Maybe the hippies before us were really onto something… yes and probably on something too.
Research has shown that walking barefoot on the earth, referred to as earthing or grounding, can promote self-healing and improve your mood!
“The human body is electrical first and chemical second” – Clint Ober, earthing expert.
A transfer of negative electrons is allowed into the body from the earth. The earth’s natural and subtle energy embodies an electrical pulse that greatly impacts our bodies.
Inflammation, caused by free radicals (positively charged electrons), can be neutralized by these “free electrons” which are the power of antioxidants and halt other forms of “oxidative stress”.
Experts believe earthing can help improve circulation which has a plethora of benefits. Here are just a few…
- boosting energy levels
- reducing swelling
- distributing nutrients
- ridding the body of toxins
Our neurotransmitter systems, brain, and heartbeat all rely on electrical signals. When our electricity is off our health can be too.
Talk about an easy and accessible way to heal and regulate your body.
You don’t have to live by a beach to do this simple exercise. Any ground will do…
If you choose grass… no not that type of “grass”, hippie… be sure it’s pesticide free. Well actually this rule would apply to all types of “grass”!
Even just taking just 5 -10 minutes a day connecting with the earth could have a positive impact on your health.
Every morning upon waking, I begin oil pulling and go out side to get grounded!
I love this ritual and feel calmer and more relaxed when I practice earthing.
Do you practice earthing? Will you give it a try? Please share.
Live Hippily… and connect with our earth!
