Earthing or grounding is a movement based on the discovery that connecting to the Earth’s natural energy is advantageous to wellbeing. The Earth’s mild negative charge has many health benefits when there is direct contact to its surface. Earthing technology such as mats and patches have been created to simulate this negative charge for today’s busy lifestyle. Decreased levels of pain, inflammation and stress as well as an increase in circulation, improved sleep and acceleration in muscle soreness recovery have been reported. This is an alternative approach to pain management and inflammation.
MEDICAL ADVISORY: Research indicates that Earthing the body affects physiological functioning in a variety of ways. Patients taking blood thinners, blood sugar regulators, blood pressure or thyroid medications, should consult their doctor prior to using Earthing products to monitor the medication as an adjustment may be necessary.
