The Science of GROUNDING or EARTHING
According to the Earthing Institute, earthing is “connecting to the Earth’s natural, negative surface charge by being barefoot outside or in bare skin contact with conductive systems indoors while you sleep, relax, or work.”
Advocates claim that earthing has many health benefits because going barefoot allows the feet to pick up free electrons that then allegedly course through the human body, detoxifying, cleansing, balancing, harmonizing, and, no doubt, boosting the immune system.
Fact: The Earth carries a negative electric charge of roughly 500 thousand Coulombs.*
Fact: The atmosphere around the Earth has an almost equal amount of positive charge.**
Personally I’m a BIG believer of this and, to me, it makes perfect sense. On one, or more of my walks everyday, with BLUE (my dog) I take my shoes and socks OFF and walk barefoot on the grass or ground. If the grass is wet…even better. Water conducts electricity right. I might be pushing the concept a little far but it works for me. I always find myself sighing within the first few minutes of doing it.
Try it, it is the simplest things to do. Take it a step further and lie on the ground watching the universe. Its makes for an incredible ‘awareness’ of the world around and beyond us.
Besides I love anything to do with the Native American culture.
