Twenty cases using medical inflammation imagery confirmed grounding reduces inflammation. The researchers conclude: “Our main hypothesis is that connecting the body to the Earth enables free electrons from the Earth’s surface to spread over and into the body, where they can have antioxidant effects.”
Every day, we do battle with villainous electromagnetic fields. Environmental electromagnetic fields of 50-60 Hz (which we happened to be chronically exposed to at home and at work) increase our exposure to free radicals and accelerate oxidative damage in the body.
Grounding, or earthing as it’s sometimes called, is the practice of walking barefoot and connecting to the earth. The earth releases its free electrons into the soles of your feet. These electrons then travel up into your body, where they set to work shielding you from the electromagnetic fields and radiation that emanate from our endless electronic devices—cell phones, computers, Wi-Fi, etc.
Research also shows that grounding reduces inflammation and protects against inflammation-related diseases such as arthritis, atherosclerosis, heart attack, type 2 diabetes, asthma, MS, lupus, and irritable bowel disease.
