What if I told you that you could utilise one of strongest healing powers on the planet for FREE every single day? Well you can. It is called Earthing or Grounding.
What is earthing?
Mother Nature emits a constant flow of direct current that it continually stores from the sun’s energy. This current flows in the form of electrons from the earth. The human body naturally absorbs electrical charges from the Earth because the skin acts like a conductor. When we make direct contact with the earth and our bare skin, we tap into this unlimited energy source which allows us to experience many amazing health benefits. This practice is called Earthing.
Unfortunately, with our rubber or plastic soled shoes, and our modern day lifestyle with so many people working indoors, we no longer have a natural electrical connection to the earth.
Why is this connection so important?
The earth has an ever-lasting supply of negatively charged electrons. Toxins in our bodies are positive electrons and without that connection to negative electrons we aren’t able to find a healthy balance. Too many positive electrons in our bodies is associated with inflammation and disease, and this can be seen in our blood by the way in which the cells clump together. (See image below).
These days our bodies are constantly being flooded with positive electrons because we are surrounded by radiation from computers, mobile phones, TV, WiFi, power lines etc. This radiation disrupts the electrical communications which are essential to our body’s functioning properly. Being grounded to the earth allows us to greatly reduce our level of exposure to this radiation. We are shielded by the earth’s abundant electrical energy. Without this protection our bodies are being fried by the electrical magnetic fields and they have to call in their own resources to fight off the EMF’s.
If you’re in front of a computer you’re 100 times safer being grounded than if you’re not. The earth’s energy literally comes up through you and pushes the EMF’s off of you by 100 times.
Benefits of grounding
Positive ions in the body cause inflammation, so once you’re able to neutralise those free radicals with the electrons from the earth, inflammation begins to subside. Earthing reduces and even prevents the cardinal signs of inflammation following injury such as redness, heat, swelling, and pain. Connecting the body to the Earth enables free electrons from the Earth’s surface to spread over and into the body, where they have antioxidant effects.
You can experience the full spectrum of the earth’s nurturing energy for 8 hours at night using an earthing sheet. The constant flow of electrons that the earth releases while you sleep brings the body into a harmonious balance. This reduces stress and quietens the mind, helping you to get a deep restful sleep. Being grounded also restores melatonin production and nighttime cortisol levels drop when you sleep grounded, providing you with better sleep. These sheets easily plug into the grounding port of your home’s electrical outlet for an effortless way to tap into earthing benefits and improve your sleep patterns.
Rapid healing of injuries
When you are grounded your body is able to function and work more efficiently. Being grounded boosts the body’s immune response, and reduces inflammation, and this all accelerates recovery from injury. Therefore the more time you spend grounded, the greater your body’s ability to heal, repair and regenerate itself.
One of the most important benefits of earthing is the effects it has on the blood. The images below are dark field microscopic images of blood taken from an individual just before (left) and after (right) forty minutes of grounding. The pictures clearly show a dramatic thinning and decoupling of the blood cells. The blood samples were taken during research into grounding by Dr Stephen Sinatra MD.
- Improved blood circulation
- Supports detoxification
- Improves mood
- Improves clarity
- Slows the ageing process
Ways to ground yourself
The easiest way to ground yourself is simply to go outside and place your bare feet, or any part of your body, on some grass, earth, or sand on the beach (if you’re lucky enough to live near the ocean) 😉
You can also immerse yourself in conductive water such as the sea or a mineral-rich lake.
Use earthing equipment
Grounding companies have dedicated themselves to creating earthing equipment. This provides a practical and convenient way for people to ground themselves inside too. This is especially good if you work in an office all day and gives you the opportunity to take advantage of the earth’s healing properties all day.
I personally use the earthing bed sheets. Our bodies are cleansing themselves the most when we are sleeping, so grounding during this time supports the detoxification process and allows us to heal at a faster rate.
You cannot earth too much. In fact, the more you, the greater the benefits! Take off your shoes and get out in nature every day, and purchase some of the equipment to experience maximum benefits. You definitely don’t want to miss out on the earth’s healing power.
