The Earth is like an enormous battery that carries subtle electrical charge. Most everything in the electrical world is connected to it for safety. Think of the electronics in your home, which connect to a ground wire going into the Earth. The same goes for human beings, which are bioelectrical beings. With the exception of humans living in industrialized societies, all living things on the planet are connected to the Earth’s grounding electrical energy. Being isolated from the Earth by the non-conductive materials in our shoes and flooring, and not living close to and sleeping on the Earth, we’ve become disconnected. Re-grounding to the Earth has demonstrated the following benefits in scientific research:
- Lowering inflammation
- Improving circulation
- Reducing pain
- Improving mood
- Regulating sleep, alleviating insomnia
- Lowering cortisol and stress
By simply walking barefoot on the Earth or on conductive surfaces, we can restore our grounding.
