Grounding or Earthing is a wellness practice which involves connecting with the earth by being in nature, walking barefoot on natural surfaces like grass, sand, or dirt, and even breathing in the air from forests, and the ocean. The idea is that this connection with the earth can help to reduce inflammation and promote healing.
Multi-disciplinary research has revealed that electrically conductive contact of the human body with the surface of the Earth (grounding or earthing) produces intriguing effects on physiology and health.
Scientific research over more than a decade indicates that your body can be protected and helped when you electrically reconnect to the Earth. That is, when you are grounded. Here are three examples of potential benefits that have been reported:
1). Decreased levels of inflammation and pain, 2). At the ocean, breathing in fresh air encourages respiratory health and can reduce the symptoms of asthma, promote respiratory health, improve allergies, and skin problems, and stimulate the immune system, and 3). research has just started looking at benefits of grounding daily on improve mood, depression, and the development of a positive mindset.
