The Greatest Health Re-Discovery Ever? (Amazing Grounding Research Revealed)

Posted on Dec 10, 2013 in Environment, Health Optimization

“Throughout time, humans have strolled barefoot on the Earth, slept on the ground, and received in return from the Earth a natural, nurturing, and gentle electric energy. Now, however, modern lifestyle has increasingly separated us from this flow of energy. We wear insulating rubber or plastic soled shoes that block the flow. Obviously we longer sleep on the ground as we did in the past.

Research is now revealing that this energy upgrades our physiology. It promotes health, vitality and better sleep, harmonizes and stabilizes the body’s biological rhythms, knocks down (and even knocks out) chronic inflammation, and reduces and eliminates associated pain.”  – Martyn Zucker

There are rhythms and patterns that connect us to the Earth. Research shows that sacred Cathedrals and Temples were built to be sourced to this connection.  All living things are are tuned to the Schumann Resonance – the frequency of the Earth itself. So I guess it’s no surprise that being more connected to this source can promote healing; calm the nervous system, soothe the left side of the brain and synchronize the left and right brain.

Try it now

To experience Earthing or Grounding for yourself, just walk or sit barefoot on grass, sand, gravel or unpainted concrete. (wood, asphalt and plastic do not conduct).

Stay at least 30 minutes or so and at the end of that time you’ll find you are calmer, and if you had any pain to begin with, it will be less, or even gone.

Let us know about your experiences in the comment section below.*


You can learn much more about this life changing, healing revelation, known as grounding or earthing in the outstanding  documentary: Grounded by Stephen Kroschel.

This documentary not only focuses on Stephen’s moving – 13 month personal journey but the amazing transformation of the entire town of Haines, Alaska.  A transformation that draws the attention of the scientific and medical communities. A transformation that confirms as Stephen says, ” an astounding inter-connectedness with the Universe that effects the tides, weather, seasons and every aspect of life we take for granted – right down to our veins”.

The movie tells the true tale of an Alaskan wildlife filmmaker’s persistent curiosity and quest to test the claims of what appears to be an outrageously simple and too good to be true healing concept physical, bare skin contact with the Earth which may have been known by civilizations throughout history.

New research has started to confirm the unexpected, that the surface of the Earth has healing power, like a gigantic treatment table.

A town was healed

He introduces this concept to his fellow townsmen in Haines, Alaska (population 1,700), many of whom suffer from major pain or disabling conditions.

Starting with his own pain relief, he witnesses and films a surprising and miraculous healing in the town generated by simply grounding people to the Earth, that is, reconnecting them to the Earth s healing energy. Even an orphaned moose calf named Karen participates in the healing.

The news of the town’s response draws the attention of Apollo astronauts who walked on the moon, as well as doctors and scientists. This movie will change the way you look at the Earth beneath your feet!

Grounding explained

“The surface of the Earth holds subtle health-boosting energy. All we have to do is touch it and become truly alive. In the documentary film Grounded, you can see this amazing phenomenon transform the life of people who had been struggling with health issues like chronic pain, and one man who had been wheelchair-bound for decades is able to walk again.

Even plants are drastically impacted when they are taken away from the Earth’s natural energy. Yet, the act of grounding, or Earthing, as it’s sometimes called, isn’t really an unusual phenomenon at all. It’s actually a natural act that virtually every living creature does instinctively.

Your Body Needs Its Connection to the Earth

In the film, you’ll see an orphaned baby moose that instinctively lies on an Earthing pad to connect him to the Earth while he’s being temporarily housed in a trailer. The moose goes to the pad whether it’s concealed or not.

This simple act, which can also be achieved by walking barefoot on the Earth, transfers free electrons from the Earth’s surface into your body that spread throughout your tissues.

The effect is sufficient to maintain your body at the same negatively charged electrical potential as the Earth. This simple process is called ‘grounding,’ and its effect is one of the most potent antioxidants we know of. Grounding has been shown to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, improve sleep, enhance well-being and much, much more.

Upon first learning of grounding, most agree that, in theory, it makes sense. But many are still skeptical, and I’m the first to admit that it is hard to believe… that is, until you experience it for yourself.

And the concept of grounding, and its necessity to human (and virtually ever living creature’s) health is not so much of a stretch when you consider that you are already dependent on and intricately intertwined with the Earth.

Every time you take a breath of air or a drink of water, or absorb the ultraviolet light from the sun, you are, in practice, connecting to the Earth and using it for your very survival. Grounding is really one more extension of this; one more way that your body is intelligently designed to co-exist as a part of nature.

Rubber and Plastic Shoes Disconnect You from the Earth’s Energy Flow

Chances are it’s been awhile since you’ve experienced the benefits of grounding, as most Americans spend most of their waking hours wearing shoes with rubber or plastic soles. These materials are very effective insulators, which is precisely whey they’re used to insulate electrical wires. Yet, they also effectively disconnect you from the Earth’s natural electron flow.

In the featured video above, Grounded, (in which I actually appear) you’ll see how poking holes in the soles of your shoes and inserting a grounding rod can allow you to stay grounded, as can special grounding shoes that are now available (sporadically).

Leather-soled shoes will also allow you to stay grounded with the Earth. Walking barefoot is one of the easiest and best ways to stay grounded, but you’ll need to do so on the proper surface.

Good grounding surfaces include:

  • Sand (beach)
  • Grass (preferably moist)
  • Bare soil
  • Concrete and brick (as long as it’s not painted or sealed)
  • Ceramic tile*

The following surfaces will NOT ground you:

  • Asphalt
  • Wood
  • Rubber and plastic
  • Vinyl
  • Tar or tarmac

In today’s world, this is more important than ever, yet fewer people than ever actually connect with the Earth in this way anymore. Free radical stress from exposure to mercury pollution, cigarettes, insecticides, pesticides, trans fats, and radiation, just to name a few, continually deplete your body of electrons.

Simply by getting outside, barefoot, touching the Earth, and allowing the excess charge in your body to discharge into the Earth, you can alleviate some of the stress continually put on your system. For example, walking barefoot can help ameliorate the constant assault of electromagnetic fields and other types of radiation from cell phones, computers and Wi-Fi.

Grounding Is an Anti-Inflammatory and Helps Thin Your Blood

One of the primary health benefits of grounding is its antioxidant effect. It helps alleviate inflammation throughout your body. The film shows examples of inflammation, demonstrated via thermography, that is significantly reduced following grounding.

This in itself is groundbreaking, since inflammation is at the root of most diseases, including heart disease.  Dr. Stephen Sinatra is a prominent cardiologist featured in Grounded. Dr. Stephen Sinatra is a prominent cardiologist and an innovative pioneer.  He promotes a number of natural strategies as “add-ons” to the field of cardiology, such as grounding or earthing.  Ten years ago, Dr. Sinatra met Clint Ober, who introduced him to grounding.” He’d done five years of post-graduate training in conventional medicine when, in 1977, he met Dr. Jacob Rinse, a 91-year old Dutch chemist who exposed him to alternative medicine.

“After that I studied some nutrition,” he says, “but I became a psychotherapist. I spent 10 years training in psychotherapy. I studied bioenergetic psychotherapy, which looks at energy blocks in the body.

That really helped launch me even more into alternative medicine. Then I decided that nutrition needed more work, so I studied for the American College of Nutrition exam, a test to certify a nutrition specialist.”

The Sunflower Experiment

Last year, Gary Schwartz, PhD, at the University of Arizona, performed an elegant experiment with sunflowers to demonstrate the powerful biological effects of grounding. As shown in the photos below, one set of sunflowers were connected to a grounded power outlet via a thin metal rod placed in the vase, connected to a wire.

The second set was connected to an outlet that was not grounded. All of the flowers were freshly picked, from the same area, at the same time, and the water came from the same source and had nothing added. The experiment was blind, so the experimenter was unaware of which outlet had been grounded.

As you can see, by the seventh day, one set is clearly wilting away, while the other still looks plump and fresh. As hypothesized, the set that kept their freshness were connected to the grounded outlet. Even more remarkable was the dramatic difference in overall survival — the grounded flowers survived for another 10 days after the ungrounded set had shriveled up and died!According to Clint Ober, this isn’t so surprising since flowers growing in the ground receive a continuous supply of energy from the earth. The grounding rod used in this experiment effectively mimics this natural ground connection, allowing them to thrive longer, as if they’d never been plucked in the first place. So, can this concept translate into better health for you? There’s compelling evidence it can, and does…

How Grounding Changes Your Blood

Grounding helps thin your blood by improving its zeta potential, which means it improves the energy between your red blood cells. Research has demonstrated it takes about 80 minutes for the free electrons from the earth to reach your blood stream and transform your blood.

Do you know what a high-sugar diet, smoking, radio frequencies and other toxic electromagnetic forces, emotional stress, anxiety, high cholesterol, and high uric acid levels do to your blood?

All of these make your blood hypercoagulable, meaning it makes it thick and slow-moving, which increases your risk of having a blood clot or stroke. Hypercoagulable blood is the essence of inflammation, because when your blood does not flow well, oxygen can’t get to your tissues. In fact, grounding’s effect on blood thinning is so profound if you are taking blood thinners you must work with your health care provider to lower your dose otherwise you may overdose on the medication.

Zeta potential is the electrical potential of solids and liquids, also referred to as electrokinetic potential. Your red blood cells repel each other and function at the speed of light, traveling through your body at an astounding 186,000 miles per second. Grounding actually increases zeta potential by an average of 280 percent. According to Dr. Sinatra:

“This is the most incredible discovery, because if you can increase the thinning of your blood naturally by grounding, you can fight off disease. Not only heart disease and stroke, but I’m thinking cancer, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, or any illness that requires good oxygenation to the tissues.”

Similarly, anything that lowers zeta potential of your blood will promote disease. For example, early (and some current) birth control pills were notorious for causing heart attacks in women. One of the mechanisms that causes this increased risk is that synthetic estrogens and progesterones increase blood viscosity, i.e., they decrease the zeta potential of your blood… There are currently studies being performed at the University of Arizona which will objectively document grounding effect on the zeta potential. They are anticipated to be completed this year.
