Grounding, also known as earthing, refers to the practice of connecting with the Earth’s surface directly, typically by walking barefoot outdoors. Proponents claim various health benefits, including reduced inflammation, improved sleep, boosted immunity, and decreased stress levels. Advocates suggest that direct contact with the Earth’s electrons neutralizes free radicals, thereby reducing oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. Additionally, Grounding helps to regulate circadian rhythms, promoting better sleep, and enhancing overall well-being. While research on grounding’s health benefits is ongoing, many individuals report subjective improvements in their health and vitality from incorporating grounding practices into their daily routines.
