Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?

Overview

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.

Overview

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 and, of course, we no longer sleep on the ground as we did in times past.

Earthing introduces the planet's powerful, amazing, and overlooked natural healing energy and how people anywhere can readily connect to it. This eye-opening book describes how 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 and recovery from surgery, injury, and athletic overexertion is accelerated.

This never-before-told story—filled with fascinating research and real-life testimonials—chronicles a discovery with the potential to create a global health revolution.

    Being grounded just makes intuitive sense to me

    I first heard about "Earthing" about a year ago when I read a very interesting article about the subject. I finally decided to buy the book and am delighted that I did. While some may say there isn't enough scientific evidence yet to conclude that being grounded to the Earth provides health benefits, the authors do share quite a bit of clinical data that supports their claims. To me it just makes intuitive sense that the Earth, with its wealth of negative ions that constantly stream from its surface, can be of healing benefit to human beings whose bodies constantly create positive ions (i.e., free radicals) as a result of the various chemical processes occurring within them 24/7. The real-life stories shared by people who have received healing benefits from being grounded are very interesting, and clearly suggest there is merit to this entire grounding concept. I was so impressed with this work that I actually purchased an Earthing Starter Kit, and at this moment have my feet on a grounded pad. I've also been sleeping on a grounded half-sheet for a couple of months now. While I honestly cannot cite some major healing breakthrough (as I don't have any serious medical conditions), my gut feel still tells me that my body is indeed benefiting from being grounded to the Earth. I truly believe that over time Earthing will become a very important healing modality for people and animals as well. My advice is to buy this book and at least learn about the science underlying it; you never know, you may end up being pleasantly surprised should you in fact make it a point to be in actual contact with the Earth more often.

    Our world is full of hidden mysteries long forgotten. Earthing is one of those mysteries. To the founder of this hidden wisdom, I say thank you for the AWAKENING. Clinton Ober to me is one of the PLACESETTERS who without fail pushed through the darkness to the light of awareness. Readers open your inner knowledge and welcome the changes before you. Earthing will balance the pathway to your remembering what we all have forgotten. (SELF)

    Epub Is Badly Formatted

    There are serious flaws in the formatting of the epub as seen on a SimpleTouch, a Tablet, and an iPhone. BOxes with graphics are repeated under text in several locations. Pagination is also faulty

    I tried the technique with a non-electrified ground rod in my ba

    I tried the technique with a non-electrified ground rod in my back garden and a cable that had a 100,000 ohm resistor in it. I got a really bad back that was followed by chronic heart arrythmia! These symptoms are consistent with "stray voltage" exposure. I tested the grounding cable and found that it was acting as an antenna system and that it had many frequencies of energy on it. The technique did not work for me, but I have found stories of people that it does work for. The reason why I give the book five stars is that it does a good job of talking about how uncontaminated ground can make you healthy. Unfortunately, ground in and around cities is commonly contaminated with "stray voltage" and "stray currents" which is well known in the diary industry for its ability to make people sick. Search "stray voltage cows". The technique probably does work in areas that do not have "stray voltage" problems and high amounts of wireless radiation exposures that may induce unwanted frequency radiation into your grounding cables. Be careful!

    an effective treatment modality

    I had long-term celiac disease which was never diagnosed by allopathic medicine. Celiac triggered autoimmune thyroid destruction and toxic gut syndrome, conditions from which I have recovered. However these conditions led to degeneration in my L5-S1 and L4-L5 spinal discs. For years, I would get up in the morning feeling like I had been kicked in the back by a draft horse; I was having to take naproxen and do an elaborate exercise routine after getting up to relieve pain/stiffness. I have now been sleeping on an Earthing sheet for one month, and there has been a very signficant reduction in back pain/stiffness as the result of doing so. Purchasing the Earthing book and sheet, has been worth every penny.
