Earthing is not just another wellness trend, that is here today and gone tomorrow. Earthing is an evolution in wellness trends; Earthing is the future, as well as the past. For millennia, further back than our written history goes, humans have known that connection with nature is vital to our health and wellbeing. It is only in modern society that we have steered away from our natural connection to the earth.
It's a simple concept. The earth has a natural flow of energy and our bodies are mostly composed of water and minerals, which are excellent conductors. Grounding is simply making conductive contact with earth. Every time your bare skin touches the earth, that energy flows into your body, boosting your energy and rebalancing your bioelectric system. Earthing helps maintain balance in the body, creating a better immune response and promoting its ability to heal. It reduces inflammation and stress, improves sleep and circulation, and balances cortisol levels and free radicals.
Life is really all about balance. What happens when something is unbalanced? It falls. Things like breathing and digestion are processes our body does to keep us alive, and they are all run by bioelectrical systems. The side effect of these bioelectrical systems running in the background is the production of free radicals. Basically unbalanced positive electrical ions running around your body looking for a negative charge to balance them out. These imbalanced positive charges can wreak havoc on your body, creating illness and disease. When we come into contact with the earth, we plug into an unlimited supply of negatively charged electrons. The negative charge of the earth balances out the bioelectrical imbalance inside of your body and the end result is a stable and balanced environment, supporting normal functioning in all the body systems, as well as promoting better mood and mental health as well. There is a reason they call it grounding. The electrical system that is your body needs to be grounded, just like the electrical system in your home needs grounded.
With the numerous and instantaneous health benefits that simply kicking off your shoes and walking barefoot on the earth has been proven to provide, We couldn't object to taking a few minutes out of our busy day to get outside and reconnect with nature. We are more disconnected from nature than ever before and I believe our physical and mental health are both suffering from that disconnect. Earthing can be way more than just a wellness trend in 2021. Earthing can be the start of an evolution in the way we look at overall health and our relationship with the world around us. It's so simple and there are literally no detrimental side effects. Even if you're skeptical about earthing, you don't really have a foot to stand on in the way of arguing against giving it a try (pun totally intended). If you're looking for a way to live better and feel better in 2021, Earthing is the one wellness trend to try out.
Some of its benefits include:
1. Reduces inflammation:
Grounding has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body by neutralizing the positive charge of free radicals and donating negatively charged electrons to the body.
2. Improves sleep quality:
Grounding helps regulate the body's circadian rhythms and improves sleep quality by reducing inflammation and stress.
3. Combat migraines:
Grounding can help relieve migraine symptoms by rebalancing the body's bioelectric system and relieving muscle tension.
4. Improves heart function.
By balancing the body's bioelectrical system, grounding improves heart function and reduces the risk of heart disease.
5. Reduce stress:
Grounding helps reduce stress by regulating cortisol levels in the body and promoting calmness. Improves blood circulation:
6. Improves the immune system:
Earthing helps strengthen the immune system by reducing inflammation and improving the balance of the body's bioelectrical system.
7. Improves Mood and Mental Health:
Earthing helps improve mood and mental health by reducing stress and promoting a sense of calm.
8. Reduces Chronic Pain:
Grounding helps relieve chronic pain by reducing inflammation and improving the balance of the body's bioelectrical system.
9. Promotes Healing:
Earthing helps promote healing by reducing inflammation and improving the balance of the body's bioelectrical system.
