Re-connecting to the Earth helps to preserve and perpetuate optimum wellness,
both physically and psychologically. Regard Earthing (aka grounding) as a FREE, simple,
effortless, and natural form of anti-aging and preventive medicine, whether you perceive
conscious benefits or not. I would think that Earthing, initiated in youth, would
preserve a generally healthy condition throughout a lifetime. We are Earthly beings,
designed to live on this particular planet, this spinning ball, floating in space.
Earthing is our intimate, personal connection to this inexhaustible source of rejuvenation.
Like a worn down battery receiving a charge, our bodies naturally respond to this
life-giving energy from our Mother Earth. To me, it just seems like such an incredibly
I have tallied up all the reviews on Amazon for seven different Earthing devices.
Out of 734 opinions, 72% expressed either a 5 star (63%) or 4 star (9%) rating. Some
pretty good odds, I would surmise... However, there are those who aren't aware of
any health improvements. Everyone is totally unique, with a unique destiny. Understand,
Earthing itself doesn't cure anything, it simply provides the necessary energy and
support for the body to self-heal. Time, and patience are key factors. Whatever ailments
you may have took a lifetime to manifest. Accordingly, it may take a length of time
to see results, or not. Some people experience near-immediate changes, perhaps you
will be one of those... My suggestion - give it at least a year before passing any
judgment. What do you have to lose, or gain?
The book “Earthing” is available at Amazon, and many other sources. This publication
is generally considered to be the “Bible” of Grounding, and the ultimate informational
resource. Be sure to get the 2nd edition.
There is much more information available on the Internet, do a web search. There
are also many videos on the subject available on YouTube as well.
*** Of course, the ultimate Earthing practice is simply walking on the Earth barefoot,
as our ancestors did. But, how many of us in this modern world are able to do this
consistently on a daily basis. Practicality dictates another method. This is where
Earthing devices come in, they allow us to connect with the energy of the planet
practically anywhere. I have utilized various commercial devices over the years,
and have also designed and built several for specific purposes. I just thought it
might be useful for others to display these tools, perhaps they will inspire some
of your own creations.
My Earthing Tools...
Energy for Life
We experimented with an aluminum window screen bed pad. It's highly conductive and
cheap to construct, about $20 total cost. And, it should last pretty much forever.
But, there are downsides: You can feel the rough texture under a sheet, it tends
to fold up in spots and become lumpy, and wires sometimes poke through the taped
Wrist/ankle (body) bands are probably the most universally useful tools. They can
be utilized pretty much anywhere, including in bed. I have the standard commercial
orange bands stationed at various places around the house, grounded through electrical
outlets. However, they eventually stretch to the point of un-usability. So, I constructed
one from a conductive watch band, with a copper insert. It's highly conductive, and
long-term durable. I use this at the location where I spend the most waking time.
I constructed this as a halo, for localized head/brain therapy. Easy to build, it's
just heavy copper wire, what I would call elegant simplicity. >
This is a conductive pad for localized pain and general therapy anywhere.
I constructed these glasses because I have an eye injury and they allow me to place
the grounding contact directly on my eyelid. >
Conductive socks utilizing 2 cords allow
electrons from the earth to flow up through both feet and legs simultaneously.
Grounded bed sheets are perhaps the most important tool in the box for several reasons:
This is the time period when your body is in rejuvenation mode, you have full body
contact with the sheet, and because of the extended time spent in contact with them.
We initially purchased the standard commercial sheets, but they only lasted about
a year before becoming non-conductive. The next experiment was with window screen
(photo below). Subsequently, we purchased some premium, highly conductive (1 ohm/sq)
cloth and stitched it onto a standard fitted sheet. This is conductive enough that
it functions well underneath a regular [cotton] sheet, and through sleep clothing.
Thus, it should last indefinitely since it is not directly exposed to body oils and
wear. It is wired directly to a dedicated ground rod, through a .1 amp fuse. The
cloth is called Technicot.
Note: It is highly advisable to periodically test all devices for conductivity with
a multimeter or one of the commercial testers that are available.
