Grounding, also called earthing, is a therapeutic technique that the ground and nature electrically reconnects you to the earth. This technique is based on grounding physics to explain how electrical charges from the earth can have positive effects on your body.

Schumann frequencies from the earth have positive effects on your body by absorbing harmful ions from the body that have accumulated from chronic exposure to EMF/EMR.

When we live primarily indoors or walk outside wearing rubber soled shoes, we prevent our feet from being able to absorb the earth’s schumann frequencies which are necessary for our bodies. Rubber soles are not conductive, but our bodies are.

There are many types of grounding tools a person can use such as grounding equipment connected to a metal rod stuck in the ground, quality grounding mats, grounding sheets or blankets, grounding socks. But the most foolproof and effective method of grounding is actually being outside walking barefoot on the ground, lying on the ground, wading in water outside in a lake, ocean, river, stream - being connected to nature.

People have reported improvement from inflammation, fatigue, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, cardiovascular disease. In the late 19th century, a back-to-nature movement in Germany claimed many health benefits from being barefoot outdoors, even in cold weather. In the 1920s, White, a medical doctor, investigated the practice of sleeping grounded after being informed by some individuals that they could not sleep properly “unless they were on the ground or connected to the ground in some way,” such as with copper wires attached to grounded-to-Earth water, gas, or radiator pipes. He reported improved sleeping using these techniques. However, these ideas never caught on in mainstream society.
