CONNECT TO THE EARTH AND FEEL BETTER!
You may not be able to 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.
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. It also gives us something you may have never even thought about — an eternal, natural, and gentle energy. Think of it perhaps as vitamin G — G for ground. What does that mean? And why should you care? It could be the difference between feeling good and not so good, of having little or a lot of energy, or sleeping well or not so well.
Throughout history humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground. But modern lifestyle, including the widespread use of insulative rubber- or plastic soled shoes, has disconnected us from the Earth’s energy and, of course, we no longer sleep on the ground. Fascinating new research has raised the possibility that this disconnect may actually contribute to chronic pain, fatigue, and poor sleep that plague so many people.
The remedy for the disconnect is simple. Walk barefoot outdoors whenever possible and/or sleep, work, or relax indoors in contact with conductive sheets or mats that transfer the energy to your body. People who do on a regular basis say they sleep better, feel better, and have more energy during the day.
This simple practice is called Earthing, also known as grounding, and it is both a technology and a movement which is transforming lives across the planet.Earthing is safe and natural, for people of all ages, young and old, but it is not medicine or a substitute for medical treatment. If you have a medical condition, see your physician or healthcare provider.
Want to test it out?
Go barefoot outside for a half-hour and see what a difference it makes on your pain or stress level. Sit, stand, or walk on grass, sand, dirt, or concrete. These are all conductive surfaces from which your body can draw the Earth’s energy. Wood, asphalt, and vinyl won’t work. They are not conductive surfaces. Experience for yourself the healing energy of the Earth at work.
How it Works – The Discovery of Earthing
The remarkable story of the discovery of Earthing began in the late 1990s when a retired cable TV executive started to think about the human body in terms of electrical grounding. For 25 years, Clint Ober had participated in the spectacular rise of the cable industry and his own business–the leading cable installation company in the U.S.–by giving customers images that were superior to broadcast television.What does cable TV have to do with health? The answer may surprise you.
The crisp image delivered by the cable is the result of shielding that prevents signals from leaking out and prevents outside disturbances from leaking in. The cable consists of an inner copper conductor surrounded by a mesh shield. The shield is electrically connected to the Earth (grounded), so that the Earth can either deliver or absorb electrons and prevent the buildup of electrical charges in the system. The potential of the shield equalizes with that of the Earth’s surface, thus protecting and stabilizing the signals flowing through the conductor.
After his retirement, Mr. Ober began to consider how his experience with cable TV might apply to the human body. He realized that most people wear synthetic-soled shoes that insulate their bodies from the Earth’s energy field that stabilizes not only cable TV but all electrical equipment–industrial or residential–throughout the world.
For more than a decade, thousands of people around the world—men, women, children, and athletes—have incorporated Earthing into their daily routines and report that they sleep better, have less pain and stress, and faster recovery from trauma. Earthing immediately equalizes your body to the same energy level, or potential, as the Earth. This results in synchronizing your internal biological clocks, hormonal cycles, and physiological rhythms, and suffusing your body with healing, negatively charged free electrons abundantly present on the surface of the Earth.
This seemingly simple realization inspired a scientific adventure that has resulted in what is perhaps the greatest health discovery of our time.
