When creating your healthy home, remember to go outside and walk barefoot!
"Earthing" or grounding creates well-being benefits of better sleep and reduced pain. It transfer's the Earth's electrons from the ground into the body.
The surface of the Earth itself is an overlooked global resource for health maintenance, disease prevention and clinical therapy. The Earth's surface has a limitless and continuously renewed supply of free electrons and can create an internal bioelectric environment for the normal functioning of all body systems. It is important for setting biological clocks regulating diurnal body rhythms such as cortisol secretion and neutralizing reactive oxygen species (ROS) involved in the body's immune & inflammatory responses reducing acute & chronic inflammation.
Throughout history, humans mostly walked barefoot or with footwear made of animal skins. They slept on the ground or on skins.
Through direct contact or through perspiration-moistened animal skins used as footwear or sleeping mats, the ground's abundant free electrons were able to enter the body (which is electrically conductive). Through this, every part of the body could equilibrate with the electrical potential of the Earth, thereby stabilizing the electrical environment of all organs, tissues & cells!
Since the 1960s, we have increasingly worn insulating rubber or plastic-soled shoes instead of traditional leather fashioned from hides. This has separated us from the Earth's energy field and we no longer sleep on the ground.
