The Earth Provides Us With Healthful Electrons
Our homes and offices today are filled with electronic devices, wireless connections, microwaves, fluorescent bulbs, microwaves, cell phones and cell towers, power lines, domestic wiring, and electrical appliances, which makes our bodies have a positive charge.
And many of us live and work in high-rise apartments and offices. With more distance between us and the earth, our body carries an even higher charge.
New research shows that the lack of electrons in our bodies may be what's causing an increase in chronic pain, inflammation and other modern health issues.
The earth’s surface is negatively charged, full of free electrons we can absorb by earthing.
EARTHING is the practice of touching your skin to the earth, such as grass, sand, dirt, mud, a river, lake, or ocean.
DIFFERENT WAYS TO EARTH:
Garden - Take your gardening gloves off (unless you're working with something prickly). Planting and moving the dirt around will help you earth. If the ground is smooth with no stickers, garden barefoot. You might even create a special earthing garden; somewhere to walk barefoot or even just a bench to sit on with your feet on the ground.
Trees - as long as the tree is growing from the ground and not in a pot, you can use it to earth Lean against a tree, hold onto the branches or hug the trunk with your bare hands or arms.
Beaches - Walk barefoot or lie directly on the sand. Walking in wet sand is even better.
Grass lawns - Walk barefoot or lie in the grass (some part of your skin needs to be bare. Again, wet grass is better; I love walking in the grass early in the morning when dew is still on the ground.
Clay - One person on the Earthing Forum says he keeps a small tub of real clay on hand when he can't walk barefoot outdoors. He pulls out some clay, kneading it over and over again, adding water as needed. Whether this works as an earthing method or not, it certainly would be therapeutic.
If you can't find any clay from the ground, you might have a hard time finding any "real" clay to buy. I've spent some time looking at art supply companies online and all I can find are synthetic clays. Perhaps you can dig some dirt out of your yard, put it in a bucket, add water, and create mud.
