Ground Yourself to Slash Sleeplessness, Belly Fat, and Stress.

The environment, like the Titanic, is sinking in a sea of Wi-Fi.

We are engulfed in a growing maze of biologically disruptive electromagnetic frequencies that leads to sleep disturbances as well as belly fat, blood sugar imbalances, cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment, changes in cell membrane and calcium metabolism function, headaches, fatigue, chromosome aberrations,  accelerated aging, thinning skin, autoimmune problems, and mood disturbances.

It’s coming from our smart meters, cell phones, cordless phones, computers, tablets, wireless routers, networks, microwaves, power lines, and wireless security systems.

Invisible electropollution surrounds us 24 hours a day, interrupting the body’s natural flow of energy. And for some, the pollution has reached the point of toxicity, creating obesity, irritability and even illness. The DNA in our cells recognizes electromagnetic fields at the lowest levels of exposure and produces a biochemical stress response activating heat shock proteins that increase free radicals, resulting in a whole slew of inflammatory and unhealthy conditions. Watch this video with Dr. Martin Blank to learn how electropollution can actually damage DNA>>

Since it’s impossible to escape these modern day assaults, one of the most effective ways to avoid and mitigate the effects of electropollution is through Earthing technology—revolutionary lifestyle products that allow the Earth’s healing and protective energy to flow into our bodies during the day and throughout the night when our bodies are in repair mode.

The Healing Energy of Mother Earth’s “Vitamin G”

Throughout time, humans have strolled, sat, stood, and slept on the ground—the skin of our bodies in constant physical contact with the surface of the Earth. Today, our modern lifestyle has disconnected us from the Earth’s balancing energy.

Most of us are unaware that direct physical contact with the Earth transfers natural grounding effects—”Vitamin G”—the missing link to health and overall wellness. Science has proven that the Earth is teeming with negatively charged electrons. When connected to the Earth, these electrons—nature’s most abundant source of anti-inflammatories—instantaneously begin to neutralize the positively-charged free radicals that create inflammation, stress, and disease.

Grounding for Health

My close friend and associate, integrative cardiologist Stephen Sinatra, MD, says, “I regard Earthing as the greatest health breakthrough in all my years in medical practice. Regular grounding (another name for Earthing) restores the body’s natural electrical state, calms the nervous system, reduces inflammation, and improves circulation. No pill on Earth can do what Mother Earth does!”

Inflammation—the culprit in chronic health problems from obesity to cardiovascular disease to cancer—is no match for Earthing. Electrons from the Earth act as natural antioxidants by neutralizing positively-charged inflammatory free radicals.

Fluctuating cortisol levels is a key reason behind poor sleep. 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. 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.”

Get Your Vitamin G

In this day and time, we don’t walk barefoot and we no longer 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, replaced with synthetic plastic or rubber soles.Earthing Bed Pad

The good news is, now we can connect ourselves to 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!)

Here’s an example of what people typically discover when grounding themselves…

  • “My husband and I can not believe how well we sleep on this sheet. I have had the most vivid dreams and no longer get up in the middle of the night.”
    – Chrissy
  • “Nine weeks using the grounding sheet and I am pain free! I even lost weight because I am more active and feeling better!”
    – Mary S.
  • “After using the Earthing pad for one day – that evening I experienced the best sleep I’ve had in awhile – previously I woke up with pain in the deltoids muscle – but not after using the pad for just one day! After several days of usage the best word I can use to describe the feeling throughout my body is “fluidity” of movement. I have arthritis in my spine, hands, neck and also fibromyalgia. I just ordered the bed pad and can’t wait to continue my Earthing experience during sleep.”
    – Diane Lee
  • “Earthing is absolutely the best source I have found. I have lowered my blood pressure. Using the Earthing Sheet I have lost 2 pounds a week. I have been more active because I feel better. My range of motion is better. I sleep so much better. My life has improved since Earthing!”
    – Mary
  • “I was willing to try anything to help with symptoms of adrenal exhaustion, it all made sense. The other reviews were inspiring. I wore the bands the first night while sleeping and woke up the next day feeling a little better. I am skeptical and not always willing to give credit right away. I have been wearing the bands for a couple of weeks now and feel like I have reversed my symptoms. I haven’t felt light hearted in a really long time, and now I do. My daughter calls me her robot, because I am always “plugged” into the wall. I would definitely recommend all of the earthing products!”
    – Brandie Cook

New Frontiers…

As the research grows, so do the benefits of reconnecting to the Earth. Besides sound sleep, tamping down inflammation and balancing cortisol, preliminary evidence suggests that it may provide the solution to pain relief, thinning blood and improved blood pressure, normalized heart rate, faster recovery from intense athletic activity, as well as helping to combat metabolic syndrome.

The beauty of these products is that you can be grounded in apartment buildings, high rise office buildings and condos, as long as the electric wiring is up to code and the wall outlets are grounded. You can simply plug your Earthing products directly into the wall outlet.

The natural blood-thinning and metabolic enhancing effects of Earthing, may magnify the effects of medicinal blood thinners and thyroid medications: Individuals taking Coumadin should consult with their physician before use. Individuals taking thyroid medication including Synthroid and Armour Thyroid should watch for signs of overstimulation, including heart palpitations, and may need to consult with their physician to reduce medication dosage.

I believe that Earthing offers the most expedient and science-based solution to the shadow side of the wireless revolution and all of its adverse health effects.

As I have said before, “Earthing ranks right up there with the discovery of penicillin!”

    I can see how the Earthing products would be easy and efficient, but what about actually going outside? Can I get some benefit by being on my hands and knees while gardening, or would I have to sleep on the ground all night long every night? Somebody must have done some kind of study before developing these products.

    I love the Earthing products, but can’t always be ‘plugged in’ to get the benefits. Is there a personal shield item to protect me when I am on the go all day??

    • Debbie Myers

      I love the fact that we are now studying the effects of the earths magnetic energy, but I don’t understand having to be plugged in. Nikken is a Total Wellness Company that has a magnetic sleep system, magnetic insoles and various other magnetic technologies. It also has other aspects of wellness such as “living water”, an air system, and more. You can put the insoles in your shoes and be grounded all day without being plugged in. You don’t plug in the sleep system either. Nikken has been helping people stay grounded for many years. I have been using these products for 14 years now. Our power chips and sports bracelets along with magnetic energy have far infra red and negative ion technology. I can wear it and go, no plugging myself in. Maybe this would be another option. Let me know if you are interested or have any questions. I have been a wellness consultant with this company for 14 years.

    Hi Monica: Walking barefoot, lying on the ground, and even touching the ground with your hands and knees provide direct contact with the healing electrons that function as natural anti-inflammatories directly from Mother Earth. There is a plethora of studies about the benefits of Earthing that are mentioned in the Earthing book.

    Hello Monica: Thanks for your post. Here is a wonderful link to the most recent studies regarding Earthing.

  6. Marty Zucker

    Earthing involves being in contact with the natural, gentle electric field that globally permeates the crust of the planet. Thus, it is fundamentally different than being in contact with magnets. This same electric field is known in the electrical world as “ground” or “earth.” It stabilizes electrical systems, appliances, equipment throughout the world. The Earthing discovery has revealed that this same source stabilizes the countless electrical systems that govern the way the physiology functions. As an example, think of the brain and nervous system, the heart, and the immune system. The whole body works electrically, in fact.

    Modern societies have disconnected themselves from many aspects of Nature, including the very ground beneath our feet. We wear shoes made of rubber/plastic composites that insulate us from the Earth’s electrodynamic surface. We sleep on elevated beds. In previous times, and in fact, throughout virtually all of history, humans were in direct contact with the Earth for most of their lives. We evolved in contact with our electrical planet. We are bioelectrical beings living on an electrical planet.

    We believe this increasing disconnect from the Earth is an overlooked source of inflammation and chronic disease. We also believe that reconnecting to the Earth is a very simple and profound remedy for many of the chronic health problems besetting modern society.

    The Earthing story, and the discovery and science behind it, along with dozens of testimonials, can be found in the Earthing book, as well as on our website at
