Generally, when someone talks about “electricity” it is implied the electric energy received in our homes from electric power stations. Using that definition, the short answer is “no” the Earthing products do not run on electricity.
When you are grounded, be it by direct contact with the Earth, through the ground port of an electrical outlet, or from a ground rod placed directly in the Earth, the Earth’s electrons are transferred to your body. The grounding hole in outlets was added in the 1960s to prevent electric shocks. That hole connects directly to long ground rods placed in the foundations of your building providing a very good ground.
The electrons from the Earth pass through the outlet hole through a cord and to the conductive Earthing product specially designed for human grounding, giving energy to your body. Earthing products are like “barefoot substitutes,” enabling you to receive the outside energy of the Earth inside your home or office.
Yes, if you live in Europe, the United Kingdom, the United States, New Zealand, or Australia. Our team selects the correct plug type that comes with every item, based on your shipping country.
No need to unplug them. Just leave them plugged in at the outlet unless you are going to move them to another room. Earthing products don’t “run” on electricity. They aren’t running up any bills when you leave them plugged in.
Also, leaving them plugged in does not “wear” them as when a device that is turned off still has some electric power going through it, which happens to be the case with some computers, printers, TVs, sound systems, etc.
No. Earthing products and the cords that connect them are designed only to conduct the Earth’s energy to you. They do not conduct any electric power that operates your lights and appliances. You connect your Earthing product to the ground (earth) contact of a wall outlet or a ground rod planted in the soil outside.
All Earthing cords have a built-in 100 Kilo-Ohms resistor restricting the current to a safe limit in the unlikely case of an electric current flowing into the grounding wire such as when you touch a metallic object or appliance that is electrically charged due to a short-circuit in it.
Yes. Animals naturally want to spend time in contact with the Earth. Many indoor pets share our lifestyle and never make contact with the ground outside. People report that pets indoors are attracted to earthing products.
Barefoot is indeed the natural way to go, and also to sleep on the ground. Or use conductive footwear and bedding made from animal skins. Such practices were part of the ordinary way of life throughout history. No longer. We rarely go outside barefoot, except as kids romping during the summer or on beach holidays. We wear insulating shoes, and we sleep on elevated beds in houses made of wood.
Earthing products were created to address the issue of comfort, convenience, reality, and practicality. The products are basically “extension cords” that bring the Earth’s energy outside into the office and home inside – simulating being barefoot outside. They were developed to accommodate the research process and to satisfy a continually growing demand of people wanting to sleep, work, or relax grounded.
Such devices utilize pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF) and indeed have many benefits. These fields, however, do not contain any electrons, and thus cannot deliver electrons to the body as does Earthing.
Earthing products conduct the electrons of the Earth (and their vibratory frequencies) into your body and serve as extension cords from the Earth to you. The electrons and their frequencies include all of the subtleties inherent in Nature that our bodies have attuned to throughout history which is not the case for the various therapeutic systems that simulate the frequencies of the Earth.
There is nothing wrong with using an Earthing sleep product with any electrical devices as long as those devices are in good working order. We suggest, if possible, to warm up your electric blanket or electrically heated mattress pad or waterbed and turn them off before you go to sleep to minimize exposure to EMFs. However, whether these products are on or off will not alter the proper functioning of any Earthing sleep product or alter the benefits you can expect from grounding.
Science has long known that the surface of the Earth contains a natural electric charge, felt by some people as a pleasant tingling when walking on wet grass in the morning or along the wet sand at the beach.
New research has produced convincing evidence that direct contact with the Earth’s electrons (the source of negative electric charge in nature) stabilizes and rejuvenates the body by recharging and thinning our blood, enhancing immune function, and powerfully and dramatically reducing inflammation, pain, and stress. The degree to which the body shifts into a healing state is substantial and of great medical significance.
In today’s society, most people have lost contact with the Earth and its healing power. We wear shoes with synthetic soles that block the Earth’s energy, and we live and work elevated from the ground. Our disconnection with the Earth is an ignored reason for the current epidemic of chronic inflammation, pain, and disease.
A powerful remedy, the research shows, is Earthing (also known as earthing), which reconnects humans to the Earth: by being barefoot outside, or, more practically, using conductive Earthing products while you sleep.
Earthing is a simple lifestyle addition involving no effort. It can be life-changing, and the change felt within minutes.
Not at all. Throughout practically all of history, humans have walked barefoot on the Earth. They have sat and slept on conductive animal skins and fashioned those skins into footwear. All this ordinary activity has enabled our predecessors to absorb the Earth’s natural healing energy, which prevented the build-up of inflammation in their bodies.
During the late 1880s, a back-to-Nature movement in Germany featured walking barefoot and sleeping directly on the Earth - for which many positive health claims were made.
You have options, but you need to make Earthing a routine part of your life.
1) Go barefoot (sit, stand, walk, run) outside on the Earth or swim/wade in the ocean/a lake/river for a half-hour or more a day. On land, conductive surfaces for grounding include soil, grass, sand, gravel, and rock. Concrete is also conductive. Moist surfaces are more conductive than dry. You cannot ground yourself on asphalt, vinyl, and wooden surface; they are not conductive.
2) Most people don’t have the time or the desire to go outside barefoot. Most “practice’ grounding inside, while sitting or sleeping. It is so easy to do. Actually, there is nothing to do. You can conveniently ground yourself with Earthing products available on our website.
Research on Earthing started in 2000 and led to the development of the products available today. Consider them as “barefoot substitutes” that allow you to be connected inside to the Earth outside.
Everybody is different - many people feel better right away, and they sleep better. They have more energy and less pain, but some individuals can feel temporary symptoms of detoxification as the body starts to function more efficiently. These are generally people with some disease or with chronic inflammation and pain who have not been grounded for many years.
Yes, more than ever, given the global epidemic of pain conditions and inflammation-related diseases worldwide, along with insomnia and chronic fatigue. Earthing is a natural, simple, and yet remarkably profound strategy with the potential to normalize many functions throughout your body. It eliminates what we consider to be a societal-wide grounding deficit, a wholly overlooked cause of epidemic pain and inflammation, and chronic disease and dysfunction.
Earthing reduces chronic inflammation and stress, both primary causes of disease and poor sleep. It broadly elevates your quality of life ˗ how you feel, and even how you look ˗ to a surprising level.
We recommend you first have a conversation with your doctor. Earthing makes the physiology function more efficiently, and this improvement has the potential to affect medication dosages. For instance, we know that Earthing has a blood thinning effect, may improve thyroid function, blood sugar, and blood pressure, and thus medication dosages may need to be closely monitored and possibly adjusted.
A big difference. The Earth’s electric field is mainly a continuous static electric field (with zero frequency, except for small fluctuations at very low frequencies; less than 30 Hz) that has influenced life on the planet throughout time.
By comparison, home wiring systems use alternating current (AC; 50 or 60 cycles per second). Unless at very low frequency and low power, AC is foreign to our biology. AC, and other forms of man-made environmental electromagnetic fields (EMFs), are being researched as possible factors in a variety of health-related conditions.
Many people are sensitive to EMFs. Studies show an “association,” but not cause and effect, with some health issues, although the case for more than an association is getting stronger the more research is done on the subject.
There is no constant measurable current flow beyond the instant equalization charge transferred to the body when a person becomes grounded to the Earth either outside barefoot or inside with an Earthing product. Once the body is thus grounded, the rate of influx changes and the body will continue to absorb enough electrons needed to maintain the same electrical potential as the Earth and to restore what is lost as a result of metabolic processes.
As the body continues in a grounded state, it appears to draw electrons as needed to maintain a “topped up” homeostatic level that compensates for any attrition of internal electrons. In contact with the Earth, it would seem hard for the body to develop an electron deficiency and, theoretically, chronic inflammation.
The number of electrons absorbed by the body to reduce metabolic and immune response free radicals would also vary significantly between people depending upon their lifestyle and activity. Preliminary results from an ongoing research study indicate that this current is very low - typically less than a nano-ampere (one billionth of an ampere).
We think it has powerful anti-aging potential. Many researchers have documented the deterioration of the immune system as we age, a decline called immunosenescence. A prominent medical theory states that one of the causes of general deterioration during aging is free radical damage, technically known as oxidative stress, and resulting in injury to cells.
Since Earthing greatly reduces oxidative stress and inflammation, it would be logical to think it could increase life expectancy and improve health. There is no question that maintaining a functionally “young” immune system is an excellent strategy for preserving the quality of life and slowing senescence.
Pain, disease, and other disturbances are often caused by chronic inflammation. Such inflammation is, in turn, caused by positively charged molecules called free radicals. When you make direct contact with the Earth, either by being barefoot outside or using an Earthing product indoors, electrons from the Earth enter your body and reduce the free radicals and inflammation.
At this point, the concept is theoretical but supported by our research and feedback from thousands of people who use Earthing products. In any case, the effect of Earthing is significant because medical research has found that many of the chronic and debilitating diseases of our time have the same cause: chronic inflammation.
Scientists now realize that pain and disease arise in our bodies where an inflammatory response has taken place, but the inflammation has not completely stopped after the healing process. A low level of chronic inflammation can continue for years, damaging normal tissues and wasting energy. The human immune system evolved over a long span of time during which we were in virtually constant skin contact with the Earth.
In our modern society, humans no longer walk barefoot. We wear shoes that insulate us from the Earth’s energy. In recent decades the incidence of chronic diseases, allergies, auto-immune conditions, and insomnia has soared. One overlooked possibility for this alarming increase is that the immune system is functioning less efficiently as most humans today live ungrounded.
We have repeatedly observed Earthing producing beneficial effects quickly. Keep in mind that the body is a good conductor of free electrons. We have seen that when people are grounded in experiments with the use, for instance, of conductive patches placed on the bottom of the feet (simulating standing barefoot on the Earth), they sometimes feel a tingling sensation moving up the legs. We associate this with the movement of electrons from the Earth up into the body. People say they often feel the same sensation when walking barefoot along the wet sand at the beach.
In our research, we have “clocked” the speed of this activity. It takes about 20 to 30 minutes to reach sites of pain and inflammation, such as a shoulder. A painful knee would respond faster as it is closer to the grounded feet. When a study participant says that pain has started to ease we regard this as a sign that the electrons have arrived at the pain site and are “going to work.”
The influx of electrons gives a powerful boost to the body’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory defenses. Like reinforcements, we believe they rapidly neutralize free radical molecules that create chronic inflammation, arresting the destructive action on healthy tissues, and leading to a reduction of pain.
Medical thermal imaging has shown decreased inflammation in minutes after people are grounded. You can see examples of such decreased inflammation in several thermal imaging studies on Earthing, for example here and here.
There is an instant and natural shift in your body when you become grounded. We have measured the changes in the laboratory and they clearly indicate that the body is functioning better. People with pain often feel relief in varying degrees − from a little to a lot, and to even disappearance of the pain − just by planting their bare feet on the ground outside for a half hour or forty minutes. Sleeping grounded through the night produces many beneficial results, such as better and deeper sleep, more energy during the day, and less pain. Again, the degree of benefits vary from slight to dramatic, from immediate to gradual.
Everyone is different. Symptoms are different. Causes are different.
Some chronically ill people benefit from additional grounding hours during the day. From the thousands of cases that Clint Ober and others have observed for years, the more severe the health problem the more dramatic the improvement seen with grounding in general. Even in end-of-life situations associated with pain, it has been reported that individuals generally have less pain.
We have had many reports of improved sleep and decreased stress after only one or two nights of sleeping grounded. If the cause of sleep difficulties is long-term insomnia with underlying health issues, improvement may stretch out. In a study conducted by the California Institute for Human Science, instantaneous changes in brain waves and muscle tension were documented with grounding.
Clearly, lasting changes in stress, sleep, pain, and body rhythms occur when we ground ourselves routinely.
Earthing does not cure anything. It restores a natural electrical balance in the body and reduces stress and inflammation. Earthing can thus have both short-term and long-term effects.
The body is most receptive to healing during sleep, so this is the most beneficial time for grounding.
But just as you can’t direct healthy food, air, or water to create specific effects in one function or part of your body, grounding allows your body to receive the natural energy of the Earth and then uses it as needed.
You may experience benefits for certain issues you were not even expecting improvements in and there may be no change in other areas. Generally, the longer you continue to ground yourself, the more benefits and vitality you can expect to see.
There is no evidence that grounding interferes with the function of these devices. Still, if you are considering grounding it is important to discuss it first with your doctor and decide together what is best for you. Grounding indoors is the same as walking barefoot outside. Many people have used grounding products and experienced the benefits of both their medical devices and grounding. To our knowledge, no one with a pacemaker or defibrillator, or stents has been advised not to walk barefoot outdoors.
Pacemakers and defibrillators are devices implanted in the chest or abdomen and help control abnormal heart rhythms called arrhythmia. Defibrillators are used against life-threatening arrhythmias. Contemporary devices typically function as both pacemakers and defibrillators. Because of the sophistication of these newer devices, it is essential to consult with your physician before starting grounding. Moreover, doctors will often prescribe anticoagulants (blood thinners) to patients with arrhythmia. Grounding has a beneficial blood-thinning effect, which is likely not known to most doctors. The combination of grounding and anticoagulant medication may possibly create excess blood thinning. Thus, the importance of speaking to your doctor first.
For individuals with pacemakers/defibrillators who ground themselves by walking barefoot outdoors routinely for some hours, it would be wise to consult with your physician, even though such grounding exposure is likely to have less impact than for someone grounding more hours indoors during sleep.
Primarily by reducing inflammation. The Earth has analgesic properties. Go outside and stand, sit, or walk on the ground barefoot for at least a half-hour. In that time, you will likely notice that your pain is less. There are Earthing products on our website that you can use indoors while sleeping or sitting. Think of them as extension cords connecting you in your house to the Earth outside.
Yes. Using Earthing products is equivalent to being barefoot outdoors and does not interfere with your new hip or knee. If you ground yourself immediately after the surgery, you will likely recover faster.
