From High Octane Coffee to collagen protein, wellness heads are always on the hunt for the next best thing to optimize brain power. You don’t have to go to Whole Foods to start Earthing — this trend is free and can be found in your backyard.
Earthing is a wellness trend founded on the truth that the Earth has energy and nutrients flowing through it, and that the energy can be transferred directly to those who are in direct contact with earth — like grass, sand and soil. Even more, because humans are positively charged with electrons, the Earth is negatively charged and brimming with free-flowing electrons that balance out human bodies through the absorption of negative electrons.
Earthing isn’t new, the trend has simply risen again. First National people and Native Americans, as well as many European cultures, have advocated for Earthing’s merits for generations. Earthing has recently found a niche in North America thanks to Clinton Ober, researcher and author, who advocates for Earthing as “the most important health discovery ever.”
The physical benefits of Earthing are:
- the solution for chronic inflammation
- poor sleep
Clinton Ober’s book argues that, because humans’ physical disconnect with the Earth creates abnormal physiology and contributes to inflammation, pain, fatigue, stress, and poor sleep, reconnecting to the Earth relieves symptoms rapidly and recovery from injury and pain is accelerated.
