Earthing (2nd Edition)
By: Clinton Ober
EARTHING introduces readers to the landmark discovery that living in contact with the Earth’s natural surface charge – being grounded – naturally discharges and prevents chronic inflammation in the body. This effect has massive health implications because of the well-established link between chronic inflammation and all chronic diseases, including the diseases of ageing and the ageing process itself. Earthing is the simple solution to reduce and prevent inflammation and as easy as being barefoot outdoors or sleeping, working, relaxing indoors on conductive products that conveniently ground your body to the earth. The book documents how grounding the body consistently produces these and other common benefits: * Rapid reduction of inflammation * Rapid reduction or elimination of chronic pain * Dynamic blood flow improvement to better supply the cells and tissues of the body with vital oxygen and nutrition * Reduced stress * Increased energy * Improved sleep * Accelerated healing from injuries and surgery without the hot burning inflammatory pain Throughout history, humans have maintained an electrical ground connection with the Earth that naturally curbed inflammation disorder in the body. We walked barefoot and slept directly on the Earth. We were at all times naturally charged with the healing energy of the Earth. EARTHING shows us how to re-establish that link. Today, however, we mostly live and work insulated from the Earth. We wear non-conductive shoes with synthetic soles, walk on carpeted floors and sleep in elevated beds. We rarely go barefoot outside. We’re disconnected. Consequently, our bodies become chronically charged with inflammation. This unnatural development represents an overlooked reason why immune dysfunction and inflammation-related health disorders have dramatically proliferated over the last half-century, ravaging adults and children alike. We’ve lost our electrical roots, the Earth’s electrical ground that serves as our primordial anti-inflammatory protection. Earthing is a missing link in the health equation. This book tells why and what to do about it.
