The Great Earth Dilemma
Have we lost sight of our positive intentions for living a more simplistic lifestyle?
s there science behind earthing and grounding techniques? Yes, and it’s solid enough to make you want to dig your toes into the grass daily.
Every chemical reaction, any rearrangement of molecules that happens anywhere ever, involves electrical charges, attraction, and repulsion.
A growing body of scientific evidence shows that the disruption of the body’s charge is a health concern, and doctors should start paying attention.
Read on to dig through the science behind earthing and learn some techniques to try along the way.
When you were little, did you ever shuffle your socked feet along the carpet, then zap your little brother with just a light touch?
Of course not. Kids don’t do that. 😉
If you did, hypothetically of course, you’ve felt the effects of earthing, or grounding.
Chances are, the concept of this article sounds a little hippy dippy to you. You may have pictured someone standing barefoot outside to be one with the earth’s energy, and you wonder what the point is.
Is there science behind earthing? Yes, and it’s solid enough to make you want to dig your toes into the grass daily. Read on to find out about the benefits of earthing and how you can use grounding mats, grounding sheets, earthing shoes, and the good ‘ol outdoors to reset your body systems.
Before we get into what it all means, there’s a basic premise of physics that helps it all make more sense: you, and all people, animals, plants, and inanimate objects are electrical beings living in an electrical world. Everything that’s made of atoms (so…everything) has a net charge that’s either positive, negative, or neutral.
Every chemical reaction, any rearrangement of molecules that happens anywhere ever, involves electrical charges, attraction, and repulsion. Without atoms’ strong attraction to each other through energetic bonds, you and the device you’re using to read this would dissipate into particles.
So, when your body’s overall charge is off, chemical reactions happen that shouldn’t, and reactions fail to happen when they should. A growing body of evidence shows that the disruption of the body’s charge is a health concern, and doctors should start paying attention. More on how your charge gets messed up in a minute.
Does Earth have a cyclical pulsed negative charge
why bother earthing? Some of the science-backed benefits of grounding include:
your body’s main stress hormone (better regulation means you recover from stress quickly, instead of having feeling anxious long after the stressful event)
Neutralizes free radicals, which are highly reactive molecules that damage cells
Reduces some risk factors of cardiovascular disease
Shifts the body from the stressed fight-or-flight mode to the restorative rest-and-digest mode
The best way to ground yourself is to go outside in the dirt or sand barefoot. If you have a concrete or ceramic tile floor in your basement, that works too as long as it’s sitting on a concrete slab and not on plywood boards or other insulators. If you want a little extra earthing action, or live in a big city where the soil is scarce, you have a few options.
