Barefoot Ramblings

The surface of the Earth holds subtle health-boosting energy. All we have to do is touch it and become truly alive. In the documentary film Grounded, you can see this amazing phenomenon transform the life of people who had been struggling with health issues like chronic pain, and one man who had been wheelchair-bound for decades is able to walk again.

Even plants are drastically impacted when they are taken away from the Earth’s natural energy. Yet, the act of grounding, or Earthing, as it’s sometimes called, isn’t really an unusual phenomenon at all. It’s actually a natural act that virtually every living creature does instinctively.

Throughout most of evolution humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground, largely oblivious that the surface of the Earth contains limitless healing energy.  Science has discovered this energy as free-flowing electrons constantly replenished by solar radiation and lightning.  Few people know it, but the ground provides a subtle electric signal that maintains health, harmonising the intricate bio-electrical mechanisms that make our bodies work.  Modern lifestyle, including the widespread use of insulative rubber or plastic-soled shoes, and living on concrete floors laid on plastic membranes, has disconnected us from this energy and, of course, we no longer sleep on the ground as we did in time past.

Earthing reconnects us to the planet’s powerful, amazing, and overlooked natural healing energy.  Our physical disconnection from the Earth can create abnormal physiology contributing to chronic inflammation [regarded as a major cause of most common modern diseases], pain, fatigue, stress and poor sleep.  By reconnecting ourselves to the Earth by being barefoot or using earthing devices Symptoms are rapidly relieved and even eliminated, and recovery from surgery, injury and athletic over-exertion is accelerated.  This therapeutic benefit cannot be overdosed and the only side-effect is better health and well-being!
