Why is earthing good for us?
In modern life we are being bombarded with electrical charges all day. This creates a build-up of excess free radicals, which can cause damage to our cells. Free radicals need a negative electron in order to neutralise. Luckily, the Earth has an endless supply of these and we can absorb them effortlessly through our skin. When we are earthed, the electrons move freely between the earth and our body discharging these rogue free radicals.
Ask your favourite search engine about earthing and you’ll likely tumble down a rabbit hole of case studies and testimonials of people who have ended decades of chronic pain, cured their husband’s deafening snoring overnight and conquered depression. You may even find a video of a man in Alaska so desperate to heal his painful joints that he stripped naked in minus 20 degrees and crawled under his veranda to make contact with the only earth not covered by several meters of snow. This same man was so impressed with the power of earthing that he experimented with earthing rods in vases of flowers and, you guessed it, the earthed ones thrived for much longer.
