The Importance of Grounding and Earthing for Optimal Health


earthing or groundingGrounding or Earthing is an amazing simple, yet powerful therapy by which we reconnect to the earth’s gentle, negatively-charged surface to restore and maintain the body’s most natural electrical balance.

Since time began humans have had continuous contact with the Earth. Not only do our bare feet touch the ground when we walk, but we’ve slept on the ground not even realizing our connection to the subtle but most important electrical signals that help to regulate our bodies intricate mechanisms.

This electrical flow between the Earth and your feet is slowly disappearing from many busy lives as shoes that were traditionally made from leather that actually conducts electrons and therefore maintains a conductive contact between the Earth and your feet are slowly being replaced by rubber and plastics that do not conduct these electrons from the Earth to your feet. The insulating materials in our homes act as electrical insulators and block the beneficial flow of electrons from the Earth to our bodies.

This lack of contact with the Earth may have a direct result in the inflammatory aches and pains, fatigue, poor sleep and stress many of us are suffering. We need to get back to the basics, back to connecting with the Earth in order to combat chronic inflammation…the cause of most modern diseases.

Grounding or Earthing as it is sometimes called is an amazingly simple yet powerful therapy and one of the easiest things to do.

If you live in or near rural areas…open fields, woods, or mountains, grounding is an incredibly convenient and easy practice. Just take your shoes off and walk barefoot (the rich nerve endings in your feet make them ideal conductors of the abundant healthy building electrons) or use your hands to touch grass, sand, dirt or concrete, especially when damp or wet. You can also ground yourself by sitting or lying down on the earth.

Take trips to the beach and immerse your feet in the sand if possible, dip your body into the sea or any conductive body of water such as a lake rich in minerals that delivers natural healing energy into your body. If you have a mineral rich

Go hiking and camping in the mountains…these are all perfect activities where shoes are not necessary and you can get back to your earthly roots.


Why do we need to ground ourselves?

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.

Our body’s natural internal electrical stability and internal rhythms are influenced by the amount and type of electricity in our environment and can affect our health for better or worse.

Another reason why this electrical connection with the Earth is important is the fact that our modern environment is full of a wide spectrum of electromagnetic radiation from computers, mobile phones and masts, radio and TV broadcasts, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth…the list goes on and on.

This radiation induces voltages along with exposure to “electromagnetic pollution” or “dirty electricity” which comes from an electric utility or electronic equipment.

Our bodies produce their own subtle electrical communications which are a vital part of the function of our body’s systems and these are negatively affected by these potentially disrupted fields in our bodies. By grounding ourselves 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.

By restoring the body’s natural internal electrical stability and rhythms, grounding helps improve cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, nervous, and immune system function and restores the body’s natural healing potential.

It is important to understand that inflammation is a condition that can be reduced or prevented by grounding your body to the Earth the way all of our ancestors have done for hundreds if not thousands of generations.

When you provide your body a constant source of free electrons, both through healthy eating and grounding you help to radically reduce inflammation which is widely acknowledged as one of the primary factors contributing to premature and accelerated aging and chronic disease.
