Earthing heals inflammation, reduces pain, strengthens your immune response, speeds up wound healing and heals autoimmune diseases

In the last hundred or so years we have lost something vital for our health and wellbeing: our electrical connection to the Earth.  With the advent of rubber and plastic soled shoes, and insulating mattresses in insulating houses, we spend our days and nights disconnected from the Earth, an incredible source of nourishment and physical healing.

But many of us are thankfully waking up to the fact we are living disconnected lives and going back to our roots – our ‘electrical’ roots.

Thanks to the pioneering efforts of one man, Clint Ober, the phenomenon of Earthing is now growing worldwide as people share their knowledge with friends and family members. After all, we all want the same thing: health.

The great thing is that it’s totally FREE to access and it works immediately: one only has to walk barefoot in the grass or on a beach for 10 minutes to regain this vital healing connection and feel the Earth’s nurturing effects.

Of course, the downside is that in our modern day, fast paced lives it is not always practical to do so.  How many of us have access to a beach or a beautiful garden or park on a regular basis? And if we do, how many take the time to actually use it?  How many people live in high rise apartments now, several (hundred) feet about the ground?

How being ‘unearthed’ negatively affects our blood

The Earth’s surface is a massive reservoir of negatively charged free electrons.  Without a constant connection to this reservoir, the cells in our body are unable to balance the positive charge which we accrue in our daily life.

The negative effect of excess positive charge in the blood can be seen very clearly by the way in which the cells are attracted to clump together on the left (Fig.1).  Thicker blood causes high blood pressure and heart attacks. When the same blood is ‘grounded’ (on the right), the blood viscosity lessens.  In layman’s terms, it becomes thinner and can flow more easily through the body.

If a patient is taking the commonly prescribed drug warfarin to thin their blood, for example, this will typically cause unwanted side effects over the short and long term. By simply grounding every day, the patient may be able to reduce and even eliminate the use of pharma meds since grounding thins the blood and normalises blood pressure. (If you are on meds, you must continue taking them, and consult your doctor about your intention to incorporate ‘grounding’ or ‘earthing’ as part of your overall health regime).

Receiving free negatively charged electrons directly from the Earth is such a simple thing, yet the effect can be so profound on our health and wellbeing.

Healing: how ‘earthing’ speeds up recovery time!

In terms of physical healing, earthing your body massively speeds up recovery time and helps wounds heal that won’t.

Fig. A

In Fig A, on the left, you will see photographic images documenting accelerated improvement of an 8-month-old, non-healing open wound suffered by an 84-year-old diabetic woman.

Fig A Shows the open wound and a pale-gray hue to the skin. (B) Taken after just one week of grounding or earthing treatments, shows a marked level of healing and improvement in circulation, as indicated by the skin color. (C) Taken after 2 weeks of earthing treatment, shows the wound healed over and the skin color looking dramatically healthier. Treatment consisted of a daily 30-minute grounding session with an electrode patch while patient was seated comfortably. The cause of the wound adjacent to the left ankle was a poorly fitted boot. A few hours after wearing the boot, a blister formed, and then developed into a resistant open wound. The patient had undergone various treatments at a specialized wound center with no improvement. Vascular imaging of her lower extremities revealed poor circulation. When first seen, she had a mild limp and was in pain. After an initial 30 minutes of exposure to grounding, the patient reported a noticeable decrease in pain. After 1 week of daily grounding, she said her pain level was about 80% less. At that time, she showed no evidence of a limp. At the end of 2 weeks, she said she was completely pain-free.

Fig. B

In Fig. B, you can see a rapid recovery from a serious wound. After earthing, there was minimal swelling and redness expected for such a serious injury.

There was minimal redness, pain, and swelling, and cyclist was able to continue the race on the day following the injury. (B and C)

In our modern lives we can’t always be outside and barefoot, and so grounding products can provide this electrical connection to the Earth in a convenient and practical way.

Reducing Electromagnetic Radiation

There is another effect of grounding which is particularly relevant in our modern electrical world.  Our environment is full of a wide spectrum of electromagnetic radiation (EMR), 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 electrical system.  When we are full grounded to the Earth we reduce the levels of these induced voltages, so our systems ‘normalise’.

Just think of how tired you feel if you are on the computer for too long – not just eye health suffers, your whole body feels wired and out of kilter, and for good reason.

Remember: we are electrical beings, living on an electrical planet, and this ‘electrical’ connection is absolutely critical for our health and wellbeing. So get grounded today!
