Earth modelEarthing (electrical grounding of the human body) provides free electrons and normalizes the electrical voltage of the human body. As several recent clinical studies proved, Earthing helps to suppress inflammation, reduce pain and stress, to dramatically improve sleep in insomniacs, and normalize nerve, muscle, and immune function.

For ungrounded people, just standing barefoot for 30 min can increase body O2 (results for the body-oxygen test) by 2-5 seconds. Even better results are common for many people when they are grounded during sleep. In the long run, an average student can often get up to 5-10 s higher morning CPs (body O2) due to the correct application of Earthing.

Therefore, as during breathing retraining, Earthing, in cases of serious health conditions, requires a good knowledge of temporary restrictions and safety rules.

Earthing is a totally natural and powerful supplementary method that was endorsed by Dr. Buteyko and his colleagues. However, they suggested that the main benefits of barefoot activities are due to the stimulation of nerve endings on soles of feet.

Earthing is not a substitute for other lifestyle factors. Therefore, we still require exercise with nose breathing, correct posture, prevention of supine sleep, clean air, good thermoregulation, an empty stomach (for nearly all people) before going to bed, and many other factors in order to have high body-O2 test results for the next morning.

The YouTube video on the right side is about research, benefits, an overview of main principles, and effects of Earthing on inflammatory conditions. This video features Clint Ober (the man who discovered and was first to test effects of grounding on health) and Dr. Joseph Mercola.

How does grounding or Grounding work?

The electrically insulated human body has a tendency to accumulate a positive electrical charge (up to many 100s or 1,000 Volts), while Earth has a slightly negative charge (or an excess of electrons). Many antioxidants, like vitamin C, vitamin E, lutein and so on, are able to deactivate free radicals (reactive oxygen species) by using mainly one mechanism: donation to free radicals their free electrons. Electrons provided by Earth produce a similar effect on free radicals as these antioxidants do.

When the human body has physical contact or is electrically connected with Earth, Earth provides an unlimited source of free electrons to quench any inflammation and normalize the work of the nervous system and muscles. There are several causes that lead to the accumulation of a large positive charge (especially due to wearing synthetic clothes) on a human body:
- insulation of the human body (due to wearing modern insulated shoes, walking on wood and carpet floors, sleeping on elevated beds)
- triboelectricity (especially due to wearing synthetic clothes and walking on carpets)
- induced body currents due to large outer electric and magnetic fields caused by ordinary electric cables, home appliances, cell phones, laptops, iPads, iPods, and many other objects.

Depending on their presence and magnitude, these factors lead to an electron deficiency, which fuels chronic inflammation, pain, abnormalities in the transmission of electrical signals in the nervous system and muscles, and other pathological effects. Earthing, however, restores a natural flow of electrons and reduces or eliminates these and other problems.

Therefore, one may assume that Earthing can be one of the key factors, together with physical exercise with nose breathing, that contributed to the slow and easy breathing in people living generations ago.

Here are more details about effects of grounding (Earthing) on inflammatory response and chronic inflammation.
