Earthing Blog and the science behind it!
Walking, running, standing, or sitting barefoot, will ground you. Outside: grass, soil, gravel, stone, sand, brick, concrete. Inside: unpainted or unsealed concrete or tile floor built directly on the Earth (best to test the floor for conductivity). The following surfaces will not ground you. Outside: asphalt, vinyl, wood (such as wooden decks). Inside: wooden floors, painted/sealed concrete or tiled floors, carpets.
You can be grounded outdoors and indoors. Either way, you’ll feel better, have less pain, sleep better, look better, and have more energy. Earthing products do not “run” on electricity. If you plug the cord into your outlet, you are not plugging into electricity, just to the Earth connector point. This is the grounding safety system which is built into modern houses and buildings.
A human body – our brain, heart beat, our muscles, everything – is pimarily electrical. So when we’re standing barefoot on the earth, we’re absorbing electrons that help neutralise the free radicals in our body that damage our cells. We feel better because we are electrically stable.
