Our ancestors were able to ground themselves simply by going barefoot outside. However, many people do not have the time to spend outdoors barefoot. We spend most of our time shielded indoors whether at home, in our cars, or at the office. Synthetic soles on our shoes further insulate us. Grounding sheets and products enable a person to harness the same healing effects even while sleeping! Grounding bands and mats further shield us from harmful EMF radiation emitted from computer screens and cell phones. Athletes who have grounded themselves report that they sleep better, recover faster, their injuries heal faster, and they have less illness.
Other claimed benefits of Grounding? Slowing of the aging process, relief of travel lag, helps autoimmune disorders such as Lupus, MS, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. According to the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, 2004, grounding while sleeping increases melanin and helps to re synchronize cortisol secretion. Please always consult your physician before using grounding products.
