Our world is full of magnetic forces and electromagnetic waves that are not in alignment with our own energetic field. Think phone, electricity, microwaves, smart meters ….etc, etc.

There is strong evidence to suggest that some illness and disease is due to these electromagnetic waves affecting our own sensitive frequency.

One of the best, easiest ways of grounding is simple and easy. What could be more connective than walking barefoot on the earth. It is recommended that to walk, stand or lie on the earth for at least 30 minutes has very powerful healing potential. It is preferable if the grass is wet for walking on, you can also get the same beneficial effect if you to walk on sand.

‘Grounding shows benefit for inflammation, the immune response, wound healing, and the prevention and treatment of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases’ (Dr Mercola,

The Earth carries a huge negative charge which is electron-rich and acts as a powerful ‘anti-oxidant’ helping to remove free radicals from the body.

We are part of nature. Nature is part of us so there is no surprise that walking directly on the earth helps our own energy to flow more freely. In our busy lives where most people tend to live in their heads the grounding and calming results of walking barefoot on the earth has also shown to reduce stress, anxiety, improving sleep, reducing joint pain and other disorders.

There is a great documentary on YouTube called "The Grounded" which is well worth watching as it explores this in more detail.

You can also buy earthing products for your home such as earthing mats for sleeping

‘According to Dr Stephen Sinatra, a prominent cardiologist, inflammation thrives when your blood is thick and you have a lot of free radical stress, and a lot of positive charges in your body. Grounding effectively alleviates inflammation because it thins your blood and infuses you with negatively charged ions through the soles of your feet. Also, medical infrared imaging has shown that inflammation begins to subside within 30 minutes on being grounded'. (
