3) reduced stress, (4) better sleep, (5) improved energy, and (6) improved response to trauma and injuries and accelerated wound healing. 3
Systematic Grounding Benefits
How do we begin to rebalance an electron deficiency?
Step into nature the way our ancestors accessed the electrons; walk barefoot on grass, moist soil, sand, gravel or concrete. Go for a swim in the ocean (it’s better for you than in a lake or a river in terms of conductivity). Sit under a tree and lean against the trunk.4
Some people realise that since childhood days, running barefoot on the grass at their grandparent’s house, they have lost the connection with Earth. By living a metropolitan life for instance they have been systematically depleted. We tend to overlook and underestimate the significance Planet Earth plays in our lives.
At the end of the 20th century, Ober in the United States and Sokal and Sokal in Poland independently found the physiological and health benefits of Earth’s grounding energy on the human body. 5 Ober 6 has observed that going barefoot for approximately 30 or 40 minutes daily can significantly reduce pain and stress. 7
The best way forward is to bare your sole to Planet Earth in the great outdoors.
