Grounding or ‘earthing’we call the act of bringing your feet into direct contact with the ground, without any kind of footwear in between. There are many studies which show us what happens to our bodies when we walk barefoot. Not wearing shoes can make us feel better and healthier.
In fact, it is also a cultural belief in many countries across the globe. But most people prefer wearing some form of footwear except for when they are at the seashore.
But it is true that if we were to revert to our natural state, footwear would not be necessary. Making direct contact with the Earth allows you to take in more negative electrons ensuring that your vibration matches that of our planet.
The Journal of Environmental and Public Health released a recent study which argues that grounding can be used as part of the treatment for many afflictions, ranging from insomnia to heart troubles. It puts the process on par with essential like fresh air, clean water and exercise.
Other studies have gone on to discover that earthing can help regulate the flow of blood to the face, it can help regulate our nervous and endocrinal systems, and can prevent injuries from becoming inflamed by cooling down the body, reducing pain and preventing the person from being affected by functional disabilities. Other effects include slowing down the aging process and strengthening the cardiovascular system.
How you can ground yourself
The components of our footwear are also used to make wires because they serve as a cushion that absorbs the electricity. But they also prevent the natural flow of electrons from reaching you. Look for footwear made of leather or just don’t wear any when you’re walking over meadows, earth, cement or even ceramic and sand. Any other surface will prevent you from earthing.
In the mid-1900s a German Professor called W.O.Schuman, along with Herbert Konig discovered that the earth resonates at exactly 7.83Hz. Thus they named the frequency of the Earth’s vibration after him. However, not many are aware of the full potential of this discovery and the connection it has to our very existence.
