When is the last time you walked barefoot on the Earth? What if you could improve your health and feel better by walking barefoot on the earth?
This is called “Grounding” or “Earthing” and this is something our ancestors did naturally and everyday.
Today, in our industrialized nations, most people rarely if ever come into contact with our Mother Earth.
You know when you feel so relaxed and sleep so well after a day on the beach?
Part of the reason we feel so GOOD after a day or time at the beach is because we are barefoot and connected to the earth. We are benefiting greatly from a special kind of energy that is present in the ground.
A study published recently in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that grounding can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and heart attacks.
Contact with the earth naturally thins the blood and reduces inflammation. This could result in better blood pressure and blood flow. It also improves sleep!
More benefits of grounding:
- Protection from electromagnetic fields (EMFs)
- Help for chronic pain
- Less muscle tension
- Sense of calm
- Improved mental clarity
- Quicker healing from exercise-induced muscle pain
- Faster immune responses
If you want to know more, there’s movie, The Grounded, that discusses the amazing health benefits that contact with the earth can provide. It’s a true story about an Alaskan wildlife farmer who experiences pain relief through grounding and inspires others in his community to give it a try (they also see amazing results). The results are so fantastic, in fact, that doctors, scientists, and even Apollo astronauts become intrigued.
