HOW DOES EARTHING OR GROUNDING HELP US?
Research shows that Earthing:
Improves blood flow
Relieves muscle tension and headaches
Dramatically speeds healing and prevents sores
Reduces or eliminates jet lag
Speeds recovery from athletic activity
Protects the body from harmful electromagnetic fields (EMF)
Lowers stress and promotes calmness
Do you notice you feel better when you walk barefoot on the Earth?
Twenty years of research has explained why this happens.
Your immune system functions optimally when your body has an adequate supply of electrons, which are easily and naturally obtained by barefoot contact with the Earth.
Electrons from the Earth have antioxidant effects that can protect your body from inflammation and its many well-documented health consequences. For most of our evolutionary history, humans have had continuous contact with the Earth.
Electrons meet your red blood cells and makes them negatively charged and so they repel each other circulating your blood properly the way humans have evolved on this planet. Fifty years ago we switched from leather soled shoes through which electrons can move to insulated shoes which they cannot.
It takes 45 minutes to have a complete electron flush through the body, which is why you should take your shoes off and get grounded when you fly to a different time zone and then you reset and avoid jet lag.
When you lie on the grass or beach you feel really earthed after only about 15 minutes because the electrons are entering your body at each point of contact. Which is what the sheets do through every point of contact with the skin .
When you have inflammation or arthritis you have white blood cell release to location and you are left with Free Radicals which are positively charged, electrons are negative and so they are neutralised and relief is felt in 30 minutes
It is only recently that substances such as asphalt, wood, rugs, houses, cars and plastics have separated us from this contact.
It is known that the Earth maintains a negative electrical potential on its surface. When you are in direct contact with the ground (walking barefoot, sitting, or laying down on the earth’s surface) the earth’s electrons are conducted to your body, bringing it to the same electrical potential as the earth. Living in direct contact with the earth grounds your body, inducing favorable physiological and electrophysiological changes that promote optimum health.
There is an emerging science documenting how conductive contact with the Earth, which has is also known as Earthing or grounding, is highly beneficial to your health and completely safe. Earthing appears to minimize the consequences of exposure to potentially disruptive fields like “electromagnetic pollution” or “dirty electricity.” As so many of us live and work in urban areas with technology all around us Earthing is more important than ever to counteract the negative energy fields that modern technology transmits and gets absorbed in our bodies.

Both David Suzuki and Dr Deepak Chopra have endorsed earthing.
