Evidence-based Top-5 Health benefits of Grounding

Hi friends,
Do you know that?
Just sitting, working, or walking barefoot on the "Mother Earth" can not only make you feel good furthermore it can clear your health complications as well.
It's true!
Lap of Mother Earth can work wonders for our health with its soothing and, everlasting health benefits from improving heart health to quality sleep.
In technical terms 
What is Grounding

This "gentle touch of Mother Earth" is known as grounding (also known as Earthing) and, basically bringing our body into direct contact with Mother Earth is called Grounding/Earthing.
Today we will discuss evidence-based "5 incredible benefits of Grounding/Earthing".
But before reaching those benefits first
Let's see what happen to our body when we touch, sit or walk barefoot on mother earth
or technically

How grounding works on Human Body:

Mother Earth has an abundant supply of free (mobile) electrons by which being electrically conductive its surface always remains at negative potential and, it owns a limitless and continuously renewed supply of free or mobile electrons by the global atmospheric electrical circuit.
On the other hand, being bioelectrical living beings we humans are also electrically conductive and, our body functions electrically. Every resting cell of our body has a negative voltage inside and a positive voltage on the outside and transmits multiple frequencies and, every movement & thought in our body is based upon electric transmissions &, these frequencies such as The functioning of our immune system, brain and, heart are evident examples of such working.
So we always need a stable bioelectrical environment for our proper bodily functioning and Grounding provides a means to maintain our body in a stable bioelectrical environment.
Furthermore, when we are in direct contact with Mother Earth, our body starts absorbing electrons from the earth surface (or ground) through our skin, and our body gets saturated with these electrons very quickly just like a sponge and our body use these free (mobile) electrons for various bodily functions.
We can also say that these electrons are essential for our health and, if these free electrons are missing or deficient in our body, then it can cause various health issues just like any other deficient vitamin or mineral.

Now without wasting much time lets straight jump to the

Top-5 Health benefits of Grounding

1.Grounding Prevents & Reduce Chronic Inflammation:

Chronic inflammation is a result of a gradual process that doesn't appear instantaneously, that's why people may not be known to it, even if it's in there within their body. Because of this reason, it is also called silent inflammation.
Studies have also shown that chronic inflammation is one of the culprits behind various fatal diseases such as.
*Cardiovascular disease;
*autoimmune disorders;
*many more…………
But no worries Mother Earth is here to help you in this issue and, just by its gentle touch (in the form of grounding) your inflammation will be kept in check regularly and, in the long run, it will reduce your chronic inflammation as well.
According to the study published in the national center of biotechnology information (NCBI) Grounding is the most desirable and suitable intervention for reducing inflammation.
Here a question may pop-up in your mind that

How Grounding Reduces and prevents inflammation?

Here is your answer
Whenever we get a wound/injury in any part of our body then that part of our body develops inflammation and, as we know that cells are the basic building block of our body so during getting this wound/injury some cells of that body part get damage as well.
This inflammation that comes at the injury site (place of wound/injury) is a protective mechanism of our body and initiated by neutrophils (which is a type of white body cells).
Because whenever we get a wound/injury these neutrophils (white blood cells) come over at the injury site and encase the damaged cells of that injury site, and also start releasing reactive oxygen species (ROS) or free radicals to destroy these damaged cell (By snatching the electron from these damaged cells), and any dead cell/bacteria/pathogen.
In this way, ROS or free radicals cleans-up the injury site for further healing and by this way injury site gets that inflammation.
But during this whole process, some ROS or free radicals left unused, and to neutralize these unused free radicals our body needs free (mobile) electrons and, if our body doesn't have enough stock of free electrons to neutralize these free radicals, then these free radicals get leak into the surrounding healthy tissues and withdraw electrons from the healthy cells that initiate a chain reaction of a similar event and result in chronic inflammation over the period.
But if you touch mother earth directly through your skin then your body will always have those surplus free (mobile) electrons to cop-up with such issues.

2. Grounding decreases blood viscosity:

As we all know that blood is a complex fluid made up of plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, proteins, nutrients, and metabolic waste products.
But out of this complex composition blood viscosity is generally measured by the zeta potential of red blood cells (RBCs), and strongly depends on this zeta potential (the RBCs surface charge).
Note: The Zeta potential is a degree of negative charge present on the surface of every red blood cell.
By virtue of this zeta potential RBCs repel each other as per the law of electrostatic repulsion, and this force of repulsion puts RBCs at certain spacing, and this spacing between RBCs further regulates the blood viscosity.
When our body saturates with free (mobile) electrons (because of grounding) then these free (mobile) electrons from the earth enter into the bloodstream and cover the surface of RBCs.
By virtue of this electron covering the zeta potential of RBCs gets increased and, the greater the zeta potential level, the more the force of repulsion between RBCs therefore the more spaced the red blood cells are and the lower the blood viscosity, clumping, and peripheral resistance are.
According to the study published in the national center for biotechnology information (NCBI) the grounding increased zeta potentials in all samples by an average of 2.70 and significantly reduced RBC aggregation.

3. Grounding Improves cardiovascular health :

Increased blood viscosity and cardiovascular health is correlated, means the risk of major cardiovascular events increase with increased blood-viscosity levels.
Now as we know the fact that the gentle touch of mother earth or Grounding can significantly reduce the blood viscosity level and, which can further improve our cardiovascular health.
According to a study published in the National center of biotechnology information Grounding appears to be one of the simplest and yet most profound interventions for helping reduce cardiovascular risk and cardiovascular events. Because Grounding increases the surface charge on RBCs and thereby reduces blood viscosity and clumping.

4.Grounding Reduces and may eliminate Pain:

Most of our body’s acute and severe pain associated conditions are directly linked to some sort of inflammation because inflammation put pressure on pain receptors and, can further hamper the movement and microcirculation of that particular affected part of our body.
But Mother Earth can soothe you in this painful condition with its magical touch of grounding, and by directly correcting its root cause which is inflammation.
A study published in the U.S. national library of medicine observed that going barefoot as little as 30 or 40 minutes daily can significantly reduce pain.

5. Reduced Stress Levels and improve Sleep:

Stress and our sleep pattern are generally correlated (means one affects the other) and, cortisol which is also called the stress hormone is considered to be a tag of stress response of our body. Raised cortisol level results in stress level, and raised sleep dysfunction, and vice versa.
But no worries, Mother Earth’s lap is here to reduce your stress level and to put you in deep sleep.
According to a study published in the national center of biotechnology information "Grounding appears to improve sleep, normalize the day-night cortisol rhythm, reduce pain, and reduce stress level.

The bottom line for GROUNDING:

Grounding deals with our connection to Mother Earth and, as a child of this Mother Earth "This is your birthright to be in direct touch with your mother as much as you can". Neither do you need to ask your doctor to avail of this, nor need your physician to recommend it to you and, the best part of grounding is you need not spend a penny to avail this as it is free for all.
So from our today's discussion, we reach out to this conclusion that "the Grounding is a life throbbing gift for all of us from our Mother Earth". We need to unwrap this gift to avail of its benefits.
So let's unwrap this beautiful gift of Grounding and establish our connection with Mother Earth.

  1. Ongoing research shows that grounding augments the physiology's infrastructure from the foundation up. As the burden of global disease and pain conditions grow increasingly larger, it is more necessary than ever to promote effective prevention and lifestyle practices. Such practices should include Earthing. Earthing means a return to a forgotten and vital aspect of Nature – Earth's healing properties – that has great potential to both prevent and treat common disorders afflicting modern society.

  4. The ones who will need diabetic supplies at home most often are those who are suffering from Type 1, and their list of needs is more prolific than those who have Type 2. Type 2 diabetics will primarily use only glucose metering devices and test strips to maintain their health, having been educated in what to do when their blood glucose reaches certain levels and what can be done to correct it. Type 1 diabetics need more supplies because their condition must be constantly and closely monitored 24/7. firehouse subs for diabetic menu
