Grounding, also known as earthing, refers to the practice of connecting directly with the Earth's surface, typically by walking barefoot on natural surfaces like grass, soil, or sand. While research on grounding is still evolving, some potential benefits have been suggested, although more studies are needed to fully understand the extent of these effects. Here are some potential benefits associated with grounding:

Reduced Inflammation:

 Some studies propose that grounding may help reduce inflammation in the body. Inflammation is linked to various chronic diseases, and the Earth's electrons are believed to have anti-inflammatory effects.

Improved Sleep:

Grounding has been associated with better sleep quality. It is thought to help regulate cortisol levels, promoting a more balanced circadian rhythm and improved sleep patterns.

Stress Reduction:

Grounding is believed to have a calming effect on the nervous system. Connecting with the Earth may help reduce stress and promote relaxation.

Improved Mood:

Some individuals report enhanced mood and a sense of well-being after grounding. The practice may influence the release of neurotransmitters and hormones that contribute to mood regulation.

Balanced Energy Levels:

Grounding is believed to help balance the body's energy levels by promoting the free flow of electrons, which are essential for various physiological processes.

Better Circulation:

Walking barefoot on natural surfaces may stimulate the feet's nerve endings and improve circulation. This can positively affect cardiovascular health.

Enhanced Immune Function:

There is some speculation that grounding may support the immune system by reducing inflammation and promoting overall health.

We're all living disconnected. 

In our modern society, we no longer sleep on the ground or walk barefoot everywhere we go, like our ancestors did. We wear shoes and live in houses that shelter us from the elements but in doing so, we’ve disconnected ourselves from this important source of electrons.

As long as you are grounded, your body continues to absorb enough electrons to maintain the same electrical potential as the earth. This amount of electrons varies significantly between people depending upon their lifestyle and activity, and it is impossible to measure.


Our ancestors were grounded 24/7, so generally the more you get grounded the better. That being said, 30 minutes is the minimum amount of time recommended to be grounded each day.

Depending on where you live and what season it is, it’s not always possible to be outdoors barefoot every day. In that case, and/or to spend more time grounded each day, use Earthing® products when you’re indoors! 

You can think about Earthing® products as extension cords that connect you to the ground outside. You shouldn’t have to suffer through terrible weather and unsafe conditions to connect to the earth each day. Instead, you can safely and easily connect with Earthing® products.
