✔ LESS STRESS, DEPRESSION & ANXIETY Studies have shown that earthing could improve heart rate variability, cardiovascular benefits, but also reduced stress and decreased anxiety and depression. Lowered stress levels could mean fewer headaches and even recovery from adrenal fatigue
✔ REDUCES INFLAMMATION Free electrons play an important role as antioxidants (The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine). With “Electron deficiency” (not enough contact with the earth’s surface), the immune system suffers and inflammation can’t be addressed and controlled as quickly as it should be. Once we’re able to neutralize the free radicals with the electrons from the earth, inflammation can begin to subside, and this is key to slowing or preventing so many chronic diseases.
✔ SLOWS THE AGING PROCESS Free radicals are some of the biggest offenders when it comes to aging, and if earthing is bringing balance to the body and neutralizing them, you’ll also be slowing down the aging process. Grounding’s effects on inflammation will also reduce premature aging, since inflammation is linked to not only the way you age on the outside, but also a number of diseases that a lot of people accept as a normal part of getting older.
✔ BETTER SLEEP A different study from The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that when subjects—especially females—slept in their own beds with conducive mattress pads, their nighttime cortisol levels dropped, they experienced better sleep, and were in less pain than they were before the study began. Better sleep may mean higher energy levels throughout the day.
✔ BETTER CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH Contact with the earth's natural energy thins the blood and reduces inflammation, resulting in better blood pressure and blood flow, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and heart attacks.
