In simple words, earthing means a stable connection with the earth. Now it’s so widespread when people spend most of time in the city, living an unconscious hectic life, with dozens of obligations, and start feel disconnected from our main source of energy – the Earth. In this case people have lots of plans, but a minimum of results. The lack of sunlight and the energy of the earth slowly but surely pour oil on the fire of chronic ailments.
It’s not something vague and esoteric, but a very realistic physical phenomenon and all people need to contact with earth surface from time to time – that’s a scientifically proven fact – as direct physical contact with the earth boost positive physiological and emotional changes in people. To be grounded is vital for human physical, mental and emotional health. “Earthing” or “to be grounded” means interconnection with the earth at level of electromagnetic radiation. Artificial soles of our shoes literally separate us from the energy of the planet, so one of the best ways to be grounded is to walk barefoot on any natural surface – ground, sand, grass etc. At the same time, earth is the main source of antioxidants for humans.
Why is earthing essential?
Experts proved that electrons on the planet’s surface deactivate free radicals in a human body, which is used as a conductor, and electrons are directly transferred through it, where they stabilize extremely unstable radicals and protect against oxidative stress.
Recent studies proved that contact with the ground boosts the human energy potential, activates all vital functions, stimulates rapid healing of wounds and decreases stress. The study, published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, found that earthing leads to a synchronization of cortisol secretion, which makes its levels more coordinated with a normal rhythm. And as we all know, cortisol is a hormone of stress.
