Could grounding be the answer to improved energy, sleep and a reduction of inflammation?

What is grounding?

According to fans of grounding, our modern lifestyles have distanced us from connecting to the Earth’s electromagnetic field (also referred to as the Schumann resonance). Today, we spend less time barefoot in nature or working the land with our bare hands. Way back when, our ancestors even slept on the ground! This disconnect may lead to imbalances in our body’s electrical systems, potentially affecting our health.

Grounding is about reconnecting with nature and tapping into the Earth’s healing energy and making the most of the natural anti-inflammatory benefits it can provide. There aren’t a huge number of rigorous scientific studies but there are some positive works coming out as well as a huge amount of anecdotal evidence in its favour.

The benefits of grounding

Earthing has been associated with various health benefits, both scientifically proven and anecdotally reported.

Boosts energy levels:

Grounding can help reduce fatigue and boost energy levels by neutralising the excess positively charged electrons (free radicals) in the body.

Reduces inflammation:

Chronic inflammation is linked to numerous health issues including heart disease, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders. Grounding has been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects by reducing the levels of inflammatory markers in the body.

Improves sleep quality:

Many of us struggle with poor sleep quality due to stress, electronic devices, and other modern-day distractions. Grounding can help improve sleep by regulating circadian rhythms and reducing stress levels.

Improves circulation:

One study suggests grounding reduces blood pressure in participants with hypertension.

Incorporating grounding into your life

To experience the benefits of grounding, you’ll need to find a way to incorporate it into your daily life. Here are some simple ways to connect with the Earth’s energy:

Go barefoot and walk on grass, sand, or soil whenever possible. Feel the connection between your feet and the Earth beneath you.

Take breaks during the day to sit or lie on the ground. Whether it’s in your back garden or a local park, allow yourself to fully relax and absorb the Earth’s energy.

Spend time in the garden or tending to plants. Digging in the soil and nurturing plants provides an opportunity for grounding as you connect with the Earth’s energy.

Consider using grounding mats or sheets that allow you to connect with the Earth’s energy while indoors. These devices are designed to mimic the effects of direct contact with the Earth’s surface – they plug into the earth through your wall sockets – or, if you don’t fancy that idea, you can buy earthing kits, which are essentially a rod that you put into the ground attached by a very long wire to a small plug that plugs into a grounding mat or sheet.

If you feel that you need that extra support to get your energy  levels up, sleep sorted and inflammation down, and the effects of stress or just general busyness gets in the way of your efforts to help yourself build daily healthy habits to tackle these challenges, I warmly invite you to book a chat with me using the link below.
