The Science Of Grounding – What Happens To Your Body When You Connect To The Earth (Video)

The art of grounding (putting your bare feet on the Earth) may be even more beneficial than you may realize, here’s some proof to back it up!

By now, you may have come across some information on the health benefits associated with grounding. If you haven’t and you are unsure of what grounding is, it’s the process of connecting your body to the Earth. This can be done either by sitting or walking on the ground without shoes on.

We all spend most of our time walking on the earth wearing shoes with rubber or plastic soles. These materials are insulators, and accordingly we use them to insulate electrical wires. They also disconnect you from the Earth’s electron flow, which we are supposed to be connected to. However, if you wear leather soled shoes (or vegan leather!) or walk barefoot on sand, grass, soil, concrete, or ceramic tile, you will be grounded. If you walk on asphalt, wood, rubber, plastic, vinyl, tar, or tarmac, you will not be grounded.

So the next time you are outside, take off your shoes! You can also use conductive systems while sleeping, working, or spending time indoors for a more convenient and lifestyle-friendly approach.

If you’re thinking that is just too simple and there is no way something so simple could provide so many health benefits, then consider this…

We are bio-electrical beings and our bodies are made up of trillions (maybe more) of atoms that all hold an electrical charge, not to mention all of the other things we come into contact with on a daily basis that also hold an electrical charge. Electricians ground wires when they wire up a house, and we are taught about the importance of grounding electricity in science class, but when it comes to our own body, this is rarely – if ever – even thought about. Luckily, with the help of the internet, the importance of literally grounding ourselves is becoming more common. When you consider how little time we actually spend with our feet on the Earth, with no shoes on or even just sitting on the ground, this may start to make sense. When we are out in nature or going for a walk we have shoes with rubber soles on them – this directly interferes with the grounding process and inhibits our bodies from being able to do so.

Although I knew of the importance and had heard some of the benefits of grounding I was completely blown away as to just how beneficial it actually was, and how many of the diseases and ailments that we are suffering from today could potentially be cured simply from grounding alone – after seeing the following video.

Benefits Of Grounding


People who ground themselves regularly have reported feeling more centered, solid, strong, balanced, less tense and less stressed. Simply, grounding makes you feel good and I can certainly attest to that after making an effort for the past week to do this as much as possible. I’m not sure if it matters but I get the feeling that because my job involves being on a computer and in front of a screen virtually all day, myself and people with similar jobs can especially benefit from grounding. I’ve been feeling a lot more chill and less stressed since starting my own little experiment. Just think of the last time you were on a beach or sitting under a tree at a park, how did you feel? I’d be willing to bet you felt pretty calm, relaxed and happy.

Some Scientific Evidence

Regular grounding can help relieve symptoms of inflammation and pain. A small pilot study  involving 12 subjects was able to indicate that grounding the human body during sleep (often with a piece of metal connected to a wire that is connected to the ground) reduced night-time levels of cortisol and re-synchronizes cortisol hormone secretion to be more in alignment with the natural 24-hour circadian rhythm profile. In one instance, medical thermal imaging was used on a 44-year-old woman suffering from chronic back pain. Images were taken before and after being grounded while sleeping for 4 nights. The images showed reductions in inflammation and the woman also reported, a 30 percent reduction in pain, 70 percent reduction in the pain interfering with her sleep, 30 percent reduction in morning stiffness and soreness and after 4 weeks of continuous grounding while sleeping, she reported an 80 percent reduction in pain, no sleep interference and by 8 weeks she reported that her back pain was gone altogether. Sure, that is one instance, but in all honesty, it is such a simple thing to do if you are skeptical and suffering from pain, at least it’s worth a shot?

Another study also showed how when grounded the diurnal rhythm of the stress hormone, cortisol, actually begins to normalize. Researchers examined the diurnal rhythm of cortisol after sleeping grounded and found a normalization of the rhythm. In addition, the participants of this study reported that they slept better and woke up feeling refreshed.

Grounding also improves your circulation, which aids in the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the tissues of the body, which includes better blood flow to the face. These findings were the result of a study that used a laser speckle contrast camera to quantify blood flow to the face after one hour of grounding.

For more science, you can refer to the article below:

Studies Show What Happens To The Human Body When We Walk Barefoot On Earth

Can You Ground Yourself?

Simply by walking barefoot on the earth as much as possible or by sitting on the grass or ground. To take this even further, you could consider getting shoes that have no rubber or plastic soles or soles made from leather. Quite simply, modern human beings are disconnected – no pun intended – from the earth. This alone may be one of the primary causes for so much of the chronic pain, discomfort and illness we are seeing across the globe.

Consider getting a minimum of a half-hour daily on the earth, you can even sit in your back-yard if that’s an option for you. You can sit, stand, walk on soil, grass, sand or even concrete. These are all conductive surfaces from which your body can draw the Earth’s energy, keep in mind that wood, asphalt and vinyl are not conductive. If this is difficult for you to achieve, there are a variety of grounding products available online that you can attach to your bed, or mats and chairs. If you suffer from pain and inflammation, this simple change might make all the difference.

We would love to hear your experiences! Have you tried grounding and what are the benefits (if any) that you have noticed? Let us know in the discussion in the Collective Evolution Group on Facebook! See you there.

10 Things That Happen To Your Body When You Walk Everyday

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    There are multiple health benefits to be gained by taking a simple walk every day. These benefits are measurable, and if you don't already have an active lifestyle it can be a great way to assist you with your health.

  • Reflect On:

    Reflect on how the human race has become extremely sedentary, and how disease rates continue to climb as a result of the modern human lifestyle.

The human experience has become extremely sedentary, the average human lifestyle in the western world has been linked to multiple diseases and is one of the main causes of why disease rates continue to climb, among many other factors that surround all aspects of human life, like big food, for example. With technology in place and jobs that require tremendous amounts of sitting, there is no doubt that it’s having a detrimental effect on our lives.

That being said, the world is clearly becoming way more health conscious. It’s like we needed this experience of unhealthy food, the corporate take-over of everything, and our motionless lifestyle to knock us out of it. We are seeing a health revolution take place, where more and more people are becoming health conscious, and are always being encouraged to be more active.

Ultimately, we can’t really blame the human experience for our lack of movement, it’s something that all of us have the time to incorporate into our lives in one way or another, and if you’re someone who doesn’t enjoy being too active, a simple walk every day can have tremendous amounts of benefits. As pointed out in the video below, by Bright Side.

If You Want To Increase The Benefits Even More, Walk Barefoot

It’s called grounding, or ‘earthing’ and it involves placing your feet directly on the ground, without shoes or socks as a barrier. Why? Because there is an intense negative charge carried by the Earth, it’s electron-rich, which serves as a good supply of antioxidants and free radical destroying electrons.

A study published in the Journal of Environmental and Public Health titled “Earthing: Health Implications of Reconnecting the Human Body to the Earth’s Surface Electrons” postulates that earthing could represent a potential treatment for a variety of chronic degenerative diseases.

That’s right, many positive health benefits occur as a result of walking barefoot, and these are measurable.

Nature Valley Ad Shows The Down Side Of Children Addicted To Technology

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Technology has impacted most of our lives in a really big way. We use it daily for everything we do pretty much. Kids today, unlike previous generations, use technology more than ever and spend much less time in nature.

  • Reflect On:

    How much is too much technology for young and developing minds? Is it time to reevaluate our children's relationship with technology and get them back into nature?

Technology has become a staple in most of our lives, really, could you imagine life without it? In the video posted below, Nature Valley asks 3 generations what it was that they did for fun as a kid, the answers from the youngest generation may or may not surprise you, but is it time to cut back on the technology and bring kids back to nature?

Technology is not bad per se, that isn’t the discussion here. This is about how we use it.

Before technology, children would look to nature for entertainment. They would play outside on the lawn, go sledding, build forts, and use their imagination to create their own entertainment. Nowadays it’s all too easy for kids to get sucked into technology, there are video games, tablets, computers, cell phones and television, all of which provide a type of escape from the real world. Although, there are many ways that technology is and has been used for good in the world, is the disconnect that it is causing children and adults to part from nature causing more harm?

With the rise of mental disorders and illnesses, is it possible that the answer to these issues is simply to get kids back into nature, more time with self, using their brains to build things, be creative and connect to the energy from the Earth? We already know how effective a simple walk or hike in nature is and how they both can literally change our brains. Nature appears to be much more important than we generally give it credit for.

In my own experience, disconnecting from technology and going camping on my own proved to be a very cathartic and healing experience for me. I’ve come to realize that although being immersed in nature regularly does have a lot of benefits, but even just making time for it at all can cause a positive impact. For many of us who live in cities, with the constant bombardment of noise and of course EMF frequencies etc., just disconnecting for a short period can make a huge difference.

The following video is a brilliant ad from Nature Valley, check it out.

It’s easy to get emotional watching something like this as it shows just how far removed the newer generations are from what has been most natural to children for centuries, simply playing in nature. The children are essentially self-proclaimed tech addicts and get their entertainment by playing video games, watching videos or tv shows, texting etc. Is it time to go back to the basics and start evaluating how detrimental too much technology can be on young and developing brains? You can read more about this issue here, Is Your Child Struggling From Nature-Deficit Disorder?

Is it up to the parents to ensure they are setting proper boundaries with the amount of time their children are allowed to use technology? Or is this the future and something we should simply let happen as a natural part of evolution?

6 Proven Ways to Cleanse Your Liver & Release Pent Up Anger

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In Chinese Medicine our liver is directly connected to anger and unfortunately, we live in a world where our liver is regularly taxed by toxic chemicals. Thankfully there is plenty that you can do without medication to keep this vital organ healthy!

  • Reflect On:

    What toxins are you regularly exposed to and what steps are you currently taking to combat them?

A toxic liver can lead to anger. In Chinese medicine, our biggest detox organ – our liver – is the organ connected to anger. When we work at changing our lifestyles and daily habits, we begin to see it having a positive effect on our mood as well as general health.

When toxicity mounts we have a more difficult time controlling or letting go of our angry feelings. Toxic chemicals accumulate in our bodies because we live in a toxic world. We microwave in plastic, we cook food in Tephlon coated pans, we smoke, we take medication, and eat fried and processed foods.

These food-like products contain toxic chemical preservatives, glyphosate; GMOs and pesticides. Ingesting poison daily results in everything from immune deficiency, mood disorders, lowered mental performance, and even life-threatening cancer.

So, besides avoiding many of the contributors of liver toxicity – what can we do?

1. Eat less added sugar & address possible yeast overgrowth in the gut

Yeast can cause fermentation of food in place of digestion and cause bloating and gas. It can contribute to “leaky gut syndrome” – thus in turn can lead to the production of toxins that may affect the brain and nervous system. Yeast overgrowth can produce alcohol as its byproduct, acetaldehyde, giving us a “hangover” feeling. It can also lead to liver damage, and it prevents the proper detoxification of other pollutants, increasing the toxicity of other toxins.

2. Support the liver with botanicals

Plant medicine like Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root can help cleanse the liver. Both extracts are known to be pretty safe and well tolerated, and toxic or adverse effects observed in the reviewed clinical trials seem to be minimal. Only those with a ragweed, iodine or latex allergy should be cautious with dandelion. (Learn more about milk thistle)

3. Drink organic aloe vera juice

High quality; raw organic aloe vera can be a phenomenal digestive aid. It seals the gut wall, aids in digestion, has anti-inflammatory properties, helps the immune system, and detoxifies the liver, skin, and colon.

4. Cook with more turmeric & black pepper to help the body absorb nutrients better

Black pepper contains a compound called piperine, which increases the bioavailability of food by decreasing activity in the intestinal tract and inhibiting the metabolism of certain enzymes. Better still, cook with lots of turmeric and black pepper together. The combination helps the body absorb more curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric.

This ingredient can heal gut wall permeability due to its amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It also aids in digestion, strengthens the immune system, improves asthma, heals wounds, prevents the progression of memory loss, controls diabetes, improves liver function, lowers cholesterol, and fights cancer. (Note: A great supplement for this that I recommend for is Liver Health)

5. Incorporate liver cleansing foods into your diet

Incorporate liver cleansing foods such as green leafy veggies, avocados, apples, garlic, olive oil, citrus fruit, beets, and cruciferous vegetables into your weekly diet.

6. See An Acupuncturist

Used for thousands of years, acupuncture has been used to detox and balance the liver meridians to reduce anger and other emotional and psychiatric issues.  Simple needless acupressure is often used on children.
