Grounding

Have your ever heard of grounding?

Well if you haven’t then you should, because this could be one of the greatest health discoveries yet. Let me show you just how powerful this can be.

Here is what blood viscosity changes look like after just 45 mins of grounding:

The conclusion is evident that grounding significantly improves thinning and decoupling blood cells.

Here is a 48 year old woman that hurt her knee 6 years ago, and has a severe bilateral knee pain. She used grounding for 30 mins and this is the result:

The results show that she has a dramatic reduction of chronic inflammation, and after only 12 weeks the patient reported 90% reduced pain. 1

In an NIH (National Institutes of Health) study, ‘The effects of grounding (earthing) on inflammation, the immune response, wound healing, and prevention and treatment of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases‘, says:

“Multi-disciplinary research has revealed that electrically conductive contact of the human body with the surface of the Earth (grounding or earthing) produces intriguing effects on physiology and health. Such effects relate to inflammation, immune responses, wound healing, and prevention and treatment of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.”2

Yet another study from NIH quotes:

“The research suggests that this disconnect may be a major contributor to physiological dysfunction and unwellness. Re-connection with the Earth’s electrons has been found to promote intriguing physiological changes and subjective reports of well-being.”3

So what even is grounding anyways?

Earthing or grounding, put into simple terms, is living in contact with the earth’s natural surface charge.  Through this process, it naturally discharges and prevents chronic inflammation in the body. 

So I already know what some of you are thinking, ā€œI live on earth, so I’m grounding all the time.ā€ Yes you live on earth, but no you are not grounding, and here is why:

Many decades previously, as a human race, we walked around barefoot and even slept on the bare ground; in essence, we had that direct contact of skin to earth. Nowadays, we have lost that connection to the earth and this has caused deteriorating health and has increased inflammation in our bodies. Though it is ideal to walk around on the earth barefoot all the time, this isn’t very logical for most. Luckily, there are grounding mats that can mimic this effect.

Grounding mats work by plugging into just the grounding portion of an electrical outlet, this causes electrons to pass from the earth through the ground wire of the home. This creates the same effect as walking around outside barefoot and gives some amazing benefits.4

Well how does it work?

Grounding is an essential lifestyle that we have lost, it directly affects our bio-electrical nature. This means that there are natural frequencies from the earth, that we speak of as waves of energy caused by motion of subatomic particles, called free electrons. Electrons have a negative charge and the earth gives a limitless and continuously renewed supply; by having contact with the ground, it allows your body to naturally receive these electrons. When your body absorbs these electrons, it reduces electrical imbalances in the body. It also reduces the inflammation in the body by neutralizing radicals that cause inflammation and multiple diseases.

If you still aren’t convinced about grounding, or want to know more, here is a link to the movie.
