Earthing (or grounding) refers to the discovery of benefits—including better sleep and reduced pain—from walking barefoot outside or sitting, working, or sleeping indoors connected to conductive systems connected to earth so that we get a transfer of the Earth's electrons from the ground into the body. Grounding increases the surface charge on RBC's and thereby reduces blood viscosity and clumping allowing easier transport of oxygen and other nutrients via blood. Grounding can be as simple as going barefoot in nature, for 30 to 60 minutes once or twice a day on surfaces like grass, soil, gravel, stone and sand. If this isn’t practical, special grounding mats and pads are available online for convenient indoor use while sitting or sleeping; people with compromised health often benefit from more time being grounded.
Over 20 peer-reviewed studies have shown that Grounding (Earthing) reduces inflammation...one of the most damaging internal biological processes that leads to chronic disease. So get out there and put your feet on the ground, and/or increase your grounding time indoors with grounding products.
Below is a short video using Live Blood Analysis that shows the effects of grounding on red blood cells. For a more in depth look at the benefits then follow the link to watch the full Earthing Movie documentary.
Modern lifestyle has increasingly separated humans from the primordial flow of Earth's electrons. For example, since the 1960s, we have increasingly worn insulating rubber or plastic soled shoes, instead of the traditional leather fashioned from hides. The use of insulating materials in post-World War II shoes has separated us from the Earth's energy field. In the western world we no longer sleep on the ground as we did in times past.
During recent decades, chronic illness, immune disorders, and inflammatory diseases have increased dramatically, and some researchers have cited environmental factors as the cause. However, the possibility of modern disconnection with the Earth's surface as a cause has not been considered. Much of the research reviewed in this paper points in that direction.
