The Science of Grounding: Hype or Holistic?
Grounding (aka earthing) or as I like to call it getting a dose of Vitamin G is becoming quite popular nowadays.
I am the LAST person to jump on the trendy trains as most of them are fads that wind up being a TOTAL waste of energy, time, and money.
Well, grounding is not one of those fads.
And while you might be hearing a lot these days about ‘grounding,’ but do you know what grounding really means and how VITAL it is for your health?
What is Grounding?
Grounding, or earthing, is the art of connecting the human body to big mama earth via the skin.
Mother Earth electrical current is quite healing.
The health and healing effect of grounding is becoming undeniable as a growing body of research is confirming the real results of grounding on the physical body.
Living in our modern world has really disconnected us from the Earth.
When was the last time you walked barefoot?
Even worse, we spend most of our days in shoes with plastic or synthetic souls, making it near impossible to tap into Mother Earth’s energy field.
Why is Grounding Vital for Your Health?
Earthing brings the skin in direct contact with the surface of the Earth, and this enables the body to have a vital electrical connection with the Earth.
By connecting to Mother Earth, you tap into the Earth’s massive reservoir of negatively charged free ions.
The body is positively charged.
Due to pollution and the body’s regular functions, we release an excess of positively charged ions and free radicals into our systems.
Grounding, in a nutshell, balances the positive/negative imbalance in the cells.
And living in our modern world makes the need for grounding more essential.
As we are living our lives, we are swimming in a broad range of electromagnetic radiation releases by our beloved WiFi, Smartphones, PCs: microwaves and other essential appliances.
These electromagnetic radiations interfere with the electrical circuits inside the human body that are performed by the 37.2 trillion cells in our bodies.
This creates an electrical disturbance that can play a vital role in how the body functions.
When we gound ourselves, we reduce the levels disturbances significantly.
Mother earth acts as a massive electrical shield around the body when we are grounded — protecting us from the EMFs emitting from appliances.
How To Do Grounding?
OMG, this is the EASIEST part!
Get barefoot and go sit in the grass or on the ground.
I love grounding outdoors in nature as that helps me immerse myself into Mother Earth’s Negatively Charged Ions.
Another way is to get into a body of water like a lake or the ocean.
When indoors, I remain grounded by using an earthing mat. To read the full details of this magical mat, please go here.

The Healing Effects of Earthing?

From the general feeling of wellbeing to the more dramatic effects of easing pains, reducing blood pressure, managing arthritis, and other maladies.
