Top 10 Health and Beauty Benefits of Getting Grounded

Grounding, also known as Earthing has been utilized for thousands of years.  It is only in recent history that the world seems to have forgotten about the miraculous healing energy that the earth provides.

The earth emits a healing anti aging energy in the form of electrons.  These electrons have an antioxidant effect on the body.

Throughout history humans have walked mostly barefoot or with footwear made from animal skins. Many people routinely slept on the bare ground or on animal hides. This gave them a direct contact with the healing energy of the earth, therefore receiving the earth’s healing energy “electrons” on a daily basis.

Unfortunately the introduction of footwear made with insulating rubber or plastic or composite soles, instead of the traditional leather soles, has separated mankind from contact with the earth’s electrical field and free electrons.

Also in today’s busy modern world, most people are not spending much time outdoors walking barefoot in the grass or on the beach, which are powerful ways to receive the earth’s healing energy.

The photos below show what happens when a person goes long periods without receiving the earth’s energy, or being “grounded”.








The blood become sticky and the cells clump together. This is a sign of unhealthy blood.  Dr. Mercola says that “ hypercoagulable  blood, is thick and slow-moving, which increases your risk of having a blood clot or stroke.

Your blood nourishes your cells 24 hours a day. It also carries away metabolic waste.  If the blood is sticky and thick, this process is not able to fully function.

The above thermography photo of the hands on the right side show that blood circulation is inadequate.  Thick sticky blood is slower to circulate throughout the body

The Photos below show what happens when a person receives the earth’s energy, or they get “grounded”.


Grounding also known as Earthing helps thin the blood.  In the photo on the left, the blood is now thinner and no longer clumped together.  It takes about 80 minutes of being grounded for the energy or “electrons” from the earth to reach your blood stream and transform your blood. This can significantly reduce your risk of stroke.
Notice how the circulation in the hands has also greatly improved.
Most of us do not have the time to spend several hours a day walking barefoot outside.

There is now a super easy and convenient way to receive the earth’s healing anti aging energy on a daily basis.

The Grounded Beauty Relaxation Mat is made of a highly conductive leatherette material that is soft and comfortable.  The mat works by plugging it into the grounded portion of the electrical socket, which is the third hole under the two holes. By sitting or sleeping on the mat, you received the healing energy from the earth.
The mat is portable and versatile.  You can sit on it while working at your desk, or watching tv or you can even sleep on it, which I highly recommend.

The Top 10 Beauty and Health Benefits of Getting Grounded

1. Reduces Inflammation

Inflammation is the #1 cause of aging. It also is the beginning cause of many chronic and age related diseases including cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes and cancer. Grounding has been shown to begin reducing inflammation in as little as 20 minutes.  Grounding also reduces inflammation following injury.

2. Reduces Pain

Most pain is due to inflammation.  When inflammation is reduced, pain is reduced.

3. Increases Circulation and Reduces Thickness of Blood

As you saw in the pictures above, grounding reduces the thickness of the blood.  Thick blood can lead to stroke and many other health issues.  When the blood is thin and not clumped together this improves circulation.  A big benefit of improved circulation is the improved nourishment of the skin from the inside out.  This can lead to more youthful skin.

4. Improved Sleep

Sleep issues effect millions of Americans.  One reason is due to high stress levels which elevate cortisol, which is a stress hormone.  What happens for many people is that when they finally lay down to go to sleep, they can not fall asleep due to high cortisol levels.  Or they may wake up in the middle of the night or early morning due to high cortisol levels and not be able to go back to sleep.  Research shows that sleeping while grounded can even out cortisol levels, promoting better sleep.  Twelve subjects were followed while sleeping grounded for 8 weeks. 11 reported they fell asleep much faster. All of the subjects reported waking up fewer times during the night.

5. Improves Melatonin Production

Melatonin is considered to be the most important hormone of the pineal gland. It promotes deep and restful sleep, supports the immune system, slows cell damage and aging.  It even improves energy and may inhibit the growth of cancer.

6.  Improves Glucose Levels

Patients with non insulin dependent diabetes were “grounded” for 72 hours. This resulted in a decrease in fasting glucose levels. This suggest that disconnection with the earth’s energy may be an overlooked factor in diabetes prevention and treatment.

7. Prevents Calcium and Bone Density Loss

Subjects were grounded for one night.  Blood and urine samples taken the next morning showed a reduction in blood and urinary calcium and phosphorus.  These findings directly relate to bone density and osteoporosis. Grounding or Earthing for just one night may reduce primary indicators of osteoporosis.

8. Decreases Stress and Improves Mood

  • Multiple studies show that “Grounding” has a stress-reducing effect including:
  • Normalized cortisol levels ( stress hormone)
  • Calming effect on electrical activity of the brain
  • Shift from overactive sympathetic nervous system to a calming mode within the sympathetic nervous system
  • Improvement of HRV Heart Rate Variability. Grounding improves HRV to a degree far beyond mere relaxation.

9. Increases Metabolic Rate

Metabolic syndrome refers to several risk factors including

  • Excess abdominal obesity
  • High Triglycerides
  • Blood Pressure
  • Glucose
  • Low high-density lipoprotein – known to increase heart disease and diabetes

Increased Metabolic Rate improves weight loss efforts.

10. Reduces PMS and Menopause Symptoms

In one study 5 out of 6 women reported decreased PMS and Menopause symptoms within 6 weeks or less

Grounding for Health and Beauty has big benefits.

If you can, spend more time outdoors barefoot.  Sit out in the backyard right on the grass, or in a lawn chair with your bare feet in the grass.

If you want to take the easiest, most convenient route, get a Grounded Beauty Relaxation Mat.   It is small investment that pays off big time.

What could be easier than sitting on a comfy mat while working or watching TV?  Better yet, why not sleep “grounded” every night.

The Grounded Beauty Relaxation Mat is a powerful simple tool that can greatly increase your health and definitely slow down the aging process.
