How to start Earthing:

Earthing (or grounding) is the act of taking your shoes off and placing your bare feet on the Earth (yes sand counts, no pavement does not). This bodily contact with the Earth’s natural electric charge stabilizes your physiology at the deepest levels—You are electrically reconnecting with the earth by soaking up its negative charge and rebalancing your own positive charge.

3 health benefits to earthing include:

  1. Reduces inflammation, pain, and stress

  2. Improves blood flow, energy, and sleep

  3. Generates greater well-being

What’s the science behind it?

“Direct contact with the Earth evens out the positive charge that builds up in the human body, neutralising the internal bioelectrical environment. These electrons also offset creative oxygen – free radicals – involved in the body’s immune and inflammatory responses. If we don’t have regular contact with nature and the ground – which is becoming increasingly more difficult in the modern world, due to rubber-soled shoes and urban living – our health becomes affected due to this build-up of positive electrical charge.”—Fiongal Greenlaw, founder of Wellness Foundry.
