Can Earthing Help Reduce Inflammation in the Body? Here’s What You Need to Know!

Steve Dalloway – March 2023

Living in a world filled with rapidly evolving technology and gadgets can easily alienate us from nature, but did you know that making a conscious effort to connect with the earth can ultimately do wonders for your health? The practice of earthing, or grounding, is a concept that has been around for decades now, and is gaining popularity in the health and wellness community. It involves being in direct contact with the earth – either by walking barefoot on grass or sand, using specially designed indoor earthing products or sleeping outdoors. But can earthing help reduce inflammation in the body? Let’s dive in and find out!

Inflammation is the body’s way of fighting off harmful bacteria and viruses, but when it becomes chronic, it can lead to a plethora of health issues such as heart disease, arthritis, and cancer. Studies show that earthing can help reduce inflammation by lowering the levels of inflammatory markers in the body. A study published in the Journal of Inflammation Research found that participants who used indoor earthing products showed a significant decrease in inflammation, pain, and better sleep quality. In another study, grounded participants showed a decrease in red blood cell clumping, which can lead to inflammation in the body.

Earthing is also believed to have a positive effect on stress and anxiety levels. A 2017 study found that earthing helped reduce cortisol (a stress hormone) in the body and improve heart rate variability, resulting in a relaxed state. Chronic stress is known to cause inflammation in the body, so this finding is particularly interesting.

The benefits of earthing and earthing products don’t stop there. Research suggests that grounding can improve sleep quality, boost immunity, and promote wound healing. According to Dr. Stephen Sinatra, a renowned cardiologist, earthing can even help regulate the body’s electrical system and balance the autonomic nervous system.

So, how can you incorporate earthing into your everyday life? The easiest and most affordable way to start is by walking barefoot on grass, sand or soil, allowing your body to connect with the earth’s natural energy. You can also purchase indoor earthing products such as grounding mats, sheets, and pillows. These products are designed with a conductive material that connects you to the earth’s energy even when you’re indoors. Sleeping outdoors is another option that will allow you to experience the benefits of earthing all through the night. But in the winter that’s just really not an option…..  Earthing whilst you work is also possible with products like Earthing Mats you can put your bare feet on or under your keyboard.

In summary, earthing has gained recognition as one of the simplest ways to reduce inflammation, stress, and improve overall health. It’s an effortless, natural and cost-effective way to connect with nature and reap the benefits that come with it. Whether you choose to walk barefoot on grass, use earthing products, or sleep outdoors, the key is to make earthing a part of your daily routine. It’s time to start reconnecting with our roots again and experience the incredible benefits of earthing.
