HEALTH TIPS OF THE MONTH
Plant Your Feet On The Earth!
Isn’t it interesting to think that there is now an emerging science documenting how conductive contact with the Earth is highly beneficial to your health? Human beings, creatures and even birds have been walking bare feet and sleeping under the stars, on the ground, since the beginning of our origins. Somehow with the modernization of our lives, we have been slowly losing our continuous connection to this natural phenomena, part of our long time inner programming, but we are surely coming back to it.
The Earth maintains a negative electrical potential on its surface, and when in direct contact with the ground by walking, sitting, or laying down on the earth’s surface, the earth’s electrons are conducted to our body, bringing it to the same electrical potential as the earth. We are Energy! Nature has provided conductive energetic systems within your body that deliver electrons from your feet to all parts of your body. It grounds us, inducing favourable physiological and electrophysiological changes promoting optimum health, and now protecting us from exposure to electromagnetic pollution. With an adequate supply of electrons, our immune system functions are enhanced, and these electrons can also provide antioxidant effects that protect our body from inflammation.
Multiple studies have documented Earthing’s improvement in blood viscosity, inflammation, heart rate variability, endocrine and autonomic nervous systems, sleep and reduced effects of muscle tensions and stress.
Have you ever noticed how much more relaxed and how well you slept when returning from a hiking or camping trip? Well, when you ground yourself to the electron-enriched earth, an improved balance of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system occurs, letting go of the ongoing fight and flight response linked to our demanding life styles, and than your body can enter a more friendly, balanced, and healing mode of functioning.
Taking the time everyday to walk on the grass and to sit and meditate under a tree can be just what you need!

But only he who sees, takes off his shoes.”
