Earthing (also known as grounding) is a scientifically proven method that displays the benefits of bodily contact with the earth’s natural charge.

Grounding is known to have shown significant improvements in blood flow, reducing inflammation, pain, insomnia, wound healing, stress, and stabilising the physiology of a person at the deepest levels.

Earthing (or grounding) is a simple method of reconnecting the conductive human body to the earth’s natural and subtle surface electrical charge. It’s as simple as taking your shoes off!

Soil, grass, sand, ocean, rocks, and even mud are all inexpensive and easy paths to wellbeing. Similar to the way vitamin D restores and energies our bodies from frequencies harnessed from our sun, so too does the electrical charge from the earth to recharge us as human beings.

Earthing restores our primordial electric connection that has been lost over time and manages to correct our ‘electron deficiency syndrome’ that has been thought likely to be a factor in many health disorders such as inflammation, respiratory issues, and auto-immune conditions.

One study took a group of volunteers to look at how grounding affects heart health. The group had man-made grounding patches (with an electrical charge) placed on both their hands and feet. Blood measurements were taken before and after grounding to detect changes in red blood cell fluidity. Results showed a major decrease in blood cell clumping after grounding which indicated significant benefits to heart health.

Another study was conducted to understand the benefits of earthing in regard to muscle healing post-exercise damage. Scientists measured the creatine kinase; white blood cell counts as well as pain levels both before and after grounding. Again, results showed in blood analysis that the grounding indeed reduced both muscle pain and damage, indicating it influenced the body’s healing capacity.

A 2004 study looked at the effects of grounding during sleep via the use of earthing mats and found that “grounding the human body to earth (“earthing”) during sleep reduces night-time levels of cortisol and resynchronizes cortisol hormone secretion more in alignment with the natural 24-hour circadian rhythm profile.” 

Interestingly, the changes in sleep quality were most apparent in female participants. 

The researchers also found that participants reported less pain and stress.

It only takes 10 minutes a day to see the benefits of grounding. You can sit, stand, lie down, walk or even just place your hands in mother nature’s soil. Allow your skin to connect with earth’s electrons to impact your immune markers and bring your body into balance.

Give it a go!



  1. This is a lovely article, and a reminder of how vital nature is to us humans. Its our recharge, our life force, and we need to be in it now more than ever.
