Grounding/Grounding is a practice that lasts all the time and modern new discovery at the same time… Earthing means nothing more than living in contact with the earth’s natural surface charge – that is, being grounded.
We all live and function in an electric way on an electric planet. Each of us is a sum of dynamic electrical circuits in which trillions of cells continuously transmit and receive energy as part of their programmed biochemical reactions. Your heart, brain, nervous system, muscles and immune system are prime examples of electrical subsystems working in your bioelectric body. The fact is that all your movements, behaviors and actions are only made possible by electricity. 1
Most people are not even aware of their bioelectric nature or the energetic connection between their body and the earth’s surface. Many of us don’t even realize that we’re now decoupled from Mother Nature. Our feet and the rest of our body rarely touch natural ground. We insulate ourselves with layers of clothing, rubber soles, mattresses, various chairs and other things.
Through science, we know that Earth’s electrons are inherently negatively charged. We need to stay in touch with The Earth so that our bodies can absorb these electrons naturally and charge with them. When we are “grounded,” we have absorbed these useful electrons that “reduce electrical imbalances in the body.” Since our body, like the earth, consists mainly of water and minerals, we are electrically conductive to each other.
If you are electrically grounded, you will most likely feel more centered, stronger, more balanced, more relaxed and less stressed.
The most effective way to ground yourself is to feel the connection between your soles and the earth by standing barefoot on the earth, in the sand, or even on the seabed. We are moving towards the winter half-year with its shorter, darker and colder days. Surely you too would like to stay more in your own warm and comfortable four warmths now. No problem, because you can also eat at home. 2
In order to help us stay in doors in contact with the Earth, Nikken has developed its KenkoGround®. The product must be plugged into a grounded socket and has a conductive fabric. When we place it on our bare skin, it reinforces the effect that direct contact with the Earth, our source of natural energies, has on us.
With the KenkoGround® you can ground yourself at any time of the day, but at night in sleep is the best time. By grounding in sleep, the body benefits from 6 to 8 hours of continuous grounding at a time when it experiences most of its healing and regeneration. When you sleep on kenkoGround®, tap a stream of useful electrons from the earth. For an optimal result, make sure that your bare skin is in contact with the KenkoGround®.
