CONTACT WITH THE EARTH (EARTHING), APPEARS TO BOOST THE BODY’S OWN SELF-REPAIR AND HEALING MECHANISMS & CAN HELP REDUCE CHRONIC INFLAMMATION AND STRESS WHICH CAN ALSO RESULT IN A GOOD NIGHT'S RESTFUL SLEEP.
The human body is primarily electrical. Everything in our body is electrical first and chemical second. Standing barefoot on the earth grounds us and makes us electrically stable. Just think back to when you walk barefoot along the beach and how relaxed that made you feel! 'Earthing', as it's name implies, is simply about being connected to the earth. This sounds a bit 'hippyish' and ‘alternative’, but nothing could be further from the truth. Earthing is about protecting ourselves from the huge increase in 'electro-pollution', electro-smog' or 'electro-stress' that surrounds us all every minute of the day and night as well as helping to reduce inflammatory diseases.
When physically in direct contact to the Earth with our skin, we are connected to a vast ocean of free flowing negative electrons held by the Planet. This direct connection has been with us for thousands of years. These electrons are constantly being replenished by solar radiation and lightening strikes from all around the planet and produce a frequency called the "Schumann Resonance", which refers to the frequency of the electromagnetic field of the earth, that our bodies are normally synchronised with.
Nowadays we are becoming dis-connected from this vast free ocean of electrons, due to the types of insulated shoes we wear when outside, as well as the insulated buildings we live in.
When we are dis-connected from the vast free ocean of electrons, we lose our 'ELECTRON SHIELD'. Our bodies are then susceptible to absorbing Electro Magnetic Fields (EMFs) from many modern sources like wi-fi networks, mobile phones, computers, electrical grids, electrical gadgets, house wiring etc. These EMF's induce voltages in the body and, because the body is insulated from the earth, the voltage is held in the body (we can easily test for this voltage).
This body voltage in turn creates electrical interference with the body's sensitive electrical system and contributes towards inflammatory diseases like arthritis, diabetes, IBS, heart disease, strokes etc as well as poor sleep, stress and pain. Some people are more sensitive to the 'Electro-Stress' than others, but it can still have a negative affect on our health.
As soon as we re-connect our skin with the earth, this potentially harmful body voltage drains immediately to earth and we regain our electron protection shield. Most people are not be aware of any feelings when being Earthed however your body is definitely benefiting from the uptake of free electrons which has a huge antioxidant effect on the body. It is this powerful antioxidant effect which helps to reduce inflammation in the body.
So 'Earthing' physically connects us to the vast ocean of free negative 'electrons' in the Earth. These negative electrons, apart from helping to protect us from electro-stress, also act as powerful anti-oxidants in the body, helping to reduce the massive increase in sickness from 'inflammatory diseases' that have increased dramatically over the last 30 years.
A recent discovery by an electrical engineer in the USA has now made it very easy and 100% safe to be 'earthed', whist we sleep at night, as well as during the day.
Our bodies are excellent conductors (we are roughly 70% water) and due to the large increase in EMFs from electric gadgets like mobile phones, wi-fi, microwaves, electric wiring, radio alarm clocks, computers, laptops, mobile phone masts, electical sub-stations etc ... our bodies easily pick up these EMFs and store them as an induced voltage.
We can easily test our electrical charge by using a simple electrical voltage test meter. As mentioned earlier, ideally our body voltage should be in harmony with the Earths natural 'Schumann' Electric field that is below 350mv or 0.3 volts and averages out at 2mV or 0.02 volts. In reality, our induced body voltage can range from 1 volt up to 60+ volts. Even at the lower level of 1 volt that is 500 times the average earth voltage.
Unfortunately we are generally unable to discharge this voltage that is induced, since we live in insulated buildings and on mainly wear rubber or synthetic soled shoes that prevent the induced voltages from discharging to earth. All electrical systems require an earth for them to work properly, so why not us - especially since we are primarily electrical systems?
Is Electro-Stress the common factor in the huge increase in diseases that are making us all so sick? At the start of the EMF surge, back in the early 1980's, previously unknown auto immune diseases and environmental illnesses like lupus, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue started to come to light.
Neurological diseases soon followed - Alzheimers, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinsons started to increase dramatically. Certain cancers began to suddenly rise such as melanoma, testicular, lymphoma, breast and prostate cancers. In the nineties, diseases like diabetes, autism and attention deficit disorders rose dramatically.
Over time, Earthing also has been shown to have a calming effect on people suffering from autism. It is also shown to help sufferers sleep better and promotes better speech and social skills. This helps to lessen the stress on the family and is a totally natural and simple potential solution.
Sleep, depression and mood disorders have now become commonplace. In the 1970's only about 4% suffered from sleep issues. It is now closer to 60%. It should be no surprise that the top selling pharmaceutical drugs are for pain, depression, and sleep. What is more alarming is that no progress has been made to find the root causes. Theories abound on the causes but none are conclusive.
By 'Earthing', you can return your body's natural voltage to the levels that it has flourished in for the last few thousand years - especially when you sleep. This is surely good common sense. Why risk the unknown health implications of high levels of electro-stress induced voltages.
NOW, you don't have to stand barefoot on the beach or walk on the grass to get the full benefits of Earthing. High quality, safe, everyday products have been developed that allow you to be earthed whilst you work or whilst you sleep.
These earthing products are all 100% safe, with no side effects, no pills required, painless and non-invasive.
Lack of Sleep = Loss of Health. Sleep loss affects our body's Immune System. This in turn makes you more susceptible to colds, coughs and flu. Research has also shown that less that 7 hours of sleep a night makes you more likely to be obese!
We all sleep roughly 6 to 8 hours a day, which is when our bodies go into self-repair mode. Being earthed whilst we sleep, appears to BOOST our body's self-repair and self-healing mechanisms as well as optimising our circadian rhythm and our Cortisol levels (which influence our energy and stress levels). When our Cortisol levels are normalised we tend to get a good night's restful sleep. Earthing has also been shown to normalise the body's pH. For optimum health, our blood pH should ideally be slightly alkaline, but for most of us it is slightly acidic. Raising the pH level of your body from acidic to more alkaline will assist your immune system to fight off bacteria, viruses, fungi, and degenerative illnesses. Look at our Alkaline Water Filters page for more information on the correct body acid/alkali balance.
This Is How It Works:
About 15 years ago, in the USA, a cable engineer called Clint Ober, realised the possible health advantages of earthing the body. Over the next few years and after exhaustive tests, he then put together a range of simple but effective products to enable people to earth.Every house, by law, in the UK requires its electrical circuits to contain an 'earth' pin (the top pin of three on an electrical plug in the UK). This earth pin is a 'direct connection' to a metal rod that is literally driven deep into the ground (earth) for every electrical circuit. Clint Ober realised that this 'true earth connection' is located everywhere in our homes and could be easily utilised. He developed a plug that had the 'live' and 'neutral' pins as insulated plastic so that NO current was used when it was plugged in, but the earthing pin was used. The earth pin on the plug was then connected by a thin wire to his earthing products. He built in a resistor, to the earth section of each plug, to stop any earth feedback so that the system is 100% safe.
One of his main products, which has taken the USA by storm, and is now making it's way across the pond, is the Earthing Bed Sheet. This is a high quality Egyptian cotton fitted sheet that has in excess of a third of a mile of very fine soft 'silver thread' woven in to it. It has a small 'popper' clip connection on its edge that then attaches the sheet to the wire that comes from the earthing plug. So by simply using the fitted earthing sheet as the bottom sheet on our beds, as soon as we touch the sheet, all the potentially disruptive electrical charge that we are holding in our body is totally dissipated to 'earth'. The direct current (DC) voltage of the earth creates, in effect, a natural electron shield (faraday cage) on the surface of the body. This natural shield then prevents environmental 50-60 Hz electric fields from creating electron disturbances in the body that elevate free radical levels and promote chronic inflammation and related chronic pain. So simple, yet brilliantly effective and has been dubbed ‘one the greatest health re-discoveries of our time’.
So, by simply going to sleep on a special natural Egyptian Cotton fitted base bed sheet, that is then connnected to the 'earth', via a thin insulated wire that connects to your normal earthing socket near your bed, you get the same effect as walking barefoot along the beach, but whilst you sleep ... and it is 100% safe. Tens of thousands of these earthing sheets are now in daily use in the USA (where they were developed a few years ago) as well as in many countries around the world.
EARTHING VIDEOS ...We have added four very informative short videos on Earthing. The first is a talk with "Clint Ober (Earthing Founder) and Dr Christy Westen". The second is especially interesting and is entitled "If you can't sleep, here's why!" and goes into more detail about the anti-inflammatory process and health benefit. The third is entitled "The Greatest Health Discovery Ever?" and the fourth is a video I made that demonstrates the high voltage levels that our bodies can hold when in our homes and when we sleep at night.
WHAT ARE GROUNDING / EARTHING SYSTEMS?
'Grounding' or 'Earthing' reconnects our bodies to Earth's natural surface energy. Grounding/Earthing enables our bodies to become calmer and more balanced as well as accelerating health and healing. This sets you up for the perfect nights sleep.
If you are a poor sleeper who has restless nights, hot flushes, and wake up still feeling tired, then please read on ... we have the perfect solution for you. But that is just one part of the story, as there are other really important HEALTH benefits as well.
Here is a short 'Trailer' from a new independent feature film, to be released in 2014, called "Grounded", which shows the powerful impact of earthing on the inhabitants of a small Alaskan Town. If you wish, you can purchase the DVD at http://www.earthing.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=1877
GROUNDING / EARTHING EXPLAINED ...
The concept is that when grounded, we absorb negatively charged free electrons, that help neutralise some of the free radicals in our bodies. We all naturally generate free radicals when we exercise and by what we eat and drink. But an excess of free radicals can damage our cells. We can neutralise the excess free radicals by grounding ourselves and tapping in to the vast ocean of negatively charged free electrons from mother Earth.
Earthing acts in the same way as an anti-oxidant and will help to reduce inflammation in our bodies, allowing the body to self-heal itself much quicker. Recent research shows that arthritis is an 'inflammatory' disease, so making sure that your body has access to a plentiful supply of negative free electrons, that can neutralise the excess free radicals in our bodies, is really important.
WHAT IS INFLAMMATION?
Without inflammation, wounds and infections would never heal. Once the injury or illness has been dealt with, the body uses anti-oxidants (electrons) to switch off these free radicals. Looking at it another way, the free radicals are the 'fire' and the anti-oxidants are the 'fire extinguishers'.
When our bodies are lacking enough anti-oxidants to switch off the free radicals, sometimes the inflammatory response continues, even when the initial injury or illness has passed. This then manifests itself as 'Chronic Inflammation'. Also, the great enemy of 'ageing' is inflammation as it degrades our tissues and organs. Much of this is down to what we eat and drink. When you consider that nearly every cell in our body is regenerated every few months, then a change in our diet can have a positive effect very quickly.
If you have an anti-oxidant deficiency (electron deficiency), you are going to have some form of Chronic Inflammation.
BUT, if you have enough anti-oxidants (free electrons), it is almost impossible to have Chronic Inflammation.
You get anti-oxidants from various types of food that you eat like fruits, berries, green leafed vegetables, carrots, broccoli, purple onions and garlic etc. as well food 'supplements' that you take. BUT the LARGEST source of anti-oxidants is from the EARTH and they are FREE. We just need to tap into them by earthing ourselves.

Unfortunately in our high stress society our Cortisol responses to stress do not always return to normal, resulting in a state of 'chronic' stress. This lowers Immunity, increases Blood Pressure and suppresses Thyroid function amongst other things. So it is important for Cortisol levels to be 'normalised' after the occurrence of a 'fight or flight' response.
Grounding your body whilst you sleep has been shown to be highly effective at normalising your Cortisol levels, leading to a restful nights sleep.
Using grounding sheets or grounding pillows on your bed will also help to protect you against harmful Geopathic and Electro Stress EMF's.

We are all different and have differing physiologies. Some people will have a quick and positive reaction, whilst for others this may be slow or even unnoticeable, depending on many other factors that Earthing is unable to influence or overcome.

EARTHING WHILE YOU WORK
USEFUL RESEARCH ARTICLES & REPORTSIf you are new to Earthing there is a very informative article at: http://earthinginstitute.net/new-to-earthing-some-important-reminders/
POSSIBLE MEDICAL ISSUES / CONTRAINDICATIONSEarthing is nothing more than the equivalent of standing or walking barefoot or sleeping on the ground. It is totally natural.
Earthing does have a blood thinning effect, so if you are taking any form of Blood Thinner like "warfarin" then consult with your Doctor and tell him what you are doing, since you want to guard against excessive thinning.
Please see the 'Medical Considerations Report' for possible contraindications at: http://earthinginstitute.net/medical-and-medication-considerations/
If you are taking multiple medications you should NOT start Earthing until you have talked about it with your Health Professional / Doctor. This is because, when the body is working better, you may not be requiring the dosage of medications that you are currently taking, and as such you could overdose. This is easily remedied by talking with your Doctor and possibly reducing the dosage of your medication.
