Earthing is a relatively new concept in the field of natural health. It is different than grounding since you actually need to connect to Earth for it to occur. Although many of us have been doing it as a natural course in feeling well, the science of how it works has really not been discovered until recently.
Haven’t you noticed how wonderful you feel after spending a little time laying on the grass or swimming at the beach? There is more than an emotional relaxation going on; there is an actual physical reaction occurring to your body creating an emotional response.
Here’s the simple chemistry of it. The surface of the Earth has an excess of free electrons, but you, on the other hand, have an excess of free radicals. What happens when free radicals meet free electrons? They are attracted to each other and the free radicals are neutralized. This makes Earth the most potent antioxidant in the world. And it’s FREE!!!!
Sure, you could buy a bottle of antioxidant vitamins at the health food store, but it isn’t necessary. Mother Earth is waiting for you to connect and receive nurturing health at your convenience. Earth will restore the body’s natural electrical state, calm the nervous system, reduce inflammation, and improve circulation. No pill in the world can do all that.
There are several things that happen when you Earth yourself.
1. Reduction of pain.
2. Reduction of anxiety.
3. Emotional and physical detoxification.
4. Reduction of cortisol levels and resynchronizing its secretion to be in alignment with the natural 24-hour circadian rhythm profile. This will create less stress and better sleep for deeper healing.
5. Increased fluidity of red blood cells allowing more oxygen transport to all parts of the body.
Earthing is very simple to do and if done for 20 minutes or longer daily, you will see your whole life shift for the better.
