Earthing (also known as grounding) refers to the landmark discovery that living in contact with the Earth’s natural surface charge – being grounded – naturally discharges and prevents chronic inflammation in the body, amongst many other health benefits.
Had you heard of it before? If not, you are sure to find this very interesting. So simple, yet so unheard of.
An introduction to Earthing
This short 15 minute film is a great introduction to what Earthing is. The documentary is called “Down to Earth” and features Clinton Ober who discovered Grounding and its many benefits:
Earthing in a few words
Earthing has many benefits. Just as the sun gives us warmth and vitamin D, the Earth underfoot gives us food and water, a surface to walk, sit, stand, play, and build on, and something you never, ever thought about—an eternal, natural, and gentle energy. Think of it perhaps as vitamin G—G for ground.
What does that mean to you? Maybe the difference between feeling good and not so good, of having little or a lot of energy, or sleeping well or not so well. You can’t see the Earth’s energy but some people can feel it as a warm, tingling, and pleasant sensation when they are out walking barefoot along the water’s edge at the beach or on a stretch of dew-moistened grass.
Living in contact with the Earth’s natural surface charge – being grounded – naturally discharges and prevents chronic inflammation in the body. This effect has massive health implications because of the well-established link between chronic inflammation and all chronic diseases, including the diseases of ageing and the ageing process itself. Other health benefits include reducing or eliminating chronic pain and improving sleep as well as promoting a deeper sleep.
How do you ground yourself to earth?
Grounding exercises to connect you to the Earth are straightforward: just take off your shoes and socks and get outside. Stand on the Earth: grass, stone, sand, or dirt work best. You can stand in one place, walk, or lay down. As in forming any electrical circuit, you need two points of contact.
To contact with the Earth’s surface electrons by walking barefoot outside or sitting, working, or sleeping indoors connected to conductive systems, some of them patented, that transfer the energy from the ground into the body.
Where to find out more
One of the original publications is a book called “Earthing – the Most Important Health Discovery Ever!” by Clinton Ober, Stephen Sinatra and Martin Zucker. Clinton Ober discovered Earthing and its benefits. Stephen Sinatra M.D. is a board-certified cardiologist and nutrition and anti-aging specialist, and Martin Zucker has more than 30 years as a professional writer of natural healing, fitness, and alternative medicine.
There are also companies that now manufacture earthing products, especially designed for those who are not able to regularly ground themselves to earth. You can find out more informations on websites such as earthing.com
