Barefoot and Grounded

My kids dong some "Earthing" during our last camping trip.

Our separation from the Earths natural resources has left us with a multitude of health problems, including chronic pain, fatigue, poor sleep, lack of concentration, depressed, and just plain frustrated! Did you know a lot of these symptoms are caused by exposure of positive Ions? Yep! We are talking electrical current here. We are exposed to these positive Ions a few different ways. The most obvious is well.. Technology. We are bombarded on a daily basis by positive ions with the continuous use of electronics, our computers, tablets, cell phone..oh my! Then there is the Reactive oxygen species (ROS). I know, I was thinking the same thing.. What in the world is ROS?

Our bodies have evolved a means of destroying bacteria and viruses by generating these reactive oxygen species (ROS), that are delivered by our immune cells. These ROS do exactly what they are designed to do, but they can also cause extensive damage to our healthy tissues in the process.

So what does that have to do with any of this?

ROS are usually positively charged molecules that need to be neutralized to prevent damage to the healthy tissues. So what can we do to re balance?

We luckily have been blessed with natural resources to help neutralize, and well.. Keep us grounded. It is readily available, and right outside your back door. Your very own backyard! Ever wonder why you instantly feel better when you remove those shoes and sink your feet into the sand along the beach, or feel the warm dirt below the soft fresh grass?

Earth maintains a negative electronic potential on its surface. Our ancestors had a simple solution, “Earthing”. Earthing is a fast-growing movement based upon the discovery that connecting to the Earth’s natural energy is foundational for vibrant health. When we walk barefoot, sit directly on the surface, it brings your body to the same electronic potential as the earth, in other words.. It is “grounding”.

Research shows that electrons from the earth also have antioxidant effects on our bodies. These antioxidants can protect your body from inflammation. Science has documented the connection between inflammation and many known chronic diseases, including the diseases of aging. “Earthing” can help reduce and prevent these diseases.

So now that we know the overload of positive ions attacking our system creates free radicals, generally upsetting our well-being. What do you do? Take those shoes off , get grounded, and soak up some of that earthy goodness!! 

Thankfully it does not stop there,  another natural resource to help counteract these feelings by increasing the negative ions around us is Essential oils. There are essential oils that you can use daily that when diffused increases negative ions, which in turn helps promote an uplifting atmosphere keeping your family happy, healthy, and grounded.  CLICK HERE TO GET GROUNDED!
