Ever Hear Of Earthing/Grounding?

The concept of "earthing" or "grounding" in the context of human health refers to the practice of direct physical contact between the human body and the Earth's surface, such as standing barefoot in grass or sand. Our bodies build up a charge, and it’s imperative that we discharge. Contacting the surface of the earth allows our bodies to discharge and leads to a more alkaline state in the body. This supports the specific function of the organs of your body, down to the tissues and the cellular function of the entire body. However, the same benefits will not correspond if standing barefoot on asphalt or concrete. Direct physical contact with the Earth allows the transfer of electrons, neutralizing excess positive charge in the body. This process happens almost instantly, so the body only needs 3-5 minutes to reap some of the benefits, although the more often one can contact the surface of the earth, the more benefits they will experience.

Some benefits include:

  1. Reduced Inflammation: Studies have shown that grounding has anti-inflammatory effects by reducing levels of inflammatory markers in the body.
  2. Improved Sleep: Some studies suggest that grounding may help regulate circadian rhythms and improve sleep quality.
  3. Stress Reduction: Grounding may help balance the autonomic nervous system, leading to a reduction in stress and promoting relaxation.
  4. Pain Relief: As a result of reduced inflammation.
  5. Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Protection: Studies have shown that grounding can help neutralize the effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields from electronic devices.

PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. It is a form of therapy that utilizes electromagnetic fields to improve well-being. The therapy involves the use of low-frequency electromagnetic pulses that are applied to the body. If, for some reason, getting outside is not convenient for you, there are companies that produce PEMF mats that allow you to become grounded in the comfort of your own home. Of course, nothing can compare to the Real McCoy, so we urge you to do your best to get grounded outside, but PEMF mats are a great second choice if necessary. The benefits you can experience using an Infrared PEMF Mat are as follows:

  1. Relaxation
  2. Boost Energy
  3. Soothe Muscles
  4. Improve Sleep
  5. Ground
  6. Enhance Focus
  7. Improve Memory
  8. Increase Deep Thought

If you wish to dive deeper down this rabbit hole, we highly recommend sitting down and watching “The Earthing Movie: The Remarkable Science of Grounding”, directed by Josh and Rebecca Tickell. The stories documented in this film are remarkable. One story that particularly caught our attention was about a teacher speaking on a school that had a “grounding classroom” for students with severe behavioral issues. The teacher gave an example of her student with severe autism. Previously, it would have been considered a success if she was able to get the student to sit for 10 seconds. After implementing grounding for the student, she was able to have the student sit for 7 minutes straight!

Incorporating earthing practices into our daily lives, whether through direct contact with the Earth or utilizing PEMF mats, offers a simple yet powerful way to reconnect with nature and enhance our overall well-being. So, take a step outside, feel the Earth beneath your feet, and embrace the healing energies of the natural world.
