Have you been experiencing inflammation? Did you know that chronic inflammation is regarded as the most common cause of modern day diseases?
What to do?
The answer is right under your feet -walking barefoot a few minutes a day might just help relieve those pains. This simple, anti-inflammation cure is called Earthing or Grounding.
Throughout most of evolution humans have walked barefoot and slept on the ground, largely oblivious that the surface of the Earth contains limitless healing energy. Science has discovered this energy as free-flowing electrons constantly replenished by solar radiation and lightning. Few people know it, but the ground provides a subtle electric signal that maintains health and governs the intricate mechanisms that make our bodies work-just like plugging a lamp into a power socket makes it light up.
Modern lifestyle, including the widespread use of insulative rubber or plastic-soled shoes, has disconnected us from this energy and, of course, most of us no longer sleep on the ground as we did in times past. This physical disconnect with the Earth has created abnormal physiology and has contributed to inflammation, pain, fatigue, stress, and poor sleep.
Earthing introduces the planet’s powerful, amazing, and overlooked natural healing energy. You can readily connect to it and by reconnecting to the Earth, symptoms are rapidly relieved and even eliminated and recovery from surgery, injury, and athletic overexertion is accelerated.
Earthing can be done in a number of ways but the easiest is to kick of your shoes (or boots, or whatever) and feel the ground with your bare feet. And as farmers you do not have to walk far to do this all in the privacy of your own backyard In winter we recommend early afternoon when the ground is not quite so chillingly cold and in summer early morning when the ground is not scorching!
The instant benefit of the feet being massaged by the ground can already give immediate pleasure and allows for your body to re-charge by connecting to the Earth’s energy. You see, our bodies work primarily through electrical signals. For example, our nervous system sends signals to the brain, allowing us to react to certain stimuli like pain. Our body at rest produces 100 watts of power.
The Earth, on the other hand,is a source of free-flowing electrons that we can harness. By spending time barefoot on the ground (the grass, soil, or the sand) we are able to connect to the Earth’s healing energy. This practice of Earthing can improve your blood circulation and reduce inflammation on certain parts of our body.
Earthing is claimed to also lower cortisol levels, which are released when you are going through stress, and to restore the body’s natural rhythm making it possible to have better sleep at night.
