Grounding - direct physical contact with the vast supply of electrons on the surface of the Earth.
We’ve often ignored the alleged benefits of eastern practices such as deep breathing, meditation, and grounding due to lack of scientific research.
With meditation leading the way in changing what science once thought the body and mind were once incapable of, we’re beginning to open our minds on the possibilities of new ways to improve.
For most of us, we need hard evidence.
We’re always looking for anything to improve my mental, physical, and spiritual health. This is something I’ve recently added to schedule to do once a week.
There are new scientific studies showing grounding can have a significant impact on mental and physical health using earth’s electromagnetic field to flow throughout the entire body.
- Chronic Pain
- Reductions in stress levels, tension, and shifts in ANS Balance
- Immune cell pain responses
- Delayed-onset muscle soreness induction
- Heart rate variability
- Reduction in Osteoporosis
- Improvement in glucose regulation
Emerging evidence shows that contact with the Earth—whether being outside barefoot or indoors connected to grounded conductive systems—may be a simple, natural, and yet profoundly effective environmental strategy against chronic stress, ANS dysfunction, inflammation, pain, poor sleep, disturbed HRV, hypercoagulable blood, and many common health disorders, including cardiovascular disease. The research done to date supports the concept that grounding or earthing the human body may be an essential element in the health equation along with sunshine, clean air and water, nutritious food, and physical activity.
