If you find yourself suffering from the harmful effects of EMF overexposure, you’ve likely stumbled across grounding. Earthing (also known as grounding) has been getting a lot of attention within the past few years. Many health conscious people love the topic of grounding, and there is an increasing body of research linking earthing and EMF health effects.
It is possibly one of the best ways to protect yourself from a whole host of health issues, including damage and negative health effects resulting from exposure to EMF radiation. The best thing about grounding is that it is absolutely free to give it a try. There are however, a few things you’ll want to keep in mind if you plan on making grounding one of your new sources of EMF protection.
What Is Earthing?
Grounding is putting your bare feet in direct contact with the ground. The Earth is an electrical planet. This means there is a current flowing through it. We as humans, are bioelectrical beings that evolved to live with exposure to the earth’s natural electrical fields. There are electrical systems within the body that are crucial to our health. Your nervous and cardiovascular systems are two perfect examples of this.
With this in mind, being in direct contact with the ground would allow a person to “absorb” the energy from the Earth. Imagine it as getting Vitamin D from the sun by soaking it up through your skin. This is the same way we get energy from the surface of the Earth, through the bottom of our feet.
Now, it may not seem like this energy would be much help against the harmful effects of EMF, but grounding is actually quite a powerful practice. Grounding has the legitimate ability to restore and help stabilize our bioelectrical systems within the body. Remember, these are the systems that keep us alive and healthy.
Grounding helps put these processes back in their current state and allows the body to begin healing naturally and more easily. This means reducing inflammation, which is a major cause of disease, as well as reducing pain.
You might also notice yourself feeling calmer and having a better night’s sleep. Have you ever noticed that you felt much more relaxed and at ease when you take a walk through nature? The process is very similar to grounding.
Even if you are not barefoot in contact with the ground, you are still receiving negative ions from being in nature. Negative ions are actually very important in helping us to recover from exposure to EMF. This is one key way in which earthing and EMF are critically intertwined.
Why Is It Important?
Grounding in today’s age of technology is almost critical. On a day to day basis, we absorb so much radiation and are exposed to dangerous levels of EMF regularly. The body stores this energy inside of us and can cause many health issues that could be prevented if we just took the proper precautions.
At times it may seem like it’s impossible to avoid being bombarded with EMF. That’s why grounding is a great way to stabilize the body after exposure. You can look at it as a way of coping with the technologies of the world.
Grounding puts the body back into its roper state of functioning. Most people wear shoes that are made with a rubber sole. This actually stops the feet from being able to absorb the energy put off by the Earth.
Being “disconnected” from the Earth while absorbing dangerous amounts of EMF isn’t a good combination. Grounding regularly can really help you feel better in a major way.
How Can It Help Reduce EMF Symptoms?
Earthing plays a very important role in reducing the symptoms of EMF exposure. This is because EMF radiation is positively charged. (Don’t mistake positive for a good thing!) This is why we want to expose ourselves to more negative ions, which can be found in abundance in nature. You absorb these beneficial ions as an electric current through the feet when grounding.
Ions are simply molecules that have either gained or lost an electrical charge. They are created in nature and move through the air and water. These are the molecules that are responsible for the feeling of calmness and relaxation we feel during and after a walk through nature or the beach.
These ions help us to feel less stressed and at rest because they are working wonders within the body. They enter our bloodstream and increase the levels of serotonin. This helps to alleviate stress, depression and anxiety, which are often some of the main symptoms of EMF exposure.
The more time spent grounding and in nature, the more we reduce the negative effects of radiation. Ideally, it is best to practice grounding on a daily basis. Going barefoot on grass for at least 30 minutes a day can have profound impacts on your overall health and wellbeing.
