Touching the Earth The Healing Powers of Going Barefoot


by Martin Zucker M


elanie Monteith, of San Diego, California, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at age 24 and


plagued by symptoms for 14 years. Simple daily tasks became challenging. She relied on walking aids and walls to keep from fall- ing. Eventually, she quit her job. Every day tested her survival skills. Ten, in late 2017, Monteith tried grounding and it changed her life. Grounding, also called Earthing,


refers to the discovery of major health benefits from sustained contact with the Earth’s natural and subtle electric charge. Recent research published in the Journal of Inflammation, Integrative Medicine: A Clinician’s Journal, Neonatology and Health indicates that grounding stabilizes the physiology in many ways, drains the body of inflammation, pain and stress, and generates greater well-being.

barefoot in nature, including the backyard, for 30 to 60 minutes once or twice a day on surfaces like grass, soil, gravel, stone and sand. If this isn’t practical, special grounding mats and pads are available online for con- venient indoor use while sitting or sleeping; people with compromised health oſten benefit from more time being grounded. Te activity restores a primordial


electric connection with the Earth that has been lost with modern lifestyles. We wear shoes with insulating, synthetic soles and live and work elevated above the ground. Tese overlooked lifestyle factors may con- tribute to increasing global rates of chronic illnesses. Grounding revitalizes us, akin to charging a weak battery, because our bod- ies operate electrically and our movements and thoughts are based on electrical signals. We are bioelectric beings.


Eighteen years of grounding re-


search in a variety of indoor settings, plus grassroots feedback from around the world, clearly show that our bodies oper- ate more effectively when grounded. We sleep better, have less pain, more energy and even look better. Here are some of the documented benefits.


Reduction of chronic inflammation


“Inflammation is intimately linked


to most chronic and aging-related diseas- es,” says Gaétan Chevalier, Ph.D., a visiting scholar at the University of California, San Diego, who has conducted multiple ground- ing studies. “Grounding seems to be nature’s way to reduce inflammation.”


Enhanced blood flow Tick, sludgy blood is a common feature of diabetes and cardiovas-


cular disorders. Several grounding studies have demonstrated a significant decrease in blood viscosity and enhanced blood flow. “Grounding represents a potent circulation booster; a simple, yet pro- found preventive and therapeutic strategy,” says integrative cardiologist Dr. Stephen
