It is known that the Earth maintains a negative electrical potential on its surface. When you are in direct contact with the ground (walking, sitting, or laying down on the earth’s surface) the earth’s electrons are conducted to your body, bringing it to the same electrical potential as the earth. Living in direct contact with the earth grounds your body, inducing favorable physiological and electrophysiological changes that promote optimum health.
Your immune system functions optimally when your body has an adequate supply of electrons, which are easily and naturally obtained by barefoot contact with the Earth. Research indicates that electrons from the Earth have antioxidant effects that can help protect your body from inflammation, enhance better sleep, reduce stress levels and help prevent injury.
So while this brilliant summer weather continues, get out and enjoy it and our beautiful natural environment and soak up the benefits, literally and figuratively. Take your shoes off and walk barefoot on the sandy beach, the grassy paddock or pine needle forest floor and feel the benefits for your health, all for free !
