Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?
About this deal
Keith Staskiewicz of Entertainment Weekly gave the book an A−, praising it as " The Devil's Dictionary for a new generation" and concludes that the book's humor and writing style might lead the reader to conclude that "this would actually be a fairly comprehensive guide for extraterrestrial visitors", adding "just so long as they have a sense of humor".  Ten relatively healthy subjects participated in the study [ 29]. They were seated comfortably in a reclining chair and were grounded for two hours with electrode patches placed on their feet and hands, as in previous studies. Blood samples were taken before and after. For the most part, the modern structures we live in and do business in- our houses and workplaces- are also nonconductive and separate us from the Earth’s healing electrons. Think about where you spend most of your day: in an apartment, house, or office elevated from the ground, with a layer of wood, synthetic carpeting, or vinyl covering the floor. Unless you live on a dirt, cement, marble, or stone floor, it is unlikely that you are receiving any good vibes from below. Like shoes and houses, beds, to, have (d)evolved.”
I do know I love to walk barefooted, but I also know I still have health issues despite walking barefooted every day for 18 months. Can't hurt to try, but I don't think it can fill all the claims he makes either.
Reduction of Primary Indicators of Osteoporosis, Improvement of Glucose Regulation, and Immune Response De Flora et al. wrote the following: “Since the late 20th century, chronic degenerative diseases have overcome infectious disease as the major causes of death in the 21st century, so an increase in human longevity will depend on finding an intervention that inhibits the development of these diseases and slows their progress” [ 33]. The solution for chronic inflammation, regarded as the cause of most common modern diseases, has been identified! And it is not blueberries. It is something right beneath our feet-the Earth itself!
Persist he did. Eventually, Clint found open-minded experts in the fields of medicine, physiology, and biophysics and inspired a series of research projects showing that the surface of the Earth is like one gigantic anti-inflammatory, sleep booster, and energizer-all wrapped up in one.In conclusion, this is an extremely well-written, exciting, absolutely readable, ground-breaking (no pun intended), scientific, health-improving, potentially life-saving book. I'd love to learn more about how grounding and the electrons it gives compare to the electrons given by vitamin C and glutathione. Some crossover research would be great too.
Our research on Earthing has uncovered what is perhaps the most simple and natural remedy against proliferating, painful, and often deadly conditions, including the disease of aging, created by various kinds of inflammation. As you will read further on, our hypothesis for how this remedy works is unlike any you have ever heard. In all its ramifications, we think it represents a new healing paradigm. My rule for alternative and wholistic medicine protocols is: If it can't hurt but it may help I'm willing to give it a try. I look at the risk/benefit ratio and make my decision.
Koniver provides some practical solutions to finding time to reconnect with the Earth in our daily lives. She outlines the restorative powers of the Earth that include lower blood pressure, reduced stress, reduced depression, and increased happiness. She suggests that even five minutes of walking barefoot on the ground can have a significant impact on your sense of well-being over time. If you don’t have access to the book (which explains thoroughly the science and a whooping +100 testimonials of relief from different ailments) then here’s the documentary (I have yet to watch it though): The main benefits described by the book from grounding are pain relief, reduced inflammation, a reset sleep-wake cycle, feeling calmer and a dampening down of the sympathetic nervous system and adrenaline surges, resynchronisation of cortisol release, protection from EMF radiation and the problems it can cause, relief of muscle tension and headaches plus speeded healing and prevention of bedsores. It can also help you cope with jet-lag.
