De Flora et al. wrote the following: “Since the late 20th century, chronic degenerative diseases have overcome infectious disease as the major causes of death in the 21st century, so an increase in human longevity will depend on finding an intervention that inhibits the development of these diseases and slows their progress” 

Could such an intervention be located right beneath our feet? Earthing research, observations, and related theories raise an intriguing possibility about the Earth's surface electrons as an untapped health resource—the Earth as a “global treatment table.” Emerging evidence shows that contact with the Earth—whether being outside barefoot or with special grounding shoes" or indoors connected to grounded conductive systems. 

Environmental medicine focuses on interactions between human health and the environment, including factors such as compromised air and water and toxic chemicals, and how they cause or mediate disease. Omnipresent throughout the environment is a surprisingly beneficial, yet overlooked global resource for health maintenance, disease prevention, and clinical therapy: the surface of the Earth itself. It is an established fact that the Earth's surface possesses a limitless and continuously renewed supply of free or mobile electrons. The surface of the planet is electrically conductive (except in limited ultradry areas such as deserts), and its negative potential is maintained (i.e., its electron supply replenished) by the global atmospheric electrical circuit. 

Mounting evidence suggests that the Earth's negative potential can create a stable internal bioelectrical environment for the normal functioning of all body systems. Moreover, oscillations of the intensity of the Earth's potential may be important for setting the biological clocks regulating body rhythms, such as cortisol secretion . 

It is also well established that electrons from antioxidant molecules neutralize free radicals involved in the body's immune and inflammatory responses. The National Library of Medicine's online resource PubMed lists thousands of studies and review articles from a search of “antioxidant + electron + free radical”. It is assumed that the influx of free electrons absorbed into the body through direct contact with the Earth likely neutralize free radicals and thereby reduce acute and chronic inflammation. Throughout history, humans mostly walked barefoot or with footwear made of animal skins. They slept on the ground or on skins. Through direct contact or through perspiration-moistened animal skins used as footwear or sleeping mats, the ground's abundant free electrons were able to enter the body, which is electrically conductive. Through this mechanism, every part of the body could equilibrate with the electrical potential of the Earth, thereby stabilizing the electrical environment of all organs, tissues, and cells. 

From a practical standpoint, clinicians could recommend outdoor “barefoot sessions” to patients, weather, and conditions permitting. Numerous clinical studies have observed that going barefoot as little as 30 minutes daily can significantly reduce pain and stress. Obviously, there is no cost for barefoot grounding. However, the use of conductive systems while sleeping, working, or relaxing indoors offer a more convenient and routine-friendly approach. A search of the internet produces many articles that discuss the benefits of connecting to the earth naturally, as well as offers of grounding mats, rods and other devices that can take the place of this for those who cannot spend 30 minutes outside each day.  

Possible benefits of either approach to earthing are:  

-Reduction in chronic stress,  

-Improved Autonomic Nervous System Function, 

-Decrease inflammation 

- Pain Relief 

-Decreased Heart Rate Variability 

-Improvement in many other common health disorders, including other cardiovascular disease.  

-Better Sleep 

The research done supports the concept that grounding or earthing the human body may be an essential element in the health equation along with sunshine, clean air and water, nutritious food, and physical activity. J Environ Public Health 2012. The shoes we wear for the most part unless you wear special "grounding shoes" block the earth's effects. It should be noted that spending time in our Energy Enhancement System puts a charge on your cells that is similar to this earthing process and can give you the same health benefits. Regeneration Station in the only place in Pensacola you can experience this amazing technology.
