(NaturalNews) Recent studies are highlighting the myriad of benefits of spending time connected to the earth. Humans, it would seem, are designed to stay in touch with the free and ever-present healing energy of the earth's surface. Simply walking outside barefoot can improve sleep, decrease stress levels, lower blood pressure and improve immune system function.

Modern medicine usually sidelines alternate health therapies that refer to energy forces that run throughout the body. These energies are sometimes referred to as "chakras" or "meridians" or "qi."
Traditional Chinese Medicine, from which the practice of acupuncture arose, centers on this belief. Disruptions, blockages or interruptions in the flow of energy running through the body are said to cause ill health by alternate practitioners. This concept now appears to be "grounded" in science.

Health benefits associated with connection to earth's energy

Dr. Oschman, who has impressive academic credentials and has worked in major research labs around the world, is an expert on energy medicine. His research outlines the many health benefits that result from spending time connected to earth's energy. Dr. Oschman describes the body as a living matrix comprised of semi-conductive material connected to every cell of the body.

The increase in chronic illness, inflammatory diseases and immune system dysfunction throughout the world has been linked to environmental factors (chemicals, pollution, toxic water). However, scientists now deliberate that it is not so much connection to the environment, but disconnection from the earth that may be responsible for the increase in diseases. And this disconnection may be as simple as wearing rubber or plastic soled shoes, or living in a high rise apartment block.

The earth's surface is electrically conductive and provides a continuous supply of free electrons. This energy field can create a stable bio-electrical environment in the human body, which assists in normalizing the function of the entire system. Wearing rubber or plastic soled shoes can effectively block the earth's goodness.

Regularly connecting to the earth is said to make the blood less viscous, resulting in lower blood pressure, according to Cardiologist Dr. Stephen Sinatra. Improvements in conditions such as chronic pain, difficulty sleeping, rheumatoid arthritis, PMS, sleep apnea, asthma and hypertension have been reported by those who have slept on grounded carbon fiber mattress pads.

The beneficial influence of earthing helps thyroid function and accelerates the body's immune response, according to Drs. Sokal - a father and son team.

How to practice grounding

Simply walk barefoot wherever possible, along the beach if possible, or on dewy grass if you are landlocked. Natural materials such as concrete and wood do allow earth's energy to flow through, but not if they are painted or varnished.
