The Benefits of Grounding 

The scientific term of Grounding (or Earthing) refers to connecting to the Earth via direct contact, e.g. by walking barefoot on its surface. Grounding is beneficial to our health, as during this process electrons are transferred from the earth to our body. This has numerous scientifically proven benefits such as:
  • Reduced pain and inflammation in the body
  • Stabilization of cortisol levels, the stress hormone
  • Decrease in depression, anxiety and irritability 
  • Faster wound healing 
  • Reduction of inflammation within 30 minutes of grounding 
  • Reduction of chronic inflammation and chronic disease
  • Increased metabolic activity 
  • Immune boosting properties 
  • Improved sleep 
  • Normalization of circadian rhythms 
  • Increased energy 
  • Antioxidant and anti-aging benefits, through neutralization of free radicals 
  • Decrease in delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) after exercise 
  • Increased blood oxygenation
  • Reduced blood glucose levels

It’s apparent that our disconnection with the Earth’s surface is contributing to a myriad of health issues which are becoming increasingly common, from chronic disease and inflammation to insomnia, depression and parasitic overload such as candida.

We need to change our mentality now and reclaim our health, through diet, exercise and reconnecting to the earth one step at a time.
