Healing Power of Earth
I’m sure you can recall a time when you were sick and took your first step outdoors after being inside for several days. Do you remember what it felt like? Exhilarating. Expansive. Energizing. There’s a reason nature makes us feel so good physically and it’s not in our heads. It’s in our feet!
Scientists can measure the subtle energies emitted by the earth. Disease states generate positive electrons in our bodies but the earth gives off a regular cycle of negatively charged free electrons. When we connect with the earth in any physical way like walking barefoot in the grass, we ground ourselves with this energy much like electrical or cable wires are grounded into the earth, as well. This stabilizes our body functions.
Research is beginning to show that “earthing” has a powerful impact on hormonal balance, reducing inflammation, stabilizing psychological rhythms, relieving pain and countless other conditions. Humans used to sleep outdoors on the ground and walk without rubber-soled shoes. When was the last time you stuck your toes in the sand? You can learn more about earthing in: “Earthing” by Clinton Ober & Stephen Sinatra, M.D.
The image shows the difference experienced by a patient with chronic back pain after he slept on a device for four nights that generates the same negative electron charge as the earth, known as electron transfer technology or ETT. The result is a complete elimination of inflammation and a return to normal thermal symmetry. You can find more information at: www.earthinginstitute.net
