When I was a child I loved running around barefoot all of the time. My mother could not keep a pair of shoes on my feet. Feeling the earth against my feet felt wonderful; whether it was mud squishing between my toes or soft grass below my feet it felt good. Now research is saying that going barefoot is more healthy than first realized.
According to cardiologist Stephen Sinatra M.D, “I believe that by walking barefoot, you allow your body to draw in the Earth’s electrons and discharge harmful electro-pollution. The simple act of grounding yourself to the earth decreases inflammation, lowers stress, increases calmness, and helps to relieve pain.”
One of the most powerful benefits of “Grounding” is the amazing way it lowers blood pressure. One of the causes of high blood pressure is the hyper-viscosity of blood. Because the blood is thick it had a difficult time moving through the circulatory system, the result being high blood pressure.
So if you want to start grounding here are a few tips:
- Simply go barefoot outside if conditions allow. Just 40 minutes a day can make a difference.
- Grass, sand, dirt, and concrete are all conductive surfaces from which your body can draw the Earth’s electrons.
- Wood and vinyl are not conductive surfaces.
- If going barefoot outside isn’t realistic, a warm basement with a concrete floor will also work. Simply sit there and read or just relax with your bare feet resting on the ground.
- Sleep or relax on a specially-designed grounding device.
