Our planet Earth, seen from space as this beautiful blue marble, holds within it great energy in the form of negative electrons, and 60 miles above it in the ionosphere, another layer of energy, positive electrons, largely the result of the sun rays' interactions.
Now let's consider our selves, this human body which, from the time synthetic materials and rubber was invented, has been insulated from the free abundant energy that is within Earth. We can connect and harvest this energy that can bring balance and wellness into our body - How? You’ve got to stop insulating yourself. We live in a house, we walk out with shoes onto well paved roads, we work inside a building, we travel in a vehicle, we return to our well insulated homes and we repeat.
Grounding or Earthing, is the act of walking freely, barefoot on the soil, the earth, the unpaved grounds, the grass. Earth is endowed with electrons, these electrons are absorbed through your feet. Grounding supports the organ system of our body down to the tissues. Our body is electrical, the surface of earth is charged negatively. The ionosphere, 60 miles above Earth, is positively charged. What our bodies are lacking in is the negative charge, and that’s where grounding comes in. When we connect to the Earth through a conductive surface, there is a transfer of electrons slowly going through the body which will result in low levels of inflammation, thus reducing pain and helping heal the body. When the body is grounded, you can not have inflammation.
Studies have been made by scientists and physicists, and the reports support the many benefits of grounding. Earthing (or grounding) literally stops the fires of inflammation. Many have discovered the benefits of this ground breaking phenomenon (no pun intended). Research has been conducted on the effects of grounding, while it was first laughed at, experiments have shown the change in people’s bodies after only hours of grounding. Much of today’s chronic aches and pains stem from inflammation, reduce inflammation in your body and you will reduce many ailments. Today's well established profit based main stream health care will not embrace that which will not help increase profits.
But you have no need for prescription or doctors’ approval, take off your shoes and enjoy your grassy yard or neighborhood park, if you live near the beaches, take time for a walk on the beach. The walking, the fresh air, the ocean aroma, the tranquility of the greenery around the park will not only appease you, the electrons shooting up the soles of your feet will change your inner state, physically, as inflammation will go down, with time you will begin to feel the difference.
Part of a wellness practice is healthful organic foods, a good night sleep, gratitude, nature walks and now you can add Grounding to the list!

PSS: the grounds you bare your feet on should be free of pesticides.
