Earthing and Grounding
Throughout history humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground. But modern lifestyle, has disconnected us from the earth in many ways:
- Live and work in multistory buildings high off the ground
- Spend nights on thick mattresses far from the earth
- Wear insulated rubber/plastic-soled shoes
For Dr. Sinatra, earthing is the most important health discovery made in his 40 years of practicing medicine.
Theory: Direct contact with the earth puts us in touch with the natural electrical energy of the earth’s surface. (Wearing shoes that separate us from the ground doesn’t count, nor does sleeping in a sleeping bag). Research by electrophysiologists and other medical experts suggests that the earths’ electrical energy may help protect and stabilize our body’s own electrical system, recharging, replenishing and, ultimately, healing us. This called Earthing/Grounding
3 in 1 Solution:
1- Natural energy
2- Stress Relief
3- Vibrant Health
Just as the sun gives us warmth and vitamin D, the earth underfoot gives us not only food and water, a surface to walk, sit, stand, play, and build on, but something you never, ever thought about—an eternal, natural, and gentle energy (ELECTRONS).
We can’t see the Earth’s energy, but some people can feel it as a warm, tingling, and pleasant sensation when they out walking barefoot along the water’s edge at the beach or on a stretch of dew-moistened grass. The earth’s surface is negatively charged and has an unlimited supply of “free” electrons. If your body has lots of positively charged free radicals (creating inflammation), the earths’ free electrons can help to neutralize them.
How connecting to the earth can help?
When our feet or our bodies touch the ground, electrons naturally flow from the place where they are plentiful (the earth) to where they are not (our bodies). This contact can trigger health benefits, often within minutes:
- Relieve muscle tension
- Reduce headaches
- Ease menstrual symptoms
- Boost the immune system
- Combat inflammation
- Reduce stress hormones
- Improve blood pressure
- Sleep better
- Have more energy…
Walk barefoot outdoors whenever possible for a half-hour, sit, stand, or walk on:
- Wade or Swim in the ocean (rich in minerals)
These are all conductive surfaces from which your body can draw the Earth’s energy. The following are NOT conductive surfaces:
Earthing is safe and natural for people of all ages, young and old. Experience for yourself the healing energy of the Earth! Discover more on earthing/grounding scientific research @ www.earthing.com
