Grounding is not just a trendy technique for calming down, it's a way to prevent and cure diseases.
Grounding is not trendy. It’s necessary to our health to be “naturally” grounded to the earth.
Do you really know what it means and why it is VITAL to practice for your health? Here's the scientific explanation.
The Science of Grounding
Positive and Negative Charge
From a scientific perspective, the idea is that the earth has a mild negative charge to it. Over time, especially in modern life, our bodies build up a positive charge. Direct contact with the earth can even out this positive charge and return the body to a neutral state.
Many people don’t have this contact with the earth anymore, and some experts wonder if this is a contributor to the (many) rising health problems we face today. As a population, we wear rubber shoes and live indoors. In theory, many of us could go years without directly touching the earth at all, even if we’re outside.
Over time, the theory is that this positive charge builds and can lead to health problems.
There are a few studies that have looked at “grounding,” and its effects on humans. One study published in theJournal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that grounding reduces blood viscosity—a major culprit in cardiovascular disease. As the study author writes, “Grounding appears to be one of the simplest and yet most profound interventions for helping reduce cardiovascular risk and cardiovascular events.”
