A study on grounding suggests that practicing it will give you amazing health benefits. These include decreased inflammation, improved immunity, faster wound healing, and prevention and treatment of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.
I know that very few of you actually know what grounding is, so let me explain. Grounding, also known as earthing, is a therapeutic technique that involves activities that electrically “reconnect” you to the earth.
There are lots of ways to do it, but let’s go over what the studies say first.
Grounding and Earthing Studies
“Multi-disciplinary research has revealed that electrically conductive contact of the human body with the surface of the Earth (grounding or earthing) produces intriguing effects on physiology and health. Such effects relate to inflammation, immune responses, wound healing, and prevention and treatment of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.”NCBI
“Specifically, grounding an organism produces measurable differences in the concentrations of white blood cells, cytokines, and other molecules involved in the inflammatory response. We present several hypotheses to explain observed effects, based on current research results and our understanding of the electronic aspects of cell and tissue physiology, cell biology, biophysics, and biochemistry. An experimental injury to muscles, known as delayed onset muscle soreness, has been used to monitor the immune response under grounded versus ungrounded conditions. Grounding reduces pain and alters the numbers of circulating neutrophils and lymphocytes, and also affects various circulating chemical factors related to inflammation.”NCBI
It’s pretty clear that grounding has many benefits to improving your overall health. This is something I would personally use if I was recovering from an injury.
Now that we’ve established that grounding works, let’s talk about how to do it.
Grounding: How To Do It
There are three primary methods of grounding. These are:
- walking barefoot
- lying on the ground
- submerging in water
Doing all three will drastically improve your overall health and mood. You can incorporate them into your daily life pretty easily as well. In the morning, a great way to start off your day is by walking barefoot in nature. During your walk, you can lay down on the ground as well.
Submerging in water is best done by going to a lake or the ocean near wherever you live.
Leading A Healthy Lifestyle
To wrap it up, grounding is one of the most important things you can be doing for a healthy lifestyle. Aside from that, you should be doing other things to be as healthy as possible.
