Standing on the earth with our bare feet – Earthing!
Really!! You thought your hippie days were over.
So why would you want to do this? Well, in the last few years, inflammation has been getting a lot of attention in the medical field. It is being recognized as a major trigger of chronic pain and many major health disorders, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s to name a few. Our bodies are inflamed. They are on fire.
But when you walk on grass, sand or dirt barefoot aka Earthing, electrons enter your body through your feet. And researchers are finding out that these electrons are some of the most powerful antioxidants available.
Natural antioxidants are produced by your body regularly, but the rate at which it does this decreases as we age. To make up for this, it’s important to find other sources to get these much needed antioxidants. And one of the best ways, aside from eating healthy foods, is by Earthing.
Our bodies are conductive. We are able to transmit electricity. The free radicals in our bodies which lead to disease are positively charged. However, the Earth is negatively charged. By bringing the two together, we can balance our internal electrical systems. It’s these systems that transfer nutrients, make our heartbeat and communicate between the brain and the body.
We have become increasingly distant from the Earth. We don’t eat as much food from the earth as years ago. Food is not meant to come in packages. We wear rubber and plastic shoes, we drive rather than walk even for short distances, our homes and businesses have carpets, metal, glass and plastic. We are surrounded by technology which causes more electrical imbalances on our body systems. We are bombarding our bodies with contaminates while ignoring one of the biggest health benefits so easily available – the Earth.
Did you ever lay on the grass and look at the stars? Or walk on the sand? And wondered why you felt more relaxed? You were grounding yourself and connecting to the charges from the Earth that your body needs.
But not only does Earthing make you more relaxed it can:
- Increase your energy
- Help you to sleep better
- Ease inflammation
- Increase blood flow
- and Balance all your body systems
So what are you waiting for? There’s no special equipment needed. No specific time to do it. No waiting for a doctor’s appointment or a prescription to be filled.
Just go outside, stand on the grass barefoot, take some deep breaths and just soak in all that the Earth has to offer us. Reconnect to Mother Earth.
It might seem New Age but it’s really mankind’s oldest form of medicine.
And it’s free, will never run out and your body will thank you.
