What Is Earthing?
Do you remember the last time you walked barefoot on the beach, through the grass or in the bush and simply reconnected with the Earth? How good did it feel?
Years of extensive research has shown that connecting to the Earth’s natural energy, by walking barefoot on grass, sand, dirt or rock can diminish chronic pain, fatigue and other ailments that plague so many people today. This connection is referred to as Earthing or Grounding.
To put it briefly, when your bare feet or skin comes in contact with the earth, free electrons are taken up into the body. These electrons could be referred to as nature’s biggest antioxidants and help neutralise damaging excess free radicals that can lead to inflammation and disease in the body. The Earth is a conductor or free electrons and so are all living things on the planet, including us. The body is composed of mostly of water and minerals which in combination are excellent conductors of electrons from the Earth providing there is direct skin contact or some other conductive channel for them to flow through.
The Earth’s energy upgrades one’s physiology by allowing the body to cope and repair thereby promoting wellbeing, vitality and better sleep. It also harmonizes and stabilizes the body’s basic biological rhythms, knocks down (and even knocks out) chronic inflammation and reduces and eliminates associated pain, making it the most natural and powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-aging remedy around! No matter what your age, gender, race or health status you will benefit from a daily dose of Earthing!

For years I have experienced pain in my legs, neck and shoulders. My life was on hold. I spent a lot of time huddled up as I couldn’t bear to move. When I heard about the Earthing products, I thought it was just another gimmick. I tried the bands for 45 minutes and the cramps and pain I got from IBS just went away. I now use the Bands and Half Sheet and overall I feel my body is more flexible. I can do things in the garden I never used to be able to do and I have more of my life backJanni Walker 68, Grafton, NSW
Our connection to nature, the planet and the universe are vital, however, with rapid advances in technology and our modern fast-paced lifestyles, many of us have become separated from our basic bond with mother Earth.
We all know that the sun gives us warmth, light and vitamin D and the Earth provides us with fresh air, water, food, and a surface to live on. However, as discussed earlier, it has recently been learned that when your bare feet make contact with the Earth’s surface your body uptakes a natural and subtle energy which could be referred to as vitamin G – G for ground. This could be the difference between feeling good and not so good, of having little or a lot of energy, sleeping well or not so well, looking vibrant or looking tired and old, suffering from an auto-immune disease or having a strong immune system.
Throughout history humans walked, sat and slept on the ground, cultivated their land with bare hands and spent a lot of their time naturally grounded. However, today, we have become increasingly disconnected from nature by our modern lifestyle. Conductive leather-soled shoes of our ancestors have been replaced with insulated rubber and plastics. We sleep in beds and homes off the ground. Plastics, synthetic fabrics, asphalt, tar, carpets, vinyl have all been introduced and block this natural connection. To add to this, we are also bathed in a sea of unnatural man-made electronic radiation from household appliances, mobile phones, wi-fi, microwaves and cell towers, which bombard us continuously with excess free radical damage to our tissues and cells. The Earth’s energy helps to knock these excess free radicals down so that your body can heal and repair naturally, as it is meant to. Therefore, to remain in good health, it is imperative that we re-connect with this natural energy daily to counteract the damaging effects of our modern lifestyle.
What Earthing Is Not!
Earthing has nothing to do with Supplements, Pills, Long Clinic Visits or Expensive Treatments and is not a magic cure or this week's celebrity fad! Earthing is safe and natural, for people of all ages, young and old, but it is not medicine or a substitute for medical treatment. If you have a medical condition, see your physician or healthcare provider.
How can I experience Earthing now?
Go barefoot outside for at least half-hour and see what a difference it makes on your pain or stress level. Sit, stand, lay or walk on grass, sand, dirt, or plain concrete. These are all conductive surfaces from which your body can draw the Earth’s energy. Wood, carpet, asphalt, sealed or painted concrete and vinyl won’t work and will block the flow of electrons as they are not conductive surfaces. Experience for yourself the healing energy of the Earth at work next time you are stressed, in pain or unwell.
The Simplest Way To Be Earthed Everyday When You Can't Get Outside.
If walking barefoot on a daily basis is not possible or practical for you, Earthing indoor products are just as effective - from Grounding Shoes to Wrist Bands, Pillows, Sheets or Mats - there is an Earthing product to suit your lifestyle and needs. You can easily set up indoor Earthing Products around the home or office and you will be able to use them, without effort or any downtime, every day, such as while you sleep, while you watch TV, while you use your computer and even while you meditate. Scroll down to see products below. Click here to see how to set up Earthing Products.
Wondering Where To Begin?
The popular starter pack features a money-saving combination of an Earthing Sleep Mat or Earthing Sheet to use on your bed when you sleep, an Earthing Universal Mat for use elsewhere in your home or office during the day, testing equipment so that you know your products are working as well as the Earthing Movie DVD and Earthing Audio Book CD to fill you in on all the stories, research and evidence behind Earthing.

Other Ways to be Earthed:
How Much Time Do I Need To See Benefits
Everybody is different, and just like no two people will get the same results when undertaking a fitness or diet program, your results will depend on your circumstances. However, research has shown that in just seconds the body's physiology starts to change with muscles relaxing and returning to normal tension, stress starts to dissipate by calming down the nervous system.
Within 30 minutes to 90 minutes you may start to notice a real difference with pain levels, stress, calmness, easier to get off to sleep or just feeling better than before. If you have a long-standing health issue it has been shown that consistent Earthing is more beneficial and any results may take several weeks to be apparent. If you are generally healthy you may not notice much change at all, however, your body is receiving less free radical damage and can therefore heal and repair every night as it is meant to, keeping your body in continual good health and well-being.
The bottom line is that some people experience Earthing benefits quickly and for others, it may take time.
How Do I Know If Earthing Is Working For Me?
We recommend that when you start to keep a journal or notebook and rate your conditions from 1 to 10. 10 being the worst and 1 being the best. Start journalling the first night you put your sheet on or use your mat and rate your conditions, return to the journal the next week and rate your condition again and see if the numbers have improved. Do this over a few months to get a true indication as to your conditions improving. ►Click Here to see an example of a journal or print out a page. We have found that as this Earthing healing energy is very subtle, your new way of life becomes your "new normal" and you may carry on with life just as before without pain, without too much stress, and this is now your new reference and you may think that Earthing is not working for you any longer as you have become accustomed to your new way of well being. Well, there is an easy way to test this.... leave your sheet off or don't use your mats for a week or two and you may start to see old illnesses return or you may not sleep as well - its that easy. If you are healthy, to begin with, you may not notice any changes, however, you get rest assured that you are providing your body with a natural electrical nutrient, that it requires to stay well and live long.
How Can I Tap Into This Energy From My Home?
Through research and demand by participants, innovative products were developed to bring the Earth's natural healing energy directly to the body, while indoors, via conductive wires and conductive materials/fabrics thus making the Earth-Body connection easy and convenient. Just like pipes and taps bring water to our homes, we can now bring the Earth's energy into our homes two ways:-
|1. We can go directly to the source of mother earth by using a Ground Rod. The Ground Rod is inserted into moist earth around your home or office and the connecting cord is then run under a door or window and attached to an Earthing product such as a sheet or mat (►click here to see our connection guide).|
|2. Our powerpoints in our homes are already Earthed, therefore, we can take advantage of this by inserting our custom-designed non-electrical Earthing plug into a PowerPoint or powerboard, that you will be using. The Earth Plug connects to the Earth wire only that is already present. in the PowerPoint. One end of a conductive cord is then inserted into the plug and the other end attaches to a conductive product such as a sheet or mat (►click here to see our connection guide). No electrical power is used in this process, the plugs are safe and non-electrical and cannot be used as an appliance plug.|
What Are The Conductive Earthing Products?
The remedy for this modern-day disconnect is simple. Walk barefoot outdoors whenever possible and/or sleep, work, or relax indoors in contact with conductive sheets or mats that transfer the energy to your body in the comfort of your home or office when it suits you. People who do on a regular basis say they sleep better, feel better, have more energy during the day, look better and live longer. This simple practice is both a technology and a movement which is transforming lives across the planet and is known as Earthing.
