Greetings earthlings and happy Earth Day! I wish much health and happiness to all of you and to your beloved planet. I come from far away to join you in this special celebration and appreciation of your wonderful world. It’s a noble cause and absolutely makes sense to support and to work for a cleaner, greener home environment. When the Earth is healthier, you earthlings are healthier too. In fact, increased direct skin contact with dirt, grass, sand, and sea, adds to your potential for good, grounded health. In case you’re wondering what the heck I’m talking about, I’m referring to earthing or grounding which is something anyone may do any time of year.
Earthing – Nuts & Bolts
Hey folks, I’m back to being fellow earthling Susan again and I’d like to continue our down-to-earth discussion. If you think about it, way back when and throughout time actually, human beings, like all mammals, have always had a lot of up close, skin-to-skin contact with the Earth. Whether sitting, standing, squatting, resting, playing, hunting, walking, running, or sleeping, just about everything we did and how we lived meant being in direct contact with the Earth every day. “Okay, right and, so what?” you ask.
Fact: We are all bioelectrical beings living on an electrical planet.1 Overtime, our body develops a positive charge that is slowly dispelled when we touch or make direct contact with the Earth which is negatively charged. The negative electrons of the Earth passing through the bottoms of our feet or other body part help to balance the positive electrons in our body. So, when we’re disconnected from the earth, the positive charge in our body builds excessively and this ultimately depletes our energy, and promotes inflammation and disease.
