What Exactly Is This Strange Thing Called Grounding?
Grounding – or earthing – refers to connecting electrically with the Earth.
A growing body of research is finding numerous health benefits of the physical body being Grounded.
Unfortunately, with our modern rubber or plastic soled shoes and insulated sleeping arrangements, we no longer have a natural electrical connection to the Earth, unless walking barefoot.
Dr Stephen Sinatra, a highly respected and sought-after cardiologist, whose integrative approach to treating cardiovascular disease has revitalized patients with even the most advanced forms of illness, explains the health benefits of Grounding really clearly in this video :
We’re Surrounded By Electromagnetic Radiation That Disrupt Our Bodies
Our modern environment is full of a wide spectrum of electromagnetic radiation, from computers, mobile phones & masts, radio & TV broadcasts, WiFi, Bluetooth, power lines, domestic wiring, and other electrical appliances.
This electromagnetic radiation induces voltages in our bodies, disrupting the trillions of subtle electrical communications which are a vital part of the function of our body’s systems.
By being grounded to the Earth we greatly reduce the levels of these induced voltages, as we are then effectively shielded by the Earth’s large electrical mass.
What’s The Simplest Way To Become Grounded?
The simplest way to become grounded is to go outside and place your bare feet or hands on some grass or earth, or to immerse yourself in a body of conductive water such as the sea or a mineral-rich lake.
When indoors, an Earth connection can be made by driving a metal rod into the ground outside, running a wire from the rod, and then connecting it to ourselves.
This may sound like a lot of hassle, but fortunately the majority of domestic electrical systems in the world already have such a rod and wire running indoors, connecting to the ‘earth’ pin on every mains electrical outlet.
Don’t worry – Rather than having to connect a wire to ourselves, it’s now possible to buy earthing sheets, mats, bands and patches for use indoors.
How Will I Feel When I’m Grounded?
The most immediately noticeable effect people report from being Grounded is that they ‘feel better’.
This has been described as a feeling of greater peace within themselves, feeling calmer with reduced stress levels.
If there is pain present then often this is reduced or disappears completely.
People who notice negative effects from using computers or other electrical equipment report a reduction or elimination of these effects when grounded.
What Other Health Benefits Are There From Grounding Regularly?
With regular grounding, numerous health benefits have been observed, such as:
- Improved immune function
- Improved digestion
- Improved sleep
- Rapid healing of injuries
- Improved blood circulation
- Harmonisation and stabilisation of the body’s basic biological rhythms
- Accelerated recovery from intense athletic activity
- Reduction of inflammation
- Reduced stress / anxiety / irritability
- Reduced electrosensitivity
So Get Out There & Put Your Bare Feet On The Ground
You’ll feel really good! :
- Go barefoot in the park.
- Walk on concrete.
- Walk on the beach.
- Walk on the sand.
- Go surfing.
- After you fly on an aeroplane.
It’s the most primitive, easiest, cheapest way of creating optimum health and homeostasis.
