Science studies state that the earth's surface contains natural electric charges which are experienced by many people walking on wet grass and on the wet sand of the beach. The researchers have also introduced many convincing pieces of evidence which show that the earth’s electrons rejuvenate the body by recharging and thinning our blood, enhancing immune function, reduces inflammation, pain and stress.
Nowadays people have lost connectivity with the earth and its power of healing. The earth’s energy is blocked when the synthetic soles are used in shoes and when we live elevated from the ground. The researchers have introduced a powerful remedy to make us get connected with the earth, called EARTHING (also known as grounding). It provides all benefits as walking barefoot on the ground does, in the form of conductive grounding mats, bands, and others to be used in routine working life indoors. The earthing benefits can be felt within minutes and involves no efforts to make it useful in our lifestyle.
Every person may experience it differently. Some may feel better changes such as good sleep, more energy and relief from pain. Some of them suffering from chronic inflammation and other diseases and not use to be on ground for years may feel temporary symptoms of detoxification due to efficient body functioning.
Yes, in the present era the world is experiencing a global epidemic of pain conditions and inflammation diseases, insomnia and chronic fatigue. The remarkable strategy of earthing is found to make the body function better and to eliminate epidemic pain and inflammation along with chronic diseases and dysfunction. It also reduces the stress caused by inadequate sleep and other diseases and enhances the quality of life.
As per the reports, there are the least probable events dying from the lightning strike. Homes are very really hit by lightning as it is an unpredictable and challenging phenomenon and they usually take the path of least resistance to the ground such as conductive systems like pipes, electrical wires, telephone cable lines which are grounded to the earth. Follow the standard lighting safety guidelines directed by weather authorities and disconnect the earthing devices and do not use them during lightning and thunderstorms.
When a person becomes grounded to the earth the current flow beyond the acquisition charge transferred to the body cannot be constantly measured. Once the body is grounded the influx rate changes and the electrons are continuously absorbed by the body which is needed to maintain the same electrical potential as the earth and to restore which is lost as a result of the metabolic process. As the body is in a grounded state it appears to draw electrons which need to maintain topped up a homeostatic level and compensate with the internal electrons. It is hard for the body to develop electron deficiency i.e. chronic inflammation when in contact with the earth. This absorbs electrons reduces metabolic and immune response free radicals which vary between people as per their lifestyles and activities. The result of the ongoing study indicates that the current is very low typically less than nano-ampere (one billionth of an ampere).
The footwear is made with rubber or plastic composite soles that do not conduct the earth's electric energy. The thin soles made of leather without any other material can be used as grounding. Leather is not conductive but when the foot perspires and the moisture permits the conduction of energy from the earth through the leather to the body if the leather is thin enough. Very thick soles may not allow the moisture through to connect the body. In addition, walking on the damp ground also build moisture on the leather-soled shoes. The grounded shoe also provides the benefits to get directly connected on the earth such as the surface is like Grass, soil, sand, gravel, and unpainted concrete.
Floors made of wood or vinyl will not ground you like the or not conductive. If the floor has unsealed concrete or a stone-built directly on the earth will keep you grounded. The unpainted Tile attached to the concrete slab will also permit grounding but the tiles with the glazed finish applied on the plywood or any other kind of wood, plastic or vinyl understructure do not permit the grounding effect. The floor conductivity with the use of continuity testers can be checked for grounding effects.
Initially, some people may feel temporary discomforts such as cramps or soreness but this discomfort will last for a few days or weeks.From our experience of many years, we have found that these effects result from more efficient functioning of the body of self-healing and detoxification mechanism.
You will start feeling better and more energized when the discomposed fades away. Gradually increase the exposure so your body becomes accustomed more slowly to the earth’s energy. If still, you feel discomfort, stop grounding and again begin with shorter exposure.
The better circulation at the extremities level can often generate warmth in the body. Grounding can help to develop a rose your skin colour and some feel very warm in bed and sweat a lot. These people with a density to hold need a lot of sheets to feel warm in bed. The body temperature is normalizing which means that they can use fewer sheets but still feel nice warmth at the bed.
Some blankets develop sparks when pulled off of earthing sheets and are also reported to get a slight shock when touching and earthing products. Such products must be prevented where we can expect such sparks from them. The minor shocks after walking on synthetic carpet and the sparks from touching any fabrics are the expressions of harmless static energy charges building upon the body which are harmless.
If you find the outlet checker and the outlet working properly but while touching the ground in the product you feel shocked it may be just an electrostatic shock which is no danger at all. On the other hand, there might be some uncomfortable sessions such as the mild shocks which is due to the person who has or disturbs autonomic nervous system which creates a situation for electro hypersensitive. Such a person may feel a small amount of high-frequency electricity than others which are perfectly normal in a functional house grounding system. In such situations, we recommend these people avoid exposure to electromagnetic fields as much as possible and use a grounding rod placed in the soil outside and run a wire inside to ground the earthing products.
If the electrical devices are in good working order then the earthing sleep products can be used. To warm up the electric blanket or electrically heated mattress pad or water bed we would suggest you turn them off before going to sleep and minimize the exposure to Electromagnetic fields. As turning off or on in these products will not change any function of earthing sleep products or alter the benefits which are expected from grounding.
In grounding effects, the magnet does not interfere and may even help the electrons of grounding to get distributed faster in the body and thus the earthing mats over the magnetic mattress pads can be used. But the grounding effect may be lost if you place the mat under the magnetic pad so there must be direct contact with the skin for the electrons to enter into your body.
Earthing produces beneficial effects quickly when conductive patches are placed on the bottom of the feet which moves electrons from the Earth up into the body. The speed of this activity has “clocked” which takes about 20 to 30 minutes to reach sites of pain and inflammation, such as a shoulder. A painful knee would respond faster as it is closer to the grounded feet. That pain starts to ease when the electrons arrive at the pain site. The influx of electrons gives a powerful boost to the body’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory defences.
The rapid neutralize free radical molecules create chronic inflammation, arresting the destructive action on healthy tissues, and leading to a reduction of pain. Medical thermal imaging has shown decreased inflammation in minutes after people are grounded. The changes in the laboratory have been measured which indicate that the body is functioning better. People with pain often feel relief in varying degrees − from a little to a lot, and to even disappearance of the pain − just by planting their bare feet on the ground outside for a half hour or forty minutes. Sleeping grounded through the night produces many beneficial results, such as better and deeper sleep, more energy during the day, and less pain.
When we start grounding such as being barefoot for at least a half-hour, you will likely notice that your pain is less.
The fastest way, in our experience, is with the use of Earthing patches, which can be applied on or adjacent to sites of pain, or placed on the palms or soles of the feet.
Grounding indoors is the same as walking barefoot outside. No one with a pacemaker or defibrillator or stents has been advised not to walk barefoot outdoors. But due to these sophisticated new devices, it is essential to consult with your physician before starting grounding.
No studies have been done to determine this possibility. Earthing improves the function of mitochondria, the powerhouse of all cells which helps mitochondria to produce more energy, which is expected that all body repair mechanisms will function better.
After starting Earthing, there is better control on blood pressure. A study published in 2018 by a cardiologist showed that grounding patients with hypertension improve blood pressure.
Yes. Earthing products do not interfere with your new hip or knee and if you ground yourself immediately after the surgery, you will likely recover faster.
We rarely go outside barefoot, we wear insulating shoes and we sleep on elevated beds in houses made of wood. Earthing products were created to address the issue of comfort, convenience, reality, and practicality. The products are basically “extension cords” that bring the Earth’s energy outside into the office and home inside – simulating being barefoot outside.
Earthing products do not run on electricity, it comes in direct contact with the Earth, through the ground port of a properly grounded outlet or from a ground rod placed directly in the Earth. The grounding hole in outlets was added which connects directly to long ground rods placed in the foundations of your building providing very good ground. The electrons from the Earth pass through the outlet hole through a cord and to the conductive Earthing product specially designed for human grounding, giving energy to your body.
It is being reported by the people that they have been zapped by ungrounded laptops (without a three-prong power cord) with a metal-based casing. We have recorded up to 50 V on the surface of the metal-based casing of a particular laptop. Some people will feel these sensations while they are grounded and working on their laptops. If the feeling is not a shock but uncomfortable, Don’t ground yourself while using the computer plugged in, Ground only when the computer is operating on battery mode and Place the laptop directly on an Earthing mat to ground the computer but if still shock feeling is there, contact the service provider.
Earthing must be a routine part of your life such as being barefoot outside on the earth's surface or swimming in the water for more than half-hour every day. Conductive surfaces are found on lands such as soil, grass, sand, gravel, rock and concrete. Another option is to use grounding products when there is no time or the desire to go outside barefoot.
No, as per the historic studies, years ago humans used to walk barefoot on the earth, sleep on conductive animal skin which was turned into fashioned footwear. Our predecessors have undertaken this activity to absorb the natural healing energy of the earth and to prevent the inflammation of bodies. In the late 80s, walking barefoot and sleeping on land has claimed positive health effects.
Earthing improves the potential effects of medication doses and makes physiology function more efficient. Also, it improves thyroid function, Blood pressure, sugar level, blood-thinning effect and thus the dosage of medicines need to be monitored and adjust accordingly. For this, we strongly recommend consulting your doctor and following their guidelines.
There is a huge difference between them. The Earth’s electric field is mainly a continuous static electric field that has influenced life on the planet throughout time whereas the home wiring systems use alternating current.
Magnet does not provide free electrons though it produces some therapeutic effect nor do they provide natural beneficial frequencies of the earth when connected to the body. Whereas the earthing technology connects the bodies with the earth's electrons like a person walking barefoot on the ground.
Water that does not have minerals and salt are poor conductor of electricity and when the salt or certain Minerals are added to the water it becomes conductive as a result of this solution breaks the salt into its components, Negative chlorine and electrically positive sodium.
As such Ocean water provides a conductive medium for Grounding as it is full of dissolved salt and minerals. The water in lakes and rivers are also good conductors though it contains fewer minerals and salt and when standing at their bottom will make you grounded with the earth.
When the swimming pool is in contact with some metal parts such as it drains pipe will provide you grounding benefits. And the tap water in the pool is also conductive as the water is in contact with a metal fixture connected to the ground. Also, the bathtubs and showers provide you with tap water containing minerals and salts which is conductive.
When the water is in contact with the metal pipe which is going down into the ground then you are grounded but if the plastic pipes are used you will not be grounded.
It is very easy to use earthing products indoors and plugs into grounded (earthed) wall outlets or ground rods placed in the soil adjacent to a home. It does not run on electricity and these products come with an outlet checker which is simple to use. It determines whether an outlet is grounded or not and can be used for earthing with the use of a local adapter to accommodate the earthing cord that comes with earthing products.
When the electrons come into your body and equalize with the earth’s potential providing natural and healing energy that tingling sensation may be felt. It accompanies an initial re-energizing; Re-synchronizing and normalizing effect which has an impact on inflammation damage in the body. Earthing reduces the inflammation damages where you are more likely to feel sensation in the body.
A similar tingling effect or sometimes felt by the people who walk on wet sand at the beach barefoot where the sensation usually diminishes after 15 to 30 minutes. It may also be felt again when earthing is resumed after stopping for some time as every person may feel some variations but not to worry as you are not being electrocuted.
These stressful situations can readily impact sleep though somebody is grounded as the sleep is subjective and its quality is often related to life stresses.
For the people who have experienced relief and improvement from grounds, their gains began eroding if they stopped earthing.
The people a century ago were constantly in contact with the surface of the earth.These days many people or not been in contact with Earth for so long and suffer serious health conditions such as inflammation-based diseases, cardiovascular problems, Alzheimer’s, hormone deficiencies etc.
To heal these problems the earthing needs to be get started slowly and increase the exposure to the surface of the earth starting with 15 minutes and increasing slowly over some time. There is no limit to how much a healthy person can be grounded and too much earthing for them is impossible. We recommend being grounded for at least one hour a day to stay healthy.
Our body knows exactly what to do with what the Earth provides us as when we connect to the earth the number of electrons absorbed is governed by the amount of body needs to balance the electrical charges of the body which is in the perfect amount. There is always a need for electrons in many metabolic processes including the basic process of cellular energy production. If the grounding is on a routine basis and for hours it is very hard to develop chronic inflammation which causes the most common chronic disease. The people who are normally relatedly healthy people for whom the earthing does not work. But the grounding is needed to stay healthy with no exception. The unhealthy person can feel some strange sensation at the beginning as it is a part of the healing process as the body normalizes the inflammation goes down. When you still feel too uncomfortable, stop sleeping and working on the ground. Restart it slowly and increase your exposure.
The socks are made of synthetic material that may block the connection of the earth but the thinner socks are made of natural fibre such as cotton can facilitate the ability of the earth's energy in your body.
When you make direct contact with the Earth, either by being barefoot outside or using an Earthing product indoors, electrons from the Earth enter your body and reduce the free radicals and inflammation. The effect of Earthing is significant because medical research has found that many of the chronic and debilitating diseases of our time have the same cause: chronic inflammation. Scientists now realize that pain and disease arise in our bodies where an inflammatory response has taken place, but the inflammation has not completely stopped after the healing process. .
A low level of chronic inflammation can continue for years, damaging normal tissues and wasting energy. The human immune system evolved over a long period during which we were in virtually constant skin contact with the Earth. As humans no longer walk barefoot and wear shoes that insulate us from the Earth’s energy.
It is an excellent strategy for preserving the quality of life and slowing immune-senescence as earthing maintains a functionally “young” immune system. Thus Earthing greatly reduces oxidative stress and inflammation which could increase life expectancy and improve health.
The longer you continue to ground yourself, the more benefits and vitality you can expect to see. The body is most receptive to healing during sleep, so this is the most beneficial time for grounding. But, it is usually best to go slow and start grounding for short periods as sleeping grounded the whole night gives them strange sensations such as itching, tingling, rashes, etc. You can slowly increase the duration until your body tolerates a whole night of sleeping grounded.
They do not conduct any electric power that operates your lights and appliances. Earthing products and the cords that connect them are designed only to conduct the Earth’s energy to you.
Just leave them plugged in at the outlet unless you are going to move them to another room. Earthing products don’t “run” on electricity. They aren’t running up any bill when you leave them plugged in. So there is no need to unplug them.
No, it does not cause any danger for pets as Animals naturally want to spend time in contact with the Earth. Many have reported that pets indoors are attracted to grounding products and its better for those who have never made contact with the ground outside.
Yes. As long as the outlet is properly grounded, you can insert the cord into the round hole.
Most of the homes have a functional electrical grounding system that interfaces with the Earthing plug-in cord but for old homes outlets that do not have a third hole (ground port), you will either need to use a ground rod or call an electrician to update the wiring. Earthing products come with a simple outlet checker. You just stick it in your wall outlet. Red and green lights verify that the outlet is properly wired for Earthing. You then just plug the accompanying Earthing cord into the third hole and you are good to go. If the house’s electrical system is not properly grounded (earthed) you canuse a ground rod. If it is grounded, you will have to obtain a grounded adapter for the outlets.
