Throughout most of evolution humans walked barefoot and slept on the ground, largely oblivious that the surface of the Earth contains limitless healing energy.
Science has discovered this energy as free-flowing electrons constantly replenished by solar radiation and lightning. Few people know it, but the ground provides a subtle electric signal that maintains health and governs the intricate mechanisms that make our bodies work-just like plugging a lamp into a power socket makes it light up. Modern lifestyle, including the widespread use of insulative rubber or plastic-soled shoes, has disconnected us from this energy .
A practice called “earthing”, walking around barefoot or putting any body part in direct contact with the ground, introduces the planet’s powerful, amazing, and overlooked natural healing energy and how people anywhere can readily connect to it. Earthing may decrease pain and improve heart health. When you are earthing you’re absorbing the earth’s negatively charged electrons. They act similarly to antioxidants, balancing out positive free radicals that contribute to inflammation.
Walk barefoot to ground yourself to the earth.
Lack of grounding has a lot to do with the rise of modern diseases as it affects inflammatory processes in your body. The physical disconnect with the Earth creates abnormal physiology and contributes to inflammation, pain, fatigue, stress, and poor sleep. By reconnecting to the Earth, symptoms are rapidly relieved and even eliminated , recovery from surgery, injury, and athletic overexertion is accelerated.
Grounding thins your blood, making it less viscous. Virtually every aspect of cardiovascular disease has been correlated with elevated blood viscosity. When you ground to the earth, your zeta potential quickly rises, which means your red blood cells have more charge on their surface, which forces them apart from each other. This action causes your blood to thin and flow easier. By repelling each other, your red blood cells are also less inclined to stick together and form a clot.
Just 20 minutes of earthing eases pain and inflammation while 40 minutes begins to reduce blood viscosity.
To enjoy these benefits, go shoeless in your garden or wiggle your toes in the sand or come to our salt cave and walk on the granolas of Polish and Dead Sea Salt on thecave floor. This is great reflexology on your feet. Come give it a try!
We offer salt therapy in our nature inspired salt cave as well as a variety of massage therapy spa services in our healing arts rooms. Such as couples massage, therapeutic massage, hot stone massage, energy work, reflexology, and body scrubs.
