What is Earthing?

Earthing is a relatively new Phenomenon but has already featured on Dr Oz and has some high profile advocates such as Dr Mercola, David Wolfe & cardiologist Dr Stephen Sinatra. Dr David Richards an Australian Medical doctor openly talks on You Tube of his success in curing numb feet (peripheral neuropathy) in diabetics.

Earthing involves connecting your body to the Earths energy field either by walking barefoot outside-in contact with the earth, sand or grass and/or by sitting, working or sleeping indoors whilst connected to a conductive device that delivers the natural healing electrons of the earth into your body.

Observations & research indicate the benefits of Earthing are as follows

  • Decreases inflammation
  • Lowers stress and promotes calmness by normalizing cortisol (stress hormone) levels
  • Improved blood circulation by thinning the blood, improving blood pressure & blood flow
  • Improved sleep
  • Protects the body against potentially harmful electromagnetic field (EMFs)

Decreasing inflammation is vital as Medical doctors believe that Chronic inflammation may be the vehicle that drives many of the most feared illness of middle & old age & has been linked to cardio vascular diseases, type two diabetes & cancer.

How does Earthing Work?

Today as we all wear plastic/rubber soles shoes & cover floors with synthetic material like carpet or vinyl etc we have lost our direct connection to the earth. The earth being struck by lightening on average 4000 times per minute, offers a limitless supply of negatively charged electrons. When the body is in disharmony or inflamed (which may manifest as pain, illness, disease or stress) we are in a positively charged state, so if you put your bare skin (positively charged) against the earth (negatively charged) the smaller of the two (you), will pull electrons from the larger (earth), thus we absorb the negative electrons into our body to equalize the ‘electric potential’ between the two and negate the positively charged areas of inflammation.
