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 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, 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, and pleasant sensation when they are out walking barefoot along the beach or on a stretch of dew-moistened grass.
Earthing/Grounding 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 healthcare provider.
Throughout time, we humans have walked, sat, stood, and slept on the ground—the skin of our bodies touching the Earth—oblivious to the fact that such physical contact transfers natural electrical energy to the body.
Modern lifestyle has disconnected us from the Earth’s energy, making us more vulnerable to stress and illness. Earthing/Grounding is the landmark rediscovery that this energy upholds the electrical stability of our bodies and serves as a foundation for vitality and health.
In an age of rampant chronic disease, reconnecting with the Earth’s energy beneath our very feet provides a way back to better health.We are bio~electrical beings living on an electrical planet.
The fascinating Earthing study on blood electrodynamics and viscosity has been published online prior to publication in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine. Here’s the link: http://online.liebertpub.com/doi/pdf/10.1089/acm.2011.0820.
