Reconnect to the Earth daily.
As a society, we seem to be so disconnected. We view moments happening right in front of us through the screen of a phone while we snap photos, we spend our “social time” online, and we don’t get out and about in the great outdoors nearly as much as we’d like.
As you’d imagine, this is taking a toll on our health and well-being.
Most of us are unaware that direct physical contact with the Earth transfers natural grounding effects—also called ”Vitamin G.” This process of “grounding” is considered by many to be a critical missing link to health and overall wellness.
Implications of A Disconnected Body
Science has proven that the Earth is teeming with negatively charged electrons. A detachment from these electrons can cause a whole host of problems, including restless nights that lead to lethargic days, seemingly ceaseless stress (along with stress eating), and inflammation—the culprit in chronic health problems from obesity to cardiovascular disease to cancer.
When connected to the Earth, these electrons—nature’s most abundant source of anti-inflammatories—act as antioxidants and instantaneously begin to neutralize the positively-charged free radicals that create inflammation, stress, and disease.
Fluctuating cortisol levels is a key reason behind poor sleep. A lack of sleep then increases more of the stress hormone, stimulating hunger, which interferes with the body’s ability to breakdown carbohydrates properly, thereby leading to sleep-deprived weight gain. But when you’re regularly grounded, you body has assistance to stabilize your cortisol levels.
In fact, researchers in a groundbreaking study in the Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine wrote that “Grounding the human body to the Earthing (‘Earthing’) during sleep reduces nighttime levels of cortisol and resynchronizes cortisol hormone secretion more in alignment with the natural 24-hour circadian rhythm pattern.”
Reconnect for Your Health
When we feel like we need to clear our minds and re-center ourselves, you might think of metaphoric phrases like “getting back to our roots,” or “coming back down to Earth.” In this case, it’s much more literal.
While it’s highly recommended for your well-being to get outside and take in nature, even a beautiful hike won’t necessarily give you a good dose of “Vitamin G” because we no longer walk barefoot or wear hides on our feet. Leather soled shoes which permit the conduction of the Earth’s natural electrons are becoming more and more a thing of the past, and they have been replaced with synthetic plastic or rubber soles.
So, while a stroll out in nature is good for the soul, it won’t give you the same healing qualities that placing your bare feet on a plush spread of grass does. But what about those hot summer days (or overly chilly summer nights) that coax us inside? And, although it’s a nice idea, we certainly can’t sleep under the stars every night. So, how do we connect?
In Your Home and At Your Fingertips
The good news is, we can now experience the Earth’s healing energy just as easily and safely indoors with Earthing technology. Discovered by Clint Ober, a pioneer in the Cable TV industry, it’s one of the most brilliant technological discoveries of the 21st century.
Earthing products are made from conductive fabric and materials—the fitted sheets, half sheets, universal mat, and wrist and ankle bands easily attach to an included ground cord that you can insert directly into the ground port of any electrical wall outlet or connect to an optional ground rod if your home or office does not have ground wall outlets. These Earthing products make it easy to ground yourself indoors while sleeping, working or playing (and it only takes about 3 seconds of set-up time!)
As for me, I enjoy sound sleep each and every night nestled on my Earthing fitted sheet and can truly attest to the positive impact of Vitamin G.
