An earth connection was an everyday reality in past cultures. Dominant lifestyle factors such as insulating footwear, high-rise buildings, and elevated beds separate most of us from direct skin connection with the Earth’s surface.
Multi-disciplinary research has revealed that grounding or earthing, a conductive direct contact of the human body (bare feet, hands or grounding systems) with the surface of the Earth produces significant benefits on physiology and health.
Such beneficial effects have been demonstrated for:
Sleep restoration including time to fall asleep, quality of sleep, wake feeling rested, stiffness & pain and normalization of cortisol levels
Inflammation following injury such as redness, heat, swelling, pain and loss of function
Blood glucose levels, even in diabetic-treated patients
Reduction of high blood pressure
Stress reduction by shifting the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) from sympathetic to parasympathetic dominance and improving heart rate variability (HRV)
Watch the movie, read the articles and make sure you expose your body to earth EVERY DAY. On the beach, in the forest, grass or using grounding systems such as those available on https://www.groundology.co.uk/
